What We Are Looking For:
We are looking for the following characteristics in our Design Team Members:
*Ability to create layouts with a range of skill from more basic to more advanced
*Creative use of products and the ability to use the kit materials but also think out of the box

We want to have an opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know our online community. This will help to assure a good fit. (Please do not join our kit club during the application process – it is not a determining factor in the selection process.)
*Designers are required to submit a minimum of 3 layouts and an altered project or two-three cards each month. At least one of the layouts each month must be a two-page spread. Layouts need to be done in time for the mid-month reveal on the 15th of each month.
