Guest Design Team Member Call (June)

Starting on Sunday, June 6th, I will be transforming my blog into a Challenge Blog!  I am so excited to be starting this!  My blog will still be "Always Playing With Paper" but now it will be home base for my lovely and talented Design Team known as the "Paper Players"!

Here are the FABULOUS Paper Players (in alphabetical order):
Corie of Corie's Creations
Jaydee of Jaydee's Stamping Space
LeAnne of Wee Inklings
Lesley of Always Playing with Paper (That's me!!)

In the meantime, I have a PRE-CHALLENGE to get you all warmed up! We are looking for a Guest Paper Player for the month of June.  If you would be interested in being that person, please:
  1. Create and post on your blog a NEW card, scrapbook layout, 3D item or other paper craft project and then add it to the linky below by Saturday, May 29th. 
  2. Mention in your post why you would like to be June's Guest Paper Player!  
  3. Your creation can be something you have created for another current challenge...please share any new paper project you'd like!
Eventhough we will be using all SU! products with our challenges, we welcome you to use whatever items you have with our weekly challenges! If you would like to be a Guest Paper Player, please use Stampin' Up Products.  Thank you for your understanding!

The Guest Paper Player will design 4 samples for the month of June based on our Challenges. Each week will be a different challenge.  You do need to have a blog to be a Guest Paper Player.

Here is the challenge rotation: (on Sundays)
Week #1: Theme (Birthday, Sympathy, Christmas, Etc.)
Week #2: Colour Challenge
Week #3: Sketch Challenge
Week #4: Paper Player Plus Challenge (A Technique or 3D Challenge)
Week #5: Anything Goes (Share a project of your choice)

In the next few weeks, I will be making some cosmetic changes to my blog, adding a new banner and some other fun stuff.  I will also be adding some pictures and bios of the Paper Players.

I will announce our June Guest Paper Player on Sunday, May 31st.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get the chance to play along! 
Lesley :)
