Long live the Swedish!

Here it homage to our friends across the pond. Our very first international collection of sentiments! Its our way of saying thank you for your support and please join in on the fun with a collection of words and sentiments that you are sure to find useful. This sheet is already at the plate maker and should begin shipping on or before this coming tuesday.

A special thank you goes to the ever talanted and popular Nina for her help with not only the translations of some of our favorite sentiments into Swedish but also for her volunteering her time and creativity to offer other sentiments as well. THANK YOU!!

This sheet has over 75 words and phrases. It is 8 1/2 x 11 size uncut deeply etched red rubber. Several of the sentiments will coordinate with the DoodleFactory collections we have released.

But here is the coolest part.....

.... DRUM ROLL....

We are going to give away the first sheet of Swedish sentiments FREE in our first ever INTERNATIONAL BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY!!! (((((APLAUSE)))))

OK so what do you have to do? Its simple... you have to do 2 things.

FIRST, you need to promise you will SPREAD THE WORD and tell every swedish stamper you know that we are running a blog candy giveaway and second,

POST A COMMENT TO THIS THREAD and tell us what sentiment is your favorite!

On Monday we will draw a random winner and they will get this sheet sent to them FREE OF CHARGE!

Make sure you leave your email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner! (if you forget to leave me a way to contact you then I will be forced to pick a different winner, and neither of us want that to happen do we!?)

But dont worry, if you dont win you can still purchase your stamp sheet on our website or thru Jane's store ScrapAddicted in Loberod, Sweden. She is now selling our DoodleFactory line and will soon be carrying the new sentiment sheet!

I know what you guys here in the USA are thinking.... Im leaving you out right? NOPE, not true. I promised you a blog candy and you are going to get one. We have TWO NEW TROPIC SETS of sentiments heading to the plate maker tomorrow! Tomorrow night I will load the new sets to the blog for you to check out. And on TUESDAY I will post the blog candy and its going to be GOOOOOOOD!!! So stay tuned!

Nina said...

Wow!! Thank you Tracey for having this giveaway - so very generous of you!

First, I have to say THANK YOU all for your sweet comments about me, it really warms my heart. ♥

Makes me all giggly to see how popular these Swedish sentiments seem to be. I cannot pick a favourite sentiment, but
"Och så levde de lyckliga i alla sina dagar" is probably the one I'm going to use first - I need it for a wedding card! ;)

Tracey - You don't have to enter my name for the competition, but of course I'm going to do my best to spread the word anyway!

Tjohalia said...

Tack för att du finns, is my favourite. Says a lot and can not be said too often.

ANNAANNA said...

I love the frase "I dag är hela världen dum, kom så rymmer vi". Thats a rubberstamp I know for sure I´d have loads of use for.


lundstromanna(at) said...

Absolutely amazing ! Why hasn't the swedes made something like this....? My favourite is: "Idag är världen dum, kom så rymmer vi", because normally the phrases on stamps are so sweet and cute, but this one really explains that it isn't like that always, in a short, cathing way.

Inola said...

Great stamps! I found several sentiments that I haven't seen on stamps before - so I just love this sheet. I will most certainly spread the word about this news :-D

Julle said...

"Tiden bara flyger iväg!" is my favourite. But they're all great! Very useful stamps :D

Nina said...

I like the "Inte vacker men sällsynt" as it feels like very much "me"!

Annie said...

This is great!!

My favourite is : "Tack för att du finns". I think this is something that we should say more often to eachother... Don´t you think so to?


Inola said...

Great stamps! I even found a few sentiments that I have never seen on stamps before. The one I like the most is "En liten fågel viskade". Good luck!

Nina said...

This is soooo perfect! And all of the sentiments are really useful if you ask me, but my absolute favourite is Du rockar mina sockar.

Karin B said...

Oh, they look great! My favourite is
"Du rockar mina sockar". Cross my fingers and hope to win!
