W2CB: DT Announcement!

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here to announce that we are looking for a few crafty friends to join our W2CB Inspiration Team.  :)

2018 I-Team Information

I-Teamers are responsible for making a card/project for each quote-inspired monthly challenge, starting with the January/February Challenge. And, as you know, we are equal opportunity crafters when it comes to making our cards/projects.

  • Team members receive all twelve of the 2018 quotes prior to the start of the 2018 calendar year.
  • Any type of project is welcome. While most of the team typically makes cards, projects are not limited to cards. They can range from a bookmark or tag to a multi-media framed canvas. 
  • Any products/tools can be used.
  • Any and all styles all welcome, from CAS to highly ornamental vintage/Victorian. 
  • I-Teamers feature their projects for each new W2CB challenge on their blogs on the day that the challenge posts (the second Wednesday of each month).

Application Requirements

To apply, please e-mail  the following -- using DT Search in the subject line -- to cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com by November 15.

  • A quote that could serve as the inspiration for a monthly W2CB challenge,
  • A new card/project inspired by your chosen quote, and
  • Your blog's URL/link. 

If you love words and crafting, ours is the challenge blog for you. We hope you'll consider joining us for a year of creative fun in 2018!

W2CB #46 - Autumn

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here... with a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge for the second Wednesday of the month.

Our words for this challenge come to us from Albert Camus.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. 


There are so many ways to interpret these words.  Leaves, flowers, fall colors, the fall season, and fall holidays come to mind.

We can't wait to see how this quote inspires you. Link up a project or card in the W2CB Gallery for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the online merchant of your choice.

See you in the gallery!

And the W2CB Winner Is....

... Kathy Tanner, who created this adorable thank you card for a special teacher! We just fell in love with Kathy's beautifully-colored Thankful Lucy and her card's wonderful CAS design.


Congratulations, Kathy! Please e-mail me at cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com to make prize arrangements.  :)

Big thanks to all who played along. We'll be back next Wednesday with a new word-inspired challenge. See you then!
