This week's New Image Release!!!!

This week the cards were just FANTASTICK!!! Our Design Team Princesses are AWESOME!! Please take a moment to look over their creations using our new images. Robin has 2 SUPER cute bears, one is holding a flower pot and the other is holding a heart! I chose to try something a little different and have created 3 different borders. A dog themed border with bone, biscuit and ball; a kitty themed border with yarn and mice and a star border. ENJOY!!!

Denise Lynn of Stamping with Denise used the Doggy Border and incorporated another image Doggie Stocking, for this sensational Christmas card! Love the soft fluffy stocking top!!

Erin Bailey of Scrap Stamp and be Merry used Doggy Border along with Holiday Mail to create this great Christmas card. The snowflakes are awesome on this and the glitter is PERFECT!!

Jan Jackman of Jans Cards Crafts and Musings used Doggy Border along with Emery the Pitbull Puppy for this GREAT Birthday Card! The colors are so nice and I LOVE the bone/paw print papers! Emery would LOVE this card Jan! THANKS!

Joanne of Crafting Joanne used the Beary Special Bear with Flower Pot on this wonderful pastel Happy Birthday Card! Isn't he just SO cute! Great Card with great colors, Joanne!

Tracy Jackson of Stamping Seasons used Beary Special Bears for her two cards this week. She showcased the bears with some great patterned papers and she chose to color the bears in shades of blue! Very Cute! Love the sentiments on these, shows how versatile the images can be!

Tracey Feeger of Booya Girl created a Valentine's Card this week using Beary Special Bear with Heart! Look at the wonderful rich embossing on this card! Just beautiful! Happy Birthday to your cutie patootie Tracey!! =)

What is your favorite craft medium? Definitely my Pebbles Chalks, so quick and easy!
What is your favorite scrap item/tool? Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch
What is your favorite paper line/company? None really, whatever takes my fancy – there’s so many gorgeous papers/cards
What is your favorite color(s)? Brown and Pink – Red or White (obviously!)
How do you have your scraproom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc. I have a desk on one side of our study. Our house is only 7 months old, so it’s still new and fresh, but my desk is usually pretty untidy!
Are you an animal person? Do they have a place
in your scraproom?
We have 2 black Labrador dogs, but they’re not allowed inside. They’re way too big!
What is your favorite Disney movie? Do you watch movies/tv while working? My favourite Disney movie of all time is ‘Beauty and the Beast”. I saw it at the cinema with my sister. My 3½ year old watches it now so I still get to enjoy it. A lot of the newer Disney movies are fantastic, I love ‘Cars’, it’s so cute and funny. And no, there’s no TV in my study/craft room.
Do you ever get your inpiration from tv/movies? Nature? Pets? Not so much. I think most of my inspiration comes from blog-world and magazines.
Sweet or Savory snacks? Both... mainly savoury, I love dip and biscuits!!
Scary or Romantic movies? I’m a huge chick-flick fan!! Love all those sweet endings and the cutesy parts throughout. I don’t mind watching a Scary flick either, so long as I have my pillow, the lights are on and there’s someone else sitting next to me!!
Beach or Snow vacations? We tend to holiday where we have family or friends living, and we now days go to Zoos and Family friendly tourist attractions. If I won an all-expenses-paid trip – I’d defiantly say Beach!!
Favorite type of Music? Easy listening classic rock. Favorite songs of all time, Kenny Rogers - The Gambler, Rick Springfield – Jessie’s Girl, Soft Cell – Tainted Love, Pat Brenetar – All Fired Up.... I could go on, and on, and on.....
