Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our 4th day of celebrations! Today you can enter to win DT Member Julie Campbell’s $50.00 Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate HERE on her blog and check out her new gorgeous photo projects!


Julie Campbell joined our Design Team about 3 months ago but she had been using our products much longer. In fact I use to joke that she was our #1 customer and I’m so happy she joined our team! She adores all things vintage with a special fondness for shabby & retro kitchen/cooking styles like this cute card she created using our Domestic Goddess Scraps.


Julie’s Bio
I'm a SAHM--kinda. I've been married for 21 years to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. I have three beautiful, very loving daughters and we live in central California near the coast. I work during the spring and fall as a park naturalist teaching children about the local plants and animals. I'm inspired by all things vintage and love stamping, cardmaking, reading, British period movies and family history.

It was hard for me to pick favorites but I have a couple more to share. On this card love the way Julie created a layered 3D tole style by stamping one of the art deco style cottages from our Home Sweet Home Stamps multiple times and using water color crayons to color with.

She created this adorable little altered fairy girl card using one of the girls from our Little Dolls Image & Journal Notes Booklets and used some of the swirly stamps from our Cherubs stamp set to stamp a background. The sheet music paper is from our Radiant Paper Pad.

Today, our free Vintage Printable Gift for you is this old etching from a 1890's book I have and I thought with Mothers day coming it would be a great addition to our vintage printables. Just left click on the image and you may have to do it a twice to get it as big as possible and then right click it with your mouse to save it to a picture file.


I'm also posting this wonderful poem we have from last Mothers Day in case you missed it. Just follow the instructions listed above to save it for personal use only please. * Note: I'm back because it won't get larger, so you can get it HERE on our website, you just need to scroll down the bar on the left side to find it.


Here is a pretty Mothers Day card Marlene Bender created last year with the poem above, so you can see how great it will work as an outside or inside sentiment or on a scrapbook page! We have plans to create a special stamp set just for mothers in the future.


When I was searching through my files I came across this lovely frame that DT leader Vicki Chrisman created a few years ago of her mother using alphabet letters from our Divine Alphabet Book. We are discontinuing our alphabet booklets and they are all on sale for $1.95 HERE. I just found out that we have limited quantities of Divine Booklets left but their are still several of the others sale.

I also want to show you this adorable 3D Shadow Box baby announcement DT leader Vicki Chrisman created using the Portrait Die she designed for Accucut and that we sell in kits HERE. You have to click HERE to see the inside on Vicki's blog and how cute and easy these would be for special family & friends.
I have a list of stores that have the dies but I haven't be able to get it to load properly on the blog so I will get it added to our website. Many stores that carry Accucut dies will let you use them as long as you buy the paper from them.


I also have a third pretty mermaid card that DT member Marisa Grosson just finished using our Mermaid Stamps. I love this technique she used to stamp all the shells from the set on vellum, color them, cut them out and emboss them! You can get the step by step details HERE on Marisa's blog.



I want to show you how cool the back side our Calender Creative Scraps turned out! You can see both sides below and then the back sides of them under this picture.


Our Creative Scraps are 18" long when folded out and the little calendars pages work for all of 2010 or all of 2012. Many people told us they often used the little calenders and images on cards so we decided to include larger images on the back side to make them even more versatile. I think our graphic designer Cindy van Koll did an amazing job designing the backs of all 3 of our Creative Scraps.

This is the other calendar back side- pg 2


Here is a pretty little calendar booklet DT member Melissa Phillips designed using some of our original Calender Scraps with a mix of other supplies and you can see more pages and get the details HERE on Melissa's blog. The new double printed Calender Scraps will and Sew Nice Creative Scraps will start shipping tomorrow!

I will be back tomorrow with a link to DT Member Marisa Grosson's $50.00 giveaway and she is creating a card with our brand NEW Birdies at Home Clear Art Stamp set and I will show this fabulous new set tomorrow!
