Creative Team Call #3


It’s bittersweet to know that I will soon have to say good-bye to the current Team, as it's now time to open a new call. I hope that you've been as inspired as I have by what the ladies have been creating these past months and I have no doubt you'll continue to be in the future.


First up, if you are a mini flair-loving paper crafter who is enthusiastic about using flair in creative and innovative ways, then I just might have a spot for you. This is a 6-month term beginning October 1st, 2016 and ending March 31st, 2017. You need to be able to create 2 projects each month, which can be scrapbook layouts, cards, Project Life, or mini albums - let your imagination run wild! You do need to have an active, public Instagram to share clear, well-lit photographs of your monthly projects on as well as any other sales and promotions as they occur. If you have a blog, awesome, but it’s not a requirement. Any other social media platforms or galleries that you upload to are also appreciated, but not expected.

During your term, I'll provide the mini flair of your choosing, and you get the flexibility to create and schedule your posts each month. In addition to the mini flair, you'll receive a discount to the entire shop during your term.

To apply, email me at elise(at)feedyourcraft(dot)com with the subject line - Flair CT Application. In your email, please tell me a little about yourself and why you would like to be a part of the team. Also, provide links to your Instagram and blog (if you have one) and 3 recent projects that best showcase your style using flair (any brand is fine). This is open worldwide, but you must have your application in by 11:59pm EDT, September 9th. I'll be in touch with all applicants on the 17th and will announce the Creative Team on October 1st.

Now for the new addition to the Team!


I am also looking for a very small number of creative individuals who are passionate about documenting their stories with 3x4 and 4x6 cards, stamps, and flair. You will be working with kits designed exclusively by Brandi Kincaid. This is a 6-month term beginning October 1st, 2016 and ending March 31st, 2017. You need to be able to share 1 project on release day and then 1 more during each month of your term. Your projects need to be made primarily using the kit (small embellishments and items from your stash may be used) and share clear, well-lit photographs of your projects. You do need to have an active, public Instagram to share your monthly projects on as well as any other sales and promotions as they occur. If you have a blog, awesome, but it’s not a requirement. Any other social media platforms or galleries that you upload to are also appreciated, but not expected.

During your term I'll provide you with each mini kit you'll be working with and you'll receive a discount to purchase any additional items from the shop. There may be the possibility that a quick turnaround will be needed for your release day projects.

To apply, email me at elise(at)feedyourcraft(dot)com with the subject line - Kit CT Application. In your email, please tell me a little about yourself and why you would like to be a part of the team. Also, provide links to your Instagram and blog (if you have one) and 3 recent projects that best showcase your style. This is open worldwide, but you must have your application in by 11:59pm EDT, September 9th. I'll be in touch with all applicants on the 17th and will announce the Creative Team on October 1st.

Previous design team experience is not required, just a passion for creating and inspiring others! I hope that I’ve covered everything, but don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. No matter what you are considering applying for, I cannot stress enough that you should go for it! I know it can be difficult to put yourself out there and the sting of rejection is real, but I'd love to see an application from you. FYC Teams are filled with a variety of creative styles, so you might be just what I'm looking for!

P.S. - I have no problem if you are currently on a design team, but please make sure there is no conflict with other companies you may be designing for.

    1. Hi, Marta! The flair are small embellishments that are pictured above in the packages. You can see how they are being used on the @feedyourcraft Instagram if that helps. :)

    1. Hi, Adrienne! Yes, you can apply to both teams, but please send an application in for each one. The second email can be shortened to reference that links can be found in the first email, but this way you can include projects specific to the either the flair or the kits. Thanks! :)
