Great New Samples, Mixed Media Art & Coupon for Portland CK Show

Hi Everyone,   *** We still haven't been able to contact winners DT Hop Winners Gretchen Wilson (from Starla Nelson's Blog), Danielle Therese Greenwood (winner from our blog). They can each pick any Medium Stamp set and any 2 sheets of Creative Scraps and email us their address.

Look at this adorable card our March DT Guest Tammy Roberts created using an image from our Sew Nice Creative Scraps and Sew Special Clear Art Stamp Set. Love how she stamped the scissors and cut them out and stamped the safety pin. The sentiment is from our Couple of Cuties set.

Tammy used one of the sentiments and the pincushion from the Sew Special set to stamp on felt to create this cool little real pincushion. The pretty stick pins, flowers, lace, charm and little zipper head she stitched on make this 'sew special'!

Everyone loves using this image from our Love Mail Scraps and I know it's because Cindy van Koll, our graphic designer did such a fantastic job of building it! I've wanted to use this expression for ages but I needed the perfect birdies, nest and font and Cindy put them together so perfectly in this frame it makes it easy to create a beautiful sample like this one Tammy did. Wouldn't this make a wonderful mini book cover for a journal?

Here's one more that Tammy did using the Love Scraps and stamps are from our Artsy Banner set. I'm not sure if she used a blank postcard from our Postcard kits or the new larger Spellbinders die?

Now that Spring has arrived I think I will post a bunch of Easter and Spring theme samples over the next couple of weeks. Please tell me if there is anything else you would like to see or challenges you would like our DT ladies to try in future?

Look at this pretty card DT Member Julie Campbell created using the chicks from our Seasonal Calendar Scraps. You can see more photos and  another lovely card HERE on Julie's Blog.

Angie, the owner of Scrapscene took some art classes with Christy Tomlinson and Emily Falconbridge on the weekend and created some fabulous mixed media art. She posted it all HERE on Scrapscene yesterday with links and said she loved using our Artsy Banner Clear Art Stamp set to embellish with! You can see the script stamp across the dress, Text, No., and the mini scallop border on her page.

If you live in the Portland area we would love to see you at the Creating Keepsakes Show this weekend and I have a $3.00 off coupon you can print. We also have free gifts with a first purchase over $15.00, lots of samples by our talented DT ladies and a Flea Market table! If you are reading this and you want to help us set up tomorrow for free product or cash - please call our cell 604 617-3055 or office 1-888 597-8898.  My husband Scott does not love set up and I want it to be as painless as possible!

Wishing you joy & creativity
