DT Call...Are you up for the challenge?

The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up has almost reached our six months mark and we are looking for a few more people to join our dynamic Design Team.


  1. Do you currently have an active blog?
  2. Do you love to create Christmas and other holiday cards?
  3. Are you comfortable working with digital images, digital sentiments and digital papers?
  4. Do you love to have fun and hang out with like-minded crafters (i.e., people who are easy-going, friendly, caring, open minded, supportive, etc.)?
  5. Do you love to create for the sake of creating and to help inspire others?
  6. Can you take good clean/clear pictures of your work?
  7. Can you meet a deadline?
 If you answered yes to the above questions, then you should keep reading to find out what else you need to do in order to apply for a spot on The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up Design Team

We’re looking for a few enthusiastic, dedicated, dependable, team-oriented, designers to join us.  

 Prior Design Team experience not required.

What do you need to do?
First of all, you must have a blog that you keep current. 

Next, send us an email to serve as your DT Application.  It must include the following information:
  1. Your name and blog address.
  2. How you would describe your style (we’re looking for all different styles).
  3. Why you want to work with us and why you think you’d be a good fit with The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.
  4.  Let us know what your experience is working within a design team.  If you don’t have any DT experience, that is okay too!
  5. Please attach three (3) different Christmas cards showcasing your talent (don’t worry, it doesn’t matter how new you are to card making).  These projects can be pre-existing cards.  However, we’d like one (1) of those cards to showcase you using digital papers since you will be using digital papers on ALL the cards you create as part of this team.  Additionally, all of the cards you choose to share with us need to feature a digital image that you have coloured in yourself since you will be colouring in sponsor's images each month as well.  If you have never used a digital paper before but are willing to do so should you be chosen to work on the team, then you can grab a freebie HERE.  Please note that you can use digital papers the same way you use digital images--you can easily resize the paper and then print it out and cut it out to attach to your card base.  Using digital papers does not mean that we are expecting a digital card--although digital cards are welcome (but they must be cards not other items like tags, layouts etc.)
  6. Any other relevant information you’d like to share.
What do you get?
We are NOT looking for people who are into design teams just to grab every digi they can; or, for people whose sole mission is to promote themselves.  If that is you, then I’m afraid you just won’t be a good fit with us.  HOWEVER, if you love to have fun, enjoy colouring digital images, are willing to work with digital papers, and want to help inspire your fellow Design Team members along with our readers, then this is the place for you!  And of course, each month you'll have the opportunity to work with sponsor's images and be given some digital papers to work with.  Plus, you might receive some other goodies along the just never know!

Other Details…
  1. Terms are for six months long (with an option to extend if mutually agreeable).  Your first official card and post will be due in August.
  2. You will be assigned to one of two teams--the Sleigh Belles, whose cards are showcased at the start of the challenge, or the Merry Maidens whose cards are showcased during the midway.  On average you will need to create 1 project a month. 
  3. You may be asked to participate in special events, i.e. blog hops, etc. but these will be planned and discussed well in advance.
  4. All group communication and file uploading will take place on a special blog for DT Members so you will need to become comfortable working within the Blogger environment.  It is a private group and only The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up DT members will have access to it. 

So, are you up for the challenge?  

If you are seriously interested in becoming a member of our team AND can meet the obligations outlined above, please send us an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program).  Please put "12 MoC DT Application" in the subject line.  Please submit your application by July 20th.  This will allow us time to get new members set up on the DT blog and them set up for their first official challenge in July.

For more information regarding how the link up began, please check out the Introductions tab at the top of the page.  To find out more details on how the link up works, please check out the Challenge Details tab.

Interested in earning a FREE digital paper? 

If any of you, would like to advertise the DT call for us on your own individual blog we would sincerely appreciate the shout out and there is a free digital paper up for grabs if you do.  Just make sure that you come back and let us know by leaving a link to blog in a comment on this post.  You can either grab the badge at the top of the page which is 450 px wide or this smaller one that it is 250 px wide:

If you create an actual post letting your readers know about our DT Call, your name will be put into a draw for one of six mini paper sets.  If your name is drawn, you will get to choose one set from the choices offered below.  One set will be given out for every five people who create a post on their blog announcing the DT Call.  Those are pretty good odds for winning, wouldn't you say?!  If you do this, please be sure to leave a comment with the link to your post.

In closing, both Monica and I would just like to say, thank you so much for your interest in applying for our design team!  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing all of your creations! We can’t wait to see who will be joining our incredible group!
