Meet the New ESS Design Team!!

The time has finally come - we can now announce the new Design Team members for Everything Scrapbook and Stamps!  We had some really lovely and talented people to choose from, but the votes are in and our first team has been selected.  Take a few minutes to get to know them - you should be enjoying some lovely new samples from them very soon!

Jeannie Ziegelman

We're very excited to bring one of our long-time favorite customers into our design team fold... we did a customer spotlight on Jeannie earlier this year and you've seen her beautiful work all over the store (that Halloween house is to DIE for, right? - and not because it's scary!) 
Jeannie recently brought all of us all our own decorated bags filled with AMAZING witches hats: 
Isn't it great??  It's on it's own little stand and you can just see the little bag of treats in the back.  Here's a close up of some of the top detail:

And this was how she decorated the front of the bags:

These are outstanding - we have Michelle's here in the store if you want to come sneak a peak!

Luci Brito - Mixed Media/Altered Art

Luci is a very trendy artist who makes great use of space and color. 
Luci said: "I am a native Floridian who has a wonderful husband and four amazing children; two are mine and two are my step-children. I have a passion for everything paper. I scrap, create altered art, make party favors... you get the picture.  If it has anything to do with paper my grubby, inked fingers are in it."
Luci submitted this beautiful altered canvas as part of her design team application - this piece is so full of loving detail:

Melinda Miller - Scrapbooking

Melinda said: "I am very creative and enjoy exchanging ideas with other creative people...they inspire me!"  We loved Melissa's creative scrapbooking layout ideas and we think you'll love them too!
These fresh and fun scrapbooking layouts earned Melinda her spot on our design team:


Angel Estes - Cardmaking

Meet Angel: "My name is Angel. I am a wife and mom to two beautiful girls. I love stamping, cooking, reading, cycling, and about a zillion other things!" 


We really enjoyed Angela's clean designs and clear sense of focus - these samples are so fun! 


Kim Dubois - Mixed Media/Altered Art

Here's how Kim described herself:  "Paper is my drug of choice!! I love to glue, paint, fold, cut and hoard it!! Plus I have a million ideas and I NEED to share them!!  I am a self-taught artist, and I enjoy mixed media, painting and sewing. Paper and fabric have always been my passions. I love to CREATE! My personal motto has always been "ART SAVES LIVES".
Kim is truly a creative spirit - we loved this fun flower tutorial:
Needless to say, we think these ladies will bring a lot of wonderful projects to our store and to you!  We can't wait to see the projects that will be coming our way - keep an eye out in the store!
