Texas Show a Success, Vacation Time, Links & New Stamp Set!

Hi Everyone,

We are all packed up and back at the hotel after doing the Great American Scrapbook Show in Arlington, TX and it was a GREAT Show! Both of our classes were sold out and went really well - thanks to our fabulous teacher Vicki Chrisman and her wonderful helpers DT Member Pam Hooten and Bev Gerard AKA: TexasGrandma. We leave tomorrow for a couple of days in AZ and then will drive down to Mexico to see my husband Scott & Vicki's Fav band Roger Cline & the Peacemakers in Rocky Point. Vicki likes Roger so much she made him into a tiny traveling mascot (see him between us in the photo on a stick).

This show is always so much fun as we always meet so many great new people and saw lots of really nice customers from previous years. Here is a photo of the front of the booth.

Here is Vicki at our make&take table. People had a chance to create Domestic Goddess Tags, an altered Fairy Card or Vintage Postcard and great fun was had by all!

I took this photo of our little girlfriends theme display before the show opened

Here is DT Member Pam Hooten taking a turn running our little make & take table

I took this photo of my hubby Scott & Kyle (owner of Tattered Angels) who came by to visit when there was a lull this afternoon. People thought the attendance seemed to be a bit lower this year) but we had our busiest show ever and had so many people say ours was one of their favorite booths and that felt wonderful! I think it's because of all the fantastic samples we display

Oh my, I just spotted this beautiful calendar DT Member Melissa Phillips designed with our new double sided Calendar Scraps you can see it HERE on her blog!. Some stores may still have the single sided ones which won't have these big images, so double check before you buy, but they are shipping to stores now.
You also have to check out all the fabulous samples people have submitted for Lori Lynn Washburn's challenge over at Splitcoast to incorporate 'kraft paper' with any Crafty Secrets products. Here are the details from Lori if you would like to join in and HERE is the Gallery!

This is a new stamp set that is available now for stores to order and in our Shopatron store called Bonjour Merci! I love the lettering styles and all the branches, birdies, the 2 borders and various pieces you can use to decorate projects! I will show you all samples soon

Also, go see all the great new samples posted in our Online Gallery HERE, including new samples by DT member Deborah March
I had to share this cute ad Cindy our graphic designer just finished for Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine. It's just a tiny little ad but I like how it turned out

Okay, it's way past bedtime, so until next time...
wishing you much joy & creativity!

I so enjoyed your booth this year! I wish I had a duplicate right in my scraproom to be able to look at all of the great sample work and get inspired. Love the Wonderland Stamps, even if they were sold out - I will have to get some online soon!!! Thanks for coming to Texas - and you and your hubby were extra sweet to my two little ones. They have used their stickers already!

I cannot wait for the "stuff" to get back from the printer. double sided Halloween-it doesn't get any better.

Your booth is always so BEAUTIFUL... and the CS goodies encourage us to
"need-it-all..." no wonder it's always so busy! SO glad you were so busy!!

I would have loved to have been able to see the Texas show. But, Texas is too far for me to travel. Any chance you will go to Nashville or Altanta in the future for a show??? You always have such great ideas here--I love getting emails from you!! The new double-sides look great!!

Everything you have is just so nice and high quality!! Thank you!!
