Geometrics!

What is your favorite shape and how do you like to use it in your paper crafting?  For me, a very linear gal, shapes with straight lines arranged in an orderly and symmetrical pattern are the way to go! We at Heart 2 Heart Challenges will love seeing your geometrical projects, be it a card, layout or a 3-D object.  We only ask that you use at least one Close to My Heart product.  Best news--you have until June 30 to link your project!

Now here are the design team projects with links to individual blogs...hoping you find inspiration!









Please leave a comment and add your project below!  Thanks for joining our first June challenge, Geometrics!

Design Team Call

It is time to recruit some new talent and fresh faces to our Heart2Heart Design Team for the final half of 2019!  If you love Heart 2 Heart Challenges and want to share your love of creating with Close To My Heart, then consider applying for our Design Team!  If selected, your term will be from July through December 2019.  If you’re still interested after reading through the requirements, send your application to h2hchallenges@gmail.com.  



We will continue to have TWO Design Teams! The teams will both have 4 month terms but will split the responsibilities with one team inspiring us one week and the other team inspiring us the next. This allows the teams members to get a little "break" and gives them additional time to get their artwork ready for their week's challenge.

If you would like to be considered for one of the teams, here is the application process:
*Email h2hchallenges@gmail.com with your name, location, blog address, email address and a little bio about you. Be sure to tell me why you want to be a part of the team and how long you have been a CTMH consultant. Also, we’d like to know where you live because we are looking for geographic diversity too.

*If you are currently serving on a design team or have in the past, tell us about that experience.  Please include a link to the challenge blog(s).

* You MUST know how to write and schedule/publish a post on Blogger.  (We can help you learn if you don't already know how.) Each DT member will have a couple of weeks (scattered throughout your term) in which you are responsible for hosting/writing the Monday challenge post. Don't worry - the team will be around to help out with this as well but please only apply if you are comfortable blogging.

*You must be able to join our DT Facebook group.  We use this group as the most effective means of communication and where you post your artwork when you're not hosting.

* You must send photos of three of your pieces of artwork. DO NOT send me a link to your blog to look at your artwork there - I want you to pick what you consider three of your best and include them with the application.

ALL applications must be received by June 5.  This is a very quick turnaround time, but you will need time to start creating for January 1!  We will make the selection of the new team members with notification sent out no later than June 10.  

Here are some more things to keep in mind about a position on the DT.  You are committing to:
*Participate in a challenge every other week (each of your team's weeks) and have your artwork for each challenge posted to the DT Facebook Group the Saturday before the challenge begins.
*Make an effort to post your artwork on any other boards/galleries you belong to and advertise our challenge blog whenever and wherever you can so we can continually grow in numbers of participants. We currently have an H2H page on Facebook that I would like DT members to join but this is optional.  (The Facebook DT group is required.)
*Participate in any extra programs that we may decide upon as a team. You are also expected to weigh in on your choices of winners in monthly awards (Top Ten) by the deadline.
*Join a Facebook Group set up specifically for team members.
*Visit the blogs of the challenge participants and leave comments.
*Serve as H2H blog hostess about once every other month.  (You must know how to use Blogger to do this.)
*Your term would be Jan-April 2019 with an option to renew at the end of your term if mutually agreeable.
*Possibly offer a small prize at least once during your term.

What you get in return:
* Commitment to producing artwork at least once every 2 weeks which gives you an opportunity to create on a regular basis!
* Opportunities to stretch yourself creatively with support from a great team!
* Increased blog traffic which will hopefully lead to an increase in your business!
* Fun and fellowship with the entire team and a chance to meet new consultants and CTMH fans!

I think that about wraps it up. What are you waiting for? Send in your application today!! (Any questions can be directed to me at h2hchallenges@gmail.com.)  Thanks!
