Welcome our newest Design Team Members!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  We have a special announcement today as will be introducing our newest Design Team members.

I want to personally thank all of the wonderfully talented artists who applied.  I received more applications than I could ever dream of and it was a very hard decision.  I had originally only planned on picking 2 additional Design Team members, but because of the breadth of talent, I eventually decided on 4.  

I hope you share in my excitement as I announce the following new designers to the Frog Dog Studio family.  These beautiful ladies will start creating with the March kit, so I am super excited and can’t wait to see their amazing inspiration and creativity!

First up is Sanna Lippert.  Sanna joined Frog Dog Studio last October and November as a Guest Designer.  We fell in love with her wonderful projects back then, so we are over the top excited she is joining the team.  Here’s a bit about Sanna.

Hi! My name is Sanna Lippert and I live close to Vienna in Austria. I have been a paper lover since I was a very little girl. I used to draw and do crafting for hours and hours. All my drawers were full of "creations". After my son´s were born I discovered scrapbooking and I have been addicted ever since. I mainly create layouts in different sizes as well as cards and minibooks. One of my recent passions is mixed media. When I´m not scrapbooking, I´m either working at my day job or weaving rugs, socks or doing something else creative. I cannot image life without doing handicrafts. In crafting my constant companions are a black pen, small embellishments, stamps, all kinds of media and mists. No particular style I like most, I usually create based on how I´m feeling. I love this hobby and love trying out new products and techniques. I love to create, experiment and share my projects and ideas. I am very excited to be a part of Frog Dog Studio with these very talented ladies! Thanks for having me!

Next up, we would like to welcome Smitha Katti!  I have personally followed Smitha’s work through the past couple of years and I love her fresh and colorful designs.  

Let’s get to know a bit more about Smitha.

Hello everyone! I am Smitha Katti.
I am a complete craft addict and love all kinds of mediums: be it paper, digital or hybrid and am always in the middle of some project. All my life I have been drawn to crafts of all kinds- paper crafts, photography, knitting, crocheting, sewing, painting, sketching or sculpting. I'm so excited to be part of this mixed media kit club!
Color is in every aspect of my life…  And this color translates into art. I find inspiration everywhere and am constantly doodling and jotting down thoughts onto whatever scrap paper is available at hand. I have a long list of ideas in my head, and am constantly making something in my art room… More ideas than time!
I currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota with my husband and two daughters.

Next up is Heather Kindt.  I first came across this incredible talent when I became obsessed with Splash of Color product.  Heather is a diverse talent and we are looking forward to what she creates each month.

Let’s get to know Heather a bit more.

I live in Iowa with my husband and son. I was not friends with art until after my son was born 7 years ago. Before that I just thought I wasn't creative. When I started taking online classes on art journaling, I found my passion. I quickly jumped around a variety of media and discovered I like them all! I can't wait to put my twist on Frog Dog Studio's kits!

Last, but not least!  We are SO excited to welcome Wendy Morris.  I have always been a fan of Wendy’s scrappy projects, but her mixed media designs are FABBO!  

Let’s get to know Wendy a bit more.

I'm Wendy Morris.  Living on the Gulf coast in Daphne, Alabama. Carefree. World traveler. Fearless. Confident. Positive. Full of random adventure. Pianist. Audit manager (but just because I’m an auditor does not mean I am is not a creative soul). Unique yet original. Art runs thick in my blood....everyone in my family can draw. Strong love for photography, fashion, and music and I really focus on this rainbow of inspiration in my creative mojo. I’m always inspired by things around me and make time each day for in the motto to “find inspiration everyday everywhere”.  It’s funny that when I’m not creating I’m usually jotting down ideas for creations later once back in my art room.
