Stamp Addicts

Thursday, 14 June 2012

Hi everyone,

I am very excited as I have been working on this challenge blog most of the day just trying to figure out the bits and bobs I really wanted to have ready.

Well, first things first! I have decided that I love entering challenges and was interested in hosting a challenge blog myself. I am a full time carer and there are days where craft is the only thing that keeps me sane :)

 I am doing a callout for my DT. I have already got one awesome lady who has expressed her interest and I would love to have her. I would love to hear from anyone else who may be interested. So you have a bit of an idea of where I am going with the challenge, I will list below the different categories that I would like to have. These would be rotated on a weekly/fortnightly basis - whichever would suit the team.

1. Alcohol Markers - "Make your Mark Challenge"
2. Bingo/Tic Tac Toe - "Bingo Addict Challenge"
3. Theme Challenge
4. Colour - "Addicted to {Blue} Challenge"
5. Clean and Simple (CAS)
6. Sketch Challenge (undecided on this one).

I have secured a inlinz account for ease of linking to the challenge which will include thumbnails.

I really hope to hear from some aspiring designers! This will be really fun!

I have designed some badges for the blog. I was really stuck for a cool name for the winner of each challenge. Perhaps someone has an idea for this?

  9. This looks like it's going to be a great challenge blog! All my favourite types of challenge in one place!
    I'd love to be considered for your DT but don't know if I'm eligible... Can I ask if you are intending to get sponsors who require you to use their images? The reason I ask is that I am a SU demo which obviously means I wouldn't be able to promote other companies. Would love to hear from you one way or the other - and good luck with your challenge venture. I think this is going to be a 'must' on my challenge list!

  10. Hi, this looks as though it's going to be great fun and I wish you every success. Know a couple of your DT and am thrilled they are working with you so I hope to play along with some of your challenges. The website Mynette mentions is FelinePlayfulBlogspot and you can ask them to advertise your challenges. You would have to email them and provide them with details of your future challenges......it's a great blog to get your challenge known....Best of luck petal! Suzanne x

  11. Hi Kylie

    This looks great and congratulations on your new blog. Being a full time carer can't make this easy but I certainly empathise with your comment that it's what keeps you sane. Pop over to my blog and have a look - if you like what you see then I'd be delighted to join your new challenge blog.

    All good wishes. Karen x
