Fabulous Samples & Don't Forget to Visit Monday, Aug 23!

Hi Everyone,

I have some great samples to share with you today, plus I wanted to tell you about our Design Team Challenge this Mon, Aug 23/10 where I will be announcing a new DT Member, doing a giveaway and posting a little printable gift for you! Be sure to come back and see everything. 

For now, check out these new samples, including this fun retro birthday card that DT leader Vicki Chrisman designed for Kate who just turned 25. She used an image from our Homemade Booklet and our Sexy Little No. Stamp set and I love her rhinestone bling! Vicki is off on a family trip right now but she has friends/guest bloggers HERE on her blog. (including the talented Cat & Nat so far) and you can leave a comment Thurs, Fri or Sat to be entered to win goodies!

 I'm in love with this beautiful wall art frame that DT member Heidi Blankenship created by decorating a wood box top using our new double sided Bird & Blossom Scraps, Glimmer Mist and  You can see step by photos and get the supply details HERE on Heidi's blog.

How about this pretty card DT member Melissa Phillips designed using an image from the Bird & Blossom Creative Scraps as well. Melissa also used the sheet music stamp from our Artsy Banners set to stamp her chipboard and used the script stamp and the text one from the same set to stamp on 2 more stunning cards HERE on her blog as well as a cute Halloween card HERE. 

This is a fun 3D card DT member Julie Campbell created using an image from our new double sided Travel Creative Scraps. I love the way she cut out the bathing beauty lady and popped her up. You have to see the other great card she created with the other couple from the same Travel sheet HERE on Julie's blog.   Plus look at these Girlfriend cards HERE

Look at this cute Halloween decoration DT member Michele Kovack whipped up HERE by placing an image from our Halloween Image & Journal Notes Booklet under one of our Mini Chipboard Frames she sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I like the black glitter she added and these would also look great mounted on a card, on a black wreath, strung together or tied to a little treat bag. Here is a link to the Mini Frames but sorry the photo is gone

  1. I also want to tell you about the 'Brown Bag' challenge that Pammy-Jo is hosting over at Splitcoaststampers HERE and encourage you to join in! You can use any Crafty Secrets products and just incorporate a brown bag in some way. Check out the different samples in the Gallery HERE like the brown bag flower 'I-love-rubber' made for her lunch bag birds sample. I adore this treat bag Pammy-Jo made using our Halloween medium stamp set.

Lastly, I wanted to show you a great card Shari Morris created for one of her class projects she is teaching at 2 stores using our Greetings From Wonderland Stamp set and some of our Halloween stamps. You can see the class shedule HERE on Shari's blog for Scraptasia in Berkeley Heights, NJ and at Scrappers Cove in Milltown, NJ, plus scroll down to see her fabulous valentine card created with the bunny from our Greetings & Sentiments Clear Art Stamp set.

I planned to show you some fun photos I took on the weekend at the costume dinner party we attended but my camera will not let me download any photos, in fact I can't even view them online anymore - drat! Time for a new camera.

Don't forget to come back and see all the wonderful creations and good stuff this Monday!

Wishing you joy & creativity

Your design team is the BEST! All of the samples are beautiful, but I adore the Halloween bag the most. I am going to have to buy that stamp set.

I just love these vintage
stamps. It brings back
childhood memories. I've
used your papers, but
I don't have any stamps.
Hard to find in my area.
