Anyone who enters our Linky Party this week and posts a sample using a Crafty Secrets product is eligible to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate. Plus every entry will be able to choose 1 Free Christmas Printable.  Here are FAQ on NEW our Online CraftyVintageGirl Store. Bonus: - lower shipping and instant links for digital items!  Eventually we will leave our Shopatron store as it's so limiting.

I had DT Leader Vicki Chrisman create samples using our 2 new Printables - a Retro Christmas and Christmas Kids Bowl/Pockets  to test them and she is posting details and photos on her Blog for our DT Challenge. They turned out super cute for $2.95 with no shipping and look how you can use the panels to create baskets or treat pockets!


 Scroll down to enter the Linky Party or to see entries but first you have to check out the fun samples our Design Team have created for our Christmas Challenge.

Michele Kovack

 Julie Campbell 

Darlene Pavlick 
  
Rebekah Faries
 
Melissa Bove  

Melissa lives in New Jersey, less than 10 minutes from the coast and one of the hardest hit areas of the hurricane and still has no electricity so she can't post today.  Thankfully she and her family are all safe but she said it's a total disaster. I wanted to donate and asked her about the Red Cross and she said they are out full force helping people so I've donated $200.00. I had to do something to help - I'm a Sandy!  Maybe I should start going by my legal name Sandra as Sandy is a downer now.  Here are 2 cute cards I found that Melissa made previously with our Little Girl and Little Boy Stamp Sets


I also came across these great Free Printable Gratitude Quotes I posted last year and thought I should re-post them and add them to our Pintrest page.  I collect these and we have 8 hand lettered quotes on CD 3 like this.  I've thought about selling a kit with a 52 for a weekly calendar.  Please let me know if you like this idea? 




 Here are 2 more Digital Art Stamp Sets that have been added to the store - 
M01 Bird Notes and S22 Queen Bee and I love how big the designs are now!



The original crown was small so we added a new larger 5"wide crown to both the Bee and Bird Notes sets


**Here is where to enter our Linky Party which runs until Nov 11/12 Sun Night at 12:01.
When you click on the 'next' icon simply upload a photo and if possible please link back here and I know it would mean so much to those who enter if you left an encouraging comment. Also - don't be a chicken - show us what you have created! We really want to see!





 Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to WIN our 2 New (and last) Clear Art Stamps and all 5 Christmas Printable Templates!

Hugs,
Sandy,  aka Sandra

Congrats to all the the new DT members, I would love to be one, where do I sign up? I will get my entry for the linky party finished and posted soon. Thanks guys, Monti

Erin Glee said...

Oh I LOVE the new Christmas stamps! I have to go measure my Tim Holtz for Sizzix die, but I think it cuts one inch tickets and will go perfectly with the three cute Chritmas tickets in the Postal Set. Snow Globe is a beautiful set, too....I can see using permanant ink, then covering the circle with Glossy Accents for that raised, shiney look of glass!
Thank you for the chance to win these stamps! (We don't have a printer, so please don't put my name in the hat for the five printables~ Thanks!)

Ann Marie said...

LOVE the new Christmas stamps!! I can't wait to use them on my cards this year, and winning them would awesome!!
I think a kit with the gratitude quotes is a terrific idea. I've always wanted to try making my own calendars so a kit would be perfect!
I'll do my best to gather up my courage and enter the Nov. Linky party, lol. I always love seeing everyone's entries!

Personally Created (Michele) said...

The Christmas templates are great! I'd chat more, but I must get to work on a project for the Linky Party!

Love the new items...I have always loved your products. I'm sad that these are the last stamp sets :( because I'm such an old fashioned fart, but I'm just going to have to get on the digital bandwagon because I can't miss out on your new releases. Your design team has done an awesome inspiring job again, I'm heading back to study their projects more closely.
