A Sneak Peek at AWESOME things to come!

I thought I'd let you peek at a new product featured in our upcoming Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  This catalog will go live in August.  You can get your hands on it at my open house on Thursday, August 1st, 5 to 8 p.m.

You can make this necklace with our new Fabric Necklace Kit (ONLY $14.95!!!).  I'll be offering a workshop for it in August or September, so stay tuned for more!  If you have friends who aren't really into papercrafting or scrapbooking but LOVE jewelry, let them know that we've expanded our product line to include embellishments and jewelry bases so that they can make their own unique necklaces, bracelets, head bands, hair clips and rings.  We've got something for EVERY type of crafter!

July Club Projects

Here's a look at our projects for July clubs.  I have two clubs meeting Monday, July 15th, 10 a.m. or 6:30 p.m.  If you'd like to come join us this month, just let me know and specify whether you want to do the scrapbook layout or the cards. 

Scrapbookers will be creating a two-page layout with the Surf's Up paper.  This layout should work really well with any beach or pool photos you might have as well as general "fun in the sun" events.  I added quite a few stamped images to my layout. . .I'll let you decide what things you'd like to add to yours.

Card makers will get to play with our July Stamp of the Month, Sweet Life.  We'll make a couple of "fruity" cards and, this month, I think I'll teach you all how to make the sunburst card that I did back in June for my Dream Pop class.  This is such a cool technique that EVERYONE should learn!

I made the peach card with some scraps of Buzz & Bumble paper as well and Kraft cardstock.  The peaches are stamped in Cocoa Pigment Ink and colored with Sorbet, Buttercup and Olive markers.
On the cherry card, I stamped the cherries and the saying in regular black ink and colored them with our Olive & Hollyhock markers.  I put a layer of Liquid Glass over the cherries to make them look shiny and rounded. . .turned out really cute!  The paper on the card is from the Dakota paper pack.

Here's the sunburst card that I'm talking about.  We may make this one as well as another a different paper pack.

In the month of July, you can get the Canvas Art Workshop on the Go Kit (G1062)--normally $39.95--for only $19.95.  Now that's a steal of a deal at half price!!!  You can see the one I put together in the second photo. . .this project went together really quickly!  This would also make a wonderful gift.   The only supply that is not included in the kit is ink for the stamping (did I mention that the kit comes complete with a stamp set?).  I recommend a Chocolate or Cocoa (dark brown) pigment ink.  The kit includes several chipboard photo mats and embellishments, so if the blues/reds don't work with your photos, you can choose the yellows and greens.  I predict that they'll run out of these awesome kits before the month is over, so order today!  You can order on my website,
