The Ultimate Trendsetter - Jessica Knutsen!

Hey everyone! Each Tuesday I have the privilege of introducing you to the Design Team member that is sharing their art, tips and trends during the week.  This week, I thought I'd introduce the ulitimate trendsetter Jessica Knutsen, owner of There She Goes Clear Stamps!  Grab a drink and a tissue, because the design team has a surprise for Jessica today!
Last week, Jessica shared this gorgeous card!  
 I fell in love with the design, simplicity and complication all at once. It is a beautiful way to use the newly released Buckets of Love stamp set.  To show our fearless leader how much we care about her, we decided to fill HER bucket with a bunch of love!
Holly: From the moment you told me you were going to start your own company and I said "sign me up" for your team, I've loved every moment.   I cannot fathom how a young mom with three growing giggles, I mean girls, can be so organized and together.   You're like the daughter I never had and I just adore you.   There She Goes was your vision, but you've unselfishly let your Trendsetters join in along the way.   That's the action of a winner.   I still contend that you will never get rid of me until you pry my TSG stamps from my cold dead hands :).  Love you!! 

Sandra: It's been such a pleasure to get to know Jess over the past year or so. Not only is she the owner of a F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. stamp company, but she's a beautiful person, both inside and out. Jess puts everything into the stamp sets she releases each month and I feel so very blessed to be a part of this company and work for her. As a boss and a friend...she ROCKS!!

Jodi: "I am SO thrilled that Jessica is in the spotlight today!  She is truly our fearless leader and I think she is SUCH an amazing stamper.  Whenever I see her creations, I always say to myself "Why didn't I think of that?".  I am so grateful that Jessica has had me along for this amazing TSG ride!  Not only are the stamps OUT of this world amazing, I have been blessed with Jessica's friendship too!"

Jessie: Jessica is not only one of the best bosses I've ever had, but a truly good person and amazing friend. She's always there when I need her, and I couldn't love her more!!

Kim: Jessica is not only a super woman who can craft up a whirlwind, run a flourishing business and be an amazing mother... she is a friend to everyone on who has the privilege to be on her design team. We love you Chica! :D 

Torico: “It means a lot to me to work with you, Jessica! I’m always thankful for your hard work. You are such an AMAZING girl!”

Angela: Jessica knows how to rock the stamp world with her cute and sassy stamps!! Jessica is an amazing person in so many ways... how to list them all? I had the pleasure of hanging out with Jessica for a weekend a few months ago and the stamps definitely match the lady behind TSG! Funny,  charming, sassy!!!  Long live margaritas and poutine.... EH!!!

Piali: Jessica is not only very talented but one of the sweetest people out there! I love her clean and fun design style!! Her creations are always perfectly embellished, with clean layers and look professionally done and flawless! I'm blessed that I have an opportunity to work with her . I love Jessica and There She Goes stamps! Thanks Jessica for making me a part of TSG family!

Corinna: Jessica, I am so blessed to have been chosen to be a member of this beautiful and talented family of TSG women! You are an inspiration, not just in your ability to design amazing creations and commandeer a fabulous stamp company with compassion and generosity.  You are an amazing mother and wife, with an amazing family that exudes love and a genuine spirit of creativity and hospitality.  Thank you so much for including me and sharing all of your goodness!

From all of your DT members, past and present, and all of your customers, we wish you a wonderful 2011 filled with Buckets of Love, Friendship and Prosperity!


  1. Sounds like a chorus of "for she's a jolly good fellow" should be playing in the background. Jessie, I've never had the honor or privlege to meet you in person, but I love what you do! Your stamps are some of my most treasured. Thanks for being so creative. All the best in 2011.

  2. Jess, I was feeling completely off in the last couple of days... frankly speaking, I still do, so as much as I was trying to come up with something witty to say, I couldn't. Please know, that I love you as a friend, a boss, and all round an amazing woman! It's been an ultimate pleasure to 'meet' you! Working on this AMAZING Team has been the biggest highlight of my paper craft adventure, and when it comes to an end, I shall cry buckets. LOL
    You are extraordinary! {HUGS}

  12. I just happened upon this and wanted to add a special thanks from me to Jessica. Your design team was my first real DT experience and was the impetus to the birth of my blog. It was a true delight to create with this fabulous team and it is something I will always be thankful for. And, as many of the others have said, you have such class in the way that you deal with people, whether DT members or customers. Besides your creativity, you also have a BIG heart.


  13. You do rock and are loved by all who come across your path! I mean, we haven't actually 'met' but I consider you a true friend! You totally deserve every word the gals said! YOU ARE WICKED!
