It's that Time again! SPRING DT search is on!
 
You're being treated to a
SHOPPING SPREE at MACY'S!

I worked in MACY's in Manhattan back in the day...I even got to participate in the Thanksgiving day Parade (I was a clown LOL)! I have many fond memories of that store and I loved visiting each floor and being inspired by the displays, products and people there.


To enter the competition for this Clean & Simple DT search, make a CAS card following the instructions posted on March 14th at about 8:00 PM EST. And then post in this thread with a link to your card.

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 Thursday March 14th @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#1 Due Sunday, March 17th @ Noon (EST)

DT Challenge #2 posted Monday, March 18th with TOP 20 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#2 Due Thursday March 21st @ Noon (EST)

DT Challenge #3 posted Friday March 22nd with TOP 10 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EST)
#3 Due Monday, March 25th @ Noon (EST)

DT and Guest DT Reveal Party
Wednesday, March 27th 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, MARCH 31st (EASTER SUNDAY) 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 Spring Design Team Schedule 13 challenges (April 2013 - June 2013)

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 ONLY thread for these challenges- I find it's easier to keep them all together so I will leave posts open following this one for the upcoming challenges.

Challenge #1 First Floor- COSMETICS

FIRST FLOOR......(ding)

COSMETICS!


Challenge #1:

I LOVE the cosmetics section at the department store...mostly because they let you play and try it all out before you buy it! So for this first challenge let's PLAY!

For this first challenge I was to see what you can do with things like paint, wet embossing, re-inkers, etc. Take out that acrylic paint you bought on sale....break out your favorite colored embossing powders....try out some crackle paint or rock candy from Ranger....use your water brush or a wet paintbrush with your kids' water color paints (the 99 cent store ones are awesome!) ...... anything as long as it's not the usual ink and stamp.

Let's see some fabulous MAKE-UP!

KEYWORD: CASSpringDT2013A

PS I know there are 14 GD's....I couldn't make a few decisions... so the Spring Term will go 2 extra weeks to July 8th. Technically, September is still summer to me in Florida so the Summer Team is ok!

stampercamper 03-14-2013 08:50 AM

Oh how fun! I just LOVE seeing all the creative ideas! Good luck everyone!

resqbarbie 03-14-2013 10:04 AM

I posted the first challenge early....hope to see lots of players this round!

muzbysmom 03-14-2013 10:30 AM

Makeup? What's make up? I was born with natural beauty! Oh my! Make up??

Sarah.Jane 03-14-2013 02:35 PM

ohhh, I knew I was early but popped in anyway. Fingers crossed I can steal some nap time to play this afternoon - definitely need to put my thinking cap on for this one!

Greywolf 03-14-2013 03:34 PM

I also worked at Macy's - in San Fransisco in 1970-71 in the office, tabulating sales during Christmas (before computers!) We worked about ten hours a day and rarely got to see anything in the actual store.

I am so honored to be invited! Thank you. I don't wear makeup, but I do know how to play! :D

muzbysmom 03-14-2013 04:12 PM

Is this where we can post links to our cards? I hope so because....

Just looked at the gallery and my card's not in it although I copied and pasted the keyword from this thread. Wonder why?

Lynn, it appears they have made the gallery unavailable for some reason. I can get to my card from this posting spot but the gallery does not bring up the entire group.

muzbysmom 03-15-2013 05:50 AM

I, too, can't call up the gallery this morning. I did post a link here so hopefully that's good enough.........

cjzim 03-15-2013 08:10 AM

Oh, fun challenge! I never worked in Macy's but my DD and I love to browse the cosmetics counters there : ) Here is mine:

What a fun first challenge!! Thanks Denise. CASSpringDT2013A, Beauty... by Luv Flowers - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

resqbarbie 03-15-2013 06:15 PM

I am trying to figure out what is wrong with the gallery....

SeattleStamper 03-15-2013 06:15 PM

I love a challenge and what could be better than a fashion/shopping themed challenge? Here is my submission for the first challenge

Misty Hi

Great challenge Denise! Here's my card:

hmmmm, my card is not showing up in the gallery for the first challenge anymore......

mepylant 03-16-2013 08:22 AM

uh oh! SCS has a hiccup. I just found a recent thread. There is a kink in the keywords. MODS are working to try to fix it but think they will need to get someone in to do so.

Just FYI

Greywolf 03-16-2013 09:17 AM

I'm uploading my card and hoping that the SCS "hiccup" will be fixed soon.

I took my card to Macy's to for a makeup session.

resqbarbie 03-16-2013 05:09 PM

so happy you could all play along! PLEASE post your links here so I can double check things if they do not show up in the gallery!

resqbarbie 03-16-2013 05:14 PM

everyone who posted here with a link I have checked and commented...if you did not link here and there is no comment form me, I didnt see it....so post up your link!

momof5sons 03-16-2013 06:31 PM

The gallery looks amazing! I'm sure that you'll have a fantastic DT, Denise. As for me - having an Asperger child in high school is more work, not less than middle school, so I can't make a weekly commitment right now. I would love a GD spot, though if you deem me worthy. Here is my One Life card.

Missro 03-16-2013 07:58 PM

Fun challenge Denise! Here's my Windswept Blues!

LittleSeaOtter 03-16-2013 11:47 PM

Thanks for a great challenge!

Because I'm away for 3 weeks in May, please consider me as a guest designer only.

Denise, I think there's another hiccup with the gallery...

Alwaysinking 03-17-2013 09:11 AM

I know I was right at the wire with my submission, but hope it still counts. Regardless I had fun playing with my distress stains, and using a stamp set I had not opened yet. This is my submission.
