i really did plan on writing days ago, but priorities got in the way……
but, i’m back to tell you that not only have i made more cards, (some already posted on my etsy shop), i also made TWO fun mini albums as well! one is for summer photos and the other is for a baby girl. one album has a scallop shape and one has a bracket shape. both have colorful, fun papers and lots of great embellishments. there are chipboard embellishments, pearls, ribbons, and, of course, bling, just to name a few! these albums may not have a lot of pages, but they have enough space to include lots of smaller photos like 2×3’s. you can mix it up and put a few 2×3’s on a page and then put one 4×6 on a page. whatever works for you! you can also use these albums as “starters”……adding more pages to them yourself!
i have also spent time “researching” the new lines of paper that came out for the holidays…i am really impressed with Echo Park Papers more than the rest. one new line that really caught my eye is their Halloween line called “the Apothecary Emporium”. here’s a look at this delish line of frightfulness!
with that said, look for my line of Halloween cards to feature these cool papers! i must confess, halloween is my favorite holiday to create cards for all of you!
another new line i really like is also from Echo Park Papers. it’s called Victoria Gardens. these are just bee-u-tiful!
these papers are just sooo yummy! i have sooo many different visions for these papers. blank notecards, birthday cards, get well, congratulations, hello, just to name a few…..the possibilities are really endless! i may even have to make an album or two from these papers!
since My Minds Eye has always been my favorite company for cardstock, i never really looked too closely at other lines. but, ever since CHA, these new lines from EPP have constantly been in my face! i love that the papers are so diverse, both in their patterns and colors. i love that they are both distressed and shabby chic, my favorite styles!!! there’s just so much i can do with these papers! suffice to say, i have found another company that i can share my money with! lol
changing gears…..for those of you who are wondering about my Roxy, while she is still sick, she is doing well. she takes her medicine 2x day without fuss, continues to play with her brother, Ramsey, and is just her sweet self. her latest blood work came back showing her liver damage is NOT something she was born with….so, it’s from the valley fever. we just don’t know how badly. she will have her blood tested again next week to see if the medication is helping. fingers crossed…….
and finally, like everyone else who is a diehard Kings fan, i am still (patiently) awaiting Drew Doughty’s signing… training camp starts next month and i cannot and WILL NOT imagine it without him. i don’t recall the last time the Kings had such a dragged out negotiation. i truly believe that drew will sign with us, but enough aready! it’s just gone on too long!
so, that’s it for today. hope you all got a little bit of something that interested you. i will post photos of the albums in my next post…..
thanks for reading, my friends……
