Spellbinders Design Team, 2014-15!!!

I am SO thrilled to be able to share with you all that I have been chosen to be a part of Spellbinders Design Team for 2014-15!!

As you may know, I was part of the design team for just over 2 yrs, then transferred to the Inspiration team! Having designed for Spellbinders for 3 + yrs has been SUCH a huge blessing!! There are a lot of changes taking place within the company. Change is  not always easy, but it is a necessary part of life. So I figured my time there was over. But now to have been chosen to continue on, well, I'm just unbelievably thrilled!!! To say the least!!
Stop on by Spellbinders blog to see who else is joining me on this journey!! There have been 4 designers already announced... and there will be... a few more... announced after me! So be sure to stop by the blog each day to find out who will be inspiring you in the months to come!! I know I am beyond THRILLED to be working with them all!! Both the "oldies" and the "newbies"!!
Thank you SO much for all of our support in the past!! To make sure you don't miss anything happening, please be sure to subscribe/follow my blog and to my You Tube Channel as well!!
I'll leave you with a Scrapbook Page that I created for Spellbinders And was featured on Scrapbook Soup this summer! Just one of the amazing opportunities I have had with Spellbinders! :) Enjoy!!

Thanks again!!
Until next time,
Happy Creating!!
