Quietfire and Nature's Print Shop

Those of you who follow will remember the article about Quietfire a few months ago. (ahem, that article was the reason I had so many people saying "Don't I know you?" at CHA. Terre at Spellbinders clued me into that in my last hour at the show!)

The month after my article, Bibi Lindahl from Nature's Print Shop was featured in  Well, Bibi and I began corresponding and we are "cross-pollinating"!  Here is my first card using my (so far) favourite set of Bibi's stamps.  Watch for more using Bibi's stamps soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper and Pixels - Bookbinding Project

In January I was approached to design and write up a project for Paper and Pixels online magazine.  They preferred a bookbinding project and not knowing their audience, I wasn't sure how complicated to make it.  I finally decided on a hardcover no-sew journal making great use of Spellbinders Labels Four in all the sizes! (and hey, Spellbinders dies cuts the Quietfire bookcloth really beautifully)

Paper and Pixels is a beautifully produced online magazine and "my" issue is available online now.  Happy binding!

CHA 2012 - Quietfire Style

I had no plans to make a video from my photos at CHA, but then somehow this just happened....  I think it helped me process the whole thing.  I'm still in recovery mode.

You can watch it here or on YouTube.  I hope you enjoy it!

If you watch it here, this is the little blurb:

Here are my very quick impressions of some things I saw at CHA. I took almost 100 photos on the floor and it wasn't nearly enough! (I didn't plan on making this video when I was there.)

The first part is a little two day vacation at Santa Monica and then on the CHA.

Why such fast music? It mirrors the event! Every time you turned around there was more eye candy. Amazing people, amazing displays, amazing talent.
A huge thanks to everyone who demonstrated their products for me, who put up with me taking their picture and who greeted me like a long lost friend!
See you next year!

P.S. You can stop the video any time if you need to see a photo for longer!
