I bought the red and turquoise one for me …but that green leafy one is calling my name too!!! Sigh….
These albums are by the same company who makes the linen ones from my personal album library. The leather ones are to die for. You’ve got to touch the leather on them…like a baby’s bum I tell you!!
I also brought in some of the new DIY Thickers from American Crafts. These super cute and stylish letters are customisable. You can ink, stamp, marker, spritz the paper fronts any way to like OR peel the front covering off the letter and reveal a sticky surface, perfect for adding glitter, micro beads, flocking, sand… anything you like and the best part…change the leftovers to look totally different for your next project!!! I’ve got more than 6 styles with limited quantities of each.
Also, I caved and bought some Lucky 8 Punches. These punches are HUGE and admittedly expensive but I just had to give them a try. Lucky 8 are 3 punches in 1 and the ability to transform your patterned or cardstock paper into exquisite shapes - be sure to test drive this one on Sunday between sips of Spring -gria and nibbling one of Jackie’s minted-pea and prosciutto crostini. Yummm, delish!
There’s lots more that’s new too; new inks, new templates, new vines and flowers. Lots to inspire and get those creative juices going!!
