Special Card Class & Contest: Join Paper Maniac for a card class and contest using this wonderful Basic Grey Class kit. Not only will you be able to complete a beautiful set of coordinated Christmas cards in a reasonable length of time, but you will have a chance to win PRIZES that include Unity Stamp kits, papers, Petaloo flowers, ribbons, gift certificates and more!

The contest begins immediately and ends on November 15. Prizes will be awarded November 18. The more you play, the more chances you have to win! Here's how it will work:

*Purchase the Basic Grey Class kit here. You are then automatically entered and receive your first chance!

*Follow the class directions to complete the four cards described. Post a photo of your completed class cards for another entry. Feel free to add stamped images or other touches to make them yours. However, the card must be recognizable as class cards.

*Follow the class directions to complete the four tags described. Post a photo of your completed class tags for another entry. Feel free to add stamped images or other touches to make the tags yours. However, the tags must be recognizable as class tags.

*Continue using the leftover class materials (and there will be plenty of them) to make additional cards, tags or gifts. You may add additional cardstock or other items from your stash, but at least 75% of your card or craft needs to be from the class materials.

*Post your creation for another entry. Post as many as you can get out of the materials. EACH posted card, tag or creation will gain you another entry into the contest.

*Your entries may be posted in the Paper Maniac Gallery or the Splitcoast Gallery with the keyword PMCLASS, or you may post it on your blog with a message posted on my blog here. It is very important to use the keyword when posting in a gallery so we can find your entry and you get proper credit.

On November 16 or 17, Patti will email you with your ticket numbers - one for each entry.

On November 18, Patti will use to select the winning numbers and will post a list of the winning ticket numbers on the store blog. Additionally, a participation winner will be selected based on the highest total number of entries.
