Stampin' Addicts Blog Tour - August 2009

STOP NO. 21 - SIMPLY ADORNED CHARMS
Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Holiday Blog Tour. It all begins on Saturday, Aug. 29th and will end on Monday, August 31st.
This Blog Tour has 22 stops and features a sneak peak of the different stamp sets and accessories included in the Holiday Mini Catalog. There are 40 jam packed pages in the Holiday Mini Catalog sure to suit any of your holidays needs!

I am stop No. 21 on the tour and I am featuring the Simply Adorned Charms. (These are not available to order on Sept. 1st, but will be released soon.) I was one of the lucky winners of the Charming Stamp Set, and a Simply Adorned Charm which was hand-stamped and signed by Shelli Gardner, co-owner of Stampin' Up!. The charms will be available in three sizes, the one I am showing measures 1" x 1-1/4".

A wonderful feature of the charm is that you can make interchangeable inserts and use different ribbons. Simply Adorned Chains in 2 lengths will also be available to purchase.

Here is the first insert I stamped and placed inside the charm.

Barbara, I was a 'yellow swirls' winner too--we squealed when we saw you on the big screen, dancing with the prize package! Aren't these charms going to be the most fun to play with and wear this fall? Love what you created--now I need to get cracking on making some too!

Barbara, I'm afraid you have sold me on the jewelry pieces. The inserts you designed are so pretty. Thanks for sharing!

Lyssa Zwolanek said...

I can't leave a comment because I am undone with jealousy that you own a Shelli artwork. LOL

Beautiful as always Barbara and wow signed by Shelli! Very cool. I think this is fast becoming my favorite new product line and stamp set from the mini. Though it would have been amazing if the hop could have had the new MDS to play with too.

Thanks for joining in and providing another fun stop along a fun hop.
