Challenge #67 - Floss or Twine

Thank you to everyone who played along with our embossing challenge last moth.

For Challenge No #67 we would like to see you make use of that FLOSS or TWINE.
Embroidery Floss and Bakers Twine have become very popular over the past few years and we would like to see how you make use of it. Wrap it around your alphas, swirl it around you layout, use it as an accent or very prominently on your projects. You can use as little or as much as you like.

Be sure and comment with a link to your *newly created* project so we can see and comment on them. 
If you link us to an online gallery, make sure that you only use one for which we do not need to register in order to view/comment
Please also consider to switch of word verification on your blogs if you would like our DT to leave comment. If you are worried about Spam you may want to have commen moderation enabled instead

And here are our DT examples to give you an idea on how to make use of floss or twine

DT Call 2012 - September - December

Last DT Call for 2012

Our current DT are still rocking the crap until the end of August but as you all know, we like to keep things cool and stress free. So we give you loads of time to get your application in if you fancy becoming part of our fabulous Design Team.

Are you a hoarder? Do you surround yourself with pretty papers, chipboard, embellishments and continue to add to your stash rather than use it?

Well then you are the perfect crafter to become part of our DT.
Scrap You Crap is looking for eight to ten team members and ideally we would love to have a good mixture of cardmakers and scrapbookers.

**What do we ask of our Designers?
Just one project per month – due on the 7th as our challenges will go live on the 15th.
Register for our DT forum, where we will be throwing ideas around for future challenges and communicate with each other. We do not ask for gazillions of posts, just a bi-monthly check in
Promote SYC wherever possible, for example on your personal blog, online communities.
Commit to a four month term with the possibility of extending this for another term.
Leave comments on all challenge entries - this is super important and will be monitored

**What do our Designers get in return?
The gratification of having used up all that stash which gathered dust. As the concept of the blog is to make use of the stash you already own, it would be kind of defeating the object to compensate with product, right? And also, this gives you the perfect excuse to go and buy more stash...seeing that you used the old one up for our challenges :)
Designers will have a permanent link to their blog (or homepage) on our site.

If you want to become part of this well-established challenge blog, send an email to: and don’t forget to put SYC DT Call in the subject line.

We would like you to submit three projects (layouts or cards) which you feel represent your style the best but they don’t have to be newly created. Please do not send more than pictures for three projects. You can email us images of stuff you have already done before no need to recreate and keep it a secret. Please DO NOT embed images within your email we require them as attachments only. Please make sure that your pictures are not blurry and of a maximum size of 700 x 700 pixels.

Don’t forget to include a link to your personal blog (if you have one) as we are nosy like that and fancy checking you out...

Internationals are more than welcome and the deadline for this call is August 10th 2012. If accepted, your term runs from September 2012 through to December 2012. No prior DT experience is required.

We will contact the successful applicants no later than August 15th 2012.

If you have any questions, please shoot us an email to: and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to hear from you all!
