Our product is technique oriented and education based so we are looking for quality designers that can really show off what Core can do. The ability to write-up good instructions, do some tutorials, and take step out photos is important. And good photography skills is a must.

Entitle the blog posting “My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy”. Feel free to include step out photos or step-by-step instructions of any techniques that you used that you feel need highlighting. Videos are welcome, too. We are looking for a wide variety of paper crafters…..cardmakers, layouts, stampers, altered artists, mixed media, etc. So in your blog post let us know what you think you do best. We are not looking for a set number of specific designers and you will not be required only to do those kinds of projects but we are looking for a well rounded team.
