Week # 7 - Christmas Present

By way of complete contrast to last week's theme, this week we are offering you Christmas Present! In more ways than one. We are excited and delighted to tell you about our brand new regular sponsor, Regina Easter of The Cutting Cafe, who has some fantastic digi kits at extremely reasonable prices. Regina has very kindly offered to sponsor us each month and will offer 3 kits of your own choice to one lucky winner who's name will be drawn at random to one of our players! And having played with some of Regina's kits we can vouch for their versatility, ease of use and fun factor!! Here's a bit about Regina:

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

Our heartfelt thanks to Regina for offering this fabulous prize, and I hope you all find lots of inspiration from her website!

So here we go with our Christmas Present samples:



Now, are you someone who loves all things Christmas? Could you commit to making at least 4 consecutive christmas projects for this blog based on our themes? Would you be willing and able to visit other players blogs leaving positive feedback? We are looking for a number of guest DT'ers who will help us to get to Christmas in one piece, and hopefully un-stressed!! If you think you would like to be a GDT on this blog, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact me leaving a link to your blog and we will let you know what the theme's are and which weeks you would be expected to participate in. All styles are welcome and if we get lots of replies we will do our very best to accomodate everyone as we feel that you all deserve the chance to be showcased on our 'front page'!

So, show us your Christmas Presents - and don't forget to pop over to Regina's place for a good drool and lots of ideas!

Love from

The Team xxx

Great story as for me. I'd like to read something more concerning that topic. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is some pictures of any gadgets.
