- You must be willing to commit to making one Christmas project a month following the predetermined theme
- You must be willing to upload your project to the dedicated DT blog in a timely manner (we also have a DT group on Facebook)
- You commit to commenting on a selection of the entries to the challenge each month 
- You commit to voting on top picks in a timely manner following the instructions provided
- You have a blog and preferably craft social media accounts such as Instagram (note: I will consider applicants that don't have a blog but do have an instagram account in special cases)
- You commit to promoting our challenge (e.g. in Facebook groups, instagram, etc.)

To apply please send an email to thejoyfulsoulcreates@gmail.com, or click the email link in the side bar, with the subject "CCC DT Call - [Your Name]" and include the following information:
- Your name and a brief bio (e.g. how long you've been crafting, a note on your style) 
- Your team preference (launch team posts on the 2nd Wednesday each month, reminder team on the 4th Wednesday - please note that the stated preference does not guarantee invitation to that particular team)
- Mention any teams you are currently designing for or have previously designed for (prior experience is not a requirement)
- Links to your blog and any crafting social media pages you may have (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest...)

And now, without further ado... This month our theme is Washi Tape - please make sure the theme is very clear in your project.
