6 days left and a give away-Oh Happy Day


The DT call is about to come to an end. So far all the applications are amazingly beautiful and it's going to be so hard to choose. Today I'm sending out confirmation letters, so that you know I got it safe and sound.

Today I had a new blinkie to share.
This year we'll be doing giveaways if I catch it on your blogs.
Simply leave a comment/link here where you posted it on your blog and you could win our newest collection-
  Oh Happy Day's papers.


In just a few days the call will be over and we'll be announcing our new DT gals. Good luck to you all and keep a look out here for more info.

Tomorrow I'll have up the instruction and template for the heart box we taught at CHA.



Just 9 days left.

Hello everyone,

If you haven't noticed we've taken a little break from posting. This is because I'm getting everything lined up for "looking" at all the DT applications. I personally go through every single one of them. I find that this allows me to find new fresh talent and it lets me get to know you all better.

Just a heads up, there are now only 9 days left to apply. To answer a few questions

1) NO you do not have to use GCD product to tryout
2) Yes- we pay for booth work and publications
3) Each month we give out two fun assignments and you have almost a month to work on them
4) Yes we are looking for Layout, card and altered gals and you will most likely never be asked to craft out of the area

I hope this helps. Thanks for all those that have turned in applications and if you have any more questions, leave them here :)



Attention all Scrapbook Stores...

Our paper is ready to ship
woohoo and check out these great deals.



Happy Valentine's Day to all our crafty friends out there!
We hope by now you have heard about our DT call and are thinking to apply. 

Today, I have 3 projects to share using GCD's newest collections. Just simple click on the links below each image and it will take you to the tutorials :)




We hope you have a warm loving day filled with XOXO's

It came and it went. I can't believe that CHA is already gone. I have so much to share about this event and how much GCD has grown. All our collections seemed to be a hit and we met many new friends from around the world. I can't post about everything today, but I will on Monday (next week). I have so many fun photos to share with you all.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting about our newest DT call for our 2012-2013 team search. I hope you all take the time to try out. We are always looking for new faces and talented crafty gals that are passionate about craftying. Make sure to stop by tomorrow to see all the info for the call.

Well, I'm excited for this new year and that we started the year with 8 new amazing collections. Now we just need to fill our DT spots. This year we are welcoming back...
