Welp, here we are.  The very last blog hop for the 2013 Artisan Design Team.  I must say that this year has been spectacular!  It's been fun for me to get to know these 9 amazing women and learn from them and grow as a creator.  I look up to all the other Artisans and wonder how it was possible that I ever got to this point with them.  These ladies are truly spectacular and I will cherish our time on the ADT forever.  Thank you, Stampin' Up!, for affording this opportunity to me for 2 years.  I have truly been blessed beyond measure.

I love them all, my Artisan girls.

I'm so excited to see what the new Artisan Design team will create.  Onward and upward.

Love, love, LoVe you all!  Thank you for following my blog.  I hope you'll continue to follow me and make me feel special with all your comments.  You haven't seen the last of this fun blog hop.  The 2013-2014 Artisan Design team has decided to carry on a blog hop on the last friday of every month.  We're calling it Fancy Friday.  So be sure to check out our first hop on August 29th. 

Never fear; I'm not going anywhere.


I am addicted to watercoloring on my paper crafts.  I cannot stop!  How adorable are the large polka dots after you color on them with the aqua painter?  Seriously in love.  Try it.  You won't regret it.  Did you see my Stampin' Up! blog post about how I watercolor?  See it here:

sitm - big reveal

Stamps in the Mail is G R O W I N G!!!

Starting with Round 1 Month 2 (registration starts TODAY-Aug 10) you will now get 4 Artisans for the price of 1.

What exactly does this mean?
When you register for Stamps in the Mail you will now be tapping into the creative brains of 4 past and present Artisan Design Team members.  How amazing is that??!!  It's a whole lotta awesome, if you ask me.

Meet my collaborators:

My favorite part of all of this is that we're all friends.  I love these gals!

Jane Lee, that's ME!  I am a two-time Artisan Design Team member (2012 & 2013).  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 10 years and absolutely LOVE creating projects with paper.  My style is urban and grungy with splashes of traditional.  I love sewing and stitching on projects as well as up-cycling items like cardboard and chicken wire (I know!!)  I also like creating projects with clean lines and white space.  You never know what I'm going to create but it'll always have a "Jane" feel.  Get out your Aqua Painters because I cannot get enough of watercoloring!!


 photo BeckyCowley_zps23c0475d.jpgBecky Cowley is a 3 (yes, 3!) time winning Artisan Design Team member.  Her style is clean and WOW!  I absolutely love everything she creates.  Her projects have inspired me time and time again.  Becky and I have known each other for a long time but have only become super amazing friends within the last year.  Why did I waste so much time not getting to know her?  She's fantastic!!  Lesson learned.

 photo CathyCaines_zpsfeb6656d.png
Cathy Caines was on the Artisan Design Team with me last year.  After one conversation with her I knew we'd be great friends.  Her style is out-of-this-world AMAZING!  Cathy has the ability to think outside the box.  Like, WAY outside the box.  I absolutely love how her brain works.  She is a scrapbooking guru.  Watch for Stamps in the Mail Scrapbook Add-ons.  Yeah, I love her.  Oh, did I mention she's from Canada?  She is.  She's rad.



 photo AllisonOkamitsu-Version2_zpsdd8e1cf4.jpgAllison Okamitsu is on the Artisan Design Team this year.  SO awesome!  I'm so excited to see the creations she'll be making with the new team of 16 members!  Quite a jump from the previous 10 members.  Allison's style is contemporary cool -  funky and fun with a splash of the traditional.  Allison also has the amazing talent to carve ANYTHING with the Undefined rubber.  Need a custom stamp?  She's your gal.  Allison is silly and loud.  I think she's fantastic!  Allison is also from Canada.  Cool, eh?



Are you stoked??!!

So, now when you join my Stamps in the Mail subscription each month you know that you will be getting 4 Artisans for the price of 1.  Where else can you get such a deal??!!

All my USA friends can sign up for my Stamps in the Mail subscription now by leaving a comment in this post or sending me an email:  naptimestamper@gmail.com.  I'll send you further directions from there.  Did you miss out on Month 1?  No worries, just add the Tap, Tap, Tap set, Epic Day Washi Tape, and Black Baker's Twine to the Month 2 invoice.

Yay!

I'm so excited for this new venture in crafting.

Aren't you?

Sign up for this fabulousness today!

When did this happen?  The 2nd to last Artisan Blog Hop for the 2013 team is already here.  Crazy. 

For my 2nd-to-last project I decided to create something simple but something that made me happy.  That means it has stitching, watercoloring, flower fluffing, and glimmer.

Simple and shiny.

PS:  Those arrow heads (triangles) were done freehand.  I love how they turned out!

This month is bittersweet for me.  It's the last month of being part of the Artisan Hop with the 2013 Artisan Design Team.  These ladies have become so much more than friends.  I feel like we're family.  Friends for life!!

This card is SO simple and yet it feels busy.


...yet clean.

I know.

Weird.

I like it.

Did you notice my faux epoxy dots?
It's just Crystal Effects.
LOVE!
