October Guest Designer Call

Hey there, this is a new Guest Designer Call for October! Woohoo!

Time flies by but mail takes a while, so we need to be kind of early :)


Our Guest Designer will 
  • get one stamp set of their choice (including the October release!)
  • be featured with three posts on our blog (with at least 1 new project per post) in October/ November
  • be featured on our facebook-page, twitter, etc...

If you'd like to be that person, this is what we ask you to do:
  • Like us on Facebook
  • Create a NEW project (it does not have to be a card!) with at least one of our stamps or freebies and post it on your blog. (Feel free to combine with other stamps)
  • Add the "I love to play with Create A Smile" badge to your post, tell your readers about our Guest Design Team spot and link back to this post.
  • Leave a link to your post (not your entire blog) using the linky tool.
  • Enter as many projects as you like.
  • The linky tool closes on Saturday September 13th at 8am CET (2am EST). Our Guest Designer will be announced on Sunday September 14th.

This is what we're looking for:
  • Great design. Not cluttered, but with detail - that's what we love (A tough combo!)
  • Impressive use of techniques. They can be simple but still have a great impact. Get the best out of our stamps!
  • Great Photography! I found out that cards that really catch my eye are usually the ones with the best photo. You want your projects to SHINE so take your time to take great photos! That makes a bigger difference than you might think.
  • Fairplay. I was beyond impressed how many of you left supportive comments on each other's blog. We just love the encouraging paper crafting community!
  • Cleverness. A card that surprises us, makes us giggle or uses stamps in a way that we would never have expected are right up our alley!
We are beyond excited to see your creations and get to know you!!!


  1. Ups, hat sich da ein kleiner Fehler beim Datum eingeschlichen? Der DT-Call für Oktober endet doch bestimmt im September, nicht im Oktober, oder?

    1. Huch! Meine Konzentration lässt heute wirklich zu wünschen übrig. Danke! :)

    2. Ach, kein Ding! Freut mich, wenn ich helfen konnte. :)

  2. I am not a member of Facebook. Is this a requirement to apply for this spot?

    1. I am not too strict about this - just give it a try! :)

  3. Just found your stamps and your site, missed this-would have loved to give this a go- hoping you do another one!
