Update | 12.1.2012

The scrapbook industry didn’t get the memo that we’re all supposed to be kicking back and enjoying the holidays, because the news has been flowing fast and furious this week!

As they promised in their statements following the summary judgement against them two weeks ago in their patent infringement case against QuicKutz, Spellbinders has filed notice with the United States Court of Appeals that they intend to appeal Judge Neil Wake’s ruling ending their case against QuicKutz. The notice was filed on November 27th, and the company has until January 28th, 2013 to actually file their brief with the court – meaning like everything else in this case to date, nothing will be decided quickly in the appeal.

First, if you missed our earlier announcements, Nally Studios has a couple of creative team calls out!

The first call is for staff writers for our newly-acquired Craft Critique site. This call is open to crafters of all kinds who want to try out new products and tell the world what they think about them!

We’re also calling for a design team for our newly launched Card Annex site. If you like to make cards, we’d love to see your work!

The calls are open until Dec. 7th, and the new teams will be announced on Dec. 14th.

If digital is more your style, Jenni Bowlin is holding a creative team call for JBS Digital Designs. The call closes on December 19th, and the team’s term starts in January 1st.

American Crafts has a warehouse sale ongoing from now until Dec. 30th at a temporary store in Jordan Landing in West Jordan, UT. The store at 7378 Plaza Center Drive, West Jordan (location of a former PetSmart store) is open M-Sat from 10am-8pm.

The company was planning to have a second location in Provo Shops at Riverwoods, but the lease on the location fell through.

Creating Keepsakes Magazine has announced their 2013-2014 Dream Team and contributors.

The 2013-2014 Dream Team Members are:

Autumn Baldwin joins Creating Keepsakes as a Contributing Writer, and Deena Boese is their new Contributing Editor.

    I really need to start a blog so I can apply for design teams!!! Thanks for the updates!

      Yes, having a blog is pretty much required these days for being on design teams! It serves as your promotional platform and online portfolio.

    I remember the days of old when we would all hold our breath to see who was chosen to CK. Honestly I didn’t even know they still had a “dream team”. I wonder why –is it me or is it the industry?

      I think part of the reason that the dream team flies under the radar these days is because it isn’t an open call anymore like the Hall of Fame was. It’s “invitation only”. All of the magazines went to that format awhile back to avoid the circus of the contests and just be able to pick who they wanted.
