Welcome New DT Member Kendra Sand

Hello, we hope that your week is going well so far! We are so happy to introduce our latest addition to the Design Team, Kendra Sand! You may recall Kendra was our April 2015 Guest Designer. We fell in love with Kendra’s designs, attitude and her commitment to YNS and we’re so excited that she’s joined the YNS family. August has been a super busy moth so far (thanks to all of you!) and you may have already seen Kendra’s projects from this month.  We couldn’t just let her sneak in – we had to give her a proper introduction! Please help me in welcoming Kendra:

Design Team Farewells

Hello, YNS friends!  It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we’re saying farewell to four of our Design Team members today.  I hope you will all take the time to read a little more about these wonderful ladies and join me in thanking them for their beautiful work during their time on the Your Next Stamp Design Team!

Angel

Angel originally started with us on our Digital Team but stayed on when we fully went back to our rubber roots. I’ve always admired Angel’s sweet and simple designs with fabulous splashes of colour. Her staging and photography are beautiful and gives her projects that extra sparkle in her photos. We’ll miss her beautiful smile around here, but you can always stay in touch with Angel on her blog – Angel’s Creative World.

Anette-Allen

Annette

Annette only joined us this past January, but the creations she made in her short time with us were amazing! We’ve appreciated Annette’s hard work and dedication to YNS. She’s going to be doing some travelling in the future and now has her hands full with her latest addition to her family – a puppy named Sammy. You can read more about Annette (and Sammy) on her blog, My Clever Creations. She had a way with creating beautiful backgrounds in all her cards and this is exactly why I chose this card to showcase her work! Please join me in thanking Annette for all of her inspiration!

Brianna

Brianna also started on the Digi Team and stayed on with YNS to continue designing bright and fun projects. We’re so excited for her as she is about to welcome her newest addition to her family! Brianna’s whimsical style and her happy personality will be missed from her YNS family, but we know she won’t be far. We love the fact that she’s always been so enthusiastic about YNS and that’s why I’ve chosen this card as a favorite from Brianna to showcase. It shows off her style perfectly! To stay in touch with her, please head on over to her blog, Happy Scrapper.

Wendy

Wendy has been one of our longest Design Team members at YNS and she’s been such an amazing asset! She has evolved with YNS and has gone from using our purple cling rubber stamps, digital images to switching over to our crystal clear stamps. She is a true original member at YNS and we’ve enjoyed her commitment throughout the years. Wendy’s signature projects are her step cards and 3D projects. This is one lady who knows how to wow her recipients with fabulous interactive cards and moving gifts! To see what I mean, you should check out her blog, Wake up with Wendy, to see what she’s made lately. You won’t be disappointed as you look at her previous projects.

As hard as it is to say farewell, we’re also very excited that the new release is coming up on August 9th. Stay tuned as previews start on August 8th!

DT Design Process Review | Organization and Getting Ready for 2015

Hello, YNS fans! On behalf the YNS team, we hope you had a fantastic Christmas holiday! Karen and I took a much needed holiday break and that’s why we’ve been sort of quiet on the blog end but we’re slowly getting back on track. As a matter of fact, Karen  always goes all out – if you missed her announcement, YNS is currently holding a Winter Sale!!! Your entire purchase is 30% off. If you received some cash for Christmas, this is a fantastic way to check off some items from your wish list.

Yearendsale2014
The Design Team is still on a break and as Julie announced, we’ve extended the latest Challenge until January 8th. If you didn’t find time to craft over the holidays, here’s your chance to play catch up and join in on our bi-weekly challenge now! There’s always a prize involved.

Even though I say that the Design Team is on a break, I have to give them credit for still working so hard!  Our January release is just over one week away and I know that they will bring you fabulous inspiration to start off 2015. Join us here on the blog starting January 6th for previews. Our Blog Hop and release day will be on January 7th. Would you like a small hint at what we’re releasing? Remember our little science guy that we previewed in the DT Call?

Scientist

EUREKA – he and his deLIGHTful buddies will become some of your favourite YNS images! I’m totally MAD about him and we’ll have a special guest joining us to help showcase this set! Eek! I can’t wait!!! All DT members, including our latest two gals, are excited about this new release and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Speaking of the new year, I was just chatting with Karen about setting personal goals and one we equally shared was to be more organized – in every aspect of our lives! I bet some of you have set your goals to be more organized, yes? Does that include being organized on the crafty level as well? We just finished up our Design Team Series Posts where each DT member shared her creative process with you. If you missed out any of them, I’ve linked up each post below. Check ’em out, you may find one or a few new ways to organize your crafty stash which will enable you to be more productive in the craft room.

Thank you Jen

I just wanted to take a moment to say farewell to DT member Jen Roach. She has been with YNS since 2011, so many awesome years! With her busy career and family life it was time for her to take a step away from DT commitments. It was a pleasure getting to know Jen and I know she will be missed here at YNS! She not only blessed us with so many wonderful YNS projects but she also helped in the booth at our ScrapFest events which are always so much fun!

Here’s a handful of Jen’s fabulous projects she created over the years…

Very Exciting News!

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin…hmmm

Let’s go back 4 years ago today, Aug 6 2009, it was the day before the YNS website launch. After a year of hard work the big day was finally here and I was so over the top excited to introduce the world to Your Next Stamp! I don’t expect anyone to understand the amount of work it takes to start a stamping business or keep it going, don’t worry I’m not going to bore you with all the details because what really matters is YOU, my amazing YNS fans! THANK YOU for all your love and support! It’s all of you that keep the excitement alive here at YNS and make it possible for me to keep bringing you exciting new stamps and dies! You truly are an amazing bunch of creative individuals who motivate and inspire me every single day! I’ve always said that YNS is driven by hard work and passion for what I do, I wouldn’t have all this drive and passion if it wasn’t for all of you and my loving supportive family who allow me to work crazy hours and never complain when all I do is yap about YNS from morning to night! xoxo

Now let’s talk about this exciting NEWS I mentioned in the title of this post, shall we?

You may have noticed that we normally bring you our blog hops and new releases on the 22nd of the month but since tomorrow we are celebrating Your Next Stamp’s 4th birthday and we have something very special planned! 

Over 4 years ago (that’s right before YNS even opened) I contacted an illustrator asking for some exclusive designs for YNS. Unfortunately, for YNS, she was locked into a contract with another company at the time so we could not work together and decided to say in touch. We touched base over the years and finally were able to work together in 2013!

I can’t even begin to express my excitement to finally introduce you to our newest YNS Illustrator…Oh my gosh, I’ve been waiting over 4 years for this…drum roll please…

Please help me welcome Penny Johnson to YNS!

Here are a few words from Penny about herself and her company Omnia Designs…

Omnia Designs Ltd is a family business run by husband and wife team, Laurence Attrill and Penny Johnson. They have one studio assistant – Desmond the cat.

Penny is a commercial artist, designer and illustrator, she loves experimenting with colour and creating artworks spontaneously, as well as designing to commission for publishers and manufacturers. Penny produces work in a wide range of styles including cute, quirky, vintage retro, abstracts and florals, she specializes in character development for a variety of products such as stamps, children’s books, greeting cards, toys, packaging, as well as bespoke artwork to commission. She draws and paints in Photoshop using a wacom pen and tablet as well as traditional media such as watercolours and pencils.

Laurence is a designer maker, he also takes care of the computers and administration at Omnia Designs.

Working from their studio and office at home is a lifestyle; even when Penny and Laurence are not actually at their desks, Omnia Designs is always present and they continually gain inspiration and new ideas from everything they do.

Laurence makes music, and is a talented joiner, to relax he enjoys driving round the local countryside.

Penny enjoys cooking and socializing with her friends, she likes swimming and loves the sea, and says that the best, most enjoyable job she has ever had is being a Mum.


 Penny is an amazing lady and a pleasure to work with, I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know her and I can’t wait to share her new YNS collection with you! I won’t leave you without a peek so here’s a preview of the new stamp line…


 Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our very special Birthday Blog Hop Celebration! 

Stampy hugs!
