for the love of PAPER!

I love it when new paper arrives! Today we got in an assortment of papers including these fun "At the Beach" papers which coordinate with great stickers & 3D embellishments, perfect for your summer pages! We also got in our first shipment of Autumn papers-- this new line by Flair is beautiful and quite diverse. Papers like these make me feel a little bit more prepared for autumn to come :)


Of course, there is more besides these, but I wanted to give a little sneak peek! We also got some fun new papers & rub ons from 3 Bugs in a Rug. If you are a lover of PURPLE you'll be tickled by these!

Today I'm finally going to do it... the christmas stamps are going out on the shelf! It's taken me quite a while to work up the nerve, and I'm still not ready to actually stamp with any of them, but I know some of you are and I wish you all the best as you get ahead of the game!

Christmas is coming... stamps are here!

Well, it's happened. Our first shipment with NEW for 2006 Christmas stamps has arrived! It's a bit weird, but then I'm never ready for it when it comes, ya know? There are some fun new images-- including all the snowflakes you see on the cover of Hero Arts' winter catalog and idea book (which you can have FREE if you purchase a Hero Arts stamp!) There are some fun new stamps, though, and of course... back in stock-->BLING! Hero Arts makes my favorite self adhesive rhinestones, which are a nice touch on, well, everything!

Other news that has me jumping for joy today... my first batch of Disneyland pictures has arrived! I can't wait to start scrapping this holiday! I ordered prints via 2 peas in a bucket (scrapbookpictures.com) and since I'm doing a little 8" album, I ordered a bunch of them in 3x3, which is quite a nice little size! I also ordered a couple of them cropped to 4x8, which will be a half of my layout-- how fun is that!
