Announcing Our 2016 Design Team!

Posted on Jan 18, 2016 3:00:00 PM

We are SO excited to announce our brand new design team today!

Before we unveil our new team members, we'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who applied. It was such a difficult decision to choose just six members from all the terrific applications we received. We can't believe all the talent and love for our products that was sent to us over the past few weeks—it is certainly amazing to see everyone's projects and read their stories! If we could've given everyone a place on our team, we definitely would have! This will be a revolving team, so if you didn't make it this time, we would love for you to apply again for the next team!

And without further ado, please welcome these six wonderful ladies to our newest design team. Stop by their blogs, check out their amazing work, and leave them some love! And most certainly make sure to keep visiting the Paper House blog to see what kind of crafty goodies our team is cooking up!
