Thank You to the Team

The entire Design Team has been working diligently behind the scenes for months to bring together all of the tutorials and videos you will be enjoying during tomorrow's event.  I wanted to take a moment to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication in seeing these preparations through.  There is already a pretty extensive workload required for our team members with the release schedule each month, so it was an incredible accomplishment to complete all of these extra tasks that coincided with that.  Thank you to the entire team!

 An Extra Special Thank You

I wanted to add an extra special thank you to the talented Heather Nichols.  

She has been a very important part of this year's Stamp-a-faire event, taking on extra work when her time is already spread so thin.  Heather designed this year's stylish logo.  She designed the embroidered badges that you received in your totes, working diligently with the badge manufacturer to get everything formatted correctly.  She designed the Beautiful Beads patterned papers that you will be seeing more of tomorrow.  She also designed a special graphic to be used as the intro to all of our exclusive Stamp-a-faire videos.  I just wanted to express my gratitude to her and thank her publicly for all she has contributed, because I couldn't have done it without her.

As a reminder to ALL of our customers, Saturday, July 21st also marks the day you can earn the Stamp-a-faire exclusive stamp set, Natural Beauties ($15 value).  This stamp set will be available for free on Stamp-a-faire day (July 21st, 2012) to all customers who make a qualifying purchase of $100 or more between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST, limit one per customer.  Also note that project samples created with Natural Beauties will be shared throughout Stamp-a-faire day and you can also see several HERE in this post. 

We are looking forward to bringing all of you this amazing FREE stamping event!  We hope you will join us!
