Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #32

Hello everyone! Welcome to Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #32! Thanks to everyone who played along last week! We appreciate you taking the time to join our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations each week! This week's challenge is a punch challenge!

Since I was snowed in and late with my project last week, I never did get to properly thank Amber Hight for being our February guest designer! I'm sure you enjoyed all of Amber's creations as much as we all did!

This is our first challenge of the month, so please welcome our March guest designer... Danielle Lounds! If you aren't familiar with Danielle's work, she will knock your socks off!


Our challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and this week's winner will receive the adorable Street Corner Josh rubber stamp. In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation. Most importantly, have fun! We can't wait to see your creations!


Here's some inspiration from our designers (please click on each designer's name to be directed to her blog for more project details):

Freebie Friday

Happy Friday all!  I hope you're all doing well.  We've had snow the last couple of days and it's been below freezing!  I don't really mind the snow, just makes the commute to work slow and stressful with the ICE, lol.  Well, today I will be giving away Traveling Josh.


Do any of you have any fun travel plans this year?  Catherine, my best friend, is having a blast planning our trip to Chicago in July.  We've both been there before, so it'll be more fun to do things that aren't necessarily so 'touristy.'  She's already found a fun sushi place for us to try.  I'm very excited to attend Summer CHA and then celebrate Catherine's birthday with her.

You will have until Sunday night at midnight EST to enter and the winner will be announced on Monday with the SCRS Challenge #31 Winner.  Everyone have a great weekend!

Freebie Friday and Important Store Updates

Happy Friday everyone!  Now that I'm back from CHA and life is starting to get back to normal, I'm gonna try to get this back on track!  I try to do Freebie Fridays during the weeks we don't have releases and when we're not sponsoring anyone. 

First, I'd like to start with the store updates.  Sadly, I have to inform you that the price of rubber has gone  up significantly.  My manufacturer raised their prices after the New Year and they plan to raise it again in March.  I am trying to eat up as much of the costs I can, but I will be forced to raise the prices of my stamps.

I will sell my current inventory at the current rates, but as I re-stock the store, the new prices will be adjusted to $8.25 for stamps with out a sentiment and $9.25 for stamps with a sentiment.  My images are very detailed and I pride myself with giving you all great quality products.  I never want to short my customers by giving them stamps that aren't deep etched and don't stamp well.

Also, I will still continue to have sales in the store and once I get my newsletter going in a couple of months, subscribers will get a monthly coupon as well.  I really appreciate all of the support you have given me towards my store!  

And now for the fun part of this post.  For Freebie Friday, I'll be giving away Charlotte with a Rose.  So how is February going for everyone else?  I feel like I can never catch up, lol.  And we're already half way to March!?!  But I did have a lovely Valentine's Day.  I'm allergic to pollen, so I never get flowers.  Yet, Brent surprised me this year and got me a set of tulips.  My face is starting to swell up as I write this, lol.  It's almost time for allergy season to start...


You will have until Sunday night at midnight EST to enter and the winner will be announced on Monday with the SCRS Challenge #30 Winner.  Everyone have a great Friday!
