Pinterest Winners...

A quick, but exciting announcement today.

Below are the winners of the Pinterest contest.  I chose the characters based on a few things-- taking into account what would make a unique, interesting, and fun character; the cohesiveness of the board; and the photos chosen to describe the character...but even more than that, I kinda fell in love with the descriptions these ladies left for their inspired character.

I had about 10 finalists that were the toughest to go through and whittle down to just the ones below.  I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the time to enter the contest.  It was really fun to see your creative ideas, what you want to see in stamps, and what inspires you personally.

I have listed the (3) finalists and the overall winner below!  Check out their boards by clicking on the names...(And winners, please DO NOT delete your board until after your digi is released:)


This will be a set of two music lovers (I could not decide between them, as they seemed like similar characters, just different genders:)...

Angela Mireles and Debbi Glennie.  

My inspiration for a SC girl: would be a music lover Rockin the Beats on the 1's and 2's turning them wheels of steel. Crate digger indeed, She'd be super cute and super cool and there would be no mistaking this music loving DJ for anyone else. She'd have the cleanest beats equipment by her side and on her ears. All I need is a beauty and a beat <3.

Teenage boys, hoodies, ipods, dr dre's - sitting chilling out in a world of his own.

And my second finalist,

She's married to a romantic farmer. mom of boys. Her world is tractors, cows, hay, dirt, bugs and bandaids. Wearing her long hair in a braid that's coming loose or just piled on her head. Her jeans are torn and her shirt dirty but that's how she rolls. She loves grubby little arms around her neck and freckles. Her world is rustic romantic country and she loves every minute.

And for the GRAND PRIZE, their own character digi and a year's worth of SC on the house:)...

My character is the shy girl who has deep secrets of breaking out of her shell and being all she wants to be. She's a bit nerdy, but mostly a very sweet and beautiful soul. She loves books and learning and all things fuzzy and furry. She loves to feel beautiful, but tends to keep that hidden.. although her secrets run deep. Who knows what she will become one day when she finally breaks free!!??

Thank you again for the all the entries!  This was a really fun contest on my end because I love to see what inspires my followers.  I will be releasing the new characters on Friday, January 11!  Be sure to mark the release on your crafty calendars...should be a fantastic group of new digis:)!

  31. Thank you krista! Im ecstatic being a semi finalist! more importantly my inspiration came from my cousin who was a dj and passed away unexpected in late October. Back then i looked high and low for a cute dj image to put on a poem i wrote that i put in the casket. This means so much thank you and thank you again! I cant wait to create something memorable with it.
