Freebie! Challenge Competition No 7 'Love & Marriage', Winner of No 6 & The New DT

FREE 'love' please take and enjoy!
See Kim's idea...
Competition No 7 - 'Love & Marriage'
  • With the wedding season well under way this fortnights challenge is to create an item (card or other eg, tag, bookmark, wedding stationery..) on the theme of 'LOVE &/OR MARRIAGE'
  • The prize is a Bee Crafty image of your choice (exc. PDFs & sets)!
  • Deadline Midday Saturday 4th July (UK time.)
  • As usual you must include a bit of digital somewhere, it doesn't have to be a Bee Crafty image, however I am giving away the freebie above if you want to use that, please take it from the blog and enjoy (just click on it to enlarge then save to your computer )
  • Spread the word!
Trixi's gorgeous design below should inspire. She has used the 'bay tree' from Bee Crafty's wedding range and letters from the 'Birdy Alphabet'

And from Christine

Now my download shelves are well stocked, I'm going to focus on a new look competition. The prize will still be any one of my downloads (with the exception of PDFs and Sets) but I am removing the condition to buy, or even use one of my downloads. I hope lots of you will get involved, please take any of my badges to add to your own blogs and spread the word :)
The new rules are these;
1) Each fortnightly competition will be based around a theme (with the occasional freebie!)
2) Any craft project is allowed - cards, bookmarks (see Trixi's fantastic example in the Designer Spot) tags, really anything you can think of!
3) Your design must include a bit of 'digital' somewhere...anywhere, it could be the main theme or tucked away in a corner or inside. You can use anyones downloads, not just Bee Crafty's.
* Tip: consider entering several different creative challenges with one item*

This fortnights COMPETITION No. 6 (see rules above and right) is...
Theme - Use letters, numbers and/or words e.g., Happy Birthday tag, Age Card, Monogram bookmark...Deadline Midday (UK) Friday 19th June (day earlier than usual.)

I am looking for a small DT to creating fortnightly items for Bee Crafty as examples to inspire crafters in their own creations and promote my designs. I would love to hear from you if you are interested, I am particularly looking for crafters who like to use digital images. Add a comment below or email me (address to the right.) This is what it would involve...

  • Create fortnightly projects (cards or other items) that illustrate the up coming competition theme, which I will give you well in advance

  • Your project would also need to include a Bee Crafty image (of your choice), which I will send you for FREE

  • Send me an image of your item for me to use on my blog and elsewhere at least the day before the appropriate competition launch

  • Post your project on your own blog with a link to me after it has appeared on Bee Crafty

  • I will reference you clearly on my blog and design a little banner for you to add to your own

  • Shout about Bee Crafty's downloads and competitions wherever possible!

Do email if you have any further questions, I look forward to hearing from you! I will announce the DT in next fortnights post and set them onto their first creative project :)
