Lots of News....

I have lots of news to share with you today, both sad and happy. I'll start with the sad.

As many of you know, Jami Bova will be moving back to the states very soon. She will also be jumping back into the workforce, and will be losing some of her creative time. So, she has decided to stop illustrating stamps. It was a very difficult decision for her, but I know we will all just be thankful that she's not giving up the stamping hobby all together :) You can go to her blog to read more details, Jami. We will have stamps by Sgt Stamper for a couple more months. Jami, we will miss your incredible talent, but will still be stalking your blog ;) Thank you so much for illustrating with 2RedBananas!!! We wish you smooth transitions will the changes you are making!

Maraya Gates is also going back into the workforce and is stepping down from the design team. Maraya, we will miss your incredible talents as well! Your layouts and cards always "wow" me with your designs, so smooth and perfect and BLINGY :) We will miss you and wish you lots of luck with your changes and time to continue creating and updating your blog :)

I personally want to thank you both for helping me to get 2RedBananas started!! You both came on with such excitement, great ideas, and creativity! I truly appreciate what you've done here.

Okay, wiping the tears so I can get to the happy stuff.

We have made some additions to the 2RedBananas design team. Deb Felts and Cassie Larson have accepted design team positions. We're really excited to have them both on the team. Such creativity and talent.....just WOW. You've seen Deb's work as she has been a Guest Designer and we just couldn't let her go! She does amazing work!! You can go to Cassie's blog to see what you will be experiencing in the future :) You've also seen her on PCP, the Cuttlebug Challenge, Twinkling Tuesdays and Flutterby Challenge. Check out her blog post for today....such creativity!! Welcome Deb and Cassie and we're so excited to have you on the team.

We also have 2 Guest Designers for May and June. Denise Marzec (Peanutbee on SCS) and Silke Ledlow (Sparklegirl on SCS). Their talent is AMAZING!! I can't wait to see what they have in store for us. I know I will be learning so many things from them.

As far as products go......PINK PAISLEE is now on the website! There are 3 collections: Captivating, Fascinating, and Fetching all with fabulous colors!! There are also alot of different pieces that coordinate with these lines: Chipboard Elements (self-adhesive :), fancy brads, very cool fabric flowers, rub-ons, cardstock sticker borders, elements and alphas, paper, and FUN colored glitter!!!

Pictured here is the Chipboard Elements for the "Fascinating" collection. Aren't the colors just great!!

Be sure to check out all the new Pink Paislee products as well as the Sarah Kay and Rachelle Anne Miller stamps!

Then have a go at the "You're an Animal" challenge - fun stuff! :)
