Fiskars Winter CHA Goodies...

I must say, I am one lucky girl to be a part of the Fiskars team of designers. They are always very generous with providing us with oodles of their fabulous tools and stamps, but I about fell over when I opened this box on Friday. I'd seen the catalog before the show and knew that they have a ton of new stamps and punches coming out, but still... to think this is just a part of what's new with Fiskars makes me do the happy dance!

So here's a few photos that I wanted to share of my goody box....

birthday, wedding, baby, quotes, alphas, shapes, Halloween, Winter, borders, flowers, butterflies, birds...and more and more AND new seasonal Limited Edition Squeeze Punches too...the bird is cute, cute, cute!

The For the Birds & Butterfly Magic stamp sets are my favorites!

I don't believe these are up on the regular Fiskars website just yet, but keep your eyes open for them on-line and in stores. Or you can see them here - Fiskars Catalogs.

In addition to the above there are a ton of new Squeeze Punches being released...wait til you see!!!

I know what I'll be doing this week...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

King of Hearts...

Here's a new layout I made for the Glue Arts website.

BTW, have you ever had a photo that you find yourself scrapping time and again??? Well, this is the one for me. I simply love this photo of my boy and can't help but use it again and again. :)

Anyway... using the Glue Arts adhesive squares, I stacked small chipboard pieces to create dimension with the stickers, punches and other embellishments on the page.

Supply List:
Glue Arts - Glue Glider Pro with High Tac adhesive; Adhesive Squares
Bo Bunny - Persuasion & Love Bandit Collections
Fiskars Tools - That's Amore & Pucker Up Squeeze Punches
Li'l Davis - Chipboard Alphas

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!

The New Year...

Happy belated! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday celebrations. My family and I had a wonderful holiday break that was VERY laidback...maybe a bit too much since I now find it impossible to get back into the swing of things! :)

But here's a quick post today to share a cute project I made for Fiskars website featuring the Ultra shapeXpress Tool and the new Cupcake Shape Template. The challenge for the article was to create something out of the box using the template and cutting tool. Meaning, don't make something with cupcakes!

A decorative frame...looks perfect in my laundry room.

Isn't that birdie cute?

You can find more details about this project and those of the others in the article, Ultra ShapeXpress Templates.

Here's to a creative new year & have a great weekend!
