Calling all Crafters!
Do you love crafting? Do you love using MDF products? Do you love being involved with new designs and want to see new items before they are released for sale?
Who/What is Samantha K
Hi my name is Sam (Samantha K) and I own and manage a small UK gift and craft, family run business. We create bespoke gifts and personalised items and also make and sell lots of craft and mixed media goodies. Anything made by us (gift or craft), is made here in the UK from our studio in Essex.
Samantha K Gifts is the gift side and the gift items have always been our lead sellers, but throughout 2017 our Samantha K craft items have been getting noticed and lots more of you are having fun using our craft products. On the craft side of things, we predominantly design and cut MDF items and for 2018 we are putting together a Design team to help showcase these products as they are released. We have our first show date for the wonderful craft channel Hochanda set for mid Feb so we really need to get this ball rolling 😉
What I am looking for
I am looking for people who are passionate about crafting and creating projects. Particularly mixed media, but card makers and general crafters are also welcome to apply, as I am looking for a varied team, to create varied makes.
You will need to be relatively active on social media as this will allow you to show off your Samantha K makes and encourage a following on your page and ours!
One project a month will be required for use on the Samantha K blog, preferably with a tutorial, but this isn’t essential. Your own blog is a bonus, but again, not essential.
Interaction or helping answer questions within the Samantha K group would be helpful.
You will also be required to create a number of samples from new products, for showcase in magazines and on the Hochanda TV craft channel. These may be a relatively short notice, but will be agreed before hand. Any samples required to be sent here, will have their postage costs paid by us.
Each project will need to be photographed clearly and with good lighting.
You are not tied in for any length of time, all I ask is you create projects for us using all items sent to you, before you leave or you can of course return any unused products.
What You Get In Return
You will receive a batch of MDF goodies to get you started and to get your creative juices flowing.
You will receive new releases before launch date (predominantly MDF goodies), meaning you will be one of a few, crafting with a gorgeous new set of goodies, before they are available for sale!
You will be a part of a fantastic team creating for a rapidly growing craft company in the UK.
We will share your wonderful crafts and designs via our social media and blog, as well as providing access to have your projects shown on TV.
You will also get sneak peeks of future ranges and can even have a say in what we bring out next!
All You Have To Do
To be considered, we would like for you to become a member and then upload 2 of your favourite projects to the Samantha K Mixed media and Crafts facebook group, into the photo album that has the title ‘DT Call 2018’ OR send the photos via email to: Dtcall@samanthakgifts.co.uk Before midnight (UK time) 7th January 2018 . You can upload/email any type of craft whether it’s home décor, card making etc. The choice is yours! (You do not need to email and upload to the FB group, just one or the other)
We would like to get to know you so COMMENT below your added facebook photos or in the email, telling us a little bit about yourself, your craft style, any blogs or public social media pages you have and what other DT groups you are currently on.
Please note that you will NOT be paid for this role, we will however supply you with our latest product releases for you to showcase your crafty talents. UK & Europe applicants only (Due to length of postage times). Any questions please email Dtcall@samanthakgifts.co.uk
