FYI

Good day my stamping friends! Wow I'm really impressed by all the teams that will be participating. I hope everyone is getting to know eachother! Loving all the team names! I know there is still a lot of questions flying around so I will try to answer as much as I can.
  • DT members who wanted to participate in this contest have formed groups amongst themselves but are NOT eligible to win the prizes. They will be participating for FUN only and not for the grand prize. haha. So no one be scared. haha.
  • Mary - ummm I thought there were two Marys, I think you can be on 'Little Star Shooters' and add Awilda on there. Please let Kimberly (leader) know. And then let me know if everything is ok.
  • If you are the leader of a group and cannot be a leader, please try to find someone in your group who can be the leader. The main task of the leader is to communicate with your design team and then send me the project at the end of the week. If no one wants to be the leader then I will have to re-assign you to groups with leaders.
  • Teams are not to post anything in the gallery, I will be doing that for everyone. Leaders will send me their projects by the deadline each week and I will be posting them in the gallery as needed. I think this will prevent any server crashes. LOL. 
  • In regards to comments (votes), please do not vote for your own team. 3 votes per person. So please select the 3 projects that you like the most.
  • There has to be at least 3 people in each team so in the case that some people in your group drops out, please let me know asap!
If any of you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Official team roster is not going up until Monday morning and the contest does not start until Wednesday morning so there's still some time left.

On another note, I know some of you are wondering where the Newsletter is, we had an unexpected delay but hopefully will be sending it out by this weekend. :)

Next in line, I totally love your ideas for the Creeper characters. And although I love the Jeepers Creepers name, I think that might be copyrighted. So I did pick some out from your comments and I will have you all vote on it in the poll on the right panel over there ----->

Ok that's all for today. That was a lot of info huh? Phew! I'll take leave now and show you one last little creeper girl for this week.

Today's question is: What would you like to see in the creeper series?

I know someone mentioned a mohawk, which is a fab idea! Let me know any suggestions you have for this new collection. I may even have some early digis for you!

I am so excited about the contest and these little teenie creepers. They are just too darn cute and they remind of my two kids that tweens. I would love to see a boy with his gameboy or a girl with her cell phone texting away. I guess that's the world as we know it today. Have a great day. Lisa G

Shaela said...

woohoo! so fun! Hmmm... I would love to see a "Lydia" creeper... like the Lydia from Beetlejuice, you know? That's immediately what I think of when I see these, lol!

Amy said...

Hi Marie! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see some Creepers with a definite vintage, Addams Family type vibe to the way they dress... heels, corsets, the whole nine yards. Oh and the wilder the hair, the better! :)

vicmbee said...

femke said...

greetings femke

Mrs Weyremaster said...

OMGosh isn't she cool. Really loving these Creepy Creations. Would be great to have some with musical instruments, boy with guitar, drummer, singers with mic. Then we could have our own little creepy rock concert, now that would be cool!

Have a great day all

I love the creepers! I am flattered that my idea of Creeper Cousins was chosen to be voted on! How about doing a boy creaper with an animal beanie, just like the girl one with her cat beanie, but have the boy wear a beenie with a fox on it, or something like that. And my son has the idea of doing one really goth... maybe add a studded belt to him, skinny jeans, hair over his face, gloves with the fingers sticking out and studs on the knuckles, maybe a leather jacket with a scrungy (is that a word?) tank underneath it. Alrighty! I'm off to work! OH, the goth creeper should also have facial piercings, and high top converse types of shoes (like what ebony wears)... my son just keeps spitting out the ideas! lol!

Lynda Nielsen said...

I'm so excited about this contest Marie, I can't even tell you ... but ohhhh so nervous too! ha ha....
These creepy kids are awesome, I love the new one too. How about a Creepy boy... maybe one that is wearing those great big baggy pants that have lots of zippers and chains hanging from them. Oyyyy have you seen those kids these days wearing that stuff???? Maybe he could have a skateboard tucked under his arm. =)

Can't wait to see what new ideas everyone comes up with.

Hugs
Lynda

~Rach said...

Thanks for clarifying the answers to some of the questions, I know we are all SUPER excited!

I would like to see a girl with short hair, not TOO punk, but just shorter hair. We short haired girls need love too, lol ;0)

~*Joni said...

Oh a mowhak would be fun! Coloring that in would be awesome. Love the names, very creative!

KymKreates said...

the creepers are soooo cool how about one sorta like the ultra violet character!!!! Another would be a mermaid or fairy creeper!!!!

Pryn said...

So excited for the contest to start! This is my first time participating in any online contest of any kind, so I am nervous, but I love my team members and I am amped!!!!

Awesome new image love the camos and headphones! I would love to see some fishnets with high top Converse like tennis shoes and pigtails...

Pryn said...

I forgot to add wearing a mini and a long sleeve layered shirt that tucks over the thumb :)

momofsixkids said...

I just love the new teenie creepers series you are starting. I would love to see a girl or boy with a spiked hairdo and leathers. The girl should have on a leather jacket, frilly skirt with boots and the boy should have torn jeans with a leather jacket. It would be great.

Scrappin' Hugs,
Dee

Tasha said...

Love this one! Id like to see some male Creepers
ove tasha xx

Leigh Ann Baird said...

I like someone's idea that mentioned vintage and Addams Family. OOh and the mohawk sounds fabulous!

Deirdre said...

One with a skateboard tucked under his arm would be real fun. Love them!

Tanya said...

Love the creepers! Like someone else mentioned about some with different musical instruments/microphone so they can have their own little concert :)

I can not wait for the contest to start....excited yet nervous LOL

Stampi said...

I would love the mohawk of course and how about some band members like a singer, guitar player, drummer.
by the way I am so loving these images I'm drooling over here waiting for them...lol

oooh a creepy bride and groom would be fantastic...

Stampi said...

oh dear I thought of another...how about a few in old costumes like ball gowns and suits with tails and top hats...

Sonya said...

Good Morning Marie,
Cannot wait for the contest to begin. I thought 1 week was agonizing now we have 5 weeks to wait!!! LOVE THE new set "Roll Call". I really like the sweet innocence of the older characters; however, these creepers are growning on me! Maybe it's the darker side type of thing that is coming out or growing on me! LOL I do like todays best, so far. Since I'm not totally into them yet, this is hard to answer. What about the Military Groups; Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force, etc. Love the idea of Rocker Creepers too. A mohawk might be great on a rocker! Some real goth ones would definately be in keeping with the creeper style. Maybe you should try to incorporate some of the bondage clothing may goths tend to wear. My son use to have a girlfriend who wore this plaid mini shirt, a tank top with suspenders, knee hight socks with converse sneakers and she had short spikey hair in back and long hair that sort of hung in her face. This was one of her cuter outfit because some of them I just had to shake my head at! Thankfully he changed tastse and grown up! Mostly it would be good to start seeing some boys in the creeper line though I certainly understand that the girl are easier to do!!!! Have an Extraordinary Day!

Sheri (a.k.a PaperCrafty) said...

I am loving this new line and the fun names you came up for them!! Off to vote!!

Bobbi said...

Can't wait to start the contest. I would like to see some boy creepers too.

ninasanangel said...

I would love to see a kind of fallen angel type creeper

Maybe even make it a male for something a bit different...

Oooh maybe even like a creepy cupid type character who is a bit naughty shooting his arrows at unlikely couples ha ha XX

JenRaff said...

How about a creepy nurse or teacher? That would be pretty funny! I love the idea of a creepy family like the Addams family!

Joy said...

totally would love a corpse bride and groom!

Faerielore said...

another gorgeous image !!!! i definately want to see boys in this collection

Stephanie J said...

LOVE her!!! Some need spikes (spiky hair, and spiky collars), some need fishnets, some need braided pigtails with bangs, some need combat boots, some need lunchboxes (my metal Rocky Horror Picture Show or Marilyn Manson ones come to mind - hehehe), one of the girls needs a big comfy hoodie & baggy torn jeans, boys would be fun in this series, too... oh, and dreadlocks(short & long! Lots of striped leggings/tights, short skirts, high heels, corsets, and just because some of us are a little...different...one flippng the bird would be hilarious! (Or not. HA!)

Kelly Renae said...

I am excited about this series, how about a photographer creeper

anna_chronistic said...

Ooh, too much fun! How about something like a creepy geek, creepy cook, creepy cosmetologist (which, with the lab coat/smock cosmetologists wear, could look like a nurse, doctor, chemist, etc. depending on accessories), maybe a creepy "creative genius" -- like a writer (Edgar Allen Poe-style?). I also really like the suggestions others had for a creepy fairy and a character with lace and leather or a corset.

MommaJess said...

I think the Creepers are kinda creepy and to be honest I'm not too sure about them. I think that maybe a boy one would be nice to see.

Nancy said...

I think it would be funny to see a really creepy girl in an over the top girly dress whose expression says, "this really bites!"

cgl1539 said...

lots of braids

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

I think a steampunk / Victorian creepy kid would be great!

Keri said...

I like a hippie creepy with dreads. More like the creepy cake one with piggy tails, i still think she is cute with less creep than the others :]

Catherine said...

LOVE the Creepers! I'd like to see a goth boy creeper - spikey hair, facial piercings, black eyeliner, Doc Martens, etc.
Also would like a voodoo zombie one - X'd out eyes, etc.

crafty amy said...

This is super exciting I have only just managed to get here I have one question though Marie sorry to be a pain but Emma (crafty Emma) also wanted to be in the challenge and I did put her in my post with me as she is away at the moment but will be back in time we were going to try and be on a team together but if that is not possible could she fit in a another team?
As for the creepers hummm...... I think a roller blader or a creepy cheerleader could be fun :D

Amy xx

KJ said...

These creepers are sooo cool, I'd also love to see steampunk style characters or perhaps grungey fairies similar to Rock Hard Fairies, I would love, love, love digi/rubbah like these but with your unique style, oh the possibilities.... :D x

PhotoDivaJ said...

I'm a fan of Tim Burton, especially Jack & Sally. My husband and I dress up each year as Jack & Sally for Halloween...so please, make a Jack and Sally Creeper Set!

JessicaRabbit said...

These are so great I am loving the creepers! I think it's been thrown out before but I'd like to see a goth fairy type girl..you know..like fallen angel type thing.
I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Dee said...

I love the idea of the "lydia" creeper and the adams family inspired creepies. maybe a choker. striped tights, maybe. maybe a creepy pet for an accessory. Oh, so excited! Please make them in rubber!!!Please!!!

Sheng said...

What about a baby creeper??

Keri said...

what about a creeper couple? A goth boy and a goth girl, where the boy is handing her a wilted rose or something... Just a thought!

I still like the idea of a hippie with dreads, but I think maybe that should go in another set, not creepers. Maybe you could make a nature/hippie set in the near future? I would have a cow if you did!

April said...

I Just LOVE fallen angel...I WILL have him!!!

Angie Cortes said...

I would love to see a boy wearing a "hoodie"...All the teens ,tweens I see these days are wearing some kind of hooded sweatshirt!

Jen Shults said...

Oh my word! I NEEEED these, lol.
