another saturday special on sunday -- july 22

My blog is a little late this week. I blame summer, but you could also blame the summer challenge has kept me busy and preparing for a crop at Auntie Em's and getting ready for Anna Dabrowska's class this Tuesday and drooling over all the new products at CHA.

CHA is over. There are so many scrapbooking goodies for every taste that everyone is excited. I've already ordered a few things. Okay, a little more than a few. But I have a ton of faves on my list -- too many to post here really.

Despite the hustle and bustle of CHA, there were some amazing posts online this week. I hope you enjoy these.

1. May Flaum creates some pretty amazing projects using doilies. This card is my fave.

2. I love the intense bright colours of Dylusions, but I am resisting them (no pun intented). Partly because I'm not sure what I would do with them. May Flaum has a great video to show you how to use Dylusions. "I'm not worrying about perfect. Not at all," she says. May Flaum is so great so check it out!

3. I love the butterfly on this card by Andrea Budjack, especially those pins!

4. The colours and stamping by Julia Stainton from Belle Papier on this card are delicious.

6. Bo Bunny has a three great examples of doodling. It's cool and I can do this!! Love the doodling (and everything else) about this Irene Tan layout.

7. I am starting to have a sizeable collection of washi tape. I love this storage idea by Ursula Schneider.
