My Frame of Mind

These are my thoughts, however I may quote those who are smarter and wiser than I am.

I Had an Interest in Pinns...

And now I am hooked.
This new site (or new to me!) is a vortex…of your time.
It's not a bitch-about-this-person type site.
It's not a rag-about-your-ex or soon-to-be-ex.
It's not for complaining about your job or love-life or lack thereof.

It IS a site where you find something cool and "pin-it" to share with a gazillion others.
You can "follow" those gazillion others without reading about the above.
It's called Pinterest.
Be forewarned. It's worse than Facebook on your time. I have to set an egg-timer (numerous times) to curtail my Pinning.
Here's a few things I've found to put on my boards.
Directions can be found here

or…if you have some beautiful scrapbook papers and an empty wall…
SO what are you waiting for?!
Sign up for free, follow-me and let's get PINN-ed!

Yes, Yes…it's HERE!

The new Spring/Summer Idea is here!

Contact me for your own personal copy or if you can't wait that long, you may peruse it on line by clicking HERE

I love some of our new embellishments…to name a few Baker's Twine!
I have a new fetish with this and my ribbon collection is beginning to wonder why I've ignored them for a while.

February Stamp of the Month…cute cute! And is not just for Valentine's Day, although you'll want it for that, too! Of course some images have the matching cut with the AP Cartridge as well.
Here are some of my favorite Paper Packs in no particular order:

As always, in with the new, out with the old….we have a few things that will no longer be available once this catalog is replaced with the Autumn/Winter 2012.
I am sad to see the How-To Books like Cherish, Reflections, Magic and Wishes go.
They are AWESOME for how-to tutorials for someone like me who doesn't have a creative bone in my body…
So people!

The Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book is the last idea book the following products will be featured:
• How-To Books
• Distressing Kit (full kit only)
• Exclusive Inks® Markers
• Cardstock Shade Packs
• 8 1/2" x 11" Cardstock Packs 

Come back soon as I add new artwork using the new products!

February Blog Hop! New Catalog Revealed!

Welcome Back (or To, if you are new) to our circle of friends Blog Hop!
This month unveils our new Idea Book from Close To My Heart and I have to tell ya, there are a few new papers I would wallpaper some certain rooms with!

This month is "anything goes" new or old, but who could resist playing with new products?
Not ME that's for sure!!!!!!
If you've come from Karen's Blog then you're moving right along…

I couldn't decide…really. That's my prerogative and I'm sticking to it.
I have made a couple different projects however the main one fell apart…literally.
So anyhoot here goes:
Pemberley Kit is beautiful!
Here's my daughter's 25th birthday card with the new set Fashionista! Love it!
Check out the Baker's Twine! My ribbons are feeling left out now...
And there is Florentine…
Beautiful and
The images such as the letters and the plaque were cut out using our Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The stamped words come from the new set called Card Word Puzzle! Love it!
I had made a set of these for my sup's birthday, and then using the Pemberley papers I also made a set for my daughter too. They go together so quickly and are a great personable gift.

For another card see my previous post here (told ya I love Pemberley papers!)
To see any of the new products contact me for your own personal copy of the new Idea Book or visit my website.

Now Hop on over to Tamytha's Blog and continue to be awed by all of our participants artwork!
