Winner, Thinking of You to Christmas Samples and More!

I have so many things to share today! We have a winner for the last blog post with a 158 entries and it was # 153, Paula Clare. Thanks so much to everyone for your all your great ideas and feedback on the CD's! Your wishes confirmed we are on the right track! 

Here are the 3 new Clear Art Stamp Sets Paula won (Down on the Farm, Christmas Mail, and Little St. Nick) but she can switch them out for any same size sets if she likes. She will also get a copy of our first CD as soon as it's available (by Dec).

Look at this adorable ATC card DT member Pam Hooten just created using our new little Christmas Mail stamp set.  I love the way she used several of the stamps, added a scallop glitter roof, stitched on white paper to create 'snow banks' and the string with the stamped label gives a tied gift effect. You can see more details HERE on Pam's blog.

Here is our first Down on the Farm samples designed by DT member Marisa Grosson and I was so excited to see how well the stamps worked to build a scene. I'm sad to say Marisa is leaving our DT. She has created so many amazing samples over the last few years (see her blog and our Gallery) but her busy schedule isn't  leaving her much time to create. The good news is she is still going to send me samples when she has time - like this cute card! 

Look at this pretty layout our DT Guest Sheila Rumney created with a photo of her Grandmother and her. I love the soft pastel colors she choose and the way she paired them with our Birds & Blossoms Creative Scraps.   Details HERE on Sheila's blog. 

Marcy Talbert is hosting a fun 'Thinking of You, Make it Two' challenge over at Splitcoast this week in support of the Hope You Can Cling To Campaign we are sponsoring. The idea is to create 2 cards and send 1 to offer support to ladies fighting breast cancer. You can get details HERE from Marcy and see the Gallery HERE.  Look at the 2 sweet cards Marcy designed!

Look at these pretty 'pink ribbon cards. This one is by DT member Michele Kovack created using ladies from our Girlfriend Image Booklet and you can get the details HERE on Michele's blog. You can see more photos for the Pink Ribbon Challenge HERE that Pammy Jo hosted last week. Pammy was diagnosed 6 years ago and recently celebrated 6 years cancer free!

Here is another cute pink ribbon card DT leader Vicki Chrisman created with a matching teddy bear using Artsy Banners and Lucky Wishes stamp sets.  I'm not sure why Michele's or Vicki's cards don't show in the gallery but I'm guessing they didn't add the code that is assigned to each challenge? Details HERE on Vicki's blog.

DT member Flo from France designed this fantastic little album with a friendship theme using a mix of our Clear Art Stamps  (on our new website under construction) and Creative Scraps, an Embellish Scrap Album, Making Memories papers and Prima flowers. You can see 15 photos with all the wonderful details HERE on Flo's blog and there is a translator box on the right side.

Look at this cute Halloween card DT member Julie Campbell made using the Bingo card and little witch from our Halloween Creative Scraps! You can get the details and see some Halloween fun decor ideas (I love the photo of her aunt with the little mask) and save the yummy bread recipe HERE on Julie's blog.  

Julie also created this vintage Christmas wall hanging using images from our Christmas Creative Scraps, Graphic 45 paper and one of the chipboard album pages from our Rectangle Album. We recently had these re-cut and need to add them to the Shopatron store as this was the best selling album. More details HERE on Julie's blog.

Lastly, I just spotted this adorable card HERE on DT member Melissa Phillips blog and had to share it with you. Melissa loves our Altered Fairy Scraps and I think it's the cute children but there are so many creative possibilities with this 1 sheet of Scraps, especially now that they are double sided!  But... the single sided Fairy Scraps are still on sale while supplies last HERE and are a great deal.

All of our products are available wholesale to stores, so please tell your favorite retailer if you would like to see Crafty Secrets in their store.  We are in 22 countries now but we get regular emails from people around the world trying to find our products. I guess it's a big world! If you can't find a retailer call or email us and we will try and help you.

Wishing you joy & creativity!
