And so our hero is on his way, but what awaits him???

When last we saw our hero he was biking on his way to the great National Scrapbooking Day sale at Jen Adkins Designs at Paperthreads. The question is, what will he find when he arrives...

dum, dum, dum (insert great dramatic music here!)

What's this I see? A new file? Packed full of classic comic book memorabilia?! Speech balloons, expressions, sound effects, and more?

Holy Toledo, Batman! We hope both our hero and the file make it to the store on time!

And that's not the end of our story, tune in tomorrow for the continuing adventures of (I don't know, I can't come up with a name for our hero...leave me a comment and make a suggestion...you might be featured in the next edition!)

Check it out...

I just wanted to share a pic of a project one of the ladies at Paperthreads created with my Quilted Heart Border that I gave away on Customer Appreciation Day...it's a decorative holder for wine bottles made by Esther W-B!

Isn't it beautiful? And what a way to take it "outside the box" and use the border for an entirely new purpose. I love it Esther!

Watch for the file to be up soon at Paperthreads!

Living on the edge!

I got some new files finished and waiting to get uploaded to the store! Here's a sneak peak at one that's super cute (and versatile!)

It includes 14 different borders, each in 2 widths (8.5 and 12 inch). Ten of the borders also can be used as page or mat edgers! I included instructions on how to do this in your software type. Here's where you can get the collection in the store.

Sweet as a cupcake!

Here's the last file I have to share pics of right now...It's a cute little title and adorable (and yummy looking) cupcake diecuts.

It comes with two different title options, the one shown above (which is straight across) and the one below in a semi circle.

Don't forget to leave a comment! Today's the last day to get entered into a drawing for one of my new files!

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback! I'm glad you like the new files! The Soda Sweeties and Crowning Glory files are now up in my store at Paperthreads.

Here's a pic of the companion file to the Garden Gnome...it's Toadstools.

I hope to have these all converted and uploaded to the store next week...keep checking back!

Did you rub the lamp?

Okay, so rubbing the lamp can't make ALL your dreams come true, but it can make some of them happen!

That's right, you've got it! Everyone of my files at Paperthreads is on sale for 40% off! But you better hurry...this dream goes away at midnight Eastern Daylight Time today, April 1st, 2009!

And, while you're here you can download the genie lamp file for your electronic cutter. (these links have expired)

Do you believe in gnomes?

Gnomes run rampant in European folklore. The first garden gnomes were actually made in Germany in the mid 1800s. They are felt to be helpful to the gardener, particularly at night...but have been reported to roam about the countryside as well!

Here's my take on the sometimes kitschy (is that even a real word?), but always cute gnome!

The toadstools are available as part of another file that I'll share with you later!

Don't forget to leave me a comment on one of the new file previews to be in the drawing for a free file!

And if you believe in gnomes...you must believe in genies! Click on the lamp below to release the genie. He'll make every one of you dreams come true!

Rub the lamp!
