Getting to know the Design Team - Wendy C

am a 38 year old mother of 2, my son is 9, my daughter is 7. I am married to my high school sweetheart. I am a full time working mom in a high stress job, and crafting is my stress release. I try and get up early and so a little every day before work. It is not always possible, and I can always feel the difference in days I don't get my meditation in. I've been a memorabilia saver and crafter all my life, and discovered formal scrapbooking and stamping after my son was born. I love all things crafty, and will try everything once. I do not consider myself to have any one particular style - by choice. I never want to stop growing in my crafting. I am so excited to be part of the Rubber Romance design team, and look forward to getting to know everyone better.

Getting to know the Design Team... Shannon B

My name is Shannon Bracken and I'm a hopelessly addicted stamper. I've been paper crafting for the last 15 years off and on, and jumped back in with both feet in Aug 2008. I've been able to meet alot of great people thru this hobby and have had alot of great opportunities to share my skills with others. I live in Michigan with my 2 cats and 1 very highly energetic beagle. By day I'm a cost analyst so my crafting allows me to express my creative side, as well as provides me with mental theraphy I often need after a long day. I'm super excited to be working with the Rubber Romance team. I look forward to creating inspiring projects with these fabulous stamps and to be inspired by those around me.

Getting to know the Design Team... Sammye Jo

Greetings from the Bluegrass State. I am a twenty something wife, mommy, and self proclaimed Southern Belle who has a passion for paper crafting & sweet tea :) I love the quick satisfaction of completing a beautiful card for a loved one to enjoy, the methodical planning of a scrapbook to be sent down the family line, and the creative venture of altering items to make them something new and exciting! My style is simple, bright, clean, and fresh. I have been stamping for a few years now and love trying new techniques. I recently found a love for stamping on clothing for children! (It is amazing what you can do with a plain white Onesie and a cute stamp!) I love any opportunity to create, learn, and inspire!

Cutie Pie is ready to go!

The Cutie Pie collection is now available in the Etsy store

Rubber Romance's FIRST Design Team

Robin an I would like to take the time to thank everyone who applied. We received DOZENS of applications, and we looked at every single one of them. She was really touched by how many of you are fans of her stamps, which made the decision even harder. At the end of the day she said "Samantha, can I pick 7 instead of 5 " and since she's the boss I said "Of course!" ;)

and here they are..... Drumroll please.... please help me in congratulating.....

Last Call

You have just over 24 hours to get your applications in. Robin and I will then immediately begin looking everything over to decrease waiting time. I know how it feels, I have no patience either. I can't wait to welcome the new members and get to work. So .... the clock is ticking... Could you be part of our first Design Team?

One Week!

There is ONE week left to get in your entries. I'm a real stickler about rules and such and no entries will be taken past the deadline. We have received some AMAZING stuff so far, and I'm busy sorting through it all for Robin. I cannot tell you how excited she is to have a Design Team keeping this blog hopping. Yay!

Here's a fav Rubber Romance card of mine. I can't part with it... also... I have no one to give it to. I just loved the sentiment! Hahaha.. :)

Keep those submissions coming,
Happy Creating,
