Mini Albums, Layout & Cards - Oh My! DT Challenge & Giveaway Mon, Oct 18/10!

Hi Everyone,

I had some computer grief this week and got delayed doing a post but I have some great samples to show you today and some exciting news for this Mon, Oct 18 - to see our 'Sewing on Paper' DT Challenge, enter our giveaway for 3 NEW Clear Art Stamp Sets and take a peek at our new website!

We are teaming up with Spiltcoast for breast cancer this month with Hope You Can Cling To and you can win prizes (including a $50.00 gift certificate from us)!  Darelene Pavlick from Splitcoast is hosting a challenge this week over at Splitcoast with the theme of 'Encouragement' using any of our products and I adore this pretty card she made using an image from our new Little Blessings Creative Scraps! You can join in the fun and get all the details HERE and check out the Gallery HERE.

Look at this lovely card DT member Julie Campbell created using an image also from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps. You can read Julie's story of Hope HERE on her blog and see her Take Adventures card and post HERE

Talking about 'making it pink', I came across this really cute idea that DT member Heidi Blankenship had back in 2008 to stamp little labels for chocolate bars using our Support the Girls Stamp set. She also stamped a cute top for her chocolate box and dressed up a candle in the same theme. You can see all the details HERE in on Heidi's Blog.

Sheila Rumney is our Guest Designer this month and I wanted to show you this Sew Nice layout she designed with a photo of her sewing friend using our Sew Nice Creative Scraps and Material Girl Clear Art Stamp set. I think my fav thing you can do with the little 'thread floss card' on the stamp set, is to stamp it and wind real floss around the card after you cut it out. She added a couple of these little thread cards to her layout and you can see more photos HERE on Sheila's blog.

You can also check out the fun recipe card holder Sheila created using one of our Wood Albums (on sale for $4.95), our Kitchen Classics Stamps and a piece from our Domestic Goddess Scraps.

Okay, now I have some cute mini albums to share!  DT leader Vicki Chrisman designed a great recipe album  with our Domestic Goddess Creative Scraps and Sweet Stuff Stamps with a Maya Road 5 x 7" Binder Album that turned out so cute. She used the inside part of the Scraps here on her cover.

You can see all the pages and get the details HERE on Vicki's blog. You can also check out a great Spooky Garland Vicki created using our Halloween Creative Scraps HERE on her blog.

DT member Pam Hooten created this pretty mini album also using a Maya Road mini album with images from our Vintage Photos Creative Scraps

I love the way Pam did sort of a 'life lessons and blessings' theme inside her album using various photos from this set with a mix of the quotes and words. You can see more photos of the other pages HERE on Pam's Blog.

DT Member Melisa Phillips designed this lovely album using a combo of products including images from our Garden Creative Scraps and I adore the autumn colors and theme you can see HERE on Melissa's Blog.

Here is a Halloween album Melissa created using a bunch of our halloween stuff including the Oct month from our Seasonal Calendar Scraps and images from our Halloween Booklet and Halloween Scraps and Halloween Postcard Kit. I totally thought the witch on the front was from our Postcard kit but it is from Cavallinni. I think Melissa glued it to one of our chipboard postcards you get in our kit. 

DT Member Heidi Blankenship taught classes a couple of weeks ago at the Memories Expo that Midland Care held in Kansas and they were a big hit with the ladies.

Here is a photo of one of the pennants from the cute Halloween Garland Class Heidi taught.

DT member Mary Hamer designed this pretty keepsake layout with an Autumn theme using the butterfly from our Halloween Cuts and a card back from our Vintage Photo Scraps.

On this layout Mary said she wanted to create a more neutral color palette so you can change the photo and used a little piece from our Sew Nice Scraps and I love her idea to stitch an elastic across the mat (see HERE on Mary's blog) and add the corners, so you can easily change out the photo.

Lastly I wanted to show you this cute 'Make a Splash' card that DT member Michele Kovack designed using our Bathing Beauties Clear Art Stamp set. You can get the details HERE on Michele's Blog.

Okay, don't foget to come back this Monday, Oct 18 to see our Stitching on Paper DT Challenge!

I will also be doing a great Giveaway for our 3 of our NEW Clear Art Stamp Sets - Down on the Farm, Christmas Mail and Little St. Nick!  Plus, I will have a printable gift for you, a PEEK at Our NEW WEBSITE and I'm excited to see what our DT ladies create!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Wishing you joy & creativity
