August Newsletter

You will be amazed by the newest products in our new Annual Idea Book and how you can combine them with our Seasonal Books! Enjoy!
Close to my Heart
It's Here! It's Here!

The new idea book is here! The long wait is over!

One of the first things you will notice when you hold this book in your hands is, that it is a bit thinner than before. That is because, we have moved all of our themed papers into our Seasonal Expression books. But you won't believe how many different Fundamental Papers we carry now. They will cover any season or occasion you may have. Along with our compliments we offer now, you will be able to scrapbook anything you would like. We have added tons of ribbons!

Of course any of those items are just wonderful for making cards - I love making cards. We have added card kits. In my blog, I highlighted just a few things that are new. I will try to highlight some of the new items in each of my upcoming newsletters each month. 

We are also saying goodbye to are rolling tote - if you don't have it yet - you may want to consider it.
The colors retiring will be: Gypsy, topiary, pear, honey, cotton candy and hollyhock - so if you like our paper or inks in those colors - get them now :)

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
