I can tell this is going to be a great spot for inspiration. I'm going to be adding it to my list of "must visit" sites.

NanaBeth said...

Wow they are gorgeous. As for the desolving of the design team-the words that would correctly express my opinion would be in very bad taste.

suzann said...


I am such a stalker! I have loved ya'll's work on Paper Salon.

But, I am thrilled to see you all on your own blog. Your first post is beautiful and inspiring. I look forward to see more of your work here.

Good luck!!

This is a wonderful site. I'm so excited to see what you've got in store for us. I'm always looking for GOOD places to find inspiration without all the chit chat that hs nothing to do with paper crafting. Cards and pages would be great, using Cricut and Cuttlebug, would be great also. I'm a new user and need ideas on how to use these machines. Thanks so much for the great blog site decicated to our craft.
