Crafty Secrets CHA sneek peek

Yay... I get to share with you one of the new products Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage will be releasing at CHA. A number of darling chipboard albums in different shapes. This shape is one of my favorites! The cool thing is ..they don't have to be used as just albums... like this one I did single , and just punched two holes at the top to hang it. Or... you can connect a number of them together to make a swag or garland. They will come with one hole punched..which is great, because if you don't want the hole there, you can just cover it with paper, and if you want more than one hole... it's certainly easy enough to just punch with your standard paper punch ..where every you want it, like I did for this.
I'm working on one of the other sames now.. and I can tell you one thing... it takes Glimmer Mist like a dream! Hope to be able to show you that one soon!

The papers I used on this are from the "Earthy Paper Pad"
The flower dies are from AccuCut. (F1445LC Flowers #6) and (ZIB070 Itty-Bitty-Flowers #3)
See that little lace-looking scallop around the button? IT'S a eyelet stamp from Crafty Secrets! You can't imagine how gorgeous those look embossed!
These words an the border under the flower, are from the "Mini Memories" set.
Inks used .. again... (lol)- my favorite "Chestnut Roan" , CatEye ink from Clearsnap.

Here's a little peek at the two page 12x12 layout class I'll be teaching in KC , Feb 23-25th, for the "Midwinters Fantasy Retreat".

Papers are Fancy Pants Designs. Dies- Accucut. (F1440J Flowers & Leaves #3)
The flowers are cut from Felt and from Clear Acrylic. The clear Acrylic is also from AccuCut.

I decided on a " Summer" theme. I'm thinking we're all needing a bit of that about now, here in the Midwest! lol

I've decided the hardest thing about using Fancy Pants Papers, is deciding which side to use! I love them both so much , I never want to have to glue on side down. ( oh .. the trails and tribulations of a Paper Crafter) lol

If you girls get a chance ... remember the blog challenge each of us are doing over at Scrappy Gourmet. I'd love to have you play along! Here's the info... Vicki Chrismans blog challenge
** Thanks Tera, for playing along... check out her card for the challenge, using three different patterned papers.
I knew I shouldn't have missed a day of blogging ,now I have so much to catch up on telling you about! lol.... Stay with me here...
******** I have to tell you about this fantastic Giveaway that my friend Catherine Matthews Scanlon is hosing right now. She is actually giving away 2 copies of her new book... ART FROM THE HEART!!! I already got mine...because I ordered it right away to make sure I got one, when they first came out...but you ???... YOU should RUN not walk... over there , right now and put your name in for a chance... because that book is AMAZING! Seriously!
We are supposed to be getting more nasty weather tomorrow...ick! I know that I'm staying in tomorrow night to watch American Idol. I don't normally watch it ...but a kid that is from here, that Wes Graduated with is going to be on. I saw the commercial for it , after Wes told me about it. It show them tell him , they want him to move on to the next round and he's freaking out , jumping up and down. Funny Kid. lol It will be interesting to watch.
Okay.. off to fix some dinner. Enjoy the rest of your day!

That chipboard you did for CHA is incredible! I think I stared at it so long I have it memorized. You did a wonderful job on it. You are so talented! It just makes me want to go out and buy it all.

I think our snow, limbs, chairs, etc. have all blown towards you. Whew it was windy!
