With over 125 applications
received and an incredible talent pool, deciding upon the 2012-2013 Design Team
for PSA Essentials was difficult. We narrowed applications down to the top 30
and then to a final 9. We have a mix of
mom bloggers, party planners, DIY home décor enthusiasts, seamstresses, and
card makers this term. The eclectic
mix of talent is sure to make for interesting reading here at PSA Stamp
Camp. I am pleased to announce the 9 new
design team members for the 2012-2013 term over the next two days. Our talented Jennifer Holmes, Mae Armstrong, Kim Moreno, Regina Mangum and Jamie Cripps are fortunately staying on with us, now meet the new faces of our team. I cannot wait to see what these talented ladies come up with using PSA
Essentials Peel & Stick stamps. And
