Faves, Tricks, and News!!!

Since I can't get around to acutally taking pictures of new layouts I thought I would just show you some of my new (and old) favourite products!! Some aren't even out yet but oh I can tell they are gonna be awesome!!!

Hambly Screen Prints....I LOVE THIS GRID!!!! It looks awesome how ever you use it and it's a transparency!!!

I love anything with brids and owls so I LOVE LOVE LOVE these rub-onz!!!

Very cool trasparency tape from prima! Love the bar code and the crowns!! Looks awesome over top of pictures!!

American Crafts Paper

Prima "A is for..." Stickers...Usually not my thing but I really like these craft colored stickers.

Two new lines from the 5 that Basic Grey introduced at Summer CHA show in Chicago!! I love them all but I especially love Ambrosia and Urban Prairie (which is a little more girly that I usually go for but it's soooo pretty)!!! So can't wait for those to come!!

And then there is always my good old roll of dry wall tape...and aluminum tape....and CRAFT cardstock!!!! Those are my tops!!! If I could just use craft cardstock everytime...I am going to buy faux wood contact paper (you know the kind they used to line cupboards with...)...Elsie Flannigan uses it all the time and it is for sure somthing I want to try!!! Who knows maybe that will end up in my favourites!!

I just learnt somthing new the other day!! I have never been a big "Cuttle Bug" fan... however.. one of our regulars came in and used it to emboss ACRYLIC!!!! It was sooo cool!! She embossed Heidi Swapp Ghost Letters. It just makes them stand out a little more than they normally would. TRY IT!!! Now that I found a cool use for it I may have to buy one!! (this is where Jordan would roll his eyes). I did a layout using this trick and I will post it ASAP.

Robin and Lori just got back from CHA Chicago and I CAN"T WAIT FOR EVERYTHING TO GET TO THE STORE!!! Robin showed me everything they baught and WOW!!! Some AWESOME AWESOME stuff comming up!!

Me and Jen R. are still in talks about our big "THING" as I call it right now.......I CAN"T get seriously into planning and working on it!! It's going to be amazing and fun and crazy!!!

I also have to add that I was looking at Donna Downey's blog yesterday and she looks AMAZING!!!! She has been doing the Nutrisystem thing and has lost 45 pounds!! I was so inspired when I saw her before and after pictures on the web that I am going to start trying harder!!! Wow she is INCREDIBLE and looks HOT!!!! WAY TO GO!! ( I love her!!!) Check it out!!! JUST AMAZING!!!!! and Jordan go on holidays in less that a week!!! YAYAYAY!!!! Can't wait....Love going out of town!!!

That's all I got for now!!!
