First of all: a special THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who applied! We were humbled beyond words to see so many talented people apply for our design team. Your creativity, beautiful projects, and sweet words about our company are all appreciated so much.
We know that along with the excitement for the new team there will be some disappointment too...and we hurt right along with you. If there was ANY way we could add everyone who applied to the team we would do it in a heartbeat! So please know we appreciate YOU. We love seeing your work, we know you put yourself out there, and we THANK for it. We will always consider ALL of you as part of our Prima family!
So: after spending hundreds of hours going through gorgeous design team applications, poring over blogs filled with beautiful projects, and repeating this process multiple times, we FINALLY have our new team narrowed down! Please help us give these gals the warmest welcome ever. (Click on their names for a wonderful creative journey around the world.)
When did you start scrapping? I started scrapbooking after the birth of my first son. I wanted to make him a baby book, and I have been addicted ever since. I have always been really creative, and I enjoy drawing & painting. Scrapbooking has been a great avenue for me to express my creative side.
When do you scrap? I scrap whenever I can find free time. I don’t really have a particular style, it really varies from project to project. I just love playing with different papers and trying new techniques. My projects always include stitching and lots of layering. My favorite color is Blue and my favorite Prima products are Color Blooms and obviously flowers!

Tell us your favorite thing about living in your country? I love the nature, and the fact that we have four seasons. Through my small country you can experience so many different kinds of nature. Most of all I love the sea and the forests.
What's your favorite color? My favourite colour is blue, even though a lot of my clothes are white or black. Blue comes in so many beautiful shades and reminds me of both the sea and the sky.
Tell us your favorite thing about living in your country (compared to other countries)? I love living in the United States for so many reasons, and especially my part of the U.S. My town is a little slower pace than most places. We have wonderful southern cuisine, beautiful scenery, and down home, genuine hospitality.
What is one food you cannot eat? I am an extremely picker eater... too many "will nots" to name. LOL!
What is one food you cannot eat? Cooked spinach. My mom forced it on us over and over again as kids. I never liked it then and will never touch it now (that I have a choice!)
What is your favorite movie? Oklahoma! I'm old-fashioned and I love my old musicals. My sister Kelly Foster and I used to watch it ALL the time. Act it out. Every song memorized. Still love it!
What is your favorite Prima product ever? This is a hard one! Probably the Junkyard Findings Small Typo Bulbs. Or the Romance Novel clear acrylic stamp.

What music do you listen to when you scrap? I actually listen to audio books when I scrap. It’s too difficult for me to sit and quiet myself to read so this is a great solution for me.
If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world where would you go? Wow – just one place, huh? Difficult to narrow the list, but I’d really love to go to Spain.
If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world where would you go? As for now I would want to go somewhere in the deep forest. I'm a little tired of the city for the last few weeks, so the only thing I'm dreaming about is a few weeks somewhere far away from the noise.
What is one food you cannot eat? I have to pick just one?! I am a super picky eater. I could never, ever, EVER - try sushi. NO way. Never! Haha!! The thought of it makes my stomach turn!!
What's your favorite movie? Eat, Pray, Love. Simply because it’s been the story of my life. Seriously.
