A bit of enabling…

Hey there.

I haven't done much enabling lately, so I figured it was time. :) There are lots of great goodies popping up thanks to the recent CHA show.

First up? The new Distress Ink Stains. Yes, you need these. Yes, there are many fabulous techniques that you can use these for. Yes, I will be sharing lots with them soon! :) You can find them all HERE.

Next we have these fun big letter stamps from Hero Arts. Love how big they are and the price is really great. (Find them HERE.)

Quite some time ago I found some great little flowers on etsy.com and have loved using them. Now they are available through Prima! These are such fun to use… plastic and durable and great for any crafting. (Find them HERE.)

Here is a card I did several months ago using a similar flower…

We are redoing the kid's bathroom starting on Monday. Completely gutting it. Blech. But once it is done I am covering the walls with happy art. Lots of happy art. HERE is my currect fave…

Totally random here: Looking for a good and healthy recipe? Try THIS one for Panko-Crusted Salmon from the Barefoot Contessa. We love it – and Colin swears it makes him run faster. :)

I'm off to watch a movie. Inside Man. Anyone seen it?

  10. I saw Tim Holtz´s demo at the CHA of the new Distress Ink Stains – I agree Jenifer – it is a MUST HAVE :)

    I’m definitely looking forward to trying these stains – so many “must haves”, hard to choose. :)

  12. Those distress stains are on the top of my “must have” list. Love those prima flowers too.

    Inside Man is a great movie. Have fun with the redo – our redo starts in a couple of months…ugh! As for the new TH stains – What is the difference between those and the Ranger Color Wash and Glimmer Mists (other than the glitter)? In other words what is the difference in the bases of these products? Anyway so looking forward to seeing you use these in the future? Any chance of a video comparing all the products???? Thanks!

  15. Inside man is a good movie! And I like the good looking actor. :) Thanks for the enabling post. I am really curious about those distress ink stains and would really love technique ideas!

    So sorry Colin has been feeling louzy. He will have good memories of how his Mom always helped him make things. They are cute, do you get to go take pictures at the party. I’ve been hearing other brag on the new Tim Holtz stains. I need to watch a demo again.
