Pretty idea!

Just had to show you this cute idea from Carrie. That large rosette is 5 inches in diameter! She cut a strip of paper 2.5" to start and then scored it on the Martha Stewart scoreboard. Then just fold back and forth and join together. We're happy to show you how in person too--just stop by and ask! It all looks so cute in the watering can--perfect for spring decor or for a table centerpiece.

Just in time for Memorial Day

Two super cute lines from Pebbles, Inc. We love that they have a red, white and blue option AND a kraft background option!

And lots of cute matching embellishments....

May Retreat

Here's the whole gang from Carrie's retreat this past weekend. A great group of talented scrapbookers here!! Thanks to Carrie for all the hard work of planning this event and for the wonderful food!!
Here are the centerpieces (also a Carrie creation!) that were on each table.

The girls were given the assignment to make a page about what they are passionate about that included a picture of themselves. Here's a couple examples of the awesome work that was done. Don't you love the camera die? That's a Sizzix Tim Holtz die if you are interested. You can click on these to see them bigger as well.

We are looking at July for our next Retreat and the theme will be a luau. Blow the dust off your grass skirts and join us!!

The Stay Put Craft Mat (the one in Tim Holtz's Video's)

No more sliding around, having to use glue dots, or holding your craft mat in place with your hand. This high quality craft mat's unique backing forms an air tight seal without harming your work surface, leaving your hands free for crafting. 

The Mat has a non-stick surface and is heat-resistant. It can be used with molten UTEE, alcohol inks, and paints, to name just a few. To clean, simply wash the mat in hot soapy water. The special backing does not wear off nor does is tear after using it a lot. The Mat is 15 ¾" x 19 ¾".

New Papers

3 new papers I wanted to let you know about. First a couple graduation ones since we are in full season!
This one makes a double page layout so easy....
