DT Call (yes you read that right!!! :-))

Hello Crafters,
It's been almost 2 years since the last DT Call, and there haven't been many during the 4 year history of the Live & Love Crafts store, simply because DT Members tend to want to stay on the team, and unlike many others, I see no reason for regularly exchanging my design team members.

But now the rare opportunity to join the Live & Love Crafts Design Team has arisen!
There are two positions available, with start date ASAP/ May, 1st.

This DT Call will stay open until Saturday, April, 30th, 12PM/NOON (GMT).

So if you love everything vintage & shabby chic, and these are the kind of products you reach for when crafting....

...then I'd love to hear from you!

Live & Love Crafts, which opened up in June 2012 is the ORIGINAL craft store catering for crafters devoted to vintage & shabby chic crafts. It’s a well-established store that has carried the best vintage brands and products ever since opening, and has continued to expand its product portfolio and kept up with crafting trends. Brands we stock are; Maja Design, Pion Design, Melissa Frances, Prima Flowers Marketing, Wild Orchid Crafts, Sagen Vintage Design, Wycinanka, Stempelglede, and Ranger.

* The DT Call is open to crafters worldwide.

It doesn't matter if your preference is to colour images, to scrap vintage images, to create LOs or to alter items, as long as you love to work with papers, you are welcome to apply.

*You must be able to take good clear shots of your cards/projects.

* Ideally you’re not affiliated with any other craft retail store in the UK, and if you are, it mustn’t be a store carries the same brands as Live & Love Crafts. Apart from this, you can be on how many different challenge teams/ vendor teams as you like to, just as long as you feel you have the time.

* Create one project/ month specifically for the Live & Love Crafts' Challenge (1st of every month)

*Leave comments on challenge participants' blogs according to a commenting rota

* "Virtual socialising" with the other team members in the DT Facebook Group

I know from experience that it can feel daunting to apply for a DT position and for that very reason I'm not asking you to advertise that you have applied on your blog or to link up underneath this post.

Instead I'd just like you to drop me, Sandy, a short e-mail: info(at)liveandlovecrafts(dot)com and tell me why you would like to join the Live & Love Crafts' DT. (You can write in any of the Scandinavian languages, German or of course English).

Please also tell me a little bit about yourself, i.e. what you love about the vintage style, what type of crafting you do, what your favourite brands are, any other DTs you're currently on etc.
Please do not feel though that you can't apply just because you don't have any previous Design Team experience. That is not required to join the LLC DT.

Please include a link to your blog.

Please also attach or provide links to three-five of your recent favourite projects.

If you have any questions at all, you're of course most welcome to contact me.

 I regret that due to time constraints, and the large number of applications usually received, I may not be able to respond to unsucessful applicants. Thanks for your understanding.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hugz, Sandy
