New Adorable Bedtime Kids, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Kitchen Ideas

Hi Everyone,

Our Bedtime Kids Digital Stamp Set turned out so adorable and it grew to 55 stamps!
We also have a random Facebook Winner for our Vintage Santa Set Giveaway. Congratulations to Wanda Contreras Pagan!  I have a variety of samples and a link to a great article on doilies and the God Only Knows video if you haven't seen it.

There is something about the ritual of bedtime from children washing up, reading bedtime stories together and tucking the sleepy heads in that brings back so many happy memories of when my girls were little.  I'm so happy with the way this set turned out from all the adorable children to the fun and sentimental sayings,  the cute lambs and singing bed bug on page 2.  Nice faces can make or break a stamp so many of the faces were changed, some heads were replaced and 2 of the little girls became little boys (the second and third boy in row 2). The kids in the plain style pj's are perfect for re-printing on pattern papers to cut out cute pajamas.

 There are babies, little boys and girls in a variety of pajama attire standing up and in beds, plus 3 tickets, 2 moons, stars, a teddy bear, tooth fairy note, a 'tooth holder label', toothbrush and toothpaste, 5 x 5" sheet music of the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star song and a 2" x 12" starry border. There are 3 different styles of Pajama Party Invitations and several large illustrations over 5", including children's beds, a bedroom, a fairy dream and a bedtime book cover. I'm going to enlarge some of the kids, glue them to card stock and make paper dolls for my niece and nephew to color. 

DT Leader Kathy Clement posted all the details on both of the pretty Christmas cards she made using our Vintage Santa Stamp Set and Christmas CD. I adore how she popped these stockings

 It's almost Thanksgiving in the USA so I've added our Free Autumn Greetings Printable if you missed it.

DT Member Melody Clement sweet Thanksgiving card was created using paper and stamps from our Thanksgiving Download and I love her idea to use her  Silhouette machine to cut out the stamps she used - even those corners.  Melody also has a great Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial with 24 little envelopes and she used her machine to cut out all the numbers.

 Here are more previous Thanksgiving ideas created using the same kit and look how Vicki Chrisman made a menu card and place settings

Melody also made this cute cherry card using our Retro Kitchen Kit and added the white doily digitally over the cherry paper and popped up some of the images 3D.

  The 3 doilies in both Kitchen Kits turned out so much cooler than I expected - they look so 3D and they were made from black and white drawings I sent Cindy, my graphics guru who added to textured paper. The beige are in the Kitchen Memories Kit and 3 white doilies are in the Retro Kitchen Kit. On a side note, I love doilies all all the great old patterns always wondered which was the correct way to spell doily as I've seen it spelled differently in old pattern books and I found this great Doily article from textile historian Leimomi at the Dreamstress.

 Have you seen the amazing music video on Facebook of God Only Knows? It's really great!

To all of you living in the USA - have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Wishing you joy and creativity
