Have you got your hands on the newest Spellbinders dies yet? Oh my goodness, they just keep getting better! Today I want to show you a peek of the Antique Frame & Accents die. Very pretty! I really like the Accents and Motifs collection. They are all so intricate and elegant. If you are using these, you will want to give yourself a little more time to work the paper from your die. Being impatient may lead to torn die cuts! I like a pointed tool, such as a Quickstik, paper piercer (careful not to poke through your paper), or

I have had more fun with the new Be Spooked and Be Stuffed Collections by Quickutz lately than I can tell you! These dies are not intended just for layouts and cards!
As you can see from my BOO wood project, I grabbed one of the DC0189-Nesting Ghosts and one of the DC0191-Bats to embellish. I have to admit that I have become a pretty simple crafter. I don’t have a lot of time to play, but I still love to craft, so I keep my projects fast and easy so I can actually complete them! If it gets to extensive,

How many times have I said that I love, love, love Die Cuts With A View paper stacks? Well then, I won’t say it again, but you get the idea! Not only do they have absolutely gorgeous patterns and color, but the weight is fabulous for almost any project! Whether you are making layouts, cards or altered projects, it is wonderful to work with! I also love the coordinating stack concept.
While we were at CHA Marcie took some video of some of the new DCWV products! Wow! My hats off to their incredible designers! Their artwork continues to inspire paper

I have had the opportunity to “test drive” a few of the brand new Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies and I believe that you are going to be just as pleased with these dies as the rest of your Spellbinders collections! The Edgeabilities are so versatile in that once you buy all 6 sets, you can mix and match to make over 75 different designs for your paper crafting projects! See all NEW Spellbinders Edgeabilities Video!
I decided to use the Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilies on my scrapbook layout with one of the decorative inserts. Each set comes with one cutting edge and

We’re back from CHA and we had a fabulous time! We met with so many popular, innovative companies and saw so many wonderful things that our heads were swimming! Spellbinders, DCWV, Sizzix, QuicKutz, Graphic 45, and Heartfelt Creations to name a few.
We finally caught up with gifted designer Tim Holtz on the last day we were there! No matter where we had gone before, he was no where to be seen by us! We had passed his booth multiple times, but no Tim! Our last morning brought us luck! He was just cleaning up from a demo in the Sizzix

We’re here! Marcie and I are here in Chicago at Craft and Hobby Association Show which we commonly know as CHA. We have been busy as bees going from booth to booth gathering information on all of the “latest and greatest” products and ordering from all our favorite designers so we can bring you highest quality, popular products on the market! I can tell you now that you are going to love what is coming!
Here’s a shot of Marcie while visiting the Graphic 45 booth! Say Cheese!

Okay ladies and gents, I finally had a chance to play with the new Heartfelt Creations Wedding Collection Stamp Sets! I just can’t get over the incredible detail that their artists put into them! They are so beautiful! These cling stamps are so easy to use with any acrylic block!
I am a bit behind in scrapbooking my daughter’s wedding, so I took the opportunity to use these gorgeous stamps to create a layout of her wedding day! I used Bella Rose Wedding, Wedding Sentiments and Bella Rose Heart. I cut the scalloped piece from the DCWV Linen Closet Paper Stack

DCWV has come to my rescue many times when I want to scrapbook, but just don’t have the time or brain function to create intricate layouts! I love their 12 x 12 Paper Stacks because you don’t have to use a lot of embellishments to make a beautiful layout. Their designers have done all the work for me! You can have a fabulous layout in no time at all!
Since we have a few of their Paper Stacks on special, I decided to show you a couple of layouts that only took minutes to put together, using the Endless Summer Paper

Wow! I can’t believe that it is already Friday! May is speeding by super fast! Of course, with all the cool, rainy weather we have had in Utah, it doesn’t feel like spring yet! That is a good thing when it comes to waiting for the latest items that have been released this month! I just want to stay inside where its warm and play with the latest stamp sets from Just Rite Stampers! They are amazing as usual!

It is crunch time to get you gifts done for Mother’s Day if you haven’t already! Here’s an idea for a card box if your mom likes cards, but needs a place to store them, or you can fill the box with pre-made cards for her to use when needed! Of course I used roses, because that is what mom’s like! Right?
The paper I used for my tin box is the Rustic Paper Stack from DCWV ( It is an exclusive to JoAnn Stores), and the Shimmer Stack for the roses. To cut the roses I used QuicKutz Roses die.

Wow! Mother’s Day is right on our doorstep! Can you believe it? I can’t! I feel like we just barely had Easter…oh wait, we did! I don’t know about you, but I had better get crackin’ on a gift for Mom!
My mom is a scrapbooker, so she would like just about anything that has to do with scrapbooking! Why don’t you come shopping with me to see what I can find that would make great gifts for her special day!
She has tons of pictures to still put in albums as she has 10 children (I am the oldest) and 34

Paper, paper and more paper! It is the foundation of Paper Crafting, right? Right! We have to have paper before we can do anything else in our chosen hobby! Die Cuts With A View is constantly producing enticing Paper stacks, Mat Stacks and Cardstock Stacks to suite our individual and unique needs! They are in the business to bring us the essentials of our trade!
I love DCWV paper for several reasons. Their use of color is very appealing to the eye, they have a variety of weight and texture, as well as themes!
I want to point out a few examples!

Today I want to show you the adorable new QuicKutz Whirlpool Alphabet! I have a weakness for swirls! The more swirly the better as far as I am concerned! This alphabet is so dang cute! You get 65 dies in upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation! The letters are approximately 1″ tall and come in strands held together with the tiny tabs that I mentioned yesterday with the Blue Sky Alphabet. This is the same with the new Carousel and Handmade Alphabets. I used my Cuttlebug with my extended 6 x 13″ Cutting Mats to cut a bunch
