NEW CALL: Punk Rock Scrappers Design Team Call

Deadline: Saturday, February 28, 2009

Punk Rock Scrappers Design Team Call
All applications must be emailed to the DT Coordinator by Feb. 28, 2009, midnight Central Standard Time (US)
Punk Rock Scrappers needs some talented and unique scrappers to join the design team!
We are looking for anywhere between 3-7 design team members to join us.
We are specifically looking for designers who are a little bit different, a little quirky and offbeat. Definitely not your typical scrapbooker!
If your layouts and projects tend to be nongeneric, incorporate lots of non-scrap-related items or use the usual items in new and funky ways, or you're simply not afraid to work outside of your comfort zone, this is a great opportunity!
Are your layouts considered a little too risque for other sites or you feel like it's just not what everybody ELSE thinks a good layout looks like? Not here!
At Punk Rock Scrappers, you can go on being your naughty artistic self!
You do not have to have purple hair, pirecings, and tattoos on your face, or even like punk rock! This is all about having attitude and originality!
It's about flipping the bird to the status quo and daring to ignore your critics!

To apply:
-Submit two (2) layouts, of any size. They can be new, they can be old, we just want to see your style! You may also, if you like, submit an alternate project in addition to the two layouts, such as a card, mini-book, collage, or altered art, etc. though this is not required to apply. There are no restrictions! Have fun, get messy, and create!
-In addition to the first two layouts, submit one (1) NEW layout showcasing your personality. This can be about virtually anything! It can be about your personal philosophy in life, your crazy antics, something incredible you did, how you broke out of the mold, your loud rebellious side, a tattoo you got while not entirely sober, how you retain your sense of self even after becoming a full-time Mom... whatever! Be creative and have fun with this! We want to see how you RAWK!
-Write a few paragraphs about yourself! What's make you not the typical scrapbooker? We want to get a real feel for your personality, so babble on!
-List links to your blogs, galleries, resume, etc. So we can spy on you!
-Include your city and country (you do not need to give us your full address).
International applicants are welcome to apply!
-Email all of these to Drew (DT coordinator) at by February 28, 2009, midnight, Central Time U.S.

The terms are six months long, with the requirement of two layouts or projects every month, due one day before the challenge is revealed. You must link to us in your blog and forums wherever allowable, within reason of course. Don't worry, you do not have to become our spam-bot. Just let people know that you design for us!
As a designer, you will receive specific products, scrap kits, and random non-scrap items to incorporate into your challenges.
You are required to leave comments for each participant's layout/project.
You absolutely must have fun! Or else!
Thanks for taking an interest in our site, and we hope you consider applying! Lack of experience is not a problem, and can actually be considered a good thing, because then we know you are not overextending yourself and can devote more of your creative energies to our challenges, although we also welcome experienced applicants!
If you have questions, don't hesitate to email us!
