The LOVE Bug!!!

Well if you live in Florida, you have experienced a snowfall of lovebugs swarming everywhere. It felt like a lovebug snowfall on Monday. On Tuesday, they covered our dining room window and lined the doorway. I have never experienced anything quite like this in the six years we have been here. I guess it is just nature and spring time! Funny that my latest digital product is called the
Love is Plentiful Collection
. I promise you it was named way before the love bugs arrived, but I am finding it quite ironic! LOL. Full of vibrantly colored graphics and patterned papers in some of my favorite summer colors, this collection will brighten up any card, layout or project you have in mind. Here is a peek at it...

It features 22 items: twelve 12 x 12 papers, 2 borders and 8 graphics for $7.95!
You can purchase it exclusively at Mygrafico.
I would love to feature projects you create with this collection on my blog and
will post items here and in my Mygrafico gallery once I create them.
Hope Love is Plentiful for you today and always!

Hold On!!!

Life goes by at an amazingly fast pace anymore. For instance, our baby just got her driver’s permit and our eldest daughter will be a Senior in just three days. That means we are steps closer to being empty nesters....yikes, hold on! I am not ready for that yet. I am however ready for some R&R and vacation is coming up soon! These samples are super-sized page holders (aka corner bookmarks) that can be used for big books or magazines. I’m planning to read a few of those while on vacation;D!

I created these using BoBunny’s beautifully patterned cardstocks from their Flutter Butter Collection along with a 2-toned brown & green CS from Coordinations’ Chocolate Box collection.

These aren't the greatest photos, since I had to rush and take them in low light before shipping off these samples for a craft tradeshow. They were used as examples for a make-n-take project at the Glue Arts booth. Don’t you just love the colors and the sayings??? It was so fun to just cut around the graphics to create these page holders. Just imagine what else you can create with this collection.

If you haven’t checked out Glue Arts site recently, they have added some new adhesive products...Raise n’s, dimenisonal double-side adhesive squares and U-Cut-It 3-D Adhesive Foam Blanks, both which work great with embellishments, especially chipboard and 3D items like flowers or frames.
