Holiday Catalog Debut

Oh happy day!  The new Holiday Catalog is absolutely fantastic and today is the day that everyone can start ordering from it.  I’m already hearing from many of you how much you love it!!  There are wonderful new stamp sets, designer series papers, ribbons, Big Shot  Framelits and embossing folders, scrapbook kits, punches and oodles of accessories.  If you are on my mailing list you should have already received your copy.  If you don’t have one yet, you can view it by clicking the shop now button which will take you to my online store.  Then click on the Holiday Catalog.   
In addition to all the great things in the Holiday Catalog, there are some AWESOME Thinlits that will make flip cards.  Check them out in the below. 
I will be having classes on these flip cards sometime in September.  I can’t wait to get mine ordered and start playing with them.   

Play with Clay

Last night was my “Play with Clay” Class at which everyone received a package of the Simply Pressed Clay and a package of the Buttons & Blossoms Pressed Clay Molds found in the Big Annual Catalog. The clay buttons in this cards were colored by adding a couple drops of reinker to the clay and kneading it like taffy until the color was mixed throughout.  The clay embellishments are very lightweight and pliable, which makes mailing them super easy.  If you haven’t tried the clay and molds yet, you should get yourself to my online store and give it a try.  It’s really a lot of fun.
