Happy Spring, everyone! Or is it? haha It's still pretty cold up here in NH and we're waiting for it to warm up a notch.. or 5. ;) We just finished birthday season at our house. My husband and both sons' birthdays are within 3 weeks of each other (18 days actually) so it's always a crazy time for us. My younger son turned 10 yesterday so it was a milestone one for him!
Other BIG news on my end is that I'm opening a small brick and mortar shop! WOOO HOOO!!! I signed the lease April 1st and am planning the GRAND OPENING for May 5th. There is SO much to do, but it's very exciting. Amanda has been here with me since Wednesday helping me input everything into the website and physically pricing everything. It is a chore for sure! I am so thankful to have her help because I couldn't do it alone.
With the change of seasons also comes the changing of the Design Team. We've loved having all of the newest members join us this past term and we hope you found their projects inspiring. We're looking for 5 new members to join our team for the upcoming term. See details below!
Please send us 3-5 samples of your most recent creations to butterflyinkersDT@gmail.com. Your samples can be cards, scrapbooking layouts and/or pocket style pages or any other paper crafting projects. If you've applied for the team before, PLEASE make sure you're sending NEW artwork. We'd also like links to your online galleries, blogs, YouTube channels, etc., anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past and tell us a little about yourself in a short bio. It is NOT necessary that you have been on any Design Teams, I have had quite a few newbies join our team and they've been a great addition!!!
This is a 4 month commitment starting in May and going through August so if you love spring, summer, flowers/floral, sunshine and rainbows (me, me, ME!!!), this could be the term for you! You must be willing to create 4 projects per month with one blog post per week. Sometimes an additional project will be asked for and appreciated. We have a monthly mood board that we're trying to incorporate somehow so the extra project would likely be related to that. We do ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 4 month term. We are always trying to expand and gain new customers as growth is mandatory for a small business so sharing links to the shop is required at a minimum of 3 times a week via various social media outlets. This is a BIG part of the DT's job and we appreciate you helping us get the word out. You can post links to your own blog posts, projects shared on FB/IG, a teammates fabulous creation, your favorite current products, sales, etc. There is ALWAYS something to share and again, a main part of the "job".
In return for your creations and promotion, you will get $30.00 worth of FREE product each month. In addition, you will also get a 25% discount to use as much as you'd like throughout the term. The shop is FULL of fabulous products with more coming in regularly!
If it sounds like a good opportunity for you, please send us your application! The deadline is April 25, 2018. We will go over all the applications and choose the best fit for the shop shortly after.
