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

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!

Hi everyone, this is Erin Bassett happily jumping in as a guest designer and blogger today.
I love the Sarah Jane line is so perfect for little girls! I just had to use it to create a scrapbook page for my new little niece!
I love all the Instagram photos we are all taking of her and so I had them printed out and then used some twine to create a close line for each row of photos. I just stapled the photos right onto the twine!
I love the sticker banner, and had to use that for my title. By popping it (and other embellishments and photos) up with foam adhesive it really gives the page some dimension, even under the glass of the frame I ended up putting it in.
Here's a close up of how I used some of the die-cuts and pennants to make this cluster. I think adding the trim around the die-cut helps give the layout a baby soft feel.
And here's how it looks in the frame! A great gift to give!!
I also had some left over supplies and so I whipped up a card. I pieced together scraps for the cards and then sewed them together. I also layered up a bunch of the pennants to make a star like flower shape to add to the front of the card.
For the paper that "wish" is on, I just die-cut it out from some of the product packaging. I can't let a good pattern go to waste!
Once again I popped up some of the layers to create dimension, and now it's good to go!

Here is the Believe line in action! Check out these great projects from Guest Designer, April Walker from Scrapper Forever.
Briana Johnson designed this gorgeous set of three cards. These cards are a perfect example of how you can add a stkr.it to any project that you would normally do. Briana wanted to share some photos of her daughter in the card she was sending so created this cute hidden pocket in the front with a tag that has the QR code on it! Making Memories has partnered up with Stkr.it to share inspiration on how you can use this new product.
Here is that cute hidden tag - this is a great way to add the stkr.it without having it be distracting on your layout or card.
We are loving all of this amazing inspiration for the Stkr.it program. Making Memories has partnered up with Stkr.it on some projects this week! Today's project was inspired by a recent move and sharing the a new home with friends and family who aren't close by. What a great way to update the ones you love with your new address and give them a personal "tour" of your new place!
