HIMCR #163 - Freestyle!

Happy Saturday!

What a week I've had! We, my son and I, left on Tuesday to drive to Provo, Utah to get him all moved into his dorm at BYU! It was fun to have the time just me and him! Then we had a day of orientation meetings and fun! We have some family about an hour away and that's where I am typing this from; however, by the time you see it I will be on plane heading home leaving one of my babies behind! :( I know he'll be fine. He's ready to be on his own and he is smart and will make good choices. It's me that will NOT be fine! LOL! I will miss the little booger! I keep thinking back to when he was a little boy and it makes me think how fast time flies, how I don't want to miss an oppoutunity with my younger kids, and him, to tell them I love them and how proud I am of them! I want to enjoy every hug, smile, laugh, and just sit and listen to their little small voices before it changes! Ok, sorry, I'm a little emotional and a lot reminiscent! On with the challenge!


This week it is:

HIMCR #163 - Freestyle!


Hooray! Anything goes! Just get crafty!

I can't believe it's time already again!



Hiding in My Craft Room is once again looking for a handful of creative artists to filll some open spots and to promote and give inspiration for our weekly challenges. Challenges are posted each Saturday at 5AM California time or 7AM CST.


Here's the monthly challenge schedule:

1st week: A Color Challenge

2nd week: Super Scraps Saturday - time to use up some of those SCRAPS!

3rd week: Try a Technique Week

4th week: Mix it Up! The challenge this week will be different month to month! And can be anything!

5th week: Freestyle! This week you can enter with ANY creation!!



Here's how to apply:


Send an email to hidinginmycraftroom@gmail.com with the following information...


Name:

Email Address:

Location:

Blog and/or Online Gallery Link:


Please let me know a little bit about you, such as:


Are you currently on any other design teams? If so, which ones?

How long have you been paper crafting?

What is your favorite stamping company/companAre you comfortable with "out of the box" challenges? There might be times when sponsors have things that are not within your comfort zone.


Attach at least 3 of your creations showing your talent and diversity, you can include cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, 3d items, any paper creation!


Anything else you think I would like to know or you want to share! :)



Deadline for submissions is September 12th! I will be emailing the new DT by midnight September 15th! Remember, if you don't make it this time I will be putting up another call in 6 months! I get a lot of submissions and wish I could have you all on my team!



Design Team Member REQUIREMENTS


As a Hiding in My Craft Room design team member, you must submit one project per week using the specified challenge for that week. You will receive one month's worth of challenges at a time, at least two weeks before the challenge is posted. We have a HIMCR Design Team Private Blog! Your submission for the week's challenge needs to be uploaded to our DT blog by 7AM on Friday of each week so that I'll have time to get the challenge post ready for Saturday morning at 5AM California time!


You must keep up with your blog, posting at least once a week and have the current week's Hiding in My Craft Room challenge posted each Saturday linking it back to the challenge post. It is also asked that you leave comments on some of the entries submitted by participants of the HIMCR challenges.



You must also display the Hiding in My Craft Room button on your blog. We also have a DT button if you prefer!



Sometimes we will have sponsors that sell digital products. You will usually be given images to work with! I try to let the team help me choose which images we get but sometimes they might be different from your crafting 'style'. You must be willing to work with sponsors' products. This promotes them and gives us free stuff to play and learn with! It is also expected that the HIMCR sponsor be mentioned and linked back to them within your post especially when using their products. :)


Also, I just want to let you know that I will most likely have the entire year full of sponsors and giveaways each week! Fun! FUN! FUN!



HIMCR Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of October 2014 - March 2015.



Periodically we have celebrations and on those occasions we will have multiple challenges and giveaways on that Saturday! This is so much fun and yes, CRAZY! But FUN! You will not be required to make something for each of the challenges but of course at least one! However, usually team members want to do more!


Also, we will have at least one blog hop to showcase the new team!

We have a lot of fun! We have a HIMCR Facebook group where I post challenges, sponsors information, where we get to know each other and can ask questions or just share! We truly become a team and more importantly friends!



If you have any questions please feel free to send them to me using the 'Contact Me' button at the top of the page. Be sure and put in the subject line, DT question. I try to check email and respond daily but you might get a quicker response sending me a PM through the HIMCR Facebook fan page. The link is on the sidebar.




I look forward to seeing your submissions!

I love Ribbon but I hate paperwork!

I have been meaning to post this every day this week but something has always come up and really I need to be probably doing something else like my 8 year old needs a haircut, we have a few things we couldn't find on the school supply lists that we should get tonight plus some new things we didn't know about yet, I have a son who is going to need help getting his stuff together before he leaves or else I'm going to be getting the stuff he leaves behind together by myself! It's almost time to cook dinner! Today, I didn't do my one load of laundry I try to do everyday. Thank goodness the kids don't have homework yet but of course I'm sure there's some more paperwork for me to fill out! Is it just me or do you find it annoying that we have soooo much back to school paper work to fill out EVERY SINGLE YEAR! Why in the world can't it be like the doctor's office where we only have to fill out new forms if any of the information has changed! Birthday - same! Address - same! Emergency contacts - same! Names - hello, the same! Parents names, numbers, etc - same, same, same! Okay, maybe it's the fact that I hate paperwork and I find it repetitive and busy work which is something else I don't like or have time for! None of this has ANYTHING to do with the card I'm posting I'm just venting! :) Oh, except all this busy work, paperwork, and shopping makes me a little mad (crazy mad!). heehee!


The challenge this week is:
 
HIMCR #161 - Use Ribbon!

I made a card a few weeks ago and had some scrap ribbon in a jar on my desk and decided to use some of it and I like the way it came out so much that I decided to make Using Ribbon a challenge!


The sponsor for this challenge is My Besties!
The giveaway is 4 preselected adorable My Besties digital images!

One of which is the image I used below! Maddie Hatter!


There's TONS of time some time to get entered into this week's challenge! You can see all the details and get entered HERE!
 
 

Here's what I came up with using ribbon:
