New release from Dare 2B Artzy

Hello crafty friends,

Today and tomorrow the Dare 2B Artzy design team is celebrating a coming release and showing you a sneak peek of new paper and stamps to be released.  There are so many adorable new stamps coming and I think you will be excited to see what we have in store, including a moose themed set, reindeer and of course a ski bear set which I'm featuring today.

There is also a sale = 10% off with Code: Sunny10  until August 1st. New products will be in the store mid-August. We invite you to visit the Artzy Community over on Facebook to see all the sneak peeks as they are revealed today and tomorrow.  You can leave a comment here on this blog to be in the drawing for a $15 gift card.

Make a custom sash with Rinea foiled paper

Hello crafty friends,

A custom made sash is a great way to celebrate so many kinds of occasions - from birthdays, weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and so much more.  Rinea foiled paper is perfect for lettering a custom sash.  I created two very different samples - one for someone who's "over the hill" and another for a child.  I"m happy to share these with you here as well as on the Rinea blog.
