Good morning G45ers!
We have a new obsession here at Graphic 45. Snapguide! We have been sharing Snapguide tutorials a lot the past couple of weeks because we love this site so much and have lost so much time to getting great ideas and saving guides to try. Today, we're going to give you a fun introduction to Snapguide and then remind you we are sponsoring a great Upcycling Contest with them. We will share some of our Design Team entries and then some of our favorite other Upcycling guides. It's going to be a great day, and we totally understand in advance if some of today is lost to the fun of Snapguide. ;)
You may be wondering "What is Snapguide?" Well on their FAQ page, they have a great answer: "Snapguide, is a free iOS app and web service for those that want to create and share step-by-step 'how to guides'. We host easy to understand instructions for a wide array of topics including cooking, gardening, crafts, repairs, do-it-yourself projects, fashion tips, entertaining and more. Everyone is welcome to create their own guides, so that they can share their passions and expertise with the Snapguide community."
Snapguide is a perfect fit for the papercrafter. We love tutorials here at Graphic 45, and Snapguides are so extremely user-friendly and fun. When Snapguide contacted us to sponsor a contest with them, we jumped at the chance!
You read that image right! $900 in prizes is the grand prize. Wow! Not sure how to enter a contest through Snapguide? They have a great guide to take you through the steps.
But first, you may be curious, how do I make a guide on Snapguide? They have a great guide for that too!
Now, let's share some of the fun guides we love from our Design Team. So many great ideas, so many fun tutorials!
Miranda makes the best Easter decor using old plant pots. Love this idea!
Do you notice in the Snapguides, there's always a tab with the Supply List? We love that handy feature!
Next, we have Annette Green's By the Sea picnic caddy made with By the Sea! Adore this.
What about upcycling those materials we always having lying around: envelopes! Susan makes this upcycled envelope shine. And anyone can try this one.
Lastly from our Design Team, we have Maria's upcycled salt and pepper shaker to use as storage in the craft room. Beautiful organization is one of our favorite things, so we are inspired by this idea.
We are loving the entries for this contest! This guide by Denise Corcoran using cereal boxes and old CD cases is such a fun project to use supplies we seem to always have around.
Also, who loves beautiful, DIY furniture? We love it! Enjoy this coffee table upcycling entry by Andree of HomeShows using an old door.
Are you hooked on Snapguide like us? Well, take part today and win big! Take another look at the Contest Details and make a guide today! What do you have lying around that needs some upcycling?
