We have two sad goodbyes and two happy hellos to announce.
Heidi is stepping down to concentrate on her husband's new business and we wish her much success. Heidi has been with us since day one. When I compiled a wish list of designers who I admired, she topped my list! As I looked through the issues of Paper Crafts magazine, her projects always stood out to me. She WOW'ed me then and she did every time her e-mails came in with her DT projects. I never wanted her images to end because I enjoyed them so much. She is just as much a delight in person as her projects are and I feel so lucky to have her in my life.
Karolyn is also stepping back from our design team. I have always loved her innovative cards and her amazing design eye. She has an incredible way of spotting trends...and she rocks it - every time! Karolyn is a wonderful cheerleader and a true gem to everything she touches. She inspires me in many ways. I feel sooo fortunate to have her in my life and I will truly miss not having her on our team.
soooo yup, those are some super HUGE shoes to fill...
Michele Boyer and Jocelyn Olson to the PS family :)
Michele and I go waaaay back to the Cornish Heritage Farms days. I have always and forever loved her and her fabulous style. She is cute and quirky and her cards always makes me smile. Her mad coloring skills will blow your mind!! I just know we are all in for a real treat!
Typically our PS DT blog hop is the last Thursday of the month...BUT it's next week because we have a treat planned for you, so I thought it would be more fun to have a super BIG blog hop giveaway in conjunction with an amazing adhesive company! Stay tuned, more details on Monday.
Soooo, since our new May/June release goes live next week, I thought I'd share a sneak peek of some of our new products to start getting excited about...
k, so seriously now that I look at my card I wish I cut the sentiment from gold paper and NOT black - ack!! (not so sure about that baker's twine now either LOL) Please disregard my poor color choice on the word and concentrate on the two new dies. The Congratulations word die and a NEW Coverlet die called Retro Arrow. This cover plate will look amazing vertical as well. Maybe add some stitches along the open spaces? I thought about using my sewing machine but it has a "flashing disco bulb light" that throws me off a bit LOL. I think the design possibilities are endless.
I didn't leave a whole lot to the imagination of this card since I used sooo many images from the new set! But yes, you guessed it, it's a kitchen theme set. It's a really neat mixture of old and new kitchen items. The dies that compliment this set are seriously FUN!
