here's to a new adventure

i really hope that as soon as the dust settles from the move i can use this outlet as a way to give ideas, tips, and tricks to you gals. and for those of you that want to hear a funny story or two about my kids i will put a few of those here as well. so if you have something that you have been wanting to know how to do leave me a comment or shoot me an email and i will walk you through step by step on how to do it. and if i feel fancy i will even take a few pictures along the way.

happy scrapping,

Dates to Remember

Need somewhere to keep all those birthdays and anniversaries? This is just the thing, each page has a month with lines to write in those important dates. The calendar is perpetual so you won't need to make a new one every year! This album will be spiral bound much like the recipe album below. (I just don't have the machine at my house!) Call the store and reserve your spot in this class on Saturday November 21 at 11 am! Hope to see you there!

Thanks Rachael

Mats for the recipe cards are punched so the recipe can be removed when cooking or to read instructions written on the back. (Green paper is just to show the punched paper)

Choose from many Cuttlebug embossing folders to add some dimension to your book.

Come make this book for $25. It would be a great gift for the holidays.

colleen schaan and copic markers

ok first of all, whoever is in charge of this blog needs to be fired. or at least griped at. don't worry i have already taken care of that so no need for you to worry. lol. she is getting her act together as we speak.

the copic markers are one of the hottest items in the paper crafting world. you can do so many things with these markers. they work on a variety of materials and with the 344 colors available the blending options are limitless.
i am excited to have colleen schann come to teach us how to use these markers. below are some samples she sent to the store and they are amazing. i hope when the class is over my stuff looks half this good. she is way talented, click on her name to see what else she has going on.

this one with the little boy kissing the girl is my favorite.
if only i can figure out how to get her name off of these and claim them as my own, just kidding colleen.
i can't wait until october 17th. spots are going fast so call and reserve your spot. cost $45.

abbey road

my mind's eye abbey road is absolutely amazing. they have really outdone themselves this time. you just can't beat this line of paper. i love the feel, the small extra embellishments that are perfect for the finishing touch or that card that seems to be missing something. come check this out because i have a feeling it won't be here long.
