A Sale, A Card, & other Scrappy News!

Hello, hello!  I'm popping in to share a few fun things with you today.
First of all, there is an awesome sale going on at Two Peas right now!
 The entire store is on sale, including workshops!  If you've been on the fence about signing up for my Journey Into Card Making workshop, now is a great time.  The online, self-paced class is only $9.60 this week!

There's also a new scrapbooking workshop available now by Jill Sprott called Scrapbooking from the Soul.  I just signed up myself!  Jill is AMAZING & this is a topic that I'm super excited about.  (Jill's class is only $9.60 this week too!)

I also picked up a few other things from the Two Peas sale.

This vintage grab bag looks perfect for documenting the upcoming school year!

I also picked up this new exclusive stamp set designed by Shimelle Laine for Two Peas.  It's perfect for my not-so-perfect life.  :)

I was excited today because my new Big Shot die cutter arrived today.  I had a Cuttlebug, but I *might* have broken it by trying to emboss things that have no business being embossed.  (Note to self:  wood veneer does not make a good impression in cardstock, no matter how hard you try to crank the knob of the die cutter.)

I needed a die cutter to to work with the new Letterpress tools that are coming from Studio Calico.  Have you seen the latest class?  Sign ups are going on now & you can find all of the exclusive plates + other tools here.

So, now that I have a functioning die cutter, I can finally use those cool metal dies from Lawn Fawn that I've been drooling over.  The dies match up perfectly with their stamps, making card making a cinch!  P.S. They're on sale at Two Peas this week too!
One of my favorite stamp sets right now from Lawn Fawn is their Critters in the Dog Park set.  There's a dog that looks similar to a French Bulldog in the set... but after I added a few extra lines & colored it in, it looked just like our Boston Terrier!  My son flipped.  He loves anything that resembles his best four-legged friend.

I used the Quinn's ABCs stamp/die combo for the sentiment.  Easy peasy!
The dog paws are also from the Critters set.  I just stamped them with Versamark & it worked perfectly with the black cardstock.

The heart 3x4 card & paper are from this month's Marks & Co kits from Studio Calico.  I used the exclusive stitching template in the Main Scrapbooking kit as a guide for hand-stitching the 3x4 card.

Thanks for taking a peek at my project & for visiting today!  Hope you have a good one!
