Your wreath sent me over the edge! It's beautiful! I love how you sprinkled a few polka dot leaves into the mix. I was going to hold off...but we all know how that goes. =) lol. I am looking forward to playing with the leaf prints set soon. Thanks for sharing such wonderful cards with us. I always walk away inspired.

Hi everyone! Just want to let you know that I've decided to move my blog to Wordpress. I have been trying to figure out a simpler way to update my blog and in conversations with my Mother-in-Law I learned that... Continue reading

That is one fantastic giveaway! I see my sister commented already about visiting me here in the States this Summer. =) I am also looking forward to spending an entire month together. Since moving from Sweden in '99 I don't get this kind of time with her anymore. But starting next week we'll kick off Summer together by having fun with our kids and enjoying each others company. We'll be stampin' too, that's for sure!! Happy Memorial Day weekend.

Your card is just fabulous. I don't think I've ever seen anything I didn't like on your blog! Right now I am very intrigued by the vintage style. It's not something I do or feel very comfortable with, but I am gearing up to try it. =) Thank you for inspiring me today and so many mornings throughout the week. I love, love, love your cards.

This is a total dream come true! Seriously! It's the perfect format for what I was hoping to do with all my photos, only I didn't realize it until I read your post today. =) I just wanted a simple, quick, regular yet not overwhelming way to record our family memories. Thank you for providing a way to make that happen!! I am so excited I had to IM my husband right away and tell him all about it. lol.

Great inspiration as always! Really nice to learn some more details about the Color Coutore line too. I love the new website! Congratulations on having it up and running. The new search functions are awesome and the look and feel of it is just fun!! I'm super excited. =)
First off, the new green color is beautiful! And the floral set - stunning! It brings back sweet memories of me, my sister and my mom stopping by the side of the road to pick wild Lily of the Valley. The usually bloomed in May (of course)which is the month both my mom and I celebrate our birthdays! So fun. Love the scent of these delicate flowers too.
Amazing projects! Love how the soaps turned out! I think you just gave me one more craft to try out. =) Thanks for all the inspiration.

Thank you for sharing your finished book. Love the simplicity of it. I am new to Digi Scrapping, so new in fact that I am still working my way through Jessica Sprague's "up and running with photoshop" class. I found it recommended here on your blog and I absolutely love it so far. I have two little boys (2 years and 6 months old) and all of a sudden I have a TON of pictures just sitting in my computer. They're begging me to use them and I think seeing your posts on digital and hybrid scrapbooking has helped me find the way I would like to document the story and put these photos in albums. Thank you for that!! I am intrigued by the use of templates. It seems like a simple and less time consuming way to get started. (something that is of importance at this point in my life). My one question is:(and you kind of answered it at the end of your post) is it possible to alter words and texts that appear in a template. I like the layouts in the "week in the life" templates, but I may not always want it to say "monday" or "week in the life". I would like to use it for just any story I want to document. An answer to that would be much appreciated. Again, thank you for inspiring me to begin to scrapbook my photos and figure out a way to tell the story of our everyday life.

Thanks for a thoughtful post, Joan. I love reading your blog and look at your cards. I have noticed that at times I get so caught up in the frenzy that surrounds new releases that I feel I MUST have those stamps!! Funny thing is though, that once the release is over and I go back to look at the sets a few days later, I am not so sure I like them anymore. It taught me an important lesson - don't shop during release night. =) Your favorites may run out of stock, but if it's something I really like then I'm sure I can buy it at a later date. Who says I must post only "current" stuff? The reason I started my blog was simply to share what I make. It's easy to think that a card isn't "blog worthy" unless it's all new products. I am trying to watch out for that too. If you don't love what you do it can quickly become a burden. Just my two cents.
