Day 2 Blog Giveaways, Free Vintage Printable, New Samples & Calendar Scraps!

Fav Pam Hooten Samples & her $50.00 Blog Giveaway
Our New Photo Challenge Contest
Today’s Vintage Ephemera Paper Printable Gift
More Inspiring Samples

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to our 2nd day of celebrations! Today you can enter to win DT Member Pam Hooten’s $50.00 Gift Certificate
HERE on her Blog and see more of this cool card she created with our NEW Car Classics Stamp Set! I love the way Pam did the little flags and added the map stamp and tiny cars! I think this set will be popular for Fathers Day and we had so many people ask for a vintage car stamp set!

Here is a pic of the new SL30 Car Classics Clear Art Stamp Set. These just arrived and are shipping to stores now, so you can ask your fav store to order it in for you. If you use our store locator HERE, please call ahead to make sure they have what you want in stock.

Pam has been on our Design Team since 2007 and she has created so many fantastic samples, so I’m going to share a couple of my favorites today but there are so many, so you can see lots more HERE in Pam’s gallery!
Here’s Pam’s little Bio so you can learn more about her:
Pam lives in Arkansas with her husband and has worked in the insurance business for 20 years. She is a past member of several design teams, including the Dirty Dozen Alumni on Splitcoaststampers and is also a current DT member for Our Craft Lounge and is a published
paper crafter. Her favorite past times are rummaging through junk stores, flea markets, antique stores and putting stamps and ink to paper!

I adore this picture frame Pam designed with her baby photo using paper from our Classic Paper Pad (ooops, I said Pastel earlier) and our Cherub Stamp set

I also love this plain wood box Pam altered using our Bird Lover Stamps!

Here is a great card Pam created using our other men’s Clear Art Stamp set called Favorite Fella’s

Okay, now I will explain about this weeks CONTEST. Every week the ladies over at Splitcoast take turns hosting a Crafty Secrets Challenge and this week Marcy Talbert is hosting and asking you to use a photo or photos with any Crafty Secrets products. You can make a scrapbook page, framed piece, mixed media canvas, altered clipboard...the sky's the limit. The winning project will receive $65.00 in prizes which I will show tomorrow or they can pick their own goodies!

Marcy posted all the DETAILS HERE with the code so you can post your entry in a special Crafty Secrets Gallery over at Splitcoast. It’s free to enter and a winner will be announced this Sat, May 1st, so get busy and have fun! If you don’t own any of our products, you can use any of our Free Vintage Printables like these 3 that I offered yesterday HERE.

Marcy hasn’t finished her sample yet but look at this wonderful layout she created last year using images from our Garden and Travel Scraps! You can click HERE to see the Gallery where people will be posting their entries.

Today our Free Printable Vintage Printable is an old Times Table from the 1800’s and not only is it super handy – it makes a great piece of ephemera paper you can print on any color paper and ink it up and distress it even more! I had some problems getting this to load so we have a link HERE to download it if it won’t get larger when you left click the image with your mouse.

I also saw this beautiful Mermaid card DT Marisa Grosson just designed using our Mermaid Stamps and I love the colors and tiny pearls she added. You can get all the details HERE on Marissa’s blog.

You also have to check out this very cool idea HERE on DT Leader Vicki Chrisman's blog that she got to turn one of our Chipboard Houses into a cover for a vase of flowers!

Okay, come back tomorrow and I will show you the new backsides of 3 of our Creative Scraps, Calendar, Domestic Goddess and a NEW sheet called Sew Nice! Plus we will have another giveaway you can enter and lots more goodies to inspire your creativity!
