Summertime, DT Samples and Pinterest

Hello, Friends!

 I hope you all are having a good week. The summer is passing by so quickly.  Some kids here in North Carolina are already back in school.  It seems like the long, lazy days of summer are a thing of the past.  I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood summers: swimming in the pool, playing kickball with all the neighborhood kids, staying up late to catch lightning bugs and play hide and go seek....those were good times!  

Speaking of summertime, I want to remind you that Sandy has a fantastic offer going on in the Crafty Secrets online store.   With every order you place, you will receive a FREE download of our gorgeous Digital Summer Printable. There are 12 different vintage images printed in high resolution on this sheet along with several words and phrases that you can add to your cards, scrapbooking layouts and mixed media projects.  Here's a peek at what you get:



I used the beautiful phlox seed packet to make this vintage card:

DT member Sheila Rumney used our digital Radiant Papers to make this beautiful layout and has a wonderful tutorial on her blog explaining how she did it.

Know someone going on a cruise?  DT Member Darlene Pavlick created this fun travel themed card using our Travel Creative Scraps

DT Member Michele Kovack broke out her watercolors to create a stunning shabby chic card using our Sing for Joy digital art stamps

I also want to remind you that we have a fabulous Crafty Secrets page on Pinterest!  If you visit this page, you'll find dozens of samples, inspiration and tutorials galore!  Sandy even has a tutorial that explains how to use the FREE paint.net program to work with digital product.

You can while away the last few days of summer learning how to create with digital images and relax while getting great ideas to use in your craft room.

Don't forget that the August Linky party is just a few days away.  Hoping you'll be playing along with us this month.  A $50 prize goes a long way in our online store.

Thanks for stopping by!  
On behalf of Sandy Redburn, I wish you joy and creativity!

Kathy

I must tell you how much I love my stamps and scraps that arrived today. You shipped so fast! Everything is wonderful! Thank you for the free Easter Cotton Scraps! The quality of everything is so nice. I think this is the first time I have ordered, and I will again. I am glad to have found you on Pinterest.
Thanks so very much!
