UBP Design Contest

by Janice

You Decide!

Below are the finalists for our Ultimate Blog Party Design Contest.

Tell us which banner design you’d like to see at the party.

Click here to vote!
Voting is open until Monday Feb 4th at Midnight Eastern time.

Please note that we didn’t specify a size requirement (which in hindsight we should have done so that all entries were the same size).

The winning design will be used in a banner and a button. If the design entry only includes either a banner or a button, we will request that the designer also send us a matching version in the other size.

We may also ask the winning designer to modify their banner/button size. (If the winner is unable to make the size changes, we’ll contact the runner-up.)

Once your votes are counted, we will contact the winner to confirm and then announce the winning design here on 5 Minutes for Mom.

Click here to vote!
Voting is open until Monday Feb 4th at Midnight Eastern time.

Entry #1 — Darlene from Christian Women Online


Entry #2 — Karla from Fruition Designs


Entry #3 — Shera from A Frog In My Soup



Entry #4 — Amanda from A Stay At Home Mom’s Point of View



Entry #5 — Cocoa from Chocolate on My Cranium

Entry #7 — Lisa from The Scrap Princess



Entry #8 — Proverbs 31 from Bringing Good Home

Voting is open until Monday Feb 4th at Midnight Eastern time. (In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by the 5 Minutes for Mom team.)

I think Karla’s design (2) is my favorite! They are all cute, but that one is adorable!


8 Crafty Carolinagirl January 28, 2008 at 12:29 pm

Wow, they are all so great and different. I like #2, Karla’s design the best.


9 Kathleen January 28, 2008 at 12:39 pm

Wow those are all great, making it very hard to decide! I think I’ll have to close my eyes and point!


10 Proverbs31 January 28, 2008 at 1:04 pm

Jennifer :-)


13 Krista January 28, 2008 at 2:32 pm

Um, it’s telling me that the survey is closed… I’d like to vote for #2. Thanks!


14 Trish January 28, 2008 at 2:51 pm

Amanda’s entry (#4) is not linked to the correct site. I know that doesn’t effect the voting but since I was checking who was a designer and who wasn’t I noticed it.


15 CynthiA January 28, 2008 at 2:53 pm

I like #7 lisa’s


16 Nell - Mama of 2 Boys January 28, 2008 at 3:08 pm

I like number one. Gonna go vote.


17 Christine January 28, 2008 at 3:46 pm

They are all so great, but I LOVE #1!


18 Angie January 28, 2008 at 4:11 pm

Oh my goodness, so many great designs. It was so hard to choose.


19 jen January 28, 2008 at 5:13 pm

Entry #5 — Cocoa from Chocolate on My Cranium


20 Alexis January 28, 2008 at 5:17 pm

These are all so awesome! I can’t wait to see if the one I voted for wins.


21 Stephanie January 28, 2008 at 5:36 pm

So many talented designers! I voted for #1 Darlene, but #11 WAH Mommy was a close second.


22 dana January 28, 2008 at 5:55 pm

I love ALL of them, but it’s a vote, so I’m going to choose Karla from Fruition Designs (#2) :)


23 Ali D January 28, 2008 at 6:34 pm

I voted for #11. I liked #2′s design but didn’t like the fact that only two ethnicities and one body type were represented. I like it better when it’s just the outline of the people.


24 Tammy and Parker January 28, 2008 at 7:53 pm

#3 from A Frog In My Soup is our choice! So cute!


25 Christi January 28, 2008 at 8:27 pm

Wow that was a hard choice! They all looked awesome! Great job, ladies! Good luck to you all!


26 Qtpies7~ January 28, 2008 at 8:51 pm

Oh, so hard to choose!!! I won’t say who I voted for, but it was not easy!


27 Jolanthe January 28, 2008 at 10:53 pm

I’m voting for #2 – Karla’s. Great job, Karla!!



28 Kailani January 29, 2008 at 1:49 am

I like #5 & #6. I’m a polka dot loving girl.


29 Vic January 29, 2008 at 3:10 am



30 Janice January 29, 2008 at 3:31 am

Trish – thanks so much for telling us about the incorrect link on Amanda’s. So sorry about that Amanda – it is fixed now.


31 Naomi January 29, 2008 at 9:18 am

What great designs! I’m glad I didn’t submit one, it would have PALED in comparison! Off to vote now . . .


32 Jessie January 29, 2008 at 8:37 pm

I hate to fess up and admit it, but I have no idea what a blog party is. After viewing these banners I am so THERE! (I guess I better find out more about it…*teehee)

GREAT banners!!

37 Maddy February 17, 2009 at 1:00 am

Aha! I finally get it. I won’t be participating as that’s well out of my league, but certainly fun to observe from the fringe.
