Tuesday Project Sheet - In Colors

SORRY TO BE LATE POSTING THE PROJECT SHEET TODAY!  I know that you will enjoy this one ~ particularly if you have joined my Monthly In Color Share Club!  What is that?  It is a common sense approach (budget wise) to having it 'all' but over five months which means that you are not ordering over $200 worth of In Color products all at once!  There are five stampers in each group and, right now, I have two groups.  I have a third group started but I need two more stampers to complete the group.  EMAIL ME for details and let me know if you are interested and I will get these wonderful colors ordered right away for you.  In the meantime ~ enjoy this pretty card!

Over the rainbow with Stampin' Up!

Something new has been added to Stampin' Up!'s product line and it is amazing!.  Maybe, it's just me because I LOVE COLOR!  But, I think all of us will be adding this to our WISH LIST.  RAINBOW GLIMMER PAPER (153056) is part of the ARTISTRY BLOOMS SUITE on page 130 in the new catalog.  We have used glimmer paper before and it adds a sparkle to any project.  Now we can add sparkle and color ~ you can see it below ~ fabulous color!

Rainbos paper and 2 cards

More pictures and information about this fabulous paper tomorrow but I wanted to remind you that I still have room for YOU in my NOTE CARD  CLASS on Saturday morning this week.  It's at ten in the Cat/Art Studio in Norfolk and we will be making six Note Cards using the FOREVER GREENERY SUITE  on page 109 in the new catty.  The cards are simple but elegant and good for any occasion ~ just add a little note inside and put them in the mail.  The class fee is $18 or FREE with an order of $50.00 in the class.  Let me know today or tomorrow morning as I am preparing all the supplies tomorrow.  EMAIL ME NOW.
