Have you met my faithful assistant Frannie? She is always by my side and loves to help me in the studio. She’s great at shredding paper and unspooling ribbon. And if you need something chewed, she’s ready to take on the challenge.
Frannie is 7 lbs of terrier mutt, although most of that is fur and ears. She loves to lounge on the back of the couch and always has this one ear perked up to make sure she’s not missing out on something. Frannie is full of personality and wants to be the center of attention all the time. She is a important part of our lives and I love this picture of her.
This is one of the scrapbook pages that I had on display at OnStage. I used the flower stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set. I believe I mentioned a couple days ago that there is a coordinating die set to go with this stamp set. Let me tell you now… buy the bundle and get the dies to go with this stamp set. I didn’t have the dies when I made this page, so I hand cut the flowers and leaves. It’s not impossible, but the dies would have saved so much time.
One of the stamps in the set is the row of dots. They make a pretty cool background. I stamped the rows offset from each other for a subtle look. I used the Silver Bakers Twine to tie on the tag. The sentiments in this set are great too but this one that I used is my favorite. She has definitely made our life so much better. I’m sure those of you with pets know exactly what I’m talking about.
It’s Thanksgiving Weekend and there is one more thing to be thankful for… That’s right, a Stampin Up sale! For the first 24 hours, Stampin Up will have a number of stamp sets on sale at really great prices. Tuesday through Sunday, Stampin Up is adding some of my favorite framelits and dies to the sale. And we’ll close out Cyber Monday with a bang. Check back later for those deals.
A brand new product?!? Say what?!? Yes, the Stampin Blends markers are available to purchase starting November 1st. The Stampin Blends markers are alcohol based markers and they help you create beautiful coloring with shading. Check out the Orchid in this picture. It is stunning. You really get the depth of the flower with the lighter and darker areas. With a little bit of practice, you’ll have these markers mastered in no time.
