Treasury Challenge: Star Deck

Bon Voyage!

bon voyage! ~ fresh horizons, new adventures

The votes are in, and the winner of the “New Adventure” treasury challenge is Bon Voyage! Congratulations to the curator, soapstar, and thank you very much to all of our participants and voters!

It‘s time for round two in the Oh Canada Team Treasury challenge! This fun activity is designed to bring new exposure to Etsy sellers, our team and individual shops, as well as bring us all together in the spirit of beautiful treasuries!

The contest is open to anyone, and we invite all Etsy members to participate, even if you’re not an Oh Canada Team member. Buyers are also welcome to play!

The winner will receive the opportunity to select the theme for our next challenge. It could be an idea, a color, or even an item from their shop, or a favorite shop, to be featured in our next Treasury Challenge.

The Rules

1. Make a beautiful treasury in Treasury East.

2. Your treasury must incorporate the challenge’s theme, and include at least 8 Oh Canada Team members. Check out our team roster for members, or search for the tag OhCanadaTeam when choosing your featured listings.

3. You must include the words “OCT Challenge” somewhere in your treasury’s title.

4. You must tag your treasury with “ohcanadateam” and “OCT challenge”

5. In your treasury’s description, let viewers know that it is an entry in an Oh Canada Team challenge, invite them to join, and provide a link to our main blog, or this post.

6. If any item in your treasury sells or is removed, please replace it with another item from the same shop. Screenshots of each entry will be available in our Flickr challenge album for your reference before judging begins.

7. Please do not use your own shop(s) in your entry, including alternate shops.

The Theme

Our previous challenge winner, soapstar, has selected Star Deck all natural anise and blackberry soap to be the focus of this challenge. You can create using any theme that you desire, but you must include this listing in your treasury: Star Deck Soap.

How to Enter

To enter your treasury, post a link to it in the comments section of this thread.

The deadline for the “Star Deck” challenge is Tuesday, August 24th. Our judges will select 6 finalists, and voting will begin on Thursday, August 26th.

Voting for this challenge will close the following Tuesday, and the winner will be announced along with our new challenge theme on Thursday, September 2nd.

Everyone is welcome to play - including Etsy shoppers and non-team members. If you’ve never made a treasury on Etsy before, you can get some handy tips in this tutorial: How to Make Etsy Treasuries.

Challenge Judges

Not ready to make a treasury yet? We will also be looking for guest judges to help narrow down the finalists. If you would like to participate, let us know in the comments section of this post, along with a link to your shop.

The first three volunteers will be contacted by our Treasury Challenge admins with more details. All judges will receive a special mention and shop backlink during the voting stage of the challenge.

Please feel free to contact our team admins if you have any questions.

Good luck!

Vicky's yummy soap is tempting as a treasury theme, but I'm still unpacking from my trip, so I'd like to volunteer to be a judge instead.
