July 2015 - January 2016 Design Team Call
Closing 15th April 2015!

Hello lovely followers!  Helen here with an extra post to advertise our 
DESIGN TEAM CALL!  Please have a read & send in your application 
if you feel you would be an asset to us here at Scrap Around The World!! 

 We are a lovely friendly team & have a great time behind the scenes!  

As well as that I have secured amazing discounts from our sponsors for
 the ladies at SATW & you get to benefit from these throughout your term 
with us!

As we are an INTERNATIONAL challenge site we'd love to see some
 applications from the USA!  We have only ever had one American on
our team & we'd love more!  Same goes with all the South American
countries where we have had very little representation in the past.

Scandinavian countries too - please do apply!!  
And Asian countries are also most welcome! 
 We can only be as good as our team so it is up to YOU to represent your 
country if you are a rising star or one who is already shining brightly! 

 If you are already a regular player here then sending in your application 
will take only minutes.  We like to work in advance at SATW so our call 
is only open for a couple of weeks & we want to make our decisions
 & get on with planning for the rest of 2015 so if you are keen to raise 
your profile apply now!  


Do you have what it takes to be a SATW ambassador? 

We are looking for a few talented designers to add to our team, 
to start 1st June 2015. Term ends 31st Jan 2016
 {not incl. Dec 2015 when we are closed.} 

You need to be capable of creating layouts, art journal pages & spreads
 & canvases & take sharp, light-filled photos of your work.  You need to
 have a consistent, signature style & a drama-free persona with a great
 work ethic, & never miss a deadline! 

You need to be popular online & have a Facebook account 
(personal, public or both) & active Pinterest & Instagram accounts. 

 You need to be confident with tutorials, either photo or video, 
be on at least 2 other design teams & post to your blog at least 8 times 
a month, as well as share your work on Instagram, Pinterest & Paper People. 

We require only one project per month but need you to advertise 
for us on Facebook a few times a month, blog all about our challenge
 {including all sponsors & prizes} PIN to our Pinterest board each month
 & comment on 50 entries a month, on a regular weekly basis, as well 
as being active in our FB group.

We are looking for friendly, confident artists to join our vibrant & close-knit team.

 In return for your efforts you will get as much as you put in in terms of satisfaction
 & exposure as well as generous & significant discounts with our sponsors
 throughout your term with us. 

To apply please email HELEN at scrapaddict {at}telkomsa {dot} net

March 2014 Challenge 11 - A Pretty in Pink Mood Board by Alexandra Polyzou

Hello everyone!  GOSH can you believe it is MARCH already?!?  Crazy!!!

Can't actually believe it is here already!!! We had such an AWESOME month 
with a RECORD number of entries!  THANK YOU!!  The ENTIRE Design Team
 at Scrap Around The World works very hard each & every month to bring you

for us this month.  There's no way you won't just ADORE it!


A reminder about our  DESIGN TEAM CALL - click HERE for further details.
  I am not wanting a team with dozens of people.  I know that is "de rigueur"
 at the moment but I love a manageable group of people that can get to know 
each other & feel like an integral & indispensable part of something special 
so I'm being very selective & already have my shortlist.

   Please apply SOON if you are interested as it's getting tougher by the day :)


Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just
 one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  

To be eligible for judging:-

1.   You need to follow our 10 Golden Rules found HERE, which include :-

1)  Sharing the mood board image.

SATW} & LINKING BACK to the current challenge.

3)  Mentioning HOW you were inspired by our mood board.

If receiving comments from some of our Design Team members is important
