Calling All Crafters!!!

It is that time again and we are gearing up to add 8 new members to our DT! Below is a description of our challenge blog, the DT requirements, and submission guidelines. If you have any questions feel free to email us at If you are currently a DT member, you will be getting an email from us in the next few days about staying on with the DT! If you are a DT member who has not submitted for awhile, please feel free to apply for the current DT call!

Whimsical Scraps and Bugs DT Call

Whimsical Scraps and Bugs is a challenge site built solely around the awesome love we have for our Cricuts! We are currently looking for 8 amazing crafters to join our DT team and create projects based on our bi-monthly challenges.

The requirements to become a DT member are that you must own a Cricut Personal Electronic Cutting Machine. As well, if you also own a Cuttlebug that would be beneficial as we may feature some embossing in our challenges from time to time, however if you do not own a Cuttlebug that is okay and please still apply! It is not a deal breaker! We do expect that those chosen for the DT participate in the challenges that are issued every two weeks and turn their projects in on time as well. We do understand that life does sometimes happen and you will be allowed to miss one project if something unexpected comes up during your DT term. Communication is key and we would like to have members who are actively involved on our site and spread the word about Whimsical Scraps and Bugs to other sites as well. The DT term will run for three months and you will be required to become a member of the Cricut Message Board if you are not already. This is a wonderful online forum and a great way to communicate with fellow Cricut crafters!

To apply please email the following to (subject DT CALL):
* send 3 submissions of your best work – 1 must be a layout, 1 must be a card, & the 3rd is your choice.
* a link to your blog, if you have one, and any message boards you post on.
* list of any DTs you are currently on and as a list of your publications, if any.
* list of all Cricut cartridges you own
* a short paragraph about yourself – where you live, what you like to do for fun, how you became a crafter, just tell us a bit about yourself!

While there is currently not any compensation for DT members, we do hope to bring on some sponsors in the coming months as well as award some prizes now and then! Also, international scrappers are welcome and encouraged to apply!

All DT submissions must be turned in via email no later than Wednesday, May 27th at midnight. The new DT members will be announced on our blog June 1st! If you have any questions, please feel free to email those to as well.

Thanks so much ahead of time to everyone that chooses to apply for our DT call - we understand and appreciate all the hard work and dedication each and every one of you put into your projects! Happy Scrapping!
