I DID THIS (PART 1)

It's been a month and a half since I left my job at Stampin' Up to move to Canada. Last weekend I was down collecting the last of my life and went to dinner with my "old" coworkers. I can't tell you enough how wonderful they are. If everyone got to work with as funny, beautiful, caring women as I did, you would be fortunate indeed. I miss my back up singers . . . "Trouble with a capital "T" And that rhymes with "P" and that stands for pool!". You think I'm sucking up right now don't you . . .

Being a product designer is the coolest creative job and I wanted to show some of my favorite stuff I did. So anyone out there looking for a freelance paper product designer, HIRE ME! I'm available.

Usually after designing a product I'm pretty sick of looking at it, but not this. I still love this DSP, Urban Garden. Andrea and I thought we were such geniuses when we put these colors together.


Here is the stamp set I did to go with the silhouette line. I really wanted these pictures, I wonder where they ended up?


Build-a-fairytale . . . Reminds me of my felt boards I played with as a kid. Really fun to design.


Taking the Pink Flamingo paper to review was very heart pounding. I had worked on it for hours the night before and it felt very risky to present. It was so different. But Shelly put it in her line! That was a nice surprise.




Oh Raspberry Tart . . . I knew these colors were going to be to die for. And I don't like pink! I think I had a few eyebrows raised at me when I suggested the combination, but I work with a very trusting group. Kiwi Kiss, I wish that color would always be in style. I have an awful feeling that forest green will be raising it's ugly head soon, it was big in the 80's. Remember?


Well, there is the first installment of my SU! portfolio presentation. I have got to go to bed. WHY AM I STILL AWAKE! I wish I could show you the stuff going in 2010's catalog. It ranks up there with Urban Garden as one of my favorites.

Well...we WERE geniuses with the silhouette line. I still love it all too! Come to think of it, I haven't seen those frames in a long time.

And I can't wait to play with all your new product in the 2010 catalog!

You are a genius and I'm happy to be related to you. In a distant kind of sort of way.
