Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I want to mention first, that I have sent all of the templates out for the Felt Bird that was in the previous post. If you requested it and have not received it, email me and I will get it to you. I think that I sent one to all that requested it, but I could have missed someone so don't hesitiate to ask again. Thanks to all of you for the nice comments also-- you make me smile! Have fun making your own little birds.
Next, we've been given the okay to post about some of the new product debuting at CHA for Creative Cafe. So exciting! Creative Cafe partners with AccuCut Diecutting System to manufacture wonderful dies that you can use for scrapbooking and papercrafting. The possiblities for creativity are endless. I think that I've said that before, but honestly it is so true! I've had so much fun working with all of the diecut images that Danelle has sent to the design team. Here are a couple of the projects that I did for the AccuCut booth at the show using the new Butterfly and Scallop dies.
Did I mention how fun these diecuts are? ;-)
The other day I took a couple of minutes(well hours actually) to make a layout. Yes, I actually made a page for a scrapbook! I haven't done that for a few months and it felt good. I have been trying to use older photos on my layouts for my own scrapbooks for awhile now. These are of Cort and Luke from 1999 -- before digital. Yikes! I say that because we have become a world who expects perfection. Perfect photos or nothing, right? Well, I've decided that I sort of like a little imperfection. I think that the style of my layouts shows that anyway, with the distressing and inking that I do. I like the same thing in my home- things that don't show wear and tear, but look even better with a few more chipped up spots. Mix that with some new and I'm content , happy, and comfortable. Sort of the same way that old photos make me feel. What great memories, even with some imperfection.
This layout features Melissa Frances papers, clear stamps, and letter rub ons-- plus a few old favorites like sequins and machine stitching.
Well, I'm off to bed now. More images to come on new product releases. I know that Monday, February 4 is the go ahead day to share Melissa Frances, so if you can check back then I have some beautiful new papers and embellishments to show you :-) Can you hardly stand the suspense??!! Me neither!!
Love to all, Linda
