This is a month-long challenge, and the theme is...Christmas! What else?!? :-) With most of us already crafting for Christmas, this should be a super easy one to play along with!

Naturally some of our teamies chose to play. We hope that you find some inspiration from them here today.

Time to Bake Some Cookies

December is here and that means we get to introduce you to another great stamper!  Our Guest Designer for December is Kathleen Benedict.  Welcome Kathleen!!!!

For her first creation Kathleen used Baked With Love which is so timely since it's the time of year when we all love those yummy baked goodies!!!  Kathleen is not only inspiring us to make cards...but make cookies too!

Here's a bit about Kathleen (as we get to know her this month):

I originally started stamping for scrapbooking and got into making cards to utilize my supplies.  A friend told me about digital stamps and I fell in love with them.  I love that you can resize them, and I have found that I love coloring them.  Plus I love having something useful to send at the end of the process. I keep my cards pretty simple and almost always do an A2 size as I mail my cards away.  For that reason my cards are low profile and not too fussy.  Clean and simple probably best describes them.

You can find more of Kathleen's creations by visiting her Splitcoast Stampers Gallery.

Come back next week to see what she has in store for us...she might just be using a cookie.

Hop Along With Us & Win!

Happy December! It's a brand new month, and what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop?!? This hop is a little different than our usual. This month we are proudly sponsoring the quarterly blog hop at the House of Cards challenge blog, where all of their hop creations are centered around this lovely inspiration photo.

If you participate in their hop, you could win one of several prizes from a variety of sponsors. But we thought, why not make it a true PARTY and offer you a TANDEM HOP?!?

So here's how OUR hop works:
  • Based on the same inspiration photo, some of our designers have created projects to inspire you.
  • You have until 11:55 PM Pacific Time this Saturday, December 5, to visit our participating designers' blogs and leave them some love.
  • At the end of our hop, each participating designer will choose a winner from the comments left on their hop post, and each winner will receive one digi set of their choice from our shop.
  • All winners will be announced here on Monday, December 7th.
Sound like fun? But wait -- there's more!!! When you've completed the hop, be sure to stop back here and leave a comment to tell us so. Those who do will be entered to win our grand prize of a $15 gift code to the shop.

Last but not least, no Deedee's Digis blog hop would be complete without a FREEBIE to kick it off. Our new "Gift of Love" digi set is available to download for FREE in the "Try Before You Buy" area of our shop through December 6.

Wow -- that's a lot of FUN! Now let's get going! Here are the designers to visit. Happy hopping! :-)

Shop Closing December 31

My dear crafty friends,

This last year has been a very challenging one for my family, and it has become increasingly difficult for me to keep up with running a business around the twists and turns of life. Although I'm sad to do it, I have decided to close Deedee's Digis so that I can better focus my attention where it needs to be -- on my family.

So that we can honor our sponsorship commitments, the shop will remain open through December 31, and we will continue to share inspiration here until then. If there are digi sets that you've been wanting, please do order them before December 31. Also, if you have prize codes that you've been holding on to, please be sure to use them ASAP, as I will not be able to honor them after December 31. All of our digi sets are, and will remain, on 75% discount through the closing, so you should be able to get a lot for even a little.

Normally we would have a new Digi of the Month challenge to share with you today, but because we are closing, we have decided not to have one this month. Those who played in last month's challenge, however, should have received a special set, as promised, in your email.

I thank you all for the last six, wonderful years of being able to share digis with you. Although I won't be running the shop anymore, I do hope to continue crafting. You can find my long-neglected personal blog at, where I hope to soon be able to share my personal craft projects again, if you are interested in keeping up. Who much as I love to draw, I might just have a little treat to share there with you now and again, too. ;-)

I wish you and yours a very happy holiday season, and everything good in the new year!

How Will You Get There?

Here's a fun challenge for you: over at the Outlawz CAS (Clean-And-Simple) challenge, they would love to see you craft something that represents the mode of transportation you'd use to travel to see family or friends for the holidays, or any other occasion. Your project must, of course, also be clean-and-simple in style, in keeping with the overarching theme of the challenge. Share your project over there, and you could win some digis for the holidays!

Now, in looking at our digi collections, I felt like we needed something special for this challenge. There are just so many fun ways to travel! So here's what I came up with..."Here Comes Christmas" available in our shop.

Several of our team members had fun playing with this one. Check our their marvelously cheery (but clean and simple!) holiday transportation creations, and don't forget to share your own this week over at the Outlawz CAS Challenge!
