Silhouette Free Shape of the Week Linky Party Announcement!

Happy New Year Everyone! With this amazing new year also come new ideas and changes. I will be giving my site a make-over during the next month or so. It's a slow process, but I've got a lot of ideas. I have also closed down my Etsy shop for the time being. (For those of you who didn't know I had one, sorry. I was testing out Etsy and am now moving a different direction.)

Silhouette Free Shape LINK PARTY Begins February 2nd!

With this wonderful new year comes some announcements. I've decided to try a Blog Party out on my site and to begin with I have decided to hold a monthly "Silhouette Free Shape" party. This is meant to help Silhouette users in two ways:
  1. Motivate all of us to use shapes we can get for FREE!
  2. Inspire those who participate and those who just come to check out the projects with lots of new Silhouette Ideas.
Silhouette gives away a shape every Tuesday on their site. Every month you can get 4-5 free shapes that way! I download them every week, but a lot of them sit there, completely unused. In fact, a lot of my shapes have never been used! Do you have the same problem? So, to challenge all Silhouette owners out there to get creative and use their free shapes, this party is specifically for the free shapes.

HOW WILL IT WORK?

On the first Thursday of every month I will put up a link party for projects made from the shapes of the previous month. That means you have a whole month to come up with an idea based on one of the shapes. You can do whatever you want with the shape.

THE RULES:

1. You may link up ONLY one item per free shape from the previous month. (Meaning 4-5 different projects may be linked depending on the month).
2. The free shape must be incorporated in the project but does not have to be the main shape, or only shape in the project.
3. All Silhouette shapes used must be listed within your post or on the SAME page as the photo linked.
3. The party will be open for three days to link up. It will close the Saturday after it opens.
4. You must link back to my site within your blog post or on the SAME page as the photo you link up. I will provide two button sizes and a banner with their links for you to choose from.
5. I will reserve the right to remove any links (be it inappropriate, marketing, or otherwise).
6. If you link up please check out the other projects linked up and comment on them.

When possible (remember, I am a MOM first and foremost) I will do reviews on my favorite projects. 

ADVERTISING

If you are interested in promoting your business (Silhouette related) by sponsoring rewards for the SFS Link Party or by having your business highlighted in the link party post, please feel free to contact me. I will have more information up about this in the days to come.

IF by any chance you have ideas or suggestions please let me know. I'm open for any and all suggestions.

The SFS Link Party Begins on February 2, 2012 so start downloading and using those free shapes! I look forward to seeing everyone's projects and being inspired to create in new ways.

Such a great idea! I download the shapes and rarely do anything with them. I need the motivation. I'm in!
