My New Niece & My Purple Hair

Hi Everyone,

Please join our WEEK LONG CELEBRATION for National Scrapbook Day April 26 to May 1st ! We will have some great prize giveaways, really cool samples and each day will include something inspiring and FUN! Our Design Team Challenge will be on Sat April 26

Yippee - look at our brand new stamp set called Car Classics which will be available to order in 2 weeks or less! It has 25 separate stamps and I’m thrilled with the way this set turned out as it has so many cool images you can mix & match with the words and sentiments! I hope it gets larger when you click it on. To give you an idea of sizes, the large sports car and map are 2.5" long and the roadster is 3" The small cars are about 1". I love the way our graphic designer, Cindy van Koll, added a arrow and 'at' so you can stamp Still Crusin' at with the arrow pointing to a number (year). Also love the garage guys, flags, cup and King of the Road emblem!

Look at this adorable fairy banner DT leader Vicki Chrisman created using our Altered Fairy Scraps! You can see close ups and get the details HERE on Vicki's Blog.

Michelle Kovack used our Message in a Bottle Stamp set to create this fabulous card and I can't get over how cool the bottle looks all 3D with the sparkly top! You can get the details HERE on Michele's Blog.

DT member Pam Hooten designed this pretty card using our new Mermaid Clear Art Stamp Set. I adore the colors and her scallop sun circle! You can see more and get the details HERE on Pam's Blog.

This totally sweet card was designed by DT member Julie Campbell using an image from our Homemade Booklet with polka dot paper from our Radiant Paper Pad and the mix of everything is yummy! Julie has several samples HERE on her blog if you scroll down.

We are setting up today at the Abbotsford Tradex Show in BC and will be there this Sat & Sun with make-n-takes and TONS of products and samples! Come see us and get a free gift with any purchase over $10.00
Here are a few photos from the Heirloom Stamp Show in Portland we attended last month. I love doing this show and enjoyed meeting so many regular and new people again!

My husband Scott came and helped and he swears the hardest part is putting up all the samples. It's just not a guy thing LOL! I bring so many it takes hours but everyone loves seeing all the fabulous samples our talented Design Team ladies create. We have extra help this weekend in Abbotsford, thank goodness!

Below is Laura , who came and helped both days at the show and taught our Vintage Postcard Make-n-Take. It was the first time we met and she was wonderful! I hope she can help next year.

Darlene Pavlick is hosting this weeks challenge over at Splitcoast to use one of the first sketch layout challenges and you can read the details HERE and see the Gallery HERE. It free and fun to join in, you just need to use a Crafty Secrets product somehow in your design.

LoriLynn Washburn hosted the challenge the week before to 'Show & Tell' about your favorite sample you have created using our products and there are so many wonderful samples HERE you can check out! Look at this very cute card she made with our Bug's Life Clear Art Stamp Set

I had to share a photo of me holding my new tiny niece Arissa, who is so adorable! She looks like a little angel and my brother and his wife are such happy and proud parents of a son & daughter now.

Lastly, we attended a rock star costume party last weekend and we all wore wigs. I tried to be Cher but it just didn't work! My oldest, Katie 27, was Courtney Love in the middle wearing a blonde bob wig and my youngest, Chelsea 23 is in the short dark wig and she looked the most different as she has really long blonde hair. We got our wigs for $11.99 each and I thought the girls wigs looked pretty real. I decided purple was a bad idea!
