Scrappy Moms Sneak Peek # 1 and GIVEAWAY!!!

It's here! IT'S HERE! My guest design spot for Scrappy Moms!! Today they are releasing 2 fabulous products!

If you've been following me for a while or if you notice the label that I have the most posts for, then you can pretty easily figure out that I love Scrappy Moms stamps! This is totally on my crafting bucket list - to be a designer for a product I really love! :)

I have immense respect for two moms, them being Melanie and Tammy, starting a business like this. And the stamps? They are AWESOME! They have great sentiments, fun themes, adorable and varied fonts, reasonable prices, and you get a lot of stamps in a set. Do you get that I like these stamps???

So without further adieu, here is their newest stamp set, Spring Fair!

The first stamp that jumped out at me was the "You're sweeter than Cotton Candy," so I created this card with it:

My daughters love this card!
They both had cravings for cotton candy
after they saw it. Gotta love THAT!

I placed a pocket on the inside to hold a gift card.

My youngest wants me to save this card
for her birthday next month and fill it with
iTunes gift cards. We'll see. I have to decide
if she really is sweeter than cotton candy! :)

One of my favorite SM stamps, "Sweet Birthday Wishes"
was used for an inside greeting.

Can you see the fluffiness of the cotton candy? Yum!

The back is also stamped with a Scrappy Moms stamp,
"Created By." Nice finishing touch! 

  • "You're sweeter than Cotton Candy" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' NEWEST stamp set, Spring Fair!
  • "Sweet Birthday Wishes" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' Oldie but goodie, "Sweet Somethings" stamp set
  • "Created by" stamp from Scrappy Moms' Everyday Greetings stamp set
  • Cotton ball inked with Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink to make cotton candy
  • Stampin' Up Pink Passion ink
  • Cricut Imagine Bugglegum Stripes cartridge for pink striped patterned paper
  • White Colorbok textured cardstock
  • Blossom baker's twine purchased from Scrappy Moms
  • Creative Memories corner rounder punch
  • Terrifically Tacky red tape to adhere my patterned paper in a roll to hold the cotton candy
  • Recollections foam dots to pop up the white mat
 I think that about covers it for supplies. So there's my first project as guest designer for Scrappy Moms! I will have more to show you over the next week, including a project done with their 2nd product released this month, so please come by again! I love visits, comments, and new followers (hint, hint). :)

Speaking of wanting bloggy love in the form of comments and new followers, I am doing a GIVEAWAY in honor of my guest designer spot on Scrappy Moms. Hmmm . . . what should I giveaway?? A Scrappy Moms stamp set of course!
