      Sorry for the delay everyone but we are sick in the house with a bug our daughter brought from pre-school.

      Our sponsor this week is Fresh Brewed, they have a mix of different themes not only coffee ones, but I have to say my favorite ones are coffee related.  Of course I am a coffee lover.  They even have their own challenge blog, so go check it out and Pile It On!



      This week's challenge is Things in 3's - Use three of each card element.  One lucky winner will get 3 images of their choice from Fresh Brewed.

      Challenge #39 - 4 or More Embossing Folders

      Hi everyone!  This week I am so honored to have a really good friend as our sponsor.  I have been part of CropStop's team for a little while now and I have to say that not only you get awesome products at amazing prices but you get the best customer support you will EVER experience!  And did I mention she has the best shipping prices I have ever seen... If your order contains ONLY EMBOSSING FOLDERS OR DIE CUTS it is ONLY $1.50 in the USA, $3.00 in Canada and $6.00 for the rest of the world!


      Unable to find an easy way to store her embossing folders and dies, Haylie-Jo realized there was a void in the market. Not one to wait for someone else to solve a problem, Haylie-Jo created the Pocketz Storage System™ and CropStop was born.

      If your passionate about scrapbooking your memories or making cards, CropStop is your one-stop solution. We specialize and offer an extensive selection of dies and embossing folders by all the popular manufacturers and storage solutions to keep everything organized. Our selection of embellishments and adhesives is continually expanding and we are excited to be the home of the colorful Ribbon Candy™.

      We know you need to stretch your crafting dollars, so visit our newest store addition – the Clearance Section! There’s always something on sale at CropStop.

      And of course there are some items on sale this week:

      25% off all Heartfelt Creations
      30% off all Fiskars Punches
      and we have a MARTHA STEWART OVERSTOCK!!!! sale.

      And guess what GET AN EXTRA 10% OFF (EVEN SALE PRICES) when you use PILEITON in the coupon area on a $30.00 or more order expires Oct 31st.
      Photobucket
      This week's challenge is to use AT LEAST 4 different embossing folders in your creation.  Remember you could emboss an embellishment, pattern paper, aluminum foil, transparencies, metal, foamies.  It could be one of those amazing diecuts that cut and embosses at the same time.
      One lucky winner will receive a $10 Gift certificate from CropStop.  Let's see our wonderful DT's creations!
