Today is a bittersweet day here in the Clique Kits locker room! Today marks the end of the 2017 Spring-Summer Design Team term and we have had to say farewell to some lovely, talented, kind, amazing people we have enjoyed being inspired by this term. We wish Audrey, Evi, Nathalie, Enza, Candace, Stephanie, Melissa, and Sheryl the best in their future adventures. Even sadder still, we say goodbye for now to a close friend, dedicated team member and friend-our brilliant Design Team Leader Nicole Martel. I want to thank each and every one of these designers for the hard work they put in. I hope it was as fun for them as it was for us. We will miss them! Because she is so special to us we put together a little tribute for Nicole Martel.
Here is an important announcement!
In just a short while we'll be saying hello to a brand new baby Thompson! We are very excited for Erica and her family soon to be Plus One! When this miraculous event takes place we will be closing the warehouse for a short time. Don't worry, we will use this opportunity to continue taking orders with a HUGE sale event and shipping will resume before you can blink. Complete details will be shared as soon as Erica begins her maternity leave for baby #6.
And now its time to say... bring on the new season and welcome this lean and mean 2017-18 Varsity Team for the next six months! We introduced this team on September 8th with a fun blog hop! In case you missed it, learn more about the team here.
We are so blessed to have worked with an incredible graphic designer and illustrator Inna Moreva! With great pride we have watched her "get discovered" and we are proudly supporting her as she goes on in her career! Inna designed these adorable stamps for our friends at Pinkfresh studio. You can pick up this really cute stamp in the Clique Kits shop right now! We hope that we will be able to bring more of Inna's work to the Clique whenever she can fit us in!
Congratulations to Maryam Perez!
In other news our precious Maryam who started as the first ever (that I know of ) design team member who made the team at the tender age of 14 has been commissioned for her very own collection with Pretty Little Studios. Maryam will continue to be an integral part of the Clique this term and is the youngest member ever of the Clique Creative Team ! We are so excited to bring you Maryam's beautiful original illustrations and more this term.
Join us in the Clique Facebook group on Saturday October 7th for another one of our online events. These "virtual" crops are a blast. We have a new challenge each hour and prizes prizes prizes! We know that nobody wants to talk about Christmas before Halloween but lets face it...what better way to celebrate our craft and knock out some priceless holiday cards all in one day! Our inspiration will come from the contents of this year's holiday kit Clique Cards Holiday Edition '17. It features the newest Simple Stories collection. Both of our value-packed holiday kits are available to pre-order now. The reason we call these #Limited Edition is because they are truly unique and #flyofftheshelves. Get yours now!
And thats the play by play in the Clique locker room today! Stay tuned for loads of inspiration right here on the blog!
