I know I said I would never do it... but I MUST. Now that I am working with multiple manufacturers, I have multiple booths at the trade shows that need projects and multiple blogs that need projects too. Our little group has gotta grow so I am doing an official Design Team Call.
To be considered for the team, you will need to submit pictures of 5 projects, a "SHORT" essay (500 words or less) titled "Why I will be a great addition to the Donna Salazar Design Team", your scrappy/crafty resume, your bio (please include a short paragraph on "How my friends describe me") and contact information... your phone and e-mail will be necessary for me to contact the new team members.
For the 5 projects, submit what you consider to be your best work (and the projects don't need to be new). Of the 5 projects, 1 should be a layout, 1 should be a card and 1 should be an altered item (you get to decide what the extra 2 projects will be). You can use product from ANY manufacturer on most of the projects but to be seriously considered, at least 1 of your projects should be made with 70% Donna Salazar Designs products and/or tools. IMPORTANT! Make sure you take GOOD photos and please keep your images to approximately 500kb. Knowing how to take good pictures of your projects and being able to re-size your photos gives you an advantage over other submissions.
Before you submit, please keep in mind that as one of my DT members you will be required to create 3 projects using 70% Donna Salazar Designs product and/or tools EACH month. You will be asked to interact with people on the Facebook group page, and twice a year you will be asked to make as many projects as possible for the CHA tradeshows. You will have a TON of support because our team will be working closely with GCD Studios and their DT.
As a DT member you will be able to create with the newest "Donna Salazar Designs" product and/or tools before the public gets a chance to even see them. You will be shipped the unreleased product and/or tools manufactured by Zutter, Spellbinders, Clearsnap and GCD Studios twice a year (before each CHA tradeshow). As a bonus, several projects are usually picked up for publication at each of the shows. You will, of course, need to sign a confidentiality agreement when the time comes.
To Enter, Submit:
- Your 5 photos (500kb)
- Your scrappy/crafty resume
- Your bio (with "how friends describe me" paragraph)
- Your contact information
- Your essay for "Why I will be a great addition to the Donna Salazar Design Team"
E-mail EVERYTHING in ONE e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "DT Call" by midnight Pacific time, on March 15th. I'll be going through each submission and will contact the new Design Team Members by March 31st.
Good Luck and thanks for stopping by! Smooches ~D~
