Hi Hollowers!

I am excited to be launching a new design team call for The Hedgehog Hollow box!  Our current design team have done an amazing job but as their term comes to an end we are looking for fresh new members to add to the Prickle!

If you love papercrafting of any type; from cardmaking to mixed media to scrapbooking and beyond we want to hear from you.  We are looking for design team members and are pleased to be offering this call worldwide! We are also looking for a design team manager to lead our new team.  

Who is The Hedgehog Hollow?

The Hedgehog Hollow was started in April 2017 by Alexandra Stapleton-Smith; after moving from the UK to the USA she started a hobby blog which in the 18 months since it was founded has grown into an award winning creative company with YouTube tutorials, blog, subscription box, a huge 13,000 instagram following and also some business consultancy services.  Our monthly box focuses on a new company each month and comprises of a variety of papercrafting supplies including stamps, dies, inks, coloring mediums and more! We also include all the matting cardstock, stamping card and cardbases to complete projects with. Each month’s focus company provides a coupon for our recipients plus a regular coupon from Tonic Studios and Ellen Hutson; we also give them access to an exclusive Facebook community and lots of inspiration from the design team and each other! The products from the focus company are exclusive and we may add in extra goodies to ensure a minimum $45 value is reached each month and our recurring subscribers also get a monthly bonus.  Pervious collabs have included La-La Land Crafts, LDRS Creative, Sunny Studio and more!

What are we looking for?

We are looking for talented papercrafters from around the globe to inspire our Hollowers with their monthly box supplies.  For our new team we are looking for unique and innovative ideas with paper crafting supplies. We love to see something a little bit different and stretching supplies is always a winner.

We need you to have a blog, Facebook and Instagram; we would also love if you have Pinterest and are an active member of Splitcoast Stampers. We are looking for team members who can provide monthly videos for some of their projects to show Hollowers how to recreate them step by step.

You don’t need to be a video pro, but well lit videos with your smartphone are perfect and high quality photos of finished projects are a must.
What are the perks?

You will receive a Hedgehog Hollow box for every month of your term including all the recurring subscriber bonuses; that’s a minimum $50 value every month! Plus, you will get a discount to The Hedgehog Hollow store for any other supplies you might want, you will also get first chance to order alongside our subscribers for any special edition boxes (and there’s an awesome Christmas one due real soon!).  You will also get the cutest blog badge and of course become part of our Prickle. I love to spoil the Design Team so you may find sometimes find some fun extras in your boxes!
You will also be featured on the Hedgehog Hollow social media accounts across pinterest, Instagram, facebook and the blog. We have a private DT Facebook where we can chat and give each other support, plus you can also link up your own blog to get new followers of your own!

What are the responsibilities?

Design Team members are expected to post weekly on your blog and the Hedgehog Hollow blog; two posts per month using the monthly box contents will need to contain a technique or tutorial video for Hollowers to follow.  You will be expected to share your posts in the exclusive subscriber Facebook group, in cardmaking and papercrafting Facebook groups, on Instagram. Design team members will also be expected to share and promote Hedgehog Hollow as a whole, including our weekly Tonic live events.  We also have some new additions coming to the Hollow and you will be the first to know about those!
Finally, engaging with the Hedgehog Hollow community, we have really active social media and need our design team to comment on posts, reshare as often as possible and get involved in the fun!
