Design Team Search is ON

I know it takes a lot to put yourself out there...I want to encourage you to BE BRAVE! You'll never know what you can accomplish unless you try...

Near my home is a private high school which puts a new and interesting sign out front each week:

This week's sign says:

Embrace Change. PS...it may hurt.

So go for it...even if it may hurt. We're here for you!

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is holding a Design Team search to add to our team! Inside Out is a different kind of kit club – it’s about a form of what we call ‘Scrapbook Therapy’ – using scrapbooking as a form of self-exploration, self-expression and self-discovery. Our goal is to encourage the use of scrapbooking as a way for us to tap into our deep inner worlds in the midst of our very busy lives. We will be taking submissions from now through November 6, 2009.

We are seeking two talented designers, who are passionate about scrapbooking and personal growth to share in this journey, to add to our team. As a Design Team member, you will serve a critical role in promoting the kits and the website on message boards, the blog, and representing the company where ever you can. We ask that our designers not hold design team positions with any other kit club or online scrapbooking retailer. Manufacturer design team appointments and teaching at your LSS are fine.

As a member of our Design Team, you will be asked to:
1. create 5 layouts using 80% materials from our kit and relating to the theme of the month
2. contribute two monthly articles for subscriber-only content (tips or techniques with step by step photos )
3. participate on our message boards at least 4 days per week
4. design for Inside Out for a 6-month term, beginning on December 1, 2009 (starting with the January 2010 Kit)
5. post your Inside Out Los as requested by us at scrapbook community sites
6. submit your LOs for publication as requested

All projects made with the kit are yours to keep, and when used in the newsletter or on the website, you will be given full credit. As our designer, you can also submit your own work for publication after 1 month of debut of the kit, as long as you give Inside Out proper credit.

Your compensation will be:
1. Free monthly kit with no shipping charge from January-June 2010.
2. Admission to CHA-Winter in Anaheim, CA, Jan 24-27, 2010 (travel, hotel and other expenses not covered).
3. Recognition on our website with a link to your blog.
4. Incredible friendships, publishing opportunities and creative insight into your heart!

To apply, please email the following to scrapbookdesign@aol.com (subject – Design Team):
1. photos of 4 layouts of any size. All 4 projects should be about your inner world – your thoughts, feelings, dreams, fears
2. links to your online gallery, blog and/or resume, if available
3. your full contact information: name, phone number, email address, and mailing address
4. a short paragraph or two about why you want to be one of our designers – why this concept matters to you
5. a list of your current scrapbooking commitments – other DT work, etc.

We’re a passionate and creative team looking for like-minded people who love to share their thoughts and feelings using our craft and foster a supportive and welcoming community. We look forward to getting to know you!

How wonderfully exciting! The current team has done such a good job. Can't wait to see what is in store for the new team.

Is this open to international scrappers?

I found your blog through Scrapscene, and I really like it! I'm currently on the design team of Forward Progress, which has a similar concept. We too try to put as much of our emotions as possible in our scrapping, we try to tell our story, our inner feelings, through our LO's. Seeing as I started scrapbooking because I wanted to keep a record, to tell a story, and not just display pictures in a pretty manner, this concept really appeals to me.
I'm really sorry I can't apply, I have just accepted a position as a DT member for another kit club, this would have been so perfect for me (meaning, I would have been perfect for you LOL).
Good luck in your search, I'll be following your awesome challenges.
