Good evening all!
I thought I'd post an update on the results of the Imaginisce Halloween card contest that I entered last weekend.
I WON! :)
I felt pretty good about my card when some of the Design Team members from Imaginisce posted such lovely comments on my blog (thank you Melinda and Liz!!) but I was still surprised (but super, super excited) when they announced me as one of the winners! My husband wasn't home at the time to witness me dancing around the living room, but he was as excited as I was when I called him with the news. Thank you Imaginisce for selecting my card! :)
Since I kept the my blog post for the contest pretty Imaginisce-focused, I did want to highlight some of the other products I used. Although I used primarily Imaginisce paper, I did use some of the DCWV Brights Adhesive Mat Stack as accent colors (the front porch, door, and shutters as well as parts of Frankenstein and Franken-Bride). I have found that I absolutely love the adhesive stacks, especially the ability to adjust the pieces if necessary before they are "stuck" on the card.
The other product I would live to mention (and because they are so awesome they're getting their own paragraph, lol) is Scrappy Moms Stamps. I had struggled to find a sentiment that I loved for my card until I stumbled across their "A Haunting We Will Go" stamp set, which featured the "Die-monds are a ghoul's best friend" sentiment from my card. I ordered the stamps almost a week before the card was due, hoping I would be lucky and they would arrive fairly quickly. Unfortunately, I must have hit the "hot period" for these stamps because they were out of stock! Lucky for me, Melanie (of Scrappy Moms Stamps) was more than willing to express order and 2-day ship my stamps to me for a minimal extra charge. She even sent me a follow-up e-mail to make sure they had arrived. They made it in time, and the rest is history. Thank you Scrappy Moms Stamps!! As I said to Melanie, I'll definitely be a repeat customer due to the awesome customer service I received!
I'm looking forward to receiving my prize package from Imaginisce over the next few days...amusingly enough, the Imaginisce Facebook group was randomly picking fans this week to receive a fun prize pack...and guess who won again? ;) (apparently this was my lucky week!!).
As for future projects...I think I am going to try out for Kassidy of Inking It Up Crazy's Winter Design Team. I have an idea for the card and I just need to sit down and make it...wish me luck! I also need to do the last few weeks of coursework for the My Creative Classroom course I am taking on Design Studio...I am only 3 weeks behind :-/ The sad part is I am using Design Studio for all of these projects, so I am practicing (even if it isn't what I'm supposed to be doing, lol)!
Thanks for reading and following! I will try to post again soon!
