We would like to officially WELCOME the talented ladies of the Colorbök and Making Memories Design Team! We were completely overwhelmed with the response to our Design Team call. I'd like to sincerely thank all those who entered! Your creativity and passion for your craft was really inspiring to everyone here.
After looking through hundreds of applicants, we narrowed it down to the eight most talented crafters in the bunch. These ladies have come on board to inspire you with their own unique styles using the latest Colorbök and Making Memories designs. I can't wait to see what they create over the next 6 months. Please join me in giving the new Design Team a warm welcome and say "Hello!"
We will be featuring a little more about these crafty women in the coming weeks, but for now you can check out their blogs and witness their mad skills in action!
We are so excited to announce our first ever call for the Colorbök and Making Memories Design Team! We’re looking for several designers to create beautiful and innovative projects for our blog and social media sites. This is your opportunity to inspire our followers and share your creative genius with the world!
What we're looking for
We need creative and committed team members who are as passionate about our product as we are! We want crafters willing to promote Colorbök and Making Memories on their own blogs or websites as well. Those with a great eye for photography and a penchant for story telling have a definite edge. You’ll be expected to create well-written blog posts that showcase our products with tutorials, projects, and stories.
We are asking for a commitment of at least six months with one blog post per month. This call is open to everyone, regardless of geographic location!
Benefits to Design Team Members
Internet exposure through direct links from our social media sites to your blog or website. Sneak peeks of product launches and free product samples to work with. The potential opportunity to create projects for trade shows and publications.
How to enter
Send photos of 3 recent layouts, cards or projects. Chose images that highlight your skills and individuality. Don't feel like you have to fit a certain style! We want to see what makes your projects uniquely YOU! The projects can be previously published and do not have to use Colorbök products… though it would certainly be nice!

A brief biography… What sets you apart? Why are you perfect for our team?
Do you like creating your own patterns for background paper? Stacy has done an amazing job today with creating a beautiful background paper with small squares from all the different pattern papers. We love how it makes this layout so bright and colorful!
Can you believe it is already August - before we know it will be Christmas! We wanted to share some inspiration from our new Believe Collection today. Wendy Bretz created this amazing 6" x 6" layout and we just love the way she used type. She created this great journaling circle on the computer first and then built her layout on top of that, brilliant!
Just a little inspiration for your Friday morning! Stacy Cohen has created a special project today using the Modern Millinery Collection. We love how she took this collection and created these adorable shoes. The little details on these make all the difference - small pearl stickers and ruffled ribbon make these absolutely perfect!
Today we want to highlight a Sarah Jane project created by Stacy Cohen. We love all the small details in this project from the layers of paper to create the background to the stickers and die-cuts on the layout. You know what else we love... that she didn't worry about the paper being gender specific!
I don't know how she does it, but Wendy Bretz never disappoints! We absolutely love this Christmas card she created with the new Believe Collection. The layered patterns combined with white space makes this card perfectly balanced.

Wendy Sue Anderson is amazing and we have been drooling over this card since she mailed it to us! The soft colors, layers and beautiful message make this card good for any occasion! Who wouldn't love giving this to their closest girlfriend, mother, sister, etc. Love this.
