DESIGN TEAM CALL!

Who are we?
A Daily Inspiration is sponsored by Scrapbookmate, Europe's largest distributor of scrapbooking and paper craft supplies. We supply local scrap/craft supplies stores all over Europe from the tip of Norway to the depths of Spain, the western shores of Ireland to the golden sands of Cyprus.

So here's the deal:
We are looking for amazing scrapbookers from every corner of Europe who can 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 to showcase our supplies, in rotation, on the ‘a daily inspiration’ blog? Have you got what it takes to wow the readers of the blog with your outstanding talent? Your artistry will spur others to try new and neat tricks - things they never thought possible.

The design team search:
We are looking for 4 new designers to work alongside our existing team. We encourage every scrapping/crafting European to enter the DT search who fits the Scrapbookmate bill. We would like to boost our existing team of designers with crafters who can turn out 3-4 pieces of work a month.

You get to be on our team for one year, make us a few projects each month, 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:
Email us 5 low-resolution images of your recent work that represents your style. These could include:
*a layout
*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.

We have a particular interest in scrapbooking and altered arts. If you usually make cards, then that's fine too.

NOTE:
Please make sure that all work is yours and 100% original. We cannot accept entries from people without the following information:
*name
*address (email & home address)
*daytime contact number.
We would also like links to any blogs or websites that you have.

Applicants are limited to the EU at this time.

What you get out of it!
Membership of the Scrapbookmate design team for a FULL year
Work regularly published on the ‘Daily Inspiration’ blog and Scrapbookmate website
Your designs recognized as YOURS all over Europe
Over €1000 worth of product within the year (in monthly goodie boxes)
Access to products before they are on sale in the shops
Trip to Scrapbookmate Holland for training shopping!
Ability to purchase at ‘Instructor Discount’ from Scrapbookmate
The opportunity to work directly with the Scrapbookmates portfolio of companies

We will also support you:
When you are published by assisting you in anyway that we can.
When you have ideas that you need to work on….

What we expect in return!
We expect designers to work to a brief and deadline
three/ four original projects every month designed as classes to be featured on the websites – with a full set of instructions.
Working with the Design Team Coordinator to improve what’s featured on the blog and keep it BANG up to date in its style and approach.
The ability to work as a team with other DT members and the Scrapbookmate staff designers.
Being an ambassador for Scrapbookmate in your country.
The professionalism to work directly with the Scrapbookmates portfolio of companies

And finally…we EXPECT you to have great fun and enjoy being a member of the Scrapbookmate family!

Email your entries to sbmblog@hotmail.com by 15th may 2009. Successful applicants only will be notified shortly after the closing date.

Good Luck!

Though this blog is in my favorites for quite some time, I still happened to miss this anouncement. And today it's the 15th May! Uh-oh....
Erm: quick question, since I am higly excited reading this and of course would love to take a chance in this call!!!
Do you ask for not yet published pieces of art, or is it okay if it's already been posted on my blog?
And 5 pictures on 4 projects...so that's one kind of project in two different creations, right?
Please post me a reply to this comment, so I will know if I can still join with the projects I can show you today!
Just a reply in this post, would be great.
Thanks in advance.
