There are 4 beautiful cards shown on this Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog posting. They're so used to showing off the pop-it-up die cards that they've titled this posting "Flat Cards . . ."  I really like the 2 cards shown below. Make sure to click on the link to see the other 2 cards as well.

Here's the link to the blog posting:  

Dreamweaver Stencil is open catalog at Art 'n Soul. These are their latest stencil and die designs.



We invite you to stop in at the store to look at all of the stencil and die designs from Dreamweaver Stencil and place your order. And as you can see from the new die and stencil designs, they're perfect for 'stenciling' and perfect for 'sten-zangling"!

Helene Metivier with Magenta has graciously scheduled a second "Christmas in July" card class on Sunday, July 20; the class on Monday, July 21, filled up almost immediately. You'll be one of the first to use their newly released fall and winter Magenta designs; they're not available yet and we expect the release to be just ahead of the class. Sign up now . . . this class is going to fill up right away! Stop in or call the store at 360.357.6820.

Over at IMAGINE Crafts, there's word about a Blog Hop with Altered Pages this month. Check this out . . .

"IMAGINE Crafts has partnered with Altered Pages for the month of June! Each Tuesday this month our Artists In Residence will be sharing with you the projects that they have created using the incredible products that we received from Altered Pages.
We’re excited to share with you the projects that the Altered Pages team has created using IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko products this month. We’ll be featuring their projects daily throughout the month of June so you can see what wonderful ideas the Altered Pages design team has to share with you!"
So check out the IMAGINE Crafts' blog tomorrow to see what some of the Artists-in-Residence have created with Altered Pages.

This was an email from Suzanne McNeill. She's the author of many Zentangle® books that we sell at Art 'n Soul. This email featured a uTube video that she had recently posted, "Zentangle® Peek-A-Boo Windows."

What a great way to start off the month of June . . . this beautiful weather is so wonderful. Seeing the world in sunshine is a real treat. The colors of spring jump out, offering so much inspiration. We hope the colors of inspiration at Art 'n Soul jump out at you; we'll gladly take the 'rap' for the time you spend creating and making art. See you tomorrow!

"Happy Monday Morning"
