Yummy new Crazy for Clings....

We've been sneak peeking over on the Hero Blog, great new stuff. I keep saying that our newest release is the best I've seen in years...but this release is hands down my favorite!

I didn't have a chance to do much for the release, but I did make the cover cards.....




Here's some up close shots I took on my back deck...these are such AWESOME stamps!!!



And the flowers...super YUMMY!!!



Now that I've got Scrapfest behind me, I'm moving forward.... Right now I'm finishing up stuff for my blog week that starts MONDAY!!!  I'm excited, I've been cranking out projects this past week for it.  I've also made TWO videos!!!  I leave Thursday for Houston to join my buddy Jennifer for a small trade show, I'll be Hero blogging from there.

The kind UPS man brought me some stamps yesterday for the 2010 catalog and I'm making samples for that as well....good stuff coming down the pipes, can't wait to share. 

I'm in a good place right now, I feel energized and creative!  Sometimes I'm blank in the head...no ideas...no motivation, but for some reason... right now....I feel like I'm on fire! 

Also...stayed tuned, once I'm back from Houston and have most of my catalog stuff done, I'll be purging my studio big time!  I've got TOO MUCH STUFF.  Here's my idea...I'm going to get boxes from the post office, I'll fill them up and seal them. Then I'll do some drawings here on my blog... and will send out the boxes to the winners. It will be like a grab bag give-away!

My garage is holding some new purchases...I've picked up (used from my hair stylist), 3 tall IKEA shelf units, (2 of these), (1 of these) and I got me some lower kitchen cabinets (unfinished drawer units), next I've got to pick out a counter top...I'm re-doing my whole workspace... can't wait! I redid it a couple years ago...but as things go, when you think you've got your space figure out...you don't.  Hopefully this time I'll have it right!

I've got to get back to work, hope you all are well!

Enjoy!!!

Hi Shari - love your cards, can't wait to see them on the catalog cover. :) And what an awesome idea for a giveaway - how exiting would it be to receive a surprise box of teats in the mail. Hope you are well xx

Hi Shari- love the cards and I can't wait for the purge I mean the give away. I know what you mean about changing things up. I just got my room done last March and because of all the great Hero Arts stamps I keep buying I think it's time for me to visit IKEA and start reorganing too. Have fun in Houston!

Debbie said...

what fun to redo your crafting space! Not only a chance to make it like you want it but you get to handle everything and see what you have again! I think it gets those creative juices flowing!

I've been a fan of Hero Arts since I started crafting about 12yrs ago and a big fan of yours especially since I attended one of your workshops here in the UK at Dawn Bibby's shop. Hope you make it over again next year 'cos all these new stamps etc. are giving me a buz too. xx

Shari, I've just popped over from the Hero Blog - WHAT a week you're giving us there WOW!!! I've never seen so many amazing projects packed into one post (repeated every day) in my life - thanks for sharing your awesome talents with us! I'm running out of superlatives to leave comments there :)

P.S. I really love the new Clings catalogue cover - downloaded the digital version and would love to have a real paper one in my hot little hands!

Best wishes for a great time in Houston!

Shari your cover cards are beautiful, I just love your style. I don't know how you can part with your craft stuff, we did a charity sale last year and all I could part with was a gilloutine....I ended up buying more stuff though!!!Hmmm. I love Ikea for storage,just perfect for craft. Have fun re-designing your craft room! xxx

TRace said...

Tiffany said...

Wow! Shari, love your cards on the front page of the catalog, beautiful!! Those flower and butterfly images are amazing! Can't wait to see what is in store for 2010!

Nancy said...

I'm redoing my craft work space also (I've acquired so many new Hero Arts stamps in the last few months and I need to house them somewhere) I'll be looking for an update on your finished work space to get some ideas!

Good to see you in Houston. What a nail biter yesterday. Love that we get a post season!

Susan said...

I really like these cards - they have such a crisp look to them and the colours work beautifully.
I hope you'll post some more examples of this range.

You sure sound like your busy lately, making videos and trade shows. Wow.
