I have some news to share about our design team. Paper Player LeAnne Pugliese of WeeInklings, has decided to take a break from designing for the next little while. She has a new granddaughter and needs some time to settle into being a grandma! She will still be stamping and involved with card making but just for herself. She has decided to take a "Wee" break from her Design Team duties for a while. That said, she will be back in the new year I am sure! We will miss her in the meanwhile.
Fabulous news to share is that Nance Lempinen-Leedy will be staying with us as a permanent Design Team Member. Nance said Yes!!! I am so happy to have Nance on the team as a permanent fixture and admire her work greatly! Hooray Nance!
Here is some information about Nance!
I live in the beautiful tree canopy of North Florida with my husband, our daughter and two feline friends plus a whole menagerie of woodland animals and critters. I am a Reference Librarian at our local state college and have been crafty since my mom taught me to sew at the age of 8. I am inspired by art, interior design and fashion. Becoming a Stampin’ Up demonstrator has opened a whole world of paper crafting to me that I love sharing with friends, family and blog readers like you!
Thanks Nance! We are thrilled to keep working with you!
We also need to announce our newest Guest Designer. From this point on, the Paper Players will be selecting one guest designer each month to help with our challenges. We will choose guest designers from the crafters who play our challenges.
Our Guest Designer for November is Anne-Marie Hile.
Here is some information about Anne-Marie!
-I live in the great state of Texas with my husband, who is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force.-I recently took a huge step and "retired" from a 15 year career in management to return to school and continue my education, focusing on a law degree.
-I have been "playing with paper" for as long as I can remember. I enjoy the creative and social outlet that cardmaking and scrapbooking provides. Because of that, I decided to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in March of 2008. I get so excited to create something special for those that mean so much to me because, let's face it, we ALL like getting something "hand-made and heart-felt" in our mailboxes.
-My other hobbies include traveling, photography and cooking. I am THAT gal that always is always snapping pictures at every event. I believe that capturing those memories is what keeps them alive. Life is too short not to celebrate every single day!
-We share our home with three, sweet fur-kids. All were adopted from shelters. We have a boisterous terrier, named Ozzy and two mischievious felines, named Benjamin and Tomas. They keep us very busy and we wouldn't have it any other way! :)
Welcome to the team Anne-Marie! We look forward to playing with paper with you!!
