Creative Cuts & More Guest Designer Call

Creative Cuts & More (CC&M) is a leader in the die cutting industry offering dies cut in cardstock and a variety of other materials like chipboard, acetate, felt, velvet paper, and more. We are searching for paper crafters who enjoy working with die cuts (shapes, cards, 3-D bags & boxes, etc.) to design projects for us as guests to our design team. If you can rock a die cut and take a great photo, please apply!

Our plan is to choose at least TWELVE guests to post projects during their assigned month. During this month, guest designers would:
  • Create 4 projects for CC&M from the materials provided (two of which will have an assigned theme). Any extra materials sent are yours to keep.

  • Photograph your projects. Post photographs and product recipes to your blog, to Splitcoaststampers, Two Peas in a Bucket, and any other galleries of your choice.

  • Submit same photo and product recipes directly to CC&M and grant CC&M permission to use them in CC&M’s blog, Web site, etc.

  • We’ll want to show off our very favorite projects at trade shows, so we might ask you to either send us the original or make a duplicate. You will be reimbursed for postage in either case.

Once the projects have been submitted, you will receive a gift certificate for $20 in free die cuts of your choice from the CC&M Web site. You will also be eligible for a 25% discount on any purchases you make at that time.

To apply, show us your very best work with die cuts (2-5 projects). Send specific links to gallery pages, blog posts, or attach them in the e-mail. Also, we’ll need your answers to the following:
  • Name:

  • E-mail Address:

  • Blog Address:

  • Gallery Address:

  • Home Address:

  • Current & Past Design Teams: (No experience required… we’d like to meet some new designers!)

  • Other papercrafting experience (Publications, Teaching at LSS, etc.)?

  • What would make you a great choice as a guest designer?

  • If you have a preference, what themes or time of year would work best for you? (Is there a season or a theme that you’re passionate about? Have lots of wedding stamps? Keen on pets? Taking an extended cruise in April?)

Please e-mail Terry at and put “Guest Design Team Call” in the subject line. Submissions close on November 24th, and notifications will go out by December 1st.
