WOW Flowers

Thought I would give you a sneak peek at one of the stamps sets and punch that will be in the new Fall and Winter catalog coming out on Aug. 11th. The punch can make a scallop border as long as you want. This will be great for scrapbook borders and greeting cards. It is so easy to use. Can't wait to show you.

Card stock and ink pads used are In color from the Spring and Summer catalog.

Well Worn Alphabets

Haven't posted a scrapbook page in a while so I thought I would share the one I just completed for my Son's Amateur Golf year. The page uses the current In Color 12 x12 paper, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and River Rock along with Whisper White. Ink used was Basic Black. Accessories used were Hodgepodge hardware and the Photo Corners punch. I wanted the scrapbook page to highlight the photo of Scott at the 1st tee. I think my husband, Doug took a great photo at the 1st tee.

Let me know what you think!!

Technique Classes Postponed

I am sorry to say that I need to postpone having monthly technique classes until Sept. We are in the middle of redoing our basement due to the flooding in early June. We plan to have it complete by August 23rd. It has to be complete because I scheduled the carpeting to be laid on the 20th and 21st. Starting in Sept. the technique classes will focus on gift ideas for Christmas, Halloween, Christmas cards and gift tags. So please be patient with me and I will have a list of the classes and dates by the first week in August. I will continue to post card making ideas on a weekly basis. Stay tune.

Thanks for your support.
