Back from Leadership

I got back on Saturday from Leadership Convention which was held in Houston, TX.  What a great event! Met some new stamping friends and learned lots. We had time to check out samples of projects others have done and try out some new products. The one I think I’m most excited about is the new Blendabilities alcohol markers.  

IMG_2056   They will be available early this year in sets of 3 (light, medium, dark) in the 12 colors shown in the photo. A color lifter pen will also be available. More info to follow.

We made some make and take projects on Friday evening. Here’s one of them:

  It’s made with the single stamp Vivid Vases #133818 $11.95, Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper # 132995 $10.95 and Aqua Painter #103954 $16.95 for a pack of 2.

Stay tuned. More info and pictures to come!
