Great New Samples, Winner and DT Hop Details With EP This Friday!

Hi Everyone,    Here is an adorable St Pat's card our DT Guest Designer Tammy Roberts created using one of our free printable images HERE on our website. I love how she printed it on fabric and added the bling.

I was at our warehouse for most of today so I'm posting this late.  We had 263 comments for our blog giveaway of our 2 new Clear Art Stamps and WOW - thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback! The winning number was 202. Congratulations to MelissaAnnie who said...

Sooooo beautiful! I just adore the Mother set!
xo from Alberta, Canada,

Here is a new adorable sample Guest DT Tammy sent me that she created using an image from our Seasonal Booklet. She used our Cherish Stamp Set to stamp across the top of her card and the sheet music paper is from our Radiant Paper Pad. I'm sad this pad has sold out and I wonder... would you like us to put the Radiant and Earthy Paper Pads (both sold out now) on a CD?  The other CD's we are working on are turning out so cool but they are taking longer than I planned because I'm greedy and driving our graphic designer Cindy crazy, trying to fit so many patterns in B&W and color on it. Details to follow soon!

Look at this pretty card that DT Member Pam Hooten created using the love birds from our Love Mail Scraps. Our DT ladies are loving these new Creative Scraps and creating so many fantastic samples!  See card details HERE on Pam's Blog.

It looks so pretty with how DT member Linda Duke used one of the scallop journal notes from the Love Scraps to decorate her girlfriend card here. She stamped 'Girlfriend' from our Cupcake Party Stamp Set and you can get all the supply details HERE on Linda's Blog.

I love this romantic card that DT Member Heidi Blankenship created using the new Love Mail Creative Scraps and how she tore and distressed some of the images from the sheet to create layers. You can get the details HERE on Heidi'ds Blog.

There is something so pretty about the combination of pastel pink & blue papers, it makes me sigh every time and this card is no exception because DT member Julie Campbell also used one of my fav images, the birdy with the crown from our Birds & Blossoms Scraps. She used the Artsy Alphabet set to stamp a double banner across the top of the card. You can get see more photos, including her beautiful 'Love Lives Here' card HERE on Julie's Blog.

I wanted to tell you about a card class Melissa Samuels is teaching in Richmond Virgina using our Altered Fairies Creative Scraps. Her cards are really unique and each one is so pretty

Joanne Allison is hosting a fun 'Take Flight Challenge' on Splitcoast this week and anyone can join in and post a sample! You can use any of our products with WINGS.  Joanne has all the details HERE and even has links to the free printables we have on our website with wings. She used a combination of our Altered Art, Believe and Mini Memories to stamp her card and cut the lady from our Earthy Paper Pad (sorry, it's sold out). See the Gallery HERE!

Marilyn from Victoria was such a great helper in our booth at the Sewing & Craft Show we did in Victoria, BC a couple of weeks ago. She sent me this photo of our booth and we had all 20' packed full of goodies. We are getting ready for the Creating Keepsakes Show in Portland, OR on Mar 25 & 26 and hope to see a bunch of you there! We will have a Flea Market SALE Table and a free gift with a $15.00 purchase.

Okay, now I have exciting news (in case you haven't heard) we are doing a Blog Hop with the Daisy and her talented Design Team from Eclectic Paperie and our our Design Team Members this Friday, March 18! Eclectic Paperie has a fantastic store and they will be having blog giveaway prizes and so will we here on the blog, so come back and check it all out!
Wishing you joy & creativity

Beautiful samples and I can't wait for the bloghop :)

Tammy Roberts said...

Congrats to the winner of these fabulous stamps sets! I also wanted to pop in and tell everyone... THANK YOU for all your sweet comments on my samples!

Oh such beautiful samples just love them all. REally wonderful ideas. Yes that would really be great to have the paper pads that are sold out put onto a cd would really enjoy that. Hope it happens now too. Thanks for all the wonderful creations I really enjoyed them all. Looking forward to the blog hop too.

The cards on here are truly breath taking, I adore them all.What a talented group of card designers. Beautiful colour combinations, gorgeous stamps, oh so much scrap-happiness!

these are all such gorgeous projects!

I love the idea of having the paper pads on cd. To be able to print the paper (or images for that matter) that you want for a card would be lovely.
Also have you thought of making that little chicken wire stamp as a stand alone stamp for a couple of bucks? The $24.00 price point on the large stamps sets is a lot and it would be nice to buy some of the images that are so adored seperately for those of us on fixed crafting incomes. Just a thought....I love all you do! I just need to win the lotto so I can purchase more of your absolutely stunning products!!!!!
