You WILL...

delight in the details of this book.
I promise!

My friend, Lisa Pace's new book was just released @ CHA!

A GIANT...

YIPPEE, LISA!!

I'm so very proud of you!

This book is totally awesome & so well worth the wait...
like 2 bloody years...
and you know ...I am NOT patient...

I read it cover to cover on the flight home...

I KNEW I'd be impressed because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lisa & her style...

But I have to say...

It's even better than I expected.

40 techniques...

100 projects...

awesome step by step photos...

each page shows projects photographed with just the right props, which makes it even more inspiring...

here's the cover...



oh look...
a project using a studio 490 large butterfly stamp...


and another of my stamps...

the large leaf...

sure looks different when used with felt...



this project is probably my favorite...
for today @ least...

plain old white felt...
transformed by Lisa into this georgeous album...
it's totally amazing...

it was on display in the Maya Road booth & believe me...
it's BEAUTIFUL...




You can get a signed/personalized copy from Lisa HERE.

Back to the Q & A tomorrow...

until then...

may you...

delight in the details...

and then...

make art!

Lisa's book looks very inviting! I agree, it's just amazing how different an image can be when used on a variety of mediums. Can't wait for my new stamps to arrive!

You know it seems like there was a period over the past year where there just weren't books out there I was interested in. . . and now there are 3. . . yours, tim's, and now Lisa's. They all look wonderful!!! Can't wait.

Oh my word ... I have white felt somewhere ... if I can remember where I put it :0) Am off to peruse the details of Lisa's book now ... you are such a bad influence on me Wendy ... you know I am about as patient as you *LOL* Need everything like ... erm ... NOW :0)

Debby said...

Linda said...

Kathy said...

Thank you for the link.I can't wait to receive my copy of her book. I am also looking forward to seeing you at Carson in March.

Erica said...

Oh how fun and a Texas Girl too! Wooohoo...

Thanks for sharing. All the new stuff looks fantabulous!

Shirley said...

I got to see it at CHA. It is a really, really good book. So many books published for scrapbookers, cardmakers, etc. are "out of style" in a year--Lisa's book is not like that. It is one that you will want to hang on to, and reference over and over again.

Sandra said...

I love Lisa's style too ... something else to add to my wish list!
thanks for the review.

On my way to order Lisa's book... thank you!!! The things you've shown are gorgeous as is the cover of the book. Are you taking pre-orders on your book??

paperqueen said...

Thanks for sharing; one thing I so admire about you and Tim is your generosity in promoting the work of others. You don't see that a lot in this competitive society, and I appreciate it greatly.
Now, I'm off to make art!
