Design Team Reveal Day 5!

Good morning! Isn't this fun? It's been so fun seeing the team build each day!

Today? Yep! You guessed it! More fabulosity!! This next designer is something special. Her style is just so cool. She's been published loads. She was recently featured as a Moxie Fabber of the Week in July. She's even worked at Stampin' Up! as a concept artist! But I'll let her tell you a little bit more about that herself.

Wait for it...... It's Alicia Thelin of Scrappy Betties!

And here is a little more about Alicia in her own words...
Hi, I’m Alicia Thelin and I am obsessed with creating cards. Ok, well I didn’t mean to invite you to my personal twelve-step meeting… but I just can’t stop!
I’m a born and raised California girl whose been transplanted to little ol’ Herriman, Utah. I’ve been married to my devastatingly handsome husband, Brett, for twenty years. We have three sassy children: Meagan-16, Madeline (Maddie)-13, and my baby Alexander (Alex) 11.
In 1999 I became a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator in order to get out of the house, you know, a little grown-up conversation? I adored learning and teaching all about stamping. A few years later I found myself in the position to leave the home and go back to work full time while my husband went back to college. Blessings come in crazy ways you know! Before I knew it I was working full-time as an Event Coordinator at the Stampin’ Up! home office here in Riverton, Utah. My job blossomed into a Concept Artist for that team. Soon the actual Art Department approached me and felt like I’d be a good fit for their team. Greatest job ever. Stamping with new products all day long, everything in their catalog at my fingertips. Fun days! Oh, but the criticism was hard to swallow…
Eventually my husband finished school with another two degrees and obtained employment. I LOVED my job, but MISSED my kids. Time to come back home. It was excruciating to leave to say the least, but I still have some great friends that I’ve been able to keep in touch with. Not to mention all the mad stamping skills I was able to develop and take with me.
Over the last three years I’ve been re-learning how I like to create and sharing those projects and experiences on my blog, ScrappyBetties. This is my little corner of the paper-crafting world that I hold dear, where I share my h{art}. It’s a place for kind words, encouragement and a dose of reproducible inspiration. I try to make things, and then let you know where I succeeded and any little tips and tricks I may have learned along the way.

Please head on over to congratulate Alicia and continue to join us over the next few days as we continue to reveal more fabulous ladies!!

See you tomorrow!
