This week, our Sweet Shoppe family was devastated to learn of the passing of our friend and colleague Eva Kipler. Eva joined our team as a designer in the spring of 2008, and words can’t express how much we will miss her. Please join us as we pay a tribute to this beautiful artist.
From Studio Flergs –
“I could not believe the news when I read it. I still can’t believe that Eva and I won’t be collabing again…ever.
Eva and I worked together a lot over the last few years. She was always a joy to work with, and a great friend I had found through digital scrapbooking too. We just clicked right away and I always felt at ease with her when we talked from the very first time we worked together. She told it like it was and was a great laugh, I loved her honesty and frankness, nothing fake about her. Sometimes we’d just email about a new filter or ask each other “how did you do that?” kind of stuff. I know we would have been great friends in real life too. Only last week I was thinking to myself that I should ask Eva if she wanted to start a Christmas collab again, something we’ve done the last 2 years in a row.
Eva will be greatly missed in this community by everyone. My thoughts are with her family & friends and also all of the girls at Sweet Shoppe and her creative team.”
From Kate Hadfield –
“Eva and I become friends after working together on a collab kit while we were both guesting at another store. We hit it off straight away, her often irreverent sense of humour and spirited emails would have me laughing out loud! I soon learned to make sure I was not drinking my morning cup of tea when I read them for fear of spraying my monitor as she made me snort with laughter once again!
The digital community has lost a wonderful designer and fabulous friend, my thoughts are with her family and friends along with her online family at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Rest in peace my friend, you will be greatly missed.”
To Ken and the rest of Eva’s family, I hope this memorial has given you a glimpse of how important Eva was to each of us here at Sweet Shoppe. Thank you for sharing her with us these past 4 years. You’ll continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
