Friday, June 11, 2010 is looking for a Guest Designer

Are you interested in being a guest designer? We are seeking super talented scrapbookers to make layouts for some of our daily steals.

Here's the details:

We need 2 crafty people to design layouts using some of our kits. The guest designer's layouts will be used on our site to "show off" that day's steal. We will need pretty quick turnaround, so if we mail you a kit, we will need images of your layouts within a few days (sometimes longer, we will let you know).

We will showcase a new person's talent each month, so this time we are seeking someone for July & August. Then we will search again in August for the fall months.

What's in it for you?

Free steals! We will send you 2-3 kits for free to design with...all we need in return is images of your work. Also, free publicity...we will link to your blog and showcase your projects on our site, blog & facebook page. We may even throw in our very own Yudu "I play with scissors" t-shirt for you to look fashionably crafty in :)

If you are interested, please upload some examples of your work onto our facebook page or link us to it using the comments section of our blog. We need all entries by June 20th.
