Exciting News, Birds and Blooms Printable Papers, DT Samples and Show Photos

Hi Everyone,

APRIL 1/15 UPDATE:  I guess I got carried away as I was excited and didn't explain the details with the store where we will have our items for sale and consequently I've had nothing but grief since with getting across the border as the Dept of USA Immigration now feels I am moving to the USA illegally to run this store.  Lyssa, my shipper will be working at the store filling all our online orders and selling left over stock as well as the vintage items that were at the Lynden Craft and Antique Show. The store is Red Barn Jewelry and Stacia the owner has been so wonderful about having our products in her store and Lyssa will be selling Stacia's beautiful Jewelry as well. The photo below is of the store and I digitally pasted our logo to cover up the Christmas tree in the photo. We will have a Crafty Vintage Girl Sign hanging over the door with Stacia's Red Barn Jewelry Sign. I hope this will clear up the misunderstanding with the USA Immigration Dept.  As many of you already know I live and work from my home office in Canada and USA orders have always been sent from the little warehouse space I rented in Blaine, WA by Shelley (my old shipper) then for the past year by Lyssa. I have no plans to move to the USA or work in the store! 

PS - you should check out Stacia's wonderful jewelry and read the story about how she donates 15% of all her sales to help children in a village in Thailand

Orginal Post:

I'm so excited to say we are moving from my dumpy and tiny warehouse to a store in downtown Bellingham WA until the end of June and I will post all the details and photos next week after we move in!I also have a bunch of wonderful samples by our Design Team Ladies and some photos from the show we attended last week.

Here is our NEW Printable Paper Collection ' Birds and Blooms' designed by our very own DT Member Sheila Rumney!  This beautiful set includes a great mix of 24 pastel hue papers with birds and flowers and will sell for $7.95.

The papers are saved as 300 dpi jpg files and the download is divided into 2 folders.

Here's a preview of all 24 designs.

Sheila also made this sweet card in a series of sewing theme cards she created using our Sew Nice Scraps

Check out this very cool chicken card by DT Leader Kathy Clement created with our new Farm Chicks Digital Stamp Set. It includes the same designs as the past Clear Farm Chicks Set (which has sold out now) but there are 16 NEW designs added and everything is larger, so much more fun to color and play with.

How about this adorable Easter card by DT Member Michele Kovack she created using our Bunny Hop Digital Stamp Set. The pretty blue paper is from our CD #1 Creating With Vintage Patterns and I love the flower and eggs she added.

It looks like this bunny in the 'egg balloon' design attracted DT Member Shantaie Fowler as well as she used the same design and I love her bright colors and sky!

I adore this pretty set of 4 floral birthday cards DT Member Melody Clement created using our CD # 2 Creating With Vintage Illustrations. You can see the other cards and details on Melody's Blog.

 Here's a few photos from the Lynden Craft and Antique Show we sold at last week.  The booth was so packed most of the time so I forgot to get good photos before many things sold. I'm down to less that 4 trays of letterpress wood letters now from the 10 trays I had. My mom's blue Victorian planter sold for $75.00 as well as many other items. I loved the ladies who run this show Judy and Trudy. They fed us chili dogs on set up day, had live music and coffee and toast for vendors each morning!

The Lavender House had a fabulous booth and they are having a Vintage Market Show July 24-25 in Lynden, WA

As well, Up Junk Creek had a great booth as well as so many vendors who went all out.

There were a bunch of booths selling plants and funky garden art, perfect for Spring

Lastly,  I will be introducing a new DT Member next week and the next item to be added is our Hardware Digital Stamp Set which has sold out and is going to have some amazing BIG hardware added in knobs, hinges, keys and more!

Have a fantastic weekend!
