Celebrate the Easter season with the March 2014 Sampler, "Rejoice in Easter".  This Easter issue offers project ideas for a memorable Easter season.  The projects this month are 'eggcellent.  Inside you'll find Easter-themed greeting cards, a mini spring flip-flop album, an elegant Easter daffodil suite to stuff with goodies and much more.

This months template is the Bunny Weathervane.  A great idea for your Easter table centerpiece.

January PCS now available!

Time to release the 5th year of the Paper Crafters Sampler.  Once again we start the first issue by preparing for upcoming Valentine's Day.  We've made a few changes this time around by avoiding the most common color associated with Valentine's Day, red.
Inside the January issue, Venetian Valentine, you'll find soft and subdued colors, fancy flourishes, embossed surfaces and splashes of gold.  Tres le femme! The template of the month is the Fliptop Heart Trinket Box.

Here is a second sympathy card that I worked up using Young Vermilion, Artisan Accents doilies and the old Build a Brad.  I don't know why SU! doesn't keep the Build a Brad in the catalog, because I love that product!

All product used is SU!, unless otherwise noted.

Paper:  Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgundy, Print Poetry dsp stack

Ink:  Black, Creamy Caramel, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Regal Rose, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray

Accessories:  Big Shot, Window Frame framelits, 1/2" Circle punch, Ticket-Corner punch, Build a Brad, Artisan Accents, natural trim,  Bravo Burgundy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, brads, Festive Paper Piercing pack, Dimensionals, aquapainter, white gel pen

The December issue of the Paper Crafters Sample is available!!

Winters frigid days have crept in while our attentions were focused on the gift-giving holiday.  Soon our surroundings will be transformed from brightly-colored holiday lights to neutral colors of the winter season.

Our December issue celebrates beautifully muted colors of the season.   The bases of the projects are inspired by woody bark and snow-covered, leaf-less trees.  Insert a splash of color from the winter cardinal, glistening snowflakes or sparkling icicles and you have a “Naturally Winter” issue.

Sadly, I've got four sympathy cards to make this week.  I made two of this card for the first two friends who have suffered a loss.  I CASEd the basic idea for the central image from a card that I remember seeing -- unfortunately, I can't remember who did the original.  If she sees my card, please let me know and I'll give you full credit!
