    Hearts and Flowers (and a FREE Kit!)

    Filed under Back in Stock, Contests/Winners, Design Team, Featured Artwork, Giveaways, Newsletters, Sale

    How about some color to sweep those Winter blues away? We’ve got lots of pink (and red) in all of today’s photos; from Design Team Member Shannon Tuttle’s Lady of the Garden to a Hearts & Flowers Gift Kit to today’s Hearts and Roses Giveaway!

    Shannon’s Lady of the Garden has a lovely mix of flora and fauna that her lady cares for. I particularly like using the mushrooms and stamen in a boquet (at the top of her netting bustle).

    And I also like Shannon’s tip about running a rough-cut collage sheet image through her Xyron Machine before backing with other paper (and before carefully trimming the edges — so you’ll trim the back of your tag or silhouette at the same time. More info is on Shannon’s blog post.

    Wait! Back up… did you say FREE kit? Why, yes, I did! An exclusive Alpha Stamps’ Hearts & Flowers Gift Kit of (mainly) pink papers, shiny beads & a brass heart charm — in time for Valentine’s Day projects (and/or to cheer you up in the midst of Winter). This mini kit is FREE for all orders over $20! More info (and more photos) on the Hearts & Flowers Gift Kit page.

    Mixed Color Roses Dresden ScrapsHey, and while we’re on the subject of roses, there are 3 New Dresden Scrap Sheets (and one of them, the Mixed Color Roses Dresden Scraps shown at left, is also in today’s Giveaway) and I’ve just put ALL of the Dresden Scraps On Sale!

    (Psst! ALL of the Valentine Collage Sheets, Cherubs/Hearts Rubber Stamps and Scrapbook Papers are On Sale! See the Sale Section for more info.)
