Want to design for us?? DT CALL!!

Hello friends! 
Well the time has come once again! I am looking to add a few new designers to the awesome JSS team! Most of the designers on my team have been with me for a few years now and we have formed a little family. There is nothing as precious as the friendships we form in this industry.

 Have you been wanting to be on a design team but never try out because you think that your work is not "good" enough? I know that many of you are sitting there answering this question with a "yes, thats me"! I am looking for designers who are not afraid to take a leap and are willing to show off their work. If you want to be on the JSS design team, take the leap and let me see what you have! Now keep in mind, I am simple and very laid back. I welcome ALL levels of crafters to try out and I want you to know that ALL levels of crafters have the same advantage of being chosen. I am not going to single out "friends" or people that are "popular" for my design team. I play fair and here is what I am looking for in you first.....

  1. You must have a huge passion for crafting! :)
  2. You have to be outgoing, down to earth, sociable, creative, enthusiastic and human! :)
  3.  You should not be afraid to ask questions :)
  4. Lastly, you should always look to have fun :)

If you have all four of those things...
 then here is what I want you to do. 
TRY OUT!! Yes GUYS & GIRLS are welcome!!

Design Team Responsibilities:

1. You will need to have an active blog. If you do not have a blog, you must have an active Facebook account.

2. You will need to create 2 projects per month. During special occasions and blog hops, you may be required to do an extra project or two for that month. 

3. You will need to advertise on social media for all upcoming challenges, blog hops and guest design spotlights when asked.
 ( Social Media platform preferred is Facebook)

4. You will be required to join our private DT Yahoo Group. If you do not have a Yahoo ID, you will be required to create one. 
This is a FREE account.

5. The term will be for 6 months and will run from May 15, 2017 to November 15, 2017. At the end of the 6 month term, you will have the opportunity to stay on should you choose to. If you do plan 
to leave after your six months, I need a heads up at least one month prior to your term's end. 

What you will receive in return:
1. You will receive an array of digital stamps and cut files from many different companies in the industry.

2. You will receive more exposure on your blog, which will lead to more followers and friends 

3. You will receive an organized environment to find all challenge information, links, sponsor information & friendly chat with your DT sisters/brothers.
