I'm keeping this post on top!

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 with the following information...


Email Address:


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 14th! I will be emailing the new DT by midnight September 16th! 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!
