HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO WENDY WYMAN OF REPEAT IMPRESSIONS

Good Morning!  
TODAY IS WENDY WYMAN'S BIRTHDAY!!!! 
And you're invited to party with us.  


Here's a little trivia about this awesome designer of incredible rubber stamps.

When Wendy Wyman was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.

The next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and ran a printing company.

And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.

Wendy's husband, Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill. 

And so....in 1996, Wendy Wyman, and her husband Bill Welsh established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!

Today, the design team for Repeat Impressions, (aka the "Rock Stars"), have joined together with a special hop for Wendy's Birthday!

Instead of cards, we thought it would be fun to create some ATC's for her. The Rock Stars mailed their ATCs to me and I placed them in a mini-mini paperbag album I created for them. The album measures 4 X 4.5 with a 2 3/4 inch binding.  There are 8 "pages" and each page holds at least 2 ATCs.  I also created some "pockets" on the inside of the flaps for extra ATCs.  The papers I used are DCWV Mariposa Mat Stack. 

Wendy, you are one of the sweetest, and most generous people we know.  As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves on a team that is more professionally run,or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!  We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!  We look up to, admire and respect you.May your day today be filled with love and laughter!  And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!

Here is the ATC's album I created for Wendy's ATCs:






I created this ATC flip up for the front of the book with a message to Wendy from us all.




This is the awesome collection of all the ATCs by the Rock Stars which you can see individually and up close in each blog along the hop. 

Please hop along to see what incrediblly fabulous projects my fellow Rock Stars have created
for Wendy!
Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go over to the The House  and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!
