The countdown has begun for our February 2014 Kit, Sugar Rush. Join us tomorrow night at midnight eastern for the full reveal of this kit packed with sweetness. Reveal night is always full of exclusive offers including a small selection of add-on kits to bundle with your purchase, but set your alarms and arrive on time because they often sell out quickly.
Get to know our January guest designers - Melanie Baier-Gössl and Melissa Hunter! Here's a peek at their work, but be sure to join us at noon tomorrow - their projects will be featured alongside our Creative Team in the Sugar Rush gallery!
Melanie Baier-Gössl : Hello! My name is Melanie (MelBG) and I currently live in Munich, Germany, with my lovely husband of ten years and my two precious daughters, Emma Louise, three years, and Maja Sophie, seven months. I am a trained lawyer but wrote a PhD on Alternative Dispute Resolution while teaching German Law and Family Mediation in London, UK.
I have been crafting forever since my mum and grannies spent hours teaching me new crafts such as knitting, crochet, sewing and origami. My favourite pastime, however, is scrapbooking which I discovered ten years ago on our honeymoon to Boston and New England. Since then I am hooked and love the ability to play with paper, pretty things and different techniques while preserving our family history.
Melissa Hunter : I'm a mother of a very active toddler, and my husband and I have been together for 12 years (married for 4.5 years). My first scrapbook was completed in 8th grade, consisting mainly of construction paper and random photos. I fell in love with paper all over again almost 10 years ago, and soon after discovered the wonderful world of stamping. Along with papercrafting, I love to cook/bake, garden, knit, and read. I also enjoy hiking!
