Just like the natural transition between the changing seasons, we here at Papertrey Ink have some changes that we are announcing today. Changes can often times be bittersweet, but are a necessary part of moving with the ebb and flow of life and business.
Lauren Meader has made the decision to step away from her work with Papertrey Ink to explore new adventures with her paper crafting career. We could always depend on Lauren to be inventive and think outside the box. She is without a doubt one of the most creative woman I have met in this industry and I know that wherever her path takes her, she will find much success. All of us at Papertrey Ink wish her all the best in her journey and future endeavors. I know many of you will miss her contributions to Papertrey Ink, so please be sure to stop by her blog today to wish her well.
As I said previously, all change is bittersweet, and on that note I am pleased to announce that Betsy Veldman will be stepping up to fill the vacant position on the Senior Design Team, so you can look forward to seeing her work featured each countdown week, beginning in December. I am just thrilled to be able to work with her during the release festivities and know that she will offer fresh & fun inspiration to everyone!
There will also be a new girl in town! Kim Hughes is joining our Release Design Team just in time for the December countdown! I've admired her skills from afar for many years now, especially in the many publications you see her work appear in. She has a signature style that she brings to all of her projects and we are beyond excited to see how she works that magic with Papertrey products! Welcome, welcome, Kim!
With Lauren's departure will come the end of new introductions to the My Timeless Template line of products. When we first combined our idea of downloadable & printable templates with Lauren's amazing designs, they took off in popularity beyond our wildest dreams. For the last few months we have been busy brainstorming behind the scenes as to how we could build upon our original idea, and thought that this would be the perfect time to shake things up and make our printable template concept BIGGER and BETTER than before! Several different designers, including myself, will be contributing to a broader range of downloadable products that we like to call…
Click Simple will be a reference library that you can refer to 24 hours a day for a variety of different downloadable templates available for purchase. This library will embody all of the current Timeless Templates, along with new introductions each month. Several different designers will be contributing their designs to these new introductions, so the variety will be expansive and appealing to many different types of paper crafters, no matter their style.
One key contributor will be the previously introduced Kim Hughes. She has a fresh and fun spin on the entire template concept that will take you above and beyond packaging. Her ideas are SO amazing & revolutionary, just you wait and see! My lips are sealed as to further details until the December release week begins on the 10th *wink*!
We are surely sad to see Lauren decide to depart our tightknit family, but on that same note we are looking ahead to the many exciting changes that will be unfolding in their entirety over the next few months.
