Where is Cindee?!?!

CHA is over and I am SUPER tired from a lot of walking! I can barely keep my eyes open now… As you may know from our forum, Cindee had food poisoning and she was not able to attend CHA with me this time …. : ( I often called her and bugged her from the show while she was resting though! Ha!

The best time I had at the show was when I finally got to meet up with Julie, one of our talented Tulip Girls from New York City!! I kept looking for a girl with BLUE HAIR but no wonder I had a hard time finding her! (she said the color faded away! :0) When she was talking about painting, she seemed very excited that I just had to ask her whether the walls in her house are like her scrapbook layouts where she utilize her painting techniques! Don’t you wonder too?! But I guess not… haha. I thought it was funny when I talked to her about paper colors in our future kits cuz it doesn't really matter to her since she will paint them anyway! Maybe I'll put all white cardstocks in her kits from now on! : )

We went to check out Alexis’ new collection, Heartsong, at the Green Street booth together while chit-chatting. Aren't they lovely?! One of her paper, Sarah's Smile, is named after her adorable daughter, Sarah, who we often see her Alexis' layouts! Well, I am sure you will be getting some of them in your future kit so stay tuned! : ) I can't wait to share what's in our future kit(s) with you all~!! Julie was so sweet and I’m SO HAPPY that I finally had a chance to meet her!

Whohoooooo~!! As I met owner Rebecca at Pink Paislee’s booth, she was so excited to show me this wonderful book and a layout displayed at her booth! Guess who created them?!?! …. Our talented TG, Holly Hank!! I kept on saying “Ohhh~ & Ahhh~” as I look at them closely! Aren’t they adorable?! Thanks for the great inspiration, Holly!

Paris Hilton was at CHA today to unveil her new line, 'Paris Hilton, the Creative Collection’ ! Here I am being one of the paparazzies in the crowd!

Are you ready to CHA-CHA?! ;)

I can't believe the CHA show is THIS weekend!  *eeek*!!  I *LOVE* these times of the year.. everyone's busy and buzzin' and eager to see the newest scrappy releases!!  

Alexis has started a "CHA Winter Release thread" in the Label Tulip forum, that is jam packed with sneaks from tons of manufacturers.  If you've ever wanted to see it all in one place.. I suggest you grab a cup of coffee and oogle through the yumminess in that thread!  Thanks to Alexis and everyone in the LT Forums who have shared a sneak and has made this THE spot to see the new goods!

So, I thought I'd do a random post of what new stuff I'm looking forward to... here I go!

I have to start with October Afternoon.  Their Cherry Hill Line looks awesome!  Cherries, apples, ladybugs, polka dots and newspaper.. hee hee.. what could be better.  Here are a few sheets I'm diggin from that line:

Now for one of my all time fav manufacturers.. Sassafras... YUM.. they've always got so much vintagy (I think I just made that word up) goodness.. and this winter's release does not disappoint!  If I HAD to pick a fav.. it would be the Anthem line.  And "hooooo" can resist those little felts.. hee hee ;)  CUTENESS!

And these brads.. eeek.. do you SEE that little deer head in there... *swoon*!...

Let's see.. what else....  OH YA.. Crate Paper.. I am looovin' the direction they are taking their new lines! .. this l'il sprout collection is WAY too cute.. you can't go wrong with owls and mushrooms!.. 

.. and just look at the rub-ons that go along with it...

Besides the irresistible robots.. the colors in the Orbit Collection are awesome!

I LOVE these Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons and alphas too..

.. and these from Maya Road.. what are they called??  Mini chipboard of some sort... = Major cuteness, = MUST HAVE!

These transparent stickers from Glitz are just gorgeous!!!...

Wow, this blog post seems to be getting a lot longer than I had anticipated.. I just can't stop myself!!!   ha ha.. ok... ok.. one more...

Totally loving the mix of colors and patterns in the new Pink Paislee Line, Fascinating.

Whew.. there.. I'm done.. I'll stop... for now :)  Have I mentioned I love this time of year??!!  So much to see!!  

Now that you've stuck with me through MY wants.. leave a comment and let us know what YOU are excited to see.. you never know, you're favorite product(s) just might end up in a Label Tulip kit in the near future! :)

January Kit!

Here is the fabulous January Kit for your view pleasure! And if you can believe it, it's even more gorgeous in person!

The Tulip Girls Gallery was absolutely stunning this month, as well. I loved that Holly posted her favorites on the blog last month, so I'm going to follow her lead!

Although it's near impossible to pick one favorite from each of these talented chicas, I'm going to try!


I love how Lisa sewed her title on this layout. And the messy paint behind the center mat is just perfect with the photo!


There couldn't be a cute Valentine Wreath than this one! I love how the hearts are layered on top of one another and the addition of the book pages is just perfect. Plus, who doesn't love hearts glittered with Stickles???


The way that Amanda cut out that patterned paper and cardstock is just stunning! I love the stitching on the title and the placement of the photos as well. So original!!


I can't get over Charity's awesome use of masking tape on this layout! And the colored pencils on the letter stickers just makes me want to stare at the details all day long :)


There are no words for this layout other than....WOW. The masking, the alchohol inks, the and cut elements...it's a masterpiece!


First off, the photos in this one just take my breath away. Add to that the great circle element and the cluster of flowers and this layout becomes an absolute favorite of mine!!


When I first saw this layout, I was stunned. It's just so original, so cool, so perfect. I love that Sasha scraps outside the box, quite literally this time, and does it so perfectly!

I hope everyone enjoyed our gallery this month! Hop on the message board and add some of your favorites to our list!

Happy Scrapping!

January Sneak Peeks!!

Hi there! We've been having a blast drooling over the CHA winter sneak peeks on the message board. If you missed the thread, be sure to check it out here! Please feel free to add any that we might have missed :D
The January kit is gorgeous, but what else would you expect from Label Tulip? From the awesome rubons to the fun paper combinations, this has to be one of my favorite kits! Especially because it pushed me to use ink, paint and masks, which I've never used before. And it was so much fun!!

So, please enjoy my sneak peeks above! And don't forget to check back on the 15th for the full reveal! I can't wait to see what the rest of the Tulip girls did with this great kit :D

How do you. . . . . . ?

Organize your stamps? Yup, those yummy stamps you get from Label Tulip every month? Let me show you mine :)

I 'lifted' the idea from a girl at one of the forum I frequent, and it works beautifully, at least for me.

See those clear pockets? Got them from Daiso, our $2 store with all the goodness and cuteness of everything from Japan (i think! LOL).

Many different sizes available.

I dump the stamps that come in set into a single pocketed page.

Yup, like these alphabets.

And the 4 pockets clear page with my Label Tulip stamps! Perfect eh?

All these pockets stored in a ring file, clearly I need to buy another file as this one is choking, but you get the idea :)

What's your system? Do share!
