EK Success launched new punches this summer. I finally purchased one even though I have flowers I can make on my cricut. I wanted to see how easy this way might be.
After many tries, I found it hard to make the petals align without over lapping petals as I was wrapping. Yet it can be done especially with practice. But if you don't have a cricut then this is the next best thing to get the look of paper flowers hand made. I think this may be the only one I will be purchasing though. But that's my personal opinion and since I don't have a need for them then the room in my craft storage might be available for other tools. But I do love tools.
I am trying to get back in the grove, it seems hard with the kids back at school, mainly since summer hasn't decided to leave Texas yet. We so badly need so much rain here. And for the last three weeks my allergies have just exploded due to all the dried grasses and no rain. Everytime the wind stirs up, I start sneezing. I was out the other night with my kids getting the bikes aired up and the ride had to be postponed. I just could not be outside without sneezing. Miserable. I take daily claritin, but it may be time to switch it up since I have been taking that for a few years now. Maybe its lost its effectiveness.
Okay on to other things. I know I have more pictures to post of all the lastest and greatest items that I am now seeing at my local Joanns, Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Sadly our best scrapbook store that has been here for over 13 years is going out of business. Sad to see that happen. So I guess I am going to be giving more of my purchases to the online retailers to find that perfect items.
Head on over to www.aboverubiesstudio.com if you have not yet. Megan has come out with more dvds and her own line of paper for the cricut. Her dvds are what I used to finally understand the in's and out's of my cricut...
Have a great week and keep crafting!
