We Need A Few New DT Members....

A few of our lovelies have decided to move on from SGC at the end of the DT term this time, however we were incredibly stoked that so many of our DT wanted to stay on :)

So we are looking for 5 new members to join our team here.

If you enjoy paper craft of any type, we would love to hear from you.
You will need to make a project following a challenge theme once every 4 weeks as our team is split into 2 groups.
If you are a cardmaker you will need to be able to use digital images provided by our sponsors.
We are a friendly, easy going group with no drama.
You will need to have facebook as we have a private facebook group where we communicate.
Also you will need to have a blogger account to be able to upload your projects ready for me to add to the challenge blog.

If this sounds like a design team that you would like to be on please email Louise at louiseforsyth(dot)su(at)gmail(dot)com

I look forward to hearing from you.

The call will close once the spaces have been filled
