Exciting week - brand new Designed To Color issue & Saturated Canary YouTube Team!!!!!!

Hi everyone! 

This week has been an exciting one for me and I'll tell you two reason why! First, our 4th issue of Designed To Color has JUST been released! 

It is always exciting when a new magazine is *finally* published after ALL the handwork, sweat & tears have gone into it. Thankfully, you don't see any of that but The Color Crew certainly does and they continue to stick by encourage and inspire!! Please check out the August/September PREVIEW ISSUE and if you would like to purchase this or sign up for a full subscription, just see the website Designed To Color for more information!

The 2nd reason I'm super excited this week, is that Krista Smith of Saturated Canary has just launched her YouTube channel and I'm blessed to be a part of an amazing group of ladies and designers. This week is the kick off and several videos have already debuted. I was SUPPOSED to have a video this week but my camera chargers was MIA all week (hubby finally found it last night!) So, this awesome team helped me out and took over my spot for me. I WILL have a video for you on Monday thought so be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the new SATURATED CANARY YOUTUBE CHANNEL so you never miss a video. After our kick off week in which we had videos all week long, a new video will load each Monday thereafter.

Ok, that's all I have for you today! I just wanted to update you and now I'm going to get back to finally getting crafty!!! :D Have a happy weekend!

Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!

Surprise! Today we are celebrating Leanne Poe's birthday by throwing a fun birthday blog hop party! We thought we'd gather a few of her friends and design team members to celebrate her special day. If you came here from Eva’s blog you are in the right place. If you didn’t you may want to start at the beginning a Yumi & Fumi's Handmade Crafts blog.

Happy Birthday, Leanne!
I'm so excited to see you following your own dreams with your super cute new stamp company! They are sooooo cute. I loved meeting you at Winter CHA - we had such a blast, I only wish we could have hung out longer! I can't wait to see you at the next one. I hope you had a super fun birthday (so sorry my post is late ---- things totally got away from me this past week!) Here is a card I made for your birthday - you know how much I adore The Greeting Farm and since I didn't know about your new stamps (where have I been?!?!), I used some of my favorite stamps. I am definitely going to be placing an order soon, though! ;)

I colored the Amelia from the OA-Lovey Dovey set with Tim Holtz Distress Markers on watercolor paper. I paired it with Webster's Pages papers and used a super fun Action Wobble to pop up my image on the card. These are so awesome because you can mail your card flat but your recipient will get a lovely surprise when they pull it out.

Be sure to stop by Leanne's personal blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!! Next up on the hop is Danni.

Thanks for coming!
