More about August. . .


So I have been teasing about the August kits and some exciting new things in store for everyone next month (including a face lift to our site)!!
Here is another peek at the Papercrafting Kit this month- an exclusive rubber stamp (I know I am behind the times, but I just prefer rubber and wood. I like to be able to just pick up my stamp and go AND I just can't get as clear of an image with acrylic - call me old fashioned)!

(Don't you think it looks a little like my Damask pattern paper?! A sweet little cabbage flower!)

And. . . beginning in August each Papercrafting Kit will come with a high quality reproduction photo. I am calling it my "adopt-a-relative" program! For those of you who are highly practical (a little like myself) and won't actually use the photo for altered art projects, ATC's or the sort I have an idea for you: Use them for gift tags! I will use my girl versions for Christmas tags for the ladies in my family and my boy versions for Christmas tags for the men in my family. They could also be used to make cute cards! Here is your relative for August:

I have appropriately named her Victoria! Just look at those cheeks!

Look for more August 1st news here on Thursday and in an upcoming newsletter!

In the meantime, here are some photos of this weekend's flea market finds. . .




(check out the flower frog shaped like a flower- I've never seen one like that before)!!
Pin It!

Soooooo excited for August to get here - even if it means summer vacation is going to come to a crashing halt!

I love the adopt an ancestor idea! I'll use them for lots of things, but using them for gift tags is a great idea. And I'm loving the stamp-bring on August!

Wouldn't it be funny if someone who orders kits from you, actually knew one of the photos you've chosen for adopt-an-ancestor!! Is "Victoria" going to come as a xerox copy??

I am with you on the rubber and wood, although I do own several acrylics. I just consistently get better images with a woodmounted stamp! I really like the stamp for the next kit!

I absolutely LOVE the idea of using old pictures for gift tags. I am an avid collector, and like you, can't bear to cut up what I find (so I scan a LOT!).

Great flea market finds. I hit an antique mall (in name, but more like a flea market) yesterday. I found some great old wire baskets and, by chance, got to meet the owner of the booth who began cutting me deals right and left. It was a GREAT day!
