Fiskars Summer School

Have you been checking out Fiskars Summer School? I hope you like it – I’ve been putting in mega hours (behind scenes) getting the designer projects together & getting them up on the site each Tues & Thurs. I have to say – my little ‘what if we…’ thought about doing it has really turned out better than I anticipated! I *love* what all the ladies are bringing to the table AND seeing how crafters take the ideas and make them into their own creations.

Why bring it up now? I’m taking part as a ‘teacher’ as well, and today you can check out my projects here:

First- it should come as no surprise that I share a cardstock-only layout. I’ve been loving on those so much I made a whole project now class for Big Picture (that should open ANY DAY!) Oh, and I didn’t even realize it until after I was done, but my sketch that I use is totally a ‘recipe’ I use in scrapbooking this summer!! In case you’re wondering about what my Recipes for Scrapbook Success is going to be like just know I’ll be sharing a post all about it SOON.

In the meantime I promised a give-away and here it is.  A fan-tabulous Fiskars portable rotary trimmer (I’ll even throw in some spare blades!), a L star squeeze punch, a 3-pack of Fiskars adhesive, and a border punch of your choice (boundary waters or apron lace). Want more? Odds are there will be some surprise goodies too! (THANK YOU FISKARS for letting me give away fun stuff!!)

Just leave a comment here to be entered – I’ll draw a winner on the 29th!
