My creative Mojo took a vacation this month; lots of family issues etc., but I was determined to get out of my funk…and new dies definitely help challenge me and kick me out of my funk. Expect to see a lot more projects posts now through the end of the month as I recapture my elusive Mojo.

Scrapbook Outlet very kindly sent me a set of bow dies to play with….and not only that, they sent me a spare set.  One of you lucky peeps can get your hands on a set of these bows, just by leaving a comment below.  I’m afraid  this is a US only  giveaway, sorry Internationals…

Leave your comment below  before Midnight March 31st Texas time and a (ONE) random winner will be picked on April 1st from all comments using widget, or similar.  You can share this with your friends from the Crafting Circle Facebook or Twitter or Google+  posts, but you must leave your comment here to be in with a chance to win.  Winner will be posted here on April 1st and you will have 48 hours from the time your name is posted to claim this, or another winner will be picked.

This is just a fun giveaway thanks to ScrapbookOutlet’s generosity…. all comments will be pending review, so please don’t worry if it doesn’t show up instantly.

STAY TUNED For a second Gina Marie Die up for grabs later this month… maybe even later this week.  If you don’t want to miss out, be sure to subscribe to the blog 🙂

ScrapbookOutlet  has a great range of dies in the Gina Marie line… I already have some of the stitched dies  that I bought last month and will be adding to my collection as and when I can.   I’m looking forward to trying my circle stitched dies out with the shaker card windows ( link for those is on the side bar for anyone interested ) to make some new game cards. This is a fab range of dies at VERY affordable prices.  Check out the gallery below for a sneakey peek at the kind of  dies you can find in the Gina Marie range.  The Gina Marie range also includes some fab rubber stamps and co-ordinating stamp & die sets

… and be sure to check out the blog of  AJ Bodine  .. this is the lady who does the  card Designs you see on the ScrapbookOutlet site… aren’t they fab.

KennyK Newsletter Contest Prize arrived

kennyK_prize I totally admit I am a bit weird… and a nerd

…. but  when I opened my mailbox and saw the packet  from KennyK,  I was like WOW … that’s cool.  I’d looked at similar packaging for my shaker windows, just in a different color.





Love the fun packaging.. and the leopard tape screams  sense of humor…  to me, if you wear leopard print you must have a great sense of humor, or a LOT of confidence …or you are just some crazy old cat lady… either way…  Loved it.


So I opened up my packet and  inside was my prize from the KennyK October Newsletter Contest.  You had to identify the scrambled image ..and I was lucky enough to be one of the first 3 to email in  my answer and win that image as a clear stamp.

Newsletter Subscribers also get early access to the monthly free image, which by the way if you haven’t seen it yet… October is Frankie Knuckles and is the October challenge image in our Monthly KennyK Digi Challenge over on the message board.  If you are a KennyK fan hop on over and join the challenge… the winner scores some free digis courtesy of ( rules apply..please check )




Anime Soccer digi stamp


I’m super excited to try this out because this is my first KennyK clear stamp, I have a tonne of the digis,but haven’t had a clear cling yet.  I probably still don’t since my son took one look at it and announced ” I LOVE THAT MOMMY !” which is a sure sign that this stamp will end up in his craft stamp bucket, not mine lol.

I’m more of a digital colorer.. so this will definitely be a challenge for me… but stay tuned ..I shall  stamp and color this and share the end results in a few days !!

Oh yeah .. almost forgot… slipped inside my packet was also a  fun temporary tattoo.  I had to laugh, because I actually have tattoos..and no ….they are not cute and girlie ones either. No roses and dolphins and tramp stamps here… sorry.  Wish Kenny had been around when I got these done almost 30 years ago *sigh..  Kenny, if you ever take up tattooing.. hook me up with some cover ups pls/ty  🙂

Can’t wait to get this stamp out and give it a shot… it will probably be the one and only time I get to use it before my son pilfers it for his collection.  He is pretty cool at sharing.. so maybe if mommy is good  he will let me use it again?
