Jo's Scrap Shack DT Call~





Hello friends! 
Well the time has come once again! I am looking to add at least 4 new designers to the awesome team that I am proud to work with every week. Most of the designers on my team have been with me for 2 & 3 years now and we have formed a little family. There is nothing as precious as the friendships we form in this industry.

 Have you been wanting to be on a design team but never try out because you think that your work is not "good" enough? I know that many of you are sitting there answering this question with a "yes, thats me"! I am looking for designers who are not afraid to take a leap and will just dive right on in, feet first! No need to be worried or judgmental on your work. Let me be the judge of that! If you want to be on my design team, take the leap and let me see what you have! Now keep in mind, I am simple and very laid back. I welcome ALL levels of crafters to try out and I want you to know that ALL levels of crafters have the same advantage of being chosen. I am not going to single out "friends" or people that are "popular" for my design team. I play fair and here is what I am looking for in you first.....

  1. You must have a huge passion for crafting! :)
  2. You have to be outgoing, down to earth, sociable, creative, enthusiastic and human! :)
  3.  You should not be afraid to ask questions :)
  4. Lastly, you should always look to have fun :)

If you have all four of those things...
 then here is what I want you to do. 
TRY OUT!! Yes GUYS are welcome!!

Design Team Responsibilities:

1. You will need to have an active blog 


2. You will need to create 2 projects per month. During special occasions and blog hops, you may be required to do an extra project or two for that month. 



3. You will need to advertise on social media for all upcoming challenges, blog hops and guest design spotlights when asked.
 ( Social Media platform preferred is Facebook)


4. You will be required to join our private DT Yahoo Group. If you do not have a Yahoo ID, you will be required to create one.

5. The term will be for 6 months and will run from October 21, 2016 to April 14, 2017. At the end of the 6 month term, you will have the opportunity to stay on should you choose to. If you do plan 
to leave after your six months, I need a heads up at least one month prior to your term's end. 

What you will receive in return:
1. You will receive an array of digital stamps and cut files from many different companies in the industry.

2. You will receive more exposure on your blog, which will lead to more followers and friends 

3. You will receive an organized Yahoo Group to find all challenge information, links, sponsor information & friendly chat with your DT sisters/brothers.

4. You will receive the opportunity to be entered into all giveaways

5. You will build up an amazing assortment of digital stamps from some of your favorite companies, that you can use over and over again in your own projects

6. You will have opportunities to be in the designer spotlight

7. Lastly, you will build beautiful friendships with a great group of designers that will be working alongside you

Challenge #57 'County Fair' with Dies R Us!








Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to a new challenge at Dies R US and I sure hope that your week has been good. Today's challenge takes us down to the county fair! So we want to see your projects showcasing anything you would see or do at the county fair or carnival! So here is what I created for this challenge.

 

My card is a standard A2 size on some white cardstock. The patterned paper panel with the coaster is from SEI paper company and the rest of the cardstock is from Stampin' Up. I used several dies today for this card.  I used the Frantic Stamper- Barnyard Chicken & Chick dies for the large and small chickens, the Precious Marieke- Milk Churn & Barrel for the barrel that the owl is standing on.... the Yvonne Creations- Christmas Owls for the cute little owl ... and last but not least, Amy Design- Road Signs for the wooden sign post. Each of these dies can all be found in the Dies R Us store HERE. I am not good with creating scene cards, still need some practice in that area but I am pleased with how this turned out. Normally I would never write on my cards but in this case, I knew I didn't have any stamps small enough that would be able to spell what I wanted the signs to say. I just decided to go ahead and write what I wanted as this card is going to a family member with a couple summer photos. The grass is a border die from MFT and I pushed some of the grass strands forward to give it a realistic look. The ice cream cone, cotton candy and balloon was cut out of the same pattern paper that I used for the background. The large chicken and the owl on the barrel are all popped up on some foam tape. To finish this card off, I used a bit of clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and gave some sparkle to the balloon, ice cream and cotton candy and added a few dots in some areas for interest. 
   

Well that is all I have for you today my friends. I appreciate you for taking time out of your day to visit me and see what I am up to. Please don't forget to stop by the Dies R US challenge blog to see what the rest of my design team sisters have created for you today. And make sure to link up your own project too! And for more inspiration, check out the Dies R US Inspiration blog . You will find yourself browsing for awhile. There are so many gorgeous projects that will surely inspire you and get your creative mojo flowing. Thanks again for stopping by!

Until next time, Enjoy life's blessings~
