New Basic Circle Thin Cuts

I have been going crazy with our thin cuts lately...and here is an example! I saw some wine bottle holders at the store for $3.99...I thought...WHAT! That is expensive. So I thought I would make my own.  
I started out with a 3 1/2 x 9 piece of white cardstock, score at 3" (see first picture) Then I stamped a wreath at the top, then used our Basic Circle thin cuts (Z3318 $12.95) to cut a hole in the wreath (this goes over the bottle). Then I cut out "Happy Birthday" with Eggplant cardstock using our Happy Birthday thin cuts (Z3304 $9.95) and adhered it to the white cs. I added some stamped balloons (C1660 Happy for You Stamp set $13.95...one of my favorites) 
They are fun to make...stop back on Friday to see what else I made using these thin cuts!

2017 Cover Page

Happy New Year!

Every year I create a cover page for that years album...and here is this years page.  This is the layout that my customers created at my Open House on January 1st to showcase our NEW Seasonal Expressions Catalog.

It is a tradition that my husband and I take a picture each January 1st and this year we were blessed to have our grand daughter spend the night and be here for our 1st picture of the year!  What a great way to start the year!

I love to have this done right away and put it in my 2017 album.  It makes me feel "caught up".  I do have a few of these for sale, so if you want one, either email me and let me know, or stop over and grab one!  But once they are gone, I will not be making any more.  So get yours now.

Also, if you need to get your 2017 album, we have 9 different colors (black, grey, brown, navy, teal, red, white, sea glass and pink.  You can get these in either D ring or post bound and are $29.95.  These albums are very good quality albums!  I LOVE them!  Check them out on my website and get yours ordered now.

Alternative Layout

Earlier this week I posted the January Monthly Group layouts...and I made the SAME layouts, but used a different color background and stamps.  This first layout is using one of our new colors,  Gypsy.  I added balloons and made it a birthday layout.

The next layout I used Gypsy again and added a little Blossom too for another birthday layout. The last one I made with our heart and love thin cuts!  I used Raspberry and Blossom for this layout.  Just by adding different colors, you get totally different layouts! Give it a try!

January Group Layouts

Here are my January Monthly Group pages.  If you would like to come make these pages, check out my "upcoming events" tab here on my blog for dates that I have groups.  You can come as a guest and make them!  They will get you ready for all that snow we will be getting.

I love that they are neutral so you can add any color to them!  Make sure you get out there and take some snow pictures!  Because these pages will be PERFECT!
