Portrait Day by Olga Heldwein

First off… Happy New Year!!!! Wishing you all a happy, healthy new year!!  We’ve been a little quiet over here but for good cause. My sister is the BEST organizer I have ever met – something I deeply lack.  She’s a teacher and was off for the holidays.  Much to my surprise she who dared never step in to my scrapbook domain did the unthinkable… She organized the store!!!  Of course who can find anything now that it’s organized. Guess I should explain… the store isn’t a store where customers walk in to so who needed it to be organized? It’s a web store so my piles and bins… Anyway – it’s organized and will make things much more functional once I get used to it. So thanks Elyse for the days of hard work!!!

Because of the organizing efforts, holidays, CHA around the corner… we haven’t posted in a while but rest assured 2014 will be a great year and lots to come – new designers, new products and plenty more.

All this being said, reason for the post today… a brand new kit from the VERY talented Olga Heldwein from Poland. Portrait Day is a beautiful layout filled with layers and trinkets.  Whether you are novice or expert in misting techniques, I’d say Olga does a great job at showing a few new ways to put those mists to work with the techniques she uses on her video (when you purchase the kit, you get access to the private online tutorial as well as the materials to make this layout).

And like just about all of our other kits… we created a Bonus Layout so you can see how the leftover pieces, mist and a few extra products can create similar projects.  Here’s our take:

Thanks for stopping by.  Might be a bit of a lag here since we are heading to California for Prima’s Art Venture and CHA. We will post pics from the show as soon as we can as well as the products we plan on carrying.

I can say this about new products to hit our store soon….

  • Memory Box – new dies and stencils (should be soon)
  • Prima – oh you know how I love me some Prima.  Cartographer, Mists and Ingvild products for sure. Will keep you posted and do pre-orders and ship dates as soon as we can.
  • 13Arts – Timeless paper collection and paints are on order along with 2 new kits from Aida.

We’ll have new kits soon from Adrienne Ford and Misty Russell. And wait till you see some of the designers we have lined up for 2014.  More talent from around the world that is sure to impress and inspire!
