Scrapbooker’s Club House – Store Guest Designer Contest (June)
Every one of us has had teachers, mentors, or preceptors; helpers who taught us something, people who showed us the ropes, guided us or pointed the way.
Throughout our lives, we encounter many different kinds of teachers. They may be found in traditional settings or in less traditional ones. Experience can be a teacher, too!
The challenge to you this month for our Guest Design Team Member Contest is to create a layout explaining how a â€œteacherâ€ has influenced YOUR life or the life of someone you love. Remember, this â€œteacherâ€ can be a in a traditional or less traditional form.
Your layout can be 8 x 8″, 6 x 12″, or 12 x12″ in size. Photos are an optional part of this contest layout.
Please post your creation in the Scrapbookerâ€™s Club House Gallery in the June 2008 Guest Designer Contest folder. Images must be 1024 KB or less.
Journaling will be a factor considered in this contest, so you must also post your journaling on the Forum under the June ’08 Guest Designer Contest thread so that we can all learn about the â€œteacherâ€ who had an influence on your life or that of someone you love.
DEADLINE for submissions is Friday, May 23, 2008 at midnight MST.
If you win, remember that youâ€™ll have the privilege and creative joy of being a Guest Design Team Member at Scrapbookerâ€™s Club House for the month of June.
Youâ€™ll receive an amazing kit to design with and have fun playing along with our friendly and talented Design Team, issuing challenges on the forum! So, join in the fun and camaraderie that comes from a shared love of scrapbooking!
Enjoy creating! Can’t wait to see your entries! (This contest is only open to Canadian and US scrappers due to the time required for International kit mailings.)

Cocoa Daisy – Store Design Team Call
Cocoa Daisy is looking to add two very talented, creative and motivated scrapbook artists to join our design team, the Daisy Divas. Our design team is made up of dedicated scrapbookers with the ability to create stunning layouts and projects using products in unique and unexpected ways.
We are looking for design team members who will be very present on the Cocoa Daisy site (both on the message board and in the gallery) and will actively promote the site elsewhere.
We are fine with design team members holding positions with manufacturers or stores. However, we ask that if you wish to be a part of Cocoa Daisy that you are not involved with other companies that create kits.
The design team call will run from April 22nd through May 25th (new date!). We will announce winners on May 30th. The term will be from June 2008 through June 2009.
Here’s what you need to do to apply:
Send an email to email@example.com with “DT call” in the subject line. In the email please include the following:
2. Contact information
3. Your username in the Cocoa Daisy gallery
4. A link to your online blog, resume or gallery
5. A short bio about yourself that includes a description of your scrapbook style
6. Any design teams you are currently on or have been on in the past
7. How you would fit on the Cocoa Daisy team
8. Any ideas you have for increasing gallery and message board participation and otherwise enhancing the Cocoa Daisy web site.
And of course, we would love to see your work! Please create a Sub-Album in our gallery under “Design Team Call” album, and upload at least 3 of your favorite layouts – these must include at least one 12 x 12 and one 8 Â½ x 11 layouts.
We also ask that you create a layout specifically for this call. We would like to see what you consider to be the perfect kit. There are many takes on this and we want to see what your creative mind can come up with! You can tell us about your favorite manufacturers, your favorite products, what you think would enhance Cocoa Daisy’s future kits, suggestions on what you think we should include in a kit, or your unique vision of a kit. This is your chance to really let your own style shine through!
Design Team Perks:
As a member of the Daisy Divas you will receive a free kit each month, discounts on addons and passes to industry tradeshows. We appreciate all the hard work of our design team so you can also expect to receive periodic gifts as well.
Each month we would like you to create at least 3 layouts (either 12 x 12 or 8 Â½ x 11) and either an additional layout or a project. All should highlight the Cocoa Daisy monthly kit in addition to your unique style. We also expect active participation on the message board and in our gallery as well.
Should you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
