Announcing the New Design Team!

I'm very excited to announce the first-ever design team for Handmade Harbour.

I was planning a team of just six, but I became overwhelmed by the really high standard of applications, and felt that some of those applicants just could not be turned down!  So I decided to make the team bigger than I'd originally planned.

So, eleven lovely and very creative ladies from around the world have joined together with me to bring you inspiration, cardmaking techniques, scrapbooking ideas, papercrafting tutorials - and lots of fun and colour - using Handmade Harbour's digi stamps.  They'll be creating things like this...

I've been amazed by what seems a bit of a magical transformation of my images so far!

How will it work?

Well, next week we are starting a weekly challenge right here on the Handmade Harbour blog.  The design team will be joining in every week (although each DT member will be contributing fortnightly, unless they feel the urge to jump in on their week off!).  If you are into papercrafting, we'd love to have you link up with us - you don't have to be part of the design team and you don't have to have an invitation.  You don't even need to use a Handmade Harbour digi stamp (although there will be a prize up for grabs if you do!).

Watch out for it next week - there will be no real theme for the first couple of weeks (an "anything goes" theme, if you like!) but there are challenge themes on the way!

Meanwhile, would you like to read more about the design team in their own words?  Pop over and have a nosy - from that page you can also visit their blogs and get a flavour of crafting in Canada, Australia and various parts of the United States as well as here in the not-so-sunny-at-the-moment-even-though-it's-summer United Kingdom.

I can't wait either, Lynne - it's a really exciting time. The credit for the amazingly diverse group must go to the individuals themselves - I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to have gathered such a fabulous group together!
