… a new 2016 Sparklers Design Team!! But first, I’d like to thank my 2015 Sparklers for being so awesome! Kat Benjamin, Louise Forsyth and Charity Feit, thank you for the bottom of my heart for your time and creativity last year. You girls were wonderful and easy to work with! Thank you tons!!
Now for the moment so many have been anxiously waiting for, please welcome the 2016 Sparklers Design Team!! I’m so incredibly excited for this team and all their fabulous talent. Over the next two days, you’ll meet them all and later they’ll tell you more about themselves in their first blog posts as Sparklers DT members. Check them out!
I’m so crazy excited for my new Design Team and all the talent they have to offer. They are a wonderful blend of card makers, mixed media mavens, scrapbooking sensations and project life professionals. Now, I’d like to take the next two days to properly introduce them to all of you. The first four will be spotlighted today and the next four will be spotlighted here tomorrow. Plus, you’ll get to know them and see some of their creative talents that I love so very much.
First up is Amy Lee (otherwise known as The Craft Bunny). We began our crafty adventure together on Etsy and haven’t looked back. This lovely lady has been crafting and making cards like crazy for months. Her YouTube channel is a big hit and growing by the day. I just love hearing her walk her viewers through how she creates her projects. Here are a few of her cards that I just adore and where you can find Amy on social media:

Next, I’d love for you to meet Sarah McClellan! You may have seen her creative and fun YouTube channel or in a few of the scrapbooking Facebook groups out there. This girl’s spunk and creative style really captured by eye last fall. She can certainly work the Heidi Swapp, sequins and anything layered like a scrapbook rock star! Here are a couple of my favorites from Sarah so far. She rocks the photography and the overall layouts! You can also find Sarah here:

The next Sparkler you’re going to adore is Ka Slagoski. Her mad card making skills caught my eye right away on her IG and I was hooked! Her clean style and beautiful use of stamps and dies are what many card makers strive to achieve. When I see a card by Ka, I think of the lovely Jennifer McGuire, who my daughters and I LOVE. Here are a couple of Ka’s cards and her social media accounts.

And finally, to wrap up today’s Design Team reveal, is the talented Yuliya Khudyakova. I absolutely love her beautiful minimalist, creative style. Her layouts pack a lot of visual impact with her use of white space, watercolor and embellishments. Here are just a couple of her layouts and where you can find her on social media.
