Hiding in My Craft Room is once again looking for a handful of creative artists to promote and give inspiration for our weekly challenges. Challenges are posted each Saturday at 5AM California time. You will have to wake up VERY early in the morning and post your post to make sure that it is posted on time! JUST KIDDING! We ALL schedule ours ahead of time and sleep til noon! Ok, maybe not noon! Don't I wish my kids would just let me sleep past 7:30!
Here's the challenge schedule:
1st week: A Color Challenge
2nd week: Super Scraps Saturday - time to use up some of those SCRAPS!
3rd week: Try a Technique Week
4th week: Mix it Up! The challenge this week will be different month to month! And can be anything!
5th week: Freestyle! This week you can enter with ANY creation!!
Here's how to apply:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information...
Blog and/or Online Gallery Link:
Please let me know a little bit about you, such as:
Are you currently on any other design teams? If so, which ones?
How long have you been paper crafting?
What is your favorite stamping company/companies?
Are you comfortable with "out of the box" challenges? There might be times when sponsors have things that are not within your comfort zone.
Attach at least 3 of your creations showing your talent and diversity, you can include cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, 3d items, any paper creation!
Anything else you think I would like to know or you want to share! :)
Deadline for submissions is March 16th! I will be emailing the new DT by midnight March 18th!
Design Team Member REQUIREMENTS
As a Hiding in My Craft Room design team member, you must submit one project per week using the specified challenge for that week. You will receive one month's worth of challenges at a time, at least two weeks before the challenge is posted. We have a HIMCR Design Team Private Blog! Your submission for the week's challenge needs to be uploaded to our DT blog by 7AM on Friday of each week so that I'll have time to get the challenge post ready for Saturday morning at 5AM California time!
You must keep up with your blog posting at least once a week and have the current week's Hiding in My Craft Room challenge posted each Saturday linking it back to the challenge post. It is also asked that you leave comments on some of the entries submitted by participants of the HIMCR challenges.
You must also display the Hiding in My Craft Room button on your blog. We also have a DT button!
Sometimes we will have sponsors that sell digital products. You might be given images or kits to work with! These might be items that are different from your crafting 'style'. You must be willing to work with sponsors' products. This promotes them and gives us free stuff to play and learn with! It is also expected that the HIMCR sponsor be mentioned within your post especially when using their products. :) Also, I just want to let you know that I already have the entire year full of sponsors and giveaways each week! Fun! FUN! FUN!
Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of April 2014 - September 2014.
We will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day on May 3rd with multiple challenges and giveaway! This is so much fun and yes, CRAZY! But FUN! There will be a minimum of 5 challenges, PHEW! You will not be required to make something for each of them but of course at least one! But I think you will want to do more!
Also, HIMCR's blogiversary is August 11th so on the Saturday before August 9th we will be doing pretty much the same thing, just different challenges and different sponsors! Sounds like fun, huh?
We do have a lot of fun! We have a HIMCR Facebook group where we get to know each other and can ask questions or just share! We truly become a team and more importantly friends!
Be sure and have your submission turned in on time because the new team needs to be notified via email by March 18th so they will have time to get the challenges and be ready to begin on April 5th, 2014! And please only apply if you are willing to participate, make new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some crafting!
If you have any questions please feel free to send them to me using the 'Contact Me' button at the top of the page. Be sure and put in the subject line, DT question. However, you might get a quicker response through the HIMCR Facebook fan page. The link is on the sidebar.
Thank you so much!
I look forward to seeing your submissions!
