Exciting News

Hi All

We have exciting news here at Time Out!

We have a few new Design Team/Administrator members joining our team!
Not only will these fabulous crafters be Design Team members but will also be doing administrating work to help Time Out run smoothly!

First off we have 2 amazing designers who will be helping me-Sandie of London Days-on the administration side of the blog. I am sure you will know them but here they are to introduce themselves:

Check out here blog Cupcakes Cards and Kim

Kim here from Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim and I am so excited to be part of the Time Out team, what an honour. I am a retired preschool teacher that loves to sew and make cards.I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and a big baseball fan. My style is CAS with a twist and I can't wait to get started!

Check out her blog Creating with Paper

Hello! My name is Shauna and I am so excited to be a part of the Time Out team!  I work a full time job, but I love to be creative in my spare time and I enjoy sharing ideas with others. When making cards I enjoy using different patterns and textures and I tend to lean towards darker colors and tones. I look forward to working with this team and visiting your sites to see your creations!

And we also have a new Design Team/Administer who will be responsible for our Instagram account. (see icon top right to take you straight there and follow us so you don't miss out!).
She will feature all Design Team members cards, our winners and feature some entries each challenge!

And that Design Team member is:

Check out her blog Quillish

I am Ishani known as Quillish to the crafting world. I am so honoured to be a part of TO team. I live in Ambala, India. I am a Stay-at-home mum and a full time crafter after 10 years in the Indian Air Force. I love colouring, building scenes and I love to learn and experiment new techniques but I think I’m slightly bent towards CAS style of card making. Hope you'll like my cards

We are so excited that Kim, Shauna and Ishani are joining us from Thursday and do hope you pop on by to say hello to then all!

We are very sad to say that Jenny is leaving the team this week. As I am sure you know she is one busy crafter, a mum and holds down a full time job and needed to drop a few things. But we thank you Jenny for all your inspirations and hard work for Time Out. We will miss you and know we will see you in blogland......and hope that you join us and play along at Time Out!

So exciting news here and we wish you all a good day and hope you get some TIME OUT to craft!
