We’re so excited to announce the 3rd annual Ucreate awards!
Can you believe we’ve featured over 1,400 tutorials in 2011? Me either….so you can probably imagine the work that goes into picking our top ten each year (thank you Google Analytics!).
We can’t announce awards without prizes right? We would love to give away thousands of prizes to all of you, however I’m just not Oprah so we have to narrow it down to ten!
All top ten winners will each receive a $20 gift certificate to the craft store of their choice…
…and our tutorial of the year winner will also receive…
…their very own Silhouette CAMEO machine and a fabric ink starter kit!
Let’s get this party started…
Sibylle showed us how she transformed some plain cork wedges into stylish shoes using Mod Podge and fabric!
Jill taught us how to entertain our children for hours by turning plastic bottles into colored bowling pins!
Sarah took two white t-shirts and transformed them into this beautiful top inspired by Anthropologie. The pleats are gorgeous!
Using 3 simple products (shadowbox with glass, sticky notes, and a marker) Stephanie taught us how to make this erasable to-do list!
Sierra turns an inexpensive canvas tote into a beautiful embellished bag using ruffles and rosettes!
Thanks to Ashlee, many little girls had a beautiful Rapunzel cake for their birthday this year!
Elizabeth & Elizabeth are known for their gorgeous DIY skirts and they sure didn’t disappoint with this amazing starboard skirt! They also came out with a beautiful fall version, too!
People everywhere were emailing me pics of their babies & kids wearing this paper tee by Rachel. Teachers loved this, too! She showed us this simple tutorial using masking tape and paint!
Wow this was a hot tutorial this year!! A publisher even asked iCandy Handmade if they could use it in their book. What a genius idea to turn a plain cupboard into an art desk!
…and the Ucreate tutorial of the year goes to…
Due to the high volume of people using this tutorial I’m sure this…
…was selling like crazy off the shelves!
Katy gave us a new technique where we could completely customize our fabric projects. Readers were using this tutorial to design personalized throw pillows, blankets, clothing items, and so much more!
Katy, enjoy your brand new Silhouette CAMEO machine and fabric kit!!
Congratulations to every one of you!!
I’m thrilled to see what’s in store for 2012!
Also, a HUGE thank you to Silhouette for being our Tutorial of the Year Awards sponsor this year!
