Hey, Stickles fans! We have a rather large post for you today, but we promise it's full of super exciting information!
We think it's fun to change things up every once in a while, and we've got some brand new, exciting changes happening at ATS starting THIS month!
What are those changes, you ask?
- Before, our linky parties were geared towards using a certain color of Stickles. Now, instead of specifying colors, we're giving you themes and you can create any project using any Stickles as long as the project follows the theme.
- We have a brand new, Mixed Media Monday feature coming to the blog! Every Monday, DT member and mixed media artist, Ann, will be sharing with you different mixed media projects made using Stickles! Check back this Monday, August 5th, for the first post!
- Starting in September, we will also be hosting "Featured Fan Fridays" every Friday! Guest designers will get to share their Stickled projects with us and even get to participate in our blog hops. If you're interested, check out the "Want to be featured?" page, right here on the blog!
Phew! Ready for the next segment? Let's say hello to our brand new, design team members! Their info can also always be found on our Design Team page. Make sure to stop by their blogs and say hi!
Hi, I am a SAHM living in in Homestead, Florida with my husband, my son, a long hair Chihuahua and a cat that adopted us 6 months ago. I have been scrapbooking all my life and card making for almost 7 years now. I still don't know what my style my cards are, but I incline to bright colors and cartoonish images and design them myself. My motto "less is more," even though at the end I may have added some bulky stuff too! I am very honored and proud to be on this wonderful design team!
"Hi! I am Angeline. I only started my obsession over all things scrappy 1 1/2 years ago when I first bought my first starter kit from a Groupon deal. From then on, it never stopped! I love to create and I make cards, mini albums, art journals, altered projects... scrappy makes me happy! :) And what girl doesn't like bling? Stickles is just the perfect way to add the extra needed touch to your scrappy project. I am glad to be on this team and can't wait to show you amazing things you can do with Stickles."
"Hi, I'm Cathie. I am 45 years old, and a mom of 2 . My son is 21 and my daughter is 16, I've been married for 23 years. I live in San Diego but am originally from Philly. I have been crafting for 25 years now and my love is paper crafting. I love that I can take a few pieces of paper and make a lasting memory scrapbook page or a handmade card to make someone smile. I love to be able to share my projects and ideas while trying new things as well. I'm always up for a challenge and some bling!"
"I live in Wisconsin and have two grown children; Jaci and Josh. Making cards, crafting, and reading is what I enjoy doing whenever I can! I'm also addicted to Pinterest...and love it. I have fun blogging and started my blog in December 2012! I am a craft supply junkie and a hoarder of some... especially paper. My style could be called eclectic and I often use some type of distressing in my cards. My favorite stamps are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps and Tim Holtz. I love Stickles and am so glad I have this opportunity!"
"Hi My name is Laura Davidson. I live in Strathroy Ontario Canada. I am a single Mom to 3 grown children and Nanny to 5 grandchildren. I work full time as a nurse in a nursing home. I love to scrapbook and make cards.. I absolutely LOVE Stickles. It is one of my favorite go to items when crafting. I love to learn new techniques and will try anything once. I am so happy to be part of this design team."
