Welcome Oct. Guest Designer!


First, I want to take a moment and 
thank all of you for making OJS the 
*total* success it was! 

We plan to work on the prize situation 
this week and we hope to have 
announcements sometime at the end of the week.
As you can imagine, we have a lot to sort through
and lots of names to draw. Also, (totally coincidentally)
 this weekend Jacob and I (and SSS) 
are sponsors of a local (BIG) 
Susan G. Komen event. So, bear with us 
as we make our way through this week... and 
we promise to start shipping prizes sometime 
next week through the week after. 

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming... 

We are so glad to be announcing our guest designer 
for the month of Oct. 

Here is a little bit about Alison in her own words

"Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a Guest DT Member 
of Sweet Stamp Shop this month. I am having a ball 
playing with these adorable images. Thank you so much to 
Julie for asking me and for Nicole and 
the rest of the team for having me.

A little about me.. My name is Alison Spelman, 
I live in Utah with my sweet husband and 2 
of the most amazing children on this earth, 
Stretch 11yrs & Liberty 3yrs.
They inspire me each and everyday.
I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 
1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced 
to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that 
I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. 
I have been published in many magazines, worked for Creating 
Keepsakes as a designer for products sold on QVC, 
and won many contests. I love to think of different 
and creative ways to use a product that 
people would not "normally" think of. I hope 
this month I will inspire you to break out your
 stamps and create something along side with me. HUGS"

We're so glad to welcome such a talented 
lady to SSS. Make sure to stop by 
her blog and welcome her to the SSS 
Sweet Tooth Girls! 

Here is the *amazing* card that she made for 
her debut! ... You're going to love it! 

I think that the gumball machine is so well colored 
and so well thought out. It just makes the gumballs 
POP... and of course a few pop dots never hurt! 

Welcome, Alison! We're so glad you're here! 

I want to remind everyone that our release deals 
are good through this thursday... (I know with the

Big Hugs,
Jacob and Nicole
