Our blog is expanding and we really need some help! We are looking for keen papercrafters with or without their own craft blogs who first and foremost like our templates and downloads and would like to get a bit more involved in what we do.
I love to design and create but often it is nice to get another person's persective on something, people see and experience the world in different ways and this shows in the things they make.
So what can we offer you as a design team member?
Well, as this site is intended to be an area for creative expression, we do sell our products but at a very low price and really just enough to cover the annual site costs. Therefore, initially we are looking for 'community designers' who would be happy just to receive free downloads and use them to create projects for us to feature here on the site.
As a Mementoes designer you would also get any new downloads to play with before they are launched on the site too! You wouldn't have to spend heaps of time and certainly no pressure, we would just ask that when you are sent the new product to play with, that you upload some photos and project notes into the photo gallery within one week of receiving it. We would then feature your project on the blog too. Not too much to ask really! You also get to feature the project on your own blog, so you would be creating content for yourself at the same time.
Another benefit, would be the opportunity to promote your own blog on our site. With several hundred visitors a week and lots more when new products are launched, you can expect plenty of links back to your blog!
So what do you have to do to become a designer?
If you like to experiment with different types of craft download products including templates, digital stamps and printable images and you are interested in being part of our design team, all you have to do is send us some details about yourself and your crafting interests and some photos or links to your work.
If you have a blog, then send us the address so we can see what you are involved with. Don't worry if you don't have a blog, we are still interested in hearing from you!
Each time a new product is featured, we would send it to you and you just need to create a project for us and upload or email back a photo and some project notes, including materials used and time taken to do.
We launch products every month or every other month so this shouldn't take up much time and of course you can use it on your own blog too. We just ask that you ensure that the project is featured on our site first before you launch it on your own blog.
You will need to be happy for the project to be featured on our blog and any other forums or blogs with links back to our site, although your name as a Mementoes Design Team Member will always be attached to any post made.You may also feature the project on other forums and blogs you visit but you will need to ensure that there is a link or mention back to our site too.
When your project is featured on our site, it will be linked back to your blog and we would expect links back to our site on your blog post too so we both benefit. Simple really!
So if you would like to get involved or you would like to find out more, just drop us a line!
