I'm a smART Cookie!!!



Well, I've had a little something up my sleeve for a while now...I applied to be on the design team for smARTworks rubber stamps back in June. I made the first cut (I think that narrowed us down to 13 or so from 46)! So then, they sent me some stamps to use and I submitted these three cards to them using those stamps last week. I went to my scrapbook weekend on Thursday (weren't you wondering where I had been?) and got back Sunday night. Then yesterday, the email came that I had made it!!! WoHOooo!!! Dina Kowal (Mama Dini's Stamperia) is the Lead Designer and then there are the four of us--Donna Duquette (SCS donnarie), Heidi Kingery (SCS sweetheidijo), Deborah March (2Peas gram-pea), and ME!!!! I am way excited!! Thanks to all of you who have already noticed that I was chosen from either Dina's blog, the smARTworks site, or Susan's blog, In the Works (she's the owner of the company itself--too cool--talk about your Rockin' Girl Entrepreneur!)!! All your well-wishes mean a lot to me!! The first and second card uses a set called Remembering and on both cards I used a little Basic Grey paper. The "toile" card also says "faith and beauty" in Silver Encore, but you can barely make it out in the picture--it's very cool IRL--trust me! The third card (my favorite) uses their "Weave" background stamp and "forever" from a little set of word stamps that include that one, plus "faith, beauty and remember". I love the typeface and each of those words on cards look so perfect! (Not to mention how they could be used for some fun ATC's!) The heart is chipboard that I painted pink and popped up on dimensionals. Anyway, I just HAD to share my news...you'll be seeing a lot more designs using their stamps--go check out their online catalog! I have been stamping away the last couple of days, initiating new rubber, so I will have more to be seen in the coming days (in between overseeing the bathroom remodeling!). Thanks for checkin' in on me!
