Congratulations to the new Design Team!

Incredibly obvious understatements:

  • The Grand Canyon is a big hole in the ground.
  • The Taj Mahal is a nice building.
  • The Mona Lisa is a pretty painting.
  • Peach cobbler served warm with ice cream has a lot of calories and makes me feel better when I am busy and stressed out. (Yum!)
  • Picking the first ever Zutter Zisters/Bind-it-All Design Team was a near impossible – though exhilarating - task!

But we did it!


Congratulations to the awesome international team of designers who make up our first ever Design Team. Over the next several weeks you will meet each of them and enjoy their incredible work. The best moment during this process (besides getting to see all your submissions) was reviewing the finalists with the boss and when we were trying to narrow it down, he said, "they are so good - let's choose them all!" That is why we have a team of 10 instead of 6 we originally were targeting. Isn’t that cool?


So check out these samples from the selected submissions and say CONGRATULATIONS to:


Annette West – Saudi Arabia

Claire Labigne – France

Emeline Seet – Singapore

Jennifer Priest – California, USA

Jenny Svensson – Sweden

Julie Ann Kelley – Massachusetts, USA

Lea Millora Sanders – Virginia, USA

Sally Lynn McDonald – Connecticut, USA

Tish Treadaway – North Carolina, USA

Vicki Flinchum – Texas, USA

These talented ladies not only represent Bind-it-All fans from around the world, but also have a range of talents. We have traditional scrappers, mini-book lovers, stampers, distressers, published pros and first-time design teamers – not to mention some real out-of-the-box artists! We are sooooo excited to be making this announcement – and hope you will be staying tuned to see what they all have in store for us!


If you submitted for our design team, and your name isn’t on the list….thank you for your submissions. Truly, we could’ve selected so many – if not all – of you for the amazing work and heart you put into your projects. We hope you will keep coming back and keep bindin’ with us! Thank you so much!
