Show Photos, Cool New Samples & Challenge

Hi Everyone!
I’m writing this post on our show road trip as we are headed to the Creative Stitches & Craft Show in Edmonton, Alberta. We had so much fun at the Calgary Show last Fri & Sat but I’m only posting a couple of photos from the show today as so many of our DT ladies have just finished fantastic new samples I want to show you!   I have some other really hilarious photos from our trip I will show in my next post.

Here’s a fun photo of some nice ladies shopping in our booth at the Calgary show who hammed it up for the camera with me. It was so great to hear all their wonderful comments on the samples our Design Team has created!

I takes so long to set up the booth I wish I could roll all 20’ into the van and ‘pop it up’ at the next show!

Here is a pretty new album DT leader Vicki Chrisman created using a album from Maya Road. I ordered a bunch of Maya Road Albums for our new online store (we plan to open mid October)  but we sold so many at shows I need to order more. Vicki used the Album title image as well as several of the journal card sides on our Vintage Photos Creative Scraps. You can see a bunch more photos HERE on Vicki's Blog and learn how she used our Artsy Banner Clear Art Stamp Set to embellish some of the pages such as the cover frame. 

Look at this cool flower DT member Pam Hooten created using an old tart tin she cut and colored with Copic Markers and embellished with our Halloween Creative Scraps. She made a bouquet of Halloween flowers you can see HERE on Pam's Blog and learn how she did it.

Check out this stunning 3D card DT member Michele Kovack created using our Dahlia Clear Art Stamp Set. You can get all the details HERE on Michele's Blog.

I adore this sweet little wall hanging DT member Marisa Grosson created using an image from our Little Blessings Creative Scraps. You can see the other one she made HERE on Marisa's blog

Look at the way DT member Linda Duke stamped the dress a second time and popped it up on this lovely card she created using our Bonjour Merci stamp set with a Spellbinders die.  The borders and all the floral designs on this stamp set turned out so pretty and work great to embellish with. You can see more photos and get the details HERE on Linda's blog.

DT member Julie Campbell has so many fantastic old family photos and I'm so happy she let us publish a couple of them on our Creative Scraps and she used both photos in this large tag chipboard album she created.  Her page below shows her Grandmother with a giant fake fish taken at a pier in California in 1908 and it's now on our Vintage Photos Creative Scraps. You can read the story HERE on Julie's Blog. See the other photo below.

This page below from Julie's album shows a photo of her grandmother years later with her bestfriend enjoying some homemade pie on a back porch and this photo (as well as the Keepsake of Friendship card and sentiment) are all on our Girlfriends Creative Scraps. If you missed Julies previous 'footsteps' post and her layout using our Girlfriend Scraps you can read the footsteps story HERE. She really is a great writer and I'm amazed at the collection of old family shoes she has!

Lastly, I want to tell you about a fun new 'Just Hanging Around' challenge that Marcy Talbert is hosting over at Splitcoast Stampers to create any hanging project using our products. I love all the inspiring ideas she listed like Christmas ornaments, Halloween decorations, altered letters, shadow boxes, framed art, Victorian cones, banners, mobiles,  pendant necklaces, gift tags, or a card with a hanging element. You can get details HERE and see the Gallery HERE!

Look at this wonderful Autumn wall hanging Marcy created using an image from our Seasonal Booklet and a blank postcard from one of our Postcard Kits.

PS - If you missed my last post with the free printable Halloween image and our DT Halloween Challenge it's HERE.

That's all until next time.
Wishing you joy & creativity
