Sweet Design Team Search {Fall 2014}



Welcome to the SWEET search!

We’ve been doing this a while now – so, we’re going to get right to what you need to know to apply – what’s in it for you – what we expect and kinda the basic run down… ready?

Basic info:

Call open: Aug. 9 – 15th

Design Team Term: Sept. 15th – Dec. 31st. {this term is a little longer because of the holiday season}

Looking for: 7-10 new designers ranging from scrapbookers – video gals – card makers – and everything in between. Excited to learn – share – cheerlead – and market!

What you get: 2-5 stamp sets a month depending on the amount released – and a generous discount {40% off} for your WHOLE term.

What we expect: One new release project per stamp set – One educational and exceptional blog post per month – two additional projects per month {blogged on your personal blog} and promoted on our other social media outlets. Blog posts and projects must be completed on time {we expect a HIGH level of communication – if you’re going to be late – you *must* communicate with us – if you’re late without explanation, you’re off the team – simple. as. that.} We also keep a very active Facebook group – where all our information is shared and used. So, having a Facebook account is a must.

We’re a fun group of ladies – passionate about the paper craft industry. We’re understanding, flexible, and have worked on creating a very organized and easy to follow design team. We welcome all crafters of all levels – and we’d love to consider YOU!

This is a great time for us to let you know that 80% +++ of our decision is based upon quality of photography. Below is a sample of the basic level of photography that we need. We suggest you take one of your photos and set it next to this one – before you submit an application.  {and this might be a peek at what you’d be working with in Sept!}


If you think, YEP – I got that…

Here’s what we need from you. {email this info to us at info@sweetstampshop.com}

{please don’t skip any of these – if you do, your application might not be considered. If we have to figure out your blog address b/c you didn’t include it – you’ll probably just go in the ‘no’ pile – #sorryitstrue}

1. NAME | ADDRESS | EMAIL | BLOG ADRESS (you don’t *need* a blog – but, you do need a way for us to see what you create – so a flicker or a gallery or something like that)

**International peps can apply – but, are responsible for some of the postage fees depending on location.

2. LINK to a blog post that would be an example of what you would post on the Sweet blog. This should include some education – either a tutorial – or a review – or anything that you think people want to know more about.

3. Favorite social media? Take a moment to ‘friend’ Nicole Rixon – so she can see how you use Facebook to promote your design work. Also, it’s ok too if you prefer twitter – pinterest – instagram – we’re OPEN! Tell us what you love – and show us how you’re active.

4. Attach ONE card, layout, project – using SWEET {or something similar in style – cutesy – fun – whimsical} that would be the standard project we could expect from you. Doesn’t need to be new for this call… just something that shows us you could work with our product. {while we think mixed media is awesome… if that’s what you do – show us how you’d make that work with our images! – We’re embracing the CUTE – can you?}

5. Owning Sweet Stamps isn’t a ‘must’ – but, it helps! How many sweet stamps do you own? If you don’t own any, are you willing to either invest in some stamps {using your design team 40% discount} OR are you willing to work with digitals?!

Call closes midnight on the 15th – Designers will be contacted either way by the 20th, if not sooner.

Good luck and thank you for applying!!

N. {and the WHOLE *Sweet* team}
