A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell

You have probably noticed over the past week that many of our designers have been sharing their "last" post as a member of the Newton's Nook Design Team. We will be having a refresh our team for January 2017. Tomorrow we will be sharing the announcement for our new Design Team but I wanted to take a minute today to say THANK YOU to these amazing designers, some of whom have worked with us for two years or more!

Scroll down to see who we are saying farewell to and check out some of their incredible work! I picked four of my favorites from each designer but it was so hard to narrow it down! All these ladies have so many amazing projects on their blogs! You can click through any of the images to go to their blogs for the original posts.

Lydia Evans

We loved Lydia's clean and simple style and elegant cards. The images really pop off the cards and she uses such vibrant colors too!  You can continue to visit Lydia at Lydia Evans Design.

Jess Gerstner

Jess is always wowing us with new techniques and ideas! We loved her quick and easy card sets and use of bright cheerful colors! You can continue to visit Jess at Jess Crafts and Jess will also be helping us with our Inky Paws Challenge in 2017. 

Crafty Math-Chick:

We loved how Crafty Math-Chick always came up with unique ways to use our images! Her adorable projects often feature fun 3D items too like the adorable puppy treat box below! You can continue to visit Crafty Math-Chick at Canines and Card Designs.

Stephanie Muzzulin:

Stephanie has such a good eye for combining colors and layering patterned papers! Her cards are so sweet and pretty! You can continue to visit Stephanie at Handmade Creations by Stephanie.

Kimberly Rendino:

Kimberly has such an amazing range of styles. Wether she's using bright copic coloring techniques or soft colors and vellum, her cards are sure to make you smile! You can continue to visit Kimberly at Kimplete Kreativity.

Danielle Pandeline:

Danielle creates such amazing cards using ink splatters and distress ink techniques! We really love all the fun ways she combines these techniques with our cute critters! You can continue to visit Danielle at Girl Racer Scrap.

Yukari Yoshioka

Yuki has created so many fun scenes using our stamps! We love all the ways she combines them with dies and fun layouts to create the most adorable cards! You can continue to visit Yuki at Handmade by Yuki.

We have enjoyed working with all these ladies SO MUCH! We want to thank them again for all their amazing creations and wish them all the best in their future endeavors!
