If you follow me on Instagram (@laurarahel) you probably knew that last week I decided to do something major in the new year. I put out an open call for my first ever Design Team for Laurel Lane Designs. The response was overwhelming and I feel so grateful to have so many wonderful ladies who want to work with my products and represent my brand. My heart is so full.
I am thrilled to announce the 2015 Laurel Lane Designs Design Team. Give a big hello to each of the gorgeous ladies below!
Amy Bish- "I'm a twenty-something student teacher who lives just outside London with my fiancé and my fur-baby, Baxter. I love memory keeping and creating pretty things!"
Juli Maniago- "I'm Juli. I'm a 20-something soon to be nursing graduate. As my time in college flew by, I thought, if I'm not going to document these years of my life, who will? Which is why I've done Project Life for the past year. I want something to look back on and proof to my future children that I was actually kind of cool at some point. I'm from a tiny town in New Jersey. When I'm not making things with paper, I'm probably watching an excessive amount of Netflix or listening to music."
Lauren Hooper- "I am a picture taker, street food eater and maker of things who has been transplanted from the deep south of the USA to the heart of Korea. My husband and I spend our time riding scooters, going on adventures and laughing at ourselves. I use Project Life to document our life and I share those spreads, among other DIYs and travel tips on instagram and my blog."
Melissa Marie- "I'm 17 years old and live in New York with my family. I have been homeschooled since I was little and am now finishing up my senior year of highschool. My dream came true in December, when I got a letter of acceptance from the college of my choice, to study Graphic Design in the fall. I love Jesus, my family, making mini albums, knitting, rooting for the New York Giants, and wishing I lived in the 20's."
Pallavi Malur- "I'm Pallavi, a Louisiana native who's currently living in Ohio with my sweet husband and my adorable two month old daughter. I am an elementary teacher but currently a SAHM. I adore all things crafty, especially project life, which has turned me into a fanatic memory keeper. I also love taking pictures and collecting designer stamps. In my free time, I enjoy traveling all over the world and spending time with my family and friends."
Steffie van den Akker- "I'm Steffie, 27, from Maastricht in the Netherlands, where I live with my boyfriend of 9 years and our 2 little boys Julius and Oscar. I have a big love for photography and memory keeping, pretty paper, reading and chocolate!"
Stephanie Algra- "Hello! I'm Stephanie and I am crazy passionate about anything creative. Which can be hard as well, because I never seem to know which of the dozen projects I should do first. I mostly work on Project Life, journaling or snail mail and I love it. I am fairly new to Project Life, so I am super honored to be a part of the Design Team of Laura. I can’t wait to dig into all the pretty designs and use them. Lots of love, Stephanie."
And there you have it! My gorgeous, talent-filled, 2015 Laurel Lane Designs Design Team. I am so excited to have each and every one of these creative ladies on my team this year and I can't wait to see what wonderful things they each do with my designs. 2015 is going to be a huge year for Laurel Lane Designs! There are so many wonderful, new things that will be coming to my shop this year and I'm grateful to be sharing my journey with these women and with all of you.
