Hi everyone! I am so excited to be writing to introduce myself to all of you. I’m Samantha Shepard, the new Marketing Director at Studio Calico. I am beyond excited to be a part of this awesome group of folks and get to work with all of you! A little bit about me: I am first and foremost a mom. I have two awesome little girls (ages 4 years and 20 months )and a new little man will be joining us very soon. I have been working in sales and marketing my whole career - mostly in the IT world. I have a sewing machine and a silhouette sitting on my desk next to me as I type this. I fear they do not get as much of a workout as all of your equipment does though! Although I am an amateur compared to this community, I am in constant amazement at what the crafting community creates and I look forward to learning from all of you what is possible with the awesome materials Studio Calico brings to you each month.
Now for the fun part of this post. I am a little crazy… ok scratch that. I am BORED with being conventional and normal in this life, so I like to do things that are a little silly sometimes and a lot fun. If you’re not having fun then what is the point, right? The best part about my silliness is that you are going to benefit!
Here’s what I did, I snuck into the warehouse and stole some awesome goodies to give away to one lucky person!! You have to watch the video and see how to enter. You’ll also get to see what I stole right off our shelves. ;) Post your entry as a comment right here on the SC blog - you have until Friday!
Good luck and again, I am so excited to get to know all of you and be so inspired by your creativity.
Second star to the right, and straight on till morning! Our Neverland reveal is today - join us at noon EST for the subscriber presale, and at midnight EST for the full reveal. You can shop for the kits here - but this link won't show the new Neverland kits until noon EST for subscribers and midnight EST for everyone else.
Our guest this month is the talented Lexi Bridges. We're excited to share what she's made with the Neverland kits - you'll be able to find her in the Scrabook and Project Life Creative Team galleries.
The digital files that coordinate with Neverland are now available! These files will only be available until March 26th and are a great way to stretch the contents of your kits.
