CHA NEW Stamps Sets and More!

I know everyone is waiting to see what NEW and wonderful stamp sets will debut at the CHA Show later this week, so I’m posting 3 sets today that are already in production and almost ready to ship to stores! I’m so delighted with the way these two large sets turned out and how different and FUN they both are!

Birthday Kids has 22 separate stamps – plus a full set of numbers! This set is so CUTE and versatile with adorable boys and girls from the side and front views, which are designed to hold the ice cream cone, party horns, balloon(s) or present.

Theres more...
They can also blow out the candles on the cake. You can add as many candles as needed. Stamp numbers in balloon. Create invitations, birthdays cards, scrapbook pages and keepsakes galore! I thought of this set as a 'kids only' but after a few ladies said they would stamp the little girls for a girlfriend card... I changed my mind! We even squezzed in the 'pin the tail on the donkey' boy!

SL Glamour Girls has 21 separate art deco inspired stamp designs in large to small inchie size. This stamp set has both designs begging to be colored and also perfect for the ‘bold black ink on pink’ glamour girl style that’s so popular! The words and sentiments are a mix of warm and funny greetings that will have your girlfriends smiling.

Dress up cards, tags, gift packaging, albums and more. I want to stamp a pink journal and add rhinestones to the center of the flowers!

My husband gets credit for the last sentiment in the bottom right corner. We decided to include it because you can always snip it off it as well as the others if you don’t want to always use them.
In case you missed seeing our new our SM19 Support the Girls Stamp set, it will be a medium set and it has 18 separate stamps with a real retro ‘uplifting’ style. We designed this set to also help raise funds for the Susan Koman foundation for breast cancer research. I’m donating $1.00 from every set we order and also donating sets to stores that sell our products and are hosting a ‘pink fundraising crop’.

I adore this card Lisa Zappa from our design team created with this set! Lisa got one of the demo proof sets to play with because she is a breast cancer survivor and an inspiration and hope to so many other women! She was diagnosed in her twenties and is still actively involved in fundraising.

You can see the other cards and check out her supply and tip list here on her blog – Plus - Lisa has posted some free vintage sheet music you can download!

We have some other new stamp sets in the works but they are still under wraps. I have to tell you our new Halloween stamp set was just finalized today and it’s Spooktacular! It’s full of little monsters, spiders, a witch and more – but ADORABLE is the best way to describe it! I will post the Halloween and other new sets after I get back home.

If you are a retailer and you are qualified to purchase at a wholesale level – please use this coupon! If you are a consumer, you can always print this coupon and pass it on to your favorite retailer. Many stores can’t attend the CHA Show due to time and budget but we always extend our Show Special Coupon to every retailer and this Show Special which starts RIGHT NOW and LASTS until July 22, 2008. First come – first serve. Our retailers will also get this in their newsletter today, but I thought some people may want to pass it on to their fav store that may not be able to make it to the show.

Here is a cute card that Vicki Chrisman from our design team whipped up with an image from our NEW Halloween Image & Journal Notes Booklet!

The 4 NEW Booklets turned out FABULOUS and are available for stores to order NOW! They will be available through our Shopatron store after the CHA Show.

The FOUR NEW TITLES are Halloween, Christmas, Little Dolls and Girlfriends! You can see samples if you scroll down further on this blog.

Our talented design team will be starting to post samples in our Online Gallery over the next few weeks and you can check it anytime to see new projects added here!

I just wanted to thank everyone for all their kind words and get well wishes for my DAD! He was on way too many pills, so they are adjusted and his heart rate is stable again, so he got discharged from the hospital yesterday. We had a big party here tonight for my mom’s 75th birthday and I know having her honey back home was the gift she wanted most! I love this photo I took of him on Fathers Day!

Cindy, our head graphic artist, may post something while I’m away if she has time (she is responsible for putting together
every wonderful product we offer) so you may have to wait until I get back. I know you will LOVE what I have to show you in new samples and cool ideas!
