SAY IT ISN’T SO!!! well i would like to change that!! i have a challenge going over on Paper Craft Planet right now OR you can enter here – what do you have to do?? ATC sized valentine’s (even better if you make them with your kids) – think classroom valentines. and to inspire you – Page maps has some tag sketches that would work great for this.

cha fun people fun time part……whats my name again…???

well i am home now – so sorry for the late post but i came home to a super sickie little pez-a-doodle. she is all stuffy, and coughy and her eyes are watering and just a big mess poor baby!

so day 4 was a total blur. i realized i had left my cell phone somewhere the day before so i did a bit of the re-trace my steps thing but never found it. so hubby just told me he got me another one and it’s PURPLE – YUMMO!!!
i will be working on getting the new goodies posted to the store so y’all can order away but keep in mind it is not all in stock so i will try and do a run down:
acetate boxes in stock now except the A2 size – those should be here in a couple days.
flower soft kits – about a week until they arrive but they are already up in the store to order
all things tim/ranger – late march-early april
zva bling – about 2 weeks maybe less
in stock right now – bittersweet and sweetie pie – RUN don’t walk over and get them before i run out!!! Once it is gone i won’t be ordering more!
new kits are coming:
the felties i showed you….. – those will be one of them
also mimosa by SEI

a very sparkly glittered easter collection of goodies

and some new doodlebug mini kits

these kits will be FABULOUS!! as an added bonus i will also be making clay and/or crocheted embellies to include with them to give you lots of new fun unique goodies to play with!

many of you already saw the handmade clay embellies on the Polkadot Pie samples and here are some crocheted ones to give you an idea (totally unfinished – been busy lately):

also i will have some super secret DEElish embellies coming but it could be a couple months on those so i will keep that under wraps for now!

i spent a good bit of my last day running around to some non papercraft booths and playing – i did one stroke painting with donna dewberry – i have been following her for decades i think and always wanted to try that technique. i also played with some different types of clays and checked out some yarn and crochet patterns.

spent alot of time at the clearsnap booth at the request of my studio G rep and jenny really gave me the grand product tour – so thank you to jenny.
on our last night i had set up a dinner with anyone from the cricut board who would be at cha. we met up at bubba gumps:
had a BLAST girls!! it was SO good to meet y’all!!!

Sweetie Pie Kit is finally IN STOCK!!! How CUTE……..

I have been anxiously awaiting the goodies i ordered for one of Pezzy’s Picks – new mini kits hand picked to coordinate with the new Polkadot Pie stamp line:

These goodies are from the brand spankin’ new Sweetie Pie collection by Bo Bunny. The kit includes above 4 double sided 6 x 6 papers (4 sheets of each – pics show both sides), matching 6x 6 double dot cardstock in 3 colors (6 sheets each), plus an assortment of matching brads, buttons and flowers (total will be less than what is shown – pic is for reference) AND 3′ each of 4 different double dot coordinating ribbons (2 are 5/8″ and 2 are 3/8″)

of course i just had to break it out and play – even if it was just a tiny bit! i started with taylor’s cute sketch ->

and here is the yummy card:

i colored the chocolates from the two chocolate treats polkadot pie sets with copics and accented them with star dust stickles. then attached the polka dot ribbon – quick but cute 🙂

i am working on a brand new look for the website with a TON more functionality. it MIGHT be up by Wednesday – YAY!!!

next in the line up of Studio Gs!!! and boy are they good!!

You saw it here first! just when i think they can’t possibly keep it going the folks at Studio G do it again – these are in the early stages so won’t be out for a few months – i’ll post dates when i have them!! Some pics are small so click on them to see better!!!

How freakin cute are these???????

and now down to business!
the stamps are up and ready to order. the kits are not up yet but will be later today and will be in stock by wednesday.
here are all four main image along with goodies from the basic grey pezzy’s picks kit:
Taylor’s cupcake sketch friday was Just perfect!! i stamped the miages in memento rich cocoa and colored them with copics. cut out with nesties and edged with memento ladybug and an ink blending foam. ribbon, paper and bead pops are all in the kit. sentiment is studio G of course and finished off with two matching clay hearts!

next up are two super fun little candy bag toppers:
the background is done with the sprinkled background set combined with the chocolate treats sets. this is SO easy to do with these. simply trim the sprinkle background edges closely to the outside most images so you can easily see the shape. stamp randomly. choose other images and stamp in the empty spaces in matching colors. so quick and so easy and gives lots of different possibilities.

the main images need close ups:

I stamped in black memento and then glued flower soft on the areas that are *cake* – whaddaya think? i used red liquid pearls for icing on the one on the right, then i stamped both images again and colored with copics. i cut out the image with the flower soft and then on the second images i only cut out the chocolate and daisy for one and the strawberry for the other one. i glued them on with diminsionals. i also added dots of liquid pearls to my backgrounds in any remaining blank spaces i felt were too big.
so run on over and pick up these super fun and incredibly versatile sets! i even have a special if you just REALLY need them all for the ultimate in mixing and matching!!!
