Fairy Stamps Arrived, Pixie Jar, Rose Card, Journal Pgs, Button Card, Halloween & More!

Hi Everyone,

I have such a great mix of cool samples to show you today.  Plus - both of our Fairy Wishes and Pixie Dust Sets arrived!  Look at this fabulous Fairy Dome DT Leader Vicki Chrisman created using the Pixie Dust stamps!  I love how she created a little woodland nest and stamped and cut out the house, butterfly, the pixie boy, his bag of pixie dust and the sentiment!

 Both of these stamp set turned out great and there are so many versatile ways you can combine them to create magical little scenes.  SL50 Pixie Dust is a large set.

Vicki has been busy 'junkin' with her sister Jan and has posted some great photos (I love the bike wheel photo holder!) Plus you can see the 4th of July Banner she designed for Scrapbook Adhesives and the adorable layout she made using our CD's.  I also love these fun pinwheels Vicki made using our American Beauty stamp setKeep scrolling down to see all her June posts

Look at this stunning car DT Member Michele Kovackcreated using our Rose Stamp Set.  The colors are so pretty and pop off the white cardstock. I’m just sorry I missed posting Michele’s giveaway in time for you to enter it. 

DT Member Julie Campbell is enjoying adding pages to her art journal and I love her whimsical hand writing, quotes and thoughts she is adding like this pg where she used a pocket watch off CD # 2.  Look at the way she stamped our Sunflower Stamp as a backdrop on one of her journal pages.

 DT Member Marilyn McIldoon says she’s become hooked on making Button Cards after she was inspired by the button card Melissa Bove created using our Material Girl Set.  On these 3 cute cards Marilyn combined it with stamps from our Artsy Banners and French Mail sets.

 Feeling Yucky is one of my favorite stamps and I adore this cute card Marilyn designed here on her blog using it.  The duckies and nurse are too cute!

 I posted this adorable pen holder that past DT member Marisa Grosson made using images from CD 3 on Pintrest but forgot to show it here on the blog with a link to Marisa's blog and other projects.  like her coasters. I love how she decoupaged these images from the mixed book page from the CD on all 4 sides of her holder.  Look around your house for possible surfaces you can re-vamp and check out dollar stores, garage sales and second hand stores for inexpensive items like this you can re-purpose and alter quickly.

Check out this fantastic Halloween card scene Sophie La Fontaine created using the adorable witch, cat, spider and web from our Halloween Fun set.  The Pumpkin is from our Halloween Postcard set.  The window is a SU retired set and I have been wanting to do a window set forever - and this just inspired me all over again!  You can also see her Halloween Dancers card and a very pretty card stamped with our Couple of Cuties Stamp Set!
 Hah - I'm back updating this post and Sophie just emailed me a new Halloween card that is so fun (love the TV) I had to add it!  Here's the link with all the details.

 Talking about our Couple of Cuties stamp set, I was thrilled to see the 2 page spread in the new July/Aug issue of Stampers Sampler where Lillian Lumachi from NJ (wish she had a blog to link to) used this same set to create 3 very pretty cards featured in the Touches of Chipboard article on pages 94 and 95. They are perfectly shabby-pastel-lovely!

If you live in the Goodyear-Phoenix AZ area check out the Phoenix Scrapbook Store inside the BrassArmadillo Antique Mall: at 13277 W. McDowell Rd.  It looks like so much fun - I want to go there!  UPDATE: I just found out it's Pamelas' store from StampinDamour.  She must order our stuff from our distributor Notions and I'm so happy to hear she has a store and stocks Crafty Secrets!
They have a bunch of Crafty Secrets products - as well as vintage-style scrapbook and paper arts items, vintage ephemera, collage and mixed media products from great companies - plus vintage flea market treasures!

On my next post I will show each of our 3 NEW Animal theme Clear Art Stamps SM45 Cutie Cats a medium set and 2 Large Sets SL51 Top Dog and SL52 Animal Party that I showed a peek of on my last post The drafts arrived and all stamped perfectly so I ordered 100 each to start. 'Super Adorable' is the best description.  Then we changed directions and finished our altered and fun Mustache Men Stamp set which I will share soon. 

Yesterday my first born daughter Katie turned 30!  How did it happen, the time went by so fast, I can still hear her sing song voice telling me about her day at school.  I'm so proud, you may have heard me brag she's an assistant producer on the new Bachelor Canada Show.  They have been shooting episodes and she did the 'away dates' so was traveling constantly and we are so glad to have her home for a bit!  We are all going to Greek Days in Vancouver today and then for birthday dinner! 

PS - My kitchen re-do is almost done!

PS 2 - I don't know where to link products now that we  have both the Shopatron and Etsy Store, so I linked to Shopatron and just added them to our Etsy Store.  I've been looking at building a new website with our very own store with links to Etsy and a Zazzle Store and will post details. I've become obsessed with bigger designs and want to offer T-shirts, pillows, wall art and more!

Until next time, wishing you joy & creativity

I love this picture of your daughter, it certainly captured her spirit wonderfully, best of luck to her.
Sandy, I would definitely be interested in your windows stamp set if you do make one up.

Happy Birthday to Kadi! She's an amazing girl! (ok.. woman)lol Just seems like our kids are always "kids" right? That store looks AMAZING!

I know Pamela but I looked everywhere for a name and couldn't see one on the website. She must be ordering our stuff from Notions but I'm delighted if this is her store! It's in the Antique Mall so it must be her. Thanks for the tip TLady!

I hope the fairy and pixie stamp sets will be available in the Etsy store. Wishing your family a wonderful birthday celebration for your beautiful daughter.

Your designers continue to amaze me with their creativity. Sophie's work is just super, and who would have thought to combine the tv with Halloween? So clever. Can't wait to see more of the animal sets. I'll be stalking your website to order!
