Whimsical Wednesday

Hello Wednesday and hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Spring Break is 1/2 over at our house. Little guy is still recovering from his tonsils. I didn't expect him to still be in major pain 6 days later but he is. I am hoping that today is a good turn around day for him. But I have decided that I would be a horrible nurse and as much as I love my son, 6 days of babying him is pretty much making me a crazy lady :) But I will try and enjoy it knowing it's almost over, right??!

Today is a fun day! It is our Season 2 premiere on My Craft Channel! I love that you can watch the videos and then hop on over to DCWV Deals and buy some of the project supplies! We are going to be offering a big coupon this weekend so be sure to check the blog on Friday for that code. But watch today's episode of DCWV Deals: Creative Inspiration on a Budget HERE.

I wanted to show you some great projects using the new stack, "Whimsical World" which is out at Jo-Ann right now. This is such a fun stack and if you liked the "Green" Stack, you will love the whimsical little animals in this one. And the colors are so bright and fun!

DT Member Dayna Sabrina made 4 of the cutest cards with this stack! I love them all! I love all of her layers and great cut outs from the Whimsical World Stack.

As you can see, this is a great stack for cards. You can see more views of Dayna Sabrina's cards HERE on her blog post.

And this fun layout from Sara shows some of the great patterns in the stack. Love all of the circles and details in each page. So cute! More on Sara's page can be found HERE.

I am sure with all of our new stacks you are trying to make your list of which ones need to be added to your collection first! I hope you can find a Jo-Ann and stop by to flip through this stack, it's a great one!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

DT Spotlight: Jan Garber

Hello Monday! Wow, what a week last week was! I hope you enjoyed our blog hop last week. I know we loved creating and sharing our love with Tombow Adhesive. They really do make some awesome glue, trust me! We will be announcing our blog hop winners tomorrow so be sure to stop by and see how luck you are!

But we still have some winners today from Thursday's Northridge Media Giveaway! 

I am a beginner in scrapbooking and I haven't owned any paperstacks yet but based from what I can see on other crafters' works, I definitely would try Mariposa paperstack from DCWV <3 I love the colors! Every paperstack is unique in its own way and I love to be able to use any one of them. Thank you for the chance! hugs,

Picking a favorite is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE!!! But one of my stacks that gets used the most is the Linen Closet stack. Love Love Love :)

so tough to choose! Torn between the Cafe Mediterranean and the Blue Citrus. Both make me think of spring, which I'm hoping will FINALLY show it's face around here!

Send me an email with your address and I will get your 3 free stacks sent right out to you! Congratulations!

I am so excited to spotlight one of our awesome Design Team members today! Jan Garber is a total sweetheart and amazing crafter. She is the cutest grandma and I have loved getting to know her while she has been on our team. 

When I asked why she would be good on our Design Team, this is what she said:

"Why would I make a good member of your new design team? I feel that I am open to new trends and LOVE sharing my ideas and creations with others, as well as continuing to learn from my fellow members.  I give 110% to my efforts that I commit myself to. I am very organized and I have no other obligations (such as work, or children still at home) so deadlines and assignments are not a problem. I enjoy taking on new challenges. I also have no intention of being on more than a few design teams, and therefore insuring that I have plenty of time to spend on each. I am also very committed to donating a large portion of my cards to patients at a local nursing home. Therefore, the products I receive go to a greater cause, as well as promoting the product blog online."

Check out some of her fun projects!

(I love how keeps track of which stacks she has!)

Thank you Jan, for being such a great asset to our team! I love seeing your creations and you are always so cheerful and pleasant to work with :)

Day 5: Spring Fling DCWV/Tombow Blog Hop

I can't believe this week is over!! It was a busy one for sure. But it has been wonderful participating in the Spring Fling DCWV/Tombow Blog Hop! Have you loved all of the projects??! I know I have been totally inspired and in awe of all the awesome creations!

Our final day of hopping end here on the DCWV blog! I have been waiting to show you what I made with the 6x12 Chickadee Stack which is out at Michaels right now. I love that it is a double sided stack and it also has an awesome decorative edge to it. Very unique for us at DCWV! 

When I set out my Spring decorations this year, I knew that I needed something cute and crafty to stick in my tulip pot. And this project was perfect for me to have a challenge!

I used my Silhouette to cut all of the shapes out with the Chickadee Stack and used my favorite Green Lid Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere it all down. I have used this glue for at least the last 6 straight years! LOVE it, the only liquid glue that you will find on my desk :) Once I had the topper all done, I glued it to a skewer and stuck it in my pot. I love how it turned out, it's perfect for the spot on my entry table and honestly was super simple for me to throw together!

I hope you have loved all of the Blog Hop projects from this week! Remember, we are picking some winners from the comments on all of the blog posts! We will post the winners on Monday so you have the weekend to get your comments in! We have lots of DCWV paper and Tombow Adhesive up for grabs, you don't want to miss out!!

If you are just getting here, today's Blog Hop started HERE on Marie's blog. So check out all of the great projects! Have a wonderful weekend and THANK YOU to all of the designers and our friends at Tombow for all of your work to make this week a slam dunk ;) Oh and Happy March Madness too!
