Guest Design Team Call!

So we have decided it's time to grow our flock a little...  If you love to create altered art, cards or layouts, and enjoy inspiring others, then we are looking for you!!

We are looking for eight people to be our first guest design team members.  Each month we will feature two artists -- one on Tuesdays, the other on Thursdays -- and here are all the details!!

The Requirements:

  1. Answer a short Q&A biography we will send our guest DT members, so we can feature you on the blog for your first post. We will also include a picture of you, links to your blog, gallery, facebook and/or twitter, as well as 3-5 of your favorite projects to date that best showcase your style and use products from manufacturers we currently carry in the store (i.e. Prima, Pink Paislee, Maya Road, Websters, Tattered Angels, Fancy Pants, Graphic 45, etcetera).*
  2. Provide two blog posts relevant to our readers. Required to use products from manufacturers we currently carry in the store (i.e. Prima, Pink Paislee, Maya Road, Websters, Tattered Angels, Fancy Pants, Graphic 45, etcetera)*... but other than that, the door is wide open! Share your fabulous layout or your favorite mini album... your altered art... the sky is the limit. We look forward to working with you to develop your creative ideas for our readers!
  3. Participate in our exciting new feature... Flamingo Five. Flamingo Five is a new feature on our blog starting in September. We will mail our guest design team members for the month a kit with five fabulous products from the store... you will create something with your kit using all five products for us to share on the blog!! Once posted on our blog, you can share it anywhere you want!!  Our first Flamingo Five will be featuring some of the new Graphic 45!!
  4. Promote Flamingo Scraps on message boards you frequent and your personal blog (if you have one) – we will give you a special blinkie to add to your blog and/or message board signature!!
  5. Commit for a one month termEach guest design team member will be assigned a month between September and December, where they will be featured and participate in the Flamingo Five mentioned above.
  6. Open to residents of the USA and Canada onlyAt this time, due to shipping costs and time deadlines, we will only be able to accomodate residents of the US and Canada.  We apologize to our friends, customers and followers who live outside of that area.  We hope you understand and will reconsider in future calls.
*Please note that we are requiring use of products by manufacturers we carry in the store, not necessarily items we are currently selling in the store. This means you can use Primas from your stash that we no longer have in stock or older lines from Pink Paislee such as Cupid.*

So what will you get in return?

  • A fabulous kit of five products from the store to participate in Flamingo Five for the month you are a guest design team member.
  • A 25% discount at Flamingo Scraps on your next purchase.
  • Exposure here on our blog including special recognition on a new page on our blog!
