**ANNOUNCEMENT ... ANNOUNCEMENT ... ANNOUNCEMENT**
Hi everyone! The Love To Scrap Challenge Blog has a new sister blog that will make her debut on August 1st! Please join me in welcoming the Love To Craft Challenge Blog to blogland! Woo-hoo! I know most crafters are always on the look-out for new challenges to enter and I wanted to create one with an atmosphere where we can all inspire and be inspired... one that gives everyone an opportunity to show off what you're working on, no matter what it is!
As our marquee says, we welcome any and all kinds of handmade creations - from cards, tags, ATCs and scrapbook layouts - to 3-D projects, mixed media canvases and altered projects - and even knitting, crocheting, quilting and jewelry-making! Whatever you're working on, we want to see it! :)
Our challenges will go live at 6:00 AM EST on the 1st day of every month and run until 6:00 PM EST on the last day of the month. Winners and Top Picks will be chosen by our design team and announced on the 15th of the month following the close of each challenge.
You may enter our challenges up to five times (as long as each project is different) and you may combine our challenges with as many other challenges as you'd like! The more the merrier! :)
Love to Craft Challenge Blog is a work in progress right now but please check it out and be sure to follow us so you don't miss out on anything! And we'd love it if you'd help spread the crafty love by sharing our badge on your blog! :D

Now, here comes the fun part... this is a DT Call!
We need some talented crafters for our new design team!
Some of the benefits of joining our brand new team...
- All challenges are Anything Goes, so create whatever you want for each challenge and work ahead if you want - no stressful deadlines!
- If you are a paper crafter, use your own rubber/clear stamps or digital images - dust off some of those you haven't used in ages or use some new ones!
- You aren't limited to just paper crafts - delve into some 3-D, mixed media or altered work! Or beading, quilting, knitting or crocheting if you want!
- Your blog URL will be placed on our Design Team page and on our right sidebar!
- Your DT inspiration projects will be showcased on our blog for an entire month... a great advertisement for your awesome artwork!
- An organized team function - I do all the work so you can concentrate on creating your amazing projects! ;)
And here's what we need from you:
- One project per month.
- Good photos of your projects uploaded at least 5 days prior to the first the day of the month when new challenge goes live.
- An active blog where you showcase your DT inspiration projects and link to our challenges.
- Comment on challenge entries and leave love for your fellow teammates.
- Vote on Winners & Top Picks after each challenge.
- Positive team spirit and willingness to promote our challenges.
To apply, all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a link to your blog!
Prior design team experience is not required! ;)
This DT Call will close at 6:00 PM on Saturday, July 9th.
