It's just around the corner...

It's hard to believe that August is coming to a close and the kids are almost back to school (HOORAY!). Before we know it Halloween will be here and there are some amazing Halloween collections in the store. I believe there are at least 5 different manufactuers represented with spooky lines in the store right now. I just whipped up a sample from My Mind's Eye of their 'Haunted' collection. The papers are all a distressed craft and black combo and most have one side flocked. SO cool!

The papers all coordinate perfectly and there are some neat elements including a sheet that makes it easy to remember everything from a trip to the pumpkin patch and how you decorated the house. The flocked papers and stickers add a lot of dimension and texture that doesn't really translate in a photo.

Keep your eye out for a class designed with these papers at Two Scrapbook Friends.

I know we shouldn't wish the summer away but I can't wait to get Halloween and Christmas photos to go with all the amazing papers in the store!!!

My Mind's Eye and more

I spent yesterday at a 12 hour crop at Two Scrapbook Friends. I chose to continue working on samples of the new collections that are quickly filling up the store. Amanda was unpacking My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found line and I had to check it out. First thing I noticed was GLITTER, lots and lots of glitter, everywhere. Then I started noticing all of the amazing embellishments. Beautiful brads, buttons and trim.
Here are a some MME samples:

Portobello Road

*This layout was inspired by one from the MME website by Amber Packer

Market St.

Union Square

Madison Ave.

I changed the original tissue flower by adding crochet trim and a different center

More detail shots. Seriously gorgeous embellishments!

This layout was the first one I did of the day. It's called Cottage Christmas by Imaginesce

and when you start your day with a layout called "More Glitter" you are pretty much setting yourself up for this....

I saw myself in the mirror when I got home last night and couldn't believe how much I sparkled!

One more sample from We R Memory Keepers' Funfetti line, perfect for birthdays and other celebrations.

Another great day. Can't wait to see what comes in this week!!

let the samples begin...

Back to the store on Tuesday and Thursday and it was back to the FUN! The new products are starting to role in from CHA and they are going to keep me (and everyone at TSF) super busy.
So far Karen Foster and 3 Bugs in a Rug have arrived and here are a few of the samples I've created. To see them all check out the TSF gallery.
Three Bugs in a Rug-Fun collections of big die cuts and cute images. There are so many papers in each line the combinations are endless

Seriously! How cute are these penguins??

Sweet papers to document all of your baby's firsts.

A little sample of the new Echo Park line snuck in too!

There are so many new collections flowing into the store you're sure to find something perfect for all of your photos.

one more day...

Well I almost made it through two full weeks without internet, some sort of record for me. Our friend arrived yesterday and knowing of my wee computer addiction, he offered to set up his laptop. WOOHOO!! I so needed a fix.
I whipped around facebook and then skipped over to Two Scrapbook Friends to check out the new releases, so AWESOME!

It's been a great vacation. Weather has been fabulous although I did get a sunburn today after 13 days of religious sunscreen application. Argh.

I've taken loads of pics,about 250 just of the chipmunks that are our new best friends.

As fun as it's been it will be good to get back to 'real' life. Oh and the boys are in camp next week which means a few quiet moments for me!
See you soon!
