Creative Team Updates
Today we're popping in with an update on the status of our Creative Team! We are thrilled and honored to have many artists who will continue to share their talent with us. We also have one fabulous new addition, and one sad goodbye.
Did you spot the new face on the team? That's right, we are so excited to have Kelly Taylor joining the Hero Arts family! Kelly has been our guest several times during release blog hops, and has been patiently waiting for us to make the partnership "official". Kelly's skills with a marker are top notch, and we cannot wait to learn tips and tricks from her in the coming months.
Let's learn a little more about Kelly:
First, I am so honored to be joining this team! I have been a fan of Hero Arts since my stamping journey started 14 years ago. I am a full time crafter who spends most of her time creating, editing, producing craft videos, and a part-time Police/Fire/Ems dispatcher. I chose to leave the field after 17 years full time to have more time to be with my family. Speaking of, I am married to wonderful man named Eric and we have a crazy 9 year old never ending bundle of energy and a sweet little 8 month old daughter who refuses to sleep but makes up for it cute baby giggles. They have two furry sisters our dog Molly who is a boxer/mastiff mix and Emma who is a boxer/bulldog mix. Between the four of them my house is never clean! ha! My style of card making is pretty Clean and Simple. I sometimes venture into the Clean and Layered but even then my design isn't very busy. I do love a good one layer card, especially if it's a scene! I'm a big fan of encouraging and supporting each other as crafters because honestly kindness is free and it never hurt anybody. 🙂
Now for that sad goodbye. Our beloved Debi Adams is stepping down from the team to focus on her sweet, growing family and other creative interests. Debi is one of the kindest people we've worked with, and her talent is incredible. Month after month she has provided inspiration, and blown us away by showing ideas for our products that we didn't even think of. To say we will miss her is an understatement, but we are so fortunate to have had her with us on the team for as long as we did, and wish her so much happiness!

In addition to this main Creative Team who create content for our blog and social media as well as the cards for our printed catalogs, we also work with the amazing artists on our Global Team and the Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero Team! We have some of the best designers on the planet, who never cease to amaze us with their creations!
Be sure to leave our artists some love!
