Honey Bee Stamps Design Team Call
Hello Crafty Bees! We are so excited to be announcing our second Design Team Call! Are you ready for the opportunity to join our awesome little design team? We sure hope so! We are looking for some crafty bees that want to have fun spreading joy with their amazing creations using Honey Bee Stamps!
Design Team Requirements:

- Regularly promote Honey Bee Stamps on different social media platforms, including your personal blog, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and other social media sites. We welcome all applicants with existing blog and/or video broadcasting (vlog) platforms.
- Participate in new stamp releases, blog hops and other promotions as needed.
- Support your fellow design team members by commenting on their creations, posts, blogs, etc… Re-posting and being active on social media to support each other and the Honey Bee brand.
- Design team obligations run through one complete stamp release, and therefore the commitment level can be short or long depending on your comfort and enjoyment. (We are easy to work with : )
Design Team Benefits:
- Free product to promote with as well as a generous discount on additional stamp sets whenever you choose (for gifts, giveaways, etc).
- A photo and bio with links to your blog and social media platforms on our “About the Design Team” page.

- The opportunity to attend CHA (Anaheim, CA) or CKC (Portland, OR) conventions with us as company representatives.
- In addition to the free product, my design team members who go above and beyond their duties will receive occasional happy mail and surprises from me. I love to spoil my team whenever I can!
- You will become a member of the “Honey Bee Hive” – a “secret” Facebook group for our Design Team members where we can all communicate, have fun, give feedback on new products and stamp designs, make suggestions, interact with owner Melissa and the rest of the team… and just have fun!
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for Crafters who love what they do! We are looking for card makers, scrapbookers, project life fanatics, planners, Bible journalers… Anything and Everything!
