Meet My New Design Team!

 
 
Pam Bray - Tennessee
 
Her card designs swept me off my feet. I fell instantly in love with her use of my Belle Vie paper collection from Photo Play Paper. Elegant but not overdone. Perfect in composition...I could just eat these! She's on several other design teams including Graphic 45 and Sizzix. How lucky am I? I look forward to her designs and can't wait to see her entrance into my paper doll world!
 

 
Doreen Nunez - California
 
Doreen's tags are exquisite. Her color combos and that jar of pearls just captured my heart. She practically lives next door and told me she took a class with me years ago, pre-stamps! She has and continues to teach in our local stores. I am looking forward to many future creative meetings with her and can't wait to see her new designs!

 

 
 
Last but certainly not least, Jennifer. She captured my heart a few years ago while she was on the Prima Design Team. Not only is her talent and creativity undeniable, but she is everybody's cheerleader and my biggest. She posts the most encouraging comments on Facebook and well, just makes everyone feel so good. I love the simplicity of her layout and the incredible details she puts forth in every project, the draping of the net, the curling of the waves and of course the layering of the dress. I may have paper pieced and layered something pretty under the dresses but she was the master inventor of the type of layering you see here. I am so excited to have her on the team! Oh, did I forget to mention her sense of humor? You will just have to wait and see!
 
Stay tuned for some wonderful stuff coming from these 3!

I get creative ideas just looking at their work...mine isn't quite as amazing, but I am certainly learning from them!!!

She has inspired and encouraged me from the first post at SB.com, and I have learned so much from her tutorials! And funny..oh my goodness... I couldn't stop laughing when reading the JN doll shaker card tutorial on her blog! Great tutorial and so much fun to read! She is so down to earth and soooo talented! So happy too see that she is part of this team!
