Good morning!  I’ve got to tell ya I did cartwheels yesterday . . . the Graphic 45 catalog hit my mailbox!  I’m so excited about their new releases and can’t wait to get my hands on both French Country and Secret Garden.  I’ve been waiting for these two collections  . . . they absolutely scream at me!

Did you all see the new eP e-Team Picks Challenge posted yesterday on the eP Blog?  I have a project started for it, but it’s still a work in progress and might be another day or two.  How could I not participate in an altered box challenge?  Hopefully, it will be worth your wait to see it!

What do you guys think of the new  Spellbinders™ 3D M-Bossabilities™ folders?  The minute I saw them, I knew that they would be a perfect match for Quietfire Designs and even hinted to Suzanne that she was going to love the new folders  . . . I can see some fabulous designs for these!  Yesterday, in between awake and nap times, I was able to work up a simple and easy card using a Thank You sentiment from Quietfire.


This card is posted over on the Quietfire Creations Blog today!  In order to get all the deets and more pictures you’ll need to hop over there.

That’s it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by  . . . I’m off to place a G45 order!

Have you been enjoying the Sneak Peek – Spellbinders™ Summer Spectacular?  I know I have!  I love seeing the projects the other Designers come up with using the dies that I’ve looked at but haven’t tried yet!   It also has given me a chance to see what some of them are SUPPOSED to look like when I use them . . . sometimes you just never know (well this meno-memory doesn’t).

As I said I would the other day, I can now post all the details on the second card I made with Framed Labels One.


For this card, the Frame Labels One M-Bossabilities folder was inked with Peridot Mix’d Media Inx, and then the white paper was embossed.   To match the ink on the bottom, the seam binding was also dyed with the Peridot Inx.


The Bitty Blossom flower and leaves were die cut/embossed from white mixed media paper and then the flower was inked with Wisteria and the leaves with Mossy Mix’d Media Inx.

Okay off my point here, but I have to tell you  . . .  I LOVE these Donna Salazar Mix’d Media Inx.  I finally purchased some a few weeks ago and they are fasting becoming “go-to” favorites.  They are pigment, so they can be embossed, but they also react with water.  One of the favorite things now is to apply some of the Inx to the edges of the paper, mist with water, and let the Inx run a little.  You can see here on the Labels One (the blue layer), where I added Jasmine Inx to the edges . . . love the soft look.


Once I can post other CHA projects, you’ll see that I used the Inx quite often!

The sentiment was stamped in Wisteria (to match the flower) and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The sentiment panel was stenciled with Antique Linen before removing the paper from the die.  The leaves were white when die cut/embossed, stenciled with Mossy; and then when the paper was removed, it was misted with water to let the Inx bleed to the edges of the paper.  LOVE the results!

I guess that’s all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to embrace the adventures that come your way . . . life is too damn short!
