I am drawn to books like a thirsty traveler to an oasis. I read every night before bed and if I can’t for some reason, I have a difficult time settling into sleep.  I love the tactile feel of the pages and have not yet adapted to digital formats like my husband.  I love the look of text flowing across a page and disappearing into another time and place. It took several years of marriage before I could convince my husband that when I was reading, I was ‘doing something’ and that he did not need to leap to my rescue by pointing out other entertainments or ‘things to do.” I come by it honestly. My mom is a reader and in fact has a couple of rooms in her house filled with books. I remember her getting a box of books every month from some far off library, and…

All of you stamping fans are going to LOVE visiting the Impression Obsession booth! Stamps and dies….as far as the eye can see! I especially loved how this booth was organized…. all the stamps and projects in groups with the designers’ names. There were so many beautiful card samples and projects as well to showcase all the stamps! Many displays featured a Valentine theme. Even Easter stamps were on display! There are so many background stamps to choose from, aptly titled “Cover A Card.” Don’t you love the square shape? Samples of these background stamps were mounted on boards with inks of many colours. Samples of die cuts were also on boards for display. Not only do you have an amazing choice of countless stamps, you also have an incredible bunch of dies to add to your shopping list!  To see the full line of Impression Obsession products, click HERE to visit…

Everyday Memories I NEED For My Lifetime! by Cathie Allan I LOVE INK …..  I LOVE INK .. .I “simply” LOVE INK! And, YES pigment ink is one of my favorite types of ink. “Why?” you ask. Beyond the fact that it is the most lightfast, most archival ink on the market … it is just so darn versatile. I can use it in so many applications that the variety of techniques that I am able to accomplish using pigment ink seems virtually endless. Do I use it for “simple” stamping … yes. Do I use if for embossing …. Yes. Do I use it when I want colors to blend seamlessly … oh, yes! Do I use it for stenciling … uh, huh. Do I use it for resist … abso stamping lutely. Can I turn it’s ability for staying wet longer into a “smear your art…

Hello everyone – Kim Gowdy here on the blog today! I have a confession. I feel scrapbookers /card makers guilt because I was just NOT on the ball this year when it came to making Christmas cards. Not just making them, I couldn’t seem to get them mailed out either. Some years are just like that. For whatever reason; our time gets pulled away from us and used for other things. So I choose NOT to stress [too much] over this and thought I can still share homemade cards. This year I will send out homemade Thank You cards, for Christmas gifts received, and make a few Happy New Year cards to  those who REALLY should have gotten at least a store bought Christmas card! So I created this little card to send out after the holidays! Pretty simple card using 3 different stamps from Impression Obsession…how I love their…
