Take It Make It Challenge: All New For 2015!

Hello!
Welcome to the launch post of the 2015 Take It, Make It Challenge.....
We have lots to tell you!

We are changing things around a little...giving our challenge players TWO chances to win each month! One winner will be decided by a random number generator...so anyone who enters the challenge has a chance to win the fabulous sponsors prize we will be showcasing! 
Our other winner will be our 'Design Winner', voted for by the blog and magazine DT. This winner will get their project published in Craft Stamper, be a Guest DT member for a challenge, AND get their own winners profile on the blog! The profile will be a wonderful opportunity to share your crafting styles and projects with the world, in a dedicated blog post just for you here on the CS blog!
(To be eligible for either prize you need to make sure your project follows all our guidelines, so please check them out, the guidelines are over on the sidebar!)

Our other HUGE change is that we are going to alternate our themes each month. One month will be a 'Take A Stamp' theme, the next 'Take A Technique' and so on. The 'Take A Technique' months will run in exactly the same way as before, we will look through Craft Stamper magazine and choose a technique for you all to have a go at. The 'Take A Stamp' months will be very exciting.....basically, its Anything Goes! You may enter any project you wish to the challenge...the only rule being you must 'Take A Stamp' and use it somewhere on your piece! So, any STAMPED project at all!

The January Challenge is:
'Take A Stamp'

 So.....get stamping and entering! You will be amazed at the prize on offer for one lucky randomly drawn winner..... Brace Yourself....
 Yes, a very bad picture of a very full box! These are all the stamps in the prize box:
and here is everything else:
Yes, you will win EVERYTHING you see! To give you a better idea, I have written out the full comprehensive list of everything included in the prize box, you'll find that information over on the sidebar!
Phew...are you itching to get the stamps out so you can make something and enter? 
Hang on a minute, we've got some DT eye candy to show you first! 

Winner of the November Challenge: 
WOW! Now that's what I call inspiration!

So...all you have to do now is have a quick read of the guidelines to make sure you're on the right track, get your stamps out and PLAY! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Don't forget to check back next Friday, as we'll be starting a very special Blog Hop, with loads more chances to win some fabulous prizes!
 Good Luck!

  25. Sigh. Nothing happens when I click on the guidelines on the sidebar for the rules. Wish everything was here in one place.

    1. Hello Lucretia,
      Just checking, you are clicking the purple page links on the sidebar, under the guidelines section title, not the pink title itself? All the purple links are working for me when I click them! As you can see, the guidelines are quite long, so we moved them to their own page as keeping them with the main blog post was making the post extremely long and unwieldy. Hope that helps! xx

    2. Yep, clicked on the purple page links alright, but won't work for me. Several things don't seem to work for me that work for other people, so it must be our weird computer. Thanks anyway.
