New paper pads from Authentique are at Art 'n Soul, as well as the cutest little file folders that are new.

Authentique WINTER papers in 6x6 pads

Authentique RENEW papers in 6x6 and 8x8 pads

They are also introducing 4 file folders that you punch out and fold. These little folders would be perfect in a journal, and they'd make a great card accessory for the front or inside.

Els at Elizabeth Craft Designs is sharing her color chart of their new Silk Microfine Glitter. I know there are some of you using these kinds of charts so you can readily determine which colors you own before buying more colors.

If you'd like to print out your own on a full sheet, here's the link to the color chart, courtesy of Elizabeth Craft Designs!

by Els for Elizabeth Craft Designs"I cut 1 inch and 1/2 inch strips from our 5 x 11 Double Sided Adhesive Sheets and just started to stick them down, added the Silk Microfine glitter, polished and added another strip. At the end I did add a flower that I made using our Flower Dies and cut the pieces from the Velvet XL Self Adhesive Sheets, Shimmer Sheetz and Card stock. I should have been doing other things but this was more fun!"

by Els at Elizabeth Craft Designs"Almost Valentine! As much as I love my husband I am a little bit in love with our Lady Bugs die as well:-). For this card I used the Silk Microfine glitter in Silver (nr 603), True Red (nr 614), Basic Black (nr 601) and Cool Diamond (nr 642 or 641). Then of course the Lady Bugs Die (nr 711) and I did cut these out of Red and Black Velvet XL adhesive sheets. I used the eClips to die cut the hearts. The border is a mask that I made out of the back of our Double Sided Adhesive sheets. The back has one paper side so it sticks to the eClips cutting mat. For the big Heart I put a piece of the double sided adhesive on card stock and cut it with the eClips. I think it is almost YouTube time because so much to show!"

John Petersen at Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko has a short video allowing him to introduce the new Kaleidascope colors that will be available in another couple of months. He'll be using these in his class on Saturday, February 23, at Art 'n Soul. Go to this link to see the video:
