Scrapbooking Calls, Contests and Events

Method PlaygroundDesign Team Call

Are you a scrap technique junkie? Do you love to try new things with your scrapbooking? Method Playground, a scrap technique challenge blog, is looking to add some new designers…. perhaps you will be one of them!

A bit about us: Method Playground currently has 4 designers who post technique-based scrap challenges every other week on a rotating basis. We also love to utilize guest hosts (like Ali Edwards, Layle Koncar, Teresa Collins – to name a few!). We strive to be a fun, low-stress challenge blog. We do this because we enjoy it – there is no financial compensation – just the joy of playing and sharing.

(1) Post a challenge to the MP blog on a rotating basis (we are hoping every 3-4 months). Provide a RAK to a person(s) of your choice. It does NOT have to be huge.
(2) Participate in the other bi-weekly challenges given by your co-designers (2 layouts/month – easy peasy!) We hope you will participate as much as possible, but we understand that sometimes life gets in the way of scrapping.
(3) Give feedback to those who participate in our challenges.

Application: If interested, please submit the following:
(1) 3 layouts. Please tell us a little about any techniques you used (please keep the attachments under 100K).
(2) Links to any other blogs or online galleries that you want us to see.
(3) Link to a resume (if you have one).
(4) A short paragraph telling us why you would like to be a part of our team.
(5) A list of 3 sample challenges that you might use if chosen (you are not required to use these if you are chosen – we just want to see your ideas!)

Previous design team work is not necessary. This is also not an exclusive gig – you are free to do whatever other scrapping you like!

Please apply via email: [email protected]

DEADLINE is July 15, 2008. New designers will be notified by August 1, 2008

Kits & PiecesDesign Team Call

Kits & Pieces is looking for talented designers! We are looking to add two people to our fabulous design team, as well as identifying future guest designers.

Kits & Pieces offers expandable kits (2 per month), which means you choose how much you get of many key products. This accommodates scrappers who are watching their budgets and want a fabulous kit for under $20, scrappers who want more than one kit without having to pay for shipping twice, scrappers who want a kit jam-packed with all the latest and greatest products, and everyone in between!

We are looking for people who:
*are creative, dependable and flexible
*are willing to be active in our online community
*like to share their work

*participate in hosting online crops (every 6 months or so) and help with contests
*post their layouts on their blog and on other websites, crediting K&P when possible
*take 2-3 months off per year–this gives designers a creative break and allows us to keep things fresh

You will receive:
*one kit each month
*a discount to the store
*access to online classes
*in some cases, the ability to teach classes (for cash)

To apply, please provide the following information:
Name, address, phone #, and e-mail (sorry, US residents only)
