Let us introduce you to our designers and the amazing stuff they’ve put together.

Meet Emily Branch – an amazing designer, a fun (and funny) friend, and has an amazing blog! Be sure to visit her blog for lots of bonus content and helpful hints. Her blog is totally inspiring!

Meet Laura Bassen – she has an amazing eye for color, design, and for all things paper crafting! We’re so excited to show off her amazing cards! Stay tuned from a couple more amazing cards from Laura as she returns for a guest design day!

Meet Jamie Cripps – (** her blog doesn’t have a SSS post – so feel free to just stop by her blog and say hi wherever strikes your fancy) — you know her from all her SWEET designs right here at Sweet Stamp Shop. She’s been designing for us for a while and we couldn’t be happier that she stuck around! 

Meet Misty Buck – just like Jamie, you’ll know Misty from her sweet time with us here at the Sweet Stamp Shop! She’s put together the most amazing project for today’s release – you need to go straight to her blog to check it out! She was a total sweet genius using OLD and NEW stuff!

Meet Shelly Kurth – She’s such an amazing CLEAN and Simple (and SWEET) design eye. Her cards use some old sets – and lots of the new stuff. She even made some of her own ‘washi’ tape with one of the stamp sets. I can’t wait to get all of her secrets!

Meet AJ Otto – and check out this AHHH-mazing card she made! That background she did is a STAMP! Wowzer, right? She’s an inventive designer with a great eye for color and creativity! Can’t wait to show you more from her!

Meet Amy Kolling – You probably recognize her name from around the crafty world, she’s a creative genius and we’re so pleased that she lent her abilities to Sweet Stamp Shop.

Meet Lalo Ik (from the tropical Hawaii!) Ok – we’re already jealous, right? So, not only is she living in paradise… but, she’s an amazing crafter and paper wizard! Check out this project she whipped together for the release. It’s pretty amazing, right?!

Meet Kerry Urbatch – Her style is fresh and new – I think you’re going to love her choices in color and want to ‘lift’ several of her designs!! I know I do!

Meet Jennifer McDermott – she’s created projects that are going to WOW you from beginning to end. (And, she’s a doll!!) Can’t wait to show you more from this talented lady! 
Meet Amy Tsuruta – I know, you know Amy! She’s a star around the paper crafting world AND around the Sweet Shop. We love her impeccable design and crisp images – we’re convinced you’ll love it too! 
Meet Tenia Nelson – she’s my favorite Denver friend! Not only is she amazing with paper crafts but the girl is an actual musician! Her cards are as Jazzy as her music – and we can’t help loving all of it! 
Meet Stephanie Muzzulin – you know her from her time designing with us here at the sweet shop – and we’re pleased to say – SHE’S BAAACK! You know she’s got an amazing ability to mix patterned papers (secrets she’s promised to share with you on her guest design day!) 
Meet Heather Hoffman – She’s a fun gal with a unique style. You’re going to love her layers and how she utilizes stamps in the most creative ways. We’re loving her color choices on her cards today… whatta think? (be sure to hop over to her blog to see more!)

Meet Ashley Hamman –  She’s a fun and upcoming designer that clearly LOVES to use stamps in creative ways and she’s a great scrapbooker too!! Can’t wait to show you her creative muscle this month!

I made a couple little items with the new stamps – and I’m tellin’ you what… I think you’re going to LOVE these new stamps!

We hope you love all these sneaks – that you’re inspired and that you’re excited to see more tomorrow!
