A few changes…

By September 8, 2008The Inside Scoop

Amys_headshot_2
I will never forget the day that Amy Rysavy agreed to be on our design team.  She was so excited, as was I.  She has been contributing edgy designs to our gallery for about a year and a half now and has been such a valuable member of the team. 

………………………………………………………………………………………
Amyrstamps_logo_2
Amy is now stepping away from the team to focus on a dream of her own.  Her very own stamp line produced by CC Designs (available for purchase through All That Scraps starting tomorrow).  I am so proud of her for taking the risk that is involved in a venture like this.  It is always a true test of your self-confidence to put your artwork out there and hope other people like it!  She has been sharing sneak peeks of her work on her blog this week, so be sure to stop by and take a look and wish her luck on her new journey.  We will certainly miss her!

Michelles_headshot
Michelle Wooderson has now been promoted to the Senior Team.  She has a fun eclectic style that is all her own that we have thoroughly enjoyed seeing used with our images & products. She is a hard worker who has so much dedication and creativity to share.  We look forward to seeing her contributions in this new capacity.

………………………………………………………………………………………………
We are adding two new faces to our release team. 

………………………………………………………………………………………………
Melissa_phillips_headshot
Melissa Phillips has been a paper artist that I personally have admired for many years.  The layers, the unexpected combinations, the colors, all of these characteristics of her work are just completely enchanting!  Pair her talent with her super sweet personality and her love of baking, and you have a recipe for a perfect match with Papertrey!  She is featured regularly in several publications and really has a finger on the pulse of the industry along with trends.  I am so looking forward to getting to know her better and seeing her work with our images on a monthly basis!

………………………………………………………………………………………………
Betsys_headshot_2
Betsy Veldman is our second addition!  She is AMAZING, and if you are unfamiliar with her work, you just HAVE to check it out!  She plays wonderfully with color & pattern.  Everything she creates seems to almost be emitting rays of sunshine & happiness!  She has a self-professed passion for altering and finding *other* things to do with her paper crafting products, which is evident in the array of projects on her blog and publication features.  I think she’ll fit in so nicely with the other girls and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work with her in this capacity!

……………………………………………………………………………………………….
Thanks for allowing me to share all of these changes with you as we merge into another release!  Be sure to stop by and welcome the new girls on the block!  Have a great day!

    Seems like there are a lot of “wins” in this change!

    I expect that Amy won’t give up doing PTI samples… she’ll just be doing things in different orders ;^)*

    One thing we can all agree on, MORE great stamps are a GREAT thing!
