Challenge 254 - New + Introducing New Design Team Members

 Hello Friends of Time Out,

Welcome back after our short end of year break! We are here with our NEW challenge -where we challenge you to be NEW- and with our NEW DT members! :) We are sadly saying goodbye to our good friend Elizabeth who has been a fantastic addition to the team... But who we will now keep meeting around blogland in other circles. Thank you for all you have done for Time Out, Elizabeth!

We have two wonderful ladies joining us:


from GG Card Creations



from Moments of Crafting

Both Greta and Helen have been regular players and long time supporters of Time Out for several years already. Their amazing work is surely familiar to most of you not only from their own blogs but from many challenges too... and now we couldn't be happier that they are part of the Time Out Design Team! We look forward creating alongside Greta and Helen and being inspired by their talent. 

Now, the challenge... Very appropriately for the New Year and with the new DT members and all... We also challenge you to be NEW. You could use new products, play with a new technique, work around the theme New (like New baby or New Year)... Many possibilities here! 

Our wonderful sponsor is Gina K. They're generously offering a $25.00 store credit which must be used within 90 days.

We are joined by Cynthia Olheiser of Stampin' In Alaska and winner of Time Out #251 as Guest Designer. Cynthia is a very talented crafter and frequent player at Time Out. Here is a little bit about Cynthia in her own words:

"Hi! My name is Cynthia and I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I have been crafting since I was young to include knitting, sewing and macramé. I started my paper crafting journey with scrapbooking then turned to cards. I enjoy trying different stamping techniques but I would say my style is mostly clean and simple.
Thank you to Time Out for the opportunity to share my inspiration with you this week."

You can view and get the details about Cynthia's card on her blog HERE.

And now for some inspiration from our design team!

Fabulous inspiration from everyone, I'm sure you agree! Now it's your time to Take Time Out and Craft! This challenge runs until 5 pm GMT Wed 17th of January. Before linking up below, please check out How to Play from our sidebar. At Time Out we only allow 5 challenges combined, one of them being ours. Thank you and Happy Crafting!
