Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY! Yes, it has been a long week, even though it was a "short" week because of the holiday. I hope you had a great 4th and are enjoying your summer : )
We talk almost every night to our son who is now in Pensacola, Florida. He is doing part of his training, but not yet in the school for his main training (not sure when his "real" school starts). He is so missed, and I don't like that he is so far away, but we are so proud of him! In September/October we might go ahead and fly to Florida to see him, not sure yet, but would love to be there with him.
Anyhow, onto some stamping stuff! This time of year it is hard to not find all the great sneak peeks for the upcoming Summer CHA 2011, lots and lots of paper, tools, stamps, just tons of great new things! So, without further suspense, links for sneak peaks and also some other general links for you too : )
Tim Holtz stamps: Loved his new stamps, especially the Santa ones, some very nice stamps here (and if you are near Carson, CA take note that there is a stamp show you can attend this weekend, details are at the link).
Sew Ribbon: This looks pretty neat, sewing on your paper projects with ribbon! Like the other new tools as well.
New Perfect Pearls Mist: New colors from Ranger, rich and just begging to be added to your project!
Spellbinders: WOW! Lots of great new dies, can't wait to try some of them out. Link is to the blog, you will need to look at the last three posts for all the links to the new products.
Now some general links:
Intense Pencils: I posted this video on the AfterHoursStamper facebook page as well, GREAT tutorial on how to use these amazing pencils : )
Picnic Basket Template: This is SO cute, looks like it might take a bit of energy to put together, but well worth the effort!
An entire page of Video Tutorials: SparklenSprinkle have an entire page of great videos on all sorts of projects and techniques.
Make a rose: Love this rose and an easy to follow tutorial as well (and I need to put the rose spellbinder templates on my wish list).
And a video on how to create the roses:
Product review: Nice review of Glittler Modge Podge, another thing on my "wish list."
Ok, that is it for this week, have a wonderful weekend, happy crafting!
