Before we get onto the festivities, I wanted to thank you for coming and hanging out this week! It's been fun to get to know you all better and to see you get excited about these incredible companies that I am lucky enough to work with. I hope that sharing my history about them has been fun for you. While what I do really is hard work, I love doing it and find joy in working with them all SO very much! I have found that when I feel that genuine love for those I work with, The work that I do for them is SO much better! Thanks to all those companies for such generous support! And let me tell ya, I LOVE the random number picker! I couldn't have done any of this without that awesome website!
Well, as I prepared for the party I though to myself how neat it would be to have a Grand Prize and like the past giveaway's there is NO WAY I could just give away one thing! So Here we go....
the first prize today is ANOTHER PAPER TRIMMING BUDDY!(by Marvy Uchida) With a full set of blades!!! Whoohoo!!!...... Ohhh...but I think you need some Stamps TOO! So with that will come two Images from Stamping Bella. I was able to chat with Emily several times before the Launch of her Fantastic website. She is a real sweetheart and those Bella's just rock don't they!! So, Sarah - surfs4@****** Enjoy the trimmer and Bella's!
Now, The Grand Prize...But of course included is the much awaited NEW PAPERTREY ink stamp set! Let me tell you ladies, I LOVE working with Nichole Heady's images! It makes it even sweeter that I get to work closer with Nichole and the other incredibly talented ladies on the team! I was lucky enough to get one of Nichole's swap at the SU convention a few years back and dropped her a quick email to tell her how fantastic her work was and thanked her for the many times she inspired me. She literally was the first designer that I ever knew by name because of her incredible stamping skills. It makes it even more wonderful when you get to know her and realize how fantastic she is as a person. I am extremely grateful that I was invited to join her design team!
Ok...OK, Here is the loot! :)
The Newest, unreleased Papertrey Ink Stamp set, a Paper Trimming Buddy with a set of blades, a set of Puffy Velvet Markers, a Crop-a-dile and designer snaps!!! Congrats to Cathy Arnette, these are going to come your way!
Oh but wait.... Yes, the big announcement? Yes, I almost forgot!
We ALL love Marvy Uchida's scalloped punches....right? Well, Did you ever wish we had MORE of them? Maybe a rectangle? Hmmm....sound good? I was working for them at CHA and really begged for them to come out with MORE. They currently have 6 available. I am happy to announce that staring in may.....at least 9 additional scalloped punches will be available! I am SO excited that I get to have these when they come out, BUT even more excited that they are going to send 15 scalloped punches to Lynn Brown -scrapperlynn@****** when they come in!!!
