New Sewing Printables & Stamp Giveaway, See Word Art Wed Challenge!

Hi Everyone come check out our New Vintage Sewing line and leave a comment to be entered to WIN ALL of IT!


I've come back and added links to the first 3 items of our New Printable Sewing Theme Line in our online store.The printable papers, stamps and ephemera will be added this week and you can see previews below.   

Update: Cindy, our talented graphic designer is back, feeling a bit better and waiting to go for tests.  Please keep her and our shipper Shelley who is currently in the middle of chemo treatment in your prayers and thoughts. Shelley adds the nice free gifts to you orders and is battling - but also beating breast cancer.

Here's a link to the Creative Studio Printable Signs
All the printables are re-sizeable high resolution 300 dpi/ppi files you can print over and over (for personal use).  

Here's a link to our $2.95 Printable Button Card Download with 8 fun high resolution cards on two pages in a mix of retro to Victorian floral themes. They make great card fonts, gift tags and embellishments for creative projects. 


Here's an adorable sample that past DT member Marilyn McIldoon made using some drafts I took to the Victoria Show where she helped us.


Here is a link to our $2.95 Printable Bobbin Cards which can be re-sized, cropped and printed over and over to create cards to hold ribbons and lace, or use as frames, gift tags, pockets, card fronts, etc. You can also reduce them to a small size to hold floss, twine and use as embellishments.

The rest of these items are coming but the Sewing Ephemera needs to be finished and I hope Cindy can return to work today

 Here are the sewing papers with a few new ones added and there are still a couple more to finish. 


You can see some of the Digital Sewing Stamps and Ephemera (like the flower button's Vicki stitched) here on my last post and there is more to come with a big sewing machine and more fun images like this awesome button card that is 8" x 8" at 300 dpi/ppi  (pixels per inch).

 I feel rotten that I forgot to include info in my last post about us being a sponsor for Word Art Wednesday and the Design Team ladies including Karen Letchworth, Helen Phelps, Rea Custer, Gemiel Matthews and JoAnn Atterbury have all done a fabulous job creating samples Crafty Secrets products!  You can check it all out on their Blog and you still  19 hrs to enter the challenge and maybe win a $40.00 Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate!


Here are a couple of photos from the Sewing and Craft Show we were at in Abbotsford, BC this weekend.  Below is the talented Jessie Hurley teaching our Make n Take and it was a fun weekend!  Sometimes it feels like a love fest when the booth is filled with excited women and you hear them all making happy sounds when they see something they like and get fired up with creative ideas.

Look - there is a man in the booth!  A rare occurrence but we actually had a couple of men do our make n take at the last show.


 I'm super excited for you to see the fantastic projects our DT ladies are creating for our Challenge and Linky Party starting this Monday, April 1/13!
Check out this awesome card DT member Darlene Pavlick sent me using one of the button cards and papers.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you like or don't and I will draw a winner next Monday, April 1 when our April Linky Party starts.  I know on Facebook some people said they don't do digital and - it is my goal to find a company to license some of our products - so keep your fingers crossed but don't overlook all of the advantages digital offers!  I will cover the Pros & Cons on my next post.

We leave tomorrow to stay at a friends house in AZ for a week but I'm bringing my laptop and will post from there.

Wishing you joy and creativity!

Love the button cards!

Vicki Chrisman said...

Everything is so COOL!!

Sharon said...

I really, really like the round sewing ephemera - they look like the labels for vintage spools of thread. I have your "material girl" stamp set which I use often, so all of the new papers and embellishments would look great with this set! Thanks for the chance to win.

Wow ! I love the old sewing images. This is the stuff from my mother, and grandmothers sewing basket. I still have some of the button cards, and some free needle giveaways from store openings etc. I do not do digital, work on some clear stamps please. I am a Senior citizen, goodness these bring back memories.

Sarah said...

Oh, Sandy, this is your best collection yet! I love the spool labels and all of the papers and the button cards and...well... all of it!!

Becky Dunham said...

I LOVE this collection Sandy! Everything seems just perfect to me - can't think of a single thing I don't like. I hope Cindy is feeling well soon. Now I am off to Word Art Wednesday to see if I can get into the challenge over there. Would love to win some of your goodies :)

Rene said...

I love everything--your ideas just keep coming and they are great!

Kate said...

I really love the button cards with all the vintage people. I love all your products but I don't do digital. I am so sad your clear stamps are going away:( I create a lot of mixed media so I need to have a physical stamp in my hands. But I do use a lot of images and clip art from your awesome cd's. Please don't stop making vintage stamps!!

SheriE. said...

I love the button cards and spool cards. Can't wait to get a closer look at the papers.

Mary Mac said...

I love the button cards and sewing papers. I have so many friends that I can use this collection to make cards and photojournals for.

Kathy/NorthCarolina said...

Up til now, I haven't done digital....but your papers and images are so gorgeous, and such a staple in my crafting that I am slowly, slowly learning. These new items are fantastic! I love the handmade signs....the only thing I might change there is to make it look like this: BE a work of art, or WEAR a work of art...or make those two words bold or italic or something. Somehow, it reads easier that way. I especially love the button cards!!!! I do think this is your best work to date, and I am going to have to earn some $$ so I can get my hot little hands on them!

I love the button cards. They make me remember when my Mother sewed all of our school dresses.

Sue C said...

I love digitals! They are so versatile. My favorites here are the bobbin cards and the button cards with the roses. I love flowers. : )

Well, I love everything! I am not the greatest at getting this digital business down pat, but I am tryin and want to continue to learn. I think I do need to update my Windows program though and just wish it was not so expensive!

Barbara Bennett said...

I LOVE sewing themed ephemera, paper, stamps, embellishments, etc etc and will be super excited when your new collection is available for sale. I've been making sewing-themed cards for a local quilt shop for the past 3 years and I'm always on the look-out for more 'stuff' to create cards. Thanks so much for feeding my paper-crafting passion!!

Carol Gibson said...

I love those button and bobbin cards.

Debbie K. said...

I like it ALL! Especially the button and bobbin cards. I'm fine with digital as they can also be used with rubber stamps. Really, there isn't much I don't like...lol! Crafty Secrets has wonderful products, no doubt about it.

First of all, Ilove Crafty Secrets and the gals that work so hard with Vicki. I enjoy sewing and love the button cards. I make cards for cancer victims and children in crisis. Sewing cards are just a delight for anyone. Thanks for a chance to win something.

Your sewing themed printables are right up my alley! I have sewed for years and love all the old fashioned sewing things. My sewing friends like to receive note cards and birthday cards made with a sewing theme too. Crafty Secrets keep up the good work and sharing such wonderful Vintage products with all of us. Thank You!
