Welcome newest designer - Anna Kossakovskaya

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you all had a very merry holiday season and are back refreshed for the new year! Our first post of 2016 is an exciting one and one that we've been bursting at the seams to share with you!

We are thrilled to announce that Anna Kossakovskaya is the newest addition to the ME family! This was one that could not be avoided. When Anna was knocking our socks off with every single one of our challenges, month after month and taking over our Instagram feeds with her jaw dropping creation, we knew she MUST come on board! And so we asked! And she said YES! You'll all start seeing Anna's work with ME starting with our January release!

Be prepared to be absolutely blown away by her masterpieces. Each one is even more stunning the next. She will really show you how to stretch your stamps in clever and imaginative ways. We are so excited!

In the meantime, she was so kind to make something to showcase her talents on today's announcement. Read more about her below and be sure to give her some love on her blog www.umichka.com!


Hello, I'm Anna and I'm so excited and honored to join the Mama Elephant design team! I live in Saint-Petersburg, Russia with my family. I discovered card-making and scrapbooking in 2011 before our baby arrived and since then it's an important part of my life. I like to create cards most of all other paper objects and especially cards with funny scenes full of details. 

And today I have two cards I created for you. The first one is about the love. We love our loved ones with all their ups and downs, no matter what happens. And this card is about this. I made a little scene about figure skating (oh I like to watch TV broadcastings!) The little penguin from Arctic Penguins set is skating on the ice and three judges from Three Amigos set judge him.




And the second card is pretty simple and one-layered, I used Three Amigos set again here and this card is made with masking technique. And one cat from the crowd tells you, that you are awesome.



Welcome to the ME family, Anna! It's gonna be a blast!!!

We'll see you back here soon for our January release! You're gonna love it!
