EK Success CHA Sneak Peak

Happy Thursday everyone! The days are just flying by, I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. I think it's because it's summer vacation! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Little V and I went to the beach yesterday, a last minute kinda thing, had a great time - though I missed a few spots with the sunscreen and that looks kinda Today I want to share a few things with you that are coming out from EK Success. These are not samples that I made, but my team mates created them. I'll be posting mine in a few weeks. I'm pretty sure Nicole Ratzlaff made the gingerbread house, love it Nicole and Becky Cates made the Boo! House. Two very talented ladies that I'm honored to know! And, if you're going to be at CHA stop by and say hi to me at the EK Booth, I'll be demoing pens (brushables, writers and what ever else they have for me! ) I'd love to say hi! As a sidenote, I love the new paper shapers.....scalloped circles and square - to die for!! P.s. I'm not sure why the images are so small, sorry about that!!

Art Blanche®

What shape will your imagination take? With the Art Blanche™ new collection of customizable shaped books and chipboard shapes you will be inspired. Themed customizable books give you a blank canvas with the flexibility to paint, ink, chalk, stamp, distress, decoupage, or cover with paper.

In August, the Autumn/Halloween shapes of a spider web, ghost and maple leaf will be released.

In September, a gingerbread house, snowman, Christmas tree and a double mittens book will round out the seasonal assortment.

EK Success will also release 19 new sets of chipboards alphabets, numbers and popular shapes which coordinate with our existing nesting Paper Shapers® punches (sizes small – XL). You can punch out paper and completely cover the chipboard shape in one step, without the hassle of tracing and cutting the shape! August Release.
