The challenge this week, we are doing every 4th week of the month is:
Hiding in My Craft Room is once again looking for a handful of creative artists to promote and give inspiration for our weekly challenges and our HIMCR sponsors.
Challenges are posted each Saturday at 7AM Central Standard Time.
Here's the 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: Any Holiday! Time to work on a current Holiday or catch up on a past holiday you need to scrapbook or work on a future Holiday! I'm always needing more Christmas cards!
5th week: Freestyle! This week you can enter with ANY creation!! However, we still might have a sponsor to represent and use their products but you won't have any other restraints.
Here's how to apply:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information...
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/companies?
Are you comfortable with "out of the box" challenges? There might be times when sponsors have things that are not necessarily 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 April 8th! I will be emailing the new DT by midnight April 18th!
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 7AM Central Standard 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!
Sometimes we will have sponsors that sell digital products. You might be given images or kits to work with! These might be items that are 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 within your post especially when using their products. :) Also, I just want to let you know that I already have the entire year full of sponsors and giveaways each week! Fun! FUN! FUN!
Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of May 2015 - October 2015.
We will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day on May 2nd with multiple challenges and giveaway! This is so much fun and yes, CRAZY! But FUN! There will be a minimum of 5 challenges, PHEW! You will not be required to make something for each of them but of course at least one! But I think you will want to do more! We always have a lot of fun!!!
Also, HIMCR's blogiversary is August 11th so on the Saturday before August 15th we will be doing pretty much the same thing, just different challenges and HIMCR will sponsor all the challenges this time! Sounds like fun, huh?
We do have a lot of fun! We have a HIMCR Facebook group where we get to know each other and can ask questions or just share! We truly become a team and more importantly friends!
Be sure and have your submission turned in on time because the new team needs to be notified via email by April 18th so they will have time to get the challenges and be ready to begin on May 2nd, 2015! What a week to start! And please only apply if you are willing to participate, make new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some crafting! :)
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. However, you might get a quicker response through the HIMCR Facebook fan page. The link is on the sidebar.
Thank you so much for visiting today!
I look forward to seeing your submissions!
