SCRS Preview: Seattle Chloe!

Hi, crafty friends! It’s time for the final sneak peek for this month’s release at Sparkle Creations! Don’t forget to join us for SCRS’ 3rd Anniversary this Saturday with a HUGE blog hop filled with darling inspiration and PRIZES!

Our sneak peek today is “Seattle Chloe”! All of the new release stamps, including Seattle Chloe, will be available in the SCRS store on Saturday!

This is a bittersweet image for me. I had the pleasure of living near Seattle for the past 3 1/2 years and getting to hang out regularly with Sparkle, and our fabulous Canadian friends Peggy, Spike and Thanh! It’s really hard being on the opposite side of the country from them now, because I miss those gals so much! We still keep in touch through Facebook, but I definitely miss being able to meet up with them in person!

Here’s my card!

Be sure to visit all of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Seattle Chloe. Sparkle will be giving away New York Josh to one lucky person! For a chance to win, you need to comment on all of the designer’s blogs (list below). Then head on over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Seattle Chloe post. You have until midnight EST each day to comment. The lucky winner will be announced on Monday, July 22!
