Simply Obsessed is at it again. We are looking for new Design Team members to serve an 8 month term. Like the name says, we are obsessed about scraping, crops, challenges, chatting and making new friends. So if that sounds like the place you want to be, come on over. We are looking for designers that::
-have a variety of styles and use new and up-to-date techniques
-are highly involved in various scrapbooking communities
-online with a wide reach to promote Simply Obsessed
-are fun, energetic and positive
What’s involved in being a DT member for Simply Obsessed??
Agree to a 8 month term, designing 6 out of the 8 months (November 08-June 09)
Submit at least 3 projects each month you design. Two MUST be LOs and the other can be an altered item, a card or another LO. All must use the featured monthly kit with minimal use of other supplies. All projects must be scanned or pictured and emailed to us to post in our gallery. If you take a picture-background noise must be kept to a minimum or cropped out.
You will be expected to be active on the message board and in the gallery to help our community grow. DAILY MESSAGE BOARD participation is a MUST. Message board participation may be monitored with possible # of posts required weekly-if we feel participation becomes a problem. We do not like to set a number of post in the forums but just know if chatting in the forums and communication is not one of your strong points then this call may not be for you.
We ask that you contribute at least one challenge, article, or tips and techniques for our online newsletter per month. Assignments will be given once the DT has been chosen.
All DT members will rotate weeks and you will be responsible for QOTD, SQOTD, Monday Mojo, SO Spotlight, etc on the message board) DT members will also rotate months in coordinating a monthly contest to be held at SO.
Promote SO on Willow Traders, Kit Peas and other message boards that are not in direct competition with SO and through blogs.
SODT members may be on other DTs but may not promote the companies they work for on the SO forums unless the other company is a manufacturer or other business not in direct competition with SO.
