Introducing our new DT!! & Winners!

The Paper Variety is taking a short break from challenges so our designers and followers can enjoy the holidays with their families and friends. In the meantime, we have some exciting news to share! 
Our new design team and winners of our giveaways!

We have welcomed back six designers from the last term and 
we're overjoyed they all agreed to join us for another term! :)

April Walker
Lisa Wilkinson
Melissa LaFavers
Shannon Morgan
Tessa Buys
Yara Freytes

And we've added six new designers to the team! 
We're so excited to welcome these awesomely talented ladies:

Amy Kilgore
Jan Tatomir
Marilyn Rivera
Mindy Gallagher
Patti West
Suzy Nurmainy

Suzanne and I are thrilled to be crafting with these 12 designers for the next 4 months! 
They ALL inspire us as we're sure they'll inspire you, too!!

We'd also like to thank Sarah, Shawn, Tere and Angi for all they contributed to 
TPV during their time with us. We wish them all the best!!! :)

And we have some winners to announce! :)

Unfortunately, we fell quite a bit short from reaching our 500 follower goal so we won't be awarding a prize for that today. But the giveaway will remain open. Yay! When we reach 500, whether it's next week or next month, we'll have a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to The Scrapbooking Cottage! :) So invite your friends to follow The Paper Variety! The sooner we reach 500, the sooner someone's going to win some scrappy goodies! :)

From all the comments left on the giveaway post, Suzanne and I went blog surfing :) We found so many of our blinkies blinkin on your pages! Thank you so very much! The randomly chosen winner of a 6x6 Crate Paper "Snow Day" paper pad is...

Congrats Kim!!

Also, we'd like to thank all of you who helped us advertise our Design Team call! We were fortunate to meet so many designers from all over the world with your help! Thank you! Our randomly chosen winner of a Crate Paper "Snow Day" 12x12 collection kit is...
