I’m so excited about getting my new catalog order next week! I ordered mostly accessories – polka dot brads, new watercolor paper (it’s bigger!!), new embossing folders, punches…I did order a few new stamp sets, but I also got 3 free. Free stamps are my favorite! And you can get free stamps too. Saturday, July 9, from 1-3 p.m. I’ll be having a catalog kick-off open house at the “studio.” I’ll have some give-aways, door prizes, make & takes and more. I’ll also have my recently retired stamps and accessories for you to look at and buy. For every $1. you spend on retired items, you can select $.50 from the new catalog – FREE!* So come out and join us! If you can’t make it, you can call, e-mail, text or fax your order to me with payment info. Please be sure I have your order by 11 p.m. Saturday.

I had fun with this one. I embossed the Garden Green layer with the Vintage Wallpaper folder, then added distressing ink. It was a little too much, though, so I embossed it again with Perfect Polka Dots, distressed it a little more and crimped the bottom. The only problem I have with distressing is if I moisten the card stock, it never wants to stick well. I’ll keep working with it.
That’s it for now. It’s been a long day, and tomorrow will be pretty packed too. Thanks for stopping in!
