Shabby Chic layout

Here is a layout I finished today using some of my new treasures. The background paper is from Pink Paislee. It is double-sided cardstock weight paper. I used bronze glimmer mist to dye the tulle flower, the lace ribbon, and the actual photo mat. This ensures that your embellishments match the total project regardless of the manufacturer. The stunning flower was stamped with a new stamp by Stampendous (Jumbo Peony Set). The flower was stamped on the pink printed paper, embossed with copper glitter embossing powder, and then popped onto the page with pop dots. The stamp set is currently

on order. If you are interested in this set, call the store and ask to be on the wait list. The set won't last long on the shelf.

New Arrivals!

The store just received an order of Tattered Angels products. Not only are the new spring 2011 misting colors in stock but also Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam. (I can't wait to play with my new colors.)

Plus a box of Dead Beat Design stamps arrived on Saturday. So if you've been waiting for the chain or tree stamps, come on over to get yours before they are gone. Lots of other infamous designs are also in stock.
