The reason I haven’t been posting lately has a lot to with what’s in the mystery box. This year for the very first time, I’ve applied to be on the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team. I spent many hours planning, making and agonizing over the details of all 10 projects: two 3D items, three scrapbook pages and 5 cards. I feel that my entries reflect who I am as a designer and I hope the judges like what I have designed as much as I do. Whether I earn a spot or not I’ll be sure to share my designs with you after convention is over in July. I wish all the best to those who have applied this year.
