Deborah March has left our Design Team Design Team but I'm happy to tell you she has been a busy lady and has had 16 projects published now using our products! In fact the current (Fall) issue of Paper Creations contains three of her cards using Crafty Secrets Halloween images and papers and you can see more cards HERE on Deborah's Blog. I know you will all join me in wishing her more success!
Now I want to show you our new Photo Studio Clear Art Stamp Set that just arrived and we are giving one set away with a Summertime Image & Journal Notes Booklet and a sheet of our Travel Creative Scraps! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this blog post.
SL34 Photo Studio is a 6 x 8” large size Clear Art Stamp set with 24 separate stamps! It offers many creative possibilities for embellishing the fronts and backs of photos, scrapbook layouts, albums, journals, cards, stationary and an array of altered art projects. The antique lettering ‘Artist & Photographer is 2.5 x 1.5”, 'ALBUM' framed is 3.5” and the negative strip is 2.5”. Also includes: a Date Stamp; No. stamp, a Photo Log Label, words, quotes, 4 cameras, 2 decorative toppers, 3 corner styles, cute mouse and various bits to embellish with. The lettering on ‘From the Photographic Studio of’ is designed to have a name added which can be written or stamped over one of the decorative lines. Made in the USA from high quality photopolymer.
Lastly, I have a free printable gift for you. I was trying to pick an image when I came across this great Summertime drawing in a 1893 book of a lady in a hammock and I included the instructions in case you want to make your own. Jessica in our office recently bought a hammock and we also read a great article in the current issue of Mary Jane Farm Magazine (where I just started advertising) and all of us in the office fell in love with the hammock they have instructions for on pg 80 created from a vintage brocade drape panel. Their instruction are way easier than these ones I found and theirs looks so inviting!
Here is the image, which you can left click with your mouse and you may have to click it twice to get to the largest size and save it to a picture file. You can print it on cardstock in card size or larger to create a piece of wall art and it would be fun to color! I laughed at the comment on page 161 that says; 'Anyone can knit a hammock and it should cost no more than 50 cents' - Hah! Anyways, if you macrame one or create one from an old curtain be sure to send me a photo and I will post it. I would love to also see any creations made from this image!
I had to include this page as the writing conveys so perfectly wonderful it feels to spend a lazy summer afternoon relaxing- even in 1893! I didn't post all of these pages full size as they would take up massive space but they should get larger when you click then each on.
That's all until next time. Don't forget to go visit all the DT ladies blogs to see their creations and post a comment here to be entered to win our giveaway package. A random winner will be announced next Tuesday, Aug. 31/10
I hope you are having a wonderful summer!
