Jim Holtz has a fairly new blog that you have to visit! Right now he is posting the 12 Tags of Christmas. He's showing all kind of really cool techniques with alcohol inks, embossing powder, etc. Check out the blog at http://www.timholtz.typepad.com/.
Here's a great new product to check out! Go to http://www.glitzitnow.com/. They are pretty new and have some really great paper and new items to try! I hope a store around here starts carrying this product. How fun!
