Oh so excited....


Last Friday I received some of the most exciting news that has made me one super happy girl!  I get to design with some women whom I really admire, both creatively and personally. Check it out...



2012 Simple Stories Design Team

Eeeeeeek!  This is it....today's the day when we reveal the new members of our 2012 Simple Stories Design Team.  This has been such an exciting and overwhelming experience - we are simply amazed with all of the talented and creative scrapbookers, paper crafters and Simple Stories fans. We want to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who applied and submitted inspiring projects - I can't tell you how much we enjoyed learning about each of you and seeing your creative talents.  We KNOW how much work and heart went into your entries. Thank you for sharing YOU with us - I know we say this a lot but we truly appreciate each of our customers and fans and it's so exciting to see how you use our products or how our products inspire you...so thank you!  We loved getting know all you who applied, which made it even harder to narrow down our choices, but after all the reading, reviewing, searching, viewing, notetaking and lists and lists (and lists) - we're thrilled to announce our 2012 Simple Stories Design Team:

{Altered Art/Mixed Media}

{International}

{Special Projects}
We were asked to submit four projects that best suited our style. Fortunately, I had a some of two of their lines in my stash. I can honestly say that I LOVED working with both the Baby Steps and 100 Days of Summer lines.

Here are the four projects I made...

I love to make both cards and layouts so I chose to submit two of each.

                                                               Layout #1: One of my favorite summer photos




Layout #2: Her and him means giggles...always (I combined this one with a Clear Scraps assignment, so I used an XL Clear Scraps acrylic shape for the base).




Card #1: Good Luck


Card #2: Cute as a button


What a fun year this is going to be!!!!!!!!! Thanks for letting me share!

Enjoy your day,
Tonya
