Christmas Image Deal, Sexy Numbers and Retro Christmas Digital, Congrats and Doily Table Runners!

 Hi Everyone,   I have a great deal - I just wish I had discovered this case of images in our USA warehouse earlier.  We found a bunch of Christmas Postcard Images - but we are sold out of the mini stamp set and chipboard that went with it.   Named Christmas Images Bundle, the package will include 3 of each of the 6 large designs (18 total in 5.5 x 3.5" size) and 36 of the small shapes (on 12 sheets total) for $2.50 - or FREE with any order over $15.00 until Jan 1, 2014.

See sample ideas and details below. You could create a great garland, ornaments and worth stashing for next year!

 I added our Retro Christmas Digital Download to our store yesterday but didn't have time to do the blog post.  You can print these on 8.5 x 11" paper or card stock over and over and crop and re-size them to make little charms or enlarge them.  Adorable and only $1.95.

Here's a set of 3 lovely cards Vicki made previously using paper from our CD 1, Creating With Vintage Patterns.

 Sexy Numbers has also been turned into a Digital Stamp Set Download but there are a few Clear Sets left

Here's a idea sheet with past samples. I'm sure our Design Team ladies will play with the digital set as everything is larger and more fun to color! The numbers are 2" high at 300 dpi and 3" high at 200 dpi which will still print fine.

 I noticed it was DT Member Michele Kovack 300th CraftySecrets post when I saw this sweet card she created with our Winter Wishes Digital Stamp Set!   Thanks Michele for showing off our digital stamps so well and showing you can use them with Copic Markers and make beautiful cards!  

 You can see details on Michele's blog and read her wonderful reminder to stop and count your blessings - even when life feels hectic like this time of year! See the full 300 sample Crafty Secrets Gallery. Whew - that's a lot of samples, Vicki must be the only one to beat that.

I also love this Snow Globes card Michele made last year and how she frosted it

Here's another one I spotted that she made with our Snow Globes set, now a Digital Set

I spotted this cool Snow Globe card by Marie-Alice at Splitcoast and love how she created the design!

These 3 little kids off our Winter Wishes set are one of my favorite designs and Marie-Alice made this card last year but I wanted to show it because I love the pretty pastel colors she did their jackets in and non-Christmas paper used but it all works beautifully. You can see the Splitcoast Crafty Secrets Gallery

We had one of our designs make the front cover of the Country Register Newspaper in the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Edition.  The  Country Register newspapers can be found throughout the USA and Canada in a network of independently owned and published specialty bi-monthly free newspapers for the consumer who enjoys unique gift stores including country, garden, antiques, craft and sewing shops. You can discover bed and breakfast places, tea rooms, local calendar events and classes. They also have articles and recipes.

Many of you have die cutting equipment and if you're making your own Christmas tags I wanted to show you these gift tags past DT member Marisa Grosson cut using her Spellbinders Scallop Nestabilities with images from our Christmas Booklet.

I also love this idea Vicki Chrisman did previously on how to turn a non-Christmas design into the holiday spirit just by the colors of paper you use and how she paper pieced these little outfits and turned them into Christmas fairies.  Our Born to Fly is now a Digital Stamp Set so you can easily print the fairy girls on light paper for their bodies and on colored paper and cut out the outfits.

Lastly,  I wanted to share this table runner idea that Country Living Magazine originally showed with their Decorate with Doilies post and it inspired a bunch of great doily table runners!  

Drat - I just sold a bunch of doilies at our last show but they always have great prices at our little thrift store.  Here's the links: 1. AshleyAnnPhotography  2. Michelle at VintageJunky  3. Pam Garrison 4. Tammy from GirlsWearBlue

 What do you think, do you like them or are they too fussy?

Thanks so much for your support and feedback, it's truly appreciated!

So excited to see the Retro Christmas
sheet going digital. I love the red and turquoise backgrounds...what a great color combo!

Glad to see you found more Christmas image packs. The Santa with the navy background is my all time favorite image. Thank you for including so many great samples!

That Vicki is such a talented lady. I love the cards she made with the digi set. I purchased the Snowglobe set and I love it. Merry Christmas to all who make Crafty Secrets a wonderful experience.
