It's Friday, and that means it's time for another Friends With Flair Friday Hop with Unity Stamps. I love Samantha Walker's Blossom Stackers set - there are tons of ways to use these stamps. Today, it was perfect for a birthday card for my sweet husband (whose birthday is tomorrow!)
Thanks for looking!

I am so thrilled that I was chosen to be on the Scrap-Mart's DT for the next year! I've always loved shopping at Scrap-mart! Not only do they seem to always get the new Spellbinders before anyone else, they also always have the best prices - not only on Spellbinders, but Sizzix, Quickutz - and every other crafty thing your heart might desire! We will be starting things off with a bang with this year's Holiday Blog Hop. It will take place Dec. 5th-10th and will begin each day on the Scrap-Mart Blog. You will see projects from the current design team as well as be introduced to next year's designers (that's where I come in ). We will be joined in the hop by these great manufacturers:
Spellbinders (guest designer featured on our blog)
Not only will you get tons of holiday inspiration, each of these amazing companies will be giving away some fabulous prizes. Boss Kut is giving away a Gazelle digital cutter...a $529 value in itself!!! Trust me, this is one hop you won't want to miss!!!
So, mark your calendars and be sure to head to the Scrap-Mart blog on Monday, December 5th!
Thanksgiving is officially behind us and Christmas-time is here! I hope you had a very blessed Thanksgiving and had time to enjoy your family and loved ones. We are all so blessed and it is so great to have a day that reminds us of that! But now, Christmas is really here - so let the carols play on the radio, let the tinsel sparkle, and let's finish all of those Christmas cards that we said we would finish in July, and we just haven't gotten them done.
I used the Christmas Fawn Die from CottageCutz for today's project. Don't you just love all of the details? I had to add a little Sakura Crystal Lacquer to her little red nose. Also, did you notice my stamped seam binding? I thought that was a perfect place to add my sentiment. The stamp came with the Boxwood Vine Wreath set - and I keep using it over and over again!
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Don't forget to check out the special Black Friday release from CottageCutz!

You have probably heard by now that Crafty Secrets is going to be phasing out of the clear stamps, and going to digital versions. So starting today, all of their stamps will be on sale, until they are all gone. Here are some of the details, taken from the Crafty Secrets blog:
The SALE on Clear Art Stamps starts this Friday in our Shopatron Store while supplies last. Maybe a company will want to license some Clear Art Stamp Sets, but for now the sale will run until the stock sells out.
Large Clear Art Stamps originally $24.99 on sale for $19.99
Medium sets reg $14.99 on sale for $12.99
Small Clear Art Stamp Sets reg $7.50 on sale for $5.99 starting Friday!
The other big news, is that the new CD - Creating with Vintage Illustrations is available today! I've made a couple of samples with the brilliant illustrations that are included on the CD. Be sure and check out the rest of the DT's blogs this week to see tons of inspiring ideas!

Crafty Secrets will soon be releasing their second CD full of Vintage Patterns. Over the next few days, I'll be sharing a couple of projects that I've made using it. I absolutely love it, and I hope you will too!
