Hi Everyone,
Our new Couple of Cuties Stamp Set has arrived and is shipping to stores now! This set turned out so adorable and I love this sweet card DT member Pam Hooten created with it! You can get Pam's instructions HERE on her blog and see 2 more very cute cards she designed with this stamp set! The photo of the stamp set seems to be missing on Shopatron right now so I've shown it below.

When this wonderful little candy box from Beate Johns arrived in the mail I was amazed at how beautiful and clever it is! Beate even created a video tutorial on making these boxes after she was inspired by Angie Tieman (the original creator) from Splitcoast. The boxes look easy (if you have a Scorpal). The fancy top was cut with a Top Note Die from Stampin Up and embellished using our Vintage Christmas Stamp set. We had a larger Chipboard Album in this shape that sold out but will be back later this month. Click HERE to watch the video (you need to login) and get the supply list from Beate on Splitcoast Stampers or view the video here on youtube.

Beate also created this stunning Christmas card using our Believe Stamp Set and I love the way the card sits up easel style! Beate stamped the decorative corners and flourish on the right side using our Serenity Prayer Stamp Set and she gives step by step instructions HERE on the Crafty Secrets section of her blog if you scroll down past the box and cracked glass tutorials. (you need to login)

Head DT member Vicki Chrisman created a set of 6 great tree ornaments using images from our Christmas Creative Scraps. You can see them all HERE on her blog and get the details. I love the way she turned some of them into mini shaker boxes and added shimmery snow. The fancy frames are here from Tattered Angels.

Here is a cute Christmas photo wall hanging keepsake Vicki also made using the snowman and lady with a sentiment from our Christmas Creative Scraps on one of the wood pieces from our Wood Clipboard Album. Red check paper is from our Earthy Paper Pad.

You can see the snow couple up close here.

Past DT member Lisa Zappa made this cute tags last Christmas but I wanted to show them again because they are perfect for dressing up Christmas Baking gifts. Lisa used our Mini Chef stamp set and the Merry Christmas stamp is from our Vintage Christmas set.

Another popular stamp set with a baking theme is our Sweet Stuff Set that Darlene Pavlick used to make this sweet birthday card.

Here is the same Sweet Stuff Stamp Set which DT member Heidi Blankenship used to design this special layout of one of her sons in the kitchen baking with her. Heidi used 'Labels' Spellbinders Nestabilities set to die cut cardstock to stamp on.

I wanted to tell you about a fun challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers that Lori Lynn Washburn is hosting. Lori made it easy for anyone to join in and post a sample created with any of our products - you just need to add any 5 embellishments/ Lori used 5 black rhinestones on this cute card she created using the trailer image from our Travel Creative Scraps. You can see all the samples in the Gallery HERE and get the details HERE.

I'm excited that our next DT challenge that Vicki is hosting will be Dec 7th and it's a Cooking/Baking theme , so be sure to come back and see what everyone creates!

Wishing you joy and creativity

I love the little girls sitting across from each other...they are just adorable. The santa is great too! Vickie always creates great things, her tree must be awesome.
I have always been her #1 fan!
