Celebrate your freedom to craft by giving yourself a treat today.  Stop by my store and get 40% off all my designs.  This includes digital cutter files, digital stamps, and digital scrapbooking products (membership club excluded).  Click here to go shopping.  Before you go though check out some inspiring projects below.

 Sue Shaff has been created some awesome learning books for her grandson Clay using cutter files and various embellishments.   I proposed to Sue that my emoticons file might make a good emotions book for Clay.  Thankfully Sue thought it was a great idea and the book she created is wonderful!  I will show it to you in a slideshow below so this post doesn't get over run with photos.

Above is the photo of Clay enjoying his book.  Isn't he just adorable!   I think Sue did an awesome job on the book.  It's great Clay has such a caring and creative Grandma!  You can see some of the other books she made on Sue's blog here.  If you would like to purchase the emoticons file please click here.   I designed this file to mimic text message smiley so these are perfect for layouts featuring kids texting or even cards for teens who like to text! 

Next up I have a terrific card by Jan W.  Jan used my Spring Water Can digital stamp. 
Here is what Jan had to say about her card.  "I colored it with colored pencils and experimented with "Gamsol" (odorless mineral spirits) to blend the colors. By using the spirits, it really got rid of the lines created by coloring with the pencils. I cut extra parts of the flowers out to make it more 3D. I used a paint brush to 'paint' the watering can with pearl glimmer mist. Of course I needed a little bling-bling to jazz it all up, and kylee's 'cranberry' dews were the perfect choice."  I know Jan was a little disappointed as she mentioned the variation in colors didn't show up that well in her photo.  I dunno I think it looks fab to me!  If you would like to purchase my stamp click on the words above the preview.

 Next up we have an amazing masculine card.  I always struggle with masculine cards.  I find much inspiration in Kelly's projects as she is great at them! 

Kelly used my tent card: scenery file in combination with Accents by Eddita's deer.   I will definitely be copying this card in the future as my Dad would love this!  I love tent cards...they add much dimension but can be flattened easily for mailing.  Click on the words above the preview if you'd like to purchase my tent card.
