NEW CALL: Gauche Alchemy Non-Traditional Scrapping Challenge

Deadline: Friday, June 12, 2009

Gauche Alchemy looking for "average" scrappers!

Okay, so no one is particularly thrilled to be "average," but put that aside and hear me out.

One piece of feedback that we hear sometimes is that folks love our kits but aren't sure what to do with them. We use a bunch of "non-traditional" supplies, and we understand that this can be intimidating for some people. Or maybe some people think they aren't "creative" or "artsy" enough.

Are you one of these people? Then we're looking for YOU!

As counter-intuitive as it might seem, I'm looking for people who like, but feel intimidated by, our kits. If "intimidated" is too strong a word, let's just say I'm looking for someone who wants to learn how to incorporate more non-traditional supplies.

We're all about upcycling, and so by extension, SAVING THE EARTH! :) It's a skill well worth learning, especially in the name of ART!

So here's what you do:

Send me your favorite layouts - 2 or 3 will do. Deadline is FRIDAY, JUNE 12 at midnight (I won't be too particular - just make sure it's in my inbox when I wake up on Saturday). E-MAIL ADDRESS: OR

I'll be in touch with you if you're selected - we'll be sending you some freebies and giving you some guidance.
Can't WAIT to see your work - please submit if the above describes YOU.

International entries are welcomed!
