But before we get to the previews, I want to introduce to you our VERY special guest designer this month, the one and only Sparkle Smith!!!
Sparkle and I initially met through blogland, got to know each other better while I was on her inaugural design team (lucky me!), and later met in person at CHA. We hit it off immediately, discovering our mutual love for make-and-takes (*grin*). She has the most wonderful stamp line of her own... Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps. I don't mind mentioning it because I prefer to think of us as friends than competitors. There's room enough for all of us!
In her own words: Yes...Sparkle is my real name. I'm half Hmong and half Chinese. My ethnic names translate to shiny light, hence why my American name is Sparkle. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and graduated from Oregon State University. Soon after, I moved to Denver, Colorado. In 2008, I moved back to the Pacific Northwest and am now happily living in Maple Valley, Washington with my wonderful husband, Brent.
I love to craft, make cards, scrapbook, make notebooks and journals, paint, rubber stamping, and just about anything else along those lines. I have been crafting for the last 13 years and started as a scrapbooker, though over the years I've turned into an avid cardmaker.
Now, on to the previews! To see each card/project fully, please click on the links...
And hey, I'll bet you'd like to win these stamp sets, right? :) Just leave a comment on this post by 9:00 pm Pacific tonight and I'll draw for one of you to win Happy Hoo-lidays and one of you to win The Merry Best!!! How does that sound? :) The winners will be announced in tomorrow's post.
We are also having a competition on our Facebook page. If we reach 1000 fans by November 1st, we'll give away a set of the SEVEN new stamp sets to one lucky FB fan, so please be sure to join us there and share with a friend!!!
Thanks and have a wonderful day!!! We'll see you tomorrow for more!
