Challenge 11 - Summer and Brand New Sponsor

Hi, Everyone

Hoping you having a fab Sunday...sorry for the challenge post to be a wee bit late.

We have a Brand New challenge for you and to go with the gorgeous weather we have been experiencing the last few weeks in the UK our theme is SUMMER, so we would like to see all your RED HOT SUMMER projects!

Today we are happy to announce a Brand New Sponsor -

Shop Bio

South African crafters are new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010 – Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) .  In May 2012, Margy Kieser took over ownership of DS4J, and there are now two South African artists who contribute to the more than 600 images available. Margy has taken the store to new heights and the store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. In addition, one of our own South African rubber stamp companies granted us permission for one range of rubber stamps to be converted into digistamp images. The store has PAYPAL, PAYFAST (South African) and EFT (South African) facilities. Digistamps4Joy offers a freebie on the first Friday of every month, and holds regular bi-weekly card challenges on our blog ( ) that draw entries from many international card makers.
We (DS4J) are also active on Facebook ( and Paper Craft Planet (


Our Fabulous sponsors for this challenge are 
Digistamps 4joy who are offering 5 images from their store. 

We also have a Guest Designer this week . 
The fabulous Annerieke from Digistamps4joy.

Here's Annerieke's Bio
I'm Annerieke and I live in the Netherlands. Almost 30 years ago I started to make cards, first Christmas  cards only and then for birthdays too. Nowadays I make cards, other creations and recently I also love working with stamps and ink. Besides making cards I like knitting, walking, gardening and reading.

On my blog you can find my creations.

And here's Lydia's final project as Guest Designer for July.

Our second sponsor for this week is Limited Run Stamps and they were generous enough to sponsor some images for the DT to work with too...

So lets move on to the lovely inspiration the rest of the DT came up with;

Firts up is the Digi's from DigiStamps4Joy -

Now it's your turn to show us your projects....

Thank you for taking time to visit our Challenge, and hope to see you all soon...

DT CALL...This Post will Stay on Top!



Hobbycutz Challenge Current DT term is nearing an end and I am looking to recruit some additional design team members, to go along with a few Changes I will be impleting...

Hello crafty people!
I am looking for 10 New members to add to my design team. If you are enthusiastic crafter, then I want to add you to the team! No experience necessary. 

The rules are as follows:
-     You must have an active blog and be able to use sponsored items.
-     The Current Hobbycutz Design Team consist of 7 DT members and myself - I am looking to split that team in half and then add a few new members to work with the old team.
-    So I will have the current Hobbycutz Design Team who will mainly showcase Hobbycutz products...Then I am looking to recruit 5 members to each team - who will be the digi/stamp team - I expect the digi/stamp team to showcase all images sponsored by external sponsors and digi companies, but don't worry you are definitely allowed to incorporate the laser cuts with them - so that means to be able to work with all kinds of Laser cut items, also being able to decorate 3D items from time to time, but your welcome to incorporate your own style to this, stamps or whatever your favourite items might be.
-    The DT term will run for 6 months and will end round about 16 March, which during this time I will need each DT member to submit a project every two weeks before the deadline...which is a Thursday evening before the New Challenge starts, following and adhering to the Challenge set for that week and also using sponsored images, stamp, products etc, whatever the case may be.

-     You must comment on entries. You will be assigned 2 ending numbers to comment on.
-    If you think it is something you interested in just add your name...That's ALL
-     In order to apply for the DT, all you need to do is leave your link with inlinkz below. I will be looking at several posts to spot your style and commitment to postings.
-    You’ll be expected to make a card/project every other week and upload it by the Thursday before the new challenge starts (so, usually 2 project a month).
-    And most importantly, we want you to have FUN!  Oh, and if you would like to become a follower of our blog, regardless if your interested in running for DT or Not, we will appreciate it very much and please spread the word, and help us to find the best DT Team in BLOGLAND!!!
So if you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know...

If you have questions, you can contact me at hobbycutz (at)

Thanks Kobie
