Happy News!

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  We have lots of great news to announce on the blog today!  First I want to introduce you to our newest design team member - Jinny Newlin!  We think you're going to love Jinny's style!  Here's a little bit more about her in her own words! 

DT_JinnyNewlinBio

Jinny Newlin

My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up.  I am a former kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife, of 15 years, to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to Ezekiel (13), Adina (7) , and Kaden (2).  When I'm not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, taking pictures, blogging at Soaring, and of course, paper crafting.  My love for the latter started, over fourteen years ago, at a Stampin' Up! workshop: but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon.  I've been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs, and am just thrilled to have the privilege of joining Poppystamps Design Team!  I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating! 

I hope you'll give Jinny a warm welcome!

More good news...   Two new look books for you to see! So what's a "Look Book"  It's an on line book for you to get ideas and see samples made with the newest products!  There is a complete index in the back of each book where you'll find all the ingredients used to create each design too!  Each book is as unique as the designers who create them.
