ScrapBookMate's Blog - DT CALL

You Scrapbook, right?
You see the latest products and you want them now.
Like, really - NOW!
You keep a vigil on the latest releases at CHA and in the same breath you visualise those products on your pages. Sigh.
Have no fear, you are not alone; we really do feel your pain!
Enter Scrapbook Mate - the largest distributor of the latest and greatest releases from your absolute favourite suppliers. It is likely we supply your local scrap/craft supplies store, from the tip or Norway to the depths of Spain, the western shores of Ireland to the golden sands of Cyprus. We want to reach out to those who just have to have the latest supplies.

So here's the deal:
We are looking for amazing scrapbookers from every corner of Europe who we can adopt to work with our products. Do you see a product and know in an instant how to get the best from it? Can you work on a tight deadline using the grooviest supplies to showcase, in rotation, on this daily inspiration blog? Have you got what it takes to wow the readers of this blog with your outstanding talent? Your artistry will spur others to try new and neat tricks - things they never thought possible.

The Search:
We are looking for 10 designers on our team. We encourage every scrapping/crafting European to enter the DT search who fits the Scrapbook Mate bill. We foresee a team of brilliant and shiny crafters who can turn out 2-3 pieces of work a month. You get to be on our team for one year, makes us a couple of products, take a photo, post the image to us and we showcase them on this blog. The bonus is you get to keep the product without it being mailed anywhere! Now who would turn that opportunity down?

What do you need to do to enter:
It’s easy! Email us 5 low-res images of your recent work that represents your style. These should include
*a layout (preferably 12”x12”)
*a Mini-book
*Altered project/Home Décor
*a card.
We would like to see examples of different techniques using paint, stamps, ink, freestyle and texture. We are happy for you to submit previously published work if you prefer. We have a particular interest in scrapbooking and altered arts. If you usually make cards, then that's fine too. Scrap supplies are not always about the page, it’s about the passion and how best to achieve wonderful items that you decorate your home with too.

Email your entries to by Friday 7th December (midnight) and we will painstakingly sort the entries, pick 10 winners and announce our DT in time for Christmas (On Friday 21st December)…what a great gift for the New Year.

Keep checking back - we will keep you abreast of things as and when they happen.

Please make sure that all work is yours and 100% original. We cannot accept entries from people without the following information:
*address (email & snail mail)
*daytime contact number.
We would also like links to any blogs or websites that you have. Please be aware that Design Team obligations and responsibilities will run from 1st January 2008-31st December 2008.

What you get out of it!
Membership of the ScrapbookMate design team for a FULL year
