TSG Sneak Peeks - Penguin Pals




TSG has a big announcement today and it has been soooo hard trying to keep it under wraps!!We are excited to tell you that TSG has joined up with Di Carubia (of Di’s Digi Downloads) to offer you exclusive TSG stamp sets that feature Di’s adorably whimsical illustrations!! For Di’s first TSG stamp set, she has illustrated these penguins that are too cute for words. They can also be combined with a variety of other images from the set for even more versatility and fun!! 

We're so glad you could join us today. If you just happened upon my blog, you'll want to go back to the beginning at the TSG Blog, otherwise you should have arrived from Alex's blog. 



I know for myself that this is a busy time of year and it's hard to keep organized... I like to call my life organized chaos. I can live it but I'm sure it would drive everyone else a little batty... LOL.  So to keep myself a bit better organized, I decided to decorate a journal I bought at Michael's in the $1.50 section.  It already had the great black and white stripes so I decided I didn't want to cover that part up.  Overall, it was a relatively quick and easy project.  I've watercolored the image with my watercolor pencils and then matted it on black cardstock and did the same thing with the Bo Bunny DP.  I then added some ribbon, a button, the sentiment and Voila... all done!! And ready to be thrown into my purse.

The next stop on the blog hop is the amazing Corinna!!! Her power has been out so I'm not sure if she'll be participating or not. 

Penguin Pals is a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 16 stamps and will sell for $18.

Would you like a chance to win the Penguin Pals stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Penguin Pals Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Penguin Pals stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Nov. 27) during the Release Party Chat.
