DT Call- There is still time left :)



Hello friends!

I am reposting the original post below for our 2016 Design Team Call. There is still plenty of time to apply! I would love it if you would create and apply! Please do not think that your work is not good enough or that you are not skilled enough, all are welcome and all are good enough!  So please read over this post for all the information  and I look forward to seeing your creations! The deadline to apply is March 14th by 11:59pm EST.

Well the time has come once again! I am looking to add at least  4-6 new designers to add to the awesome team of ladies that I am proud to work with every week. Most of the ladies on my team have been with me for 2 years and we have formed a little family. There is nothing as precious as the sisterhood we form in this industry.

 Have you been wanting to be on a design team but never try out because you think that your work is not "good" enough? I know that many of you are sitting there answering this question with a "yes, thats me"! I am looking for designers who are not afraid to take a leap and will just dive right on in, feet first! No need to be worried or judgmental on your work. Let me be the judge of that! If you want to be on my design team, take the leap and let me see what you have! Now keep in mind, I am simple and very laid back. I welcome ALL levels of crafters to try out and I want you to know that ALL levels of crafters have the same advantage of being chosen. I am not going to single out "friends" or people that are "popular" for my design team. I play fair and I will tell you what I am looking for, but before I do, here is what You need to have within yourself before I even look at your work. 

  1. You must have a huge passion for crafting! :)
  2. You have to be outgoing, down to earth, sociable, creative, enthusiastic and human! :)
  3.  You have to eat, sleep, and breathe crafting! :)
  4. You Must be Happy and laugh a lot! :)

If you have all four of those things... then here is what I want you to do. TRY OUT!!
Your Responsibilities as a DT member if you are chosen to be on the team:

1. You will need to have an active blog 


2. You will need to create 1-3 projects per month. During special occasions and blog hops, you may be required to do an extra project or two for that month. 



3. You will need to advertise on social media for all upcoming challenges, blog hops and guest design spotlights.
 ( Social Media platform preferred is Facebook)


4. You will be required to join our private DT Yahoo Group. If you do not have a Yahoo ID, you will be required to create one.
5. The term will be for 6 months and will run from March 25, 2016 to September 23, 2016. At the end of the 6 month term, you will have the opportunity to stay on should you choose to. If you do plan to leave after your six months, I need a heads up at least one month prior to your term's end. Those designers who stay on the team will have the opportunity to design for my company when I relaunch it back up. Hoping to relaunch the company sometime this year. 

What you will receive in return:
1. You will receive an array of digital stamps and cut files from over ten different companies in the industry.

2. You will receive more exposure on your blog, preferably leading into more followers and friends 

3. You will receive an organized Yahoo Group to find all challenge information, links, sponsor information & friendly chat with your DT sisters.

4. You will receive the opportunity to be entered into all giveaways

5. You will build up an amazing assortment of digital stamps from some of your favorite companies, that you can use over and over again in your own projects
