Have you ever thought it would be awesome to be part of the Design Team at SGC?
Do you love creating with paper?
Do you want to be part of a friendly easy going team of crafters?


If you have answered yes to the questions above we want to hear from you!

We are looking for some fresh faces on our DT for 2017 due to some of our ladies stepping down at the end of this year.
The term is 6 months with an option to stay on.

The term would start in January/February depending on your commitments.
The team is split into 2 groups which means 1 project per month usually.
If you choose to make a card you will usually be provided a digi image from our sponsor to use.
We welcome scrapbookers, cardmakers, altered artists, mixed media, pocket scrapbookers, art journalers, in fact all types of papercrafting.

We correspond on facebook so you would need to have a facebook account and a blog or public facebook account which you can post the challenges and your projects to.

This call is open to New Zealand and Australian crafters only please.

If you would like to apply to be an SGC lovely please email us a couple of samples of your work, tell us a bit about yourself and please include your blog link to
