July Challenge Reminder - Anything Goes & DT Call!

Hello, and welcome back to the Christmas Craft Creations challenge for July!
Before I get to the challenge, I just want to quickly remind you that we're having a Design Team Call to fill out some spaces in our team. If you love crafting and want to make Christmas designs all year round you might be the right fit for the team! 
The requirements for joining the team are:
- You commit to making one Christmas project a month following the predetermined theme
- You will upload your project to the dedicated DT blog promptly (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 promptly 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, or click the email link in the sidebar, 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 of each month, reminder team on the 4th Wednesday. Please note that the stated preference does not guarantee an invitation to that particular team)
- Mention any teams you are currently designing for or have previously designed for (prior experience is not an essential requirement)
- Links to your blog and any crafting social media pages you may have (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest...)
- Examples of three of your best projects (preferably Christmas projects, but this is mostly to get an idea of your work)
The deadline for application is 6th August. Please make sure you have followed the application instructions thoroughly. Not following the instructions will reduce your chances of joining the team. I will endeavour to reply promptly to acknowledge all applications, but please do be patient with me as life can be hectic at times!

We can't wait to see your applications and look forward to inviting you to the team!
Whilst the month is coming to a close, it is still Christmas in July and our theme is Anything Goes - as long as your focus has Christmas in mind, you can make absolutely anything! If you missed our launch of the challenge you can find inspiration from our wonderful launch team here. And of course there's even more beautiful inspiration to share with you today from our talented reminder team.
In the spirit of Christmas in July, we have some lovely prizes up for grabs. In no particular order, they are:
Prize 1
7Gypsies - Kids Clear Stamp (preloved) and Family Clear Stamp (preloved), donated by Angela

Prize 2
Mystery prize pack, donated by Charlotte (UK/EU only)
Prize 3
Woodware Craft Creations - Bird Post, donated by Michelle
Prize 4
SU Scenic Garden stamp set, donated by Tammy
Prize 5
Lisa Horton - Large Framed Traditional Rose Die (contains 3 dies), donated by Angela
The prize winners will be picked randomly from among those entrants who have followed all the rules, which are in the sidebar if you need a refresher. 

If you have a preference as to which prize you'd like (or if there are any you definitely don't want) please leave a comment below letting me know, and I will do my best to keep those preferences in mind when drawing winners. 

For an extra prize entry, invite a friend to join the challenge! If your friend leaves a comment below letting us know who invited them (your name), then you and your friend will both get an additional entry to the prize draw. 

First, we still have Lynda of LoopyLooCards joining us as a Guest Designer this month! Lynda was the winner of the May challenge. Here is the lovely card she made:

And here is the inspiration from the reminder team:
