Basically Bare Design Team Call

In case you haven’t heard, Basically Bare is having a Design Team Call.  Submissions for the team will be accepted until Midnight, Monday, September 23rd.  Below are the details:


Basically Bare is a manufacturer of mixed-media albums and embellishments for the scrapbooking and paper crafting industry. In business since 2011, Basically Bare has seen incredible growth, and is now sold in scrapbooking, craft and hobby and rubber stamp stores across the US, Canada, Europe and the UK, Australia and Asia.

We are looking for 3-4 designers to add to our team. Design team terms last for six months.

You will be showcasing the Basically Bare embellishments and albums in scrapbooking layouts, cards, and other paper crafting or home décor projects. Each design team member is responsible for 2-3 projects per month. All types and styles of artists are encouraged to apply.

Each team member is responsible for creating two to three blog posts per month on the Basically Bare blog showcasing the projects they make during that month. In addition, design team members are required to help promote Basically Bare via their own blog/website, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and/or other social media outlets. We also require that you create and update a account and gallery during your term.

Each designer will also be responsible for creating two to three samples for the Basically Bare booth during CHA Summer or Winter, depending on the time of their term.

Design team members can expect ample Basically Bare product to complete their assigned projects for each month, including access to brand new and unreleased product prior to CHA. Basically Bare is owned by Art Anthology, so each of our designers will also receive a sample of Art Anthology products to work with during their term. We also hold blog swaps with several other manufacturers throughout each design team term, and each design team member will receive materials and product from these manufacturers during their term. Basically Bare designers will also have the opportunity to join us at CHA and appear in the Basically Bare booth as a Basically Bare ambassador! There, you will meet thousands of fellow crafters and scrapbookers, mingle and network with others in the paper crafting industry, as well as help out with our workshops, demos and make ‘n takes.
