Creative Team Call - Autumn / Winter 2012 team

Can you believe that nearly 6 months have gone by since our current Creative Team started? And with that, it’s time to add some fresh faces to the team.


I'm looking for an undetermined number of creative team members for the Autumn / Winter 2012 team. These will be mix of old and new.


Requirements:
Please read these carefully, I will not consider any applications that are missing information / requirements.

2. Also include the following in your email:
a. Full name & Country
b. Blog link
c. Do you prefer to scrap in 8.5 x 11 or 12 x 12?
d. A short bio including any current or previous DTs and publications (previous experience isn’t necessary, I am just curious)
e. A list of forums etc. you visit regularly
f. A few short sentences about what you love about Stuck?! and what you can bring to the team.

All entries must be 12 x 12 or 8.5 x 11. I will be selecting a mix of scrappers who create in predominately one size or the other.


Entries are to be emailed to stucksketches@optusnet.com.au. Please put STUCK?! CREATIVE TEAM APPLICATION in the subject line. Please keep your layout size to a maximum 500 x 500px as anything higher will cause my inbox to clog.

All emails must be received by midnight on Sunday January 22nd (AEST). The Creative Team will be contacted by January 31st and will be announced on during early February

Expectations:


* Your term will run from the March 2012 to August 2011 sketches. You will receive your first sketches during the month of February 2012 and your final sketches during the month of July 2012.

* CT members are expected to remain EXCLUSIVE to Stuck?! Sketches for their CT period. We are not able to accept applicants who are current CT members for other sketch blogs / sites. You are free to design for other challenge blogs, just not those who only do sketches.
* You must maintain a current active blog. Word of mouth is the only way people will know about Stuck?! and you must be willing to promote Stuck?! on your blog.
* Positions will be held for a six month period and members will be required to reapply at the end of the six months to continue on.
*CT members should use the Stuck?! blinkie and promote Stuck?! wherever and whenever possible. I want each CT member to be proud to be a member and to spread the word around!!!

December 1st Sketch

Good afternoon!

We are on the downhill count to Christmas now. I hope that you manage to find to time to create during the busy season coming up.

Our Guest Designer this month is the talented Ebony Van Der Starre.


Hi my name is Ebony van der Starre and I have been a huge fan of Stuck sketches for a long time so I am excited to be here as a guest designer! 
I live in Warrnambool Vic with my hubby and two kids. I have been addicted to scrapping now for over 9 years...wow!..sounds like forever when you write it down!!!

I love everything about this craft and I have been extremely blessed to have been given some amazing opportunities over this time. 

I guess i would describe my style as eclectic and grungy. I LOVE bright colors...in fact that's all I use, and paint and mists are a regular feature on my layouts!
