Hello Fellow Doodlers!

It's officially Summer and I don't know about you, but I love the warm sunshine, going swimming, outside activities, and summer vacations of course. So here's three different summery paper collections you may enjoy using on some of your summer themed projects. Graphic 45 - Tropical Travelogue, Echo Park Papers - 4th July, and Webster's Pages - Sunday Picnic.

Vintaj Patina Paint Kits - Vintaj Glaze - Vintaj Metal Relief Block all for non-porous materials, and lots of colors, combine to create unique embellishments! Joggles, the heart of art, has a wonderful display of samples and Barbara's Vintaj video tutorial shows you many of the techniques of how-to use the Vintaj products. Click HERE for more Vintaj product information.

These charming Ephemera Art Buttons were the creation of Lin from Lin's Arty Blobs. Not really sure of her technique but looks as if she used clear plastic buttons and Decoupaged Vintage Ephemera Graphics to the backs. Love them! These adorable little bits are featured in the current issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine (Jul/Aug 2012). So, grab a copy if you want the full instructions!

Stitch and Play, by Mary Corbet, is a series of articles featuring step-by-step photo tutorials that explore hand embroidery stitches and the different and fun things you can do with them! Mary lists them in her index, which you'll find under her TIPS and TECHNIQUES in the main menu on Needle 'n Thread.

TLC Craft Wars hosted by Tori Spelling is coming to TV and starts this Tuesday (June 26th 2012) on TLC at 10/9c. Nikki, of In Stitches, episode airs later in the season, but she'll be glued to her TV every Tuesday from now until then, and probably thereafter!

I'm sure, like me, that you've collected some, good, bad, and "ugly" pattern papers and cardstock in your paper stash. But Debi Wind demonstrates how to transform ugly paper using a Steampunk design at Rubber Road Adventures Creative Paper Crafting and Mixed Media Techniques.

Paper Crafts Magazine has listed their Jul/Aug 2012 issue project patterns and made them available as jpeg and/or PDF versions to download for free. Now's the time to take advantage of these card patterns and start creating!

Today My Memories has a great freebie for you!! Purse Cards! Think tea parties, bridal showers, baby showers, baby announcements: the possibilites are endless what you can do with these cute cards. They even work great as a fun dress-up for little girls.

In How to Use Modeling Paste on Any Project, Christy Butters, will open up the world of modeling paste for you. You've seen it on the shelf at the store and wondered what you would ever do with the stuff, and you've seen it on others projects. Now it's time for you to play with it and see just how fun and versatile modeling paste is! This two week online class is loaded with techniques and samples and you'll work together using modeling paste on a plethoa of projects.

In Gesso: It's More than Just a Primer, Kate Koch teaches you the basics and how to apply it correctly (cause it really does matter!), simple uses for it, the way it was intended to be used and then gets you thinking way outside the proverbial box! This two week online class also includes PDF's and videos.

As "spring-y" as these Fleece Spring Flower Pillows may look, I'm sure, if you used other seasonal fleece colors, or accent colors to your rooms decor, they would be just as lovely! Laura's admittedly addicted to fleece and gladly shows you with photo's how it's done.
