Exclusive vinyls and a HUGE thankyou..

I have mentioned before that I am very lucky to have been given exclusive rights to produce vinyls from images belonging to both Treasure Box Designs and Bugaboo Stamps..  but I haven't had the chance to properly thank them both for the opportunity..

SO.. I am taking this opportunity to publicly thank Dina of Treasure Box Designs and Jodie of Bugaboo Stamps for their generosity and kindness throughout the initial process and for their amazing kindness in allowing me the exclusive rights in the UK. 

I would like to take the time to mention to all you crafters out there, that these are two amazing sites for both paper piecing images and digital stamps.

Treasure Box have some fantastic images both paperpiecing and her images as digital stamps for crafting - that could also be cut by some electronic machines, including the Cougar cutter that I sell - and if you want awesome humourous and cute digital stamps you need to take a trip on over to Bugaboo Stamps. 
*There's a fantastic sale on too*

Also here's a little about the two fantastic owners :)

My name is Dina St.Laurent owner and artist of Treasureboxdesigns.  I graduated with a Degree in Art/Illustration.  I can remember drawing pictures of my Grandma and Grandpa with their little glasses and of course all my many pets. I’ve made cloth dolls, clay sculptures, painted cutesy children’s paintings and handcrafted jewelry.   It’s funny how my style stayed the same with whatever venue I have chosen.

My 14 year old son Nicholas doesn’t share my love of artistic endeavors.  He thinks he’s much to cool for that.  Asking him to go to Michaels with me is like pulling teeth. 

After many artistic, get–rich-quick schemes, I think I’ve finally found my niche.  It keeps me pretty busy but I love what I do!

Jodie - http://www.bugaboostamps.com/home.html

My name is Jodie Mackrell, I am a WAHM of 5!
I live in Pilger, Saskatchewan, Canada.
I am the owner of Bugaboo Stamps, which made its entrance to the digi stampworld in January 2010.
Bugaboo Stamps has a wide variety of digi stamps, from cutesy to sassy characters, with new stamps and freebies being added every week.
Bugaboo prides itself on quality digi stamps and the goal is simple - passing around some smiles and laughter!

So please help to support these two fantastic businesses - and take a peek on over at their sites.

Plus from me a HUGE THANKYOU and hope that you all enjoy seeing the designs in vinyl.

Hugs and happy crafting
