Second, we have the pleasure of showcasing our August guest designer, Karol Keo of Stamping with Karol
I’m having so much fun being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  I stamp for fun and relaxation from my full-time job as a mom and wife.  I just LOVE learning creating and sharing everything!” 
Be sure to check out her blog to see her adorable projects. 

And now for our really exciting news... introducing the newest member to the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team, Erica Cerwin of San Antonio, Texas. 

“I was so thrilled to meet Erin and Shannon at convention recently and honored to be asked to join their great team!  I have been a SU Demonstrator for two years, but a paper artist for 15+. I've been making scrapbooks and other paper art since I was a teenager! I am married and have three little girls who give me lots of reasons to make cute scrapbooks and projects. They love to sit in my office with me and play with my punches and stamps while I stamp and scrap. I also have a "day job" that helps support my paper addiction! From August to May I spend my days in the classroom teaching 1st grade. I can't wait to be a part of this fantastic challenge team and look forward to seeing what you create as well!”
We’re so excited Erica’s on our design team and is sharing her creativity with us.  Please also visit her blog Pink Buckaroo Designs to see more of her beautiful projects.
