The search for new design team members!

There are going to be some exciting changes at Crafty Boots in the new year and as a result we are looking for a small design team to work with our new products and more focused product lines which will be offered in future. (Please note that our existing challenge blog and challenge blog design team will remain unchanged).

What will be expected of you:

The people we are looking for must be used to working with character stamps and will be required to work with these - primarily Some Odd Girl and Saturated Canary. You can colour the images with any medium of your choice be it alcohol markers, watercolours etc.

You will be required to post a minimum of one project per month on the shop blog ( and participate in other challenges we may run on the shop blog (max. once per month). We would also expect you to promote your post and the Crafty Boots store on your own blog.

Your project can be anything you like so long as you use the stamps provided.

What you will receive as a design team member:

You will be sent one stamp/set each month to work with free of charge and will get exclusive DT discount on any others. You will also be provided with Crafty Boots Deluxe card if you wish to use it!

You will have access to a private DT only Facebook group.

How to apply:

Please email us at with a little information about you, a link to your blog and photos of 3 projects that reflect your style (preferably using stamps of a similar style to the Some Odd Girl or Saturated Canary stamps that you will be expected to work with).

Please send applications ASAP as we would like the new DT to start in January! :)

Unfortunately at this time we can only accept applications from the United Kingdom.
