Guest Design Team Call!

So Flamingo Scraps has decided it's time to grow its flock again...  If you love to scrap and paper craft, and enjoy inspiring others, then we are looking for you!!

We are looking for eight people to be our next Guest Design Team members.  For a term of four months, we will feature two different artists each month -- 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 an outline and questions to our Guest Design Team 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, Websters, Tattered Angels, Fancy Pants, etcetera) in your introductory post.*
  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, 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 Four. Flamingo Four is a  feature on our blog that has been really popular. We will mail our guest design team members for the month a kit with four fabulous products from the store... you will create something with your kit using all four products for us to share on the blog!! Once posted on our blog, you can share it anywhere you want!! 
  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 April and July, where they will be featured and participate in the Flamingo Four 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 Hocus Pocus.*

So what will you get in return?

  • A fabulous kit of four products from the store to participate in Flamingo Four for the month you are a featured Guest Design Team member.
  • A one-time 20% discount at Flamingo Scraps on your next purchase made between the time you provide your blog posts and August 31, 2011.  Please note this discount cannot be combined with any other offers such as free shipping, but we welcome you to shop during sales!!!
  • Exposure here on our blog, and by extension our Facebook Page, including special recognition on a separate page on our blog!
So if you are interested... Please send us an application!

To apply, please send an e-mail, subject line "Guest DT Call", with the answers to the following questions and attach 3-5 photos of your favorite altered art, mini albums, cards or layouts that best showcase your current style (these will be used in your introduction post, so please make sure they meet the requirements for posts on our blog above!).
