Trying to give my readers what they want....

I would like to try and add some structure to my website, in doing that, I wanted to give you what you want to see!

I was thinking along the lines of:

Monday - Mojo Monday (sketch or color combo) or Music Monday (using lyrics as inspiration)
Tuesday - Technique Tuesday
Wednesday - Wheel Wednesday (showcasing one of SU wheels)
Thursday - Template Thursday (featuring a new template, I might run out of these quick)
Friday - Favorites Friday or Friendship Friday or Feature Friday (featuring projects by other stampers)
Saturday - Scrapbook Saturday
Sunday - Sayings Sunday (maybe providing new phrases for your cards and scrapbooks)

Other ideas:
Cricut day or maybe Sure Cuts A lot (saturday or sunday)
3D projects
Color of the week
Stamp set of the week
Sizzix Saturday or Sunday - featuring a new sizzix die
Sketch day
Sketch of the week

What would you like to see, the last survey I did asked for more samples and I have diligently been trying to provide them to you, please tell me your ideas, help me structure my blog posts a little bit, tell me what you want to see!

Provocraft to release 6 new Cricut Cartridges

In the latest Design Studio font update, a mysterious SIX cartridges appeared: From My Kitchen, Winter Woodland, Sweethearts, Serenade, Everyday Paper Dolls and Picturesque.

Sweethearts is a perfect cartridge for Weddings and Valentines day while Serenade could be used for decorating your home, dressing up an album, as well as cardmaking. these are both solutions cartridges, which means they will be less expensive and carry fewer images.

Picturesque is a full size cartridge, packed with swirls, paisley, birds, butterflies, card and tag creative feature keys, as well as gorgeous ornate corner feature key.

Want to make recipe albums for gift giving this year? Well, From My Kitchen is the cart for you! It's jam packed with all the word art remotely associated with cooking, as well as cooking type icons such as stove, blender, mixer, oven, aprons, salt and pepper shakers, and pigs, cows, sheep and roosters. I am so very glad that I waited to start my family recipe album!! Now what will I do with all of those stickers I have been collecting?

Winter Woodland is the "go to" cartridge for this Christmas, as it's filled with even more gorgeous animals (the reindeers are amazing!), snowflakes, rabbit, bird, houses, and loads of word art. Not only that, there's a full size alphabet with shadow feature. Also includes a card feature and frames! Folks on the boards are chirping about this one!

And finally, Everyday Paper Dolls is being released. Lots of hair choices will be available!

The rumor on the cricut boards is that these might be released in Spetember some time, but I cant confirm that!

Butterflies are free to fly


You know that old saying, "if you love someone, let them go.... blah blah blah" I have been trying to do this very thing for the last month or so, pretty unsuccsessfully, I might add and trying to be creative at the same time. I decided butterflies are the perfect symbol of setting free the ones we love....

This also brings to mind, if nothing ever changed, their would be no butterflies (I think I have this on a stamp somewhere) I know that when one door closes, blah blah but give me something that will make me feel better today!!!

So, here are my butterflies, free to fly away!

A couple of pink and black

This week's challenge on LNS was to create a pink and black card, I am not thrilled with either of these, but I had to try the first technique (geez now I forget what its called, something stone) I fell in love with it when another blogger used it.
Fifth Avenue Floral is still one of my favs! I dont think I will ever get tired of these water-colored roses!!
