12x12 Layout

My goal on this page was to use a white rub-on from DaisyD's. I just love the romantic design, but have a hard time using the whole image and wanted that look. One thing about cutting the image is that you have lots more to play with! Would be great to use when making a greeting card or thank you.

American Crafts - Shoebox Thickers

The blue green Shoebox Chipboard Thickers are just awesome ! 4 layouts in a row using them. They totally brighten up a page. Right now my favorite letters are from American Crafts.

KI Memories

Don't you just love KI! The Surprise Collection - get a few papers with some embelishments (lots to choose from!) and you can have multiple bright fun layouts! I'm going to start on birthdays past - layouts which I was just waiting for the right papers to come along. Shortly I'll post a quick video of the layouts.
The Just Married Collection is soft and sweet. I wish I had a wedding to attend, just to use this line. Wedding or not, I think I'll get the cream/white frosted paper for other layouts. Plus I love the soft pink flower paper with the Lab Kit!
We have the stamps and inks to match these collections in stock !

Crate Paper

We love these Crate Paper lines. Quality, thick and classic designs. You really can't go wrong with these papers and the rub-ons are unique designs with personality. Don't forget to get a can of crateboard letters to finish off your pages.
Crate Paper has matching ribbon which has been delayed until Mid May delivery. Keep an eye out for these, they are nice.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! We are off to the County Fair.

Creative Imagination

Creative Imagination is in. Here are some shots and videos of the new products. We made (2) videos so you could view by collection - without watching (1) longer video. Let us know which you prefer - longer versions of the whole line or multiple short ones? The Narratives die cut edged and scalloped papers are equisite !
Off to grill some hot dogs.
Are hot dogs still legal to eat?
Oh well, I'm having mine on a salad so I guess that's OK.
If I was to really have a good hot dog I would want to be in Greensboro, NC on Spring Garden Street at Yum Yums. They had the best hot dogs-with the works, chili, onions...! If I were there though, it would be a hard decision between Yum Yums and Spring Garden Bar and Grill-where they had the best hamburgers!
Oh, that grill better heat up fast!

New Heidi Swapp

Here are the latest arrivals from Heidi Swapp. The ribbons are the best! I love the stripes and the price. The date stamp is
superb and a "gotta have it" tool.

Autumn Leaves

We made two videos of Autumn Leaves. The 1st video has all the new collections: French Twist, MOD and Foof-a-La with all their new clear stamps, package sizes are 6" x 10". The 2nd video features the 12" x 12" transparencies and the Quote Book #5. If you haven't tried the transparencies, you really should think about it. They are super fast and designs are gorgeous.
Now, for the 2nd video we did enlist a local talent agency. We asked for someone with energy and a sales background. You'll notice in this video we got what we wanted and MORE. Our son Jake was enthusiastic...and sales oriented...What a blessing to have a 6 year old on the set ! French Twist, MOD, Foof-a-La

Coming this week - Crate Paper!

Imagination Project

We just received these stickers, plus other designs. The size of the packages are 5" x 7.5". Mix them with the calendar papers. They look outstanding! We didn't make a video with the stickers - so here's a close-up shot.

We've made changes on our shopping cart. You're now able to read descriptions of the items in your shopping cart. In the summer, we should add pictures of the items in the cart. I wonder why everything takes so long, all little baby steps getting the web toegther. I should have guessed this -it's taking me little baby steps to learn Photoshop Elements 3. I bought Photoshop Elements for Dummies and it's helping. I had to start at the basic -what's the best way to save images. I can do simple alterations now, but look forward to being more creative in the future.
In this photo, we're showing the new Floral Embellishments. We have very limited quanities on the flowers. The papers are from DaisyD's Charles Street Roses and Colonial Dots.
