Shimmer & Shine in '09


We're looking for several talented designers to join our team. If you enjoy making projects that sparkle and can capture the sparkle in a photograph, please apply today! The applicants for this call will be considered not only for current openings the DT, but also for future openings and for guest spots throughout 2009. We don't plan to have another call until 2010!

We want to find:

  • Active, enthusiastic team members who enjoy using and talking about our products
  • A nice mix of seasoned designers and talented rookies
  • A variety of artists represented on the team: rubber stampers, scrapbookers, altered artists, painters, etc.


Our team offers designers a lot of flexibility. There are no vendor restrictions at this time, so designers are free to include any stamps, paper, embellishments, etc. from any other vendor. We're also flexible on project type. You can create cards, scrapbook layouts, jewelry, painting, 3-D/home decor item, etc.... as long as Shimmerz is used and is visible on the project. (Photography is very important!)


  • Use Shimmerz/Blingz on your projects and photograph them.
  • Post at least 2 projects per month on the Shimmerz blog.
  • Post your Shimmerz projects on your personal blog and online gallery(ies), with links to the Shimmerz blog.
  • Support new product offerings, blog candy, and other special events by posting them on your blog.

  • The DT Kit includes 5 jars of Shimmerz which are received at the outset of the DT member's term. Additional jars are sent when new products are released. {For example, 12 new colors have been released in the past 6 months.}
  • Additional Shimmerz for personal use available at a generous discount
  • Incentive for projects published using and naming Shimmerz
  • Your name and a link to your blog on the Shimmerz blog
  • Fun opportunities for creative input like new colors and color names


We want to see 3-5 examples of your very best work that creatively showcases Shimmerz (if you have some) or any other glittery product. You can attach these photos in your e-mail (please be mindful of file sizes) or include links to gallery pages or specific blog posts. Within the text of the message, we'll want to learn more about you:
  • Name:
  • E-mail Address:
  • Blog Address:
  • Gallery Address(es):
  • Design Team Experience: (Please don't worry if the answer to this is "none". We're looking for rookies, too!)
  • Other crafting experience (Publications, Teaching at LSS, etc.)?
  • Anything else you'd like to add.

Please e-mail your submission to for consideration. You can also use that e-mail address if you have any questions. Applications will be accepted through 11:59PM Mountain Time on Sunday, February 15th.

Thank you so much!
