Starts today! The giveaway will have the 8x8 frame , the papers you see (plus a few you cant) lol buttons, bells, hanging glitter stars, three wooden spools wrapped with ribbon and rick rack, and the chipboard letters, "joy". .........so "someone" will get to make something "Christmasy"
All you have to do it comment in this post between between now and Friday.
I'll draw on Friday...and anounce the winner..so check back then.

Page Frame gallery
(check out some of the cool things the girls are doing with the frames and shapes for the holidays) I'm always amazed at the creativity!


Today is also the release of the four new sets of Clear Art Stamps from Crafty Secrets. They are FANTASTIC.... check them out here Heartwarming Vintage Blog
*******************************************************************
I made this Altered Domino Album with the NEW "Mini Memories" Stamp Set.




I found these wooden dominos at the $ store. I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist first. After letting them dry, I used my"Top Boss" Embossing pad and "Top Boss" Copper Embossing Powder from Clearsnap on some of the dominos and covered some with vintage photos.



I sandwich the dominos together with ribbon inbetween ( using Diamond Glaze).




I love this flourish that is part of the set. It's so versitle and makes a great background.
I ran my domino edges accross my embossing pad and then embossed them also, for a finished smooth edge.



Check out the Crafty Secrets Gallery and see the beautiful things the girls have done with these stamps and the others. There is a card in there, that Anna Wight just posted, that cracked me up!!! It is done using the Mini Cooking set, and it says . "We Wisk you a Merry Christmas" lol
You can check it out here.
Hope you are all haveing a great start to your week!!
