Hi everyone! I'm excited to be working for this company and to be heading up this dt call! Even though it's NEW to the US...the company has been around for a long time. It's the baby company to a HUGE company that has been around since the 1700's!!(more to come...I'm such a tease, I know! LOL)

 I'm going to make this easy for ya. Here's what we are looking for:

I am looking for 20-25 design team members (some will also be company educators) to join my 2012 team. The main product is embossing powders but there are other products such as stamps.
I'm looking for happy positive designers that can create projects of all kinds: cards, layouts, and mixed media projects.

 --each designer will commit to a 12 month term.
--Each designer will commit to creating THREE projects a month: There should be at least one layout and one card. I would like to see a variety of different book projects from each designer every so often. If you were to create a book project that would equal out to three projects for the month.
--You will create a HOW TO blog post ONCE in your 12 month term. We will assign you a date.
--You must have an active blog to promote our company and willing to share at any of your social medial groups.
--You may be asked to create for our trade shows so projects would need to be shipped. (some projects may be kept for future shows)

--each designer will have their bio/picture on our website.
--each designer will receive products every quarter.
--each designer will have the opportunity to DEMOnstrate at their local scrapbook, stamp, and or craft store and receive an hourly payment($ will blow your mind!) PLUS 10% commission of ALL sales. (will explain more to those that make the team--awesome plan!!)
--teaching classes at your stores will be encouraged and we will help provide you with the products that you need!!
--Payment will be given to all projects approved for the trade shows.

Pamela said... do we even know if we like the products? Any more of a hint coming?? ;)

Suzy West said...

Lol, hey Pamela!! We specialize in embossing powders! Lots of beautiful colors!! Trust me you'll love them! Lol
We also are releasing stamps.

Laura O'Donnell said...

this sounds like it could be a great DT opportunity but I'm also a little puzzled that the name of the company isn't being shared

Suzy West said...

GREAT's my answer. LOL

The reason I haven't given the name yet is because they are already outside the US but the products that we are working on will be different and we don't want to confuse you so we are working on a temporary website.

The main company has been around since the 1700!! This baby company has been around for 2 years overseas, doing really good...great actually! That's why they are offering more than most dt's! It's quite exciting!!

Hope that helps. If you have more questions please feel free to ask here or email me directly at


Laura O'Donnell said...

OK, that makes sense. thanks!

Suzy, on the Design Team Call page, I have to say that I chuckle when I see the WHO and then it says "Can't say yet" That is just too funny!
