Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our 5th day of celebrations! Today you can enter to win DT Member Marisa Grosson’s $50.00 Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate and see the 2 gorgeous cards she created with our
NEW Birdies at Home stamp set which I will show you tomorrow. To enter, just leave a comment HERE on Marisa's blog and she will announce the winner tomorrow morning!

Marisa has been a valued member of our Design Team since late 2008 and has designed 100’s of wonderful samples! Today I’m going to share a few of my favorites but she has created so many fabulous cards I encourage you have a look HERE in Marisa's blog gallery! She does amazing work with scissors and loves to layer many of her designs. Look at the incredible ‘stair step accordion card’ she designed using our Birthday Kids stamp set!
I put it in a little wooden shadow box to protect it and cropped the photo so you can see the detail.

Marisa’s Bio
I was born and raised in the Philippines, were I lived for 26 years. I have four wonderful children. I currently work in banking as an analyst and in my spare time enjoy making cards and occasionally scrapbooking. I was introduced into scrapbooking about 5 years ago by my sister who lives in San Fransisco. I started off with just a few supplies and now I have a room to myself for all my stuff. I converted the extension of my laundry area to a haven for my scrapbooking and card making.
On this card, I adore the way Marisa stamped the 3 ladies from the Sew Special stamp set and colored them different. The dress form on this set looks so cute with matching colors and and the little 'belt' she added!

The colors Marisa used here with our Wine Lover Clear Art Stamps on her wine & cheese invitation are so perfect for that Tuscany feel and I love the way she cut out the the cheese, bottle and top of the glasses for the 3D effect.

Today for our free vintage printable gift, I have this wonderful daisy flower frame from an antique book! 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 for personal use only please.

Look at this adorable baby album DT member Melissa Phillips created using a kit from Emma's Paperie that includes our Baby Girl Stickers. You can get all the details and see the other pages HERE on Melissa's blog. Note- the album and other supplies are not our products but we will have our our chipboard album with a similar style back in stock next week.

We wanted to have another special for you today! We've lowered the price on all our Wood Clipboard Albums to $4.95 to clear out excess stock. Plus - from now until May 1/10 if you order a Wood Clipboard Album, you can choose either a free sheet of our Fairy Enchanting or our What's Cooking Heartwarming Vintage Cardstock Stickers! Just put your choice in the message box on the Shopatron store if you order.

Look at this beautiful fairy album DT leader Vicki Chrisman designed with the Wood Clipboard Album, Fairy Stickers and the cover paper is from our Pastel Paper Pad. The album has 2 faux vintage clips printed on cardstock, 2 binder rings and 2 wood covers that you can paint, stain or cover with paper.

Here is another project Vicki designed using just one of the wood pieces, our Cooking stickers and our Little Chef stamp set. To make the clip, she simply attached the rolling pin sticker to a wood clothes pin to hold recipe cards and used magnetic tape on the back so it could also be used as a clipboard on a fridge. Vicki has a bunch of her favorite samples she has created for us HERE on her blog right now!

Okay, now I want to show you how fabulous the back side of our Domestic Goddess Creative Scraps tuned out that we had re-printed! These have been one of our top selling products and now they are even cooler and the sug. retail price of $3.50 won't change!

There is one tiny problem - we just found 4 cases of the original ones that we have to sell before we release these new ones, so they will only be available in our Shopatron Store HERE until Monday morning, May 3/10. The new double sided ones will debut at CHA in July for stores to order. But I just had to offer them during this celebration as I've been hyping them up to you all week!

These sheets are scored in the center and fold out 18" long. You can see one of the back side pages here below.

Here is the other back page and I just LOVE the way these turned out and think our graphic designer Cindy van Koll did and amazing job! We are madly at work now creating back pages for all the rest of our Creative Scraps and they will debut at the CHA Show in July as well.

Okay, that's it until tomorrow - when we have our Design Team Photo Challenge and 5 of our DT ladies will announce the winners from their giveaways so if you haven't entered yet, time is running out! Then, 5 more DT ladies will start their $50.00 giveaways tomorrow for a Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate and show off their creations!
