Annette’s Here and the BIG reveal!

Happy Valentines Day Sweeties! 

We’re back today with the big reveal! Our first guest design spotlight – and the shop is open and ready with the new orders. (we’re still working on getting the new website together… so excuse a little of the construction mess)

First I want to quickly remind you that you have until Sunday to visit all the designers blogs and leave comment to win the new release. Winners will be drawn Monday morning and announced either Monday afternoon or Tuesday.

Here are the details – just for those who haven’t seen…

Sweet Stamp Shop is welcoming over 25 guest designers this month to show off both old and NEW stamp sets. We’re proud to welcome all of our guest designers and today you’ll meet some of them.

You know we wouldn’t have a release without lots of give-a-ways! We’ll start off today with giving away ALL four of the new sets! Here’s what you’ll need to do – Visit all the guest designers blogs and help us to welcome them to the ‘sweet’ family by leaving them a comment… They’ll also have bonus projects and tutorials on their blogs – so you’ll LOVE visiting all these talented ladies!! Then come back here and tell us that you made the design team rounds with a comment on this post. 🙂

Bonus entry – head over to facebook and ‘share’ our new release post. You’ll see it right at the top of our facebook wall. You can also share our tweets or create a tweet of your own!

Welcome Annette Allen! 
– A little about Annette from the craft gal herself – 
Hi my name is Annette Allen and I am so glad to be here with you today. I am a stay at home wife and have one dog. I have been crafting since 1997 and have been totally addicted since. My passion is card-making but I am just a crafter. I love to sew and have also dabbled a little in mixed media and scrapbooking. I love giving smiles and do so through my cards. I live each day to the fullest and am so grateful for opportunities like this. Thank you for having me, have a crafty day.
 Using the new View Finder set ( both above photo and below )
 We love our ‘Under the Sea’ set – and Annette does an amazing coloring job dontcha think?

We loved this card Annette made for the release SO much – we’re sharing it again! She’s so talented! 
Take a moment and visit Annette on her blog –
She has more projects – bonus content – and you’ll want to ‘follow’ her amazing blog for future reference. She’s that good! 

By The Way…..

It’s that time when we start looking for March guest designers… if you’d like to be considered please comment below with your blog address, your name, and your location.

Happy Stamping – and Happy  <3 LOVE <3 day! Cheers,

    I think that what you wrote was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., but suppose you
    added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean “Annette’s Here and the BIG reveal!

    ” is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    Here is my page
