New files, CDT member Sandra Allred, coupon, freebie

Hi everyone,
I have a few new files in my store so you can ready for Easter early this year.

First up is the festive twig tree. This little tree will take you through all the holidays and seasons of the year. Simply choose the shape you want and copy it as many time you'd like to adhere to your twig tree. This file was designed to fit perfectly on a 5" x 7" card. Please keep in mind you can also use the shapes on other paper crafting projects. The ghost would be perfect on a Halloween invitation. The flower would look great on a girly scrapbook page. Also, it is easy to add other files to this tree. The jingle bell or ornament from my build a wreath file would look great adhered to this twig tree. Click on the preview to purchase the file.

Next is the Build an Easter Egg. This file has so many choices! This file makes it easy to make many different Easter themed eggs. All the patterned eggs cut as overlays which you place a solid egg underneath thus the color combos are endless! In addition to the egg overlays it comes complete with a basket, plain eggs, and flowers to decorate your basket. You could even decorate the basket further by adding the bow from my festive twig tree file to the basket handle. This looks great on a card or to decorate a gift bag. Click on the preview to purchase the file.

Check out this awesome card CDT Kelly made using this file. I just love the stitching, embossing and jewel she did on the egg.

Here are a few sneak peaks of files coming soon to my store.

I'd like to announce another very creative member of my Creative Design Team.
Sandra Allred. I'm am so happy she agreed to be a part of my team as you will see when you scroll down she is amazingly talented!

Here are a few words Sandra had to say to introduce herself!

"My name is Sandra Allred. I'm 48. I’m married and have a teenage son. I'm a native Carolinian. Born in South Carolina and moved to North Carolina after college. I met my husband in Sunday school at church :-). I work part-time (actually about 3/4 time) at a major utility company. I’ve worked since college and can't wait to retire. Would have a long time ago if hubby didn't insist I work - lol. We attend a Baptist church where I teach 2 year old Sunday school and missions and chaperone the youth on occasion.

I have scrapbooked for 13 years (stamping and card making not quite as long). I purchased my wishblade in spring of 2007 but didn’t really start using it until spring of 2008. I am in the process of purchasing a used KNK. My style varies depending on what I am making. Typically my scrapbook pages are simple and clean cut. I will “step out of my box” when doing cards and altering items.

I love to have fun and tease and my feelings are not hurt easily."

Below are some of the the fabulous projects Sandra has done using my files.

This layout using my Circle and Wave layout file. I just love how she used that surfboard paper!

Here's a coupon for you if you want to purchase the Circle and Wave layout file. Hurry though as it expires at the end of the month.

This layout uses my paint roller file. I just love how Sandra randomly brushed paint on the paper for her background. The paint can file is from Visual Designs by Chris..see her website in her left sidebar. However, I also have a paint can file. See it here.

This layout uses my alphabet charm letters :Uppercase file. I love the simple clean look of this layout. I tend to go overboard with embellishments and I admire those who know when enough is enough!

This card uses my I love you card file. I just love Sandra's choice of papers.

You may have notice little metal charms in Sandra's projects. Well Sandra is definitely a charm lover! She even enticed me to by some charms from her favorite store A Charming Place. Now if I can just remember to use them! I have many more projects to share but I'm sure you are getting tired of this lengthy I'll share them later.

Finally, here is your freebie! Thanks for hanging in there! This uses Bannerwoman's great mulberry layer styles and MDI's great envelope. Click on their blinkie on the right for more info.
