A PILE OF SCRAP! is looking for some new Design Team Members for our next term, running from July 1st/09 to January 1st , 2010!! Come check out our forum and play!!

At A PILE OF SCRAP! we are:
first and foremost, a business but we understand that it's the people who make our business. We are eager to make being on the Design Team as positive an experience as humanly possible for all involved. We are deeply committed to bringing creativity & joy to the lives of those who share in our passion for scrapbooking and have great respect for what others share with us.

You are:
creative, passionate, committed and know the importance of deadlines and also that your best work is what you want others to know you by.
If you are a new scrapper or you've never been on a Design Team before, don't let that stop you from applying. We want to see everyone's work! Show us what you're made of!

* Submit 3 layouts and 1 project per month, or 3 cards and 1 project, or 4 layouts for each monthly kit and complete them on time.
* If requested, submit complete instructions on how to complete lo's or project.
* Participate on our forum at least 4 days per week.
* Participate and help run one online crop during term.
* Create and maintain a personal gallery on our forum.
* Create a weekly challenge that is unique to our forums.
* Create or maintain a blog that is updated at least once a week. Your blog must contain a blinkie, links to other DT members and a link to our forums. If you are not yet a blogger, there is lots of help available!
* Communicate with Owner and Design Team Coordinator about absences due to illness or vacation.
* You will not post pages created for the DT anywhere on the web until they have been published on our Forum first.
* Be available to possibly create a unique layout for forum members – this is a new contest that will be announced soon and more details will follow then. You may not be creating this every month but you do need to be available to do so.
* If you need to terminate your position, please try to give us as much notice as possible so that we can find someone else to take your place in the team.

* Your own customized Design Team Blinkie that you can post on your blog and anywhere else!
* Design Team business cards with the pretty APOS logo on them!
* A scrappy package every month – sometimes with extra goodies shipped out to you or picked up at the store!!
* A store discount!
* The chance to learn from and inspire lots of really cool scrapping ladies!

* 3 of your best pages/cards, one of which needs to be brand new (never ever published anywhere) and created from the sketch found at the bottom of this post. We politely request that you refrain from publishing it elsewhere until you hear back as to whether or not you are invited to join our team. We want that page to be a big surprise to all our faithful forum followers!
* Write a brief blurb about yourself including your scrapbooking interests, as well as links to your blogs/online galleries.
* Please email all submissions to alissa@apileofscrap.ca by Tuesday June 23/o9. We do not have a set number in mind for our DT and look forward to all of you inspiring us to make it huge! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a quick email with them!
