Lets all do the hop! (blog hop that is!)

Save the date!

We would like to invite you to visit with us on February 7th for our first ever DoodleFactory new release blog hop!  

What's this all about?

Irene thought it would be fun to put the design team to work creating some super cool brand new projects with our brand new release!  And since this release is a whole lot different than what we have done in the past we thought we should do something special to mark its arrival into the stamp world! We are so excited to see what you think of it and we really CAN'T WAIT to show it to you. 

So what you need to do is stop back here on February 7th (after 11am EST) and you will find a list of our designers blogs.  Start at the first name on the list and visit her blog to see her fun new release project(s) she will give you the link to the next designer's blog and you can pop in over there to see the next great project and so on and so forth down the list it will go! 

You are going to want to visit all the blogs because one of them will be giving you some information on some delicious blog candy.   

What is it?  Well... you will just have to wait and see!  So mark your calendar, save the date, stick up a post it, or write it on your hand but do whatever you have to do to be here on February 7th for our first new release BLOG HOP!!

Well, we are only 10 little days into this new year and it has already brought about lots of news! We have to say farewell to three of our designers Sam Morris, Valorie Wibbens and Rose Ann Reynolds. Their beautiful and inspiring cards will be greatly missed, but we wish all the best for them in the future.

We have had several new releases just issued with several more on the way. We are sponsoring 3 different challenge blogs in the coming weeks (Stamp Something, Card Positioning Systems, and 2Sketchs4you) We also have an exciting blog hop in the works with a very different new release on the way!

But most importantly we have the pleasure of adding three new enthusiastic people to our design team.

It is my honor to tell you that guest designers Lydia Fiedler and Lori Tecler have joined our design team on a full time basis and we are excited to be able to bring in a new fresh talent Kathy Daume' from who has also accepted a position on our team. You have seen Lydia and Lori's cards in the gallery from time to time and we are thrilled they will be more frequently sharing their clever and creative cards with us!
Here are links to Lydia and Lori's current cards from our gallery:

And here is a sampling of the fantastic projects Kathy Daume' has made.
You can see for yourself why we needed her to join our team!

(Christmas that is!)

This is Kathy's card for the Clearly Cool Card Challenge (all submissions coming soon!)

Isn't it COOL!

Lydia, Lori and Kathy will be sharing their newest creations with us shortly.
We are all looking forward to seeing what they come up with!

We are so pleased to present the newest additions to our DoodleFactory family.... VALENTINE REMIX ~ SWEETS N HEARTS ~ SWEET ON YOU AND VALENTINE SENTIMENTS!

Valentine ReMix might look a little bit familiar to you guys. The Original DF valentines set (still available) has characters of a smaller stature. So for those of you who already have the original set fear not, these new fellows will still coordinate with the original set! Irene and I decided that we really wanted full sized larger characters to match the rest of the Doodle population. But we didn't want to just release the same images in a larger size so Irene doodled us up some new versions of last years favorites.

Visit the website to order all the new images. All the sets are available for order now and will begin shipping in about 7 business days.

Need some inspiration... We loaded several cards in the gallery:


Here is what you need to do:

First, and this is REALLY IMPORTANT... you need to SPREAD THE WORD about our candy.
How can you do that?
-Post a comment on your blog
-Post a message on a message board
-Send an email to your STAMP or SCRAPBOOK related friends or groups.

Did you know we really do check that you have spread the word?

So you're going to need to prove it.

How can you do that?

-When you post your candy comment on this thread be sure to put a link to the direct post on your blog. Dont have a blog? What are you waiting for? It's all the rage and free to set up. (You can get one right here: ) All the cool kids are doing it.

-Dont want a blog? Just BCC us the email you sent to your friends:

-Email the link to the message board you posted on:

-Or have your friends tell us that you sent them to us when they post their comment.

We really do check.
Did you know that for our last blog candy we had to redraw our winner several times before we could find someone who really did spread the word. (Hey, you're about to win over $40 in FREE rubber and we cover the shipping too! It's worth the extra effort!)

-No purchase necessary.
-Post a comment on this thread from now until January 6th, 2009.
-We will announce the winner on or before January 9th.
-One entry per person.
-Please provide in your comment some way of contacting you if you are the winner.

Don't want to wait for the contest to order? No problem. Order anytime and if you are lucky enough to win you can choose other unmounteds of equal value!

And without Further interruption... May we present...

DoodleFactory Sweets N Hearts

DoodleFactory Valentine ReMix

And some nice sized sentiments to go along with them:
