Welcome and DT Call!

A huge welcome to the brand spankin' new Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! I'm so excited that you're here and hope you're ready to play with us! I promise lots of fun and have some really exciting challenges in store! I'd appreciate it if you'd grab our badge with a link back here to help spread the word! :)

I've had some inquiries as to whether this new challenge blog is geared only toward the creation of scrapbook layouts. The answer is no. I've updated this post to make sure everyone knows that this new challenge blog is geared toward ALL types of papercrafting - the creation of cards, scrapbook layouts, ATCs, altered items (boxes, tins, etc.) and 3-D projects! ;)

Our challenges will begin at 9:00 AM EST on the first and third Monday of each month. They'll run for two weeks and end at 8:00 PM EST on Sunday. (Update: Beginning with Challenge #2, our challenges will begin at 6:00 AM EST and end at 6:00 PM EST.) Winner and Top 3 for each challenge will be chosen by our Design Team and announced one week after the challenge ends. Our first challenge is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 4th! It'll be here before we know it! ;)

I've lined up several wonderful sponsors with some pretty awesome prizes, but I still need several more. To any potential sponsors out there... please leave a comment if you'd like to sponsor a challenge! I would absolutely love to hear from you! ;)

Now, on to the DT call... I need some talented design team members that love to scrap! Scrapping includes cardmaking, scrapbook layouts, ATCs, altered items (boxes, tins, etc.) and 3-D projects. I'd love to have a team with diverse papercrafting experience! There are only a few requirements:

  • Create two tangible DT inspiration projects a month (no digital creations).
  • Take good photographs of your projects.
  • Submit projects at least three days prior to the beginning of each challenge.
  • Leave comments on participant blogs.

If this sounds like fun to you, then please leave your name and link to your blog with Mr. Linky below!

This DT call will close on Monday, February 18th. Thanks so much! :)


UPDATE: The Mr. Linky tool has been removed from this post, as the design team has been selected! Stay tuned for the formal introduction of the talented Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT! :)
