Where: Serendipity Scrapbooks chat room (under general chat)
When: August 19, 2008
Time: 9 PM EST, 8 PM CST, 7 PM Mtn, 6 PM PST

This is the perfect timing to chat with Ali Edwards and learn more about her new book that will be coming out in August, "Sharing Your Story: Recording Life’s Details with Mini Books" by Ali Edwards.

If you are new or unfamiliar with Ali, here is a little bit about her and her accomplishments:

An advocate for not making things more complicated than they need to be & embracing imperfection, Ali shares cool concepts, design, and project ideas in her idea books: A Designer’s Eye for Scrapbooking, A Designer’s Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper, Life Artist, and Sharing Your Story: Recording Life’s Details with Mini Books (available August 2008). You can also find Ali’s monthly column in Creating Keepsakes magazine: Studio A

"I started scrapbooking in 2002 as a way to organize all the stuff I collected after the birth of my son. It has become so much more than an organizational process for me – it has let me find my own personal passion and voice. It has become all about the process of capturing life and creating art."

Well known for her signature style of everyday-life scrapbooking, Ali is a highly sought-after workshop instructor. She travels the US and internationally conducting classes and inspiring students to tell their stories fearlessly. Ali lives in Eugene, Oregon. She enjoys travel, reading, politics, and spending time with her husband and son.

You can read more about Ali on her blog.  We are so excited and can’t wait to see you there!!!

Gypsy Rose PaperieGuest Designer Call

We’re looking for guest designers to help showcase our pretties, and if you make the cut, you’ll score a free kit! Check out our requirements below for more information:

While we don’t maintain a full-time design team, we do accept guest designers for our quarterly kits. If accepted, you will receive an entire kit to play with. You’re expected to use all products included (it’s ok if you have some leftovers, provided that each product is represented in your artwork) and you will have two weeks to complete your assignments.

The number of assigments we request from you will be extensive because our kits are HUGE, but will vary with each kit. If you are unable to make a committment to the deadline given, please be up front with us! We’ll do what we can to work with you, but it’s easier on everyone if we know ahead of time.

We do require the following of our guest designers:

1. You must have a digital camera, and be proficient enough with it to take clear and focused pictures of your project. You will upload these pictures to us via email (we don’t accept Flickr, Photobucket, or other links to your pictures – please send us the original digital image). If we need to, we will make a request to ship the original project to us at our cost. The project will, of course, be returned to you.

2. You are required to show your work on three major industry websites (giving credit to Gypsy Rose Paperie for kit design). While we don’t claim a partnership or affiliation with anyone, we’ll be happy to provide a specific definition and links to these sites after you’ve accepted a position as a GRP guest designer.

3. If you have a blog, online journal, or other internet communication site, we request that you also publish your work there.

4. While the copyright for your projects is yours alone, we do reserve the right to publish your work on our website, in our online galleries and in our newsletters. We will happily give credit to you, the designer, and link to any websites or blogs you request.

5. We are also happy to provide references and recommendations to any other publications, manufacturers or other industry personnel detailing our positive experiences with you.

6. We know this sounds like a lot of work! Please keep in mind that the kit you receive will have a minimum retail value of $60. This is a TON of product and it’s yours to play with for free. That’s an awesome reason to be a GRP guest designer alone!

If, after reading all of these requirements, you’d still like to be a guest designer, all you have to do is send three examples of your best work to us here at [email protected] . Don’t forget to include your name, address, phone number and affiliations {other design teams you’ve served on, past and current; industry websites you frequent; galleries your work may be featured in; blog links; any other information you tink might be pertinent}, plus digital images of your projects. We’ll get back with you within five days from receipt of your email!

{Sidenote: we do not show preference to guest design applicants because of the number of DT’s you currently serve on, number of times you’ve been published or any other accomplishments! If we’re happy with your work and it’s never been seen publicly, we’d still love to have your designs represent GRP! We ask for this information as a “getting-to-know-you” tool only.}
