Default IT's That TIME again....the Winter DT Search is ON!

You are Invited to a


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. )

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.
I missed this place!
