Finally done....

So school is now finally done, so hopefully I can begin to enjoy my summer and the many travels I will be doing this summer for Tattered Angels. I'm very excited to share with you some of the samples of the newest products! The first is the new Glimmer Chips called Frosty Memories, a vintage seasons collection of 49 chip board pieces. This line will also have three different choices, the stamped version, the ephemera, and the white embossed. Notice the beautiful detail in these ephemera pieces.

And for those of you who already love the Glimmer Screens, there are now new screens to add to your collection. Four new packages (each with 3 new screens) will add to your collection of screens. These screens will complement and coordinate with the new Glimmer Chips. The four new additions are Decorative Corners, Winter Trees, Winter Crystals, and Vintage Ice. These Victorian-inspired screens will add the perfect touch to your scrapbooks, cards, and other craft projects!

The last really cool new product to tell you about is something really new to Tattered Angels. It's called Glimmer Glass. These pieces will coordinate with the current Regal and Frosty Memories line. They are beautiful transparent overlays. These can be stamped, sprayed with Glimmer Mist, bent or curled.....the possibilities are endless! They will add a wonderful elegant touch to any project you may be working on!

These pictures show only a small sampling of what you will get in each package! Remember, these new products won't be available until mid to late July. Look for samples made with these new products from the Tattered Angels Design Team soon!

Having a little fun....

Here's a really fun picture of Wendy, the owner and creator of Tattered Angels. This was taken

at the Memories Expo in NJ after a busy day of doing demo and sales. You can see she is happiest when she's good and messy! :) It's a good thing the Glimmer Mist washes off!

We'll have our six new colors of Glimmer Mist at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington next week. Those new colors are sage, cinnamon, auburn, simply khaki, twilight and huckleberry. They work beautifully together for splendid fall images. If you plan to be at the show, be sure to stop by and check them out!

I'm also super excited about the new Glimmer Chips and Screens that will be out in July! I'm anxious to begin playing and creating with them. Check back later for a sneak peek of these new products! Until then, I still have one more day of school left!

Almost done...

As I sat and watched my students take their finals today, I realize how happy I am that the school year is almost over! I'm glad so I can finish up at school and begin to focus on the summer and use the "other side of my brain"! Much of my summer I will be busy creating and traveling for Tattered Angels as a Designer, demo artist, and production assistant. My next trip is to the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, TX. I leave for that show on June 3rd.

I feel very fortunate to be on the Tattered Angels Design Team. Check out the blogs of the other six extremely talented designers listed under links on the right hand side. They continue to inspire me with their ideas and creativity! I'm also blessed to know Wendy Senger, the owner and creator of My Tattered Angels ( and all the fabulous products she has created! It's very exciting to be a part of the early stages of a new and upcoming company, and to work with all the great individuals who make up the creative team at Tattered Angels (shout out to all the warehouse Glimmer Chicks, day and night crew!).

Being a teacher, and having my summers off, gives me the opportunity to travel to scrapbook conventions across the US with Wendy and others from Tattered Angels. It's great fun going to these shows and meeting customers excited about the Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Chips, and Glimmer Screens! It's even more fun to demo these fabulous products and see the enthusiastic response from everyone! With these travels I also get to meet many talented designers and artists in the scrapbook industry. My first opportunity was at winter CHA in Anaheim, CA, and was that fun, but a little overwhelming. More recently, I went to the Memories Expo in NJ with Wendy and her office manager, Trish. Oh the stories we could tell! We threaten to write a book about our four day adventure, so watch out! We had so much fun and met tons of really awesome people! (and even saw a little of New York!)

So, I will keep you posted on future excursions with Tattered Angels. Next show, as mentioned earlier, is the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, TX - June 5 - 7th. Hope to see you there!

More photos of mini album

Life's been busy.......

Yes, life has been busy! Trying to learn how to set up this blog site has been challenging enough, but I'm also trying to end the last few weeks of school (I teach at a high school) and also get my daughter graduated and throw a graduation party. Thankfully, the graduation is over and the party was a success! Friends and family from a couple of different states + a backyard barbeque + a sunny day = a great afternoon party! I made this fun mini book (Senior) for my daughter, Brianna, for her graduation. I included pictures we've taken during this year with family and friends. She was very excited when she saw it and it was the hit of the party! It was fun to create using papers in her high school colors and embellishments, ribbons and fibers to add dimension. I sanded and inked the edges of the letters for a bit of a distressed look, even though the content of the mini album didn't really call for that look. I enjoy distressing most everything I work on!!
