Catching Up


I just returned from a fabulous three-day road trip with my sister.  Along the way we found a scrapbooking store that had some of the new Tim Holtz paper packs,  I have been waiting for these to hit the shelves since I saw previews of them from the Winter CHA show.   This one I picked up was not the one I originally thought I wanted, but when I saw it in person I fell in love with it.  This 12x12 tablet is filled with pastel vintage patterned papers not only in 12x12 sizes but also in pages of 6x6 quadrants as well as ACT sized backgrounds.   It is amazing!
Due to the road trip (as well as some internet problems when I returned) I am way behind on checking out all the tags from this week's Tag Tuesday.  I hope to get to that very soon!

When I saw the preview of Tim's new papers, I knew this was the one I wanted. I'm only 'grungy' to a certain point, and I appreciate the pretty soft colors.

Ooh this looks wonderful - I suppose one could stamp very lightly on light pp to obtain this effect, but having the real thing is better! You are enabling me again!

Oh, this looks so pretty! We have a convention coming April 24th here in Ohio - hope to get some of Tim's (and Wendy's) new stuff then. I'm also taking a Stampers Anonymous class the 23rd. Can't wait!

I'm sure you and Jacqueline will come up with some beautiful cards with these papers!!
