If you haven't heard of my Stamp BOX, get ready, you're gonna love them! They are a new CANADIAN Stamp company, and their designs are FANTASTIC! Made of clear acrylic, with really cute images, they also have a LARGE collection of Fonts and images that are great for titles and journaling on scrapbook layouts too! Oh, and the storage is really cool.... clear cases, and a neat plastic stand that allows you to have them sitting all nicely lined up on your workspace.

Now as if that wasn't enough....yes, there is more...are you ready?

I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected to join the my Stamp BOX design TEAM!!! I first used some of their stamps on some work I did for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, and I loved them, so when I saw the call, I just had to go for it! Thanks to Bettina (the owner and designer) and Cathy (the DT co-ordinator) for the opportunity!

I can't wait to get more images to play with, and I'll be sharing my creations here as soon as I can.

So, what are you waiting for? .. go check out the stamps! The card above is made using the Happy Birthday Set which is a small set and retails for $11.95 CDN.

That's it for tonight, I have to go and work on some more class samples! I've got a workshop scheduled at Cut n' Paste in St. Thomas on February 28th that I need to send the sample for on Monday. We are doing 2 classes, Seeing Clearly: Working with Acetate and
an Acrylic Album: All About ____?

I'll post details and pricing etc tomorrow when I have a SAMPLE to show you.

What's New?

CHA Winter 2009

It's the biggest show for the Craft and Hobby industry, and it's on NOW! in Anaheim, California.

This is the first year in five that I haven't gone... so thank goodness for Sneak Peeks and You Tube - it's ALMOST like being there!

Basic Grey is always a favourite for me (and many others), and this year I'm not disappointed. I really liked Bittersweet that released in December and I LOVE Lme Rickey - great for scrappin' boys! They came out with a card kit too using this line, which I think is really smart.

Click on the pic and you'll be taken over to the Basic Grey Website for a closer look.

Next up? The Ranger booth is always busy, and Tim Holtz is of course the main attraction. He is certainly an incredibly talented designer! Hop on over to You Tube to see what new products he's released this year.

I also really like quite a few of the lines from Bo Bunny. The It's my party is particularly attractive for putting together a quick but really nice Birthday Book using the add on embellishments that they do so well. It would would look great on the Bo Bunny Chipboard Word or Acrylic Albums.

Speaking of Acrylic, I'm working on a couple of workshops featuring this trendy product. One class focuses on Acetate, and how to make your own embellishments, frames, etc, and the other is a completely embellished Acrylic Album. Look back in a day or so for some new class listings.

I am almost done a layout, that I am pretty happy with.... I may even post it later today!
