Spotlight, Give Away, July News... Happy Canada Day!!!

Hello Everyone! HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!

Lots to mention today including a Spotlight over at the Paper Crafter's Library, 2 Give Aways, the June Customer Creation Challenge Winner and July Sales... Here goes!

Paper Crafter's Library Spotlight

 

The wonderful people over at the Paper Crafter's Library have put together a lovely Spotlight for me. So thankful and proud to be up there!

If you haven't come across them online yet I highly suggest visiting. Lots of beautiful projects, new companies, video tutorials and inspiration of all kinds.

Here's a link: http://blog.papercrafterslibrary.com

A Photo Tutorial

To celebrate today's spotlight I wanted to do something special. I sat down at my art table and ended up with two cards and a photo tutorial. Outside it was a sunny summer day which definitely influenced the theme. I combined my Hibiscus and Raindrop stamps and this is the result... Summer rain...

The full photo tutorial and material list for these cards is on the Paper Crafter's Library blog HERE.

 

Give Away 

 

I'm also offering a Give Away both on the Paper Crafter's Library blog and on mine. Please feel free to participate in both! I am offering my Hibiscus unmounted stamp sheet on their blog (see below). Please visit them to qualify for this prize. Details on their blog HERE.
On my blog I am giving away the matching Hibiscus stencil below. To qualify, simply leave me a comment on this post. Please let me know if you found me through the Paper Crafter's Library. I'll randomly draw a winner and announce in a week's time (Wednesday).

  35. What a beautiful design.
    Like others, I found you through your design team member, Eileen - saw something she'd done with the water droplets, which looked so realistic I could scarcely believe they were from a stamp! Your video tutorial on using the water droplet stamp is so helpful, thank you.

Very nice art pieces! :)
