Snow here today!! Kids at home- they are happy!!

The snow if awesome if I were a kid I would be in it for hours. Great packing snow, I took a couple shots of our tree tops with snow on them and of our dog Harley. He LOVES snow, he likes to pounce through it and jump and flip in the air to catch snowballs.
I have the crocheted pillow that I posted about a few posts ago almost done, I just need to put on the decorative buttons and then I will share the outcome. I also, did a couple of more Digi layouts with kits from French Ruby and Fotosusu from Dragonflairestudios.

This top one is from A New Day by Fotosusu

This one is from French Ruby's Tropical Cocktail kit

Today I am pretty busy today just making calls and prepping new orders for all the new goodies we are seeing. I have my favorites list going: Some new American Crafts they have a new scalloped paper, spot varnish (which is a smooth flat shine on areas of the paper) and embossing and foiling.

I have seen peeks of the new Crate paper and Deja views lines -distressed, muted boy looking papers, SOO cool. Glitz design has some fabulous new items coming out, MME, Melissa Frances has a beautiful set that is roses and is blues and greens.

I am waiting to see the new Anna Griffin, I like the new Luxe stickers and rub ons, Renevouz line, and a few others. I have a full page of companies. PLUS I am into this new Scraponizer, I am planning on ordering it too. It is 8.5 x 11 and has inside compartments that you put in the tray and snap shut and nothing gets shuffled into the other compartments. There are 4 styles of inner compartments to pick from, but they have what is called the Tool box kit and it is a base, 4 outer trays and 1 of each style of inner tray.

How many of you are into specialty shaped chipboard albums?? Do you like the Wordbook Albums? I did some special orders this fall for custom names and words and they went well and did well at the CK show in Bellevue. I just found out that I can get the Word books that are about 5" high and 8 characters long now. Do you all think you would want to have the ability to custom order these books? How about a mini album that looked like a gameboy controller?? I just drew up the design and I am considering getting it cut and put in a kit or in the store.

Do you have a shape you would like to see in chipboard?? Please leave the comments ladies I try to check on these as much as I can. Have a great day.

Pin It!

Oh I would LOVE a custom word album..... do you mean they can do names and stuff! Sign me up :) Those Bo Bunny albums were so great and I'd love to do one for each of my girlies!

Yes Nessa, any word or name that is up to 8 characters long. They will be 5 3/4" high. The names and wordbooks are special orders and shipped priority mail. They will be $10 each. I plan to get the custom order area in the store by March 1st. However, I will be posting a few samples later this month. I have some REALLY cool new word books that are unique and will be $12

love those snow pictures, your dog made me laugh! Those new papers look so Pretty!!!

My custom word albums (that I bought from you) came out really cute...I mad ethem as presents for Chrsitmas and my freinds loved them.

I think a music themed shape book would be neat.
