MUM'S no longer THE WORD...NOW...SHARING is good


I just finished this about an hour ago. It's added to the box & HOPEFULLY Mr Fed-Ex will deliver ALL my art...UNDAMAGED... as promised! You can bet I'll be tracking this box hourly. 2 full months of work trusted to a stranger=scarry!!

Anyway...this is the new Villa house. It's the perfect fit for a tissue box! The "studio" letters are new & REALLY fun. Small...just what we needed. Perfect for cards, mini books & layouts too. They come in 3 different styles...check the catalog...lots of goodies there.

Here's the back...I used the Trinkets Elements flowers & blossoms and a new scroll from the Scrolls 2 tin.




Here's a little better look @ the metal flower. And now a warning...don't buy them. They are ADDICTING!!! I swear I'll need 1000. Can't you think of 20 ideas immediately??




The black metal trim is from 7 gypsies.

I had several emails asking what the sheer sheets are for. My first thought was to use them as a stencil for a cool background, since they're nice & sturdy & can be reused a ton of times. I also plan to cut them into strips for borders for cards or layouts. I know I'll be using one to embellish a jar candle too.

So...what did you think of the new releases?? Tell me your favorites.

I'll be back tomorrow with more...maybe we'll do that pink I told you about! Or...maybe the Ranger art piece...

Have a great FUN weekend. I'll be making SMALL art that I can squeeze into my suitcase.

Thanks so much!!
Wendy
ps...HA! This is NOT in the catalog...so keep studying. The contest starts next Friday the 8th, the day I head out. Details to be announced on Thursday the 7th. I'll get the winner figured out when I return on the 15th. The prize will be good. It's a promise!

So many new things to love. Some of my favorites are the sheer ribbon and sheer sheets, the Scrolls II Chipboard Set, and the Sheer 2 Ring Scalloped Book. Great new stuff. Can't wait to see it in person.

I too thought those sheer sheets would be great for stencils. How cool would they be with Color Wash sprayed through them! Nice!!

Love your house too - way cool.
