CHA News, Great Video, Samples & Last Day for Shop Hop Sale

CHA News & a Peek
Great Technique Video by Beate Johns

More Samples
Question on Image CD & Prize
Last Day for Shop Hop Sale

I’m so excited I have to show you a little peek of a couple of new items we have coming out for the CHA Show in Anaheim, CA next month! We will have several new Clear Art Stamp Sets including this Office 101 set (see box below)plus Alice in Wonderland, Animal Fun, Art Studio,
Created By, Flowers, French Phrases, Mermaids, Photo Studio, Vintage Designs and more stamp sets!

Plus – we will have new Creative Scraps and Shadow Box Kits by Vicki Chrisman! I will be announcing our Design Team Challenge to debut them and a great Giveaway next week! You can see some of the images from our Altered Fairy Scraps in the little box below.

Beate Johns from amazes me every time I watch one of her technique videos because she creates such great samples quickly, teaches cool techniques and makes it look so easy with step by step instructions! Check out Beate's latest 'Rolling Marbles Tutorial' video HERE. She used our SM5 Fairies Stamp set and shows you step by step how to create this pretty card!

Look at the pretty card DT member Michele Kovack designed using the little girl and kitten from our Couple of Cuties Stamp Set! Michele created 2 cards and will be posting the other adorable card on her blog HERE.

I adore this circle card DT Member Melissa Phillips created for Emma's Paperie . The little girl laying in the grass is from an old child's book I bought from the late 1800's and I had to buy the book as soon as I saw her. To me, the picture conveys pure bliss and it's on our Calendar Creative Scraps. I want to publish her and other beautiful images I have in large sizes. Would you like large images on a CD that you could print in various sizes to suit your projects? What would you like to see most? Birds, Children, Flowers, Paper Designs, Seasonal images??? Please leave a comment and tell me what you want most? I will draw a name Jan 5/10 for a $30.00 gift certificate for some of our new products! I really appreciate your feedback!

Vicki used the 3D Eiffel Tower Download Pattern we are emailing to everyone who places an order during the Shop Hop Sale. She printed it on a multi color pink cardstock. I love her idea to add a tea light under it. It takes 2 pieces 8.5 x 11” to make the 3D Eiffel Tower, which stands about 9” tall. It’s a bit of a pain to cut out and glue but it looks pretty cool. You could use it for fun dinner table d├ęcor, for a party hat, on a gift, or other creative project. Would you like projects like this on a CD???

Here is the link to the other Splitcoast company members involved in the sale.
I hope you all have a very fun New Years. We are going to see in Avatar in 3D Imax, then for Indian food and then to a local pub to bring in the New Year with friends. Have to live it up as it's my birthday Jan 1st. Older but wiser and I feel good. I've been on a health kick and I'm finally starting to lose some post menopasal flab!
I wish you a year filled with joy, creativity & love!

The projects are so creative and inspiring. I would love to see a mixture on the CD. Like backgrounds, images, and sentiments. Thanks for a chance.

DebbieB said...

I love, love, love floral and birds...I am very inspired by that kind of image. What a wonderful idea! Thank you for the giveaway!

Jane R said...

I love a variety of images, but it seems like I'm always a little short on holidays and can always use the inspriration as well. So, I'd love to see more holiday and seasonal images. Thanks for the great givaaway!

Marcy said...

You had me at "Alice in Wonderland" but Animal Fun and Mermaids? Be still my heart!

I think the CD idea is wonderful! I would love Seasonal and Children images.

Happy New Year, Sandy, and Happy Birthday too!

jennifer said...

I would love to see birds, botanicals, children - the Bird Children would be fantastic, Alice in Wonderland, eggs, feathers, nests. Thanks for the opportunity for input!

Florals and birds for sure, actually it all sounds pretty nice. Love the office set, I used a typewriter like that once, at an Aunts, wow, it was ancient then and that was 50 yrs ago !

LauraB said...

I think vintage labels for home products would be a great addition to your CD. Things like hair tonic, cleansers and kitchen appliances would coordinate so well with many of your stamp images and help make my cards look even more vintagey!

Maureen Morton said...

OH, my goodness! I love vintage kids and kitchen images, anthing from the 1950's and memaids. Thanks for this opportunity and Happy New Year!

Erin Smetak said...

A cd would be wonderful for a hoarder like me! I hate to use my scraps because I can only use them ONE TIME! LOL! So yes, I would LOVE to have a cd so that I can use images over and over again!

I would definitely buy the CDs with the images, projects, etc. Excellent idea and would make things even more versatile. The images I love are the birds, sentiments and the cute kids.


2amscrapper said...

I can't wait to see your Alice in Wonderland set. A CD would be fantastic. I, too, would like to see a mixture of things on it. I love vintage birds, as you can tell by looking at my blog. But I also love those adorable children. And I always need seasonal images. I guess I want it all! Happy New Year!

DebbieK. said...

Cynthia said...

Thanks for sharing these fun projects, Sandy! I'm very excited to see the new Clear Art Stamp Sets as well. I think it would be a great idea to provide a mixture of images and sentiments on a CD. This would give a nice "overall" source for projects. Thanks for the chance to win some CS goodies!

Cheri said...

nicole said...

I think your CD idea is fabulous! I love all things vintage. My favorite would be children. There is always something so peaceful and calming when I see children. I always smile. Keep doing a wonderful job, I love all your products. Also, have you ever considered adding any religious themes with a vintage twist? I have never seen that anywhere. You guys are so unique, I bet you could come up with something awesome. I would definitely buy them. Thanks for all you do.

csroyal said...

Oh yes, I love using CD's for my vintage prints!

How gorgeous all these creations are!!

Linda said...

Yes,yes, all the above! I LOVE all the beautiful images in your products. A CD with a variety of them that could be re-sized to fit any project I'm working on would be delightful! Happy New year!

Vicki Sopcak said...

My vote is also for a mixture of Flowers, Sentiments and Vintage images. Or maybe you could have several CD's that offer different images or themes. I LOVE all of your products....keep up the good work. Thanks for the chance to win.

Happy New Year!
I can't wait to see the new products. The sneak peak is very tantalizing!
I love the little girl laying in the field-daydreaming with the clouds.I'm a 'country girl"-so I'm drawn to these scenes. I'd really like to see more scenes l'm like that one-with a strong nature/family/friendship ties.
I enjoyed the painted marbels video--I've used a similar technique to color buttons and ribbons that I wanted a certain color. It works great.
Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone--

Theresa Grdina said...

I would love a variety of things on a CD....children, sentiments, birds, nature, and even some cupcakes!!

Linda Carson said...

A CD sounds exciting! I would like to see one of nature & one of seasonal. Thanks!

Cindy Holshouser said...

Boy would I love to have a CD with images. I would have to say nature images would be my first pick, but the children images would be fun too.

Nancy said...

love to win the CD. Your blog is so creative. I love birds. Nancy P.

Lillian Child said...

A CD containing images to use on craft projects ... awesome idea and one I would definitely use. I was born in the 1950's, so I love love to see vintage images. As a kid my favorite activities were: running through the sprinkler, swinging for hours at the park, playing dressup, tea parties, watching the clouds and counting the stars. Thanks so much for the chance at the sweet giveaway!

Susan said...

Happy New Year to you too! Looking forward to all the new products - the peeks look fabulous. I would love for you to do CDs with more images and templates. Thanks for a great giveaway!

I would love to have a CD with anything vintage but I especially would enjoy having some of the children's fairy tale images and images with the old advertisements. Thank you so much for a chance to win your giveaway!

All of the images you do are wonderful. The vintage kids are really cute, but I also love nature. Maybe a mix of butterflies, dragonflies, and flowers especially, but some birds and cute animals would be fine too. Thanks for asking for our input.

Unknown said...

I would love to see Crafty Secrets images on a CD!!! My favorites are floral and birds and all holidays. Here's to a great new year for you!

Hi...I'm looking for some Valentine's and Easter images. Christmas is always nice, too! And how about some for birthdays while you're at it. :)

I always enjoy and can use holiday images and more birds and florals! And yes, I think Crafty Secrets' CDs for downloading images in any size would be super wonderful!! Thanks for all the great images you publish and I love all the gallery ideas on your site! Crafty Secrets Rocks!!!

Valerie said...

Just found your blog again. Hope its not to late to get in on the draw. Your projects are wonderful but I probably wouldn't use a CD as its easier to google and get what you want on the computer sometimes.
