New Catalog Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek at some of the new products in the catalog coming on July 1. 

The card uses two new stamp sets:  Artistic Etchings and Occasional Quotes.

I used my Big Shot to die cut the Scallop Rectangle with a Clearlit.  A Clearlit is a clear Sizzlit die that lets you easily position your die before cutting.  

The card stock is Very Vanilla, Basic Black and River Rock.  I'm glad River Rock is back. It's a great neutral with just a hint of color.

The ribbon is a 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon that comes in 13 coordinating colors.  The thin ribbon is a perfect accent for your card or scrapbook page. 

This card uses a new hostess stamp set called Cute By the Inch.  I alternated the stamped images with 1-inch squares of a new designer series paper called Newsprint.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set, For All You Do.  For the background on the card body, I used Extreme Elements.

The card stock is Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake. The heart is in my new favorite red, Cherry Cobbler.

To see other items from the new catalog, come to one of the open houses being held by the demonstrators in my group.  Check out my website for dates, times and places. 

At the July 10th open house in Richland Hills, I'll be demonstrating how to convert  wood mounted stamps to clear mount.  I've had several customers ask me to show the different methods so they can decide which way works the best for them.  Come check it out and decide if you prefer wood mount or clear mount.

Organizing Small Embellishments

Are you looking for a way to organize your small embellishments?  Here’s a picture of my new favorite container.  It’s a pill organizer. 

When I was at Martha Pullen’s Sewing Market, someone showed me her favorite storage container for small embellishments--it was a pill organizer. The compartments are all separate and it is less expense than similar storage containers.  When I went to the Great American Scrapbook Convention, I saw storage containers that were normally $5 - $7 for 50% off.  I noticed the Braille dots on the containers and then saw that each one had 14 compartments.  That’s when I realized they were pill organizers with a scrapbook label on them instead of am/pm and the days of the week.

These are the pill organizers that I bought at the Dollar Tree. I was able to remove the days of the week with Stazon cleaner.  They have pill organizers in different shapes and sizes.  I liked these containers better than some of the more expensive ones I have purchased in the past.  Leave a comment to let us know where you have found your favorite pill organizers.
