Hi Everyone… quick FYI: 
Holy smokes I'm excited! I know, I know.. how does one get excited over a new scrapbooking craft mat??!! EASY… and I'll tell you why. The last time (years ago) when these mats were available - I MISSED OUT! Yep.. they SOLD OUT before I could grab one! I know theres a lot of you that were waiting for these to hit the stores so I thought I'd do a post so you can get yours! 

Here's a few picts of mine ready to be used on my scrap table! ta-heee… SIMPLE PLEASURES! I know .. YOU know.. what I mean! :)




If your local scrapbook stores doesn't have them available… walk straight up to the front counter and ask when they plan on getting them! I was so disappointed when they were no longer available.. I ended up waiting several years for these! YAY

Happy Scrapping!

Steff

New 2014 Color Bloom SPRAY Mists ... ??!! What ?? Have you heard!!?? OOH YES... I am crazy excited to share this post with you and I'll tell you why...

First, I have to say, the over all BOTTLE design of the Spray Mists is amazing! The bottle and pump is so comfortable and its perfect for me to just grab and spray with more control and ease. I love these new Color Bloom Spray Mists! YEP…. LOVE THEM.. So I have two (2) projects to share!

PROJECT #1 "Just Playing with Sprays"
I was lucky enough to get ahold of a few colors to play, create, & SPRAY with! Oh and did I play! I sprayed anything I could get my hands on ...  tags, papers, white flower, resins, ribbons, seam binding, the NEW Prima wooden ATCs (new favorite), and more. The colors are stunning gorgeous and with all the magical sparkly happiness added to those mists it made my crafty self giddy with excitement. I know, right? How can someone get this excited over a new mist? Wait till you try them!

Here's a picture of of the outcome of my playing with the NEW Color Bloom Spray Mists!
I created some "oh gorgeous - romantic - I love them!" tags.

Limor Webber (yes, she is super gorge/sweet in person too), Anna Dabrowska (yes creativity oozes from her in everything she does.. even when she notices a slight unnoticeable run in her stockings.. she looked down grabbed and redesigned the snag so it had commitment and a cool look??!! wow .. loved it!), Nathalie Kalbach (YES!… oh good gawd.. I was giddy…MAGICAL!- Loved her instantly too)! What  a pleasure! And bonus, I got to catch up with both Jamie Dougherty and Frank Garcia.. who both came out with NEW exciting collections! Congratulations :)
  • The classes were over flowing and the excitement was thrilling! Students were packed down with amazing kits jam packed with New WINTER CHA 2014 Prima happiness! and then the goodie bags… well whoa… It WAS AMAZING! I'll let other bloggers, Facebookers share the details :)
  • We created for 2 glorious days!  3 classes a day… 3 hours each … and even though I couldn't feel my feet at the half way point at each day.. it just didn't matter. I loved it.
  • We had exciting drama (a mini chair fire - whew it turned out NOT to be serious), great tasty snacks for breaks, get picture ops, lots of hugs, lots of exchanging of info and TONS OF LEARNING about new product, techniques.. and about each other! ;)
  • So, big super squeeze thank you hugs to all those who attended! You are the best in every way! And to those who were were not able to attend due to that bad weather and flight cancellations  --YOU WERE MISSED!!!
