Crafty Secrets DT---New Product Show-Offs...AND a Giveaway!!!

Good morning, my friends!

Believe it or not, I'm STILL on vacation--a long one this year!

I have managed, however, to sneak a few moments here and there over the last few weeks to create a few things with all the fabulous new products being released by Crafty Secrets...and that's what I'll be sharing with you today!

Charms, decorative wall hangings, many fun things you can do with the gorgeous new "Mini Vintage" Creative are SO going to love this new set!

Here are a few things I made...

 Three ready-to-wear charms...simple and so much fun to make!  Add a bit of seam binding, cord, or a perfect chain...and you're ready to go!

A beautiful French lady in a locket...trimmed from a larger image in the scraps...just perfect for this more ornate brass charm...

A little girl sings with the sweet little birds in her summer garden....this took me only about 5 minutes to put together...

...a larger scrap cut to fit the frame, cut from the backside of the scraps sheet...topped with the little girl's garden image...edged with "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink...a bit of Platinum Stickles surrounding it for a bit of sparkle...covered with a clear glaze, and that's it!

I then just added a lovely bit of wired ribbon and a few found metal flowers for an accent...easy peasy!

Another fun little accent piece using the "Mini Vintage" Creative Scraps, a large "bottle cap" for the frame, and Crafty Secrets' lovely new "Queen Bee" stamp set--I just LOVE this one! about a few cards?

First--from the new and oh, so adorable "Birds of Happiness" stamp set...

...a sweet, tiny card made with one of my favorite new images...

...this charming little "Cup of Joy" girl sits in a pretty little teacup.  I used two different paper patterns from the fabulous new "Creating with Vintage Patterns" CD--another new offering from Crafty Secrets --just wait till you try this!

And for the men in your about a little vintage baseball?  Crafty Secrets' new "Play Ball" stamp set is just filled with wonderful images and sayings to use for any manly occasion!

Two more masculine-style prints and a piece of "journal paper"taken from the CD for my backgrounds...I stamped the vintage baseball card twice, cut out the player...colored him & put him back in place on the it just a pop of color & some dimension...

And another one of my very favorite new sets...

...isn't this fabulous?!  Here's what I came up with: 

...a sweet little set of keys...tied with "ribbons" complete with words that make up your "Keys to Life", love, joy, gratitude...and so many more!

Again, I used two different prints from the new CD--you won't believe how many choices you'll have just at the push of a button!

So many new & wonderful vintage-inspired products to create with!!!
