Attention! Attention!

The 2008 Holiday Mini Catalog should be arriving in your mailbox some time very soon! I’ve had the privilege of looking through it, and I LOVE what’s inside! I can’t wait for you to see it too!

Bright Ideas!

Let’s get one thing straight!

When cutting out a circle with decorative edged scissors, to keep it ‘straight’ and even, trace a circle on the back of whatever paper or cardstock you will be using. Then with your scissors, continuously line up the bottom portion of the blade decoration along the traced line as you are cutting. It still may not be perfect, but it is a pretty good trick to keep it on the right track, and all your scrappin’ friends will be amazed at how you cut such a great scalloped circle!!

Home Sweet Home

You can use a lot of your stamping supplies to make great home accessories! Make a scrapbook page, frame it and hang it on the wall or put in on the mantle. Stamp on a lampshade, dish towel, tablecloth, containers, or even walls! You can make personalized coasters, trivets, tiles, refrigerator magnets, candles, wall art, or make these projects and give them as gifts! Even better if wrapped in handmade gift wrap or a gift bag made by you!

Ribbon Rainbows!

Here’s a great way to make the most of what you have! Press white grosgrain ribbon onto any color Classic inkpad to create a ribbon in any color you need! You can also vary the colors for a two-tone or rainbow look!
