Hi everyone! It is April 2nd and as promised, it is SNEAK PEEK WEEK! Yippee!! Today is our new artist reveal. Tomorrow I will have a sneak peek project, and the day after (the 4th) will be our brand new SP in Color announcement. After that, I will share sneak peeks each day up to our big reveal on April 10th! On the 10th, the whole design team will be hopping AND we have an amazing guest designer joining us for April!! The fun is just beginning. . . let’s get started!!
Today’s the day that I am going to reveal our BRAND NEW ARTIST! I have been absolutely thrilled working with this amazing artist & I am sure you are going to love, I mean LOVE, her work. I know many of you are into coloring (Copic, Prismas, or otherwise), and I wanted to offer amazing lined images from an amazing artist. I also wanted someone with his or her own unique style, so that we just didn’t offer the same old stuff that every other company offers from the same few artists out there. I searched high and low to find someone who had the mad talent I wanted to join our SP Family. I have a feeling y’all are going to welcome our new artist with arms wide open.
Well, folks, let me tell you, this woman’s work is STUNNING as you will soon see! I am constantly amazed with her work. I don’t think it will ever get less exciting to see her work. I am beyond thankful that this amazing, talented lady has joined our SP Family!! I am thrilled & I feel so blessed to have her joining our team & I can’t wait to start seeing you guys using her beautiful designs!!
And if you aren’t a colorer, what are you waiting for?! Grab some coloring tools and join us for some fun coloring. Copic coloring might just be one of my favorite things about paper crafting 🙂
Ok enough of my excitement. It is my greatest pleasure to finally introduce you to Gill Roberts:
Hi I’m Gill and I think I was born with a pencil in my hand. I have drawn, scribbled and doodled ever since I can remember. I was always getting into trouble in school for doodling in my text books. My favourite place in school was the art room. So when I left it was only natural that I should go to Art College. I studied for four years at Cardiff College of Art. When I completed the course I moved to London and took a job in a prestigious artist’s agency where I was fortunate enough to rub shoulders with some of the best illustrators in Britain. Whilst there I began to get small illustrating jobs but it wasn’t until I got married back in Wales that I began to develop my career as an illustrator, all thanks to the support and encouragement of my husband Mike. I began by designing greeting cards and then I was given the opportunity to illustrate some children’s books. I keep pretty busy with this kind of work now but also I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to develop a range of craft stamps for Scrapmaster’s Paradise, LLC. I’m really excited about the launch of this collection, and hope that it will be successful.
Isn’t she delightful?! I love her art & I think you will too. And here are a few of her upcoming stamps so that you can get a glimpse of her amazing art that will come out on April 10th.
|Inner Tube Girl Stamp|
|Swinging Girl Stamp|
|Furever Friends Stamp + sentiment|
|Best Dad Ever Stamp Set|
These stamps along with others in the new Gill Roberts collection will be available starting April 10th. Her single stamps will retail for $7.99 each. Her new 4x5inch sets will retail for $12.99. We are going to release new Gill Roberts stamps on a monthly basis so you will be seeing a lot more of her beautiful designs.
Make sure to leave us a comment below! Thank you so much for helping me give her a big welcome! What do you think of her beautiful stamp sneaky peeks?
Well, that’s all for today. I will have another sneaky peek for you tomorrow. Have a happy & crafty day!!
