Sponsor Spotlight on eyeCandie Creations

It's time to learn more about this week's sponsor, eyeCandie Creations.  Here's a bit about them.
eyeCandie Creations was created in 2012 to bring kawaii (japanese for cute) style stamps to the world of scrapbooking and card making. We are a family owned business based in Colorado. The day-to-day operations are run by me (Jeremy) and my wonderfuly crafty (not the devious type but the paper crafting type) wife, Candie. I am the artist, while my wife is the brains and inspiration. We are both elementary school teachers. The kids we teach are often the inspiration for my creations. We hope to grow into a company that is loved by all and enjoyed for generations.

And here's what some of our DT has for you.


This week's randomly chosen winner will receive 4 digis of his/her choice -- what a great prize package.

Sponsor Spotlight on La-La Land Crafts

Hi crafty friends. Alanna here to tell you a bit more about this week's sponsor, La-La Land Crafts. Here's a bit about them.
"Welcome to your happy place, your crafting La-La Land"
Owned by the dynamic duo of Irina Blount & Eric Berry, La-La Land Crafts has been debuted in July 2009 when they introduced their first character La-La. In August of 2010 they introduced two very special characters to the world, Marci & Luka. We have come to think of them as the ambassadors of La-La Land Crafts. They also have a very sophisticated line called Girlfriends and a fun line of critters. 

La-La Land Crafts specializes in red rubber stamps, digital images and recently added an amazing Die cut line. Their main images of Marci and Luka are without a doubt fun to play with and can be used in so many different settings. That can also be said for all of their images and now die cuts. With so many versions of Marci and Luka you can't help but think of them as your own kids.
Not only do they have amazingly talented owners, but they pride themselves on bringing these images to life with their fabulous design teams. Stop by the La-La Land Blog and you'll definitely be inspired. Each month you can upload your new La-La Land Crafts creations to the Customer Gallery and who knows you just might win a prize.  Did you know that they can also credit having one of the only Kids Challenge Blogs? Yes, kids 16 and under can play along in their bi-weekly challenges for prizes and visit for inspiration.
With a huge following in the UK and the USA, if you're not a fan of La-La Land Crafts, you will be.

One randomly chosen participant this week will win a $10 gift certificate to La-La Land Crafts. How great is that? And now for some eye candy from some of our designers.
