We’re looking for all types of artists and welcome anyone who has a passion for rubber stamping to apply! Bring on the Mixed Media Artists, the Card Makers, the Scrapbookers, the Altered Artists, the Scene Stampers… we want you ALL!! International welcome to apply, too!
Our terms last six months. This term will run from January 1st – June 31st and has 8 openings.
Design Team requirements during your six month term are as follows:
1) Regularly promote VLVS! through:
a. online galleries
b. your blog
c. social media like facebook, twitter, youtube, flickr and pinterest
d. and by submitting to publications.
2) Complete a minimum of two (2) projects per month to be posted on the VLVS! blog, always using only Viva Las VegaStamps! images. Your posts must include at least one over all finished photo, one detail photo, a product list with appropriate working links to our online store and a short description on how you completed the project. Keep in mind occasionally you may be asked to follow certain criteria, ie; using a given product, following a theme, or creating for the season. We may also request an additional post in which case you would only be asked to share a project as inspiration with working links to the appropriate stamps. No need for tutorials or step by steps on inspiration posts. It is important you possess the necessary skills to photograph your projects well. We want to see them in their full glory; you should be able to provide well lit, focused, center of attention photos.
3) Participate in the online private facebook group for the team. Important information like schedules, future hops, logos, links and contact information are all kept in the group. I run a lot of ideas by the team and value their honest opinions.
4) Participate in blog hops and/or product swaps. (Some may be on a volunteer basis only)
5) Mail two (2) completed projects to the store for display. This is out of your whole six month term. We love having projects posted all around the store for people to ogle as they peruse through our stamps.
In return VLVS! will:
1) Provide you with regular shipments to keep you fully stocked on supplies, including but not limited to VLVS! Stamps, Miracle Tape, Embossing powder, and any product swap goods.
2) Provide you with a detailed schedule at least 2 weeks in advance.
3) Compensate you for extra work outside of the regular schedule. This will be based upon volunteer projects and any extra hops or swaps outside of said schedule.
4) Regularly promote you and your projects through online social medias, as well as display you and your personal blog address on our company blog.
