Fall ahead

Hi All,

Just thought I would surprise you by having another blog entry and not having you wait weeks if not months. Surprised?

Summer is zipping by and August seals the last of summer for me. I am already thinking Christmas, in fact, Christmas was on the brain since May. Since premiering our fall/winter collection beginning of July and designing it previous to that, Christmas seems just around the corner. I hope to get on top of it all by designing our family Christmas card by the end of the month. Seems ambitious, but a goal to work to.

Have you thought about Christmas or the upcoming holidays yet? We have added so many fall designs that it will get you primed for the winter. Try a pop-up card. You'll be surprised how easy it is to use. The fall leaves and pumpkins will help you transition from summer to the cooler seasons.

You probably have seen pop-up card instructions and how to make one.

The big question is, "When was the last time you made a pop-up card, since you know how to make one?"

Usually the response is silence, because even though we know HOW to do it, it takes too long to make. With all the measuring, marking and cutting.

Well, with the new kits, we've taken the hard work out and left the fun stuff. The fun is the embellishing, coloring and designing. Try a variety pack and see what you can come up with. Email me your creations. Better yet, bring one when you come visit us at a show.

We are heading out to Novi, MI tomorrow. We were well received last year and are looking forward to reconnecting with y'all. There is still room in the class on the Friday. You can find the class link here

Have a fab day!
