The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

Hi all!!!! Welcome to Scrap and Stamp Saturday challenges!! We are Alex and Melissa, two passionate scrapbookers and stampers! We are so very excited to be starting this site and really hope that you will become a regular follower and challenge participant!!! As both avid scrapbookers AND stampers, we decided that it was time to have a site that brought these two creative mediums together and inspire creativity! Every other week on Saturday mornings there will be a new challenge listed with a different theme or project - the one thing that will always be a constant: both stamping AND scrapbooking MUST be included!! We have also lined up some fabulous sponsors who have graciously agreed to host their chosen challenge week and provide the prizes to some lucky winner! We are searching for EIGHT enthusiastic, talented scrapbookers and stampers who desire to share their creativity with others! International applicants are welcome to apply. Now for the details:



(1) Each DT applicant MUST have an active blog and make regular posts
(2) Submit five projects with the following themes:

- One 12x12 layout about yourself (this will help us get to know you better!)
- Project with Vacation theme
- Project with Summer theme
- Project with Special Moments theme
- Project with a Monochromatic theme

You can do any type of project you want, but keep in mind that each of the five submissions MUST clearly have both scrapbooking and stamping incorporated into it. Those that do not will not be considered. Be creative - show us what you've got!!!!

(3) Any prior DT experience and current DT experience should be included in submission
(4) Full name, geographic location, blog address, and any galleries where you upload your work
(5) A paragraph explaining why you want to be a part of the Scrap and Stamp Design Team

***All DT submissions should be emailed to and be received by Melissa and Alex no later than midnight, 15 May 2009. Those chosen will be notified no later than Saturday, 23 May. The first challenge will be held on 6 June, with all DT projects due in by midnight PST on the 4th.***


(1) Have submitted projects to us by Thursday at midnight PST prior to the challenge Saturday
(2) Arrange ahead of time if you have something scheduled that will prohibit you from participating in a given challenge. We know life happens! However, if you fail to notify us and miss two postings, you will be dropped from the team as it would be unfair to the rest of the team who IS participating
(3) Have your project and write-up for the challenge uploaded and posted on your blog by 10am EST. Your post should include links to the site as well as to your fellow DT members
(4) List the DT team on your blog on your sidebar and display the DT site blinkie


(1) You will receive a DT site blinkie to display on your blog
(2) The site will clearly display your name and a link to your blog
(3) The chance to share your creativity with others
(4) Meet new people and share ideas
(5) No compensation at this time except what our sponsors provide in the way of advertising their product. Any such provision will be mailed to the DT member well in advance of that challenge week.

We are very excited about this new endeavor and really hope that everyone who is interested will apply!!! We want a diverse team of talent, and we know you are out there!!!!
