Hello Ladies!! I've made another set of holiday stamps! This time is focused on Halloween. We have the famous Little Bear and I've added in the birdy finally! The birdy is actually one of my first designs. It appeared in a lot of my print products. But it's birdy's first time to show up on the digital stamp. I'll give birdy a name soon...

The old blinkies don't work anymore due to the linking problem. So I might as well take this chance to make nicer badges Here's the new badges for DT member:

I will make a badge for the sketch challenge later on. I've made 4 sketches in advance so you will have more time to prepare. Please make them according to the sketch# and the date highlighted in yellow. This image below is only for your reference, please do not use this image on your blog. I will provide a better image for you.

As I've mentioned on the email I've sent out last night, I'm planning to have a grand opening sale on the 4th and 5th of September. We will start promoting the event 1 week in advance. I will create a banner for the sale and each of you will attach the image on your CCM posts. on September 3rd, each of you will pick your 3 favorite project you've made so far and make a post and promote the event one more time with the sale image. If you have any questions or suggestions at all please feel free to throw them at me. I would love to hear some ideas from you. =)

Sorry for the long posts ladies! Have a great day!!

**NEW SHOP**

Hello Ladies! First of all, thank you for making all these beautiful projects for me week after week. I've been busy working on the new shop and finally it's done!! If you go to http://www.chichimemories.com , you will see the new look of the shop!

Please spend few minutes to go through the website again and you will know better how everything looks like now.

**NEW STAMPS** FOR AUGUST 16TH, 2010
Here's the new set of stamps. These kids are in costumes because Halloween will be coming up next. I don't want to make them to wear vampire suit... witch suit because I want customers to be able to use these stamps for other purposes too.
Stamps will be sold as singles too:
**NEW SKETCH** FOR AUGUST 12TH, 2010
Sorry Ladies, I will try to post the sketch earlier. Here's the sketch for this week:

Hi ladies!!! Next stamp set is done!! I really like this set and I hope you will too! This time I've decided to only have Freddie and Little Bear! These stamps are more for multi purpose. Friendship, sympathy, greeting... etc. I'm calling this set the "sympathy collection". The image you see below is the collection of 3 stamp sets. If you take a look at the 3 photos at the bottom. You will see that I'm also selling these stamps as small sets.
The 3 small sets. There are so single stamps this time.
Sorry that I'm late for the sketch #11. Here's the sketch on below.

Hello Ladies,

Sorry for the super long wait!! I've been trying to make some changes to the website and nothing worked out properly! It was driving me crazy and made my schedule fell behind... so I'm going to put that plan aside for now...Here comes the next new release stamp set - Summer fun, I'll be creating 1 or 2 more sets of summer fun stamps because there are just too much you can do under the beautiful sun! If you have anything you wish me to put into my next stamp set please let me know!!

The Swing Boy, Swing Girl and Flying Kite Stamps are also sold individually. As you can see, little bear is in the stamps too! I love him soooo much! I'll create a summer stamp for Freddie too!!

Below is the Sketch Challenge #8. Please send me an image of your project 2 days prior to the sketch challenge. Please promote this sketch challenge emphasizing participants may win FREE STAMPS. The prize will be announced on my sketch challenge blog on Thursday. Also for the blog hop challenge (sketch #7), winner will also be announced on the upcoming Thursday, so please remind your readers to visit my challenge blog on that day. =)

There are also few things that I would like to remind everyone. Please try to leave more comments to the CCM blog and CCM Member gallery, the member gallery has been so quiet lately. Please also don't forget to upload your projects to the gallery so that visitors can see your projects even if they've missed out the blog posts. You may add your blog link in the photos if you wish. =)

Here's the schedule for the next 2 weeks:

Hi Ladies,

Blog hop is happening in couple of days and today I'm giving you the final update. (Hopefully I'm not missing anything).
-So we are all doing sneak peek as scheduled.

-Once again, here's the hop order, we are posting on Thursday, June 3rd, 8:00AM PST:
CCM (8:00AM my time) http://www.chichimemories.com
Lorraine (4:00PM your time) http://coldwaters2.blogspot.com/
Jane (8:00AM your time) http://whoopsiedaisy-jane.blogspot.com/
Katie (8:00AM your time, guest designer) http://bothsidesofthepaper.blogspot.com/
Laura (10:00AM your time) http://lilinker.blogspot.com/
Sarah (4:00PM your time, guest designer) http://sarahwrightdesigns.blogspot.com/
Kerry (10:00AM your time) http://kerryischilling.blogspot.com/
Debbie (4:00PM your time) http://debbieeastmancardsimake.blogspot.com/
CCM (8:00AM my time)http://www.chichimemories.com/challenge.html

To confirm your time is correct, go to the world clock to double check. Just to make sure I didn't make any mistake....

Please only make the people before you and the person after you "clickable" so viewers are forced to go through every blog. Eg, on Katie's post, me, Lorraine, Jane and Laura's name will be clickable.

-participant will hop through out blogs. 3 singles stamps will be given out to 3 participant who leaves comments on our blogs during the hop. The more comments to leave, the more chance to win (only 1 entry per blog per person).

-When participant arrives to the last post (CCM challenge), she can participate the sketch challenge to enter the draw. Everyone is welcome to play the challenge, but only cards made with CCM stamps are eligible to enter the draw. For participants that do not have CCM stamps, they can use the FREEBIE stamp.

-participant needs to enter their links of their card on inlinkz so that I can do a random draw. End date of the challenge and other details will be posted on the CCM Challenge.

What to say in your post. Just simple things like... how much you love CCM.. LOL what you did with the sketch challenge.... just like what you do with your normal posts.

Please let me know if I'm missing anything... 

Farewell to Laura
There's also a upsetting news to share with everyone. Laura is going to leave our team after this blog hop due to personal reason. Thanks for making all these beautiful cards for CCM and thank you for all the support you've gave me. I'm so glad I've met a friend like you. I'm sure I'll still see you around in CCM... right? =) Take care and good luck in everything Laura! *hugS* We're keep in touch for sure!!

I'm looking for more talented ladies to join the team. I'm spending lots of time looking at blogs =) If any of you girls have any recommendation, please let me know~
 
Hey girls! Sorry I'm late for the schedule this week! I've been so busy this weekend.. I know I haven't post up the sketch #6... I'll post it now... I know it's too late.. so it's ok you decide to skip this one. I will be moving the sketch challenge section to somewhere else, so it won't be in the CCM community anymore, the community will be just member gallery and for others to chat. The sketch challenge will be a individual section(more like a blog format) and I will use inlinkz to let participant to submit their work (just like all the other challenge blogs... )... :)
Picture
Here's the new schedule. I've added Debbie in! YAY!!!! So next week it's is going to be a FUN week!! We are making cards as usual, BUT since there's no stamp release next week, we can pick any CCM stamps to make a card! YAY, and we're making a card for the sketch#7 (blog hop) too!! You can use any CCM stamp of your choice too... You can put like... 10 different CCM stamps on a card if you want... LOL.

I'm thinking maybe we should do a sneak peek for the blog hop card. For Me, Jane and Debbie, we can do the sneak peek with the regular CCM post. Kerry will be doing sneak peek on Monday, Lorraine will be doing sneak peek on Tuesday (see calendar if I'm confusing you, I know I am...LOL) Kerry and Lorraine, please let me know if you think this is too much posting to do, I will rearrange the schedule.

Laura has told me her situation and she is not able to make 2 cards in a week for me. So Laura is going to make only the card for the blog hop. Laura are doing your sneak peek on Wednesday, as usual. If any of you girls are not able to commit to the schedule, please feel free to discuss with me. =)
