Creativity Sparked

All these new Tim things always just spark me into creating. Here is a sample of what I have been doing.
These cards were made using the new Sizzix dies of Tim's, some kraft glassine, perfect pearls mists, kraft resist paper, Tim's embossing folders and distress stains.
First let me say the distress stains work great on the kraft resist papers. I also loved using them on the edges of things. The kraft glassine paper is very cool. Use the perfect pearl mists on them and the color beads up, so use a heat gun to dry. When you emboss or fold this paper the design shows up lighter. Really fun to play with. These cards are just a sample of a future class.

Make sure you come in to check out all the new things. Tim's crowded attic paper stash, and stickers, all the new ideaology trinkets, and the printers tray. We also got in some new colors of stickles, and liquid pearls. The pearls now come in some bright fun colors, and summer colors of stickles are in. These both are great for those finishing details. We also got Tim's stamps in this week. I am lovin the new design for his stamps. The image is on the foam side so you can see where you stamp. Very clever! Check out the set called "Reflections". Pure genius! This set stamps text or script backwards, for kissong other stamps with or using in the embossing folders. This way the final image come up forward. I LOVE this set. I'll have samples soon!

Check out the upcoming classes on the calender. Sam created a 7x7 album from the new My Minds Eye Stella and Rose line that is a beautiful book to hold your memories in. I have the fun Steampunk layout, and Lisa has a card class good for birthday celebrations.

Come in and see us. Let us know you follow the blog.

It has been a while, so let me fill you in on all the things we have coming up here. This Saturday is the All Day Crop! These crops have been very popular. It's great to have the day to get all caught up with the holiday and winter layouts. I had so much fun last month getting to know all of you through your layouts. I look forward to seeing all the creativity fly around this Saturday.
