Snowflake Medley Countdown, day 3

 Goodness! I can't believe we are already half way through the release week! I must say, THANK YOU for all your sweet feedback on the new stamp set! I am so excited for you all to use it this season. And I have to give special thanks to my husband who has been quite positive about the fact that my mantle is COVERED in Christmas cards and gifts and projects! I know in about a day or so he will be probably make me take it down, but for now, I am really enjoying the Christmas cheer in my house! Now if ONLY he would let me start playing Christmas music, we would be set! :)

OK, incase you are stopping in for the first time... here's the info on my NEW stamp set:

"Snowflake Medley" is releasing at Papertrey Ink's online store on Sept. 15, retailing for $15.

Here's more info and projects from count down DAY 1, and DAY 2.


 This project was a special present for my sweet 5 year old son.  He is all into making his room "his own." So he has his own art, toys, posters etc. And at Christmas he LOVES decorating his little 3 ft tree, so I thought it would be fun to make a little sign to hang on his door.
 I made the sentiment on my computer- and used my favorite color combo. (As you probably expected by now!) PTI Pure Poppy, Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, and I used the Making Memories Journal block again.
 I loved hanging the snowflakes. AND if this was for my daughter, I probably would have had a ton more layers, glitter, bling etc on all of these... but I was trying not to over do it- so the project didn't feel all tooooo girly. (Don't worry! We have lots more layer frenzies coming up before the week is up!!! Awesome projects ahead! Don't miss it!)
 When I told my son I made him a present, he was SO thrilled, and when I told him it was for his door, he was EVEN more excited... and the smile on his face when I read the words on the sign to him was absolutely priceless. What a treasure it is to watch a child believe wholeheartedly in something-- and quite magical when it is believing in Santa. My little sweetheart insisted on being in the picture, too. SO, here he is. Worth every bit of glue, every bit of creativity, worth the hours it took just to design the set... so worth it, right here in this moment. I sure am a blessed mama.

SO, ARE YOU READY FOR A PRIZE?!?!

TODAY'S GIVE AWAY: 
Winter Cheer Stamp Set (retail: $24)
(This stamp set couples perfectly with Snowflake Medley! It features some awesome images and the lyrics of vintage tunes. With a slightly distressed touch, you will find it adds SO much to your projects!)

 As I am designing stamps for next year... what type of stamp sets or themes or ideas would you love to see? What's the next stamp set YOU would love to see released?? I want your input!! Leave a comment on this post before Sept 15 and you are eligible to WIN! A random number will pick the winner, and winner will be announced on the morning of Sept. 15 by 9am. 


Have a day worth remembering!
 Smiles, Tiffany

I would love to see a set with classrom items such as a clipboard and pencil and an oversized paper clip (the clip must have a matching die).

  11. What a beautiful sign for your son's door! I would love to have a window and window box die and some stamps to coordinate with that! I really like the smaller stamp sets, since the 24 dollar ones are harder for me to afford very often.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What a clever idea! It would be a beautiful card too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the snowflakes, and you sign is beautiful - might make some of these for the children to hang on their doors.
    An anniversary stamp set, stamp sets to match in with tag sale dies would be high on my list.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. Your son's sign is adorable and the saying is so perfect for a little one awaiting Christmas morning!! I'd love to see a vintage bicycle and basket (with different items to go into it)and a word bubble set with some distressed sentiments. Thanks for asking!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Tiffany - your little boy is adorable! Your daughter was born on the same day as my granddaughter - same year and everything! Aren't they just so precious? I love the distressed look of your stamp sets - I use Embellishments all the time. I would love to see more Scripture verses next year - can never have too many. And I'm looking forward to using Nativity Silhouettes this year on my Christmas cards. Thanks foo sharing your creativity and your heart for the Lord!

  20. What a cute project and how precious is your son! As for stamps, I'd love to see something with tools for the handymen in my life and something "techie" like laptops, cell phones, cables, etc. for the IT guy in my life. I'd also really love to see another PTI camera set. It would be sooo cool if it could have stamps of different camera styles (i.e. 35 millimeter, a vintage Kodak, a Polaroid), maybe an old fashioned film strip, etc. Thanks for the chance to win!

  21. Love the sweet sign and adorable picture of your son!
    I would love a $5.00 set geared towards other helpers/leaders at school: principal, office staff, librarian, art teacher, pe teacher, music teachers etc.
    Also possilby pre-school releated too though my son is past this stage I wished I had it back in the day...
    Also would love more book mark / book related sayings. I use the book mark die to make book marks for my son's school and would like some more sentiments that are child based / elementary school level based - Dr. Suessisms or things about reading etc.

  22. Love to give hanging signs as gifts to special people. Yours is a keeper!
    Anything along the vintage line. Aprons, old coffee pots, make your own wallpaper designs for background. These are all things I'd love.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the sign but the vintage sentiment stole my heart. I love old aprons, bottles/mason jars and lace.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the sign you have made very cute .
    I would love to see stamp sets geared up at male hobbies .
    Also more vintage images.

  25. Beautiful projects you've had this week! Love that smile on your little 'uns face. So precious!
    I've been searching high and low for a clear stamp set to make cards for my DD's Italian, cooking-lovin' teacher. I'd love a stamp set with various kitchen utensils and a big, fat chef, complete with a chef's hat & carrying a platter on which to showcase various dishes, etc. I've only looked for clear stamps, and only found one set that has the utensils - I've not found ANY sets that feature a cool chef. With planning, you could make a fabulous set with layering versatility, maybe even some dies to match?? Oh, and if it could get released before the school year is out ... that'd be awesome! :wink:wink:

  26. Cute sign and even cuter kid!! I love stamp sets that include Bible verses!! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a precious young man! Love the door project too. I would love to see a Halloween stamp with cute spiky high heel shoes and a saying to go with it that says "Every good witch knows..... it's all about the shoes". It doesn't have to be just Halloween. There are lots of sayings to go with shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Such a fabulous snowflake set.......and of course love the dies to coordinate!
    I would love for you to design a year long series of $5 mini sets that each have a few background element images(like the corrugated cardboard from My Father, My Hero and Grunge Me) and and maybe one unique, not overly used, easily found sentiment. Love your grungy distressed style. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love to see a bicycle set. Something to do with ballerinas or gymnasts. And a set with ocean animals.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love your grunge element from My Father, My Hero and use it quite often. Some additional grunge background elements would be a great addition to anyone's stamp collection.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would put your sign on my front door to be sure Santa saw it.
    I am always looking for masculine images and sentiments that are not too cute. Love what you do.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm sure your son will treasure his new door hanging for a long time! For new sets, I'd love some more masculine things other than hunting and fishing. On two opposite ends of the spectrum, tech gadgets would be great, as well as a set of vintage watches and clocks. Thanks for the chance to win this new set!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the snowflakes, and as for next year? I'd love to see a bicycle. And sentiments for the inside of cards, I'm always looking for those!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love your stamp sets! I would love to see a two or three step stamping Christmas candies or any candy for that matter, maybe add in a stocking to see it peeking out of. I would also LOVE to see more project life friendly stamps and dies, so I could cut and stamp all my own journaling cards. Love more stamps for scrap booking. Oh and a large grid stamp ( the size of the herringbone BB) would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the snowflakes!! I would love to see 1) some scripture verses and 2) a wreathe (and die) with seasonal add ons, like poinsettias for Christmas, bows, tiny birds for spring, tiny pumpkins for fall, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a fabulous sign, the delight is plain to see on your little boy's face :) I think you might find it still there after Christmas :D
    With regard to new stamp designs, I over indulge in flowers and butterflies - so that is probably what I would suggest - LOL.

    Thank you, for the opportunity to win that delightful stamp set :)

  42. What a cute idea for your son! I have actually been thinking about a stamp set I haven't been able to find anywhere. A fuschia flower/plant with several flowers on it and a hummingbird to place near a flower. I think it would be really fun to color with copics, etc. Thanks for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a great idea - can tell it's a hit by the grin on your son's face.

    ReplyDelete
  44. How adorable! Love the sign for your son's room.
    I'd really like to see an all around stamp set for vintage images like you see in a natural history museum. Weird huh? Very vintagey stamps of some insects and some animals with some definitions.

    ReplyDelete

  51. I don't have a single snowflake stamp set and this one is just gorgeous! Love that you also have dies to go with it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a precious gift for your son. I love how you dangled all of the snowflakes from the sign. This is so much fun. I've taken to making wall hangings for my girls, daughter in law and daughter, for the different holidays. Thanks for some great inspiration to get some holiday crafting done. And thanks for a chance to win some great Stampendous stamps. I would really like to see some landscape stamps, like little log cabins in the pine trees or a cottage house surrounded by flower beds. Things that could be colored easily with an aqua painter or markers, but still reflecting different times of the year.

  53. I'd love to win a Winter themed stamp set. After all, 'tis almost the season to start cranking out the holiday cards.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Actually I was sooooooo hoping that door sign had a stamp set u could use to create it right behind it! So..... My idea would be a new stamp set that could be used to create door signs but especially for kids but could also be versatile enough to use for cards etc. and if their were matching dies that would be an added bonus:)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Cute, CUTE project! Wish the sentiment on the sign was a stamp. 8-(

    ReplyDelete
  74. Really great door hangar!! love the colors and the different layers, and the really fun sentiment!! :-P
    As far as stamp sets, I love sewing and quilting images and sentiments, but not stiff drawings, but fun and flowing, the way fabric really is. Also some lovely nordic, Scandinavian images, taken from folk art would be wonderful!! And sentiments for men, and things to go with them, like antique cars, pocket watches, motorcycles, trains, etc, done in an antique or sketchy or grunge style. Have fun: can't wait to see what you come up with!! :-)
