Clearly Besotted Challenge #1 - Anything Goes

*CLOSED: WINNER - TAMARA KING (PICKLED PAPERCRAFTS)*

Welcome to the first Clearly Besotted Monthly Challenge, I have never hosted a challenge before so please forgive me if I miss anything out.

It's an easy one to kick off with, the challenge is simply....'Anything Goes'.  Pretty self explanatory I hope, I just want to see you put your Clearly Besotted products to use!  I'm also on the lookout for an August Guest Designer so please register your interest with your submission :)

Before I outline the rules, how about some amazing inspiration from the Design Team extraordinaire?....







Aren't they truly an impressive bunch of ladies? *happy sigh*

In order to qualify for the prize (open to everyone worldwide), please kindly adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Your crafty creation must contain at least one Clearly Besotted product.
  • It must be posted on your blog or an online gallery and linked below - direct link to post only please.
  • The closing date for entries is Sunday 23rd June 2013 (10:55 GMT).
  • Multiple entries are permitted but they must be a new creation each time.
  • Please put GD next to your name if you'd like to be considered for our August Guest Designer Spot (contains a couple of my favourite sets to date!).

Because it's the first ever challenge, the prize is five Clearly Besotted stamp sets of the (randomly selected) winner's choice.

Please do join in if you can, I am genuinely so excited to see what you come up with!

Wow yess I' m a challenge freak so great you do Stephanie can't wait to play along but I first wait for my order to arrive so I can play with the new stamps.
And what a great team you have love all the examples and inspiration.

Cedar of Lebanon said...

I'm so sorry Steph, you seriously need to not just double, but triple the quantity of your stamps! I was away for a few days, and the first thing I came back was to order some stamps and now they are all gone!! Argh, really gutted, lol, but also so happy for you that the stamps are sold so well. Anyway, when will the april shower back in stock? I seriously can't wait for another month, it will kill me. Lol!! xx

Katie Ann Brooks said...

Congrats on putting on your first challenge! The DT made amazing inspiration cards for sure. I wish I had some of your cutie-patootie stamps so I could participate. I guess, I'll have to work on remedying that... ;)

Vicki Dutcher said...
