Are you ready for this?

Hi everyone!
I'm so excited to share with you some super news from Lindy's Stamp Gang. First off, a new color set coming out on July!  It's the Summer of '89 Set and the colors are so yummy. Take a look:

I've already started a project with these babies and will have it posted right here on the day of the release (July 1st), so make sure you come back and take a look! So much shimmer, so much color, you will totally love this set.
The other thing I wanted to share is this: check out the Starburt's new labels!
Don't the bottles look fabulous? I want to thank the lovely Yvonne for the great picture of these beauties. Such pretty shiny labels that will make picking the colors from your stash so much quicker, because now you'll be able to see which bottle color you are picking up by just looking at the bottle's label. Clever move, huh?  I know it will definitely save me time when picking colors for my projects. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Have a great rest of the week!

Ah, life!

Hi everyone!
I've been missing in action because life has gotten busier and also because I've been really sick. I caught the nastiest cold ever, and I'm still trying to recover LOL. My little Emily was sick as well (she actually was the one who got me sick), but she's all better, running around and climbing on everything. She is a lot of work, but I just LOVE her SO MUCH!!!
I wanted to say thank you to all my followers. I have been so blessed with so many of you and I wanted to say, I really appreciate you all.
I'm getting ready to finish and post a project real soon, which I'm really excited to share. It's a mini album that will be very special... I have a lot of ideas in my head as well for new projects, so as soon as I get my strength back, and this house back to normal (oh how messy things get when you're sick! LOL) I'll start working and posting them for you. Praying for some mojo to come back into my life!

I'll start catching up with all my YouTube Videos too, so if you follow me there as well, stay tuned for the videos coming up.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and always remember, I appreciate each and every one of you!

More of Intaglio and Exciting News!

What can I say? I'm hooked on the technique. The look you get with it is so fab, I just can't get enough of it! I decided to make a tag because I hadn't made one in a while and this was the result.
I used another stamp I had not used before (let me tell you I'm having so much fun using what I have and not going crazy buying stuff!), and two toned embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I just love all the glow and shimmer their embossing powders provide. Have you tried them? They are super cool. The color I used was the Ceasar's Gold, and I just love the texture it gave to my card. I used the Tim Coffey's Cottage Garden Designer paper, which I'm also hooked on, as well as the Glitz Spritz in the color Desert Moon Gecko Green.....I don't know what is is, but I keep telling you it's my all time favorite and I have to spray it on everything! See the turquoise shimmer everywhere? I have to stop using it so much though, because as you know, it has been discontinued, and once my bottle is over, I won't be able to get it anymore :(.... (oh but regarding this, I have exciting news! Keep on reading until the end of this post to find out haha!)
To hold my sentiment (which was stamped from an American Craft's stamp set called Enjoy), I used an ornament hook I purchased at Target. I love the distressed look it has, and most of all how inexpensive it was, being that I bought some packs on clearance after Christmas at 70% off. Score!

I've been using lots of punches in my projects lately, and I incorporated some of the leaf punches I own. I used a Prima flower and trim, some K and Company brads, a brass charm from my stash, an extra large copper eyelet, and some gold sprays and fibers.
If you'd like to watch the technique step by step with this particular stamp, you can click HERE for the video.

Now for the EXCITING news!!!
I know a few of the Glitz Spritz at the LSG site were discontinued, along with my beloved Desert Moon Gecko Green, but have you heard there are four new sets of colors being released??? Yes, four!!!! Oh I am so excited about that! I have them all in my possession already and I know you'll LOVE them. All the sets have awesome colors, and great names too! The first set being released will come out this Friday, June 13 and it's the Drink Me Silly set. Look at all the fantastic colors! This is definitely my favorite set at the moment.
Check out the Lindy's Stamp Gang Website on Friday to get this awesome set at a great introductory price. Once you get them you'l love them! 
Thanks for stopping by!
