* DT call *

Hello to all you creative friends! 
Do you create awesome projects and wish you had somewhere to show off your amazing talent? Well, if you do then we want YOU to join our team!

We’re looking for 3 new DT members! 

What are we looking for? 
- Creative people from all over the world that make pretty paper projects: we love scrapbookers, art journalers, tag-ers, ATC-ers, card makers, altered artists. You make them all? Good! You make only one kind of paper craft? Good! As long as you love to play with paper, glue and all the other pretty stuff and like to tell people about it, you’re good! :)
- We need people that can submit all projects ON TIME. Although you’re welcome to apply if you are already on other design teams, please make sure that you’re able to commit to being on time and in communication with the team.
**Previous DT experience is not required!**
- We have a Facebook group for the DT, so you need to have a Facebook account to stay in communication with us. 
- You need to know English at a quite good level: we are an Italian based blog with international DT and readers, so you need to write post and comment in English.

What we ask for:
- DT term is 6 months to begin in February 2015. Your assignment requirement will be 1-2 projects a month. Right now we are focused on bringing monthly challenges to our readers (1 project a month). In the future you would be responsible for 2 projects a month because we wanna grow up with the blog and bring some extra inspiration to our lovely readers (in your second post you can write whatever you want: step by step project, speak about a scrapbooking trend, reviewing a product, make a wishlist...)
- You must be able to take quality pictures and write up a short post about your projects. 
- You must comment on challenge entries.
- During your term you will decide one challenge: we will assign you a month and it will be your duty to choose both pop and rock song for the challenge and send a little prize to the winner.

What you get:
- Your name and blog will be put on SIWAS blog and your projects will be shared on our FB page.
-  The opportunity to work with lovely and supportive people and improve your scrapbook by sharing ideas with others.

If you’re ready to apply, please send the following information to Melania at (Please put "SIWAS DT call" on email object.)

Any other sites/gallery where you show off your work:
Are you currently on other creative teams? If yes, where?

Are you applying for rock or pop DT?
Please include any links or pictures of specific projects you don’t want us to miss! :D

We can’t wait to hear from YOU! You have until December 31st to apply!

December challenges: Destiny's Child and Queen

Hello everybody! 

Here is all ready the last challenge of 2014.. In a month full of holidays, Christmas trees and Jingle bells it has to be a Christmas challenge of course... So I have chosen for 2 songs who have a link with this theme. 

The first song you can use is our pop song:
Destiny's child: Winter Paradise. 
A lovely happy song I think.

Here is the video with the cover: 

And here are the lyrics.

This is what the Pop girls made with their song:

Well it was easy what I should use from the song, lol, I choose the word "Christmas" on my page, on the photo my boy a few years ago, decorating the tree. 

I made a card using part of the text "Christmas day is here" as sentiment. Check out my blog for other details

The rock song you can use this month is by I think the best rock band ever:
Queen: Thank God it's Christmas

This is the cover:

The video:

And here are the lyrics

This is what the Rock chicks made of it...


I used the song to make a Layout of me with my men Last Christmas. I used the songtekst for journaling.


I used some of the lyrics from the song for one of my journaling cards ...such a great song to use for this challenge!!!
Check out my blog for close-up of this page:


I chose to play with the numbers to the title of this Lo! The photos are of last Christmas and they seemed perfect for this challenge Christmas !!!


I used the song to make a Layout of me with my cat last Christmas.


Good evening everyone!
I was inspired by the word "Christmas" !!!!
Here's my advent calendar! Hope you like!
Notteeeeee !!

Inspired already to make a wonderful LO, card, Art Journal Page or altered item? You can enter our challenge before 28 December 2014. (Eastern daylight time) The winner of this month gets a very nice 'WINTER' RAK. Good Luck!

November Challenge- Wham and The Cure

Hi All, 
This month it is Karen bringing you the new challenges for the month.
both of my choices are 80s favorites of mine!!

So the POP choice for the month is

Wham- Wake me Up before you Go Go


Wham was one of my favorite groups in the 80's I could sing every song of them and my room was full of posters from the boys :-)  For my page I used the lyric; you make the sun shine brighter , and that's what my boy does every day :-)

Hello everybody, I'm a new DT member, I'm really nice to meet you and I'm really happy to join this great group! I hope you will love my works! Thanks again Melania for this great opportunity.
For my first layout as SIWAS DT I used the song as inspiration for my journal: I handwrote part of the lyrics "you put the boomboom into my heart, you send my soul sky high"  under my husband picture. Please visit my blog if you'd love to see some close-ups.

and the Rock choice for the month is

Love Cats by the Cure
 and this is the single Cover that maybe could give you some inspiration


I got this time inspired by the title of this song. I made a card with a die of 2 cats. I also used the circle of the cover.


I used the title of the song to do a cat page for my scrapbook album ...come check out my blog if you want to see close-ups:


This song ispired me to create this card with 2 cats in love!


Here I am with a giftbag for "Trick or Treat" with a black kitten! 
The black cat is just a witch!!!! See you soon!

think of the cats that "bite and scratch and scream all night" made ​​me think of a picture of last Halloween ... I hope you like it !!!

And the winner is....
