Summer FUN!!!
















We have both granddaughters here through July and we are getting ready to go on vacation soon.

All three of us girls made two coaster photo albums each in preparation for the photos will will be taking while on vacation. That way, when we come back, we can put our photos in our scrapbook albums and the girls can take theirs home as a reminder of their time with Grandma and Papa.

We all made two albums with 6 coasters each. That way we can get about 6-10 photos in each one with some room for journaling. Hopefully, we'll finish them later this summer and I can post the finished products.

The above are Nicki's photo albums. She chose one set from a previous catalog and one from the Spring Serendipity Magalogue. (We can still order from this Magalogue)

These are Zoey's albums. She chose cupcakes, one from the Magalogue and another from a special promotion.













And, finally mine. These adorable frogs are from a catalog a couple of years ago. Someone had sent me a cute scrapbook album page trade a few years ago with these frogs on them and I never used it....so I took the little cards off and attached them to my albums.











The dining room table is still full of stamping supplies...so guess while it's in the 90's this week, we'll be doing more stamping!!!

The New Catalog is HERE!!!

I received my order of catalogs on Monday! It's been a busy week....but now I can share with you the new catalog!!!

It's smaller than last year's catalog but it's the same size as the Serendipity Magalogue that came out in the Spring only with 128 pages.

We'll be getting a new Fall "Serendipity" in September. I like the smaller size as it's easier to carry along in my tote bag or purse.

TAC has gone back to displaying full sized images, introducing a panel on the side that shows coordinating inks, card stock and ribbons. Plus hardware, too, if applicable. There are also new ideas and projects to try.

On the Personalized stamp page, there are new icons that you can have added to your personalized stamps.

Now that the stamp sets are full sized, again, I have noticed stamp sets that I didn't remember being in last year's catalog. Go figure!!

Saying stamps are what TAC is known for and there are lots of new greetings in the new catalog.

A new addition to the catalog is the Purchase with Purchase program...replacing the Gift With Purchase stamps. I LOVE these. They are a great bargain at only $2.95 with a $30 purchase.

I love the hostess sets, too.

I think what I like most about the catalog is the 'simplicity' of it. I don't have to search through countless STUFF on each page to find what I want. It's very well organized and simple, yet smart and sophisticated.

I don't feel inundated with so much stuff that I can't concentrate on what is really important for me in stamping....the basics!!

I do have to say that probably one of the first things I'll have to buy, first, are the cute little acrylic mini cupcake albums on page 115.

Some of the first stamp sets I'll have to have are "Sunday Stroll" on page 23, "Funny Farm Phrases" on page 45, "Summer Boys" on page 48, Exotic Bird Collages on page 87, and Hanging Out (A Scarecrow set) on page 105.

Be watching for some samples that I will upload soon with some of the new stamps.

I do have a few things I have worked on over the past week or so...waiting for our Catalog to arrive....and I'll share those in the next post.

Have a Great 4th!!!!

Hugs,
Char
