The Napkin Fold Mini Album Pattern is now up on my website.

Yesterday, my website had an issue with the server not working properly to send out the automated emails. Lisa has done her magic and all is working fine now. If you ordered a pattern and did not receive the email with the download link, you can log in to the web site, go to My Account and download from there.

See you all tomorrow night!

A new mini....

This Friday and Saturday I will be doing a Ustream show on how to make the mini that is featured today on the Graphic 45 blog. Check out the schedule on the blog sidebar for times.

This is a fun, fast, and easy mini to make. Though I will be giving out all the dimensions on the show, I will also have a pattern/tutorial available on my website by Thursday. I will be making the larger size on the show but the pattern will include both the larger and smaller versions.

To work along with me you will need the following supplies:

- (16-18) 12" x 12" patterned papers. At least 6 MUST be double sided and non-directional
- (8) 12" x 12" coordinating colored card stock
- 3 yds rayon ribbon or patterned ribbon
- 1 yd coordinating ribon for optional closure
- Brad and garment pin or loop for optional closure
- Flowers and embellishments for covers, pages and tags
- Glue, adhesives, optional punches or edgers

Also, tomorrow will be the re-scheduled Part 4 of the Vintage Suitcase mini album at 1pm Pacific time.

Have an awesome week!!

A couple of updates....

The last of the CHA Suitcase kits went out on Monday. The rescheduled last part of that class will be next Wednesday, July 27, NOT tomorrow. See the schedule on the sidebar for time, etc.

The Split Paper Bag Butterfly Garden kits are up and selling quickly. The pattern should be up tomorrow. The Glitz Love Games version will go up before Friday and a 3rd summer themed version featuring Bo Bunny's Barefoot and Bliss along with 7 Gypsies Mykanos will post soon (though it won't be shipping until the first week of August due to product delays)

I am waiting for the last couple of items for the Tag! You're it! kits. They will go out as soon as everything is here. It is a challenging time of year getting products to arrive on time. Summer CHA started today and so many vendors are in Chicago.

I am also working on the late summer and fall schedule....HOLY SMOKES!....where is the summer going?! We have had only 76 hours over 75 degrees this summer.....doesn't feel like summer has even begun here in the Pacific Northwest!

I'm looking forward to showing you all the new paper bag mini I have designed on Friday! I hope you like it! See you all then...

She's baaaaaack....

Hey gang! No, I didn't melt away in Florida! I had to hit the ground running as soon as I got back to finish up a few projects for the G45 CHA booth. Then it was kit assembly... and a few new samples..... and about a million loads of laundry, too.

Any hoo...I am back and we have a Ustream class tonight! I missed you all! We are making the Peekaboo Mini albums tonight and in the morning....

Due to a delay in product arrival, I moved the Tag! You're it! Mini album to a week later. I have a BRAND NEW style of paper bag mini that I will do next week....a Split Bag Mini Album... sneek peek tonight! I designed this one about 6 months ago and have had it on the back burner for just such a situation. I am loving how it is coming out and hope you do, too! I am using the Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" paper collection (LOVE it!) I will have kits for it up by tomorrow and the pattern by Monday.

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight at 7pm Pacific!

We made it!

After a very long day of flying (we left home at 9:30 am and got here at the hotel at 2am) we are at Disney World safe and sound. The debit card woes are in the process of being fixed...nothing really lost...just needed to do some juggling to get it to all work out. More of a pain than anything else. Thank you for your support!! I will post pictures later today!
