i have been on a kick... and i LOVE it when that happens! i have been in the zone.. and it feels great. it seems like it's been a long time, and it causes me to wonder what has been the super-charge? i guess it's just the natural ebb and flow of creative energy! ...take it while you can get it. for me, creating classes, and ideas that i can share makes the creative process so much fuN... as a result- soo many new ideas!
it's the big holiday week here, and most people are leaving town! with temps looming above the 110's, who wouldn't want to take off. but we are sticking around! i have mentioned that i am teaching Wed and Thurs of this week... 3 brand new classes, as well as HKS secrets... here's a look at the projects:
totally techniques (WED 1-4pm)
we are using everything RANGER, and my INVISIBLES. in addition to learning 7 techniques to use w/ the invisibles, we'll make this super cute FRESH book...
House of 3 Project Central (WED 6-9pm)
in addition to the 'celebration countdown' project, we'll be making the ALL NEW 4th of July book i featured here a couple days ago! perfect for the NOW!
HKS Secrets is a Masking/layering class and we'll be making 5, 12" layouts. (see some of the projects here) FUN! (thurs 1-4pm)
"We are Family" featuring the YUDU (thurs 6-9pm)
we'll be using the Yudu to create this fun book, full of summery papers from my Summer Sun line, and an EXCLUSIVE set of clear embellshments that i have created for this class on the Yudu. i love how the inside turned out, i have been adding photos into this today.
ok, so in May at the CE preview day, Tim Holtz was there and showed me his new "tiny attacher"... i had seen it at CHA winter, but it wasn't until i played with it at preview day did i realize that it was truly a fabulous stapler. now, i have been thinking about it since then, and finally just had to get it...especially to attach the clear elements in the "Family" book i just made. ok, this is an absolute MUST HAVE!! you might think.. how is it different from just a 'mini' stapler-aside from the size... holy cow, it's awesome!
REASONS i LOVE it!:
#1 goes through everything like butter; even chipboard and acrylic, ribbon and fabric.
#2 staples totally tight, so the item you staple holds secure, even with one staple. (although i am a double stapler)
#3 you can see and control EXACTLY where you want the staple to go- good for attatching tiny things (imagine that)
#4 the grip makes it easier to use than a big bulky stapler or a small travel one.
i absolutely think it's worth the $15.99
DRAWBACK: it's not pink. (i'm over looking that, wink!)
if you don't have one... get one! buy it HERE... get the staples refills too!! put it on your wish list... you will LOVE IT!
