Designer & GD CALL

Well, it is that time again and a lot of my lovely designers will be moving on. It also saddens me (tear tear) to see all the wonderful talents move on, but in doing so I get the opportunity to showcase other wonderful talents as well.

Paper Cupcake Stamps is looking for BOTH Designers and monthly Guest Designers to join our team for the remaining of the year. Guest Designers into next year as well. Designers would start showcasing on July 11th with the last project of the year showcasing on Dec. 20th. You need to already maintain an existing blog with weekly posts showcasing projects you’ve made using rubber stamps or digital stamp images/papercrafting.

Both Designers & Guest Designers are expected to:

• Create one weekly project using our original Paper Cupcake digital images
• Post weekly to your blog using Paper Cupcake creations while following
our weekly Monday challenges. Each team member will work with the
monthly freebie and select a minimum of 3/4 images for their month to
work with for the remaining challenges of the month. The minimum
required number of projects per month is 1 project per weekly
challenge for our challenge blog.
• Support Paper Cupcakes customers by regularly commenting on their
Paper Cupcake creations when time allows.
• Display the Paper Cupcakes DT/GD badge and link to store site and DT
members up to your blog.
• Upload Paper Cupcake creations to Split Coast Stampers and CDAC gallery
on a regular basis, preferably at least every few weeks and/or any
other galleries you regularly upload to.
• Respect the prohibition of sharing digi image files. Sharing files would
be considered grounds for termination.
• Be on time with all project deadlines.
• Have good photos of projects with your personal watermark on them.

If you’re interested in joining our team for either Designer or a monthly Guest Designer, please contact me by e-mail with "Design Team Call" or "Guest Desinger" in the subject line so I will open the e-mail. Please contact me (Nina) no later than June 24th at:

magicintheair@att.net (Put Designer/Guest Designer in the subject line)

Please include the following information in the body of the e-mail and any other information you would like to include:

• Full name
• Location
• A link to your blog & any gallery and/or website and SCS gallery link

Also please indicate which position you are interested in.

The GD term begins at the beginning of the assigned month and ends that same month. (4-5 weeks, depending on the month)

I would like to have all new DT members chosen by June 26th so I can get all the information out to them and have all questions answered prior to leaving on vacation June 30th-July 10th.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Magical Monday - Pick Two

Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.netfor the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Sharon

Sharon please send me your choice of 2 images and your e-mail address that you would like them forwarded to at magicintheair@att.net and I will get them out to you. You can find a full listing of all the images here. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week Gloria Westerman brings us our challenge. She wants you to pick two of these elements: Flowers, Ribbons, Pearls/Gem and/or die cut and use them on your project in any way. It's that easy peasy, so get creating!

You do not need to use one of our digital images to play along, but of course we would love to see a Paper Cupcakes image used. Please note: Everyone that uses a Paper Cupcake's image will be entered into the drawing twice to win.

If you don't have a Paper Cupcake's image and would like to use one you can find the below image "A Little House" HERE. The sentiments are also included in this download! OR You can always pick your own out at the Paper Cupcake's store which you can find HERE.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates and follows this weeks challenge and links their work back here will get to pick two images of their choice from my store Paper Cupcakes.

Now for the oh so talented...

Also, I have been having trouble posting on other blogs. It always appears as though I am off line and can't post and it asks me to sign in. I do and then I go to post my comment and then asks me to pick my program as though I am not signed in again (((ugh))), but then when I go to sign in it takes me to my dashboard and acts/ appears I am signed in, but if I am not on my dashboard, it appears as though I am signed off. Which is why I think I am having trouble posting on other's blogs. I don't have the little pencis on my blog anymore to edit from my blog page, because once again when I am not on my dashboard I appeared signed off! I have also been having some trouble in the compose area as well when making my blog posting. It wants to lump all my pictures and paragraphs altogether, so I have only been able to compose my postings in the "edit html" area. If anyone could help me figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. I can't seem to figure out how to trouble shoot it. You can send me any kind of direction/and or links for help to magicintheair@att.net. Thanks bunches in advance if you can help me trouble shoot any of this.
