May Linky Challenge Winner and delightful DT Samples

Hello, Friends!
I'm trusting that you are all doing well and enjoying this beautiful spring weather we've been having.  It just makes you feel alive, doesn't it?  I have some delightful DT samples to share with you today, but first, I have the announcement for the winner of our May Linky Challenge.

We had 8 guests join the party this month, and when I asked my dear husband to pick a number between 1 and 8, he chose #5, Heather from The Paper Toile. Heather created a gorgeous tag using the pink floral wood grain print from our Birds and Blooms Digital Paper Kit and a beautiful stamp from our Flower Garden Stamp set.  I love how soft and feminine this tag is!


Congrats, Heather!  Sandy will be contacting you with the information you need to collect your prize! Our next Linky Party Challenge will be held on June 1st, and will be a masculine theme, so get your creative wheels turning!

Our design team has had a busy month.  I don't know what it is about the month of May, but life seems to go on fast forward from now til the end of the year.  Still, the team has put together some amazing samples that I can't wait to share with you!

If you're intrigued by the idea of digital scrapbooking, you really need to check out Sheila Rumney's amazing layout!  Sheila used our new Birds and Blooms Digital Paper Kit and our Sew Decorative CD to create this fantastic page that looks dimensional, even though it is all digital.  It's a great way to capture a memory without spending a fortune, or taking up a lot of space in your home.

Ginny Nemchak made a darling wall hanging for Mother's Day using our Little Blessings Creative Scraps, heart shaped ivory chipboard and elements from our Vintage Typography CD. You can read all the details on Ginny's blog, Polly's Paper Studio.

Our Birds and Blooms Digital Paper Kit contains some of the prettiest papers we've ever made.  Diane Hover used the green diamond water color paper to make this lovely card.  I just love the little painted house she added!  You can read all the details on her blog, Nellie's Nest.

Melody created such a great vintage card with our Sew Decorative CD.  I love the stitching she added, and the vintage buttons are so chic!  You can check out all the details HERE

Our Digital Flowers Printable Sheet is perfect for springtime crafting.  Darlene used them along with our Birds and Blooms Digital paper kit to make this sweet card.  I love the way the hand made flowers match the flowers in the print, don't you? Dar has all the details on her blog, Dar's Crafty Creations. 

Dar combined another of these pretty flower prints with our Digital Mini Vintage Scraps to make this beautiful card. You can find the details for this card HERE. 

Teresa has been a busy bee, and created this gorgeous Friendship themed card using our Words from the Heart booklets and our Pastel papers. I love the way the sentiment from the booklet has been framed with those beautiful die cuts, flowers and butterfly! You can get the details HERE. 

I was already missing the beach, but when I saw Teresa's tag made with our  Summertime Vintage Images Booklet, I got even more homesick for it! .  The stenciling adds such a fun element to this project.  You can read all about it on Teresa's blog, Victorian Paper Queen. 

If you haven't visited our online store lately, you are missing out on some great new products and some fabulous sales!  I hope you'll pop by and take a look to see what's new, and take advantage of those great deals!

Memorial Day is this weekend in the US, and I hope you all have a safe, happy and wonderful time with your families and friends. We'll probably fire up the grill and enjoy some time with our family.  Until next time, on behalf of Sandy Redburn, I wish you joy and creativity!
