I am hoping to have a great year with my TAC business and have a Happy Stamping Year. Stop by and visit often as my blog is going to be a main focus for me.
I will be doing a segment on here. It will be Thursday's Tech's. I will have the directions and a sample of a technique every Thursday. I will also debut to you a filing system for techniques that I have been using and teaching for over 2 years now. That will happen this Thursday. See you then!

Isn't the color of the catty great? It looks nice and summery. The cover was designed my Peggy Bum gardner. She is a creative angel that lives in Oregon. Her upline is my very good friend Char Wilson.
I have heard many good things about the new catalog. Some of the Kansas angels that have gotten their catalog shared with us on PaperWings which is a forum site for Demonstrators. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like information on PaperWings. Remember you do have to be a Demonstrator to be approved.
Here are some of the things that will be in the new catalog:
All new Hostess sets and GWP's.
New Paper Collections:
I can't wait to see these. I love all of our paper lines and know these will be just as good.
Chipboard Coasters Scalloped and come in round or square.
Cardboard Recipe Box & Dividers - sounds awesome
Metal Hardware kit - approx. 300 metal pieces (bookplates, hinges, buckles, ribbon loops)
Metal Alphabet Kit
Tins - White candy tin, small square and round metal tins.
Scrap-O-Dex - like a rol-o-dex that has white sheets
DCWV Chipboard Stacks
Bind it All
Scalloped Punches! Mega and giga circle and squares
Decorative Corner Punches
I am so happy about some of this stuff. The scalloped Mega and Giga circles and squares are just awesome. I love using these and am glad to be able to use them in FUNshops. The Bind it all...I have one already and have been wanting to use it. I already have a class scheduled to use this in January.
New Alphabet Stamps
Double Line Bet - similar to open chunky, less chunky and they have two lines going around.
Outline Bet - just like the Double Line Bet, but with one line.
Pattern Bet & Pattern Numbers - open alphabets with a doodle pattern (the A has some flowers, the H has some hearts...the P has stars, etc.)
I was so excited to get the message out about the new catalog. If you would like to purchase a catalog from me please email me at email@example.com. You can also visit my website at http://ritaholmes.ismyangel.net/ after the first of January and vew the catalog online. You can also order directly from there and have it shipped to your house.
I will be back to share some cards soon. Thanks for looking and I hope you are excited to see our new catalog as I am.

This page was sent to me by another dear friend on our group. She knows Lisa loves Maine and she sent a picture of one of the lighthouses in Maine to add to her page. Working with a 6" x 6" book was a little tricky for this but it turned out nice.

He was so alert. I can't believe he is so new and his eyes are open for some pictures. Here is a picture of him with his sister who is 6 and his "big" brother who is almost 16 months. Yeap...little Eric was a "slip up" but a good one at that.
This is why I haven't posted anything. I do have some cards to post but another day. I hope you enjoy my little ones. I sure do. I better go. I have a class in 10 minutes and I should get off here. Thanks for looking!

I actually made this card for most of my Christmas cards. I got the idea from a card that Mary Moilanen, another TAC demonstrator, had made. I love it. It was quick and easy which is right up my alley right now. The TAC stamp sets I used were Curls and Swirls and Be Jolly.
This was a very quick card we made in my class that was called "Last Minute Christmas Ideas".
Here is a list of the TAC stamp sets I used:
Curls and Swirls
I used chalks to color the reindeer and used Crystal Lacquer on his nose to make it shiny and wet looking.
I used a regular piece of ribbon between the stamped ric rac ribbon.
My last quick card. I used TAC Merry Wishes Paper and the Spirit of Christmas stamp set. This was the fast card I believe I have ever made. You can sure kick these out in a hurry.
I have one more class this month and it is called "Just for Fun". We are going to do some "NON Holiday" cards. I figure everyone is eating, sleeping and drinking Christmas right now and need a break. I hope it is fun.
I will get off here and try to be productive a little. We had snow today and all I have wanted to do is lay around and be cozy. Have a great night!!!!!
