When I first got the new 2011 Fall/Winter Idea Book in my hands I was like a kid, smiling from ear to ear! So many fun new accessories, stamps and papers! Where is a girl to start? J One of my fav new products that made me smile were the adorable Just Bloom Flutter Paper Shapes on page 128. Look at those cute butterflies! For only $5.95 you get 68 butterflies in 4 different styles, ranging in size from ¾” to 2 ½” in Colonial White with black designs. They will definitely bring a smile to your face! You can stamp on them, sponge them, dye them with reinkers and water, or dress them up with brads, sparkles, pins and more. My favorite way to color them is simply with ink and a sponge. Check out this card I made with the Roxie papers (another thing that makes me smile!). I sponged Tulip ink on 3 flutter paper shapes then dressed two of them up with Bitty Sparkles (Z1263). The third butterfly was accented with one of the pins from our Bling Assortment (Z1466). Just thread the pin through the body of the butterfly and then attach with a glue dot. See why I’m smiling? It’s so fun and so easy! What new products make you smile?
