Each month, I challenge the members of my Stampin' Clubs to create a project for a contest and submit it to me. I assign a theme for them each month. Everyone in the Clubs then votes on their favorite 2 entries and the top entries win their creators a $5 coupon to use on their next order.
For April, I challenged them to create projects using ribbon. Products don't have to be current, but they do have to be Stampin' Up!
All the projects submitted this time were truly amazing and voting was really, really close. We ended up with a tie for first place with both winning entries receiving 6 votes each.
