I wanted to show you how easy it is to paint on Prima's clear paintables using Tim Holtz's Alcohol Inks and a KOI water brush.

Making Memories Fa, La, La

Now I'm walking around singing Christmas songs, thinking about which Christmas goodies to collect for the holiday layouts. Seems funny since it's August, but it seems funny to have Christmas without snow, too. When the kids get older I'd love to go somewhere cold and snowy for Christmas. When you don't live there you don't have to worry about shoveling!
O.K. now I can stop daydreaming and get back to blogging... Look at these glitter letters, not only sparkly, but a pretty typestyle.

Look at these happy Cosmo Cricket papers and extras. I'm going to try and do a Creative Bite using them. It gets harder and harder to do extra videos with a fast crawler, just about walking, girl in the house!

Bazzill not just paper

We've never bought Bazzill paper edges before, but couldn't pass up on these designs with great colors. I like the idea of adding texture and contrast with stamping or dabbing...but solid is easy and nice, and how about their new pom pom and tulle ribbon!

Our 1st Sale!

In our newsletter- just emailed, we have our first sale, 50% off all KI Memories products! We are making room for new KI. We thought this was a good start because who doesn't like bright KI papers or Love Elsie. This company is all about quality papers and doodlies, plus stamps and ink pads! Pick some up before the sale ends Wednesday at midnight.

Don't forget to use code "K50" at the checkout to have the discount applied.

Creative Bite

Simple layout using an older FancyPants overlay. I really just wanted to show how quick transparencies are, add some thickers and chip pieces and you're done.

Basic Grey

Have you seen the Basic Grey's newsletter -Here's the news:
"When BasicGrey’s Urban Couture line was released a few years
ago, we heard an outpouring of, “Wow, I wish I could decorate
my home with that paper!” and “I wish I could wear that!” We
listened, we agreed, and now we’re pleased to introduce the
new Urban Couture fabric!
Designed by BasicGrey and distributed by Moda, there are 40
lush, rich 100% cotton fabrics to choose from, all in the classic
Urban Couture designs you’ve used in your scrapbooks.
You can visit and search “urban couture”
for a sneak peak of these unbelievable fabrics available in
November on the Moda website."
What a fabulous idea and I couldn't think of a better company to have a
line of fabrics. Save a little time to make something fun with fabric, if not
just to add texture to your scrapbooking projects. Make some fabric strips and tie them on your albums like ribbon. It's a nice soft look.

Look for Basic Grey here soon -we have all the collections, plus the Chocolate chip albums with chocolate chipboard letters coming. So many inspirational things in the Basic Grey lines this season, it's exciting.

Monsoon season here, so bugs are expected but - not welcome! This ittle guy I spotted on the pool edge yesterday. It is one thing to know we have them - we see their holes around the yard but, I'd rather keep it a looooong distance relationship.
