Inspiration Flourishes

I have had this set, Inspiration Flourishes, for awhile but have done nothing with it ... then along comes Nancy who had us use it at our last team meeting. 

Fabulous design Nancy!

I played around with the technique today and here's what I came up with, same design (why mess with it?!) but with different colours - Ruby, Hollyhock, and Pixie.  I also used a sentiment from Seaside Greetings - what a great set that is ... along with wonderful beach images, the sentiments are so versatile.  Other products used were out Scalloped Border punch, Black ink, and Red Shimmer Trim and our new Score board.  I also used our Sparkles Assortment and coloured them with our new marker, R5 (Cherry Pink).  Lovin' these alcohol markers!  

Have a fabulous day!

Stamper in Paradise Indeed!

Well a week or so ago I was ... still in Paradise, just not so close to the beach!  LOL!

Here is a card I made for my fabulous hubby who had a birthday while we were away.

I used a lot of our new product but didn't write a single thing down - bad me!  I was just trying to get it done before we left!  

I see Treasured Friendship, Seaside Greetings, our new markers were used to colour the shells, and I used our new ink colours as well.  The Happy Birthday came from my stash.  I also see Lagoon Hearts washi tape, and Ruby Chevrons washi tape.  And some Sparkles bling and Silver Shimmer Trim!

Have a wonderful day and I hope you are at, or close to, a beach somewhere - there's simply no place like it!

Happy August!

Just a quick post to let you know the new catalogue is up and online here!

Lots of new product that I'm so excited to get my hands on and I will have lots of projects to share with you in the coming months and I'm sure you are going to love it too!  (please note that the Cricut cartridge won't be available until early September as Provocraft is having issues producing it for us ... the few projects I've seen made with it for the Convention in June however are amazing so it'll be well worth the wait!)

New Stamp of the Month, What a Hoot! is so cute - it is $19.75 or just $5.00 with a qualifying order of $50 or more.

If you love pocket scrapbooking, you are going to love our campaign for August, check it out
