Annoucing CHA Previews & Giveaways, Plus Great New Samples & Ideas!

Hi Everyone,

It's been a busy week as we are getting ready for our Online Wholesale Trade Show (July 18 - 25) where retailers will be able to place orders online and get to pick from 2 different Gift Packs. (we're not attending this smaller CHA show). Each day next (July 11-15) week I will be showing 2 of our new Clear Art Stamp Sets and doing a giveaway, so be sure to come back and check them all out! You will have all week to leave comments and the 5 Winners will be announced on Mon, July 18 when we do our next DT Challenge "New Product Show Offs!".

Here is a run down of the New Clear Art Stamps I will be showing each day.
All of these New stamp sets listed will be available later this month!

Friday, July 15 - SL45 Vintage Labels & Frames, SS25 Keys to Life, SS26 Take it Easy and more Surprises!

It's been awhile so I have a bunch of great new samples to show you!

The next 3 photos show samples created with our new Mini Vintage Creative Scraps and DT Member Pam Hooten made these cool ATC cards using the Mini Scraps and paper from our new CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns. You can see them in detail HERE on Pam's Blog.

DT Member Heidi Blankenship created this quick necklace using a 1" circle punch and placing the Mini Scrap image in one of the pendants we've started selling. Sadly, a bunch of our circle Epoxy Sticker went missing at a show so we only have the silver pendants but they are great because they already have the bail built in. We also have more necklaces on order.

DT Member Julie Campbell created these necklaces using images from the Mini Scraps with some glitter and added Epoxy square stickers (sorry we sold out of these square silver shapes) but several stores stock a variety of mini shapes and frames now. The epoxy stickers are fun because they are so easy and add an instant finish.

DT Leader Vicki Chrisman has been busy creating a variety of jewelry pieces such as these brass pendants we have in stock. You have to come back on Wednesday and see the fabulous bracelet, barrettes, ring and microscope slides she's made using supplies from other retailers as well.

You can use a variety of mediums like Diamond Glaze by Judi Kins, Crystal Effects by Stampin Up, or Glossy Accents by Ranger to seal your image or you can leave it. The images also look look really pretty if you doodle on them with a Clear Gelly Roll Pen (by Sakura).

You can see the pendant from the back here and how the clasp opens. You can squeeze the prongs together a bit with a pair of pliers to make it secure so it won't open easily.

Look at this pretty card that DT Member Tammy Roberts made HERE using an image from our Girlfriends Booklet and paper from our new CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns. I also love this one HERE that Tammy made using a variety of our stuff! 

I adore how the tiny floral and print patterns on the CD work so great for card making!  Remember you can also use the black PNG patterns to print on any color cardstock or paper and size the patterns to match your projects. I will be showing more black pattern samples and ideas next week. Look at how soft and pretty this pattern looks on DT Memeber Viola Mahr's card she created. I love the sentiments she also used from our Love & Support stamp set.

Look at this cool beach layout that DT Member Gini Cagle created using one of our mermaid stamps! You can see past mermaid samples and the Mermaid Stamps HERE and get all the detail and other supplies used HERE on Gini's Blog.

Here is a great digital summer layout that DT Member Victoria Warren-Mears designed for a challenge using 3 papers from the CD.  I'm loving how 3D it looks with the stars she made and the 3 faux metal buttons she used off the CD.  Victoria gives step by step instructions on how she created this fun digi layout HERE on her blog!

If you are scrapbooking your memories from July 4th check out this great layout that DT leader Vicki Chrisman created using our FREE Sheet Music Paper HERE (if you missed it) and there is also a link to our 2012 printable Calendar. You can get details HERE on Vicki's Blog on how she used the paper, watch and alphabet letters from the CD.  She is also selling that cool silver trim in her Etsy store!

Lastly, I also wanted to show you this cute card created by Lori Lynn Washburn for the Use it Up Challenge she hosted over at I adore the little 'party pooper' girl and crown she used from our Altered Fairy Scraps and sentiment from our Sweet Kids stamp set. You can see the Gallery HERE and join in any of the weekly challenges. 

I hope you are all having a fun weekend! It's getting sunny again here, we have company coming for a BBQ and a fun day planned for tomorrow, so life is good.  

Be sure to come back Monday and join in the fun as I debut some of our NEW Clear Art Stamps each day, have giveaways and show you loads of great idea!
