Winner of Our Giveaway, New Samples, Challenge, New Giveaway & Download Links!

Hi Everyone,

We have a random winner for the prize package Giveaway for  our Photo Studio Clear Art Stamp set, Summertime Booklet and Travel Creative Scraps. There were 139 entries and ccongratulations to # 2, Lacey from North Dakota who said: "Welcome Mary and best wishes to Deborah! What a fantastic giveaway.  I ADORE that stamp set and it is on my list of stamps I need. THe list is long. Thanks! Fantastic creations by your DT".

I have a bunch of fantastic samples to show you today including this very cute shabby card that DT member Pam Hooten created using an image from our new double sided Girlfriend Creative Scraps and Pam used our Artsy Banner Stamp Set to create the scallop border across the top of her card. You can see more photos and get the details HERE on Pam's Blog.

Everyone seems to be in love with this set. Look at this cute birthday layout below that DT member Linda Duke created using Artsy Banners with our ABC Top Hat Alphabet set and SpellBinders products. You can get all the details and see more photos HERE on Linda's Blog 

Or check out this adorable Birthday card DT member Julie Campbell created for her daughter Annie using Artsy Banners HERE on Julie's Blog.  Plus, if you missed the inspiring Video that DT member Vicki Chrisman made you can watch her Artsy Banner Creative Ideas Video HERE!

I love all the details on this charming 'Farewell to Summer' card DT Member Michele Kovack created using our new Bathing Beauty  Stamp set. The way she used multiple layers and stitched around her kraft paper card all add to the natural but classy style!  You can get all the details HERE on Michele's Blog.

Look at this adorable little birthday calender album DT member Melissa Phillips created using a mix of our images like the grouchy fairy from our Altered Fairy Scraps.  January has the little snow kids from our Christmas Booklet, on May she used an image from our Calendar Scraps and another fairy on her  June page. The combination of pastel colors, glitter, ink, ribbon and chipboard from Tattered Angels make it such a pretty keepsake!  You can see more photos HERE on Melissa's Blog

I also spotted a bunch of awesome cards HERE on Cherry Nelson's Blog using a combination of our Sew Nice Creative Scraps with our Sew Special and Material Girl Clear Art Stamp Sets. This card below shows one of the images she used with the 'Hem Your Blessings With Thanks' stamp from our Sew Special set.

There is a new Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers that Jan Hennings is hosting to use any of our products to create a Fall theme project. Look at this cute Halloween card Jan created and you can get the challenge details HERE and see the Gallery HERE of other samples people have started submitting.

I missed posting the challenge that Marcy Talbert hosted last week at Splitcoast to use any of our stickers on a project but look at this cute card Marcy made using our School Time Stickers that would be perfect to welcome a new teacher. You can see the other great samples in the Gallery HERE and we have so many stickers they take up 4 pages HERE.

I also wanted to show you this wonderful Christmas card that Beate Johns created using one of the sentiments from our ever popular Vintage Christmas Clear Art Stamp Set.  You can get all the details HERE on Beate's Blog and check out the adorable card she made HERE with our Fairyland stamp set.

Lastly, I wanted to share some links to some of the free downloads we have on our website. I was away Friday and Monday, so I had Cindy send out our big newsletter which now goes to over 12,000 subscribers and she added a link  (which stopped working) to the free Hammock image I posted HERE on my last blog post. You can get the big image right from the blog or go HERE to our website and download it and other free images.  I'm sorry, our website is so old but we are getting our NEW WEBSITE next month, so you have to scroll down the far left side and you can click on the Hammock as well as the Pink Rose Card DT member Julie Campbell used below on this Mother layout or the Mother Poem. You can read Julie's touching blog post HERE about her Grandmother and the memory box she left her.

 We have been busy shipping lots of new orders to stores so if you see any of our items you like please ask your favorite retailer or check our Store Locator.

We have also been working on new products and will have a new small stamp set called Christmas Mail available next month as well as new Double sided Altered Fairy Scraps, plus 2 NEW Creative Scraps on press today called Little Blessings and Vintage Photos and all I can say is THEY ALL TURNED OUT FANTASTIC and I can hardly wait to show you!

Wishing you all joy & creativity!

Sandy Redburn
