Blog Hop InStyle!

Thanks for stopping by on your last leg of the blog hop tour. You should have come from Jan If not, please either go back there or start from the beginning...CLICK HERE!

I can't believe our design team. They have really pulled together this month and rocked out a bunch of great projects. I have the bestest design team around. They are truly a great bunch of ladies. I appreciate each and everyone of them. Their such an asset!

We have two of our special ladies leaving us this month. Thank you Jodi and Raquel for making our company shine with your designs! We wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors. And a special hats off to Raquel. She recently graduated from College! That is a milestone! Great job!

And with those 2 spots open, we had to find other designers to fill their shoes. So on Sunday, August 1st, we will announce our new DT members. Take my word for it, these new ladies are gonna rawk your sawks off! Stay tuned.

So on to the blog hop at hand. I bet you were wondering why there isn't a card or project on my blog. That's because the universe is playing mean tricks on me. Why? Well let me vent a little shall I? Ok it all started when I lost my passport. UGHH! I've been looking for it for over a month. I am going out of the country in August and CAN'T find it anywhere. I'm soo upset about it. I normally have a great memory. But...well...yeah, can't find it anywhere. And on top of it, it's with my birth certificate, marriage license and other important papers. Yikes. Well I had to make an emergency appointment to get a new passport. I leave on the 8th and my appt is on the 3rd. Talk about cutting it close lol. I was able to get my other documents replaced already. I'm just upset about paying for another passport. :(

If that is not bad enough, NOW I can't find my battery charger for my camera. And that means I can't take pictures, which means I couldn't photograph my project I worked on a week ago. My replacement is due here any day now, but *SIGh*.

Well after that vent (thanks for listening), I decided why not tilt the universe in a generous way and give away a free DIGI! :) Yay!

InStyle Stamps InSpiration Challenge

We've changed the name folks. Over the Hump Day Blog Candy give-away is just too long. :)

So our challenge is to create a Halloween card. This project I decided to go with non-traditional colors and use and image we already have for sale in the store. His name is Bendy. I love him! The sentiment says Hap-bee Halloween. How cute is that?

Why not participate in our challenge? All you have to do is create a card by. The prize is if you use one of our images, 4 digital images of your choice. If you use another image, you still get 2 digital images of your choice. You have 48 hours to claim the prize!

Good luck and invite your friend's to participate.

More Halloween Releases

I'm so not the Halloween type of person. I never did much trick or treating when I was a kid. In fact we always did a harvest party at our church, or trunk o treating in the parking lot. Fun times!

So when the holiday rolls around I try to have images created that are not too graphic in detail. I tend to go with the cutesy side of it. Even though I don't know how cutesy it can be LOL.

I have a friend that is very religious that absolutely LOVES Halloween. In fact, it's her favorite holiday. She goes all out this time of year. I think she is too funny! So this season of images were inspired by her and for her.

InStyle Stamps is doing an release showcase of images every couple of hours from now until July 16th when we cap it all off with a release party on Paper Craft Planet. I hope you join us for the fun!

Here are a few cards that have been showcased already on the blog. I will come through-out the day and feature the cards I've created.

If you leave a comment in the blog posts today on the company blog, I will give away one of the images featured today on the blog to 10 random comments! You will be able to choose which image you'd like to receive once you've been notified you've won!

Simply leave a comment here in this thread when you've gone there and left a comment. I will then add your name to a hat (will take a picture of the hat once I get all the entrants done. Then I will draw 10 names and post them on this blog. That's it! Easy peasy. There are some great images coming out today. So you have until 9 pm PST to leave your comment on both blogs. Thanks!

Here is Witchy Cat, Witchy Chloe, Witchy Shoes and Batty Chloe. Don't laugh at my make shift broom ok? ROFLOL.

And how cute is this?

InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge

Hello All!

Happy Friday. Our first sketch of the month is up today. Thanks for stopping by. During the month of July we will be featuring all new Holiday images for Halloween and Christmas. We even have a few fall/harvest ones!

I decided to use Honey Bunny for this sketch. She is already available in our store. Check out InStyle Stamps to see the new images in our other DT projects.

Thanks for stopping by.

P.S. I had a lot of interest in my next give-away of acrylic stamps. I have a lot of Close to my Heart stamps that I will be giving away this month. Stay tuned! In the mix will be Solo's and some full sets that are brand new. I'm giving them away because they are just sitting in my stash collecting dust. I'm hoping that someone will use them and give them a good home. I will offer a give-away close to my birthday. :)
