We are so excited to announce that we are adding 4 new DT members to ring in 2013! Let me introduce you to these fabulous ladies:)
Hello! My name is Stephanie Hargis and I am so excited and honored to be able to work with the fabulous YNS design team again! I am 28 years old and have been paper crafting for a little over 5 years now. The first time I had ever heard of stamping was when my good friend invited me to a card party. I had no clue what she was referring to at first but decided to go and wouldn't you know, I was hooked for life! I am a wife to a wonderful husband and a mother to a beautiful little girl who will be 2 before we know it! I live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado and love to be out in them as much as possible! Aside from paper crafting, I also love to crochet and sew but creating cards is my number one obsession.
Here is a sample of Stephanie's awesome work using the adorable set Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set One.
My name is Laura, and I am SO excited and honored to be joining the Your Next Stamp Team! I am a former preschool/kindergarten teacher, now stay at home mom to 3 energetic kiddos - 5 year old twin girls, and a 4 year old boy. I met my husband the year I graduated from highschool, and we've been together ever since. We are enjoying life in sunny southern California, where we were both born and raised.
I started scrapbooking in 2006 when I was pregnant with my girls, which led me to stamping and cardmaking a few years later. The point of no return was when I purchased my first Copic marker at a local scrapbook expo 2 years ago... now I'm hooked! I LOVE to color, and it's how I unwind at the end of a busy day! My card making style is fairly clean and simple... I like for the images to be the focus of my creations, so I don't do a lot of embellishing. In addition to Copics, I am also completely obsessed with Kraft Cardstock, and polka dots! I am really looking forward to being a part the YNS team!
Here is an adorable card that Laura created using Yippee Fhiona:
Hello there! I’m Thanh (pronounced “tan”). I live in the Metro Vancouver area of Canada in a suburban apartment. I'm so excited to be joining the YNS Design Team! I was the July Guest Designer this year and have fallen in love with the images. I work full-time during the day and can be found in my little craftin' haven at night either sipping a cup of tea or a yummy martini! I'm an alumni Design member for The Greeting Farm and I'm currently a Bartender at Raise the Bar. If you would like to learn more about me, please visit me at my blog. Take care and I look forward to creating with you!
Thanh created this super sweet card using the very adorable Joy:
Hi there! My name is Lisette and I live in beautiful sunny Florida. I'm Mom to two beautiful girls and two fur babies. I have been stamping for over 6 years and always dabbled in the arts since I was a little girl. I have a passion for paper crafting and find time to color something everyday, but dabbled in just crocheting, oil painting, watercoloring and so on... My little girl once said to me that she doesn't want to grow up because she doesn't want to give up playing and coloring. I told her "Mommy plays everyday with paper and markers!" I am really excited to be joining this fabulous design team and getting started with Your Next Stamp!
I just LOVE this beautiful card that Lisette made using Fhiona and Her Friend Penguin along with the Tree Trio Die Set.
Please give these ladies a warm welcome! I can't wait to see more amazing creations from them:) Happy New Year!!!
