Designers should have their challenges posted first thing July 17-18
Thanks so much and I couldn’t be more EXCITED!
See some guidelines below:
The crop dates are July 17th through the 22nd 2012. Designers will be posting their challenges on their individual blogs on Tuesday, July17th. We have designers from all over the world so please be patient as the time zones will vary but they will do their best to have them up first thing Tuesday Morning.
Challenges will be posted on Day 1 and Day 2 and you will have through Sunday Night, July 22nd at midnight EST to get them posted. Schedule posted Monday. All questions should be directed to the Core blog to THIS post or on their Facebook Hard Core Crop page here.
Each Designer will post their challenge on their blog with inlinkz. You will need to link your project to that post, again, by midnight EST July 22nd, 2012. This way you can post your projects on your blog, Flicker, Pinterest, Photobucket or whatever photo sharing site you use and then just link them. We will have a master challenge list on the Core Blog for you so that you can keep track of all the challenges easily. Challenges will be for layouts and cards so everyone will be able to find some challenges they will enjoy.
All you need is Core’dinations Cardstock. You must use Core on your creations to be eligible. Each designer will highlight a certain line of Core but you can use any kind you wish for that challenge as long as it is Core’dinations.
They will also be posting tidbits and fun stuff on our Facebook Event page HERE so stay close because they will have some fun random challenges going on there throughout the week, too!
SO…how do you win some Core???
Designers will pick an entry from their blog to win the Core’dinations Cardstock designated that day. Our team is looking for creative uses for Core (and other things like following rules, etc). Get creative and show off you use that Core’dinations Cardstock!
On (or around)July 27th, 2012, a master list of winners will be posted on the Core blog so please make sure you check back then to see if you won! (Designers will be posting on their individual blogs as well). The more challenges you participate in, the better you chances of winning! You may do each challenge as many times as you wish but you may not combine challenges. We also ask since our Designers and Team have put a lot of time in to this crop that these are newly created projects just for this event.
So get those photos printed…stock up on adhesive…we are ready!
Remember you have until July 22nd at midnight EST to get things linked to the Designer blog.
Come back here Wednesday morning to get your sketch!

Sharing a few Blog Makeovers

Sorry I'm not much into sharing any stories right now ... I'm sure i'll start shortly! Just feeling under the weather lately .. in the mean time i'm trying to create everyday ;-) here are a few makeovers I just recently finished --

this first one is libby - celebrating her digi anniversary! 4 years actually .. and she wanted a new blog makeover in honor of the celebration. For me, this banner totally SCREAMS LIBBY LOU!
take a peek here --

this next one if for Jenny Evans, i love the colors she selected, so bright and fun! that blue to screams to me and with a little pop of red -- it's perfect for her
you can see it here ..

the purple pumpkin will be undergoing a little makeover in the near future, but in the mean time while we wait for her new logo to be created we temporarily redid the blog and banner ...
hopefully we'll have a finished logo soon and a complete redo of the store blog and facebook ;-)

and my last one for this post is Missy's little Nugget Creations! Love the kit she selected for her banner. This just reminds me of a garden gathering. I love the sun, clouds and cute little frogs too. you can check it out here ...

I have a few on a waitlist right now and I thank everyone for their patience while i try and finish up ;-)

have a great week!
