Decoupage drawers, Vicki’s Giveaway, School Papers, Fabulous Samples & More!

Hi Everyone,  

I have some great stuff to show you today and this Friday I will be posting a new vintage printable for Mother's Day so be sure to come back  or simply sign up on the side so you don't miss anything (like our Linky Party May 7th or the DIY Tutorials  starting soon)!

Look at these funky little drawers DT Leader Vicki Chrisman altered and turned into shelves. She decoupaged a bunch of different papers that will be on our New CD # 3, Creating With Vintage Typography and has a bunch more photos and tips HERE on her Blog. Plus Vicki has a great Giveaway to celebrate her 5th Blog-aversary you can enter! 
 We are working on the samples now to add to the CD and there is enough space to add a couple of fonts and some wonderful sentiments and poems I've collected from old vintage cards. Do you ever notice they save all the best verses for the most expensive cards? The CD #3 should be back from the manufacture in 3 weeks 

The file below shows the school theme papers that will be on CD 3 and click to see them bigger. Jill left a sweet comment on my last post when I showed some pages and also asked if we would have any school papers. Yes - and look how cool they tuned out! School Days will be a PNG you can use as a title. I sent Jill a big hug because she was so encouraging to me and said her husband passed away 8 weeks ago.  She has a young son and my heart goes out to them. I'm going to really try and not complain

Look at this adorable card Sophie created using the mouse, cake and ornate frame from our Tea With Alice stamp set, the balloons from Little Girl  and Letters for "Bon Anniversaire" are from our ABC Top Hat  Clear Art Stamp Set.
Sophie has been on a roll creating so many adorable and clever cards. Look how she stamped the little play outfit for the paper doll girl and the cat and dog all from our All Dolled up set.
She created this card for a 50th wedding anniversary and used our Cherish Stamps (except for the 50) The gold accents finished it off perfectly. You can get the details here in Sophie's gallery.

I'm in love with Vicki's new Bow Die and Marlene Bender bought a package of them in Vic's Etsy Store and made this stunning card showing an image from our Birds & Blossoms Scraps

Here are some cute photos of Otis, our little 11 yr old blind, diabetic dog looking all cute playing on a trip to the park.

Somehow he ended up with fleas (which he never gets) and Chelsea, 25, our youngest stayed here for the weekend and gave him a bath, haircut and flea collar.

Here he is as good as new and looking all spiffy. I miss him as he lives with Chelsea & Anthony now and he's their baby. I swear he looks younger since he moved in with them.

I will be back Friday with a wonderful Mother's Day Printable and a tutorial.   I should really say 'Saturday' as I so often post later in the day or night but I will try.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Isn't that Vicki a talented one? i love her work.
I am always thrilled to see what you have to share-such creative projects and wonderful products.
LOVE the picture of your fur baby getting a bath-it is precious. I bet he acts younger to you because he is active-what a blessing
Thanks for sharing and have a great week

Everything looks FABULOUS!!!!! :) LOVE the school papers! WOW!
I HAVE TO say, your little doggy reminds me of a dog we had once, Roscoe! We'd take him to get him groomed... his hair was awful & would get sooo tangled! He was QUITE FUROCIOUS when he had that hair! We'd get him groomed, & he'd look like your little dog! It was AMAZING, his attitude CHANGED! I told my husband we should have called him "SAMSON!" :)

Your poor dog -- obviously well loved, but looking a lot skinnier!
