Scrapmuse - DT Call

Some of you may remember that I used to hang out at Scrapmuse a lot and subscribed to their Kits, but somehow things changed and life steered me towards different clubs/communities and I as good as forgot about them...BUT today I accidentally came across their Design Team Call, so I checked the old forum out. It was fantastic to see that a lot of the old crew is still there; making my return to the forum almost feel like coming home.

And yes, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring for the call. Melissa, the owner is one of the above mentioned old crew - and having checked out the Kits she put together since she took over the 'Muse, I can honestly say that it would be a delight to work with them. But even if I don't get on the team, I am just pleased I "found" the community again. Since the closure of CMK I have been kinda "homeless" and lost in cyberspace, trying to find a forum which I felt comfortable in.

Calling all Scrappers. {scrapmuse} is growing and as a result we have the need to add four additional design team members to our company to design for our two additional kit offerings each month. We are looking for motivated scrappers that can commit to daily participation in both our message board and gallery. We are looking for a variety of Scrapbooking styles.

  1. it has been a nice community for a long time. When I was on the DT it was wonderful - I'm sure the new owner that is an old member of SM will continue the spirit that this community has!

  2. well i guess i'll forget about applying! (kidding!) i'll keep my fingers crossed for you :)
