Remember when I told you about my exciting new project, Craft Wars? It feels like just yesterday, but time has flown by because the show premieres tomorrow night, June 26th at 10pm EST/ 9 PM C on TLC and will air every Tuesday night after that!

As a lifelong craftista, I am beyond proud to be part of such an amazing project that not only highlights my passion but also inspires me each and every episode! Plus, who doesn’t love a little crafty competition? I’m so excited for all of you to see the show and can’t wait to hear what you think.

Here’s how Craft Wars works: each episode will feature three talented DIYers who face-off in a Pop Craft challenge that marries an everyday craft with not-so-everyday items. Next, only the two craftiest will move on to the Master Craft challenge! This is where they’ll make something extraordinary while the clock is ticking. The challenges are tough and there are tricks along the way, so the contestants really have to show us what they’re made of.

The contestants are judged by a fabulous cast of talented DIY experts: Erica Domesek, author of PS I Made This, Stephen Brown, author and founder of the multi-million dollar company Glitterville Studios, and Jo Pearson, author and creative expert for Michaels.

Throughout the competition the crafters can use anything from our amazing Michaels Craft Closet provided by our sponsor (and my happy place) Michaels, the arts and craft store.

The crafter who wins it all walks away with $10,000! That’s every episode!

In tomorrow night’s episode, you’ll watch contestants create fashion-forward duffel bags from sporting equipment and build amazing playhouses out of school supplies. Plus, my kids Liam and Stella guest star!! Take a peek here:

Are you GLUED yet?

And for you, my friends, I have one more crafty trick up my sleeve: to get you in the crafting spirit, I’ll be running a Craftista Hunt Contest over the next four weeks! Here’s how it will work: Starting tomorrow, every Tuesday I will post 10 questions about the upcoming episode. Make sure to watch the Craft Wars episode that night, and pay extra close attention… and then give me your answers by Wednesday – the winner (and there will be a different winner each week!) will receive a {styled} by Tori Spelling DIY Jewelry set and a personalized copy of my party planning DIY book celebraTORI.

So be sure to set your DVRs for tomorrow night at 10/9c on TLC and check back tomorrow for the contest questions!
