“we’d be so fantastical.”

I didn’t think that I could ever top my 2009, but 2010 has been so kind to me. It’s like all of my dreams and fantasies are coming true. Plans are still in the works, so I have to keep hush hush until then. However, I can’t wait to share some of the exciting endeavors in my future. Hopefully, by the end of the year, I’ll be able to share. 😉

I do have some scrappy stuff to share today, though.

Punky Sprouts is a new manufacturer that debuted this past winter CHA. They sell various albums that are filled with chipboard, canvas, and acrylic. Suzy, their lead designer, is teaching a couple of classes at one of The Great American Scrapbook Conventions. The owners of Punky Sprouts (Shelly and Doralisa), thought it would be fun if I came along to help Suzy teach her classes. Texas, here I come!

If you are in the Texas area, take Suzy‘s class because I’ll be there helping her teach! I’d LOVE to meet up with some of you!

Punky Sprouts has teamed up with Pink Paislee and Tattered Angels for this mini album class:

It’s the latest Queen Bee line from Pink Paislee, and you don’t want to miss this class! I saw her working on this one, and it’s GORGEOUS in person!

The other Punky Spouts class that Suzy is teaching is sponsored by Crate Paper and Tattered Angels. Fun stuff, don’t you think?!

Isn’t that cute?! I love the colors to this one. This class is going to be so much fun!

On another note, if you haven’t heard, this week Imaginisce swapped products with Tombow. Tombow was beyond generous, and they sent the Imaginisce design team loads of products to use! 🙂

I played with their Metal Liquid Glue!

I, of course, opted to use some of the Live Loud collection from Imaginisce. The metal liquid glue is NO JOKE! Have you ever tried to get your paper to stay put?! Well, my paper is completely stuck to the tin box.

Wouldn’t this project make for a cute way to give away a gift card?! …or if you are willing to dish out the money, how about a new iPod inside the tin?! 😉

Combining Imaginisce and Tombow equals ENDLESS possibilities! For more projects, make sure to hit up both manufacturer blogs. There is a ton of inspiration being shared!

I’ll be updating with more of the latest I have been working on, but in the meantime, here are some sneaks:

Oh, and I almost forget! I have a winner to the last Wacky Wednesday! 🙂 Seriously, you guys are super crazy creative when it comes to making up stories about scrapbooking and Martha! LOL. It is thoroughly entertaining to read what you all conjugate into a story. …and the winner is:

Yay! Your name was finally randomly picked. Look for some goodies in the mail, Miss Julie!

I’ll catch you all later!

    So so happy that you are having a super year – congrats on the Punky sprouts! (what a cute book!) and how cool to get the tombow adhesives – good adhesives are so expensive and you can never have too many. Most of the time I end up being a glue stick girl. Sad but true! LOL!!!!! Love your little sneaks and hope to see more soon. Have a great week!
