Here is some great information for a few guest design calls that are out there. These are great opportunities to work with some great products and enjoy the online scrap community.
Paper Popsicles has a call out. This is for the June designer. You submit an application this month, then in May you work with your supplies, and your work shows up in the June publications for Paper Popsicles. Melissa is always VERY generous with her goodies and supplies. This is an easy fun call so go for it!
For the Guest Design Spot in June we want to see your card making creativity. For this call, you must create a set of 4(minimum) cards. Get creative, perhaps a set of thank you notes for a school teacher or new bride. Perhaps a set of baby shower invitations for a new mom in your life.
Spring is here, Summer is approaching! Lets see what wonderful cards you can make! This is a simple challenge during this busy time of year; but remember, cards will be judged on overall creativity and coordination - think 'gift set' not 4 unrelated cards. They should coordinate, but do not have to be identical.
Please include all cards in one photo, and additional closeup photos are fine. Also, please join our message board and be involved! You need to submit your entry by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on April 27th. Please do not submit files larger than 600 pixels. Sorry, digital entries are not eligible at this time.
The Winner will receive a package of goodies and her assignment in early May. Winner will have until May 25th to submit her assignment and a short bio, all of which will be in our June newsletter, added to our gallery, and added on our Design Team Page.
And also, there are some great contests and a GDT call going on over at Scrapwords. This is a great community. They have fun little blogs where you can write and post work. It's a great way to focus on the writing side of scrapping.
Here is what the owner, Leslie, who rocks, says:
"Okay, so I've been thinking...we need more layouts, more Blog entries, more everything on Scrapwords!! When people just drop by the site or happen to stumble upon us I want them to be overwhelmed with inspiration! So, with that being said we're going to have a contest!
Starting April 16th and running through May 11th for every layout or other creative project you post OR Blog entry you make you will get an entry into the contest. Let's say you post 2 layouts and write one Blog entry on Thursday...you'll get THREE entries into the contest!! The more you post the better your chance of winning!!!What can you win??? A HUGE gift pack of Fancy Pants and Prima products including one of everything new in the store from these two fabulous companies!! This gift is worth over $50.00!!!!! So what are you waiting for??? Start posting on Wednesday April 16th!!!! "
**just a note, the blog she is talking about is on her site, not your blogger or typepad blog.
