Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today, BugabooStamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 

 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at

DT Call at Tuesday Throwdown

All of our Design Team spots have been filled and those selected are being notified.  We will be announcing the newest members in a couple of weeks.  Thank you to all who applied.

THIS IS A STICKY POST AND WILL REMAIN ON TOP UNTIL OCTOBER 13.

You read that correctly -- we're having a DT Call here at Tuesday Throwdown!  We have 4 spots to fill by the beginning of November.  If you think you might be interested in committing to one of the most supportive, friendliest, best-ever teams anywhere in Blogland, here's how to apply:

1.  Send an e-mail to tuesdaythrowdown@gmail.com with "DT Call" in the subject line.

2.  Give us a link to your blog so we can review your wondrous creations.

3.  Tell us briefly why you'd like to serve on the DT.  

4.  Tell us about any DT work you are doing or have done previously.  No experience is necessary but if you have it, tell us about it.

Requirements --

Although we are a weekly challenge, you will only be responsible for making a card or other paper craft project once every two weeks.  We have two teams who alternate challenges.

You will have to use Sponsors' images and products, mostly digital stamps, and follow the challenge theme.  This will usually require hand coloring of the images.

You must have a blog on which to post your work on the day the challenge starts.

You will be responsible for commenting on a specific comment rotation during your challenge week.

You must be able to take quality photographs of your project and to post them to the DT communication group, as well as your own blog.

You must be able to consistently meet deadlines.

Please be willing to make a 6 month commitment to the team, and consider staying on for another term if you are able.
