Creative Team Call

Well, the poll results are in! The general verdict is that a design/creative team IS a good idea for Q Tea, 2 or 3 designers, possibly monthly guest designers, showing lots of ideas for the kits with an emphasis on layouts. Phew! LOL. So this is the bit where you guys get to show me your stuff!

I am currently inviting expressions of interest for the Q Tea creative team members. I'm not sure about the specifics at this point, numbers, duration, etc, but the invitation is open to both Australian and international scrappers.

Here's the deal:
In exchange for one monthly kit, team members or guest designers will create two items for the Q Tea gallery. Ideally a mix of both off-the-page and layouts, but with the balance leaning toward more layouts. Each project would need to use at least 2 items from the kit, with the rest of the projects using your own stash. You are also welcome to use the projects you create for Q Tea to enter other challenges or to combine with other design team commitments.

What to do:
To express interest in being part of Q Tea's creative team, please email with a bit of info about yourself, links to any online galleries or blogs, and an example of both a layout and an off-the-page (canvas, mini-album, altered item, etc) project. Ideally the examples would show how you like to use non-traditional products, such as those in the Q Tea kits. Please keep the file sizes small for ease of viewing.

Kawaii (Super Cute!!) - SOLD OUT

I just love the Japanese pop culture, anime, cute characters and some stuff so bizarre you just have to laugh. Kawaii means 'cute' in Japanese, and suits this kit to a T. Bright colours and cute accents accompany a 4"x6" photo flip album, perfect for customising to your own super cute theme. There is a lot of randomness in this kit, meaning each customer will get some things that are slightly different - have fun with it!

Kawaii (Super Cute!!) will ship from the 3rd January, simply email me to place an order or organise a subscription!

December Update

A quick note to my December customers - all the kits that have been paid for have been posted this week, including internationals (posted on Tuesday). You should have them shortly, if you don't already!

I have added two new polls to the sidebar, about Q Tea's gallery and the possibility of an official creative team, you will find the polls under the 'gallery' flickr banner thingy. If you have anything else you'd like to suggest, request or just express, please add your comments to this post :)
