Book of Card Layouts

I found the coolest thing on Split Coast Stampers! There is a sub-forum called "Splitcoast Challenges." In this forum, there's a thread called, "Downloadable Sketch Files." There are color Sketches and Card Photos in PDF format as well as Word.  What a fantastic resource. You know, sometimes you just get in a rut, or your creative juices are simply not flowing. These sketches provide some great inspiration, soooo I printed them and using my trusty spiral binding machine, made them into a book. I decorated the cover with some retired and soon to retire papers and a current stamp set called, "Flowering Flourishes." Now whenever I need some inspiration when designing a card, it's at my fingertips!
If  you belong to Split Coast and would like to see them, here is a link.

Wanna hear something about the new Stampin' Up! catalog that's due out in June? Demonstrators got their magazine this week and we know some things {giggles} I can't show your pictures of anything yet, but I can tell you the names of the new In Colors for 2013-2015. They are sooooo pretty!! I can not wait to get my hands on them!! 

Coastal Cabana (darker Pool Party)
Crisp Cantaloupe (lighter Peach Parfait)
Baked Brown Sugar (like a cardboard box)
Strawberry Slush (lighter Primrose Petals)
Pistachio Pudding (lighter Mint Melody)
