Win More Booklets and See More Cool Samples!

Yippee Pam Hooten is another one of our talented design members who creates great samples with our products and this is her turn to give away some of our Heratwarming Vintage Image & Journal Notes! She is doing 2 draws May 12 on HERE on her blog Iris Garden for a full set of all 4 booklets, and for a set of 2 books to a second place person.

All she wants you to do is leave a comment on her blog telling her what she should do with these 2 old chairs she got. She can’t decide if she should paint them, or just sand off any flaky paint and add a clear sealer? Don’t forget to leave your name, or be sure to go back and check if you won! Plus – you have to see the adorable samples she has created on her blog using our images!

Here are a couple of other samples Pam has
created that I adore!

Ooops, after I picked them I realized they both have birds!

She stiched the fabric bird from our 'Flowers' Homespun Cotton Scraps. She used our Bird Lover Stamps

Don’t forget to check out the more samples on Our Website Here that design team have been creating!

Plus here is another great sample by our guest designer this month; Joanne Allison.

"A jar of something homemade is always a nice gift but it’s even nicer if you dress it up a little. A stamped label looks sweet and the lid cover takes advantage of the fact you can curve polymer stamps to fit different shapes – I curved the cherry border onto a large block and stamped three times to make a complete circle. I chose mulberry paper as it’s soft enough to ‘drape’ a little over the lid and make a pretty frill.
A linguistic note: I’m British so it’s ‘jam’ to me, ‘jelly’ would fit on the label just as well :o)
Stamps: Kitchen Classics and Adore alphabet (Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps)

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Other: Prismacolor pencils/OMS/stump, gingham ribbon (Bazzill), sticky mailing label, white mulberry paper
In case you missed my last blog post HERE, I posted some poems for Mothers Day from my collection if you want a poem for a card or layout to honor your mom. You can copy and paste them into a word document and change the font style and size.

Please check our Store Locator Here to support a retailer near you but call first to make sure they have what you want in stock!

You can also shop online for all our products
here at Shopatron and one of our retailers or we will fill your order!

Have a FUN Weekend and be sure to take the time to honor yourself if you are a mother!

I just read your mom poem. I lost my mom January 5th & cant believe its September already. I loved your Poem & it is all true. I just wish I was at a point I could have something too feel guilty about. I dont know how to do life without my mom. Its so hard the hurt. Thanks, cut & pasted so I can read it again. M
