Great Layout Using Artsy Banner Stamps & Update on Shop Hop Sale

Happy New Year!

Okay, this is the most posting I've ever done and I will be taking a break but I wanted to show you this wonderful surprise I found in my email box this morning. DT leader (and dear friend) Vicki Chrisman made me this gorgeous layout of Scott & I for my birthday. She designed it using our Artsy Banner Clear Art Stamp set and I LOVE it!

I begged her to explain some of the techniques she used, like the text edges and she was sweetie and it's all posted HERE on Vicki's Blog!  Plus you can see some close up photos of the stamping, how she created the flower and she even drew a little flower pattern with leaves you can use.  I love how she used the stamps, the colors, sparkle, flower - it's all perfect! 

Vicki did the layout above with a couple of photos of my honey Scott & I (for 32 yrs!) taken from a family photo shoot we did in the Fall.  This one is also one of my favorites with our 3 girls, their boyfriends and the doggies. It poured rain and we had to take them all under a canopy and we almost cancelled. I'm so glad we just did it. At least west coast weather makes it nice and green! 

Our Shop Hop Sale ended yesterday and it was an enormous success! 
I still have some emails to send with the link to the printable files (from Dec 30 & 31) but a few people said my email went to their Junk Mail Folder, so double check if you haven't received it.

PS - If you're wondering about my Bubble Blowing Game' at our party last night, the bubbles I bought at the dollar store were a failure!  I bought mini bottles and the little blowers were so small they didn't blow big or far! The 'Guess My Name' label game was still the big hit.

Thanks for the nice birthday wishes!

Watch for New Sneak Peeks Coming Soon!

I just love your blog! I saw your stamps and other products at the Creative Stitches Show in Calgary and was so impressed! I have to budget myself on this stuff so always save my monies for the show! Hope you will be there again this year!
