MARKS Paper Co. is a brand new company and they have an awesome new collection.

This paper looks like fabric but doesnt have the texture and its double sided!! Vintage is coming back in and this paper fits the style perfectly. So much cute paper to scrap and so little time ....

Beginning today, they will be posting cropped photos of their new CHA products. If you think you know what it is, send an email to gjscontests@gmail.com put the sneak peek number in the subject line. (example: Sneak Peek #1). This number will be found in the post about the contest.

You may submit as often as you wish for each sneak peek. If, after the first day, no one guesses the new item, they will post a 2nd hint. And, continue posting hints daily until someone guesses correctly. The first person to correctly guess will win that new GJS product! Once you win, you cannot win again.

Girly Layout

I had some cute pictures of my niece and she is such a girl, loves to dress up and prance around. So... I thought "what paper do I have that is girly?" Well Daisy Bucket of course!! They actually have good boy paper too. Anywho, here is a sample of what my layout using the "Playful Petals" collection.

Cards, cards and more cards

My girl friend Daphna came over yesterday and we got the urge to make cards. Daphna use to own a stamp store so now she mostly likes to make layouts but ... talked her in to coming over and playing with me.

Below are some of the cards I made.

This stamp is my pumpkin lady ... I love her long legs, you can see more of these ladies at American Art Stamps - just look under the artist Karen Stolpher.

This stamp is from the artist Emerson Quillin. I think these stamps are a hoot.

These are my Christmas cards ... I am starting early for my Christmas in July. July is when I start making cards and gifts - it takes me the full 6 months to prepare (LOL). I never end up making enough cards to give out or finishing all my projects for gifts. But I do try .... The first two cards are from the artist Robin Pickens.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these American Art Stamps; I think they are the cutest ever!! You can buy these stamps either wood mounted or cling rubber. I will have some of these cards on sale on my etsy site.

Sneek Peek - Monsters

I have been working with Core'dinations cardstock lately. I really love the versatility of this cardstock, especially for altering and distressing the paper. Here is a pic of my latest project. Notice how you can dry emboss the paper, then sand it and you get a whole different color. Pretty cool stuff.

Father's Day Card

This is a little card I made today for Father's Day. I had made a paper piecing of the little bear for a layout that I am teaching at Cherry Blossom Studio on June 28, called "I love U beary Much" and thought I would downsize my bear and use to make this cute card. By the way there are still openings in the class so be sure to check it out.

Two New Albums

I am very excited about my new discovery with Genuinely Jane Studios - I promise this is the last owl project I will do for a while. I bought some more shapes from GJS so I will start working on those. It's just that I get on these tangents where I focus on a technique or color or in this case theme....OWLS. Anywho I have posted my little wood Owl Album on ebay... so check it out ... let me know what you think.

I also have my second ebay posting on a smaller chipboard album ... titled "Sweetie". I still just absolutely love the SAFFRON paper from K&CO and the matching embellishments which I LOADED on this cute mini arrow chipboard album.

SNEEK PEEK - Posting on EBAY Soon

Geeze, I've been busy with nothing in particular - just living my life ... and running in circles. So I need to catch up on my blogging. I am working on a couple of projects for ebay and hope to have them finished and posted by tonight. See the sneek peek slideshow I posted (proud of myself for figuring it out).

I am also teaching my "WhOO loves you" two page layout at Cherry Blossom Studio. Michelle saw it when I had it up for sale on ebay and really liked it so she asked me to teach it at her store. Of course I had to change the papers to what she had available, but I think it turned out cute. I used basic grey, luxe, bazzill and unity stamps just to name a few. So if you live in the area, and you like the pages; go to the Cherry Blossom studio's site and click on events to sign up.

Be on the look out for my postings on ebay ... I have two albums that just need the finishing touches. The owl album on my slideshow and an arrow album - they are both super cute. If you feel like blogging let me know what you think of them.
