Hi Bean Stalkers!!!

I know many of you are waiting for these instructions!  I’ve researched and researched and started putting together a formal call announcement…that just wasn’t working for me. 


Here’s what I think…

* Are you fun?  Are you innovative? 


* Are you low-maintenance?  I’m not up for crazy people that cause a stir. 😉


* Do you have a passion for paper crafting? 


* Are you a blog savvy?  If not, are you a quick learner?


* Do you like free product? 


* Do you submit to publications?


* Do you like JB Soup products (this is a given)? 


* Do you think you would be a good fit for our company? 


* Are you a good photographer? 


*If you said “yes” to all of these…then I invite you to apply for our design team!!! 


The jist…

We are looking for 5-6 individuals to represent Jillibean Soup.  We are looking for people to support our new blog.  You will be expected to post 2 layouts, 2 cards and 1 project per month with instructions/descriptions for new ideas/tips.   You will be the bulk of the blog and represent Jillibean Soup.  You are also expected to say nice things about Jillibean Soup and it’s owner!

Tell me about yourself.  When you started scrapbooking.  If you’re on another design team.  What’s your favorite paper crafting supply?  Just anything and everything about your paper crafting history.  I also want to know where you live and what makes you happy.  Not a book…just the basics. 


Submissions are being accepted from now until Sat, Feb 28th, 2009!  Get on it girls!  

Good Luck!

  1. Hey Jill!
    I’m sure many are going to want to know if they have to use jillibean soup products in their DT entry, or can they simply send you samples of their ‘best’ work?

    I can’t wait to see the great entries!!! Bring it on ladies!


  2. Patter Cross Says:

    Oooh, I LOVE your stuff. I just haven’t been able to get my hands on any of it yet! What a great and fun opportunity! Good luck to all that apply!

  3. jyeger Says:

    Hey Ladies,

    You do not have to use JB Soup product in your entries…just send your “best” work. I know that JB Soup is just hitting the market in many areas…if you are able to use it – that’s great!



  4. jyeger Says:

    Me again…I’m sure another question will come up. Yes, you will be compensated for published submissions. This will be in the formal contract that’s offered the DT members at the end of the call.


  5. Linda Says:

    Oh how fun!! What a great opportunity for the new 5-6 designers!! The new lines are fabulous!

  6. Sammye Jo Says:

    I am so excited about this opportunity! I am getting my submissions together! I am also trying to get a store I work with to pick up this line!!!! We need it around here for a breath of fresh air!

    Good luck to everyone!

  7. If you’re looking to get your mitts on some Jillibean goodness, be sure to drop by Kimber’s blog and my blog. We are both giving away some goodies. My LSS was fortunate enough to get JBS last week. I will be mailing out my winner’s package on Saturday, right after they are picked…as long as I can get their mailing address from them quickly.
    Off to mark on my calendar how many more sleeps till the 28th!

  8. Carolyn Lontin Says:

  9. danielleholsapple Says:

    Are you ready to be flooded with entries?!?! I am so excited about this!

  10. Kristin Faust Says:

    I am so excited about this! Hopefully it’s a good sign that the deadline is on my birthday. Although you don’t know me and really aren’t required to provide me with a gift on my birthday. (Or shortly after once all entries have been narrowed down and contracts mailed and the announcement made). Although don’t we all know each other in blog land? So really if you felt so inclined to provide me with a gift on my birthday I would absolutely do the right thing and accept. You know, if you felt so inclined 🙂
    Did I mention that I’m funny?
    On a serious note, good luck and have fun during the selection process!

    Hi Jill:
    I just saw your new line at the scrapbook store at the outlets in Lodi. I’d just seen the previews at B&B scrapbooks in Powell. The new line looks great. I’ll send some projects to your email address.

  49. Tasha Says:

    Oh my! How exciting! I was planning to head to SB Art tonight or tomorrow for some new jillibean goodness anyway…so I guess this gives me a reason to buy MORE 🙂
    I can’t wait to send somethings in and to see what amazing designers you find.

  50. I can definitely answer yes to all the questions. May give it a shot.

  54. Tina Says:

    I submitted mine last night at midnight. I totally thought the deadline was yesterday. What a ditz, huh? I guess it is better to be early than late. I do wish my LSS had gotten the papers in before I did everything. I love the paper and can’t wait for it to come in whether I make the team or not. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all who submit. I can’t wait to see all of the designs!

  55. Meghan Says:

    Thanks for posting this. I am throwing my hat in the ring and would love to be considered. My LSS is going out of business 😦 so I’m definitely looking online for great sources and you definitely qualify!

  61. Shanna Says:

    OKAY!!!! I just sent mine off! I hope I am not too late! It’s still the 28th! LOL!!!

    Good luck to everyone who gave it a shot! I wouldn’t want to be the one deciding with all the talent out there!
