Happy New Year!!!

Just a short note from me today to let everyone know that the price changes at Shelly's Images Digi Shop are now complete.  

You will find a very simple tutorial in the top bar here at the blog and also on the main page at Shelly's Images.com explaining how to order and download your free digi stamps.

Once again please keep in mind that our Angel Policy and Terms of Use remain in effect.  Please do not share our digi stamps but do feel free to send your friends over to Shelly's Images to get their own digi stamps.  

As always we LOVE to hear from you!  It helps us know that you are excited about the digis and using this special artwork that means so much to me on your projects.  Let us know what you are making.  And enter those projects in our challenges.

Exciting news for 2014!

We have some very exciting news for our Shelly's Images friends for 2014.

Beginning January 1st (and earlier as we start to do work at the store) all of Shelly's Images Digi Stamps will be available FREE!!!

You heard right.  Every image at our store will be available free of charge to every registered user.  And registering is super easy!

We will continue to have our monthly challenges beginning on the first Thursday of each month.  These challenges will be "Just For Fun" since all of our digi stamps will be available at no charge.  We will choose a winner from each challenge and of course that winner gets a badge to display proudly at their blog.  Shelly's Images digi stamps won't be required to enter our challenges.  However, using a Shelly's Images digi stamp will give you the chance to be featured in our challenge post!!!  We will be choosing some very special projects entered each month using Shelly's Images digis so get those projects in!

And all new digi stamps will be added to the store and will also be FREE!  Any new digi stamps will be announced when our new challenges are posted.  So be sure to follow the blog by email so that you don't miss any new free digi stamps.

Checking out and downloading your free digi stamps is super easy.  We will have a special tutorial on the front page of our store at www.shellysimages.com just to be sure everyone can download images easily.  As always you can email Shelly at shelly@shellysimages.com if you have any trouble at all.  

Please remember that our Angel Policy is still in effect.  The fact that the digi stamps will soon be free doesn't change the rules regarding using or sharing the digi stamps.  Please read through our Angel Policy and Terms of Use.

TTT Winner and December Challenge

Happy Thursday!
Just a reminder that our challenges are now on a MONTHLY basis.  Each challenge here at Shelly's Images will begin on the first Thursday of the month and run through the end of the month.  That gives everyone a full month to play along!  Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete list of upcoming challenges, tutorials, and special events.
AND, the DT will typically be working with a Shelly's Images digi stamp of their choice for each challenge.  That means you get to see lots of different digi stamps each month.  

So...let the fun begin!  To start off we want to announce the winner of our 
November ... Give Thanks Challenge.  

Our "Beary" Favorite project is #34 Judy Rozema from Joy in a Jar.    Judy, we just loved the beautiful simplicity of this card.  And we felt that the card perfectly captured our theme for this challenge. I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher.  Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!

Our December 2013 Challenge is...

  •  Challenge entry ends at midnight CST on December 31st.  Winners of this challenge will be announced January 2nd.

  • Life is busy for all of us here at Shelly's Images. We do projects with SI digi stamps and run the challenges just for the love of the hobby. We don't promise to comment on every entry. But all of the designers will go through the entries and stop by their favorites. If you get a comment from us you will know that we loved it enough to drop in and leave a special note.
We look forward to seeing your creation and thanks so much for joining in our challenge fun!
Your turn ... please enter your creations at the Inlinkz below:

In this video I show you how to create a starry or snowy night sky on your colored digi stamps.
