Design Team Wednesday- Ivy

Today was Ivy's scheduled day for Design Team Wednesday but unfortunately Ivy has recently made the decision to spend more time being an awesome mom to her two adorable sons. It is with sadness that we say so long to our sweet and creative Ivy, we will miss her on the team but we fully support her decision. So for today's post we would like to share some of our favorite Ivy moments and her awesome creativity with you.

Here's a favorite pic of Ivy and Tiffany at the first class they attended at Stamp Fever 2 years ago.

Here she is meeting Tim Holtz at Winter CHA 2012

Ivy's been published in Create: Stamping magazine!

And now on to some of our favorite Ivy cards...

This is an amazing gift card box made from an up-cycled Altoids tin!

And a favorite scrapbook page...
