anniversary party - week 2!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! My four-legged kids were very good to me. :)

Did everyone enjoy Part 1 of Lynn's video series last week? She is so creative and fun to watch! Before I let you loose on Part 2, we have another wonderful prize to give away this week!

Who doesn't love American Crafts? And since they now have Pebbles, Crate Paper and Studio Calico under their wings, there's even more to love! Post here what your favourite AC, Pebbles, Crate or SC collection is and you could be the lucky winner of the Gardenia collection, along with AC/Pebbles trims, brads, felt flowers, alphas and pinwheels! We'll draw a random winner this weekend.

Now, onto part 2 of Lynn's fabulous video, where she will be showing you a fun way to double die cut!



Thank you everyone for your well wishes and sweet emails, they are so thoughtful!

  9. Wonderful Part 2 of tutorial. Now I am anxious for Part 3. Love the double die cut technique. Gorgeous job!
    I am a paper lover, so picking just one is way too difficult since there are so many wonderful collections by the entire group. For AC, I really like the Amy Tangerine; For Studio Calico, I really like the Take Note; The Farmhouse collection by Crate Paper is adorable and I simply adore the Pebbles set~Country Picnic.
    Thanks for an amazing opportunity!

    ReplyDelete

  45. Thanks for some wonderful tips! I loved the video and will have to go back and find the first one in this segment to be 'all caught up'. You know, it's always so hard to choose one thing that a person likes, but I just picked up some Pebbles ribbon that I absolutely love. I'm going to use it in my daughter's (hers is pink) baby album and my son's (blue) album. A great selection is available on each card. Definitely a line I'm adding to my collection of goodies! But I still love Amy's work, and the other fun stuff, too! Told you, hard to choose.

  109. Every woman should have a
    black cocktail dresses in their wardrobe. Why? You never know

    when you are going to be invited to a social event, so it is important to be ready! Prom Dress Shop will help you be prepared

    for any type of party or social event with such a large collection fun and fierce
    white cocktail dresses. Designers like Mori Lee and Sherri

    Hill have a wide variety of dresses to compliment any body type or personal style. Whether you want a short party dress or a

    long evening gown, there is something to wear to any type of event! Cocktail dresses are not just to be worn at
    “cocktail parties” but they can be worn to any semi-formal or “black tie” occasion.
    plus size cocktail dresses with sleeves
    is normally less elaborate and shorter in length, where as a black tie dress is more elaborate and longer in length.
    The history behind the term “cocktail dress” is very interesting, as Christian Dior was the first designer to use the term

    in the 1940s in reference to early evening wear. Modern day designers have taken the basic concept of the cocktail dress and

    turned it into a fun, short party dress with an elegant and classy touch. Mori Lee is well known for her elaborate sequined

    and hand beaded dresses, where as Sherri Hill is famous for her cute sweetheart dresses. Both designers have variations of

    different styles, which will allow you to express your personal style at the next cocktail party or semi-formal event!
