Design Team Tribute

Today we celebrate the design team that has served us for the past year.  And what a team it has been!  I've chosen my favorite project from each of the team members showing their style and their love of SRM.  Thank you to all of the team members who have all contributed each in their own very special way to this team.  I personally appreciate all the beautiful projects that you have created, making SRM Sticker products shine! 

First up is Angélique Jarrier who has a very special mixed media 3-D crafting style.  Here's my favorite project, a beautiful SRM gift bag that is embellished with a SRM Doily and SRM Fancy Sticker Sentiment.  What a work of art!  Thank you Angélique for all of your beautiful projects.  

Next up is Angi Barrs who has a fresh and fun style and loves creating gifty treats.   My favorite is Angi's Valentine muslin bag, adorned with SRM Numbers, Borders and Months.  So sweet!  So Angi!  Thank you Angi for bringing so much  fun and fabulousness to the team.  Your playful projects are always a treat!

Corri Garza loves making gift sets.  This is my favorite from the year.  It combines Corri's many talents including using vinyl and creating cards.  What a fun and fabulous set.  Thank you Corri for the special talent that you have brought to the team.  

Next up is Juliana Michaels who does it all.  Her layouts are magnificent.  Her cards perfection.  Her containers so special and inventive.   But my favorite project of the year was her subway art created with SRM Vinyl.  It's just spectacular.  Thank you Juliana for everything that you do and do so beautifully.  It's been a joy to have you on the team. 

Latrice Murphy loves playing with paper and stickers (or any other crafty thing for that matter) and for my favorite Latrice project it's this set of Christmas cards.  So fun!  And such a great use of all those SRM stickers! :)  Thank you Latrice for your fun, upbeat style.  You always make me smile!

Laurel Seabrook creates the most lovely layouts and I love the way she weaves her clear SRM Stickers throughout.  The Outdoor Theme is one of Laurel's favorites and this layout is one of my favorites.  With her gorgeous photos Laurel slows down life and captures a special moment.  Thank you Laurel for all the beautiful projects that you have created.  You are a special talent. 

Lesley Croghan is such a special crafter.  She creates the most amazing cards and her gift sets are perfection.  Hard to choose my favorite but I just love this fun an fresh summer picnic set.  Doesn't it just make you want to have a party?   Thank you Leslie for your gorgeous work and a special thanks to Leslie for starting the SRM Challenge Blog.  We are having lots of fun with that!  I appreciate all the effort you have put into the team and into the Challenge Blog.  Hugs!


Michelle Giraud loves playing with anything crafty and when she got the new Burlap Bags she went to town creating a great gift set with Tubes, Labels and Doilies.  What a delicious idea! Thank you Michelle for all you have done.  Whether it's stamped cards, altered calendars, containers or gift sets, your work it always special.  And thank you Michelle for being on our SRM Challenge Blog Design Team too!  Love that we get to see more of you!

It is very tough to choose my favorite project from Roberta Rosi but have decided that I totally love this little mini calendar in a box.  Roberta's sense of design is perfection.  She lives in Milan, Italy, the design center of the world, so it makes sense that she would bring this to the team!  Thank you Roberta for each and every project.  I love them all! 

Shelly Kurth brings a minimalist style to the team and I chose her for that style.  And she has never disappointed.  I would love to be a fly on the wall watching Shelly create her projects.  She always ends up with just the right touch of everything that she chooses to use.  Simplicity is the name of the game and perfection is the result.  {{Love}} the Shelly Kurth style!  Kraft Bag + Border + Labels by the Dozen + a bit of bling = Fabulous!  We'll see more of Shelly over on the SRM Challenge Blog as she's on that team!  YAY!

Yvonne Yam does it all with a focus on Mixed Media and yet for my favorite project I was drawn to these simple, elegant burlap bags that Yvonne created using SRM's Take 2 Mr & Mrs Stickers, Wedding Borders and SRM Doilies (which may be Yvonne's new favorite go to product!). Thank you Yvonne for your fabulous projects and for your love of all things SRM.  

And last, but not least, Ann Molvik has brought very something very special to the team this year with her talent in all things knitting and crocheting with twine.  I love this little pumpkin that she created for her Thanksgiving table.  Each place setting had one.  Thank you Ann for showing us lots of wonderful ideas that we never would have thought of by ourselves!  You are amazing!

Once again, thank you one and all, Design Team 2013-14, for a great year!  You have been a joy to work with!  And don't be strangers.  You are always welcome at SRM!  Be sure to share any of your SRM Projects with us on our Flickr.  We look forward to that!  We are almost up to 7000 projects.  We would love yours to be one of them!
