Welcome to our newest DT members!!

Good morning!!  Can you believe tomorrow we kick off another month?!!!  July 1st is the start of a new design team term here at Sketch N Scrap and we are super excited to announce the newest additions to our team!!  Joining us July 1st as part of our Social Media team will be Jan Mosier and Amy Pitts!! 
JAN:
Here is a little more about Jan:
Hello, my name is Jan Mosier and I have been scrapbooking for well over 20+ years now. I started out as a card maker but switched to scrapbooking when my husband purchased me a Canon Rebel (that was before digital cameras) for my 30th birthday. I went to my first Creative Memories class in 1996 or 97 and it was by far the best $5 I had ever spent. I am forever grateful to the CM consultant that introduced me to scrapbooking. I visited my first Michael's during our stay in El Paso, TX and I never looked back. There were way too many pretties to choose from. I eventually found my own style of scrapbooking, clean and simple with a little mixed media and a whole lot of white space. Most of the pages in my albums are of my 12 dogs, my son who lives next door, my beautiful step daughter and her 2 children (my grandchildren) and now my great grandson Kian. In the past few months or so, scrapbooking has become more of a creative outlet for me and I am super excited to be a new member to the team.  


A bit more about Amy:
My name is Amy from DeKalb IL, my husband Kenny and I are the modern day Brady Bunch he had 2 sons and 1 daughter and I have 3 daughters so now we have 6 kids among us. Only my youngest lives with us all the rest of them are adults. Our two oldest children both have families of their own so we also have 5 grandchildren. Lots of great memories to scrapbook and lots of reasons to send out cards on a regular basis.
I have been artsy my whole life but in 1995 I discovered scrapbooking and soon after stamping. This year I also ventured into Pocket Scrapbooking, I have tried it several times in the past and didn't get very far but so far so good this time. It has been nice to scrapbook the every day in pockets and then add in some pages for my really special moments on a 12 x 12 or a mini album. It is fun to blend stamping, and scrapbooking together and I enjoy making ABC items (anything but a card),home decor items, and planners. Basically I just love papercrafts!!

 Jan will be joining us for her first term at Sketch N Scrap but Amy has been on our team for some time now, she will be transitioning from our blog team where you have seen her amazing projects to our Social Media team where she will inspire us with not only her layouts and cards but her fun challenges as well!!  WELCOME LADIES!!!

We are welcoming one new member to our blog team this term.  Please join me in giving Tammy Folk a big welcome Sketch N Scrap style!! 
Here is a bit more about Tammy:
Hi, my name is Tammy and I'm super excited to be a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Design Team. I currently live in Pennsylvania with my husband Shawn (who supports my paper addiction 100%), and my son Garrett (an upcoming college sophmore). I also have a daughter, Jackie, that lives in South Carolina. She is mommy to two beautiful babies that call me Nana - Miss Everly Claire and Harrison Grant. They are the main focus of most of my layouts these days!! I've been scrapping off an on now for about 20 years, and would consider myself a very clean and simple scrapper. I scrap 8-1/2 x 11 pages, and have been tempted over the years to convert, but have never quite made the switch . . I definitely love working with sketches, and enjoy the challenge of converting them to a smaller size to fit my needs!! You can find me at http://ttownsend-strawberriespeppermintsohmy.blogspot.com

While it's so exciting to welcome our new members it's also sad to bid farewell to 2 of our team!  Please join me in wishing Sharon and Lu the best in their future endeavors and join me in thanking them for all the inspiration they have shared with us!  Thanks Sharon and Lu and best of luck on our future endeavors!!   Make sure and join us back here on the old blog for the kick off of our July 1st sketch in less then 24 hours!!  Happy creating!
