New Stamps Arrived, Cute Free Printable & New Samples!

I'm so HAPPY to say that our NEW Stamps arrived today and they will start shipping to stores tomorrow! Plus, for those of you that don't have a store near you and want to buy online they are also now available through Shopatron here!

Even our design team is anxiously awaiting these new sets as I only had a couple of each of the demo samples this time. You will start to see all sort of cool samples popping up in our online gallery and on our design team members blogs soon!

If you missed the adorable little witch card Anna Wight created, or the cute Birthday cards by Michelle Wooderson, you can scroll down to the next couple of posts here to catch them.

Before I forget if there are any stampers reading this that live in the Tulsa OK area who LOVE our stamps and are interested in coming to the CK Show in Tulsa August
22 & 23 and demonstrating our stamps - I need HELP
at the show! Even 2 friends could take turns. Please me at
if you are interested and tell me a bit about yourself and add a link if you have a gallery or portfolio of any kind. I can pay in money and free product.

Here are the other two new stamp sets. SL16 Bithday Kids is available NOW, but the only item held up is the SL 17 Glamour Girls set as it was revised, so we are waiting to get them later in August now.
Now I want to share a FUN Little FREE project with you! A few months ago I was surfing in Splitcoast galleries and I came across this adorable card designed to look like a toaster by Linsey Rickett, see more detail here on her blog. She used our Little Chefs stamps to decorate it and it was so darn cute I contacted her to see if she would mind if I scraplifted it.
So when I came across a vintage valentine toaster, Cindy our head graphic designer said she could turn it into a little B&W pattern. You can stamp on the toaster and toast and cut them out . I was going to make a sample but we are too swamped, so if any of you do please email me photos and I will post them! How about "A Toast to You!"

You can double click your mouse over the B&W pattern to make it larger and then save it in a picture file, so you can print it in different sizes, but a 4 x 6" size looks great and would make a cute card to leave for someone special at breakfast.

Tonight I also came across these beautiful cards Lisa Zappa from our design team created using images from our Girlfirends Booklet. They would be perfect to decorate a girly room.
You can get more details on Lisa's blog Shapbby Chick Junk here! You can see any photos to see them larger.
I can't belive it is the end of July! Marisa has been our July guest designer and has created so many stunning cards. I really love this bithday card she made using paper from our Pastel Paper pad and an image from our Childhood Image & Journal Notes Booklet. Thank you Marissa for all your inspiration!
Here is a link to Marissa's blog which is brimming with inspiring samples!
I hope you all have a great weekend!

O.k. It;s all so surprise!
Marisa your samples this month have been exquisite. Thanks so much for taking the time to create your lovely samples. I'm gonna have to sign up to be google blogger if I want to make comments on your blog though.
The toaster IDEA is Fabulous!
If I had the French Mail set ...I'd be making some FRENCH TOAST! But I've got some other ideas. Thanks for the inspiration ladies

Hats off to Marisa for a month of wonderful samples! Thanks for the toaster printable I remember seeing this on SCS - it is great!The downside is we're getting ready to leave for vacation (no time to play?) upside the LSS store in Pittsburgh carries Crafty Secrets - YEAH!

Wow, lots of stuff going on with fabulou Crafty Secrets! I am absolutely in love with this new Halloween set--it is mine, I tell ya, hehe! Thanks SO much for mentioning me and posting my toaster card--I find the printable one you found even more delightful than my own! I love it! Your designers are awesome, these cards are gorgeous--and who do I have to bribe to get private coloring lessons from Anna W.?!?! That chick rocks!!! Thanks for sharing all this great stuff! I'm off to shop for my new crafty secrets stamps, yay! :)

Thanks Sandy for having me as guest designer for the month of July and to all those who left comments on my blog. I thoroughly enjoyed it and had so much fun with the different stamps, paper and booklets. I totally love your new stamp sets coming out and look forward to seeing what everyone will be making with them. Love the toaster idea and the image is just perfect. Thanks again.
