Now, are you a groovy chick too?
Well, we know you are because you’re reading this! 
Good news, then!  StampInsanity Stamp Company is looking for some Groovy Gurlz to round out our design team!
We are looking for 3-4 crafters who are kind, positive,
fun and want to gain some exposure for their labors of love! 
Is that you?  Read on…

What’s In It For Me, you say?
1. FREE STUFF!  You will get free digi or rubber images to work with! 
How do you pass up free stuff?  Seriously!
2. An Exclusive Discount on SI products while you are on the team, and various other bonuses on occasion!
3. Cash Bonus on any SI image that is published in an outside magazine (not online)
4. Exclusive first-looks at new images!
5. Your projects will be featured in a public gallery/slideshow, linked to your blog, on the SI blog  main page.  Exposure, baby!
6. Kickin’ GroovyGurlz badge for your blog. J Otherwise known as bragging rights. J
7. Periodic sponsor gifts… yep, potentially more FREE STUFF!
8. Friendship and lots of fun!  How do you go wrong with THAT?

What is Required to Apply?
1. You must have an active blog or website.
2. A commitment to:
a. Make a minimum of one (1) project per week using an SI image. 
Unless it is a release week, any image will do!
b. Enter *at least* 1 community challenge per month, linking your image back to SI.  More is better!
c. Post your creations in gallery sites, such as SplitCoast Stampers, Stamp Shack, or PaperCraft Planet, etc, and any message forum you are a part of to promote the images. 
d. Along with your posts, include the image name and recipe, technique, etc – we want to know how you managed to create your masterpieces!!  If you use Copics, the color id numbers are a huge help!
e. Be willing to post sales, challenges or any events on your blog, pertaining to the promotion of SI Stamps.
f. Display the SI logo badge (with link to the SI blog) prominently on your blog.
g. List BlogRoll of fellow GroovyGurls in your sidebar.
h. Make a *sincere* attempt to meet deadlines.  Life happens – and it can get in the way, we know that.  However, if there is no communication and you miss more than two deadlines, you may be asked to turn in your Grooviness - also known as get the boot, the axe or get canned. We are striving for consistency for your followers! This is really important to us.
i. If you are given sponsor product and do not follow through as scheduled –
you will be asked to turn in your Grooviness.
j. Visit the other GroovyGurlz and leave a short and sweet comment.  Well, sweet and as long as you want your comment to be! Subscribing via RSS is a great way to keep up with each others’ blogs!
k. Allow your creations to be displayed publicly on the SI Partner Sites & Blog gallery slideshow.
l. Commit to a 6-month term
If you decide after a few weeks that you do not wish to continue, let us know. 
Things come up, and we understand.  We just ask that you make a good, honest college try to make it through your term.

Well, that looks a lot worse than it is, doesn’t it?!  We just want to be clear what is expected… you will get lots of exposure from this gig if you play nice!  Everyone loves to see their hard work appreciated!  Ours is a labor of love, for sure – all the time and effort we put into our masterpieces is worthy of being seen!!

Interested? Duh! Here’s what you need to do:
Gather and email the following to
1. Attach photos of three (3) projects that best represent your diversity, style and personality.  And let’s be honest – you’ll want to choose some of your greatest masterpieces.  
***Be sure to include at least one hand-colored image in the group***
2. A link to your blog so that we can visit some of your other creations!
3. A paragraph or two telling us about yourself, your crafting world, any previous Design Team experience (NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED!!!) and why you want to be a GroovyGurl.  You know, besides the fact that you are groovy and all…
4. Do this by 11:59pm EST on Friday, March 5th.  

Newest GroovyGurlz will be announced on Monday, March 8th. 

Please be patient – we will let you know if you have been selected.  And while we anticipate a difficult decision – there will be Guest GroovyGurl spots opening up and we will keep your names for that selection when the time comes!

We can’t wait to see your works of heart!
Thank YOU!!!
