DT CALL - CLOSES 1-15-15

Design Team Call


  
Cute As A Button is recruiting, and currently looking to add members to our wonderful U.S. Design Team!
  1. Do you currently have an active blog?
  2. Do you have an active Facebook?
  3. Do you love to create projects, working with digital images?
  4. Do you love to create for the sake of creating and to help inspire others?
  5. Can you take good clean/clear pictures of your work?
  6. Can you meet a deadline?
  7. Can you create up to 4 projects a month?




I am looking for DT members to join our Team, to showcase my Cute As A Button products as well as our Sponsor images.


What do you need to do? 
First of all, you must have a blog and Facebook account that you keep current.



Next, send me an email to serve as your DT Application.  It must include the following information:

  1. Your name and location
  2. Your blog address and Facebook page link;
  3. How you would describe your style (we’re looking for all different styles);
  4. Why you would like to work with Cute As A Button products?
  5. Do you belong to any current DT Teams? If so which ones?
  6. Four (4) different projects showcasing your talent (don’t worry, it doesn’t matter how new you are to card making).  These can be most recent or older projects (either uploaded to the email or linked to your blog).
  7. Let us know what your experience is working within a design team.  If you don’t have any DT experience, that is okay too!
  8. Any other relevant information you’d like to share.

What is in it for you?
We are NOT looking for people who are into design teams just to grab every digi or free goodies they can. If that is you, then I’m afraid you just won’t be a good fit with us.  HOWEVER, if you are mature, honest, have good moral character, love to have fun, enjoy colouring digital images, and want to help inspire your fellow Design Team members along with our readers, then this is the place for you! 


  1. You will be provided with a wide range of images from Cute As A Button Stamps to work with and use not only for our challenges, but on projects for yourself and other challenges.
  2.  Your name and blog link will be displayed on the Cute As A Button Blog.

Other Details…

  1. Terms are for 5 months long (with an option to extend if mutually agreeable) and will start once you have been accepted onto the team.  
  2. We will be creating one Team for now.  On average you will need to create 2 projects a month.  However there may be some months where you need to create 5  projects (as some months may have an extra Sunday).  
  3. You may be asked to participate in special events, i.e. blog hops, etc. but these will be planned and discussed well in advance.
  4. Projects  need to be uploaded to our private DT blog (2) days before your scheduled day.  The only requirement for this project is to use a Button image.  Other than that, anything goes.  All group communication and file uploading will take place in the Cute As A Button Challenges DT Blog and Cute As A Button Facebook Group Page. It is a private blog and only Cute As A Button members  will have access to it. 
  5. All info is available well in advance for you to create your projects in time on the DT blog.
  6. Have a Facebook account (this is where our DT chats and where I post our files and sponsor images).
  7. Have a personal blog to post about each new challenge/mid-challenge inspiration, and link back to the challenge.
  8. Post you DT Badge on your blog's sidebar.
  9. Comment on your assigned numbers (no more than 2-3)
  10. Vote on DT top picks at the end of each challenge (once a month)
  11. Most importantly.  Promote Cute As A Button images wherever you can! (Pinterest, Facebook, Magazines, Blogs, etc.)

This is an open call for now until all available spots are filled. We are currently looking for at least 4 people.
If you have any questions at all, please contact me by email - cuteas_a_button@yahoo.com
If any of you, our loyal readers, would like to advertise the DT call for us on your own individual blog. we would sincerely appreciate the shout out.


This DT Call is open to everyone - international applicants welcome, no previous design team experience necessary. The call will stay open through January 15th or until all spots have been filled.   

I look forward to reading your applications and beautiful creations and can't wait to add you to our team!

xoxo

Valou - "Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

Hello everybody!

I used some paper " blue Bazzil Cardstock " and some paper "Action". On edges, I added die-cuts two " Border - Snowflakes " that I realized with a dies " Noor! Design ".

I colorized it with the following ink " Distress ":

- Ink "Distress Salty Ocean".
- Ink "Distress Picked Raspberry".
- Ink "Distress Pumice Stone".
- Ink "Distress Mowed Lawn".
- Ink "Distress Fayded Jeans".

Under the image, I stuck two "Tags" realized with a dies " Crafty Sentiment ". I decorated one of "Tag" with a piece of rope and a small bell.


For the decoration, I added the following flowers:

- Pink Rose (25 mm).
- White Rose (30 mm) (WOC).
- Blue carnation (WOC).
- White and lilac Rose (20 mm) (WOC).
- White bays(berries) (WOC).
