Default Hooray! It's THAT time again! Summer DT Search is NOW!

The food will be plentiful
And the beer will flow
It'll be great fun & don't worry
The lobsters won't know!


You are invited to join us for a

LOBSTER BAKE!


To enter the competition for this Clean & Simple DT search, make a CAS card following the instructions...
they will be posted here on June 21st at about 8:00 PM EST . Then post a link to your card in the separate chat and posting thread.

Who can play for a DT spot? Anyone except store owners and past CAS DT members. (But you can play just for the fun of a challenge. )


Calendar of Events

DT challenge #1 posted Friday June 21st @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#1 Due Monday, June 24th @ 8PM (EST)

DT Challenge #2 posted Tuesday June 25th with TOP 20 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#2 Due Thursday June 27th @ Noon (EST)

DT Challenge #3 posted Friday June 28th with TOP 10 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#3 Due Monday, July 1st @ Noon (EST)

DT and Guest DT Reveal Party
Wednesday, July 3rd starting @ 8PM (EST)


Standard Expectations for a DT member : I need you to post your sample for each challenge on Sunday evening between 9PM - 10PM EST. You may miss 1 or 2 weeks do to illness or emergencies. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIRST DAY FOR THIS TEAM WILL BE SUNDAY, JULY 8th) You will be participating in choosing the challenges for the season during your 2nd week as a DT member. When the season is ending and a new DT search is going on, I would like you to help with the judging, especially in the final round.

CAS Summer Design Team Schedule

In addition to the four new DT members, there will be a guest designer each week (13 total) If you would like only to be considered as a guest designer, please let us know on the thread and/or in the comment section of your card when uploading.

TIP: This is a contest for CLEAN & SIMPLE . We all push the definition once in awhile and while we LOVE to see people change things up and see the challenge in different ways, it makes it difficult to judge for the design team. This is why in this case we lean towards the conservative CAS designs.

Advice: Please remember that everyone who participates wants very badly to be on the design team. The reason why Jen started the guest designers was so that more could get involved. That said, there will always be disappointments. Please remember it also comes with more opportunities. This happens every 3 months. Four times a year is great for this type of event! To do it more often would be too stressful. These events take a lot of time I always love doing them. And it's easier and happier when everyone is a good sport. We do this for YOU! (In fact, the CAS challenge was the very first challenge to have a design team!) We want as many people as possible to experience being on the team. Some people may have to wait longer than others, but waiting builds perseverance and strength. Please have fun!!!

Photos: Please remember the clearer the photo of your card is, the better it will look. Make it stand out and make us say "WOW!" Photo software programs have editing options. The most important ones for us are the lighting and sharpness features.

THIS will be the Main challeneg and info thread for these challenges- there will be a separate thread for chatting and posting your cards.

Default CHALLENGE #1

Challenge #1: - COLOR CHALLENGE
Those of us on the North East know well what a lobster bake entails! Fun, food and friends! Much like any other summertime party! For the first challenge, we are going to get into the theme and use the colors of the lobster bake! Take a look at the photo collage provided and use those colors to make a card worthy of any summer lobster bake! I recommend using

RED , AQUA or NAVY , YELLOW , and WHITE

image.jpg

KEYWORD: CASSummerDT2013A
DUE DATE: ****6/24/13 8PM EST****

CASSummerDT2013A Gallery

(No spaces CAS 2013 summer DT A -- not good. If you are concerned about getting it right, copy & paste it into your keyword box.)

By adding just CAS in your keyword box, you will be in 2 galleries. Separate all keywords by a comma followed by a space.

Please also post a link in this thread just in case there is an error with the keyword or if the gallery is being finicky on the judging days.

Submission Deadline: Monday, June 24th @ 8pm* (EST)



* TIME & DAY EXTENDED TO MONDAY 6/24 @8 PM!!

*New Rules as of Fall 2010:
Please don't combine this challenge with any other current SCS challenge.
Please make only one card. (It's easier to narrow down the field this way.)

TY to simplybeautiful for this beautiful sample! Here is one from me too!

Default Top 10

Normally, we have more than 20 players and the first cut is to narrow it down to a top 20. Since its summer and lots of people are on vacation and unable to participate due to summer trips, we have had only 16 participants. So....

Everyone who has played will at least get to be a Guest Designer! We will narrow it down to a top 10 now and eventually have 3 (three) Design Team Members and 13 GD's for the season. Thanks to everyone who played!

Here are the top 10 who will try for one of the 3 DT spots!

genistamps
LMcAree
muzbysmom
GimmeInk
mamaxsix
Sarah.Jane
ashjoy
lazylizard
Allee's
Donidoodle

Anyone can play along in challenge #2 but only these 10 will be eligible to win the Design Team spots! Good Luck!
