LDRS Happy Mail – $1 Clearance Rubber Stamp deals

Now lets me just say.. not ALL of these LDRS Creative stamps were $1 clearance stamps before anyone goes to look for one and finds it is full price.  I did pick up a few full prices ones using the 25% Kit & Clowder Group discount which was running last weekend… but most all of these were $1 clearance stamps.  There are some still left.. so if you love a great deal.. you should definitely check out what they still have before it’s all gone. I originally ordered two of the London stamps with the intention of gifting one of them to someone, but alas they were out of stock so only sent one and a refund was issued..sorry .. I’m keeping that one lol.

I’m one of those who really likes to see stamps physically before buying, but these were such a great deal..it was worth a shot.  I loved these so much when they arrived..I ordered 11 more lol. They are mostly unmounted, but  the two Dove Art Studio stamps are mounted and what I thought was really cool… the mount has the image on it too so you can see it through the Acrylic blocks  🙂

The unmounted ones I just popped some Zig 2 way glue on.

Doodle Dragon Studios – Awesome Deal on 2011 digi set

If you are new to this Artist like I am…. you  will kick yourself if you don’t check this out.  I found this site last week when I was doing my usual Freebie Friday Post and poking around looking for new artists…and I was impressed, so I  grabbed the cute little Freebie Giraffe and set that as our Creative Coloring Challenge Image for November.  This challenge is to introduce new artists to the members on the message board who they may not have run across before.

So…. I went back again tonight to look at a couple of super cute dragon digis I spotted last week…and found this deal.  Hell yeah I hooked myself up…. do you even need to ask.  I’m not the only one…. One of our girls came to get the freebie for the challenge and ended up buying more digis too.  The art is cute….what can I say.  I’ll be honest it’s the dragons for me….I have been looking for cool dragons for ages to use with my son who is 3 and a half and loves to craft with mommy.

Blog Deal #2, Access to all 2011 monthly membership for a VERY limited price. Once you order you will receive a download containing a text file with the user ID and password, IF you don’t receive the download in an email all of your orders are kept in your order history by logging in on my site…

All 480 images included in this deal are located here:

That is a crazy good deal for digis…if I had had the spare money I woulda hooked myself up with the 3 year/3000 images for  $100 offer on there.

I have a feeling we will be seeing more of this artist in our message board challenges and on the blog projects.  Too cute, great, great prices.  Digis start at $1 .. so  go check it out 🙂








These panels are just a handful of the really great digis in this set.  It’s a limited time offer..so if you wan’t it.. grab it while you can.

If you would be so kind as to mention Crafting Circle in your comments if you make a purchase… that would be awesome.
