** Design Team Call **

{Click here for our current challenge}

We sadly said goodbye to two of our design team girls this month when their current terms came to an end. However, the good news is that we are looking for someone new to join our team and fortnightly challenges!

If you are interested in applying for the team, enjoy a challenge and of course using lots of gorgeous ribbons, laces, trim, etc., on your projects (as supplied by our Ribbon Reel shop), then check out the requirements below and send us your entry.

Good Luck Everyone!

  2. You must create at least one card or project every fortnight for our Monday fortnightly challenges!
