Give away and new Crafty Secrets releases to share.

How about a little "Valentine" themed giveaway??
I gathered up a bunch of ... lovey, pink and red goodness ... and I'm giving it away to some lucky little crafter, who leaves a comment  in this post between now and next Monday (January 24th)
All you have to do is comment and you name is in the drawing!


I'm helping celebrate all the fun going on , on the Heartwarming Vintage blog  from Jan 17 to Feb2/11
You will want to check it out.. as they are revealing lots of new product!!  and it's AMAZING!

*** I started my giveaway pack with a Crafty Secrets Chipboard house, Valentine stickers and fun papers. From there I just kept adding.  As you can see... there is plenty of Valentine themed goodies.. to created many projects.    I think whoever wins will "feel the love" :)


*************************************************************

Okay... as I said ..there are lot of fun reveals and projects posted over on the Heartwarming Vintage blog..   
One of the New Releases is " Alice in Wonderland" themed Stamps and Creative Scraps..that are DARLING.  ( you can see the stamps and images on the blog)


Fun huh?  And aren't those little girls darling.  They their mommy is a friend of Crafty Secrets graphic designer Cindy. (thanks to her for letting me us them)



This flower is from Creative Impressions. * love*

Here is what I did to put this layout together.   I started with this white cardstock cut with Accucut die Ribbon Circle. 
I then randomly stamped the little tea pots and tea cups with blue and read ink to create a patterned background.

I love the open scallop ..but I felt that I really needed to add some blue to the outside edge of my layout, so I punched out 1 inch circles and added them to the backside to fill in the open space with blue.


To create the teacup in the title, I stamped the teacup onto red and blue cardstock with black ink. Adding the word "with" to the front of the red cup.  I then cut the stripe and the saucer from the blue cup and added it to the red.

I was having fun with these fun new Alice goodies and these adorable photos.. so here's another project.
This is a little sectioned box from Maya Road.



Don't you wish you could have been at their tea party?? They look like they are having so much fun.


It's been great fun... playing with all this "girly" stuff.
I didn't have many tea parties.. raising two boys! lol


Hope you enjoyed the new fun! 
Now put on a fancy hat, and have a cup of tea :)
