Hi Everyone,

I some fun things to share today!

Gone Batty Postcard & $30.00 G.C. - Linda Duke
Altered Clipboard by Pam Hooten
Vicki's Sweetchips House in Altered Arts Magazine
Splitcoast Challenge & Sample Galleries
2 New Creative Scraps
New Seasons Greetings Stamp Set
I'm off to 2 Great Shows!

DT Member Linda Duke has gone batty with this really cute Halloween postcard she created using one of the cards from our Halloween Vintage Postcard Kit. Each kit comes with 6 die cut ivory chipboard cards, the images and stamp set. I love the crepe paper wings Linda added to hers! You can get the details HERE on Linda’s blog plus you have until 7 pm Sept 8th to enter Linda's giveaway on her blog to win a Crafty Secrets $30.00 Gift Certificate with free shipping!

Look at this fun clipboard DT member Pam Hooten altered using a mix of images from our Calendar and the Girlfriend Creative Scraps. I love the way she used the old book pages to cover the clipboard. You can get all the details HERE on Pam’s blog.

Congratulations to DT member Vicki Chrisman, who has one of our Sweetchips Folding Houses featured in the latest edition of Altered Arts Magazine!

The Splitcoast ladies have been busy again with more fun challenges using our products. Look at this adorable card below that Lori Lynn Washburn created for her ‘Plaid Challenge’ she hosted.
Darlene Pavlick is hosting the next challenge and her clues are easy to guess this week. You can find out the answer and join in the fun HERE on Splitcoast.

We have some great new products arriving this Wednesday, Sept 10/09

Our new Seasons Greetings (available Sept 10/09) is a medium stamp set (6 x 4")
with beautifully detailed designs and lettering. The little bell would look great embossed gold or colored red and green. The 2 reverse corners are designed so you can also create circle frames, borders and cool star designs. The vintage Santa’s and winter girl will be fun to stamp and color. You can stamp the funny little Santa with his hands touching to create a border. The large sentiment is perfect to stamp in cards you want to send to your family or to a group of friends. This set is both classy and fun!

CS-07 Merry Christmas (available Sept 10/09) Wonderful vintage to adorable retro is the best way to describe this colorful collection of Christmas themed images and sentiments. The sheet size fis is 8" x 19" and folded in the middle to take less space - but includes 22 great images printed on a medium weight cardstock. The designs are perfect for dressing up Christmas cards, gift tags, scrapbook pages, keepsakes and an array of paper crafts!
CS-08 Birds & Blossoms (Available Sept 10/09) Beautifully timeless with a touch of whimsy is the best way to describe this pretty collection of birds and flower themed images. The sheet size is 8" x 19" and folded in the middle to take less space - but includes 22 different images on a medium weight cardstock. The designs are perfect for dressing up birthday and greeting cards, gift tags, scrapbook pages, altered art projects and an array of keepsakes!
Then, watch for our 4 next NEW Postcard Kits coming later this month! I will let you know as soon as they arrive and I'm so excited about how nice these turned out! You can see 1 image from each kit below

Lastly, I'm excited to say that I'm leaving today for a vacation/business trip with my husband to celebrate our 31st anniversary! Our first stop is the Brimfield Antique Show - which I've wanted to attend for 3 years now.

SO WHAT IS THE BRIMFIELD SHOW??? Only the largest outdoor antique show in the world and takes up over 23 large farmers’ fields! Held since 1959 in Brimfield, Massachusetts, three times each year, with over 6000 sellers and 130,000 visitors over the course of the week. Brimfield is about an hour west of Boston. I'm searching for great vintage images and books. I may pin a 'What I Want' sign on my back as I heard there are so many antiquers everywhere it works!
After, we are heading to exhibit at the Heirloom Stamp Show in Greenville, SC Sept 12 & 13. If you are close by I hope you can come and meet us at this fun and inspiring show!

PS – of course, our office and warehouse will still be open and shipping orders.

Wishing you lots of joy & creativity!

I just found your site by accident and wow is it neat! Your Halloween kit is really cool. I enjoy collecting Vintage Halloween items and posting them on my site. I'm going to put up a post about your items on
