Welcome to the Queen Kat Designs blog hop. If you've just wandered in, make sure to start back at the beginning at the QKD blog so you don't miss any amazing projects. If you're here from Lara's blog than you're on the right track.

This week's challenge is a free-for-all!!!! So, instead of creating a brand spanking new card.....I thought I'd do a 2010 year in review. It's been an amazing year on the QKD team and I can't wait to share all the excitement of the upcoming year with you.






If you want to join us for the excitment, QKD is hiring new DT members. All the details can be found at the blog post here.

Sentiments Challenge

Happy Saturday!!!!!!! Are you all getting ready for the upcoming holiday madness? I'm sure not. I still have our Christmas cards to make and get sent out today. But since I've been re-organizing my studio there's still a bit of work to do in there before much cardmaking can actually get done.

The card I have to share with you today is for today's Sentiments Challenge. It's a color challenge using red, green, and white. I decided to use the North Pole image from the "Holiday Images Set". I colored the stripes with Copics and added Diamond Stickles to the snow.

To play along all you have to do is link up your red, green and white creation to the blog post at the Sentiment's blog. Easy Peasy!!! You have until the end of the month to play along with each of our weekly challenges this month. There's a $10 gift certificate up for grabs for one random player this month.

Happy Stamping,

Sentiments Release Day Hop!!!!

It's time again.....it's Release Day at my digital stamp store "Shannon's Sentiments". And we're going a hop to celebrate. If you're here from this month's Guest Designer's blog - Patti Gilliam than you're on the right track. If you're just popping in make sure you start back at the beginning on the Storefront blog so you don't miss anything and for a view of the 3 sets releasing today.

I've had a blast first creating and then creating with these 3 sets!!!! I went a little crazy with the creating, so stick with me here.



My first cards combine the Winter and Holiday image sets. These are super quick cards that just make me happy!!!




This next set of images uses the new "Personal Planner" set. I was so frustrated by never being able to find a planner set that fit all my needs. I've settled for too long. So, I created my own. It has 18 different unchangeable sections!!! How amazing is that, right?! I can finally have just want I want....and you can to.



First I created the pages I'll be using daily. It's a 2-page per day layout with lots of room for jotting down to-do lists, my meals plans, and quick notes. Each page is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" but can easily be scaled up or down depending on my needs....or my mood. I have planner binders in lots of shapes and sizes.

The second is a weekly view using 2-pages per week. I like this layout for those lazy days of summer where my weekends tend to be busier than the weekdays and there's lots of vacation and holiday time.

This next one I created for the busy mom....that needs to let everyone else in the family know what's going on at a glance. It's a week's look one one full sheet of paper. You could even divide up the days into different schedules for households with super busy schedules.




Now that you've seen the sets, and the design teams amazing creations, hop on over to the store and save 20% using the coupon code "" which is good until Dec. 8th.



Don't forget.....there's a weekly challenge on the Storefront blog every Saturday for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate once a month!!

I've also added a ton of handmade cards to the store as well. Buy 2 Get 1 free!!!! Simply add the name of the card you'd like for free to the comments section at checkout and it will be included in your order. Free card must be of equal or lesser value than the least expensive card in your cart.



Happy Stamping,
