New DT Member, Over $500 in Giveaways & New Designs!

Meet Our New DT Member - Deborah March
Join in Our Celebration April 26 - May 1
See New Samples

I have lots of exciting new to share with you! We have a new DT member I want to introduce to you! Her name is Deborah March. She is Canadian lady I met her last month and she has since had 10 of her samples using our products picked up for publication! See her bio below.

I’m also excited about our BIG CELEBRATION starting this Monday, April 23, 2010 to Sat. May 1, 2010 to celebrate National Scrapbook Day! We will have over $500.00 in blog candy giveaways, free downloads, amazing samples and inspiring ideas for 5 straight days! Our talented DT ladies will be posting $50.00 blog candy giveaways throughout the week and the rest will post theirs on Sat, May 1 when we have our DT Challenge. This month the DT ladies are incorporating a photo into a project and Deborah will be the first person to post her $50.00 Giveaway this Mon, April 26 HERE on her blog.

Deborah Marches Bio - An Australian-born Canadian, Deborah is a very happily retired social worker living in Nova Scotia who now enjoys papercrafting as her “second career.” She teaches card design in her hometown of Halifax, dabbles in mixed media design, has won several card design contests and has her work published in numerous magazines. Deborah also gardens, creates stained glass pieces and “plays like a kid” with four busy little grand-boys. She is “tickled pink” to be a part of the Crafty Secrets Design Team.

Look at this beautiful birthday card she created with one of the chipboard pieces and images from our Best Buds Postcard Kits. You can get the details HERE on Deborah's blog.

I also wanted to show you this pretty little Shadow Box Deborah created with DT leader Vicki Chrisman's Accucut Landscape Shadow Box Cards, using images from our Birds & Blossoms Scraps and Fairy Enchanting Stickers. You can see close up photos HERE on Deborah's blog.

I have more samples from some of our talented Design Team members including this wonderful card DT member Heidi Blankenship created using an image from our Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes Booklet with SpellBinders dies. You can get all the details, supplies and see more photos HERE on Heidi's blog.

As soon as I spotted this card, I knew Linda Duke had designed it when I saw the beautiful ribbon from Sharon's store, the Spellbinders die used and feminine charm and style Linda is known for! You can see the other 3 pretty cards she created using our Seasonal Friends Stamps and get all the details HERE on Linda's blog.

I love this cute retro style card DT member Michele Kovack created using one of the ladies and sentiments from our Coffee & Tea Stamp set for a Moxie Fab sketch challenge. You can get the details HERE on Michele's blog.

Look at this pretty Mothers Day card DT member Melissa Phillips created! The little Dear Mother card is off our Birds & Blossoms Creative Scraps and I love the way she placed it in the Tattered Angels chipboard frame. You can see the other beautiful cards she created HERE on Melissa's blog.

I had to show you this very fun award medal that DT member Julie Campbell designed using the little girl on the moon image from our Altered Fairy Scraps. I love the way she used the watch image from this sheet. You can see more pretty samples and get the details HERE on Julie's blog.

Lastly, I wanted to tell you about the fun challenge Pammyjo is hosting HERE over at Splitcoast to create something using our products with a 'calendar theme. She used an image from our Garden Creative Scraps and an angel sticker from our Heavenly Christmas Stickers and she got the calendar from our FREE* Calendar HERE on the right side of our Crafty Secrets home page.
You can see all the wonderful samples people have created HERE in the gallery!

I will be posting a great printable gift in honor of Mothers Day when we kick off our celebration this Monday, April 26. Come back and visit and you can see our NEW Sew Nice Creative Scraps, Material Girl Stamp set and the big surprise - double sided Creative Scraps, with wonderful images on both sides!

Deborah's artwork is elegant, beautiful and such fine details. Each piece of Deborah's work is an inspiration. Congratulations on choosing on of the most creative and talented papercrafters I've ever met. As always, I look forward to seeing more in the future.

Congrats on adding Deborah to your DT, her work is always fresh and interesting and elegant. Sounds like a match made in heaven and I'll be eagerly looking for the new "pretties".

Lovely cards. I admire people who do these, but knowing that I would never be able to duplicate them, and certainly not come up with my own designs, I will continue to be a humble recipient of their cards.
