new 2014 products – idea-ology…


we had a great time at the rubber stamp show in carson, california this past weekend.  thanks to everyone who stopped by to watch the demos, and say hello.  it was lots of fun as always, and i’m looking forward to coming back in november…

so with the start of a new week, it’s time to see another new product release for 2014 – new idea-ology vellum!  capture the beauty of nature with the antique designs in the wallflower vellum stash.  the botanical prints partnered with the translucency of the vellum make for a unique effect for layering or adding embellishments to a project.  also new, are the thrift shop and expedition ephemera packs back in a brand new way.  transpose the vellum shapes on any surface to evoke curiosity of old time tales.  let your creativity run wild with the endless possibilities found in this new imagery – all products are shipping now…

  10. Donna Kalinowsky says:

    Just checked out the creative projects that your design team came up with. Wow! Have me new ideas for lots of your products. Wish I could afford to buy all your line of paper products, stamps, all the small distress inks (I have the full size ones), all the distress paints (only have a dozen), all the distress stains (only bought a few) and the many embellishments you have created. Since I see sometimes, would love the fabrics, too, but my budget is small and your crafty empire is so large. Keep up the creative genius. I’ll just have to pick and choose what I need the most. Haven’t gotten your new book so I can’t take the challenges each week. Wish my library carried it so I could check it out.
