Everyone into the pool. It is going to be a flip flop kind of day!

TA DAH!

While you are awaiting the new catalog, let me introduce you to the

New In Colors for  2017-2019

 

Been cleaning out my craft room and this picture says it all. I am really not a horder just did not get around to gettting rid of my favorite papers until I completely pulled my craft room apart to get ready for my Retired Sale. Most papers have been cut down to 6×6 to make it easier  to transport.

We will be creating 4 beautiful projects that can be used for more than one occasion such as Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Weddings or just because.

I am so excited to share the Falling in Love Suite,  a marriage of romance and shabby chic as the Designer series Paper features bokeh patterns- a blurred look created by out of focus, clustered shapes. The embellishments are just the right finishing touches to add to your beautiful cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Beautiful,how about the new Beautiful You Stampset 143637? This set allows you to be very creative using our new watercolor pencils and imagination to create stunning works of art.

 

Using the So Deatiled thinlits, 142751 and the Falling In Love Designer Series Papers, 142788, Shows the beautiful possibilities in our February class cards. The Beautiful You Stamp set helps to create a vintage look for any occasion. Using Pearls, lace and the newest thinlits and doilies will truly enhance the designs you will create in class.

In two more designs I will showcase the foil paper, stitched framelits as well as the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to bring a whimsical look to a very pretty design that can be given to either gender.

 

 

 

The silver foil and background Designer Series Paper gives a very dreamy feeling to a simple card. I love  how the silver foil makes the card pop!

 

 

Lastly another pretty design will come from the Annual Catalog’s Floral Phrases Bundle 142355

People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they aren’t “luckier”. They simply recognize and see more beauty in their lives. People who count their blessings are generally happier and healthier than people who don’t. If you ever feel as if anything in your life isn’t “enough”, try practicing an attitude of thankfulness. You might realize how good you have it, after all.

When I make a card, I realize the beauty I have when feeling my papers and ink between my fingers, the sound of the blades precisely cutting my papers, all my senses are working in tandem. My mind continues to work. I will continue to inspire, create and share with you.

sneak-peek-novemberHere are the cards for November. They are colorful. Using some un-traditional colors, some new and old stamp sets, embossing powders, new papers and as well as ribbons and threads.

Also in use will be beautiful acetate papers.

Not enough to peek your fancy, come for Part 2 on December 3. You can actually sign up for both classes at the same time.sneak-peek-decemberSpotlight on Stamps Sets!

The wilderness awaits is a stamp set for that masculine card you are always needing to make.

I hope that your time off has been relaxing . I know for me I really needed a break. The transfer from old catalog to new, Open House Prep and my volunteer work all came at the same time and I was pooped.

thoughtful branches hyrangaI don’t know whether I fell in love with the Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies or the Thoughtful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set first.  The dies and images transcend traditional, modern and holiday (for example, Christmas, Valentine’s Day).  And who can’t help but adore the delightful font of the sentiments?
