Design Team Call for "Masters of Forgery" at Counterfeit Kit Challenge

So, Bethany and I are not narcissistic, and although we love to share our work, we know that you are going to get really tired of seeing our work on the blog month, after month, after month...so we decided we need to choose a few "Masters of Forgery" aka a Counterfeit Kit Challenge Design Team!!!  Don't get us wrong, we will still include our work on the blog (that's the funnest part of the Challenge), but we need a little variety in there too! 

Who is eligible to be one of the "Masters of Forgery":

If you have never been on a design team, you are design team pro, or you are anywhere in between, please don't hesitate to apply...we would like to have a wide variety of styles and experience...just like our followers have a wide variety of styles and experience!

When deciding whether or not to "apply", please remember, we want you to pull as much product as possible from the supplies you have on-hand...we do not need (or want) you to go out and purchase all kinds of brand new products to complete your kit.  If you love to scrapbook, find it fun and challenging to work from your stash, and enjoy creating your own embellishments...you should apply to be a "Master of Forgery". 

"Master Forger" Requirements:
These are just general requirements, we will give specific dates and details for every month at the end of the previous month.
  • Create your Counterfeit Kit based on the Inspiration Kit every month.  *Due to the release dates of Kit Club kits and our "reveal" date (of the 5th of each month)...your goal should be to complete this step during the first week of each month.
  • Participate in at least 2 mini challenges...we will provide you with the challenges at the beginning of the month, so you will have 2-3 weeks to work on them.  (For examples of mini challenges, browse through the blog and check out last month's mini challenges.)
  • Write one "About Me" post for us to include on the "Masters of Forgery" page on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  (You do not need one a month, just one post when you first start, so everyone can get to know you.)
  • We would like you to be able to commit for 6 months.  If things are going well and you wish to continue beyond 6 months...that would be GREAT!  If things are not working out, or if you cannot fulfill the 6 months, it is no problem.  All we ask is that you e-mail us to let us know that you can't be a "Master of Forgery" any longer. 

"Master Forger" Compensation:

Since we do the Counterfeit Kit Challenge for fun (and for free)...we are unable to offer you any monetary compensation...it will just be the enjoyment of sharing your love of scrapbooking!  We will, of course, link all of your work and your posts on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, to your blog home page (if you have one---you do not need to have a blog to be a Master of Forgery).

If you are interested, here are the "application" requirements...

Attach photos of 3 of your favorite layouts/cards/projects.  One of the 3 entries must be a scrapbook layout.  The other two can be anything you choose (if you choose to send 3 layouts, that is completely fine).

Answer the following questions:
  • Why do you want to be one of the "Masters of Forgery"?
  • How long have you scrapbooked?
  • What design teams (if any) have you been a part of and/or are you currently designing for?
  • What is your favorite part of scrapbooking?
  • What do you find is the most challenging part of scrapbooking?
  • A link to your blog or on-line gallery (if you have one).
Please e-mail us all of the above information by March 1, 2011, at  counterfeitkitchallenge@yahoo.com  Any applications submitted after March 1st, will not be considered.  We will review all of the applicants and announce our new "Masters of Forgery" by March 15, 2011.  Your first month as a "Master Forger" will begin April 1, 2011.
