2021 Design Team Contest details
Do people just love your cards / scrapbook pages / other projects you make using dies? Do you post on social media or have a blog / youtube channel? Have you always wanted to get free stuff for crafting? Then we have the contest for you. We will be adding 2 new design team members for our Dies... to die for LLC line (Our line of dies from our United States company found on this website. If you looking at a UK company then you are in the wrong place) in 2021. To find these new DT members we will be holding a crafting contest in two rounds that runs from November 20th - December 25th. I bet you want to know whats in it for you right? So let's get to that first. New DT members will get a year full of prizes. To start off they will get a "goodie box" with an assortment of basic dies, paper, adhesive and some other fun things for crafting. Then every month for 2021 they will get all of the new releases and maybe a few other goodies. On monthes that we do not have a new release we will send some dies from our existing line. Either way, we will send at least 6 new dies a month. I would tell you the prize value, but, that might cause my husband ( or me 🤣) to have a heart attack. So we will just say over $1,000 value. We all know it is way over that though. If that wasn't good enough, each DT memeber will have an affiliate code that they can post to earn a commission on sales they send to your website. Just post your personal affiliate link on any blogs, videos or social media posts and earn 5% of the sale for non sale items (excludes Gina Marie). The 5% will increase the more sales you send our way for a maximum of 15% commission. I won't bore you with all the details. We will send them to the winners.
Now that you are all excited about our awesome year long prize package, let's talk about actually entering the contest! The contest will be held in 2 rounds. For the first round you will have from November 20th to November 30th to send us a picture of your projects. Also, tell us your name, and any user names and sites you will be posting projects with our dies on (if you win) like: Facebook name, blog name, youtube name, Instagram name and so on. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or text to (616) 690-3436. We will email text back to let you know we got it. Make sure you hear back from us before the deadline. Projects will be in 3 catagories: a card, scrapbook page or other paper crafting project (like home decor) using dies. You can submit for 1, 2 or all 3 catagories. Only 1 submissions per category please. For this round you do not have to use our brand of dies , but, it is preferred. After all, this contest is to see what you can do with our dies. My warehouse staff (mostly my family) and current design team (Yes, Danetta that means you get 2 votes 🤣) will pick the top 10 overall projects. Winners of this round will be announced December 1st or 2nd. By submitting your work you are giving us the rights to use your project to promote our business ( ie on our fb page, website, youtube, in warehouse and so on).
Round 2: the 10 winners will submit their best project December 2nd - December 20th. Email or text us a picture of your project and your address (you will get a prize for making it to round 2). If you want us to take photos just mail us your project (we will not mail them back). In this round you must use Dies from Dies... to die for. If you do not have any of our dies then let us know and we can work something out. You do not have to buy our dies just to win the content. The submited projects (only 1) will be put on facebook for people to vote on from December 21st to 24th. Only one vote per person please. We will announce the new DT winners on. The two winners will need to mail (we will pay postage) the winning projects to us.
What is expected of the winners? Your new release dies will be sent out to you 2 - 4 weeks before the release date. Thats right, DT members will see the new dies before anyone else! You will be expected to make several cards, pages or projects using each of the new dies. You can use multiple new release dies in 1 design. We will expect at least 3 new projects a month from each member. You can make more then that though. That is just the minimum. Yes, You can use dies, stamps and other items not from the DTDF collection. Just make sure the DTDF die is the main focal point. Then take a picture of the cards you make and send them to me before the release date. You will also be mailing cards created to us (you will have stamps in your initial goodies box). Any pages or projects created we will decide individual if we want you to send them to us. If you are not using the dies to creates new projects every month and not posting on social media then we will dismiss you from the design team and move on the the runner up.
If you have read this far, thank you! Now go get started on your projects and Good luck!
