Muse Team News

Vote for your favourites from last week's challenge here before 8 am EST on Tuesday!


Normally on the fourth (and fifth!) Monday of the month, we would have a guest designer.

This month is not a normal month. We've said good-bye to two very special friends and DT members and I'm sure you're wondering who is going to replace them.

So without further ado, please join me in welcoming our 3 new DT members!



Joan Bardee

I am thrilled and honored to serve as a Muse and look forward to seeing what folks make inspired by my cards.  
I've been stamping for over a decade and have tried just about every style and product.  Most recently, my style is what I call "clean and difficult" because it can be quite difficult to know when to stop!  
You can find me at Dear Paperlicious, where I try and have fun! 



Anita Bowden

Hi, I'm Anita and I live in a coastal town in South Devon, in the south west of England.  I have a full-time job as an Audio Secretary and in my spare time I love to get creative and find some escapism in cardmaking.  I bought a few cardmaking kits about ten years ago but it was in 2012 that I discovered some fantastic blogs I saw advertised in a craft magazine and these inspired me to really get involved and create my own blog, 'Neet & Crafty'.  It took me a while to find my own style which I can definitely now call clean and simple.  I love creating with stamps, ink and dies, and adore crisp and clean designs with lots of yummy white space, but I do like to try new techniques and push myself to try something different.  The craft blogging world is such a wonderful community to be part of and I've 'met' so many wonderful friends.  I'm so looking forward to being part of the Muse team and I hope I can provide some inspiration with my designs




Tracey McNeely
Hi, my name is Tracey McNeely, and my blog is In My Creative Opinion. I am a Canadian girl that lives just outside of the city of Toronto. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years and have two fabulous kids--Ben who is 20 and Brooklyn who just turned 18. I love to play with paper, stamps and dies creating projects that are clean and simple. I am so excited to be a part of the Muse Design Team and hope to inspire all of you with my designs!



That's right, we will now have 4 DT members and Guest Designers will be selected in the months where there are 5 Mondays (August 30 will be our next Guest spot).

Our monthly Muse timetable will look like this:


Week 1 - Joan
Week 2 - Michele
Week 3 - Anita
Week 4 - Tracey
Week 5 - Guest Designer

In the meantime, we'll take a little break and come back fresh and ready for the second half of 2015 on July 6, when Joan will be our Muse! We can't wait to get started! See you then!

Muse Challenge #122

Vote for your favourite entries from last week here before Tuesday at 8:00 am EDT.

We've got more sad news this week. Marion, who has been with us since the beginning of Muse (more than two years ago!) is stepping down. Not only has Marion been a wonderful source of inspiration, but she really made it easy for me when I took over Muse from its creator, Jackie about two years ago - my very first challenge blog! I was new and nervous, but Marion and the rest of the DT at the time embraced me and helped me build Muse into what it is today! So thank you Marion - we wish you all the best!

As you can see, our DT will be changing a lot! Tune in next week for the announcement of our new team members! In the meantime, take the last opportunity to have Marion as your Muse inspiration!

Here's your Muse for this week, Marion Vagg







Here are the 3 simple rules:
  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow members' submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow members' submissions that you find inspiring.

The InLinkz will close and voting will begin at 8:00 am next Monday. Please don't forget to come back and vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions. 

Our new challenge will begin at 9:00 am on Monday.

Voting ends on Tuesday at 8:00 am. 

The results of voting will be announced at noon on Tuesday.
