happy Thursday…SP here! Today I will be sharing two things with you lol! 1) Our new shabby artists and 2) A new FREE desktop (June)! YAY :o)
So, first things first – I have the pleasure of announcing our new Shabby Artist pre-team members and couldn’t be happier! I must first say that this has been a most wonderful and arduous process and experience! We were truly overwhelmed with applications and talent. Beckie and I literally had to create a spreadsheet in order to organize the data and our thoughts. As always with something like this, as excited as you are about welcoming new members, it is not easy to say no to others. So, I just want to say again that this truly was NOT an easy decision…we thought long and hard about each and every applicant and in the end, really wished that we could ask everyone to join us lol! THANK YOU AGAIN to ALL who applied and expressed interest! No doubt there will be more openings in the future, so we invite everyone to apply again at that point :o)
This is really just a quick introduction to the new team members…there will be lots more info on our Shabby Shoppe website soon :o) During this process, we also invited a couple of scrappers to be on our post-release creative team and I look forward to introducing you to them soon as well! We really feel like we have added some truly special and super talented ladies to our already awesome team :o) Each of these ladies brings something unique and fun to the Shoppe! I am just getting to know everyone myself, and I hope you will join me in welcoming the new girls. Soon, they will all be posting here on the blog!
Kylie brings her contagious and adorable personality along with a zeal for digi scrapping! She is somewhat new to ‘gallery’ life and posting online…but I have a feeling that when she starts filling her gallery, you will be truly inspired :o) Trish is an amazing layout designer – her pages just blow me away…as do her photos! I just know that you will find her layouts both inspiring and just plain fun to look at (she is a genius with elements). Anna has a wonderful style to her pages and she fills them with fun and sweet photos of her kids and grandkids – you will love them! Karen has a very relatable style, very simple but still with lots of detail and ummph (is that a word? lol)! Her layouts are all striking and they just draw you in! Denise brings with her a lot of digi scrapping experience along with a great style…and a talent for hybrid projects – we love that! And finally, Lu…she is a total sweetheart with a gorgeous family…beautiful layouts and a talent for all things design. No doubt you will be inspired by both her pages and her personality :o)
Whew, that is everyone in a tiny little nutshell lol! Again, we will be adding all of these new ladies to the Shoppe’s shabby artist page soon (just have to get all of the info together and make it all pretty lol)! Then, you will really be able to ‘meet’ the girls and get to know them (and their styles) better!
I hope you enjoy this June desktop – I really had alot of fun working on it! Kathy totally inspired me with her GIGGLE BOX product spotlight post…and I knew I had to use the kit for the June desktop! Don’t forget that the GIGGLE BOX collection is on sale for $5.21 until Tuesday (when we will spotlight a different product)! Please note that the text/journaling is on my example only – yours will be blank (except for the dates).
