New Design Team!

Fall has come {kinda - not really here in southern California, it's been HOT} BUT, the season is upon us and that means that it's time to welcome a new group of ladies to our design team - 

First I'd like to re-introduce Danni as our new Design Team Coordinator - she's just a gem and as her roll is growing and growing here at the Sweet shop - we're excited to have her on! 

Hi Everyone, I am Dannielle, but you can call me Danni! I am so happy to be able to share my projects with you on Sweet Stamp Shops blog. I have been crafting all my life and wouldn't have wanted it any other way! I LOVE coffee, gardening, anythhing outdoors and re-purposing things. I have been married since 2004 and we have two, cool, boy kids, Phoenix and Ryuu, a boy dog(Ninja), and a boy turtle(Tut). YEP, you guessed it...a house full of boys! :) I hope you enjoy all my creations and feel inspired to get your craft on.


We're also happy to welcome back as 'Senior Designers' : 

Hi! My name is Kristen Foreman. I have always been a crafter but recently within the past couple of years was when I got into card making. I'm 24 years old and originally from Florida. I recently moved to sunny San Diego, CA with my husband who is in the Navy. One of my greatest accomplishments was finishing nursing school before moving out here. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two fur babies, Bree and Brody.  

My name is Jessica Pascarella from Pearland, Texas, USA. I am a SAHM of 3 wonderful kids.  My main love is card-making. But have started to expand into scrapbooking and altered items.  My style is mainly Clean and Simple (CAS), but I love to challenge myself to try new styles as well as new techniques.  My favorite stamping technique is paper-piecing. I am super excited to be a part of the Sweet Stamp Shop’s Design Team! And look forward to meet more SWEET fans! Feel free to stop by to see my latest creations: Kissin' Krafts


And, we're excited to introduce our new ladies -

I have two "kids", a 13 year old pup named Princess and a 2 year old kitty named Fog. I am a lover of giraffes, teal, and all things chevron. I have been paper crafting since 2010 and blogging since 2011, and I could NOT be more excited to be joining the SSS team. I am looking forward to sharing my creativity and love of SSS with you all!
