Webster Pages DT open call

Here is the specifics on Webster Pages Design Team Call:

Webster’s Pages is pleased to announce their first open design team call!

We are looking for paper crafters that 1) love working with Webster’s Pages products, 2) are looking for an opportunity to be involved in both creating paper crafts as well as sharing their enthusiasm for Webster’s Pages on InspireME, Facebook, and other online outlets, 3) enjoy helping to inspire other paper crafters with beautiful and unique projects.

We will be looking for members to be on our team that uses traditional products as well as looking for members for our first Digital Design Team. The Digital Design team will work exclusively with our digital products. Paper crafters that consider themselves “hybrid” paper crafters and use both traditional supplies as well as digital images, should apply for the “traditional” team but mention they are hybrid paper crafters. Those applying specifically for the digital team should mention this. The application requirements for both teams are the same.

International designers are welcome to apply to both teams.

Specific requirements and compensation details are provided upon invitation to the team. However we would like to mention that regular creation of projects and online participation are requirements for this team, and compensation is provided through a generous amount of product as well as monetary compensation for hard copy published items and trade show/advertising assignments. The term will be until the end of 2011.

Please note that Webster’s Pages Design Team members will be limited to being on no more than 3 paper manufacturing teams total.

We are envisioning a team of 15 members with 3 exclusively on our digital team.

Images must be no larger than 600 x 600 px. We do ask that if possible you use Webster’s Pages products on these 3 projects in order for us to get a sense of how you would work with our style of products.

Thanks GlueArts for Booing me yesterday. Hoping for a "sweet" prize.

Here is what has been keeping us busy the last few months. Our new puppy CoCo. She is a miniature retreiver ( which is part flat coated retreiver and american cocker spaniel. Note the cocker spaniel ears and smooth coat on the rest of her body. She will only get about 20ish" tall and about 35lbs. She is such a sweetie, smart, cute and sleeps all night (we love that). She has learned to ring the bell at the door to go potty, sit, down, roll over, kisses, shake, sit up. We are working on attention and coming when we call her. Those are the tough ones.

Happy "Boo" Day

Wow, has it been since April that I updated my poor blog that no one reads but me? Well unfortunately it has.

One of my favorite scrapbooking companies "Glue Arts" has a Halloween challenge to Boo people. So to do so, I must post this adorable Ghost on my blog. Please see their blog for great inspiration at

Post Vacation

Well we have been back from vacation a week and I miss Key West already. So gorgeous there but hurricanes scare me so I am not sure I would want to live there all the time. Fun, fun place though!!

Easter is tomorrow and I have a couple of Easter cards to do for my grown boys (hubby and 2 sons). Also I get to do the menu/grocery shopping this year so I am working on that right now. I am thinking of trying a potato salad receipe from Bobbie Flay.

Page Maps contest layout

I loved this sketch on the Page Maps blog.

This is my niece's graduation (yes another one). I used the actual graduation invitation as my journaling part of the layout so it opens up to read the details of the ceremony.

thanks for looking.

Sunday, Sunday

Well the CHA show starts today in CA and I so wish I was in the industry in some way that I could go. I hear the CA one is unreal. I went to the summer one in Chicago once as part of an online stores team and I was blown away so I can only imagine what CA would be like. Maybe someday! I guess I need to get my scrapbooking noticed and break out of my clean and classic mold to do that, who knows. I just know that I "heart" scrapbooking and wish that I was in the industry. Maybe if my job goes into the tank (which could be shortly), I will find something to do for someone and who knows.
So today is a quick layout for my niece's graduation last summer then I am off to Michaels to spend that gift card that is burning a hole in my pocketbook. They are having a sale so I will get more for my money. Good logic huh?!
Hopefully it won't be too cold out.
Talk to you all later.
p.s. 3 days out of 5 I went walking last wk. Gearing up for that Key West vacation in March.
