Challenge # 166 - Put A Pin In It

The Corrosive Challenge is excited to announce four new team members:  Carla, Ruza, AJ and Julie.  They all had fantastic projects for our Design Team call, and will be adding more diversity and talent to the team.  Be sure to check out their blogs and leave them some love!

We are also very pleased to welcome a brand new Sponsor A and T Digital Designs home of 
 the Emerald Faeries Stamps.   Anita has not only generously offer several images to the DT for use in this challenge, but she is providing a fabulous prize of 3 digis from her shop for our winner!

Our new challenge this fortnight is to use hat, push, or safety pins AND/OR this "Pinspirational" photo:

We found this on Pinterest, isn't it an amazing project?!  And crafter Ronda graciously granted us permission to use her fabulous creation for our challenge!  Pinterest is a fabulous website, but it can be dangerous to productivity!  Lol.

Here's what our talented design team, new and old, came up with:


We are so looking forward to some fabulous projects.  Be sure to "stick it to us"!  Join us tomorrow for our Monday winner and Top 3 post!

Challenge #165 - Out with the Old

Happy New Year!  The Corrosive Challenge is back and ready to take on 2013!  We have some changes... A new look for the blog!  A new sponsor and prize for EVERY challenge!  Yup, every fortnight you'll see not only a new challenge, but a new sponsor and a new prize for one lucky random participant as well.  We are retiring our guest designer position, but will be selecting a Top 3.  These crafters will get to have their creations featured on the blog in our separate Monday winners' post!  How fabulous is that?!?!

Out with the old, I say....  And in with the new- we will be announcing our new design team members on January 20th!

And that brings us to our first challenge of the year!  Please welcome our sponsor, Simply Betty Stamps!

Here's a little about the company in owner Betty's own words:

"Simply Betty Stamps was born around the same time my little guy was born.  Having had to close down my actual scrapbook and rubber stamp store due to his early arrival I was stuck at home with nothing to do.  I started blogging and learned about digis, and thought... hey I can draw!  I wanted to work, but didn't want to do the 9-5 nor leave my baby, so...Simply Betty Stamps came about.  I have tend to put out what is close to me and my heart, my kids!  My teens as well as my Bettys and Judes are inspired by my kids shenanigans and that of my own!  I hope to inspire as well as learn from others in this crafty community."

Betty has generously offered our winner a $15 gift voucher to her online shop!  You can find all her fun and funky images HERE!  Whether you love digis, rubber, or clear stamps, Betty has an eclectic mix that's sure to please the "quirk in you"!

Our challenge this fortnight is "Out with the Old".  Use up some of those items you've got in your stash, the older the better!  Don't forget to tell us what you used in your post.

Let's see what the design team has created to ring in the new year:

Stash: card stock and metal corner


Stash: everything except buttons

Stash: skull & crossbones designer paper

Stash: paper, ink, and ribbon

Stash: ribbon and rhinestones
