Sketchbook 2 Class by Kelly Purkey & the Studio Calico DT: No, it's not a product but it's something that I signed up for because I have been kicking myself for not taking the first Sketchbook class.! And this one has all new sketches and layouts. It's $25 for the 4 week online class.
Check out what Kelly's class description:
Sketchbook 2 is a four week class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun. From August 2nd to August 27th a PDF will be delivered to your inbox every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday so you can work at your own pace. By the end of the class, you'll have a complete sketchbook of 12 original sketches, 36 layouts, and an additional 36 sketches based on those creative pages. All the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class... you won't see them anywhere else!The best part is that you will be receiving an example layout from me for each of the sketches, along with two example layouts from a member of the incredible Studio Calico design team. They are the most talented team out there... you won't be disappointed!

Whiff of Joy FREE Digi Stamp: Who doesn't love FREE?!!! And how cute is this little guy? I mentioned him in last Thursday's blog post because I thought he would make adorable Cards for Kids (especially for little guys). Sometimes I find it hard to find boy-ish images that I love but this one really knocks my socks off. So cool!
Hero Arts Hello Flags Wood Block Stamp: Flags/Pennants/Banners are all the rage and this darling little stamp from Hero Arts is adorable.
Lawn Fawn Stamps: I just received Critters in the 'Burbs and Critters in the Sea. The designs of the stamps are darling and the owner, Kelly Marie, is a gem. Lawn Fawn will be hosting a Cards for Kids Blog Hop on August 18th. If you'd like to participate, check out Kelly Marie's blog post HERE. Want to know just how awesome she is? Even if you don't have any Lawn Fawn stamps you can still play along with the Blog Hop! AWESOME!
Life is Good Collection by Echo Park Paper Co.: They really kind of rocks my world. If you know me, you know I love patterned paper. This company does patterned paper GOOD. I bought it all.
Fiskars Premium Cut Line Paper Trimmer: I have literally tried dozens of paper trimmers and Fiskars has outdone themselves with this one. Perfect for card makers with the measurements of most popular card sizes shown right on the grid BUT the arm swings out and makes it perfect for scrapbookers too (which I am both). Perfectly straight cuts every time. So incredibly happy with this paper trimmer!
Hero Arts Folded Cards: These are my favorite cards to use for cardmaking. Smooth. Fabulous colors. And dare I mention that the coordinating layering papers and envelopes are available as well? Perfection.
NEW Tim Holtz Alterations Dies: These are available for PREORDER HERE. My favorites are Tag & Bookplates Movers & Shapers and Mini Ornamental Movers & Shapers Die. I just love Tim's attention to detail. Read Heidi's (Simon Says Stamp) Blog Post HERE for information on the dies. :)
