Today, I'd like to say "Thank you"!

Thank you to all of you who participated in our NSD challenges and thank you to our sponsors who so graciously donated prizes! Today's spotlight companies are Unity Stamps and Making Memories! Thank you for your dedication to our success!

Bonnie Rose was one of our Unity Stamp challenge winners. Here are a few of Bonnie's projects she submitted.

This is a set of mini cards Bonnie made for a color challenge. I love mini cards! They're great to whip up in multiples to have around for those last minute needs! Here are Bonnie's other entries..

Here she created two 5x7 cards and a coordinating mini album. The mini album was made using a business card portfolio she found at Target. That is such a great idea! It would make a great gift for grandparents!

Debi was our second Unity Stamps Challenge winner! She created a card for the parents of a graduate.

Debi dry embossed the card with the Cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder before adding her stamped image.

During NSD Kick Off week our friend, PJ, issued a Making Memories Slice challenge. Heather McFarland was our Slice challenge winner. Here's the layout she created...

Heather used her Slice and the Basic Shapes 1 Design Card to cut the flowers which she added button centers to. She also added a bracket and the word love which were also cut with the her Slice. Isn't her little boy adorable?!

I have one last project to show you today. If you've visited lately, you've probably noticed a few new Boss Kut dies on the front page. Peanut the Elephant, Bessie the Bovine, Chomp the Alligator, Leo the Lion and Squirt the Octopus are all new exclusive dies! And let me tell you, they are soooooo cute! Here's a card I made last night with Peanut the Elephant.

In addition to Peanut I also used the Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circle and Petite Circles, Quickutz Nesting Balloons, Quickutz Chick-a-Dee 4x8 alphabet and the new Quickutz Scallop Embossing Border. The patterned paper and cardstock are American Crafts. After layering the balloons, I added wire for the strings and tucked them under Peanut's trunk. I LOVE Peanut and already have another card planned! If you've purchased the Scrap-Mart exclusive dies we'd love to see your projects that include them. Email them to me at

Thanks so much for stoppin' by today! Our job would mean nothing without all of you! We'll be back here Friday with another great sketch and the design team's interpretation of the sketch. Enjoy the rest of your week and we'll see you then!
