Introducing 2014 Design Team Members Kathy Skou & Wendy Sue Anderson

We are so excited to start introducing you to this year's Design Team here and there. We'll surprise you with these posts and mix it up with some sneak peeks of new collections coming out next week at CHA. So let us kick it off with the new year and introduce to you one of our new team members along with one of our returning members. Welcome to Kathy Skou and welcome back Wendy Sue Anderson. 

Kathy Skou
Hi name is Kathy Skou and I am BEYOND THRILLED to be a part of the 2014 Doodlebug Design Team! 
About Me I live in Massachusetts with my husband, and our 15 year old daughter.  We also have 2 spoiled kitties who rule the roost.  When I'm not running Mom's Taxi Service, I do some volunteering in town and also some design work & teaching at my LSS Right at Home Scrapbooking.  I also currently design for The Twinery and Paper Issues.  I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years now.  I'm mostly a layout kind of girl, but have been dabbling more into altered items.  If I had to describe my style it would be light and playful...I love adding some whimsy to my work and scrap the everyday moments.  Doodlebug Design was my first manufacturer "crush".  I love the bright colors and adorable embellishments. (I am still hoarding every color of Paper Frills...)  Doodlebug complements my style completely!

My best "fan girl" moment:  Getting to go the Doodlebug booth at CHA this past summer!! (There was swooning involved..!) Where you Can Find Me My Happy Place (Blog) Creative Resume (DT work, publications) I am a social media addict!  You can find me: Facebook Pinterest Twitter Instagram My Galleries Two Peas Some Favorite Doodlebug Projects This was hard to narrow down, but here are a few of my favorite Doodlebug projects! Octoberfest 2012 - Pictures of my daughter & friends at a neighborhood Octoberfest using Happy Harvest.
Made for Each Other - I created this to celebrate my 21st wedding anniversary.  I thought the Cup of Jo Doodlepops from the Day to Day Collection were a perfect fit!!!
Merry Christmas Card - This card was inspired by the Holiday Home Doodlepop.  As soon as I saw it, I envisioned a wintry scene!

High-top Pencil Holder - As soon as I saw this SVG file, I thought of the Take Note Collection.  I thought the colors were perfect and I love the Expressions paper.  I also couldn't resist making washi tape aglets on the end of my laces!

Boo Wall Hanging - Leave it to Doodlebug to make a spider cute.  I used Halloween Parade to decorate these letters created from SVG files.  The cute little embellies complete the project!
That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my work!

Hello Doodlebug friends! 

I'm Wendy Sue and I am so so so excited to be included in the 2014 design team. I am a native Utahn and I just love living here, close to Doodlebug headquarters, where we enjoy beautiful snowy winters and gorgeous warm summers, with a few weeks of spring and autumn thrown in for good measure. I love scrapbooking photos of my four awesome kiddos and my super sweet husband - you'll be seeing lots of them in the near future! Besides scrapbooking, I love spending time in the outdoors with my family and when I can find the time, I love decorating our home, baking yummy cookies, and occasionally curling up with a good book. Doodlebug was my very first scrapbook "crush" and I just feel like I've hit the jackpot to be able to continue designing for them for another year! yay! :)

I've been creating projects with Doodlebug products from the very beginning of the company, so I have lots and lots of them in my albums...but here are a few of my more recent favorites:
