DT call at 3SB


I can't believe it, but it's time to have a design team call again! Here is the list of rules. Please send all applications to by October 10th.

3 Scrappy Boys is taking applications for several positions on our Design Team.
Design Team Requirements:

• 3SBDT members will receive one free kit every other month and will use the kit for designing layouts, cards, projects etc. On the month the 3SB DT member receives their kit, a minimum of 3 layouts must be submitted and 1 card, or comparable projects must be uploaded to the appropriate place in the gallery. The kit should be used to its fullest extent.

• 3SBDT members will contribute to a monthly newsletter. Members will rotate assignments which will include but not be limited to technique articles, product spotlights, seasonal and holiday ideas, altered project ideas, etc. Those members that are not on “kit cycle” may also contribute to the newsletter as they are able.

• 3SBDT members will maintain a daily presence on the message board and gallery. This includes initiating discussions, responding in discussions, leaving gallery feedback and uploading non-DT work to the member’s own gallery.

• 3SBDT members will be required to participate in a maximum of 1 large online crop during their term. Depending on the work required for the crop, extra compensation may be given.

• 3SBDT members will be required to post 1 kit challenge on their assigned month.

• 3SBDT members will be required to lead various other small challenges and contests (i.e. layouts of the day, mini stash challenges, etc)

• 3SBDT members will promote 3SB on Willow Traders, Kit Peas and other message boards that are not in direct competition with 3 SB. 3SBDT will also be required to post to both the 3SB blog and facebook page.

• 3SBDT members may be on other DTs but may not promote the companies they work for on the 3 SB forums unless the other company is a manufacturer or other business not in direct competition with 3 SB.

• 3SBDT members are asked to post kit reveals and peaks of their DT work with 3SB kits on their blogs.

Design Team members will be on a probationary period for 3 months. At the end of the 3 months, assuming there are no issues with team participation, the design team member will be offered a permanent contract for a period of 6 months and will begin receiving a Design Team discount for purchases in the store. DT team members are immediately eligible to purchase kits on their “off-cycle” months at a discount of 25% off.

To apply, please send the following to :
o 5-7 examples of your work including layouts, cards and altered projects
o a list of other design teams you are currently on and have been on in the past. Include the dates you have been involved with other design teams. An email address for a contact person (i.e team leader, business owner, etc) is strongly encouraged.
o links to any of your online galleries

Application deadline is OCTOBER 10th. New members will be notified privately approximately October 15th and will be announced publicly shortly thereafter. New team members will begin their assignment with the November 2010 kits.

She is here :)

Olivia Grace was born August 24th at 3:35 AM. Birth story to come soon :)

crop at 3 Scrappy Boys!

Here is what the owner Heather has to say in a newsletter she sent out!
Hope everybody is having a great weekend! School has restarted here in North Carolina and will soon be in session for most folks here in the states, so we are going to have a back to school crop! It starts September 8th on the forums. There will be classes, challenges, prizes, and of course lots of chatter. We would love to have you come participate.

To help everybody prepare, I have decided to have a sale. Everything in the store is on sale! There is a new clearance section that has items 40-50% off, including some 2009 kits that can be found on the last few pages. All kits are marked down 10-25% off, including the August embellie add-on kits. I even went all out and included grab bags, which means you are saving over 65% off retail!

Other news-the September kits are chock full of new stuff from CHA summer and although most of it is here, some is still missing. So, September kits will not ship on the 1st as they usually do, but they will go out as soon as the last few products arrive. Last, but not least, there are several new items in the store from My Little Shoebox, Maya Road, and BoBunny, with much more to come, so keep checking back!

We really want our back to school crop to be a lot of fun, which means we want to see lots of people come join in! If you are not registered on the forums, go register and plan to join us and help us spread the word. Let your friends know via blogs, facebook, message boards, challenge blogs, etc. about both the crop and the sale, then come join us on September 8th!

I hope you join us!
