I have a bunch of things to do with you today in this post including reviewing our September release and announcing prize winners, announcing prize winners of our Monthly Meetup Challenge and MORE!!
Let's do the MORE first, shall we? We shall!
I'm super excited to let you know that we've been working behind the scenes to improve our website searching which now makes it much easier for you to find the items in our store that you're looking for when shopping with us. You can now search by holiday for example to see everything in our line that can be used for a holiday. Or you can be more specific and search Halloween and find everything in our store for Halloween. It seems like something that we should have had already and you'd be right, but better late than never! We're always looking for ways to improve and I'm just so happy that we've been able to make this implementation. Give it a try! Head to our site and search Halloween to see what we mean.
Also happening behind the scenes here is a major overhaul of our Wholesale Program. If you have a local brick and mortar store here in the US that you love to shop at please tell your shop owners that you'd love to buy our products in their store. And if you're an international customer who would prefer to buy our items locally and avoid costly Customs fees and duties please tell your local shop owners that they should check back with us because our Wholesale program is better than ever! Yay!
Moving right along......let's take a look once again at our September release and the fab projects made by our designers! This is always my favorite post!
I know! Everything is really amazing, isn't it? I say this every time but I find these posts with all the projects together so inspiring. I always run into my craft room after these posts.
Our entire release is still available but with lots of low quantity items so if there is something you really want head to our store to get yours today!
Of course we have some WINNERS to announce! YAY!!! We're giving away three $15 gift certificates for you to spend however you like at Lil' Inker Designs!

Let's have a look now at the winners of our September Monthly Meetup Challenge!!!!!! (Lots to do today!)
We have two winners.....first up is Ceal Pritchett with this gorgeous project! Have a look...
I think Ceal did a beautiful job here with the Colors of Fall inspiration. I just love how she's painted our Spring Flowers Die Set and cut our Thanks Word Die from shiny gold! Just lovely!! It's soft and beautiful!
Next up is Jill Norwood. Jill used a FABBY combo of goodies to achieve her Colors Of Fall inspired look.
I love the Circles & Diamonds Stitched Pattern Die with this lovely watercoloring and our Flags & Tags Dies and Stamps really take center stage here. Jill also used our Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles to size down her focal panel. Isn't this so pretty?? YES!!!!
Congratulations, Ladies! You have each won a $25 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your shopping code and use the subject line September 2015 MMC Prize Winner and I'll email you back so you can get shopping!!!!
Now, believe it or not, we are already gearing up for another release which will take place on October 8th and will be FILLED with some pretty amazing goodies for Christmas and even some additional goodies for Autumn that you won't want to miss.
Speaking of Autumn.......(but wait there's more!) Yesterday, we re-leased some popular items from Fall 2011 that we just wanted to freshen up a bit.
Our Acorn Die is now a die set of three acorn sizes with a new and improved shape and two leaves! How ca-ute are these??
We've also refreshed the companion Nuts About You Stamps!
We gave you a full stamp of the acorn bottom and top, made the fun faces a little bit larger and updated the font of this set but still kept it feeling fun and quirky. We've also improved on the sentiments just a bit. We think you're going to love this new and improved set which can be used for birthday cards, love cards and more in addition to cards for Fall!
Both of these items are available NOW!!!!
Check out this cute project from Chrissy Larson using these new goodies!
Ok, everyone! That will do it for today's big, huge post! I'm off to re-fill my coffee, ditch the pj's and get ready to celebrate a family birthday today! Enjoy your Sunday and we'll see you VERY SOON!!!!!!
