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 which we are all administrators of! I will have a post on there and your submission for the week's challenge needs to be uploaded to our DT blog by noon on Friday of each week so that I'll have time to get the challenge post ready for Saturday morning at 5AM Central time!
You must have a current blog, posting at least once a week and once on the taem have the current week's Hiding in My Craft Room challenge posted each Saturday along with your creation linking back to the HIMCR challenge post. It is also asked that you leave comments on some of the entries submitted by participants of the HIMCR challenges.
You must display the Hiding in My Craft Room button on your blog. We also have a DT button! You can choose which one you want to use.
We have sponsors that offer us products to use and promote. You will be given images to work with! These might be images 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 2016 year full of sponsors and giveaways each week! Fun! FUN! FUN!
HIMCR Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of March 2016 - August 2016.
We will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day on May 7th 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 I think you will want to!
Aaaand, in August is our HIMCR Bloggiversary were we have again a day full of challenges and prizes!
We do have a lot of fun! We have a HIMCR Facebook private 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 Febraury 18th so you will have time to get the challenges and be ready to begin your first HIMCR challenge on March 5th, 2016! Please only apply if you are willing to participate, make new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some crafting!!! YEAH!
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!
