DESIGN TEAM CALL - FEB 2017

WE NEED YOU!

Here at Digi Choosday we need new Design Team members for our lovely fun team! You can be from anywhere in the world.
We have an amazing team of creative minds here at Polkadoodles with the focus on TEAM and not ME!

We need COLOURISTS AND GENERAL CARD MAKERS!
We are looking for good all round card makers who have a flair for what they do, whether you love colouring, using templates to make shaped cards, boxes, mixed media, you love using dies etc - as this is a digital team you need to have a good standard of Colouring skills but we don't mind what medium you use and you can make ANY style of card, we are looking for people who are versatile and like to use different things in their card making, NOT JUST Colourists, so if colouring isn't your thing we still want to hear from you too! 

The DT is expected to inspire creativity with our challenge followers so you must have good skill levels and be able to produce good quality photographs to showcase your work.

1. COMMITMENT: Initially a 3 month term, with a review to stay longer
2. WEEKLY blog post, every Tuesday with a requirement to work at least 2 weeks in advance (more is ideal). You are required to link your posts.
3. YOU MUST HAVE A BLOG
4. POST & COMMENT: You must be prepared to regularly engage with the team and commit to rotas for posting and leaving comments on the challenge entries each week, all of which is done on a very organised rota system which includes the use of social media platforms such as Blogger, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram etc.
5. As this is a digital team you must be prepared to use your home printer to print off digital images, including COLOUR prints of papers/decoupage sheets etc. This is what we do - if you can't print good quality colour, please don't apply. We expect you to use our papers, not your own, we have tons of downloads and this is what you will promote for us.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: 27th FEBRUARY 2017

You will be generously rewarded with digital products which more than compensates you for the work you will do for the team. In addition we often have extra tasks which are optional and voluntary, such as being involved in new product launch parties and making physical samples for launches which means your work can be shown on TV.

You will be part of a really fun team of fabulous people and will be welcomed and supported all the way. We run a tight ship and we have no room for personal ego's, we're just here to craft and spend our time enjoying what we do and inspiring others.

You can read more about our teams HERE, but if you'd like to apply we'd love to hear from you.
Just email us HERE and tell us briefly why you think you should be on the team and send us links to your blog, facebook etc and some of your most RECENT, favourite work so we can get a feel for your style and what you like to make...

We will reply to everyone that applies within 3 weeks of the closing date - we look forward to hearing from you!

Jane S - This week I have shown some love with the wonderful Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses Collection!

Julie - Love is truly in the air as I have also used an image from Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses Collection, called 'True Love' and coloured with Copics.
AnjieFor this make I used the ever so cute Lily Love Bug Collection. I printed the pre-coloured image onto glossy photo paper at 8cm high so I could cut her out with the Bubbleicious frame die from Polkadoodles. I also printed the love word onto the same paper. I mounted the topper and the word onto 3D foam to make them stand out. I added the red mat to pull out the red from adorable Lily.
Monica- When it comes to "show some love" Twiggy & Toots Owls Collection is always the right choice. I made a graduated scene card with a lovely Toots precoloured image, embellishments, papers and sentiment, all from that collection.


Jane- I am showing some love this week with lots of hearts....and what better collection to use that Winnie in Wonderland!  Image was colored with Copics and the smallest of the Elegant Nest dies was used to set her apart from the background paper...

Monica - For this romance challenge, I wanted to tell you a love story. To achieve that I used almost all the characters from Work & Play 9.-Love & Kisses. The beautiful backgrounds are from an old Polkadoodles collection, "Boundless Love".


Jane P-  Love is in the air at PD.  For this weeks creation I decided to use the Rose Budd Collection.  I also used other yummy products from the PD store.  Head over to my blog for all the details.


Jane S - I'm saying it with a basket of flowers this week and have used some of the awesome Polkadoodles Dies and paper from the stunning Belle Papillon Collection.

Julie - What is more romantic than a Wedding?  My Brother is tying the knot this Summer, so I have taken the opportunity to make a Wedding card from him and his Bride.  Image is from Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses.  My main image is coloured with Copics.

Anjie - When I heard this challenge I immediately thought of using the Lily Love Bug collection, and a wooden heart I got in the sales last year. So here is my make.

So lets see what our fantastic DT have made this week...
AnjieFor this card I've used the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter collection.
I've kept this card simple by using one of the scenes for the background, and cutting a tree, 2 snowmen and 3 faux brads. I've mounted them all onto 3D foam to make them pop. 

Julie - My make this week, is a last minute Christmas Present , a no glue mini mug, decorated with elements from Octavia Frosted Winter and Winnie Winter Land.
LoriFor my card this week, I printed the pre-colored image and papers from the Winnie Winterland Big Kahuna Download collection and cut it out with a stitched square die, layered them on red and then simply popped it up.  I kept it very CAS as this little coffee stand/winter scene had enough cuteness all on it's own!
Jane S - I love this gorgeous Angelberry Hugs image, and who wouldn't need a hug on a chilly winter's day! The papers are from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs and I have also used some of the scrummy Polkadoodles Dies.
Rebecca - This is such a beautiful image. I printed the image and cut it out and chose elements from Winnie in Winterland Big Kahuna the image to pick some die cuts to incorporate into my card and completed my card with glitter accents
Jane P -For my first card of the New Year I decided to use Winnie in Winterland Big Kahuna digital download collection.  I also could not resists incorporating some of the wonderful dies Super Sprigs and the Ribbon/Gift frames & Corners.  What else would you wish for on a cold winter day!
Monica - When it comes to Winter I have had to use the adorable Octavia Frosted Winter, she is outdoors playing with her lovely husky, that by the way loves the snow.
