Click HERE to visit the Sami Stamps Shop! Don't forget to look under the "Freebees and deals" section of the shop for our new deals!   

We have a wonderful Guest Designer with us here today! Sami Samps Challenge #015 winner: Sari!

"I'm a Finnish mother of two lovely daughters (and "mommy" for a little bunny with big ears.) I have been crafting for about three years now and absolutely love it. I have no special style in my card. I like to try different things and styles. Stamps, digistamps, 3D's and ready pictures; CAS, vintage, fun, scarey- I like to do them all. Just can't make my mine which is my fave, but I do know: I'm happy when crafting..."


Sari's Examples

New Release: "Strawberries", Challenge #15 Winner AND New Challenge- #16!

My husband worked late last night. By the time early evening hit, my 3 year old son and I were bored and ready for him to come home. To pass the time, we decided to brave the heat and talk a walk around the  local Farmers Market. We enjoyed sharing a soft serve ice cream cone that came melted straight out of the machine. We sat at a fountain and happily licked and slurped while listening to some locals play whatever their heart desired. They stuck mostly to country, blue grass and the occasional Elvis.

We also enjoyed strolling through the booths sampling fresh, local fruit. Fruit has always been one of my favorite joys of the summer season. So here we go, Sami Stamps newest release: "Strawberries!"

Click HERE to check out the new freebee and $2.00 deal at the Sami Stamps Shop! 
We have some tasty sweet Design Team Examples for you this week!

Happy Birthday Emily Lauritzen!

Happy Birthday to Sami Stamps DT Member Emily Lauritzen!

Emily started crafting in the 7th grade with her step mom and just never stopped! Making cards is her passion and is what she does all day long, and loves it! She is always looking for new techniques or the latest materials and seeing if there is a way she can make them herself. Emily says she doesn't have a specific style and just tries to roll with whatever inspiration comes her way.

I don't know about you but I absolutely ADORE Emily's style. When looking through entries for potential Sami Stamps DT members I knew from the first moment I stopped by her blog that I wanted her to join the team! There is something about her sweet, simple projects that always appeal to me. Her cards are always clean, neat, colored well, and always adorable! Emily has a real talent and Sami Stamps sure is lucky to have her!

Emily has been with Sami Stamps for a while now and has created many lovely DT inspirations. Here are a "few" of my favorites!
