If you like blog hops, if you like WOW! projects, and if you like over-the-top inspiration, you must hop through the 2011 Artisan Award-Winning Blog Hop.
Every year, Stampin’ Up! recognizes ten of the most creative and talented SU! demonstrators with the Artisan Award. Entries are judged on creativity and style, craftsmanship, composition, color, and consistency. The competition is stiff, the rules are stringent, and the process intimidating — but the rewards are great!
I was so happy to read that this year’s winners are participating in a 10-day hop — amazing! Begin at Connie Collins’ blog, Constantly Stamping, and she’ll lead you to the next winner. Be sure to visit each day (the hop started yesterday), as the Artisan Award is based on the totality of the submitter’s entries, not just one or two projects.
There’s nothing like seeing all the projects from all the winners displayed live at Convention (I shared a project from one of last year’s winners in this post), but prepare to be amazed!
