Welcome to our first Introductory Post for our special Release #8! As I already shared with you, Release #8 marks our 1 year birthday celebration! Woo Hoo! Still can't believe it's been a whole year already.
So, for those of you who follow my personal blog, you may have seen this little girl pop up here and there along the way... Meet Mariko! She's comes bearing gifts.. and what's a birthday without gifts? She was originally supposed to be a Christmas release stamp since she is holding a gift, but since gift giving occurs year round, we thought it was more fitting to release her during our birthday party!
Mariko is named after my CBFF (Crafty BFF) Debi! Debi has helped me from before day 1 of Sister Stamps and has been my sounding board, voice of reason, and source of inspiration for the past couple of years now. She really is more than a CBFF, she's my stamping sister!! How fitting then to name this image after her. When I was thinking of a name, I immediately thought of her since she is so giving and sweet, just like this image.
I was inspired by this tutorial on one of our retailer's sites.. All That Scraps! This easy peasy gift card holder was the perfect project for all of the store samples. All you have to do is score here, score there, fold, tape and you're done! This will be one of the projects we will be making at some of the make 'n takes on Oahu next month.
And here's some of the samples I made for the retail and online stores. Love me all of those Doodlebug papers! Since they are 2-sided, it takes the guest work out of worrying if the inside will coordinate with the outside.
So now for the fun part... Wanna chance to win Mariko? Here's all you have to do:
