What we’re looking for:
– A 6-month commitment.
– 1 project per challenge, which will equal 4 projects per month (designers will receive challenges before the general public in order to help them manage their creative time).

What you can expect:
– A monthly box of goodies from our sponsors – we promise you’ll know them and love them.
– Monthly design team giveaways.
– Lots of love and support from the BetterScrap community.
– The warm & fuzzy feeling that goes with knowing you’ve helped spark someone’s creativity.
How you can apply:
– Pictures/Scans of five (5) projects that you feel show your style and who you are as a scrapbooker and paper crafter. Please include at least three (3) layouts of any size, and two additional projects such as cards, mini albums, or altered art projects.
– Tell us who you are in 140 characters or less.
– Tell us how you think you can benefit the Better Living Through Scrapbooking team and how you will help promote the site (in as many characters as you want!)
Deadline for entries is July 25th, 2010. We will announce the new team, as well as roll out the very 1st BetterScrap challenge on August 1st, 2010.
WHOOHOO… Are you ready for some blog hopping fun??? Most of the Shabby girls, along with Michelle (our fabulous Sponsor Purple Onion) and Sharon (our fabulous guestie) this month have put together a rak each on their blogs that you could be lucky enough to win by random draw plus there's TWO RAKs here to be won here on LGS as well!
That means there will be quite a few raks up for grabs. Now just what do you need to do to be in the running for them?
Here are the details:
Over the weekend, the girls will be popping up a question relating to either the Shabby blog or one of the team members, along with a photo of their rak.
Post a comment on their blog to be in the running for that rak and then find the answer to their question (don't post the answer there!!) because you will need to gather all the answers from each blog and email them to Julie [email protected] in one email by midnight TUES 13 July(Aust time-so check the clock at the top of our LGS blog if you are not sure)
Please click here for full details.
