{July} Blog Hop and Inspiration Challenge!

>> Thursday, June 30, 2011

Welcome! We are so glad you could join us for our third Inspirational Blog Hop! June has been a busy month, but July promises to hold even more wonderful things, and it begins with this blog hop. We are so excited about what the design team has come up with based on the July Inspiration and .... the sponsors this month have gone over the top with some fabulous prizes for our participants.

Here is what the lead design team came up with to get you started!

Don't you just love the flowers? They were very generously donated by our sponsor Accents and Petals for the lead design team to work with. The winner of our inspiration challenge receive 100 of these birch wood blooms!

Ready to see what the rest of the team came up with? Once again we were privileged to work with an extremely talented group of designers who have made projects based upon the July Inspiration. Be sure to hop through the blogs and leave a little note at each stop along the way. Once you are done the hop, be sure to finish with the Polkadot Door, because by commenting on this post and following the Polkadot Door you have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Scrapbits, just for playing along!


Our Challenge winner will receive 100 of these
birch wood blooms from Accents and Pearls!

Our feature designer will receive these beautiful pieces, as well
as a selection of custom ordered handmade flowers from Scrapn4mygirlz.
Just for hopping, one lucky participant will also recieve a 
$20 gift certificate to Scrapbits!

As well, three to five authors of the most impressive creations
will be chosen to join our July Design Team and Blog Hop, and 
compete for the Feature Designer prize in August!

Inspiration Details :
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (photo, sentiment, or element : doillie).
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code PDD), and link it here with the Mr. Linky widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog. 
  • A new challenge is being posted the first of every month, and you've got until midnight on 15th to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project. We ask that you combine this challenge with no more than 3 other challenges.
  • We will choose one winner  from the list of players who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor(s). In addition, the authors of the three to five most impressive creations will awarded the design team positions for the following month, as well as the opportunity to be our featured designer. Special consideration will be given to participants who use all three of the inspiration elements. 
  • We will announce the Inspiration Challenge winners on the 20th. Design team members will be contacted before then by email.
  • Above all, have fun - and be inspired!
