The GRAND FINALE!

Well, at least for this month, anyhow! I loves me the road testin' of the NEWEST
stamps and fantastic tools from Wplus9 Design Studio - It's like making sure the
food is seasoned properly, even though, you can tell by smelling - its FANTASTIC!



In other words, the WATER is FINE! The sauce is perfection and
THESE stamps are FABULOUS! As soon as the clock hits 12am,
July 10, 2011, I can WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend that you
pick these babies up! Throw in the dies - you WON'T be sorry!





And because it is our monthly, finale...
I'm tying up the fun, by untying a fun little
memory folder - I created, whilst thinking of
m'dear mum, who has JUST returned from the
land of LOVE, art and LIGHT ! Just a sweet
little place to maybe jot some notes or stash some
memorabilia from her fantastic journey... All the
while, giving a girl like me, a FANTASTIC place to
showcase many, many of the GLORIOUS pieces from
our new release! STAMPS, as you know, do like to get
out and ink up their heels, IYKWIM, and I, am always
ready to oblige, if my crafty time provides the opportunity!



Beautifully paired with Graphic 45 papers, Curtain Call,
I stamped, folded and festooned several vintage envelope dies,
a perfect place to store memories, artifacts and notes! I assembled
the pockets by using the bottom fold of the packet shape and gluing
it beneath an insert made from chipboard! It's a sturdy little guy!
Get ready - I'm going to give you the full tour!



Open!



Pull!



Explore!



Flip some MORE!



C'est la vie - it's ALL good!



The closest I've ever been to Paris, is Las Vegas! - but my night dinning in the Eiffel Tower
was all of the things I dream about in Paris, good food, romance and beautiful light......
{Don't recall much art though - ah well, C' est la vie! - that's WHAT stamping is for!}



I hope you'll be sure to take in the sights of the amazing designy babe, of
Wplus9, herself - Madame Dawn! I always adore the way she sums up
our group release event, and you can extract ALL the particulars of these
wonderful products, in addition to being SO inspired by her amazing eye!

Don't forget the rest of the crew! THEY always deliver: INSPIRATION!
