DESIGN TEAM CALL

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!



We are looking for a few new Lost Coast Designers to join our fabulous Lost Coast Designs/Carmen’s Veranda team!  We are an enthusiastic and friendly team and would love to welcome some fun-loving stampers with positive, professional, no-drama attitudes, who love working with eclectic and quirky rubber stamps. 
This is an international call open until 30 November 2018.  

DT term is one year starting January 2019

Please read over our DT Requirements carefully and consider your current obligations before applying.  Joining a DT is fun and a way for you to share your love of creating but it is also a commitment.  You are expected to do your best for our team regardless of how many other teams you serve on, so make sure you fully understand what being a Lost Coast Designer entails and feel free to ask questions if you need anything clarified. 

If you think our team is right for you then we’d love for you to apply by emailing Gail (craftynomad at gmail dot com)   If you have applied before please feel free to reapply.  We do not keep your personal information on file so you need to send a new application if you wish to be considered.

  • You are required to comment on challenge entries.  
  • You are required to mail in some non-bulky paper art projects to Lost Coast Designs for display at our convention booths across the USA and Europe. 
Looking forward to hearing from you.  If you wish to strutt your stuff in addition to your application we have two challenges a month and there is also a blog hop where you can comment to win some Lost Coast Designs dollars!

Happy Stamping!
