And if the amazing eye candy wasn't enough, this chickadee has a fabulous sense of humor. I know you'll love checking out her projects as well as tuning in to her witty blog posts.

Susan Liles comes to us from her blog, Susiestampalot. Her fantastic creations wowed us when she guest designed for Verve in November, and we're so excited to bring her back as a permanent member of the team. Her projects have amazing dimension, are perfectly embellished, and are always fresh and fabulously fun to look at it.

Laura Fredrickson comes to us from her blog, Scrapnextras. Laura has a crisp, clean style that is always perfectly executed. Her creations are a joy to behold with a classy feel and beautiful embellishments. We know you're going to enjoy each and every one of her creations in the coming months.

We also want to congratulate Shannan Teubner who has accepted a position as our new Design Team coordinator. She's an amazing design team member and we're so excited to have her helping to keep us all organized.
