The Handmade Charlotte Family Craft Challenge judges (in alphabetical order): Jessica Bailey (Party Stylist, Evite), Jessie Bandy (Marketing Associate, Tea Collection), Ali DeJohn (Founder, The Makerie), Rachelle Francey (Founder, Kenziepoo), Jan Halvarson (Co-Founder, Poppytalk), Debbie Henley (VP Marketing, Plaid Enterprises), Mallie Lanham (Community Manager, Cricut), Ez Pudewa (Founder, Creature Comforts), Paula Puleo (Chief Marketing Officer, Michaels Stores), Sarah Reisert (Community Manager, The Honest Company), Ed Roth (Founder, Stencil1), Gabrielle Blair (Founder, Design Mom)
A little over a month ago, we challenged our readers to create an original craft project using our new line of stencils (available at Michaels Stores) for a chance to win one of three seriously loaded prize packages. To say we were unprepared for the quality level of the projects we received would be a major understatement. You guys are seriously talented! You definitely didn’t make the job easy for our judges:)
Who wins? You decide!
Now it’s up to all of you to decide who wins. Simply choose your favorite project from the five listed below and cast your vote in the comments (only vote once!). We’ll announce the winners of the Grand Prize, First Runner-Up Prize, and Second Runner-Up Prize on Thursday, October 17th (see the complete list of prizes here).
