New Design Team Members Times Two

I know a lot of you are going to read this and just want to glance to see who the new Card Design Team Members are. But please read this very carefully, because not only am I announcing the Card Design Team Members on here, I am also announcing a second Design Team and what it is for. {smiles}

We had over 100 people apply to be on the Sketches! Card Design Team. And I went through each submission at least two times. This was not an easy task for me. I picked out my top 9 and sent it off to ten Card and Layout Design Team Members. I value the Design Team Members and their opinions. Everyone voted for their top 5 and the ones with the most points are our new Sketches! Card Design Team Members.

I thank each and everyone of you who applied. Oh my goodness, the talent and creativity was amazing. I encourage those of you who didn't make the Design Team to re-apply during our next Sketches! Card Design Team Call.

Let's Give a big Sketches! Welcome to:

  • Carol Houghton
  • Deborah Anton
  • Jessica Thompson
  • Judith Rozema
  • Krista Baxter
  • Riley Fitzgerald
  • Stacy Morgan

You can expect to see their first Card next week, September 4th up on the blog!

Now, on to the second group of names. Back when I first started this blog, I used to have Scrapping Recipe Challenges. For one reason or another, I stopped doing them. But I have decided to bring it back a long with a group of Design Team Members. Every Tuesday, you will be challenged to use three things on a card or layout. There are 5 Design Team Members who will make cards and 5 who will make Layouts to help inspire you. Some of the Design Team Members are familiar faces around here. Others are past Guest Designers here at Sketches. And lastly, there are some who simply are new to Sketches! I am sure you will be inspired by what each person has to offer.

Here is our Recipe Design Team Members:

  • Brenda Becknell
  • Carol Sheetz
  • Dolores Cancel
  • Edleen Maryam
  • Kathleen Hopperstad
  • Kristin Tweedale
  • Linda Hockaday
  • Lori Tecler
  • Suzy Tyler
  • Trudi Freeberg

You can expect to see the first challenge and the Design Teams cards and layouts next week, September 2nd.

Have a great week everyone!
