Hip 2-b Square is looking for talented passionate scrappers to be a part our Hip Kit Club Design Team. If you love getting your hands on brand new scrapbooking products and you enjoy sharing your talent with others - this design team call is for you!
Each month we unveil a brand new Hip Kit that is filled with fabulous products; patterned paper, cardstock, alphabet, rub-ons and other embellishments. In addition to our main kit - we also offer a monthly Add-On Kit that coordinates with the main kit. Our Hip Designers create scrapbook layouts, cards, and other mini projects with the products in our Hip Kits & Add-On Kits. We put a lot of time and thought combining the products that we include in each month's Hip Kit. Together with our talented Design Team we inspire our Hip Kit Club members with creative and innovative ways to put the products together. This enables the most novice scrappers to feel accomplished, and seasoned scrappers to feel challenged.
Each Design Team member will receive a Hip Kit and an Add-On Kit, and a project pack each month at no charge. Plus, we will pay the shipping.
In addition, our Design Team members will also receive access to our Hip Blog where they can share their expertise with others.
Each Design Team member will be showcased with their photo and bio on our designer page. They will also receive their own gallery where their artwork will be showcased.
