  • Hello Crafters!  Welcome to Challenge #41 - Anything Goes

  • Good morning/evening everybody we are here with a new challenge. First, I would like to make an announcement.  Sadly, this will be Cute As A Button Designs last blog challenge.  Life has gotten a little too busy and my family is going through a tough time right now.  Therefore, I decided to slow things down a bit.  I want to thank all of you who have participated in our past challenges and for all of your support!!!  We will still continue our Facebook monthly challenges - so invite all of you to join our group and participate in the monthly challenges for a chance to win some beautiful CAAB images.
  •  You are all wonderful people and I pray God's blessings over you and yours.  

  • The theme is ANYTHING

 GOES with optional SPRING theme

Winners will be announced next month and the prize must be claimed before the next challenge goes live.

The winner will be chosen at random and a top 3 will be chosen by our Design Team.

We will allow you to play along with any image but will be limited to 3 entries.  If you enter using a Cute As A Button Designs images by Francesca, you can play as much as you wish. You may also enter your project into as many other challenges as you wish.

The winner will receive 2 images but if the random winner has used a Button image you will get 3 images.

Your image must be new and posted on or after the challenge goes live.

We allow all paper crafting projects, cards, altered art, up-cycling, ATC's etc.

  6. Can you take good clean/clear pictures 300dpi of your work?
  7. Can you meet a deadline?
  8. Can you create up to 2-3 projects a month? (Inspiration, Blog Challenge, New Releases, Facebook Contests, etc.)
I am looking for DT members to join our Team, to showcase my Cute As A Button products on social media.

What do you need to do? 
First of all, you must have a blog and Facebook account that you keep current.

Next, send me an email to serve as your DT Application and 2 projects using a Cute As A Button image showcasing your coloring skills. Please also include the following information:

  1. Your name and location
  2. Your blog address and Facebook page link;
  3. How you would describe your style (we’re looking for all different styles);
  4. Why you would like to work with Cute As A Button products?

  6.  Send me projects showcasing your talent, 2 using a Cute As A Button Designs image.  Projects submitted can include Pocket Letters samples, flip books, mixed media and other crafts besides cards, as well. These can be most recent or older projects (either uploaded to the email or linked to your blog).
  7. Let us know what your experience is working in a design team.  If you don’t have any DT experience, that is okay too!
  8. Any other relevant information you’d like to share.

What is in it for you?
We are NOT looking for people who are into design teams just to grab every digi or free goodies they can; or people who like to gossip. If that is you, then I’m afraid you just won’t be a good fit with us.  

HOWEVER, if you are mature, honest, have integrity, love to have fun, enjoy colouring digital images and creating all kinds of crafts with images, and want to help inspire your fellow Design Team members along with our readers, then this is the place for you! 

1.  You will be provided with images from Cute As A Button Designs to work with and use not only for our challenges, but on projects for yourself and other challenges.

2. Your name and blog link will be displayed on the Cute As A Button Designs Blog.

    1. Terms are for 6 months long (with an option to extend if mutually agreeable) and will start once you have been accepted onto the team.  

    2. You will be on probation for 3 months.

    3. On average you will need to create 2-3 projects a month.  

    4. You may be asked to participate in special events, i.e. blog hops, etc. but these will be planned and discussed well in advance.

    5. Projects  need to be uploaded to our private DT Facebook Group (3) days before your scheduled day. All group communication and file uploading will take place in the Cute As A Button Facebook Private DT Group. It is a private and only Cute As A Button members  will have access to it. 

    6. All info is available well in advance for you to create your projects in time.

    9. Post DT Badge on your blog's sidebar.

    10. Comment on your assigned numbers (no more than 2-3)

    11. Most importantly.  Promote Cute As A Button images wherever you can! (Pinterest, Facebook Groups, Instagram, Magazines, Blogs, etc.)
