Welcoming a New Design Team Member

Hello, Friends!

I'm just popping in very quickly today with an exciting announcement!  For some time now, I've been searching for another talented designer to add to our team. We needed someone who was comfortable with digital crafting, someone who could do all types of projects, and someone who loved the vintage vibe of Crafty Secrets.   Sandy and I both agreed that the very talented Ginny Nemchak  of Polly's Paper would be the perfect fit for all those categories.  So today, it is my pleasure to welcome Ginny to the team, and to introduce you to her amazing talent. So here's Ginny, in her own words:

I'm Ginny Nemchak and I live in a sweet little town out in the country with my husband of 21 years and 2 almost grown boys.  I am convinced that there is no better living than out on a dirt road.  It's a very blessed life I have.

I have been crafting my whole life in some form...but my creative outlet is now focused on paper.  I enjoy all types: layouts, mini albums, cards.  I have recently discovered a new love for altered art and digital collage.

 I'm looking forward to sharing my projects and being inspired by the other super talented folks on the Crafty Secrets Design Team.  

Ginny and I have been teammates on the Really Reasonable Ribbon and the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge design teams for over a year now, and I am so excited to have her join us here.  She also is on the design team at Graphic 45 and Canvas Corp Brands, so she is one busy lady!   Ginny's artwork is richly layered, delightfully vintage and wonderfully detailed.  You'll see what I mean when you take a look at this wonderful shadowbox she made for her debut.


 

Ginny painted the shadowbox and added bits and pieces from dozens of Crafty Secrets Goodies.  The fairy is from our Altered Fairies Creative Scraps and she's used elements from our Altered Office Stickers, Words from the Heart, and papers from Creating with Vintage Patterns.  Don't you love all the yummy layers?






Ginny  is a card maker extraordinaire, and if you love layers, you are going to love her cards!




I know you'll want to pay a visit to Ginny's blog, Polly's Paper to see more of her gorgeous work.

And, don't spill the beans, but the February Linky party is right around the corner, and the theme might just be Valentine's Day...so you might want to get a little head start!

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for giving Ginny a warm welcome to the team.

On behalf of Sandy Redburn, I wish you joy and creativity!


Cheerio,

kathy
