No more Trick or Tease! (well maybe a little)

Finally! I can announce the exciting news that I've been tormenting you with. ;O) I've started my first design team position! (Jumping up and down!) Can you tell I'm ultra thrilled to be a guest designer for Paper Garden Projects? I've been playing with the Cruelest kit (of adorable eat cake graphics stamps with embossed patterned paper & blingy treats!)

Now, I know why people buy kits. It's like a triple-shot of mojo! I can't wait to tell you all about it and show you my fiendish creations. ;O)= I'll be linking up the kit, so you can get it too if you want to play along.

Enabler Alert: I'll also be linking supplies in the Paper Garden Projects store. (Cathrine's got some gorgeous stuff & great prices there. Copics are on sale for 20% off [
she has them for $4.76 (until Wed. Sept 10th) I paid $8.00(!) with tax somewhere else.] I've been trying to ignore the bright beautiful colour people get with Copics, but how's a girl supposed to resist that price? Obviously, I have to get some, so I'll be bugging & stalkin' you all for Copic pointers.)

So..just a wee taste of each of the posts (tutorials & templates & schtuff) that will start tomorrow and go on for 13 days of Halloweenie! heeheehee I feel like a little kid!

Happy BOO to Fabulous YOU! :O)=

Kim Etherington said...

It's about time someone asked you to be on a design team. I've wondered for quite awhile why no one had. I saw all of this in person ladies and it's Funtabulous fun! It's amazing in real life! The pictures don't do it a stitch of justice. I was in awe when I saw her projects. My girls giggled at them. They are fun for all ages.
Congrats Mel! You put so much into your blog and you deserve to be on many more design teams. These companies are missing out!

Julie S. said...

Congrats! I am amazed that it took anyone this long to grab you -- but I also hope that you won't sacrifice all that you do/share with us to do too many Design Teams (some folks are way too involved, and it seems that they can't do some of the "inventing" work because they have too much to do and too little time!)

I _know_ that won't be you! (wink)

Sue from Oregon said...

Can't wait to see what that brain of yours has been concocting...Big Congrats...that is pretty cool!
