Dare To Get Dirty 2013!
 
1 Attachment(s)

Come celebrate with us
Since July of 2004, we’ve thanked our Fan Club members for supporting Splitcoast financially with a themed monthly gallery. We think up a theme, and our twelve talented designers create away, filling the gallery with all kinds of things to inspire and enable, and to give you a little something extra for your contributions to Splitcoast. We know you love to ogle the projects every month, and we know you’re all immensely talented, too.


Then we thought - how fun would it be get our Fan Club members to play along in challenges with us? With that thought, Dare to Get Dirty week was born. We're happy to celebrate our eighth anniversary with you with a week full of stamping challenges.

So what’s this all about?

Easy. It’s all about you. Sure, we’re playing, too, but we want to see what you do when you're challenged!

Our Dirty Dozen Designers, both past and present, have a fun week planned for you. You’ll see a little of everything – inspiration, 3D items, color and layout challenges, techniques, tutorials . . . . and besides the stamping part of things, we wanted to add something else, more personal interaction! We’ve got everything all pre-posted and ready to go, and the girls will be there in the chat threads to answer any of your pressing questions. If you’ve ever wondered how someone does something, ask away. They’re there to dish and share their dirty little secrets with you! We will even have a fun, new live chat feature waiting for you in the challenge forum!

Do I have to do them all?

Nah, just do what you can or what grabs you, or just jump in and chat with the girls if you can’t actually stamp during the challenges. We want to see your work and get to know you better!

What if I do do them all?

Good question! :wink: How about a prize drawing for those who complete all of the challenges (combining challenges is cool, of course!) and upload by August 5th?

Number of Winners? Well, we probably better have a dozen! And our sponsors this year are our AMAZING Member Companies, so get ready to win products from your favorite companies!

So when does it all start?
Saturday, July 27th, we’ll post the first set of challenges here, and will continue posting challenges through Friday, August 2nd.

Are there any rules?

Have fun! Combine challenges, go nuts with one challenge and do ten entries. Upload to your gallery, post your creations on your blog . . . just keep the details of the challenges here, okay? (This means in your description, don't say: "This card is for Kim's challenge to use blue and yellow - challenge details are for Fan Club members only) That’s it!

Only Fan Club Members will be able to upload to this event gallery and win prizes, but everyone will be able to view and comment on your creations.

So if you haven't joined the Fan Club yet - what are you waiting for? This is your Dirty Dare! Join here and join in the fun!

(Blog blinkie code attached :) )

Squeeeeeee!

Can hardly wait!

Somehow, I don't think that permission slip will make ANY difference, though. I'll just have to add to what I'm already doing!

Margscardcrazy 06-22-2013 04:38 PM

Hay Lydia, do you think the permission slip would work for my boss as well?? ;)
I might try it and see :lol:
Cheers

Awesomeness! Countdown: 34 Days. Right?

tishahendricks 06-22-2013 06:46 PM

And this is my reminder to renew my membership too! :D
I love being able to upload on Sundays!

Cook22 06-23-2013 12:32 AM

Yay!!!!! Sticking that in my diary straight away.
I just renewed my membership last week :D.
I'm definitely going to carve out some time from the mad busy-ness of life these days.

muscrat 06-23-2013 03:38 AM

I haven't played before. Is there one challenge a day or is this challenges all day long? Is there a thread explaining details? I've read a few and can't seem to gather how it works.

There are 5-7 challenges each day - woo hoo! :) And yes, there will be a thread with all the deets in the Fan Club forum. The challenges are fantastic and the girls will share tips and tricks along the way :)

muscrat 06-23-2013 04:50 AM

Sounds like fun. I may give it a try this year!

mamaxsix 06-23-2013 09:36 AM

Looking forward to it, though a family reunion will put me behind at the start :(. I had a blast last year though and won a prize on top of the fun!

Crafty Math Chick 06-23-2013 01:31 PM

SWEET! I was wondering when DTGD was starting this year, and just went looking for it in the DTGD forum - guess I was looking in the wrong place!

PRAYING I am well enough to participate this year, I have been so ill with one thing or another I have made very few cards this year... which is already about half over! :(

tessaduck 06-23-2013 02:13 PM

33 days. But who's counting...?!

lisahenke 06-24-2013 06:58 AM

bring on the FUN!!

gregzgurl 06-24-2013 07:32 AM

DTGD is the whole reason (well, not the WHOLE reason...) that I joined the Fan Club! Maybe I can actually participate this year! I'll be back from my new-grandma trip, the kitchen remodel is done... :)

tessaduck 06-24-2013 07:48 AM

32

muscrat 06-24-2013 03:33 PM

So is there somewhere to read how this works? Specifically I am wanting to know if there is a time limit on each challenge and any other rules I may need to know?

ashjoy 06-25-2013 06:11 AM

Added the blinkie to my blog, but is there one for siggys?

ohmypaper! 06-25-2013 04:47 PM

Phew! Brenda, I am sure glad you posted how many days we have left because I was thinking June 27th and panicking! I don't have any time this week or next week to play! For some reason my brain didn't compute JULY!!! I had so much fun last year playing in my first "Dare to get Dirty" challenges.

I have added the blinkie to my blog too! That was easy peasy!

Ha!

Oh, yeah. 31.

JBgreendawn 06-26-2013 06:22 AM

Ah I love it... snagged me one. :)

Muscat, I think the only timed challenges are VSN... this there may be a time limit to get the projects into the DTGD gallery though but, I think it's a few days or a week after it. the rules will get posted when it happens, the main thing is to enjoy it. :) some of the best cards I have ever made were done for DTGD challenges.

tessaduck 06-26-2013 06:29 AM

30!!!!!!!!!

mrslaird 06-26-2013 06:32 AM

So excited!!!!

I think you are right. I think I'm confusing this with vsn. Thanks!

ashjoy 06-27-2013 10:36 AM

Will there be a suggested shopping list?

UnderstandBlue 06-27-2013 10:39 AM

Yes - and I'm glad you said that today - we'll get started on it. :)

ashjoy 06-27-2013 11:18 AM

Thanks:)

tessaduck 06-27-2013 12:59 PM

29. Stalking, ready for the shopping list. Any excuse to go shopping is a good one...

muscrat 06-27-2013 01:07 PM

What shopping list? Is this just a list of what we will need for all projects?

muscrat 06-27-2013 03:09 PM

Does anyone really get dirty? LOL I want to see pictures if they do!

fionna51 06-27-2013 05:21 PM

You should see the desks after a couple of days!

How long does this run? A week??

Margscardcrazy 06-27-2013 09:21 PM

Mmmmmmm, I'm not saying whether I'm going to do any cards or not, that way if I do manage a few, or many, it will be a nice surprise for me but I wont feel presured. :( I'm still disapointed about VSN and my total failure to produce one card. :cry: I had some brilliant ideas. :idea: which is a bit like the fish that got away!!

Cheers

Yep, seven days with about 7 challenges a day. Can make for an uber-messy desk!

Sounds interesting!! LOL

tessaduck 06-29-2013 11:04 AM

27. Time to clean off my desk.

fionna51 06-29-2013 06:09 PM

Aww, Brenda, that's no fun!

Or are you saying that it will take you 27 days to get it cleaned off?

I think mine would! :rolleyes:
