Happy September!

And happy birthday to me!
Since September is my birthday month, I have decided to celebrate in my shop all month long! But more on that later....

The Design Team has been hard at work and they have created some beautiful layouts:

Erica created this great page using the brand new summer die cuts, available in the Etsy shop now.

Shannon doodled the Polka Dot Frame up and made it look great!
This cut has always been one of my very favorites and seeing it on this layout made me love it even more. I am going to cut one for myself and use this technique.

Marix used this Sentiment Circle to hang embellishments and I have to say it makes me think of a mobile, like you use in a baby's crib. When I designed these cuts I always imaged them around photos and when I see them used in a way that doesn't frame a photo, I am always impressed.

Deciding to bring on a Design Team was a big decision for me, but I am so glad I did it. The creativity and imagination they bring to the die cuts really brings them alive. I am very thankful to the girls who work so hard on my team. Girls, you ROCK!

So let's talk promotion and giveaway.

For the entire month of September, in honor of my birthday, purchase a Happy Birthday Lace

and get a free Alphabet Circle Frame in the color of your choice!

Just mention "birthday promotion" in the checkout remarks.


I want my birthday giveaway to be the biggest I have ever had!

So, the winner will be allowed to chose 20 die cuts from my Etsy shop.

Twenty die cuts, any die cuts I sell, in any color the winner chooses.

There are three ways to enter:

1. Visit my Etsy shop, pick your favorite die cut, and come back here and tell me which one you like.

2. Announce the promotion on your blog, and then comment here with a link.

3. Visit any DT member's blog and comment on the giveaway.

I will choose a winner on September 30, by random draw.

Good luck and happy September!
