i'm super swamped with freelance work right now, but wanted to poke my head in to pass some exciting news in the industry along to all my scrapbooking friends.
so here we go..........
First: Little Yellow Bicycle is looking for some short-term designers!
Here's the details:
They are forming a "Cycling Team." With each new collection they're going to pick a few new designers (about 3-5 per collection). Those designers will join the Cycling Team for the month after the collection is released. They'll send you some product (not the entire collection, but lots of goodies!). This is not a long-term design team commitment - just some fun and ... free stuff!
Here's what's required from a Cyclist:
1) Make ONE project with what they send you - a layout, some cards, a mini album, an altered item...whatever makes you happy!
2) Send some pictures of it, and a little write-up or how-to of how you created it.
3) Post it on your blog (if you're not a blogger, that's not required, but it is preferred ... so if you don't have a blog, get one of your blogger friends to post it on their blog!) They'll post it to the LYB blog too, of course!
That's it! Sound like something you're interested in?
Tryouts for the team are starting RIGHT NOW! If you want to join, just send a few samples of your best stuff (you don't have to use LYB products, but of course, we'd love it if you did) to email@example.com.
Little Yellow Bicycle will announce the first two teams for Head of the Class and Get Your Game On next Wednesday, September 21st.
Second: There's a new die-cut company called iDiecut!
iDiecut.com offers the latest and most popular shapes and designs for your personal die cutting machine---in my case, the Silhouette.
You will find many of the industry’s well-known designers and manufacturers represented at this site. I did some poking around over there this morning and let me tell you, there is an amazing selection of super cute shapes.
What's even better? There's a coupon code for 25% off your purchase now through September 30th. At checkout, just enter: welcome25
hurry........go tell all your friends! :)
and don't forget to make today AWESOME!
