FEELING OUT OF THE LOOP BUT THE ANTICIPATION IS BUILDING
I have been getting emails from other angels on what the new catalog is like, what's in it, etc. I feel so bummed that I couldn't make it to seminar again this year. I really have to start putting aside a little cash each month so I can get out to Nebraska next year. It kind of sucks having to sit it out and wait for news and wait for your order of cataloges to arrive. I got my order in today so I am hoping by this time next week I will be drooling over the new catalog and all the new stamp sets. There is apparently a white pen that everyone is raving about as well. I will be super happy to be able to get a white pen that actually works! I wonder if our dry climate here has anything to do with it but I have to get a pen and use it within a few days and after that it just doesn't work well. So here is hoping... I had some free time tonight with both kids up at Uncle's home for the night so I finished putting together a fun card using scraps from my over-flowing scrap boxes and the outside frame of a die cut. I tried a couple different dies and ended up really liking how the ice cream cone came out and thought that makes a great image for a summer card. I love the challenge of using my scraps in my scrap box. I picked out about 10 patterned paper scraps and cut them into 1/2" strips and put in the new strip scrap box. This is really fun way to use those outside frames of the die cuts you cut out. Now, I have to come up with something to use all the die cut ice cream cones I have. I am sure I can figure something out. I will let you know what I come up with.
