DT Call Closed!

The first round of the DT call is closed and we had some amazing entries!   We want to thank everyone who took the time to apply and for helping us get the word out!    As we all know we can not take everyone who applies so now the hard part begins.  We will be spending the next couple of weeks trying to complete our "dream team", so wish us luck.

Your love for Bugaboo was quite evident and we know that you all would have made us proud.  So if you did not make it this time please don't be discouraged please try again next round.

Freebie Friday

Don't make me beg.
Tell me who's shaped like an egg
With neither a limb nor a leg,
And tastes great with nutmeg?
(and rum, but I digress)


This week's Freebie Friday is available for download here, and the collection is available for purchase here.

Note: Bugaboo Stamps makes every attempt to get our digital images uploaded to the store by noon EST for Freebie Friday, but please accept our apologies and check back later in the day if they're not there at that time.

Oldie, but Goody Thursday

Tammy, our DT Coordinator, is very busy doing whatever it is that DT Coordinators do, so I'm afraid that you're going to have to put up with me again today. Ya' know, there're at least 2.84 people (that I'm not related to - thank you very much!) that'd pay some serious ching-ching for the privilege that you're getting gratis. . .;)

Enjoy today's Oldie, but Goody projects by the Bugaboo Stamps DT! :D

Tutorial Wednesday

Never mind the project, I can't get over how incredibly adorable Lesley's daughter is! Not even Poppi Penguin can compete with Stephanie's smile. . .;) If you'd like to find out how to showcase your favorite child (or penguin, for that matter) swing by Lesley's blog for an insanely clever shadowbox tutorial.

Bugaboo Is Having a DT Call !!!

We are looking for a few new Design Team Members who love Bugaboo as much as we do! 

Please help spread the word!

 small bug


How Long Is the DT Call Open?

We are going to try something a little different this round. There are two rounds to our call.
1. Create a post and link it below. Post must include 1 Bugaboo project and 2 other of your favorite projects. Please note these can be new or older projects it is your choice. This phase of the call will be open until November 10th midnight EST. We will contact those who have been chosen to move on to round 2. Please make sure we have your email.
2 If you are chosen to continue to round 2, we will  send you a predetermined image which you will make a project and turn back into us it would make things much quicker and give you more time to create if you make sure your email is in your post of the first round.
What Kind of Responsibilities Does the DT Have?
As a DT Member you would be required to take part in a minimum of 4 projects and a maximum of 6 assignments throughout the month. You will know all of the upcoming challenges and assignments and most can be worked on ahead of time.
Is It OK If I'm on Another DT?
Not to worry, as long as you can commit to the Bugaboo DT and are not conflicted with other DT work then of course feel free to apply, but please consider the new workload before you apply, the last thing we want is for you to struggle to keep up with the assignments, this is meant to be fun and stress free, not a job that you feel obliged to do, so again please do keep that in mind
What If I've Never Been on a DT Before?
Not a problem at all, we welcome all applications whether you have DT experience or not, in fact we would encourage peeps with no previous DT experience to try out for our Design Team, more so over those that do, we want to give everyone a fair chance
When Will the New DT Be Announced?
The new DT Members will be announced by November 29th.  New Term officially begins on January 1, 2011.
