We are a papercraft challenge blog offering two challenges each month - a Main Challenge and a Mini Challenge.

Join in and have some creative fun! We have amazing sponsors and there are GREAT prizes to be won.


2021 Rules

 




Main Challenge

The Main Challenge board contains a Word Inspiration and a Creative Challenge. Both parts must be incorporated into your project.

Word InspirationYou must use the word as inspiration. We need to be able to see on your project how the word inspired you. If the inspiration isn't obvious, then you MUST explain how you were inspired in your entry blog post. The inspiration word itself does not have to appear on the project, but it can if you wish. 
When judging, priority will be given to projects that clearly show our challenge inspiration.

Creative Challenge: The board also contains a creative challenge (technique, colour, product or other). You must incorporate the creative challenge on your project and again, when not obvious, you need to explain how you interpreted the creative challenge in your entry blog post.

The Main Challenge is open to any type of project except  a card, tag, ATC* or postcard.   These can be entered in our Mini Challenges.

Combine our challenge with as many others as you like.

You may enter as many times as you wish.

All projects must be new and posted on or after the date of the challenge. Older postings and projects are not eligible.

The Main Challenge goes live on the 1st of the month and the deadline to enter is the last day of the month at 11:55 pm EST.

The winners, as voted by the DT, and the Guest Designer will be announced on the blog on the 8th of the following month.

REGIONAL PRIZES:  As our prizes are now region-based, a minimum number of entries per region must be reached.  For the Main Challenge, that minimum is FIVE (5) entries for any given region. If we receive less than FIVE entries for any region, there will be no prize issued for that region.

To enter, create a post on your blog, Facebook, or Instagram pages about your project.  A copy of the challenge board MUST appear in your post as well as a link to the More Than Words Challenge blog.  (If you are entering through Instagram, instead of a link you can tag us @MTW_challenge instead, but a copy of the challenge board MUST still be included.)  Then link your post to the inLinkz tool at the bottom of our challenge reveal blog post.  Please be sure to include your name and country in your InLinkz title.

Mini Challenge

The Mini Challenge board contains one word of inspiration.

The Mini Challenge is open to cards, tags, postcards and ATCs* only.  No layouts, canvases, art journal pages or OTPs** are accepted.

All projects must be new and posted on or after the date of the challenge. Older postings and projects are not eligible.

The Mini Challenge goes live on the 16th of the month and the deadline to enter is on the last day of the month at 11:59 pm EST.

The Mini Challenge is now held on our blog.  Please enter the challenge using the inLinks tool at the bottom of the challenge post.  The Mini Challenge is no longer held on our Facebook page!

The winners of the Mini Challenge, as voted for by the DT, will be announced on the blog on the 6th of the following month.

REGIONAL PRIZES:  As our prizes are now region-based, a minimum number of entries per region must be reached.  For the Mini Challenge, that minimum is THREE (3) entries for any given region. If we receive less than THREE entries for any region, there will be no prize issued for that region.

The Mini Challenge is designed to be quick and fun!
