Welcoming our new Design Team!

Today's an exciting day! i {heart} papers is THRILLED to be adding six new amazingly talented design team members to our current team. We are also welcoming our incredible new July/August guest designer today. To help celebrate we are hopping from blog to blog, and will be offering six $10 gift certificates! Winners will be selected from all of the blog comments you leave as you congratulate and help welcome them to the team, so be sure to hop along and comment! Comments close Friday July 5 at noon EST and winners will be announced on the IHP blog the following week. (You must visit the blog to see if you've won. You will not be contacted.)

First, let us introduce our amazing new Design Team to you! Joining our current team of Carole, Deb, Gretchen, Judy, Lori & Tracy, we have:


My name is Lindsay Amrhein and I live in Northeast Ohio with my husband, John and two kiddos.  I enjoy camping, hiking and bike riding, as well as cooking and traveling.  Of course, I enjoy spending as much time as possible at my craft table!


I'm Lizzie Sanchez... I'm a twenty something momma of three that lives in Texas. I'm artsy and crafty and nerdy and a lil bit on the quirky side. Okay ALOT on the quirky side!  I have a wonderful hub bub that works while I stay at home and clean and cook and make cute things all day! I've been crafty for as long as I can remember. I draw, paint, and make cards, geez... just about everything!  I love being creative and letting my imagination inspire others.


Hi, I'm Sarah Gough! I live in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand. I've been stamping for about 7 or 8 years now and love the immediacy of this medium. I also love to bake, crochet, make jewelry and I sew a little when my machine is behaving! I'm looking forward to sharing my LOVE of paper and all things stampy with you all!



Hi, I'm Stacey Schafer. What a thrill to be part of the i {heart} papers Design Team!  I'm a wife, mom of three, full-time special education teacher...who ADORES all things paper-crafting!  Many moons ago, I started scrapbooking and fell in love with beautiful paper, ribbons, buttons, stamps and ink!  I can't wait to create beautiful projects using fabulous IHP products and sharing them with you!


Hi, I am Vera Wirianta Yates. You can also call me by my nickname Ling. I was born & raised in Indonesia, but been calling Texas home for the past 18 years. I am married and mom to 3 spoiled doggies. My love for paper crafting started back in 1997 when I attended my first scrapbook class and I've been hooked ever since. Soon after I branched out to card making. I love both crafts equally, although I do more cards nowadays. I have my works published regularly on Paper Crafts magazine and I have designed for various companies. Besides paper crafting I love animals, movies & anything with pretty colors. I am excited to join i{heart}papers and looking forward to this new adventure.


My name is Wida Miller... I am a short, chubby, mom of 4 who enjoys glitter and buying craft supplies in bulk. I like to create while listening to Maroon 5 and am a bit too analytical for my own good.  I am looking for like minded crafters who are not intimidated by colorful cards and going rogue when it comes to designs. If you don't mind just being yourself no matter what, then I am the gal for you :)

And we're thrilled to have Jessica Fick joining us as Guest Designer for July & August!


I began my paper crafting hobby when my son was born, wanting to scrapbook all the photos of him and then making handmade cards to send to our family and friends with photos of him to keep them connected with how adorable he was!  Four years later, when my daughter was born I began delving in deeper into rubber stamping and card making... and the rest, as they say is history!  I've been privileged to make some wonderful friends and contacts in our industry and am a better person and paper crafter because of it! I'm so honored to be invited to be a guest designer for i {heart} papers for July and August!  Thank you, Kate for the opportunity to play with the wonderful products in your awesome online store!
