Boo! New Pins... Eek!

Hiya crafty folks! Just a quickie post today. I've been MIA *here* but still busy as a one-armed paper hanger. While needing a break from other projects-in-progress I got hit by the Halloween stick and made up new pins for the shop. Here's a sampling, to be listed by the end of today.



I don't know about you but I've designed a handful of fun Halloween cards and tags in my head. If only I could get by without sleep... those hours would be very useful in the studio!

Thanks for visiting today.

Cheers,
Susan

There's This Party, See...

Hiya! Up to my ears, folks. Having only one work surface and the penchant to spread out, I can work on one thing at a time. Here's a bit of what's on my table top now:


The lucky birthday girl is having a sock hop and inviting loads of cool cats and chicks. The music will go on to at least 10 o'clock. To spare you I won't break into song, but the soundtrack of Grease has been a staple in my head lately. I even sound like Sandra Dee when I sing... really.

This is a small fraction of the parts. There are a lot more to color and cut. For now I'm going to be "systematic, hydromatic, ultramatic...."

*********************************

Thanks to everyone who voted for my neon pinks! I won 3rd place which means a $50 gift certificate to Bello Modo. Yay!

I put everyone's name in a bowl and out popped sweet Kira! I know exactly what I want to make for you. :) Please use the email button to the right and send your mailing address when you get a chance. I'll clear away a space and get crackin'!

Cheers,
Susan

{WIP} Butterfly Mini Album

Hiya friends! When I needed to start a new project last week I stood in front of the paper wall and waited until something jumped out at me. As I looked at the shelves and stacks of paper collections I focused in on the pack of Bo Bunny Gabrielle. I originally bought it to make an album, so an album I made.

Sort of...


It's been a while since my last big album and I forgot how much of a labor of love it is to complete. This one is 6 pages and has around 16 photo mats. I adore this paper collection and am so glad I saved it for the album. All the details aren't finished, but when it's complete I'll post it. I think I'm going to recuperate a bit first. :)

That's it for me - sorry to be a mini album tease.... :)

Cheers,
Susan
