I'm doing my post from Arizona as Scott and I are down here for the week fixing up a rental house we are going to sell. We're sleeping on a air mattress and sort of 'camping out' while we paint and fix it up. *I've had some internet problems and haven't been able to add the next batch of Digital Stamps yet - but they are coming shortly!

Vicki and Kathy have traded spots and Kathy is going to be our New Design Team Leader. After all these years Vicki deserves a break but she is still on our Team - thank goodness!
Julie Campbell is joining our DT Challenge today (see here beautiful Calendar Journal page on link above) but I've also picked 3 of my favorite samples from each Design Team Member during 2013. Julie hasn't been on our team for awhile so her's may be a bit older.
Julie has been creating fantastic art journals and she used our Halloween CD4 on these pages
This was a pendant Julie made with our Fairy Wishes - now Digital Stamp Set and the images are all larger and re-sizeable with the fairy writing 6" tall!
I like these cool altered pages Julie created using Barber Shop Digital Download Kit
The next 3 samples are by DT leader Kathy Clement who creates amazing mini albums and this one is a tag holder using our Girlfriend Scraps and Girlfriends Booklet
Look at this beautiful layered card Kathy made using our Garden Girls digital stamp set
I also loved this seaside album using our Bathing Beauty Digital Stamps
Here are 3 samples I picked that DT Member Vicki Chrisman made but it was really hard to pick 3!
Vicki stitched this album using one of the poppies from our Digital Poppy Stamp Set
I adore this clever gift card Vicki made using paper and the birdie from CD7 Sew Decorative and how it folds out to hold the gift card.
This big wall canvas turned out really cool Vicki also created with CD7, Sew Decorative
Here are 3 picks from samples by DT Member Michele Kovack. I adore this card using our Rose Stamp Set and Michele colored it with Inktense Pencils
If you click on the card below you can see the beaded snow globe which looks all frosty from our Snow Globes Set
I cheated here and included 3 of the great cards Michele made using our Vegetable Garden Digital Stamp Set
Here are 3 great samples by DT Member Darlene Pavlick and I love how Dar created this fold our card using our Valentine Download Digital Paper and Image Kit.
This was a fabulous album Darlene designed with a step by step Tutorial using our sewing papers and most of the images are also on the Sewing CD7 (except for some Button or Bobbin Card Printables.
I think this card is so pretty and clever the way Darlene designed it to open and using our Easter Blessing Stamps
I love everything about this card Rebekah created using Vintage Silhouette Digital Stamps
Papers are from CD 1 Creating with Vintage Patterns.
I'm not sure if it's the colors or the way Rebekah layered these large blooms to look
like flowering bushes but I really like this card
Here's a great spring card Rebekah created with the seed packet from our Garden Download Kit set, garden tools stamps and baby chicks across the bottom are adorable from our Spring Chicks Digital Stamp Download.
Now I have 3 samples by DT Member Sheila Rumney who has been posting so many fantastic Digital Tutorials showing all sorts of tricks - I learn something every time! Sheila used paper and designs from CD 3 Creating With Vintage Typography
I will come back when Google will let me add the links but Sheila did a wonderful Tutorial using sample of her daughter with CD7 Sew Decorative
Okay, I think I loved so many of the sewing samples - I picked 3 before I had a chance to go through all the other themes - but the colors and layout work so well here
Now it's DT Member Elizabeth Lincolns turn with 3 samples I picked including this artistic card she created using our Wine Lover Clear Stamps - also in a Wine Digital Download.
This card Elizabeth made using our Down on the Farm Clear Stamps has great colors and look at the cow bell!
I just showed this card last month but I love Elizabeth's clever idea of adding the stamp with the kids at the table looking out a window from our Winter Wishes Stamp Set
Lastly for DT samples, here are 3 by new member Cherry Nelson including this cute gift envelope she made using paper and images from our Retro Christmas CD
Cherry made this pretty card and matching envelope with our Queen Bee Set
Lastly, I had to add this cute set of cards Cherry made previously using our Girlfriend Creative Scraps which are on all marked down to $1.95 for the double sided sheets
What was my fave project I did last year? This heart album I made for my sweetheart with our Heart to Heart Digital Stamp Download and I was pretty happy with some of my tutorials but I will just add a link to our Tutorial Pintrest Board as and start our Linky Party!
I really like the way my Fairy Garden Dome and Tutorial turned out that I made using our Altered Fairy Scraps. The little fairy kids I used remind me of my niece and nephew and I let them pick out their favorite pieces and they wanted everything!
Also, the decoupage plates tutorial I did using our CD #2 Creating with Vintage Illustrations.
