Petaloo and Sweet Stamp Shop!

Sorry we are a bit late this morning with our post…technical difficulties on my end..sorry! We are here and ready to go!

We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY!  No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.

Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep  in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).

We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long (make sure to comment on every post here for more chances to win).

Today is our first day of school in Pennsylvania…we got a bit of a late start here due to some construction but it is always a fun day…alarms…a bit of scrambling….what to wear…pictures…pencils…

AND head over to our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house!  I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school.  We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!

Today we have Design Team Member Leica Forrest working a super cool canvas! All I gotta say today is that Leica stamped on CORK! How super cool is that?!?!?!  Like I said earlier..everyone needs a large woodgrain stamp like this one from Against the Grain from Sweet STamp  shop!

Add some Petaloo beauties and you have a gorgeous canvas perfect for any teacher’s room. Leica added a touch of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions Label paper from the Brown and Cream line for any notes or quotes you may want to add. Don’t forget to sand ;)

Gooooood Morning!

Before we get started with Day TWO of our stamping fun with Sweet Stamp Shop we want to share with you giveaway going on over at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine that Core’dinations Cardstock is sponsoring. They are celebrating 10, 000 fans over at their Facebook page so head over there and make sure you “like” them for a chance to WIN!  Make sure you tell them we sent you ;)

We are here this week with some fun projects from Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps. You know the drill…comment here on the blog ALL WEEK long AND over on our FACEBOOK PAGE for the chance to win some Core goodies!!! Make sure you check out their store for  some CUTE stamps and their blog for a chance to win, too!

AND they have this cute blinkie just for you!

Today we have some cards from Design Team Members Lydia Jackson and Debbie Standard!

We cannot get enough of this little cutie! Lydia used some May Arts ribbon and a Lifestyle Crafts die to make that awesome border. The Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain cardstock looks great with the raccoon, too!

Debbie Standard this awesome card using some Gemstones (embossed beautifully for the background) and then Debbie stamped her footballs and then embossed them, too! That is our Tuesday Tip for you….you can still stamp AND emboss with your Core!

The key is to stamp FIRST, cut it out and THEN emboss the image. It makes this football much more realistic, don’t you think?

And, I have to say, that girls DO RULE!
