Introducing the 2015 Inspiration Team!

Thank you to everyone who has joined in on our Inspirationals this past year! We’ve had a lot of fun inspiring you to pick up your stamps and create!

It’s time to introduce to you our new Inspiration Team for 2015. But first, we must say goodbye to one of our 2014 team members. Kendra Sand has done a wonderful job over the past year and I am sad to see her go. Thank you, Kendra! You can visit her blog here: Luv 2 Scrap n’ Make Cards.

I am happy to tell you that Lynda Lindley (Blog: Positive Force) and Andrea Slee (Blog: Drea’s Scraps of Inspiration) are both staying on for 2015! They’ve done a fabulous job this past year, wouldn’t you say? And I’m glad to see them return for another year.

Also a big thank you to all of you who submitted your applications for the 2015 Inspiration Team. We had a lot of great designers to choose from, which made it very difficult!

And now I am thrilled to introduce to you two new designers for our 2015 Inspiration Team!

Barb Thompson (Blog: Cards and Paper Fun)

Hi I'm Barb Thompson and my journey into stamping came about 6 years ago when my husband retired, I quit working and we moved to a smaller town in Arizona. I needed a hobby so my sister who is a long time scrap booker and stamper gave me a kit and a few lessons on stamping and as they say I was hooked! My specialty is card making and love coloring with Copics. I hope I can inspire you to dig out those stamps and use them.

Melissa Oeters (Blog: Needful Things)

Hello, my name is Melissa and I live out in the country of a very small town located in Illinois.  I'm happily married and my husband and I have four children, 3 boys and 1 girl.  We also have quite a group of pets including 6 dogs, a cat, and a horse. I started getting into paper arts about twenty years ago when someone suggested I scrapbook.  Little did I know that scrapbooking would be the stepping stone to my paper arts addiction! Everyday that I can I'm working on some project, it's not just a hobby, it's become a way of life for me.

When I'm not involved in a paper arts you can find me volunteering for animal rescues (answers the question about all the dogs, right).  I also ride hunter jumper, do a lot of reading, and am on the local school board.  I am so excited to be joining the Red Rubber Designs Team and do hope that I will inspire you to stamp along with us.

Please join me in welcoming our new 2015 Inspiration Team!


Thank you for your feedback - we love to hear from you!
