The Winners, Vicki's Tutorial, Wood Knobs and Peek at New Men Stamp Set!

Hi Everyone,

We have 3 Winners between the Linky Party and Giveaways!  We had 27 entries and so many fantastic entries - so a big thank you to everyone who entered!  I used and  #12 WON the July Linky Party, so Congratulations to Cammie and you can see her cool July 4th  stamped popcorn bowls on her blog!
We had 107 entries for our New Stamp Giveaway and Congrats to #74 Monti who also entered the Linky Party. 
I sent out our Monthly Newsletter yesterday but I had the wrong link for our new stamp giveaway, so some people were leaving comments on on a Giveaway from March. To be fair I did 2 giveaways, one for the right post with 97 entries and one for just the July 8 entries which had 183 but 17 from July from July 8, so Congrats to #6 CraftyFoody who can pick all 3 new animal stamp sets or a mix of

DT Leader Vicki Chrisman has great tutorial on printing on tissue and a Giveaway for CD 3!  She printed on  Tissue from Canvas Corp and created a bunch of Candle Wraps using different papers from CD#3. Her tutorial is very well done with more tips & photos and check out her cute map candles. If you missed it my Stamping on Tissue Candle Tutorial is here.

 Our 3 Animal Stamps sets will be in stock tomorrow and I've been trying to add them to our Shopatron store but their system is temporarily not letting me. I will do a post tomorrow with all the links.  Look at this cute card by Sophie La Fontaine using Animal Party

We have the 1.5" Wood Knobs in stock and they come in a 6 pack (screws not included) for $3.95. You can paint, stain, stamp and decoupage them with images, words, copies of photos and more.  Add knobs to lids, dress up furniture and embellish various projects. You can also super glue to turn them into tacks or magnets. Note: if you are decoupaging paper you have printed on an ink jet printer, first spray the printed paper lightly with Krylon Matte Sealer before using Mod Podge or other decoupage glues. 
See my post where I used text & sheet music papers from CD 3 on these knobs.

These are some that Vicki made using images from papers on CD 3.

Look at this wall art plaque Jan Hennings made using a piece of paper from CD 3 that has shading to add a 3D look. Jan used it to showcase the the stamped chair she embossed.

This is our SL53 Mustache Men Large Stamp Set we have on order but my manufacture is so busy it will likely be a couple of weeks before we receive them.  We have a couple of sheets of matching papers that will likely be a digital download as well.  Too bad we did get this set done for Fathers Day but it took a while to get it right.

Do you like this set? What do you think of a digital paper download?

We also have 2 New FUN Halloween sets coming soon, a large Halloween Labels set and Best Witches will be a medium set.

Thanks for all your comments & support!

Wishing you joy & creativity
