Starting with the winners in Round 2 there will be prizes awarded. Round 2 winners will all receive an exclusive, brandnew, CU Grab Bag from theStudio Designers. All NDC events will be judged by theStudio Designer & Admin teams only. There will not be public voting.

The winner of this years NDC will receive a brandnew Silhouette CAMEO®, as well as a contract as a Studio Design Team Member. Prizes and participation rules will be published by September 1, 2012.

I am really looking forward to seeing you all this year!

Smooches,

Thumbs up Re: Next Designer Contest: September 2012

I've been looking forward to this. I've always enjoyed this contest. But I'm not entering again this year. I quite selling early this year, and have no desire to reenter the market. I still design and give away freebies on my blog, but this was the very first place I entered a design contest and did so for three years. Last year I decided I would not enter a fourth time. I was just moving from one state to another the first of September, then in the middle of the month my SIL passed away, which required a trip out of state for the funeral. Had I entered, it would have been deju vu. Out due to circumstances beyond my control like 2008. This year I'll be content to maybe play along if I have time, and to watch what everyone else comes up with. And give some encouragement to those who do enter. Now I'm off to blog about the contest,'cause this is such a learning experience and a lot of fun.

We will miss you! I didn't realize you stopped designing. I know September is frequently a tough month for people, but for you it's been very tough.

If I see interest, we can put up a play-along gallery as well.

Smooches!

Christine, we can have a play-along for our Design Team. I think I can whip up a little prize for the winner

Welcome to all of you! I hate this part... waiting until September 1 to roll around.

I have a Cameo and what a great prize for the winner, combining it's uses with digital kits is great.

Oh I am SO in!! I was a designer a few years ago (Jeanette Bollinger Designs at the time) and I took a break from designing to concentrate on my businesses (photography and logo design). But I have been thinking about getting back into it so this is an awesome way to jump back in!! Can't wait for the first!!!!
