Falling Leaves and Halloween

Hello and welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.

We have a choice of theme for the next challenge, the subject of the challenge is taken from the time of year and you can choose between either 'Autumn' or 'Halloween'. Here in the UK it can be a beautiful time of year with the trees changing to the most amazing colours and the leaves falling can inspire some fabulous projects.

At this time of year many of us also look forward to dressing up with our children for Halloween. Treat boxes and cards have increasingly become part of this tradition and we should love to see your projects.

We should like to give you the opportunity to join in the fun at Crafty Boots so we are offering guest design team spots to the winner and both runners up of this challenge.

Our Design Team has not been idle and here are their autumnal projects:

Crafty Boots is looking to extend its design team

The Crafty Boots Challenge Blog has a small friendly team of designers which we are looking to expand by two or three new members.

Crafty Boots Challenge Blog has been going for just over three years, since the beginning there have been around 80 challenges.  New challenges are announced on alternate Monday's at 10 am UK time.

Requirements
  • Designers are required to create one project for each main challenge and occasionally for the mid challenge reminder; promote the challenges via their personal blog; comment on challenge participants and vote for their top three.  Challenges are fortnightly but we understand that life gets in the way sometimes and you may miss the occasional one.
  • You will need to have good photographic skills and provide clear, bright photographs of your work for the challenge blog.
  • You must have a blog or, if you do not have a blog, be willing to set one up.
    Other information
    • There is no set term appointment, you are free to leave at any time, or stay on for as long as you wish.
    • Previous design team experience is NOT required.
    • This call is open to ALL types of crafters - cardmaking, scrapbooking, mixed media, etc and there is no restrictions on what materials you can use.
    • We are intending to add 2 or 3 designers to our existing team (although there may be some flexibility in this if there is a very high standard of applicants).
    • The call will be open until midnight (UK time) on Sunday 26 October 2014.

    Postcards

    Hello and welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges. The theme of the challenge for the next two weeks is 'Postcards'.

    Sitting writing postcards to friends and family at home whilst you are on holiday seems to be a thing of the past. With laptops and mobile phones to keep in touch, and the cost of postage these days, they have gone out of fashion. However, the very lovely Lisette wants us to celebrate these little pieces of card by using them in our projects.

    Here is what our design team have come up with:

    Card by Lisette


    Card by Sandra


    This challenge will remain open until 12 Noon on Sunday, 31 August. There are very few rules, other then to have fun, but if you would like to check out the rules you will find them here.

    We are all looking forward to seeing your projects, good luck.
