Design Team Call

Hello everyone ;o)  Well I am finally getting around to the design team call!!  So here we go;
I am looking for 4, or possibly 5, people to be on a design team for challenges hosted on this blog.  The challenges will initially be monthly and each months winner will receive either a fixed prize or a voucher to spend in the Ladybug Crafts online store .  Winners will be picked by random number generator and ther will be a top three chosen by myself and the design team members. 

 To begin with members of the design team will receive some stamped images to use in their design team projects and as time goes on , if the challenges take off (which I am really hoping they will ;o)) they may also receive some bits and pieces from me such as rubber stamps, ribbon or other embellishments etc.  Design team members will also receive 10% off purchases made from the online shop ;o)

The challenges will be open to all types of craft and I would like the design team members to advertise the challenges on their blog, so one stipulation is that people interested in becoming part of the design team must have their own blog and post regularly.  Each challenge will start on the 1st of each month , so DT members will post their projects and details of the challenge on this date - they must ensure that pictures of their projects are sent to me at least three days before each new challenge is due to begin.  Design team members will have a blinkie that they can display on their blogs (if I can ever work out how to get the sorted out LOL) 

I think that is about all for now, fine details will be sorted before the challenges start which will hopefully be the 1st of August.  I am running the DT call for 2 months to give ample time for people to respond.  If you just add your details through Mr Linky at the bottom of this post I will get round to look at all of your fab art works ;o)  Winners will be notified by the 20th July.

New things

Hello!!!  Well May is here along with some really foul wintery weather - so great crafting weather ;o)  I have just added the wonderful Dylusions spray ink range to the website -

They are so bright and just amazing for journalling, tag art and lots of other crafty projects.

Also added are some of the Dylusions 5 x 8 stencils

This one is the dotted flowers one and they are great for using with the sprays, distress inks, paint or just doodling through them with a pen ;o)
There are also a few sets of Dyan Reaveleys rubber stamps including this one;

This is the funky Pondering Petunia - I just love the quirky images.  I will be hopefully expanding the range very soon.

The Distress Markers have also arrived;

There are 37 markers in the range - 36 distress colours plus picket fence.  The full set comes in a great storage cannister and the price is great at £92.50.  For those who want to buy the pens individually they will be available shortly at £2.89 each.

Finally I have also added some lovely metal charms - keys and watch faces and also the great clear micro beads from Creative Expressions;

These beads are great for texture on card and scrapbook projects and also available are the super sticky double sided adhesive sheets.  This 300g pot will last for ages and is a great buy at £8.99.

Finally I am hoping to post over the next few days to set up a design team for the blog challenge - I am desperately trying to work out blinkies and things but think I'm going to have to seek out someone who is better at the computer thing than  I am !!  I am struggling to get to grips with Blogger's new interface so anything else just stumps me LOL.
Anyway I will be back shortly
