11.24

Hello Friends
I have a really fun week planned for you all.

FIRST...

We are participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags promo along with my friend Tracey and a bunch of other amazing stamp companies. (there are prizes to be won, just sayin')

THIS is the main blog where you will find a TON of inspiration along with a giveaway.
I created a Christmas tag that is super simple!  I just die cut the poinsettia, and stamped the sentiment onto our large stitched tag die.  I topped it off with some lace, twine and a button in the center of my flower.  I pinched the leaves and bent the flower petals to add interest.

There is a giveaway opportunity...so make sure you check out the main blog.  Some of our designers created tags and you will have EXTRA chances to win a prize if you visit them and comment on their blogs as well.

SECOND...

I created SIX new Christmas cards to help get you excited about the fabulous "card giving" season.  My cards are all flat for easy mailing and easy enough for mass-producing.  I will share a new card each day through Saturday.
Here is Christmas card no. 1

I stamped Santa off the edge of my white cardstock and colored him with a Copic marker.  I stamped the word bubble and sentiment and matted onto cardstock.


THIRD...

Enjoy our regularly scheduled post, featuring our talented designers.



I am crazy-in-love with this card!!
Michele used the branch for a coat rack - eeeeeek 
The patterned hats are awesome...the super cute hamster is my fav though :)




Polka dot snowflakes - LOVE 'em!!
This card has a retro and modern feel to it.
This is a FABULOUS Christmas card to mass produce :)  (you could use the same design and change up the papers as you like)

FOURTH...

Our PS DT blog hop will be on Friday this month (on Nov 28)...we pushed it back a day because of Thanksgiving.  Our December release will be a large release and not a mini one. (January will have a mini release - 1 stamp set and 4 dies)

February - 4 stamps and 8 dies (our Anniversary month - we turn FOUR)
March - 1 stamp and 4-5 dies
April - 4 stamps and 8 dies
May - 1 stamp and 4-5 dies
...etc
A pair of soft drinks were sold in Singapore called Anything and Whatever. While each offered six flavors, the cans were identical, so you didn’t know what flavor you were going to get.
