Stamp School Design Team Call

I am so excited to announce that I will be part of a brand new stamp company opening January 1, 2012 called Stamp School. While Stamp School may be new, it's being opened by Lisa who is the owner of A Walk Down Memory Lane (a paper craft store that has an on-line store and a brick and mortar store location in NW Iowa). Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog may know that I am on her in-store design team and also do the social media for AWDML. I'm thrilled to now be taking on the role of Design Team Coordinator for Stamp School. I have nothing but the highest respect for Lisa and how she runs AWDML, and can't wait to be a part of this new venture. We're looking for a few good stampers to help put the word out about Stamp School and show what these fabulous stamps can do.
