I didn't think it was too early to start thinking about Christmas until I emailed my friend Michelle, who sells scrapbook supplies, to ask her about Basic Grey's new Christmas line-Wassail, and she told me it won't be available till sometime in October.
What??? That's just way to far away for me. I want to start creating, and with the encouragement of my new friend, Damaris, my plan is to kit these albums. Scary, I know... Well, maybe not for you, but for me... Stay tuned to see if I actually get up the courage to do it!
Anyway, here's my sketches. I've actually taken these to the next step and I'm getting ready to start cutting the acrylic.
Now I've got to figure out what paper line? Dang you Basic Grey... you're my favorite, but the albums all have to match, and I can't be expected to wait till October to start!
On a different note, I taught a simple card class the other night at my church.
These are the sample cards I advertised the class with.
The day of the class I called all the women who signed up and asked them to bring a paper trimmer and scissors if they had them.
One of the gals brought these:
Remember when these were all the rage and we all HAD to have them. And all our scrapbook pages, and photo mats had the decorative edges?
Secret confession... I still have mine. I think my kids would have a conniption fit if I tried to throw them out. They can't figure out why I'm not using them.
Maybe I'll try my first blog giveaway... anyone want my decorative scissors??
