After joining Hallmark in 2012, Keepsake Artist Matt Johnson quickly learned just how much Keepsake Ornaments capture and share memories at Christmas. “You can see that in how people interact with an ornament and use it in their celebrations,” Matt says. “I appreciate that each Keepsake Ornament has artistry and the ability to mean different things to different people based on the experiences they bring to it.”
Terri Steiger takes her time gathering ideas and inspiration. It’s her favorite part of creating Keepsake Ornaments. She loves diving deep into the Hallmark Archives–a treasure trove of vintage cards, design patterns, and gift products from Hallmark’s rich history. The inspiration she finds can influence a design, a story, or sometimes an entire concept. No matter the source, Terri’s ultimate goal is to make sure the meaning behind an ornament always shines through.
