Hi All.

I’m looking for 5 members to be part of the next Eat Cake Graphics Design Team.

Here are the particulars…
REQUIREMENTS

  1. The ability to either take good quality photos OR if you can’t take photos I will need the projects so I can photograph them
  2. Prefer that you have a blog or belong to some sort of stamping forum so that you can post your monthly projects
  3. Promote Eat Cake Graphics Design Team (I can provide a little graphic badge for your blog)
  4. You’d be signing up for a 4 month commitment

WHAT YOU GET

  1. A $30 a month credit towards Eat Cake Graphics rubber stamps (not good towards supplies or quilt patterns)
  2. Free shipping once a month

WHAT I’D LIKE EACH MONTH

  1. 2 to 3 projects – either cards or other types of projects, I’m pretty open. I’d prefer a mix of simple and a bit more complex.
  2. You must use an Eat Cake Graphics image as the main part of your project. I don’t mind if you use other stamps in your projects, but the purpose of this Design Team is to promote Eat Cake Graphics’ stamps.

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN, PLEASE SEND ME (HOLLY)…

  1. An email with your name and a little bit about yourself
  2. A link to your blog if you have one
  3. Pictures of at least three projects you’ve created

The deadline for submission is Sunday, October 10th.
I’ll announce the team the week of October 11th.

Thanks so very much. I look forward to hearing from you.

halloween-images-banner Hi everyone.
I thought I’d let you know I’ve just added a bunch of Halloween images, a few Thanksgiving and the beginnings of some new winter images to Eat Cake Graphic’s website.

You can find them under the “What’s New” category.

Enjoy!

georgia-witch-smHalloween is fast approaching! Can you believe it’s almost October already!

Georgia‘s gettin’ ready! She used bright orange, olive green and black and white polka dots for a very cheerful card. I love how she tilted the main image and framed it in orange.

Oh poor witchy – that’ll teach her to watch where she’s going!

owh-birthdayOperation Write Home (OWH) is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong!

During the month of September they are having a “birthday bash” – with prizes and everything! On September 12 they’ll be hosting some great challenges via their Stars and Stamps blog. Eat Cake Graphics is adding a few “For the Brave” stamps (mounted versions) to OWH prize pot for their end of September drawing! So please visit their website and read the basic guidelines.

A few important details collected from their website:

  • Glitter is NOT allowed (it’s a safety hazard to our heroes)
  • Handmade cards only
  • A2 sized cards 5.5″ x 4.25″ are preferred but not mandatory
  • “Operation Write Home” needs to be on the backs of your cards—it can be stamped, handwritten, or printed on labels. Only cards that are marked with “Operation Write Home” on the backs are eligible for the prize drawings.
  • Include a packing slip (click for a downloadable PDF) inside your box or envelope, and mail them to any of their shippers listed on the Mailroom page.
  • In your package, you can also include notes written to a deployed service member.

You don’t have to submit cards to Eat Cake Graphics, only to Operation Write Home following their guidelines.

Christy hand-crafed this journal using chipboard coasters – I think this is way more fun than using them for drinks!

The coasters were painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint and set aside to dry. The fence and Penny were stamped, colored with Copics, and cut out.  Once the coasters were dry the Pine Tree was stamped directly on the coaster that was being used for the front cover.  She attached the fence and sat little Penny just perfectly on the top.  The title was cut out of a magazine.

She says, “this will be the perfect summer journal for my daughter to record all her favorite camping memories.” I couldn’t agree more!
