IT's That TIME again....the Winter DT Search is ON!
 
You are Invited to a


HOLIDAY MOVIE PARTY!


We are having a holiday movie party and you are invited! My family loves to gather around the TV and watch all the best holiday movies... It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Year Without a Santa Claus are our favorites!
This year everyone is invited to join us for our Seasonal Design Team search at my family's movie party!


To enter the competition for this Clean & Simple DT search, make a CAS card following the instructions posted on Sunday evening at about 8:00 PM EDT. 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 Friday, November 23rd @ approx. 10:00 PM (EDT)
#1 Due Monday, November 26th @ Noon (EDT)

DT Challenge #2 posted Tuesday, November 27th with TOP 20 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EDT)
#2 Due Friday, November 30th @ Noon (EDT)

DT Challenge #3 posted Saturday, December 1st with TOP 10 @ approx. 8:00 PM (EDT)
#3 Due Monday, December 3rd @ Noon (EDT)

DT and Guest DT Reveal Party
Wednesday, December 5th starting @ 8PM EDT


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. 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 Winter Design Team Schedule (December 2012- March 2013)

In addition to the four new DT members, there will be a guest designer each week. 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.

Clownmom 11-24-2012 05:38 AM

I'm trying again! Here's my card, White Christmas , based on the classic Bing Crosby movie "Holiday Inn."

bigfootbecky 11-24-2012 06:04 AM

Thanks for hosting the DT search, Denise! I really enjoy this gallery and appreciate all the work you've done since taking over from Jenn.

mamaxsix 11-24-2012 08:02 AM

Great minds think alike...I'm with Lois/Clownmom back with the classic holiday song:
I'm Dreaming

allee's 11-24-2012 10:42 AM

My inspiration came from the Christmas hit "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" sung by Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. Louis.

Merry Little Christmas

hobbydujour 11-24-2012 11:17 AM

Great theme for Challenge #1, Denise. I chose "White Christmas" from "Holiday Inn".

I would only like to be considered for a Guest position...since again I have travel plans which would make me unavailable for some of the weeks in this 3 month period. Thanks.

WHITE CHRISTMAS

lazylizard 11-24-2012 01:22 PM

This is my submission for the first challenge....although I just realized the deadline was Noon EST, so it may not beaccepted. My song was "White Christmas", but I ended up with a medely of that, "Frosty the Snowman", and "Let it Snow"....A medley is good right?..especially when they all relate tosnow, which it is doing heavily right now here in the Black Hills.

I was inspired by "Frosty the Snowman". Here's my submission:

And because I serve as a Town Clerk and County Board Supervisor, my time is limited at certain times of the month, so if I'm lucky enough to make it through the challenges, I'd really only like to be a guest designer at this time. Good luck to everyone entering the challenge!!!!!

My card for round one of the CAS Winter DT challenge is inspired by Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer which is both the song title and the movie it's from.

janellelarson 11-26-2012 07:05 AM

I spent too much time watching football and no time making cards! Barely got this done in time, but here is my Holly Jolly Christmas card (song was sung by Burl Ives in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer):

susanbri 11-26-2012 07:51 AM

I've never attempted the Design Team search before but the next few months are a good time for me so I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring.

Here's my card for the first challenge:

Frosty the Snowman

gabalot 11-26-2012 08:06 AM

I just discovered that I had my card in a gallery wherein I was the only one in it! I had the wrong keyword! Dah! I changed the title and keyword but the title never changed over. The keyword is now correct so hopefully it is in the right place. :)

Here it is:
