Big News and a Treat!

Ok, have I kept you in suspense long enough?? The big news is out . . . and you can view it here. I am thrilled, excited and - did I say thrilled - to say I am now a member of the first ever Design Team at Paper Pretties! The very talented and super sweet Christie Ortman, owner of Paper Pretties, has put together a fabulous Design Team including Jillian Winters (aka Jillabella), Kristine Reynolds and ME!! We are all looking forward to this amazing opportunity!

Now, to help celebrate I thought it was time for some treats! How about a $20 gift certificate to use in the Paper Pretties' store? Who wouldn't love to go shopping? :) So to be entered just leave me a comment, I'd like a name for my blog candy - something catchy to go with my blog. I'll randomly draw a winner on Monday, August 13 so spread the word and enter now!

I'll leave you with a card I created a few weeks ago when I was the Guest Designer for July at Paper Pretties. I made this card with the supplies in my July box and a few of the suggested add-ons. The July stamp set was Hit the Beach from My Favorite Things. The sentiment is from Little Lady by Papertrey Ink.

Have a great day everyone, thanks for checking in!! :)

  9. You have a great blog! Now you need a great name.
    I was thinking and thinking about your blog name and came up with one I would like for my own. Except I do not have a blog or have the time, or desire to have one.
    The name I came up with drum roll please...taa-daa...

    "The artistic Impression"

    Perfect, because stamping is impressing ink onto paper and stamping alone is art. Thats the name I would use *if* I had a blog.

    ReplyDelete
  10. OK I read it wrong, I thought you were looking to change your blog name. OK if I had a blog I would call my blog candy....Big Hugs & Kisses...then each time I did the my "Big Hugs & Kisses" I would send along with the prizes a one chocolate hersheys kiss in the box to. Like a trade mark of yours.

  45. What a thrill for you - Congratulations, Julie! There are some great name selections already for your blog candy, and I'm rooting for either Jewels or Jems since both go so well with the name Julie.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You are so deserving of this. Can't wait to see what you do with those stamps!
    Its hard to get my mind off of the one I really REALLY like when I saw it. It was Alli Mile's idea:
    "**JULZ (Julie and Jewels??!!)"
    Isn't that a gem?
    a gem...get it? I'm normally not that funny in the morning, but then again, maybe its not that funny. I'll know later in the day. ;)
    Again congratulations!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  64. Hi Julie!
    Congratulations on your news!

    And thank you for offering the treat!

    BTW...I loved your "have the right shoes" card...too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  65. WOW! Huge congrats Julie! You are so deserving. Wonderful cards.

    I immediately thought Julies Jewels too! Saw that was guessed as I came to comment.

    So I guess that or Bloggin Baubles, just to be different-Bauble is another tern for jewel I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  66. It's late which explains why my brain is in neutral. The only thing that I can think of to rhyme with Jule is drool. So Julie's droolies it is. Congrats on your great new!
