Design Team News, A New Technique Class and Bloggy Giveway Time!!!

Okay...so remember last week when I told you had some exciting news...well...I made a design team!!!! I am now one of the three newest members of the Use Your Stash Design Team and I am super excited to be working with Kimmie and Corey!!! If you haven't yet checked out Use Your Stash, you totally should! It's all about making use of that hoard of supplies that we all know you have!!! I love it! Fun challenges and GREAT prizes! I will be posting here with each new challenge after it is posted on the blog! I actually got my page done for my first assignment over the weekend and I can't WAIT to share it with you guys!!!

I also wanted to share with you that I just posted a fun Technique Triple Play class over at All Moments Remembered! The class includes the full instructions for the Joseph's Coat, Toilet Paper Casting, and Retiform stamping techniques! So much fun stuff there!!!

Here is one of the cards I made for the class:

Check out the board for more!!!

And....now for lotsa stinking fun!!! I love blog giveaways! I can't do them as often on my own blog as I would like, but I am working on that! LOL! I MUST tell you about the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival I am telling you, it is INSANE!!!!

I had a blast entering (and winning!) several giveaways in the last one, so I really wanted to participate this time around! I don't have a photo of my prize yet, but I will be making a set of three felt brooches as my giveaway! I am so excited about it!!!


Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button




Here is the info you need to enter:
1. You must have a United States address. I apologize to those outside the US, however, my budget only allows for shipping to the US.

2. You must leave a way for me to contact you. This means either a blog link or an email addy. This is essential, as if you do not have this you will not be entered because I can't contact you if you win.

3. Leave a comment telling me something about yourself...please do not leave just an "enter me" type of comment, as it is way more fun to get to know people through these things!

4. You will receive an extra entry if you follow my blog! Just click on the "Follow the Leader" on my sidebar.

5. After you have entered my giveaway, head on over to Bloggy Giveaways and check out the list of other participants! She is expecting over 1000 blogs this time around!!! How cool is THAT???
