Happy Birthday Red Rubber Designs!!!

One year ago Red Rubber Designs made its debut by opening an online retail store.
If you are unfamiliar with them, here is a clip from their website: Red Rubber Designs LLC is a woman-owned, small business which operates entirely in the U.S.A. Featuring designs from The Angel Company, we offer deeply-etched, quality rubber stamps in an online retail environment.

Congratulations, Pam and Red Rubber Designs, on the completion of your first year in business. How does it feel to be 1 again?

In celebration of this hallmark event I went back through all of the wonderful creations of the current Design Team and picked out one of my favorites from each member to share with you. 

Let's start with my long time friend, Louise whose blog is Kard Krazy.
 Louise and I love all things vintage and this little travel journal shows how nicely she puts together pretty papers and vintagey stamped images along with pockets and tags and other goodies. You can see the inside of this journal here.

Next up is my fellow Texan, Paula-Kay. Her blog is Creative Stamping with Paula-Kay.
Paula-Kay is master of the Copic markers. I'll have to say that I really have hesitated posting any image that I have had to color because my ability of coloring is still at the kindergarten level. More pics of this card are here.

Another vintage and shabby chic lover is Kate of The Scrap Yard.
This journal is definitely "sugar coated sweetness".  It amazed me that she could turn stamped images of confections into shabby goodness. You can get the details on this journal here.

Next we have Diana who you can find getting inky in Wordbirds Nest
Diana has a clean, crisp style that always makes me smile and she has a way with ribbon, too.  Don't you get a feeling of joy just looking at this card? You can find her card here.

And lastly, here is my own favorite from the past year.
This is the cover of an accordion album that I made using lots of stamps and an album kit that contains some of my favorite papers. 
 More pretty papers and stamped images and quotes enhance the vintage photos.
You can see all of the pages here.

If you get a minute, be sure and visit the Red Rubber Designs blog and wish them a Happy Birthday. You might want to wait until after the cake is cut tonight...maybe Pam will share a piece with you!

When you put it all together like that, our DT looks pretty amazing, doesn't it! You did a fabulous job on your album, too.
