Going, Going – Gone!

It’s the end of July, which means that our current Annual Inspirations Idea Book is about to retire—along with a bunch of amazing products featured inside of it!

Make sure to snatch up these goodies before they’re gone for good!
State & Province Stamp Sets. Stamps! the best time to get these stamps is right now because for every two stamp sets you purchase during the month of July, you get one stamp set of equal or lesser value for free as part of Stampaganza! So get the whole collection (and save!) before it’s gone!

Thin Cuts -All of the Thin Cuts metal dies in Annual Inspirations are retiring! This includes the star shapes, as well as some timeless sentiments for both scrapbooking and cardmaking.

Sea Glass – Our Color of the Year, Sea Glass, is going to be replaced August 1 with a new Color of the Year. Though you’ll still be able to get both the D-ring and post-bound My Legacy™ albums in Sea Glass, the Sea Glass mini Everyday Life™ album, cardstock, stamp pad, re-inker, mini pigment pad, as well as Fundamental Complements that feature this color, will be gone!

 

Our shoulder tote is the perfect size for carrying 12” x 12” projects around town, and the coordinating marker and accessory roll-ups are just the thing for packing around your ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ alcohol markers and embellishments. Now is the time to get organized!
Fundamental Ribbons-In addition to our Fundamental paper packets and Complements, the Fundamental ribbons are saying farewell. We love these ribbons because they can be used on any project—and the colors will be sticking around next year, so they will still coordinate with the new Fundamental collections.

I’ve stocked up, have you!

Christmas cards

It’s only two weeks until Christmas and we just received a couple feet of snow here in Western New York.  I am busy working on my Christmas cards and a picture collage to send to family members.  Close to my Heart is introducing a new Seasonal Expressions next month and I have mixed feelings about moving on to flowers when I’ve just started getting into the Holiday Mood.  Oh well, gotta go with the groove.  Current special is:

New challenge layout! No fooling

IMG_2977

Again, using our paper fundamentals.  These are such great layout papers, subtle but effective.  This sheet is cotton candy and is retired but the new designs are great, can’t wait to use them!  Stamp set used is D1647 Documenting Moments Everyday Life.  Inks:  Pear, Gypsy, Cotton Candy, saddle.  And I used our shimmer trim and this picture just doesn’t do it justice.  This stuff adds so much ‘bling’.  I used Green, Pink, Purple, Bronze, and White.  I also added some of the Kaleidoscope complements along with purple hearts.  Yes this is for a challenge – The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I’m really enjoying the inspiration I find using these challenges.
