Winter Time Smoochie Digital Stamp

This time I did Smoochie a little bit anime. Just for something a little different. I probably won't do anymore like this, but it's fun for a change of pace.
If you like our new Smoochie line, participate in the blog hop we have going on right now. Every TSB girl has a prize on her blog plus there's a grand prize of the entire Smoochie line! There are 12 in the line now, so that's a pretty good prize. :D Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

Let's Go to the Hop!!!

It has been an AMAZING first month from the new design team gals, I don't know about you all but these ladies blow me away daily with their projects.  So we thought let's have a "Freestyle Blog Hop" to show off those talents.  What is a "Freestyle Hop" you may ask?  Well we gave the team free reign to create any project they would like using any TSB image and  show us their unique flair!

This hop starts today, November 11th (12:01 am CST) and will run all weekend ending on Sunday, November 13th  (11:59 pm CST) to allow you plenty of time to hop.  Now with any hop there has to be some prizes along the way right?  Well this hop is no exception!! You will want to make sure to visit each design team member's blog and leave a comment as each one will be giving away one TSB image! 

If that isn't enough to entice you to hop with us, well maybe this will- 1 random person (who comments on all DT blogs and leaves a final comment on this blog) will be selected to win the entire set of our newest line of images called the Smoochies.HOLY MOLY, now that is a great prize as there are 11 images in the line currently!!! You can see the Smoochies HERE!

So are you ready to hop?  Well the hop starts with me (Christy) over at my blog 
Christy's Zaney Creations, so come on over and see what I have in store for you! Below is your hop order in case you get lost along the way:

Okay...on to the:

Okay, there you have it! Congrats to all of you and thanks again for playing along!

Nov. 11th in the States is Veteran's Day this is a day dedicated to those who have served in our Armed Forces...something that is close to my own heart seeing as my husband spent 15 years as an Active Duty Airmen...this is a day to give thanks to them. So for your projects that is what I'd like to see...something thankful, something in remembrance, something that is personal to you about Veteran's.... basically anything that is supporting/thanking/or showing some love for a veteran! I'm easy to please so let me see what you've got!!!

Here are some fantastic examples of what I'm asking of you from our DT...hope you get inspired!!!

She is using the Poppie image and made a thank you card. Seeing this has made me determined to make this folded card this is just stunning. I love that it has a poem and those bright stunning poppies!

Is using star. Do you see the glitter in that background paper...oh my...and the embossing folder she used almost reminds me of like fireworks. I think that sometimes...less is better...wouldn't you agree?!!!

Another card using the simple but stunning star image. She sprayed her creation with some glimmer mist and if you enlarge it you can really tell...looks great! I am in love with those buttons across the bottom and that lovely twine!

Using Patriotic Audrey...this was one of my first images! Those silver stars are a great addition and fab coloring!!

Who is using a new image to the store....a smoochie in the window (you haven't seen the smoochies MUST go over to the store and take a look...they have become very popular very fast) Miranda makes that smoochie look good!! I love that she cut the image out.

is using smoochie baby boy (I told you they were popular). I love this card...I love the sentiments that Stacie uses on her creations and how fitting they are to the image. I just realized she made a baseball in the great is that! The card is shaped like home time I look I see something new!

is using mail girl for her card and honestly when I look at this card I think of the spouses that have to hold down the fort at home while their husbands go to war and back a few years ago the only communications you would have is through mail. I just love that die cut!

using star image and using it quite wonderfully I must say! Another CAS (clean and simple) card that I know any veteran would love to receive!!

Okay...that's it for today! I hope you got inspired and we can't wait to see what you create for us!!!

Smoochie Smartie Parts!

Hi everyone,
This image started out as a reading image for my friend Jennifer Scull. She suggested a Smoochie reading and I thought it was a great idea. Then I started adding books and the glasses and on and on and this is what I ended up with. "Smoochie Smartie Pants"!!!  LOL!
Have a wonderful evening!

Freebie for our Fabulous Followers!!!!

I'm not sure if I've posted this one before, but I thought it would be nice for Christmas cards. Have a wonderful day!!!
(If you've missed it, become a follower and don't miss another one)!!!

and our fabulous Christy's Smoochie...

Smoochies, Smoochies, Everywhere I see Smoochies!

The new Smoochie line of images are becoming a fast fave with the design team and I thought it was perfect time to share a few of the fabulous creations!  Lawren has created the most adorable frame using 
"Baby Boy Smoochie", isn't her subject just adorable?

Here is a close-up of her wonderful coloring and wonderful design, perfect papers & embellies compliment her image!

Now Jen has worked with a couple different Smoochie images for her works of art.  First up she has used "Smoochie Blowing Kisses" as always she pick the perfect papers and embellies to compliment her little dancer.  I would love to just dive into her embellies sometimes to see what I can find to use. LOL!!!

When I saw this card I thought what a genius Jen is, this is a wonderful example of combining digital images.  In the background she has used the "skyline image" and put our little "Smoochie Fashionista" out in front like she is strolling through the neighborhood or maybe out shopping for clothes!

Make sue to check out the TSB challenge on Tuesday as you will be seeing a couple more FANTASTIC projects using the Smoochies!!!
