If you are seeing this post, you have come to the right place!! I’ve decided to move the SP Blog over to WordPress so that we can have some amazing functionality. Right now, we are under MAJOR construction so please just bear with me if you find any links that aren’t working or if videos/shopping lists aren’t showing up. I don’t have a Sunday Scoop for you this week because of the blog move.
NEW DESIGN TEAM
Today, it is my great pleasure to introduce you to the brand new SP Design Team!! Y’all are going to LOVE the designs these ladies are going to make for you every week. It is about to get even more inspiring around here!! Today’s post is going to be super long so grab your fave beverage, sit back, and enjoy.
Before we introduce the new team & theme, we unfortunately have some goodbyes.
The lovely Marie is leaving us effective immediately. I am so sad to see Marie go because she is not only an AMAZING designer, she is an amazing person. I am glad to call her a friend & I will miss having her on the team. Thank you for all you’ve done for us, Marie!
We are also losing the amazing Melissa. Melissa has been an amazing friend & I have loved having her on my team. She will also be dearly missed. Thank you for being so great, Melissa!
And Pops has decided to step down from the team. Although Pops has only been with us a short time, she is going to be missed a bunch. Thank you for your time with us Pops!
So now it is time to introduce our new theme & new team & share the members who are joining us for another term! First up, the newbies 🙂
Create a handmade gift or tag! We’re thinking Christmas gifts here, but it can be of any theme. Let’s meet the new team & check out what they created.

I am super excited about joining the SP Design Team! I live near Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Scott (a Canadian), our two young kids, Kaitlyn (age 6) and Jackson (age 2), and our dog, Toby. I have been crafty in one way or another all my life but my passion for card design really began about four years ago. My so-called addiction to stamps started when I joined the SP monthly kit club in January and I’ve been hooked ever since! I work at VIMS School of Marine Science at the College of William and Mary and primarily craft in the evenings after the kids have gone to bed or when my husband is off playing hockey. This is my very first design team appointment and I look forward to sharing my creative inspiration with you!
Aren’t these little gift boxes adorable? The perfect size to wrap a variety of small items as holiday presents for friends, co-workers, and teachers! Even better… they’re very easy to create with super cute style.

I am really excited to be joining the SP and CO team. I am a Maryland born girl who now calls York, Pennsylvania home. I am the wife of a retired Navy Chief and a mom of three adult children. I love all things “paper and ink”. I acquired a love for stamping and creating cards about 5 yrs ago.. I enjoy all styles and look forward to trying new techniques/challenges. I look forward to my journey on the DT.
Isn’t this the cutest little bear?? I created a small box that could hold a small gift for someone.
Hi, I’m Lisa and I live in mid-Missouri with my husband and two daughters. I love animals, especially dogs. My yellow Lab is my “baby” and we foster dogs and other animals for our local shelter. My favorite thing about card making is coloring, which is why I love SP and Co stamps. They are so much fun to color! My Copics are my medium of choice, but I also love Prismacolor pencils with OMS.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN
I also want to talk to y’all a bit about our linky party. I have heard from some folks saying for whatever reason, they don’t own any SP stamps. Well you’re in luck because we have some freebie stamps available in the SP Store! This is a place of sharing & inspiration so I really hate to leave anyone out! ANYONE can participate!! We’ve added some new Official rules & I will be adding some detailed instructions to help y’all out if you are having trouble linking up.
Everything is basically the same, but now, I created a cute little button so you guys can show off your SP Love!
OFFICIAL LINKY PARTY RULES:
- Project must be newly created for the weekly theme. Our linky party is here to inspire & get us crafting. No linking up old projects.
- Add a direct link to your project. Don’t just link to your blog homepage.
- Your project has to include at least one SP Stamps. We may feature you over on the SP Facebook Page or in the new SP Newsletter (starting 2014, subscribe now in the sidebar). We have some freebies in the SP Store if you don’t own any SP Stamps yet.
