Jar of Love Fireflies Tutorial

It's the end to another great week here in the Studio.  I've been playing with new Holiday Catalog products - and thoroughly enjoying myself!  There's something about new "toys", isn't there?  ((smile))

The Holiday Catalog will debut on September 1st. If you are an existing customer of mine you will receive yours in the mail within the next week.  If you don't receive it by September 1st, please contact me.  

Many of you aren't thinking about the holidays just yet.  Some of you have kids that have just gone back to school and you're settling into a new routine.   Rest assured, the months will fly by.  

BUT, as I prepare, I realize that many of you aren't so today's project tutorial features a beloved summertime critter - the firefly.  

As a kid growing up in Illinois we used to try and catch them. When we did, we cupped them between our hands and look inside for the "light show"!  God's design is wonderful isn't it - a harmless bug that lights up!

This clean, simple and easy card is a perfect to any occasion simply by changing the greeting.  Don't forget to click on the image below to download your free copy of the project tutorial.

Quick Crafting Tip - Framelit "Fitting" Storage Solution

I love to fussy cut.

I know, you think I'm crazy, right?  

What I don't love is fussy cutting dozens of images when I'm mass producing cards for a swap, invitations for a wedding (like the ones I'm working on now for my nephew) or even my Christmas cards.  

This is where my love of framelits and thinlits comes in! No fussy cutting required. 

But, as much as I love them there's one thing that has made me crazy - and I'm betting it makes you crazy too!

  • Have you wrestled with getting the dies neatly back into their plastic storage envelope?
  • Have you wondered if you've missed one when putting them away?  
  • Have you found they just don't "fit" right when you try to adhere them to the paper sleeve they come with?

PROBLEM SOLVED!   Today's quick tip video has the answer.
