Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here's the scoop:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation to your blog or an online gallery, and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

CSC199 winners

Such a hard choice I had this week, choosing the projects to highlight! You outdid yourselves! Thank you all for sharing your artwork with us :)
......................................................................................... 

Our winner for CSC199 is Leigh from To The Full!!



There's so much possibility that the technique on inlaying patterned paper in die cut background yields, and Leigh chose a combination that makes you slap your forehead and shout: why didn't I think of that?! Brilliant!!
.........................................................................................

Our Top 3 winners are:



Cecilia @ Cecilia's Cards
Dancing Quinn
Mary @ Spectrum Crafts
......................................................................................... 

Well done, everyone! Winners, feel free to grab your badges from the menu link under the blog header.

Do you know what challenge is it tomorrow? 200th!! YAY! Hope you'll all come and play!

Hello and welcome to a new challenge with our fantastic July Muse, Shari Carroll! This week is perfect if you'd like to put your die-cutting skills to action. The inspiration sets the bar high and so do our Team's superb creations - now it's your turn to show us what you've got :)

We have no Guest Designer search this week, for in August we're kicking off our 4th Anniversary and things will be a little bit different! Wow, guys... it's been this long!!
