Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to our wonderful DT members, Linda and Sylvia, and also announced that the rest of the current DT are staying for another term! YAY!
TodayI have the pleasure of introducing 2 wonderful ladies who are going to join our YNS Design Team for the new DT term beginning March 1st! Please join me in giving a warm YNS welcome to Diana and Dana…
My name is Diana and I currently live in Missouri. I’m originally from New York so I’m a true City Girl turned Country Girl. I live with my true love Kelly and our 3 babies (kitty babies that is). I have been scrapbooking for over 8 years, and just about 2 years ago, I discovered my love for card making and stamping. I love coloring and creating. I do work a full time job, but evenings and weekends my crafty side emerges, and the rest is history. I’m so very excited about being on the YNS DT and honored to work with all of the talented ladies here.
Hi, I’m Dana and I have been stamping for over 12 years and enjoy every minute of it. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 18 years and I’m the proud mom of two wonderful children (ages 20 and 15). I started stamping after attending a home party for Stampin Up and I haven’t stopped since. I love all kinds of challenges and love searching the internet for exciting new techniques. Right now I’m ga-ga over Copic Markers but I still enjoy using chalks, glitter, watercolors and other mediums. I can’t wait to get started on the DT.
Welcome ladies – we are super excited to have you join us!
So our full Design Team line up from March 1st will be:
We have lots of fun things happening here at YNS over the next 6 months! Look for my new YNS blog design very soon and then let the fun begin with a super cute March stamp release! Keep popping by to check out all the amazing DT creations, contests, new releases and much more…if you want to receive updates via email, please subscribe to the YNS blog.

—- I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s Eve! It was pretty low key here as Chris had to work and Brandon passed out at 8 pm so I just chilled and watched some TV and got caught up on some work stuff.
I’m excited for the New Year as it’s filled with lots of wonderful events like ScrapFest and CHA and that means lots and lots of yummy new stamps!!! YAY!!! Be sure to mark your calendars and join us for a HUGE new release blog hop on Jan 7th and then stay tuned for my amazing CHA release! I’ve been keeping this release a secret for way to long now and I can’t wait for you to these this fabulous new collection designed by the very talented Fhiona Galloway! That’s all I’m going to say about that, for now anyway *grin*
As for today…I’ve been busy cleaning up the office and I found lots of unmounted rubber from the days before YNS stamps came mounted on cling sooooo I’ve decided to start a clearance bin at the YNS store to clear out the unmounted stock. There are some super fantastic deals with very limited quantities so scoop up these fabulous stamps while you can! Plus my inventory blow out sale is still up and running but it ends tomorrow so hop on over to http://www.yournextstamp.com/ and grab some goodies!
I’ve been busy organizing and haven’t had a chance to get crafty so here is a super cute New Year’s card made by our very talented Maureen!

This Monday I’m celebrating my 34th birthday! YAY! Thank you to everyone who have already sent me early birthday wishes!!! To celebrate I decided to have a…
Birthday Bash SALE!!!
At first I was going to put some of my favorite stamps and items on sale but I quickly realized that everything in the YNS store are my favorites!! LOL Instead I randomly selected stamps and placed them into discount bins for 10% – 40% off HERE.
I LOVE bling and fun buttons so I also decided to put all the brads, buttons, pearls/gems and baubles as sale so be sure to check these items out as well!
Also I now carry individual pots of twinkling H20’s so be sure to check out these sparkly paints! Those of you who met me in Oshawa this past weekend know that these are one my favorite products along with the embellie gellie!!! We all had so much fun at the make and take table!
