WOW - New Releases, a Giveaway, Great Samples and News!

Have you heard the news?  Our new Creative Scraps arrived!


Yippee – our new Creative Scraps and Christmas Mail Stamp set have arrived!  They have started shipping to stores so you can ask your favorite retailer to order any new products in. To celebrate we are doing a giveaway for 2 sheets of each of the new Creative Scraps and for our new stamp set, plus 3 Shadow Box 3D Frames because they go so great with our new double sided Fairy Scraps! Just leave a comment here on this blog post to be entered to win.  A random winner will be announced next Monday, Sept 20/10 when we have our DT Challenge.  I also have a lot of great samples to share today!

I hope the picture below gets larger when you click your mouse on it so you can see how fun our Vintage Photo Scraps turned out. You can also see them HERE in our online store and a full description. The photo of the baby with glasses above is from a card DT member Julie Campbell made HERE.  Julie also created a great 'mom card' with fantastic post about 'Things My Mother Taught Me'   HERE on her blog if you missed it.

Look at these adorable hanging frames DT leader Vicki Chrisman emailed me tonight she made using our Vintage Photo Scraps and Fancy Pants Metal Frames!  I'm going to include my last package of these frames with the giveaway!  I'm waiting for an order of them to come as they work so well with our Creative Scraps and each frame includes a little paper template so it's quick & easy to cut out images to fit.



Here are our new Little Blessing Creative Scraps and I'm thrilled with how pretty the colors turned out and what a fabulous job Cindy our graphic designer did on these new sets!  If they don't get bigger when you click on the picture with your mouse  you can also see them HERE in our Shopatron online store and a full description. The little journal cards on the back of the front sheet turned out so sweet!

Here is a pretty card that Beate Johns from Splitcoast created with an image from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps.  It was her first time using the Scraps and she said she is in love with them.  The images are all printed on a mat cardstock, so they work perfect for double sided gift tags. Just punch a hole and add some pretty ribbon and a little charm or beads.
These are the new double sided Altered Fairy Scraps and I'm so happy with how beautiful they turned out.  They have layers of sheet music, script, text, Victorian flowers, ferns, butterflies and more! On the back of the header Cindy added tiny fairy books, a mini sheet music and 2 little fairy wish tickets. We decided to keep the back side of these in a collage style so when you cut out the fairies on the front they will have a mix of pretty colored ephemera on the back rather than being plain white.  You just need to decide what images you love best from the front and back.  There are still some single Fairy Creative Scraps HERE in our online store on sale.

I decided to also include 3 of the Shadow Box 3D frames in this blog giveaway because they they work so great with our Altered Fairy Scraps as you can see in this sample Vicki created below and a sewing one HERE on her blog.  Vicki is the designer of this Portrait style AccuCut Die and the Landscape Die as well.  We have a List of Stores HERE that carry the die(s) as many stores will let you use their dies if you purchase paper from them, or charge a small fee. Please call ahead before making a special trip as I'm not sure if every retailer listed is a brick & mortar store.


Okay, here is our new little Christmas Mail Clear Art Stamp set!  We decided to do this as a small set as we already have our large SL08 Vintage Christmas and 3 medium holiday stamp sets, SM21 Snow Bunnies, SM22 Christmas Joy  and SM27 Seasons Greetings.  This set is shipping to stores now.  Our DT ladies just received this set so I should have cute samples to show soon.


I do have another beautiful sunflower card to show you that DT member Marisa Grosson recently created with our SM34 Sunflower sets and you can see more HERE on her blog



Look at these very cute cards DT member Hedi Blankenship designed using images from our double sided Girlfriend Creative Scraps. I love the way she used the pink tickets from the set and her extra embellishments. You can get more details HERE on Heidi's Blog.


Look at this fabulous album DT member Flo from France created! She used our Photo Studio Clear Art Stamp set on some of the pages (like the oval label stamp) and the detail she puts into all of her projects is amazing! 


Here is a page from the inside of Flo's book with ALBUM stamped and you can see more HERE on her blog

Lacy Igo won a Photo Studio stamp set recently on one of our giveaways and she designed are really pretty album and used some of the stamps like this one on her cover. You can see more pages HERE on Lacey's blog. She also made a really fun Halloween scrapbook page you can see HERE


I love how sweet this Halloween card turned out that DT member Linda Duke created using one of the little witches from our Halloween Image & Journal Notes Booklet with a Spellbinders die and ribbon from Sharon's store. You can get all the details HERE on Linda's blog.


Check out this spooktackular layout DT member Mary Hamer designed using images from our double sided Halloween Creative Scraps!  You can see more photos and get details HERE on Marys Blog.



NEWS! - Our guest designer next month is Sheila Rumney and she is also on the Tattered Angels Design Team has created some fantastic samples with our products and theirs, such as this cool Halloween layout.  You can see more photos and 2 more projects Sheila altered HERE at Tattered Angels using our  Sew Nice and Garden Creative Scraps. 


Lastly, I wanted to tell you about the latest  'Anything Goes' challenge that Darlene Pavlick is hosting HERE over at Splitcoast Stampers, to use any of our products to create a sample. Anyone is invited to join in the fun and you can see the samples people have posted so far in a Gallery HERE.


Wow, this ended up being such a LONG POST but I had so much I wanted to share!  Don't forget to leave a comment here on this blog post to be entered to win our GIVEAWAY for: 2 sheets of our Altered Fairies, 2 Little Blessing, 2 Vintage Photos, a Christmas Mail Stamp set and 3 Shadow Box 3D Frames! 

Tell us what you like best and I will announce the winner next Monday morning, Sept 20/10  when we have our DT Halloween Challenge! 

 PLUS - I have a really awesome and big Halloween party image I will be posting as a free printable gift!

For those asking about our new Down on the Farm set, we are releasing it the first week of October!
