Spread the Joy, by Emily M. from the Stampin’ Up! home office, is the first winning stamp set from In With You, our new stamp set design challenge beta program.
In April, Stampin’ Up! employees were given the challenge to create a “bucket list” stamp set. Emily “wanted to make a set that could be versatile and usable for lots of different things.” Employees fell in love with her design and voted the set to victory!
From Emily (winner):
When I was twelve, a demonstrator gave me my very first catalog. I remember studying every page and staying up late making wish lists and doodling coordinating images. I dreamed of designing stamp sets someday.
Years went by and I forgot about that dream. I moved to college and traveled. My stamps stayed home and collected dust under my bed. Slowly, Stampin’ Up! found its way back into my life, and on a whim I applied for a job as a writer. The stars aligned and I got the job! I thought I would die of happiness. I got to see the illustrators at work, and I remembered my love for stamps.
As a writer and now a trainer, I don’t doodle as much as I thought I would. When the stamp contest was announced, I knew I had to be true to myself and enter. The theme—Bucket List—was tricky! Although I do want to go skydiving and visit all 50 states, a big part of my bucket list is becoming what I want to be—so my set is a reminder. “Spread the Joy” reminds me to let loose and enjoy life; to leave love notes for my husband and kids; to be brave when life is stormy; and to do the things that really matter! I’m particularly proud of the jam and bread—100 percent my husband’s idea.
Creating my own stamp set was definitely part of my bucket list!
