Daisy D's Premium Collection Paper Pack

I just finished reviewing Daisy D's Premium Collection Paper Pack. In it are 12 sheets of paper, two of each design with one regular sheet and one cut into either a round scallop or a "label" style scallop as you can see in my Lovely Tree layout.

Stay tuned...I should have my next sneak up in a few days.

I am setting a goal to write one how-to for ScrapFriends each month in 2008. I'd like your help with ideas....what would you like to learn more about? Leave a comment and I'll start working! :D

And here's some of my favorite photos from this past week, Katie opening up a necklace from Mom (now we have matching silver heart necklaces...we are so cool!) and Korbin with his Transformer looking all goofy (as usual) and Milo running outside during a snowstorm. He was running up and down the fence line with the neighbor's dogs and took a break to see if anyone was watching him when I took this photo.

These were all taken with my new Sony H9 camera.

Christmas Greetings!

I have so much to catch up on....

I made these Christmas cards this year using Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous cling-mount stamps, Ranger distress ink, LuminArte shimmering mist in bronze, Daisy D's and Flair patterned paper, watercolor pencils, red dye and some German glitter glass. I stamped and hand cut the fairies, colored the wings, dyed the hat and applied German glitter glass to the hat ball. I hand colored and cut a holly leaf image and then applied some Crystal Effects to round the berries, finally cut the Be Merry greeting and assembled.

I only made 19 of them and that took me several hours and several steps to finish.

Everything's Coming Up Primas!

News of the day: I have the rest of the week off from work. Using it to get some reviews done and some scrappy Christmas projects. Yeah!! I also took our dog in for his neutering this morning. Hopefully he's okay, and I will be here for a few days to make sure he's on the mend.

I've been working with the new Prima flowers: sprites, esprit, pixie and center kisses. Here's what I've gotten done with them so far. I haven't even had a chance to use all of the products yet, so I have a lot of fun ahead of me!

Tomorrow I'll be finishing up a review of Tim Holtz's new distress tools from Tonic Studios. Stay tuned!

Hey y'all! I hope you are having a great holiday season! I can't believe Christmas is only 11 days away. I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to do! I will be taking some time off of work next week so that should help a lot!

I've been stuck in Holtz-land again this week with Tim's "12 Tags of Christmas" that he's been posting on his blog. He makes everything look so easy! I am very inspired by his creations and can't wait to try them myself! We also had a chat with him at ScrapFriends this week. I came away from it impressed at how down to earth Tim is. You can read the transcript from our chat here.

I purchased CK's kit of the month, a fantastic foam stamp set for an unbelievable price! They're sold out now, but let me tell you these stamps are AWESOME! (I used the circle border and flower stamps in my layout pictured below.) They are totally rockin' my world right now!

I just finished up a review for Mary Mata designs. She creates beautiful collage art and ATC kits, among other things. Her photography, color and design are just incredible. I was sent a blue butterfly collage sheet and an ATC kit with similar colors and images. Here's one of my pages.

You can read the full review here.

This weekend I'll be finishing up a review on Cosmo Cricket's Biography 101 album. It is an amazing product!! Just wait till you see!


I just posted my photography challenge at ScrapFriends. This week's mission is to photograph something gold. It has to be gold and it has to be shiny!
