Design Team Call


Hey all

The team and i think its about time we had some new faces added to our little BasicGrey Challenges Family, don't you?, so we have decided to run a Design Team Call and we are looking for 4 new members to add to our little Family :)

So here are all the details then :)

(Please be sure to read everything thoroughly before applying)

What We Are Looking For

We are looking for 4 new Design Team Members with a love of BasicGrey just like us :), any and all styles of crafting is welcome :)

How Long The DT Call Is Open

The DT Call will be open for 2 weeks, closing on Saturday the 18th of September at 11.00pm (GMT), all applications must be received by then

How To Apply

To apply all you need to do is to take part in this fortnights challenge here and leave a link to your creation in the Mr Linky Widget at the bottom of this post, please put DT beside your name to try and save confusion to the peeps taking part in this fortnights challenge two posts down.

(Please Note: If the Mr Linky Widget happens to be down, then please post your DT Application in the comments of this post, either by mentioning your entry number from this fortnights challenge so we can find you, or by leaving a link to your creation, Thank You)

If you do not have a blog to link to then by all means feel free to Email Us your Applications :)

DT Requirements

As a DT Member you would be required to take part in our Fortnightly Challenges following the theme of the set Challenge, you will know all of the upcoming challenges in advance, so not to worry, You would also be required to take part in any other events that we may hold, like a Blog Hop for example :) (one of which will be held very very soon)

Part Of Another Design Team

Not to worry, as long as you can commit to the BasicGrey Challenges DT and are not conflicted with other DT work then of course feel free to apply, but please consider the new workload before you apply, the last thing we want is for you to struggle to keep up with the Challenges, this is meant to be fun and stress free, not a job that you feel obliged to do, so again please do keep that in mind :)

No Previous Design Team Experience

Not a problem at all, we welcome all applications whether you have DT experience or not, in fact we would encourage peeps with no previous DT experience to try out for our Design Team, more so over those that do, we want to give everyone a fair chance :)

No Blog

No problem, a blog is not required to be part of the BasicGrey Challenges Family, as long as you have an active Email account so you can send us your DT Creations then that is fine and dandy :)

When The New DT Will Be Announced

The new DT Members will be announced during our upcoming blog hop (date to be announced very very soon), this way we can celebrate our new Family Members in style :), and yes that means you will be required to take part in the blog hop, we hope that is ok? (for other DT requirements please see above)


A few things you might like to know :)

Are You Associated With BasicGrey?

Sadly no :(, we are not in anyway associated with BasicGrey, We are just crafters who have a love of their wonderful crafty goodies like many of you :)

Do I Need To Use BasicGrey Products?

Well ….. yes, this is a BasicGrey Challenge Blog after all, so you will need to use at least one item of BasicGrey on each of your fortnightly challenge creations, this means you will be required to have at least a few BasicGrey products in your collection

Will I Be Given BasicGrey Products To Use In My Design Team Work?

As much as i would love to spoil each of the DT Members with ooodles and ooodles of BasicGrey goodies, truthfully i am afraid my purse wouldn't be very happy with me if i did :(, but … keeping that in mind, i do like to send my lovely BG challenge family members little surprises now and again ;) , but shhhh don't tell my purse lol

Right then, i think everything has been covered :), here is the Mr Linky then :), we look forward to your applications :)
