Sketches: Creatively Yours announces
a Design Team Call!

Closing Date is January 30, 2012
All scrappers, all over the world, are welcome to apply!
[Current S: CY DT members are asked to wait one term before reapplying. TY so much! ]
How to Apply: 
NOTE: No previous DT experience is necessary! 
  • Send a short bio about your life and scrapbooking.
  •  Mention any other DTs you currently serve on. 
  •  Include a link to your Blog.
  •  Attach a small picture (headshot if possible) of yourself.
  • Send us one LAYOUT or CARD (any size) that you feel best represents your recent work and expresses your talent as a scrapbooker or cardmaker.  Use your creativity and PLAY! 
  • Specify whether you want to be considered for the S:CY Layout Team or the S:CY Card Team.
  • Send your creation and information to: as an email attachment, NO LARGER than 1 mb please.
IMPORTANT~ Please include your name in the file you attach.
  *Successful applicants will be notified by February 5th, 9 PM (AST) by email. :o) 

Design Team Members' Basic Responsibilities: 

*I send out an email very early (1 month before due dates***)  with sketches designated for each week of the next month. 

*DT members choose 2 or 3 sketches (YES: YOU CHOOSE) of the 4-5 sketches sent to you for the whole month. You complete the 2-3 you have chosen and send the creations to me by the noted due dates. They are due back on Wednesdays by midnight AST. I will post a sketch and the matching DT creations at S: CY on the designated Fridays.  Of those 4-5 sketch choices, one will be a card sketch, designed by our Senior Designer, Ann Seleshanko. 
(Please Note: Supply lists for your creations are not necessary unless digital elements are included. Then they must be listed.)
*Comment on the work of your fellow DT members and anyone who provides us with a link to THEIR work. :o) 
*Display our "I Design for" Blinkie on your blog and wherever else permitted.
*Tell others about S: CY and invite visitors to the site.
*Term is 6 months: March 1, 2012- August 31, 2012

(*** Except for March, where the turn-around time will be shorter. That month, since the DT members will just have been notified of their  positions on Feb 5th,  the sketches will be received 3 weeks before the first March due date rather than 4 weeks before.)

  • You'll receive a "Proud Designer for..." blinkie to display.
  • You will be able to choose 2-3 of the 4-5 sketches provided EVERY MONTH. No "ASSIGNMENTS!!" 
  • Your work and your Blog link will receive excellent exposure on our beautiful Sketch Blog when we do our weekly posts. 
  • There will be a "Designer Q & A Spotlight" feature done on each designer on the team. This means more exposure for you and your work! (Participation is optional.) 
  • We have interesting and talented Guest Designers EVERY MONTH! Having your work featured alongside theirs will be a positive experience. 
  • You'll have convenient access to a private DT-only Blog site where communication with the Design Team will take place. 
  • I'll provide you with a well-written letter of reference should you ever need one with regard to your time as a DT Member at S: CY. There is no time limit to this benefit, and I will do it as many times as requested.   

Since we are not affiliated with a store we cannot send out kits or other incentives to our Designers.
