Design Team Farewells

Hello, YNS friends!  It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we’re saying farewell to four of our Design Team members today.  I hope you will all take the time to read a little more about these wonderful ladies and join me in thanking them for their beautiful work during their time on the Your Next Stamp Design Team!



Angel originally started with us on our Digital Team but stayed on when we fully went back to our rubber roots. I’ve always admired Angel’s sweet and simple designs with fabulous splashes of colour. Her staging and photography are beautiful and gives her projects that extra sparkle in her photos. We’ll miss her beautiful smile around here, but you can always stay in touch with Angel on her blog – Angel’s Creative World.





Annette only joined us this past January, but the creations she made in her short time with us were amazing! We’ve appreciated Annette’s hard work and dedication to YNS. She’s going to be doing some travelling in the future and now has her hands full with her latest addition to her family – a puppy named Sammy. You can read more about Annette (and Sammy) on her blog, My Clever Creations. She had a way with creating beautiful backgrounds in all her cards and this is exactly why I chose this card to showcase her work! Please join me in thanking Annette for all of her inspiration!

Celebrate 1.1 annette



Brianna also started on the Digi Team and stayed on with YNS to continue designing bright and fun projects. We’re so excited for her as she is about to welcome her newest addition to her family! Brianna’s whimsical style and her happy personality will be missed from her YNS family, but we know she won’t be far. We love the fact that she’s always been so enthusiastic about YNS and that’s why I’ve chosen this card as a favorite from Brianna to showcase. It shows off her style perfectly! To stay in touch with her, please head on over to her blog, Happy Scrapper.

Silly Monsters




Wendy has been one of our longest Design Team members at YNS and she’s been such an amazing asset! She has evolved with YNS and has gone from using our purple cling rubber stamps, digital images to switching over to our crystal clear stamps. She is a true original member at YNS and we’ve enjoyed her commitment throughout the years. Wendy’s signature projects are her step cards and 3D projects. This is one lady who knows how to wow her recipients with fabulous interactive cards and moving gifts! To see what I mean, you should check out her blog, Wake up with Wendy, to see what she’s made lately. You won’t be disappointed as you look at her previous projects.



As hard as it is to say farewell, we’re also very excited that the new release is coming up on August 9th. Stay tuned as previews start on August 8th!


Thanks for stopping by!


Introducing and Welcome Back Carole Burrage

Hello! I have a very special announcement today, but before I move forward with that, I wanted to address all of those who applied to be on the YNS Design Team. Thank you SO much for setting aside the time to put in an application and we are so humbled by the fact that you all want to be apart of our little family! We are currently reviewing the applications but we’re a little overwhelmed with the response! We’re also in the midst of bringing you another new release on December 7th, so we are working hard behind the scenes. We will be sending all applicants a response soon. 🙂

For the big announcement today, the YNS Crew is very excited to welcome back Carole Burrage to the team! Carole is no stranger to YNS – she used to write the most amusing posts and her creative spirit is a force to be reckoned with! I had the opportunity to meet Carole in person at CHA 2012 and I can attest that she is as funny in person as she is online!

I’ll let Carole take it away and introduce herself:


Hi, my name is Carole Burrage, and I’m thrilled to be re-uniting (and it feels so good… 😉 ) with my dear friends at Your Next Stamp.  I’ve been stamping since 2006, and have had the pleasure of serving on many design teams as well as the Splitcoaststamper’s Dirty Dozen (June – Nov. 2008).  I also used to write the ‘Carole’s Creative Commotion’ monthly blog post for YNS (who knows – maybe it will make a comeback one of these days!).  I took a lengthy hiatus from serious stamping to go back to work after several years as a stay-at-home-mom. Thanks to a recent move, I’m once again a SAHM and itching to get those creative juices flowing again. I now live in Durant, Oklahoma, with my husband, two sons, and our two rescue dogs. I’m so grateful to Karen for giving me another opportunity to get crafty with her awesome company and talented team of designers. I look forward to sharing my designs with you!


YAY! I can’t wait to see what you create, Carole! Please go visit her on her blog – Mother’s Little Helper – and give her some love!

Have a fantastic day!


Thank you Jen

I just wanted to take a moment to say farewell to DT member Jen Roach. She has been with YNS since 2011, so many awesome years! With her busy career and family life it was time for her to take a step away from DT commitments. It was a pleasure getting to know Jen and I know she will be missed here at YNS! She not only blessed us with so many wonderful YNS projects but she also helped in the booth at our ScrapFest events which are always so much fun!

Here’s a handful of Jen’s fabulous projects she created over the years…
