First Ever White Rose Crafts Open Design Team Call: January-April 2018 Term

Owner, Kay Barnes, and the rest of us at White Rose Crafts are absolutely thrilled to announce that she has decided to expand our new design team! We are looking for enthusiastic, dedicated candidates with a variety of strengths and styles, who must be able to take clear, bright, quality photographs of their work and be familiar and comfortable with posting on a variety of Social Media platforms. If this sounds like you, please see below for application requirements and details!
We are looking to fill 2, four month term design team spots on our growing team, as well as a few first quarter Guest Designer spots.
We are very interested in adding at least one member whose strengths are in Mixed Media & Altered Arts to diversify the team, but will consider all design styles. 
One of our top priorities is adding a member with an established YouTube presence and following that would be willing to make quality, informative videos featuring projects created with your DT package from White Rose Crafts, twice per month.

Term Design Team Requirements:
  • Must reside in the USA or Canada.
  • Must Love Papercrafting and creating with a variety of products.
  • Must love working with products from a variety of different companies (visit to see the brands and products we carry).
  • Must be able to take clear, bright, quality photographs of your projects
  • Must have an active Instagram and Facebook account. You must be able to interact with the design team in our Secret Facebook group, as this is the fastest way for us to communicate with the team as a whole. We prefer that at least one member have an active, established YouTube account, but it is not a requirement for application. Pinterest or Personal Blogs are a bonus, but not a requirement.
  • Must be willing to help grow and increase exposure for the Store and be an active, up-beat, and supportive member of the team. We expect posts on behalf of White Rose Crafts to be professional in nature. We ask that you are encouraging and supportive both with the other team members as well as existing and potential customers. We want you to present your projects and feel comfortable sharing feedback, ideas, favorite products, tips and tricks.
  • Design team members are required to share a minimum of 4 projects per month using products available at White Rose Crafts, to be posted weekly, that will be featured on our Facebook page, Instagram and Blog. You will not be restricted to use only products sold at White Rose, but we do ask that they be the primary focus. Please do not use image stamps or patterned paper packs that are not available for purchase at
  • Must be willing to create at least one additional project using one or more featured themes or companies on certain promotional months. (You will receive additional product in your design team packages for these months.)
  • Must be willing to post design team projects on your personal social media pages and in any Facebook groups you are a member of that will allow it. We ask that you link back to wherever possible and always use your personalized watermark that will be provided to you.
  • Design team terms are 4 months (this term will begin in January and end April 30 2018), with the option to extend as long as design team requirements are being met and the owner is pleased with your performance. You may be on other Design Teams for digital artists, stamp/die companies or product manufacturers, but we do ask that you are not on a permanent design team for another online retail craft store that carries multiple brands, as it is a conflict of interest. However, you must be able to keep up with your White Rose Crafts design team requirements.
Note: Guest Designer requirements and compensation will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Term Design Team Compensation:
  • $20 per month in store credit (plus free shipping) to purchase a design team package of your choice. On certain months, you may be asked to include at least one product from a specific theme or brand. You will receive additional store credit or a specific product selected by Kay on those months, and will be expected to create a 5th project using promotional products.
  • 25% exclusive, unlimited store discount for the length of your design team term.
  • Additional exposure for your work, as we will be featuring it on our company social media pages and Blog.
  • Links back to your personal blog, and tag backs on Instagram and facebook for all posts featuring your work.
  • A supportive team, dedicated to encouraging each other, building collective confidence, and sharing knowledge and expertise in our strength areas.

To Apply for the January-April 2018 White Rose Crafts Design Team term, send an email to with “WRC Design Team App” in the subject bar, so we know it’s not spam, and include the following information:
  • Name, Location, and a brief description of who you are and your crafting journey.
  • All of your social media links (must include Facebook and Instagram, but Pinterest, Twitter or a Blog are a bonus) Any qualified applicants with established YouTube presence will receive priority, until that position is filled.
  • 3-5 quality photo examples of your work
  • Links to 1 or 2 examples of videos you have shared, if applicable.

The deadline for first term applications is December 22, 2017. 

We will do our best to respond to all applicants, but depending on the volume of applications we receive, that may not be possible. Thank you for understanding.

Applicants who are asked to join the team or are invited to be guest designers will be notified by email no later than January 1st. Please make sure you add to your safe senders list. 
We will announce the new term team members during the first week of January.
