DT Call

***This post is pinned until the DT Call ends...please scroll down for newer posts***

Happy New Year!

I bet you're surprised to see a post from us mid-week, but we couldn't wait until Saturday...and the New Year seems as good a time as any to start 'anew'!

We lost a couple of DT members last year, so we're looking for some new DT members to join our Penny Black family.

You don't need to have any previous design team experience...but you should have an active blog, as you'll be required to publish your project for our monthly challenges on your personal blog, and join our friendly design team blog. 
We are predominantly cardmakers, but would welcome crafters that use their Penny Black products on other projects.
You will need to be able to comment on some of the entries to our challenges (currently 1 in every 10 entries for each design team member), help select guest designers, and choose your favourite entry from each challenge.

If you would be interested in being considered for our design team, please leave a link to your blog with the linky on this post...we would also love it if you'd play along with our current challenge!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Do we need to own Penny Black stamps?

Helen said...

Hi Crafty,
The only real 'rule' for our challenges is that the main focal point of your project should be a Penny Black product (stamp, die cut, stencil, sickeroo, paper), so you would need to use those on your DT samples. We are not associated with Penny Black Inc in any way, just an independent group of enthusiastic Penny Black fans, so we do not receive any products from them, and therefore do not supply products to DT members.
Hope that clears things up!?
