Contests & Prizes : Contest - Design our Blog Header!!!

Posted by


Our first contest!!   We thought that it was time to add some variety to our headers (the title portion for our blog) and thought that it would be fun to have a contest to design it.  Initially we thought the header would  have some craft technique incorporated into it - but  are excited to see what you are inspired to do.



The winner of the contest will receive a copy of the Martha Stewart Craft Encyclopedia.


Please e-mail your entries to  The file should be a JPEG 650px wide by 158px high.  Submissions are due by May 22nd - our favorites will be posted on May 25th for you to vote on  - and we will announce the winner on June 1st.  Official Rules

  • [...] Stewart Crafts needs your help designing their new blog header - and you could win a great book [...]

  • Is the text "The Craft Department" or are you also looking for other title suggestions?

  • Crafter Comment:

    The title should read The Crafts Dept.

  • This sounds like so much fun, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

  • All of Martha Stewart's crafts have been very interesting to make and to give to my friends they are just in awe of them. I am enjoying watching her shows and making the different thing that she has on there.

  • Does the JPEG file need to be optimized for the web?

  • Crafter Comment:

    no, but if the colors appear funny on your screen, you could try it.

  • [...] Design the Martha Stewart Blog Header and win a copy of the Martha Stewart Craft Encyclopedia. [...]

  • Doing crafts are some of my favorite things to do, along with my quilting, just learning something new is exciting.

  • Can we submit two entries? Can we incorporate the Martha Stewart official logo?

  • Crafter Comment:

    yes - you can submit more that one entry.

    The title of the blog needs to remain "the crafts dept." - if you want to incorporate the logo into it that would be fine.
