— Our new Design Team Members!!! YIPPEE!!!
Ok so before I reveal the names of our fabulous new DT members I’d like to thank everyone for applying. I know I’ve said this before but I really do appreciate all of your support and your love for YNS stamps! I find picking new DT members one of the toughest part of running a stamp company because you are all so very talented and I wish I could just scoop you all up but reality sets in and I know I can only have a handful join me. If you did not make the team this round please know that I would love for you to apply again for my next term so look for that announcement sometime in January. Plus I will be asking people to join us as guest designers over at the YNS challenge blog and one sure way to be noticed is to play along with our challenges using YNS images!
Now I’m sure you’re interested in meeting our new DT members so without further ado I am super excited to introduce you to…
Welcome to the YNS family!!! I look forward to working with all of you and seeing all your fabulous YNS creations!
Look for their very first project on September 1st which just happens to be the day I’m releasing some new Halloween and Fall stamps!
I am also very pleased to let you know that Maureen is staying with us and Kerri is now taking on a new and exciting position as our PCP Fan Club Coordinator so look for lots of exciting and fun news from Kerri starting in September. Be sure to join our PCP Group today as I’m sure you won’t want to miss out on any of the FUN and GIVEAWAYS!
Plus Simonne my dear friend and amazing DT Coordinator is stuck with me for life (lol) so she ain’t going anywhere so look for lots more super cool blinkies and well organized hops in the near future!
Also we sadly have some team members leaving us so be sure to check out my blog the last week of August when I’ll be showcasing some of their DT projects and sending them off with style :o) Love you all!!!

—– It’s time for another YNS Challenge! YIPPEE! I’m your hostess for challenge #22 and since tomorrow is our 1st birthday hop celebration I decided that our theme should be BIRTHDAYS!
I decided to ink up Hula Hoop Fhiona for this special occasion! I love her…she just makes me smile! I used some of her fun accessory stamps to create the dp and had so much fun colouring the images in using one of my new fav finds…twinkling H2O’s! I’ve been trying to get my hands on some these shimmery paints for the longest time and let me tell you…it was worth the wait! I love them!!! No, I’m not affiliated with them nor did anyone send me some so I could brag about them…I just saw them in an Australian craft magazine and knew I had to get my hands on some!

I’d like to take a moment to welcome the talented Andrea Murdock to our YNS stamping family for the month of August!!! So glad to have you with us Andi!!!
Check out this super adorable Cupcake Cutie Fhiona card Andi created along with a bit of info in her own words…
Hi, my name is Andrea but I also go by Andi. I have been married to my best friend for 16 years and we have 2 daughters. Our house is always filled with laughter as we all like to think we are comedians and try to out do each other at making our family laugh! I have been papercrafting for about 10 years now and my addiction hasn’t slowed down a bit! I am not sure what I do more though- buy supplies or actually create- it may be tied! I am even getting better at using my pretty paper and ribbons and not just hoarding it lolz! My favourite medium to work with are copic markers and I love to find new ways to use stamps to show their versatility. My daughters like to craft with me and I have even learned how to share my copic markers without having my eye twitch hee hee! I fell in love with YNS images as they were so fun not only for me to play with but my daughters went nuts over them! They have such a fun whimsical look to them that they are a great addition to my crafting collection. I am so excited to be part of YNS’s August team!

We’re celebrating my father’s birthday this weekend and he loves fishing and relaxing on his boat so I thought this was the perfect stamp for his card! I’ve used Ethan out on the pond and just couldn’t resist pairing it up with this adorable 3 Bugs in a Rug DP.
I thought this was the perfect time to share with you a few cute pictures of Brandon. He got to go fishing with Grandpa for the first time this past week and he had so much fun playing with all the rubber worms in his pail plus ‘bumpa’ (this what Brandon calls him) let him drive the boat! LOL
Plus to celebrate Dad’s birthday I’ve got a sale going on over at the YNS store…
