2017 We R Memory Keepers Design Team!

It’s a new year friends, and that means we’ve selected a new team of designers to bring you the very best crafting inspiration during the coming year! This year we’ve chosen eight talented paper crafters whose expertise include cardmaking, scrapbooking, planner pages, mixed media, paper crafts, party decor, home decor, staging, photography, and more. We know you’re going to love what they share with us this year, so without further ado, meet the 2017 We R Memory Keepers Design Team!
