The New Girls, Goodbyes, and one more thing...

I hope you are as excited as I am- today we reveal the new girls who are joining the Runway Inspired Challenge Design Team!  Below you will find out a little bit about them, as well as their favorite clothing and/or accessories :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------



Hello, my name is Nina Yang. It is an honored to be here with the amazing design team of Runway Inspired Challenges. I have been interested in stationary and packaging design since a little girl. Paper crafting and stamping came after I started working from home in 2011. Fun & cute, clean & simple are my favorite styles. I hope to offer something new or inspiring in each of my projects. 


-----------------------------------------------------------------



My name is Pamela and I came from Hong Kong, but moved to Canada at a very young age.  I am currently working in an Engineering company by day and a part-time accounting student by night.  I started arts and crafts when I first learned how to knit and crochet from my mom. Since then, I have also done beading, acrylic painting and web graphic designing. Many of my friends often wonder why I chose to major in accounting in university!



-----------------------------------------------------------------



Hello! I am Tasnim. I grew up in Saudi Arabia and moved to USA in 2006 to pursue my undergraduate studies. In 2010, I completed my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Following my graduation, I moved to Long Island where I now live with my husband and our baby daughter.
I have always loved arts and crafts. As a child, I made cards, collected stickers and always looked forward to attending my favorite class; ART. I discovered stamping in 2011 and since then my collection of stamps has grown exponentially! With so many inspiring blogs out there, I decided to start one myself earlier this year. I like to make clean and neat cards, usually with an interesting focal point. However, I do admire other styles and find inspiration in other people’s work. I am both excited and humbled to be joining the Runway design team. I hope to inspire others to share and develop their creativity through art.



-----------------------------------------------------------------



I am Virginia Lu from Ontario, Canada. I could not be more thrilled to be part of the Design Team for Runway Inspired Challenge! I have been a huge fan of RIC since this challenge blog started and each and every time I participated, I learned a bit more about card design and style. I have been an avid card maker since 2008 and have enjoyed my paper crafting journey since.  My favourite style is Clean and Simple. I like to add a “wow” factor to my cards as it gives the receivers a lasting impression and a sense of delight and charm. I hope to spread the love of this challenge blog so that you will feel as inspired as I do!


-----------------------------------------------------------------



I am a scrapbooker and cardmaker, a mom of 4 and a nurse practitioner, a analyzer, a worrier, and pretty darn funny if I do say so myself! I consider my design aesthetic "fresh CAS".  RIC was the first challenge I ever entered when I started my blog in January of 2012. (I lost, bummer). I shop at TJ Maxx and could never fit into any of these runway outfits ;) My personal decorating aesthetic is BEACHORADO (also the title of my blog) which combines my love of beachy natural tones and the Colorado rustic vibe, the state which I now live. 


-----------------------------------------------------------------

An awesome group, right?!  Please welcome them to the team by leaving them a comment here or on their blogs!! :)

Sadly, along with the exciting new additions, we will be saying goodbye to two of our designers- Cristina Kowalczyk and Sarah Jay.  I want to thank both of you for being so amazing and for helping me launch the Runway Inspired Challenge by joining the DT.  I'll miss you both! 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

One last thing- I wanted to let you know that we will have a Guest Designer for one challenge each month!  Our first (top secret!) guest will be joining us on December 4th along with the new DT members!  See you then!!
