January - New Beginnings

Good morning and welcome to our first challenge of 2019, our theme this month is:

********New Beginnings********

New baby, new job, wedding, new school, engagement, retirement, new home, but please not regular Birthdays as there are so many other special occasions and we look forward to seeing all your hand stamped creations.

For this one month only we would like to direct you to the paragraph below, it will appear each month but we would like to make you aware of it's significance and your responsibility to familiarise yourself with our simple challenge rules.

Please ensure you check our challenge rules here before entering, it may save you embarrassment and make sure your entry receives comments from the team and is entered into the prize draw: We run our challenge for fun in our spare time. It is your responsibility if entering to make sure you check our challenge rules, it is not our responsibility to read your posts and remind you if you fail to comply. If you do not follow the rules we will simply ignore your entry.

"My name is Suha and I have created Swedish House Crafts in the second part of 2016. It is a little Swedish online shop with lots of enthusiasm for crafting in a different style, dare to be different. Visit SHC and learn more. I have been professionally crafting since 2008, I gave colouring classes (with Promarkers) in Sweden, had exhibition in 2014, and used to make cards and mixed media mainly. I have a master degree in digital and visual design. Yes, 100% of graphics in the shop are my artwork including the logotype. Because I am not leaving my education, I am using it in my passion for paper crafting in the first place. Great combination as the future is full of plans and surprises, hold on and follow SHC on Facebook and blog, you'll find SHC everywhere."

At Swedish House Crafts I run a Blogger of the Month and will be choosing 6 people for the first 6 months of the year. Those who I choose, gets really special offers. All applicants receives £5 voucher automatically after application is complete (with minimum purchase £20).

Hallo everyone and a happy and healthy new year !!!!

Got a little Problem with the rules....
According to EU directives, EU participants will find it hard to #5. because the company's name can already be interpreted as advertising - which is not allowed for private bloggers.

I seem to be unable to link up now, even though I've been linking from Flickr for months. Do you know if this is a problem with Flickr, or a change in the rules? I emailed for assistance.

Here is my project link:

I've mailed you back with some info Karen and looks like it worked OK as you seemed to be linked now and all working.

brenda said...

Petra (Hellerlittle), also mailed you, in theory your Privacy Policy on your own blog should cover you.

Should have added Karen, only problem remains is that some DT's like myself ar unable to comment on Flickr.
