A New Giveaway and Winner, Album Sale,More Inspiration & We're Famous!

Hi Everyone,

I'm back and I have the random.org winner from the last post, # 180 Sharon from Arizona who has won our new CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns, a sheet of our new Mini Vintage Creative Scraps and 3 Albums I will show you.  Sorry for the delay - Blogger has been a major headache all week long freezing up and losing entire sections - errgg!


Be sure to leave a comment today to be entered into tomorrows giveaway for our new CD, a sheet the Mini Vintage Creative Scraps, a bunch of wonderful gold and lacey peel off stickers and a jumbo stamp set I think you will love!

As I explanied yesterday, I bought some albums, frames and stamp sets that Tattered Angels discontinued to focus on their paint products but I love their products as they work so great with ours! 

This 10-page Garden Album that Tattered Angels discontinued has an embossed tree on the chipboard cover and a Glimmer Glass fence across the front (can easily be removed).  The pages are a thicker paper (not chipboard) and the cream color is perfect for Glimmer Mist and stamping on, or you can glue paper on. There are 2 bi-fold pages that fold out from each side. Was Reg. $12.99, on SALE $6.95  This sample was designed by DT Leader Vicki Chrisman, who is on the Tattered Angels Design Team. Drat - she also made a great Travel Album but we have sold out until we get our skid back from the last show - sorry.


Vicki added the chipboard swirls, knobs and HOME letters (not included with the album).
She also removed the Glimmer Glass fence that is included and she did an outdoor theme but the album will work with any theme. 


The cover is chipboard and the 10 inside pages are a thicker cream paper which looks so great sprayed with Gimmer Mist and stamped on! The images are a mix from our Birds & Botanical (see the Iris) and Summertime Image Booklets, our Garden Scraps and several of the Clear Art Stamp Sets, like the bird from our Fairyland Stamp set. Size 8"w x 6"h.




I will get Vicki to post the album on her blog and include more details and tips on how she sprays the Glimmer Mist and gets such great blending with the colors.



The inside pages are a thick paper and I love the way these ones fold out!


Okay, next is the 10 pg Regal Album, discontinued from Tattered Angels which has a Glimmer Glass Fleur de lis window, three matching Glimmer Glass tab accents and tabbed dividers. Page size is 8"h x 5"w. Reg. $12.95, on sale for $6.95.


The Frosty Memories Album from Tattered Angels has a Glimmer Glass window with  accents and tabbed dividers. 8"H x 5"W size,  the pages are also a thicker cream paper, so great sprayed with Glimmer Mist and stamped on, or glue on paper. You can also cut the snowflake tabs off and use the album for a variety of themes.


We are famous, well a little more well known in Germany now, thanks to a great article that Nathalie Kalbach wrote inthe Summer Issue of the ScrapArtZine, a magazine published in Germany! Look at the fantastic samples she created - she made vintage look hip & trendy!
Nathalie interviewed me about how I got started but I can tell you it wouldn't be possible without all the fantastic people like our graphic designer Cindy van Koll and DT leader Vicki Chrisman, Jessica & Shelley, our DT ladies and my family!  We will be featured in an upcoming Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine soon as well!




I have some more fabulous samples to show you including journal book that DT Member Victoria Warren-Mears decorated with the birdie sheet music and accent papers on our CD


Look at this adorable card that DT Member Heidi Blankenship made  HERE using an image from our Vintage Photos Creative Scraps and a black flower print from the CD and how she colored the flowers. The great thing with the black PNG files is you can print on any color paper to suit your project.

I love this little chef angel from our Homemade Booklet and the way DT Member Tammy Roberts used our Cherish Stamp Set looks so sweet with her embellishments.


Don't forget to leave a comment here for tomorrows Giveaway . There are will be several really cool intricate lace stickers and the stamp set is 12 x 12", plus the CD and Mini Scraps.

Also, thank you so much for all the wonderful comments and feedback, it means the world to us!
