Monthly Maker Challenge

This fun design challenge happens every month to go along with our 2023 Monthly Mixes. ALL are welcome to participate but you do need to get your hands on the Monthly Mix to do so!!


The Mix Maker Challenge

What it is:
Each month, get your hands on the Monthly Mix and create a piece with it. It can be whatever you want! As long as you have created it and it's using that month's Monthly Mix you are good to go.


To enter:
Share your design! Post your photo in our Facebook Group or on your own social media account. Use the hashtag #monthlymaker to be entered.

Not on social media? We get it! You can also email your submission.


Winner, winner:
Each month we will select THREE winners who will be featured in our newsletter and on our social media...
and will also win a $25 beadshop.com gift card to boot!


  • Mixes will launch on the first of the month.
  • Entries must be submitted by the second-to-last day of the month
  • Winners will be posted on the last day of the month.
  • And then we begin anew with the first of the next month!


Some fine print:

-Entering a submission gives beadshop.com the right to use your first name/last initial and photo in our newsletter and/or social media.

-Entries must be Monthly-Mix forward. If there's just one color from the mix, it's not really using the mix!

-Entries do not need to be a BSDC project but it's encouraged! If it's not a beadshop design or your own personal creation please be sure to credit the designer if you're using a non-beadshop design.

-Social media entries must use the #monthlymaker hashtag to be entered.

-If you're posting to your own social media please also make sure your account is public so we can see your work! 

-Email submissions do not need the hashtag.
