Just one more.... sneak peek!

Can you stand another sneak peek? Just in case you haven't seen this yet - I've gotta share the new Piggy Tales lines with you. Well - I won't put them ALL here, but just enough to make you go "ooohhh".

This line is called "Chicken Little". It's cardstock quality and double sided! The barndoor toppers are new!! The little windows have a flap for your to put journaling or photos under. How cute is that!

The next peek is some of the embellishments for the Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater line. Cardstock stickers, chipboard letters, ribbon, and rub ons. (All the lines have these coordinating embellishments). And you can get all these in a paper pack - appropriately called "Piggy Packs". (too cute).

You can see the entire Summer Releases at the Piggy Tales Sneak Peek Gallery. Check back in a few days. I'll try to have a few projects posted made with the new papers.

(does anyone know how to make blogger stop breaking up the work embellishment? I'm not putting any spaces there...just thought you'd want to know that)

Now... on a personal note - I just love it when the UPS man shows up at my door unexpectedly. Yesterday one of the brown trucks came and left me a box - and to my surprise - it was from Cosmo Cricket. Cosmo Cricket had a giveaway on their blog last week - and *gasp* I was one of the lucky five. I opened the box and gasped as I spied the lovely Gretel collection pack. THANK You Cosmo Cricket!!

'Twas the Wednesday before CHA....

'Twas the Wednesday before CHA Summer Show.......

ah - who am I kidding. I'm not about to write poetry. But I will share some more Sneak Peeks of Dream Street's new collections.

This one is "Forget Me Not" by Dana Miron.....with lacy paisleys, turquoise, orange and lots of soft florals.

The next page is done with Tracy Whitney's "Tea for Two". Think chamomile, green tea and orange blossoms. All soft and distressed.

If you have signed up for Dream Street's newsletter. Be watching. It will have more information. For those going to CHA - have a safe and fun trip without any airline delays like last year!

Pssst... Want a Flair Sneak Peek?

Well, it's not a secret or anything. These papers have been posted on various store websites, but here's a peek of what I made with them this week.

The first is a mini-clip board using Darling Daughter papers and cardstock stickers. These are part of the new family collection which coordinates wonderfully with the Autumn Splendor collection.

The next one is a card made with May Days from the Year 'Round collection.

And the last one uses one of my favorite photos of the kids last summer. The papers are Oh Brother from the new family collection.

I think I'm finally done with my CHA projects. So I'm off over-drive mode or whatever I've been on for the past few weeks. Whew. I'm looking forward to a break... AND stalking all the websites for photos of new product from CHA.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I just looked at the calendar and it's lucky Friday. Tonight is our last crop at my local scrapbook store. Boohoo. She's closing her store at the end of the month. I'm going to miss my occasional girls night out, scrap till you drop, laugh till you spew cola nights. It's been a wonderful time of girls just getting together and I have made so many scrapping friends this way. (sob).

I'm finishing up on the last of manufactur projects before the big show next week. Can't WAIT to show some of the rest here. In the meantime, I've been able to create a few cards. And I have a project featured on Hampton Art's website. You can view it at Hampton Art Wedding Ensemble. I also created a different wedding ensemble for Hampton Art using Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl.

Here are just a few cards. The pink one uses Stephanie Barnard's "Forever Love" Sugarloaf Stamps (cha07 Winter release). Just LOVE those stamps.

Paper Salon Summer CHA 07 Peeks

It's that time of the year again! No - not Christmas, but it feels like it - sort of. I'm buried in new product and have churned out more in the past 3 weeks than I did the previous month. You will love these new products!

You've probably already seen it posted online, but I have to make sure you have seen the new CLEAR stamps from Paper Salon! In addition to 4 new paper lines - there are oodles of new stamps sets in two sizes! 5x6 and a new smaller (card maker) size of 3x4. Here's an image of the Fall Frolic stamp set (5x6).

And here is a card I made with the new Hip Hip Horray paper line and Just A Note Stamp set.

One more peek. Now you know why it feels like Christmas. I almost put on holiday music while I was using this paper line. It's called "Ornamental Holiday" and the stamp set used (notice the poinsettias?) is called "Seasons Greetings.

You can see more peeks at the Paper Salon Blog.

Check back here for more sneak peeks of some other things I'm working on!
