Project of the Week Winner - Penguin Challenge

I guess I am a little behind with this. The summer is flying by so fast. School has started for some already. Blink and the summer will be over {sigh}. I really enjoyed looking at the "cool" penguin projects that you linked up to our challenge. Thanks for playing along and sharing your creations. I chose Nita's adorable card as the project of the week.  I loved the penguins on the outside and the inside, the colors, and the embossing. Great job Nita and congratulations!  I will e-mail your blinkie to you! --Melissa

The Stamping Boutique....Happy Hauntings challenge

Good morning everyone! This is Heather and I'm so happy to announce that we are working with an additional sponsor this month...The Stamping Boutique. Here's a little bit about them:

Tracey Malnofski's resume reads like a whose who of the Stamping Industry. Besides being the owner and a designer for The Stamping Boutique, she's also a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Company and has also worked for InStyle Stamps, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack. She's a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in her community.Tracey has quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but she loves them all. Her "Boutique" has it all - fairytale, whimsy, sentimental . . . and Candy!

Here's what Tracey says about her Stamping Boutique.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

Monthly Challenge:

I asked the designers to use any frame from Happy Hauntings and they got to pick a fall image from The Stamping Boutique. I love what they have come up with and I'm sure you will, too.

Look for a new contest coming up this week for a chance to win some Stamping Boutique stamps.

A new contest - {ippity} stamps

Hello everyone! This is Heather and I have a fun announcement to make!!

Heather Flaherty from {ippity} stamps is hosting us this week!! If you're not familiar with {ippity} stamps, here is some information on them:

{ippity} Stamps is a new line of stamps created by Unity Stamp Company that is only sold through individuals such as myself – we are called {ippity} Chicks! I have been an {ippity} Chick since March of 2010.

The stamps are high quality, deeply etched red rubber mounted on cling foam. They can be used with any acrylic stamping block or with the {ippity} stamping block available for purchase.

On my Blog you can view the full line of {ippity} stamps via Catalog, you can also check what the DT has been up to with the New Releases!

Sooo, this is what we're going to do. We're going to have a little contest that will run for one week. At the end of the week, we'll choose a winner and Heather will send the winner this stamp set:

All you need to do is make a creation with your Cricut. BUT, you also have to use a stamp somewhere on your project. Link us up using Linky below. Don't have to use a stamp. This doesn't sound much like a challenge....hmmmm...I have to ALSO use the color RED in your project.

So, that's it. Make us a project using your Cricut, a stamp and have the color red somewhere. Link us up using Linky below. You have one week. We'll pick a winner over the next weekend.

Please submit only new projects for this contest.

Get to work!! :)
