I have just recently begun creating ACEOs and I am addicted. If you don't know what ACEOs are, you can read about them here. Basically they are baseball cards for artists' work.

So I bought a few from some great artists and now I am venturing out and making some of my own. I am having so much fun making these cards! They are a bit of a challenge because they are such a small surface (2.5" X 3.5") and I am so used to making 12 X12 scrapbook pages. But I love a challenge, and these are fun.

I have a collection of cute vintage images on CD and they are fun to use to make the cards. Some of these images are just so dang cute, it is unbelievable! I love the little girl ones.

Look for more vintage-type items when my new shop opens on this holiday season. I am going to have a chance to really play up my love of all things girly and pink since Lollishops is the "frou-frou friendly" marketplace!

Look at these great pages!

Holly in an awesome scrapbook artist and a really cool girl. She has used a few of my die cuts in her pages, and I think she has done some great things with them.

Here she used my alphabet circle in white as a journaling spot. When I created the circle, I actually envisioned it as a frame for a picture. I love that she did something with it I had not even thought of.

Most recently, she used my flowers lace paper in a page. I am not currently selling this die cut because of its fragile nature. I am making some revisions to it and it will be back in my etsy store in the future.

Holly's little girls are adorable and make great subjects for scrapbooking. Holly has great talent and I am so glad she is willing to share these images with us so we can see what she does with the die cuts.

Holly has two great etsy shops, ArtsyPaper and NameFrames. Both of her shops are among my very favorite on etsy.

Die Cut Mania

I have been on a roll designing new die cuts. It has been fun dreaming up these ideas and then seeing them through. I have had a couple of people buy them already - to frame and hang on the wall! So fun!
