So today is a BIG day here at IHP.  We’re making some changes and welcoming some new faces and I am beyond excited. 

First, please join me in welcoming Gretchen and Megan to the core IHP DT.  They are both amazing stampers and I am so thrilled they accepted my invitation to join the IHP team.

Next we welcome Natasha and Shelly to the new IHP DT for our first exclusive stamp release from Jannie Ho of Chickengirl Design.   YUP…you read that right!  Our first release of our own stamp line!  How exciting is that!?!  Natasha and Shelly have the perfect style for these adorable stamps and I am so excited to have them on board. 

So you want to know what’s going on over here?  Well…A LOT!  We’ll be releasing two of Jannie’s sets this month and we’ve got some other illustrators working on different sets (each illustrator has a completely different style so you’re sure to find something you love!).  There are even sets in production right now!  It’s been tough keeping such big secrets from you, my friends!

These sets are the highest quality photopolymer sets, made in the USA by the top manufacturer in the industry  (they make a lot of your other favorite stamps – I assure you!).

With this news also comes a bit of a restructuring of the current DT.  Merry and Lori will be transitioning to this new stamp team.  Releases will not be every month so on off months all of these folks will be doing business as usual here at IHP. 

And, to help us with this release we’ve got some very special Chickengirl Design guest stampers so please be sure to visit them so you don’t miss anything!


My other bit of big news is the launch of our new newsletter to make sure you’re up to date on what’s going on here with releases, new products, SALES, COUPONS, and other good stuff.  Carolyn will be taking on the role of Editor for this and I am so grateful to know it is in such capable hands.  She’ll still be stamping of course but her primary focus will be on the newsletter. 

If you’ve ordered in the past you will automatically get the first issue.  If you don’t want it, you can easily unsubscribe.  If you’ve never ordered but would like to subscribe just leave a comment with your email or head over to the website and sign up!

We’ll be doing some sneak peeks starting tomorrow and on the 9th will be the full reveal.  Be sure to check in every day so you don’t miss a single thing!

Thank you to all of you who helped make this possible – Carolyn, Jannie, my faithful design team and all of my guest designers who share the same love I have for this craft!
