Couture Cardstock – Design Team Call
Couture Cardstock products are hand picked and tested by paper crafters. Our offering includes over 200 different colors and finishes. Couture Cardstock encourages crafters to use paper weighted specifically for the particular technique, project, or challenge at hand. Each of our papers are weighted (light, medium or heavy) and helpful project suggestions can be found in our item descriptions and design team member gallery.
We are looking for 4 people to join our team: 1 layout designer, 1 card designer, 1 altered art designer, and 1 SVG/GSD file designer. You are welcome to apply for as many of these positions as you like, but you must submit a separate application for each position, and you may only be chosen for one position. Applications will be accepted immediately, and must be received by November 15th.
All applications will be reviewed carefully, and 3 finalists for each position will be chosen and notified by November 18th. At that time, each finalist will be shipped a paper pack, and have 1 week to complete 1 additional project in accordance with our guidelines and using our paper products.

We realize, that while our main goal as scrapbookers is to record the memories of our lives for future generations, we often get hung up in how visually pleasing our pages are (or are not)… Sometimes pages will sit on my desk for days, elements unattached, because I cannot make them work!
Have you ever browsed the gallery (or your own albums) and spotted pages that stand out immediately? Are there pages that you look at and just cannot figure out why they don't seem to work?
Those "perfect" pages are usually ones that follow some of the most simple design principals. The principals of balance, gradation, repetition, contrast, harmony, dominance and unity.
This week at Croppin Paradise we hope to demystify these principles of design and help you incorporate them into your scrapbooking pages to help you create great, eye catching pages every time you sit down to scrap!
Also, each day will include a new challenge with a chance to win a prize! Challenges will be open until November 15th at 12midnight.
Watch the blog on November 2nd for the first element!
