Introducing the very 1st "ShopPumpkinSpice" Design Team.....

Hello Friends,

WOW.. today is such an exciting day for me!!
It is the day I get to announce
the very 1st ShopPumpkinSpice Design Team.
This was a difficult task for me, as I was so surprised to have so many submissions for the open call.  I was thrilled and scared at the same time.  I loved all the submissions so picking just 5 of them was very tough... well .. enough of me...

Let's give these FABULOUS LADIES a warm welcome...

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Ann and I live in beautiful Southern California.  I have four crazy dogs and a hubby who's amazingly patient with my cardmaking obsession. I've been cardmaking since May 2009 and I'm happy to be a part of the supportive, encouraging and friendly papercrafting community.  I love to use stamps, flowers, ribbons, pearls, lace and whatever else you can think of on my creations, but above all else, I love paper!  You can create a card without stamps and embellishments, but you have to have paper!  I am excited to be a part of the ShopPumpkinSpice Design Team because, let's face it, it has the LOWEST prices around and I'm just the type who loves to get the most bang out of her buck ;)  I hope to inspire you with my creations just as everyone else has inspired me!

I love all forms of paper crafting! I enjoy making cards, mini-albums and altered home decor projects. I use my Cricut Expressions machine in almost all my projects. I love great quality paper, bling in all its forms (rhinestones, glitter, brads) and stamping.
I am a wife and mother to two adorable kiddos. I also work as a medical nurse at a hospital. I love my jobs and feel so blessed to be able to do both.

Hi! My name is Courtney Lee and I have had the incredible privilege of being sponsored by Pumpkin Spice! I approached them because they had the best prices, the best shipping rates, and incredibly great customer service! I am proud to say that I represent Pumpkin Spice and am looking forward to being on the Design Team! I design for Imaginisce, My Pink Stamper, and have been a guest designer for My Mind's Eye and showcased on Echo Park, so Pumpkin Spice has everything I need!
I live with my husband Hans in San Francisco, CA with our Yorkie named Spoon. She is my constant crafty companion! I am excited about this new adventure and am really looking forward to it!

June Houck is an avid card maker and sometime scrapper, as well as a mom to the cutest twin girls you have ever seen.  Her style varies from coordinated layers and embossing to CAS (clean and simple).  June enjoys playing with paper, and is especially delighted when she creates a card completely from scraps.  Her happy place is being in her craft room where she can be found watching episodes of Glee or listening to Elvis while she crafts.  Sometimes she is even supervised by her 21yo cat, Skeeziks.

Hi there I'm Lenae! I live in Washington State with my fiancée and my black lab fur baby Kalani. I got started in paper crafting about 5 plus years ago when I was invited to a card party. I lost my job about 3 years ago when the company I worked for went out of business. Before I lost my job I mainly made cards for the troops, but once I was jobless I had so much extra time I needed to expand my horizons. I started really getting into 3D design. Last October for my birthday I received a Cricut from my mom, which opened up all kinds of new ideas and avenues. This is when everything exploded for me in the crafting community. I started my blog just a few months after that and haven't looked back! I love designing cards, treat goodies and 3d projects! Most of my projects always come with either a free SVG file and/or tutorial. Crafting has really changed my life. After going through many losses in my family over the last few years I started using my crafting as a form of therapy. It really helped me get through some tough times. I have met some of the nicest, kindest giving people I have ever met in the crafting community! I am so blessed to have all of you in my life! I am also blessed to have a fiancée that supports my addiction.... I mean hobby! Thank you Denine for giving me this opportunity! And I look forward to meeting all of you!
