Happy Long Weekend!

Had a good long weekend - filled with family and friends and no little BBQ'ing! Oh yeah love that BBQ. So a little bit to catch up on...

A good friend of mine Barb W. made me an adorable card from the Lime Rickey Paper line (just in from Basic Grey - it's awesome!) that has a pocket inside that is perfect for gift cards or (her idea) the small Beta Stamps from Basic Grey that I got in by the gross.

So here are the instructions for this cute card - straight from the designers mouth!

Cut one piece of orange cardstock, 12 x 5.5 inches. Score at 4.25 and 8.5 inches. Cut white cardstock to 4.2 x 5.45. Punch edge of inside flap. Glue white cardstock to inside of card. Use glue lines or glue dots to hold down flap at top and bottom. Decorate the front. :)

Btw, it's made 100% with stuff that I bought at the Scrapbox. DaisyBucket sentiment stamp... unity stamp numbers on the front, Fiskars border punch, Tim Holtz edge distresser, inkpads, Basic Grey papers and chipboard embellishment (Lime Rickey).

Thanks Barb!

The Basic Grey Website is also giving us a sneak peak of what their new release is going to be - I don't want to speculate at this point because all I see is their home page preview (go to and keep refreshing the homepage - it will show you different paper lines - look for the one that has the scottish puppy andn the girly bee - you will understand it when you see it).

I think that just about does it for me. I would like to take a moment to personally blame a few of my customers (You know who you are) who went on and on about the Twilight series of books and now I can't put the silly things down! I'm on book 4 and I hope that I'm not up again until midnight reading about star crossed lovers...again! Curse you! (Shakes fist futiley)

Sigh - will be around for most of this week - lots of classes happening. Keep check the blog for updates on what's going on - you don't want to miss a thing!

Have a fab week!

The Long weekend = much time to squeeze in Twilight.

I am done them all now. Sigh. Hours in my life I will never get back...

Basic Grey mean the ones that just arrived today in the store?

I fell in love with the sneak peeks of the new BG... LOVE the plaid. I'm stalking Kelly Goree and Layle Koncar's blogs so I can see the new lines as soon as they post anything. :)

And thanks for sharing my card here. It was fun to make... it gave me a good excuse to go home and PLAY right away after shopping. :)
