It's basically an in-house design team position and the company (Hot Off the Press/Paper Wishes) is located in my town. So, it's pretty much the perfect job for me.

I've had one interview and dropped off a layout made from one of their kits that they gave me as a designer test and I just got a call for a follow up interview tomorrow afternoon!

Here's they layout I made. Layout It was quite the challenge. I had to use everything in the kit at least once and I couldn't use any additional tools like punches, etc. Oh, and they didn't include an alphabet!

I'm really hoping I get this job! Wish me luck!


I got the job!!!! Thanks, Peas for all the well wishes!!!

Nice layout! When I first started scrapbooking, HOTP was who made most of the scrapping stuff at my M's and my J's. It got harder and harder to find them over the years, but my last papers from that company I purchased in I think 2008, and I'm still enjoying some of them.

Glad to see they're still around. Sometimes their paper and their little paper embellishments are perfect. Hope they make it back into the craft stores soon.

Best wishes PeaLegs - hope you get the job. Your l/o is quite pretty and showcases their product well. Paulette Jarvey, the lady who owns that co, seems like she'd be the nicest person. I've still got quite a few HOTP papers in my stash and they were one of the first companies in the sb world. They were the first Disney papers that I bought. Maria

Your LO is gorgeous. I love how you arranged all the different PP and how you used the embellies. I get the HOTP Paper Wishes catalog and have ordered quite a bit from them over the years. I hope you get the job!
