Quick Update from this morning

Making Memories called us and said that our Slices would be shipped by the end of the week. So keep your fingers crossed that they are.

And I got our website up and going. Nothing fancy but it gives some general info. So be sure to check it out and find all my grammar errors.


Coming Soon

I just wanted to let every one know we are getting the Slice in. If you don't know what the Slice is you can check it out HERE. Basically its a portable die cutting machine. It runs off of SD cards. You can charge it up and don't have to worry about being next to an outlet. There was a little mess up with our order so it will be here sometime the first two weeks of Nov. I will keep you updated if there are any changes

Also I have pre-ordered the new High School Musical and Hannah Montanna Paper. I don't know for sure what the release date is on them. But my guess would be end of Nov. begining of Dec.

Also I have ordered more Colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. You can Click HERE to see the earlier post about them.

One last note. I plan on working on our regular web site this week that I will just have general info about the store in it. Lets hope I can get that done this week

Storage Units, Ink, and More Cards

Well I have used the SUI (Storage Units Ink and more) Stamp and I love them they are so much fun to create with so here are a few samples of there Fall and Thanksgiving stamps. I hope you enjoy them.
For this card I used a leaf punch ane put the leaves on the paper then sprayed over them with a mister. Then I stamped over them with the leaf stamp. I Stamped the Girl and Turkey on a peice of paper cut out the girl, Happy Thanksgiving and turkey I used pop dots under the turkey and Happy Thanksgiving
Here is just a close up of the Girl and Turkey
This card has an accorden fold on top and you can hide your message under the fold. I used the Leaf it to Me stamps from SUI.
I saw the dog on the Boys and Bug stamp set and thought of the dog sitting next to the Thanksgiving dinner table checking out the food.
"We Gather Together" Just seemed so fitting for it.

We are so exticed to have added Tattered Angels Glitter Mist to the store this week. I found this wonderful Hanging File Fold Tutorial while looking at blogs you can click HERE to see it four your self. Instead of useing the plastic stenticals I cut some images out on the Pazzle with Card Stock and used that for my stentcal. I used Bronze, Coral, and Timeless Lilac Glitter Mist on my folder. The Flowers are from Heidi Swapp then spritzed with the Coral Mist.
For this Christmas card I first Sprayed Bronze mist all over the paper and let it dried. The Gingerbread Man stamp is fromImaginisce first I have to cut of the Happy Holidays wording but as you can see were are going to use that latter on. Then I stamp the Gingerbread man on it using Ranger Adirondack Espresso Ink. I also stamped three Gingerbread Men on a scrap piece of cardstock and cut them out. I used repostional tape on them and put then over the stamps on the card so when I spray more colors the gingerbread men stay bronze. Then I sprayed Coral and Sea Foam Green Over the card. let it dry and took off the top Gingerbread men. Then I stamp Happy Holiday on the card using ColorBox Gold ink. I then used Gold Stickles to out line the Gingerbread Men and add a couple BoBunny Buttons.
