Blendabilities are almost here & Something for Baby!

Starting tomorrow, August 1st, the full line of Blendabilities Markers will become available.  I love these things!!!  We'll be using them at our workshops this month and at the Christmas in August event.  Click here to shop for your favorite colors.   Here are a few of the great things about this product:
  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. 
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Color coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.

We had our Project Life Scrapbooking Class last Saturday and I wanted to share some photos of what everyone was working on.  The first set is from Carrie R. who does a lot of scrapbooking of her grandson.

The next set if from Brenda F. who spent her time die cutting letters.  As  you can tell, the new Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz Dies were the hit of the day!!

Velita W. worked on her east coast road trip:

Michele M. worked on some vintage photos from her past:

Laura D. had planned to work on her 1200+ photos from her New Zealand trip, however, she overworked the Walgreens photo center and they didn't finish printing them until the event was over.  So, she organized her maps, brochures and tickets from the trip and worked on cards to put in the pages (which she has started working on).  

I spent my time on cutting letters and working on the girls "through the years" albums:

This last photo is of a card I made just using Project Life cards and embellishments:

For years I've been asking Stampin'Up! to come up with a scrapbook kit that has all the fall holidays and one that has all the spring holidays.  I'm super excited to say that they have a Project Life kit in the new Holiday Mini Catalog that has all the fall holidays - woohoo!!!  Can't wait!
