Wplus9 Design Studio - June/July Release 2013 - GROUP post!

It thrills me to be a part of Wplus9 Design Studio, on too many levels to possibly express.
It's been YEARS, and Dawn Woleslagle feels like family to me.  I've ridden the waves of
her many, MANY stamp and product releases, and it continues to be a surprising RUSH
of joy and satisfaction.  {I LOVE her vision, her OUTPUT and her constant drive!} So,
I must sound QUITE repetitive, but HONESTLY, is there a higher compliment to Wplus9,
than to declare that everything just gets BETTER with time?!?  I'm SO happy to be involved
with ANOTHER group release  - there is just SOMETHING about seeing the team come
forth with their best of Dawn's products...   AND this is the DAY! 

So, here I go!  SCRAPBOOK PAGE goodness with Wplus9 Design Studio!


I LOVE showcasing Dawn's products through different media, especially scrapbooking!

It means and extra amount to me, personally, because stamping was my first "thing!"
QUICKLY, followed by scrapbooking.  When I was new to scrapbooking, I avidly
signed up for classes and bought PRODUCT like there was no tomorrow!  But, as
I hoarded collected supplies - I kept THINKING, why can't I stamp ON my pages?
Local stores carried BOTH stamps and scrapbooking products, but rarely, did the
two "mix."  Finally, I found a class on "stamping in on your scrapbook pages", but
I was devastated, when the first sentence from the instructor's mouth was, "the secret
to stamping on your scrapbook pages is...  there is no secret."

I was CRUSHED.  We "copied" a page she had done, with some stamping here and
there, but it was NOT what I craved.  In the years that followed, I combined the two
AS MUCH AS I POSSIBLY could, and even taught classes AT the same store! 

 I find that Dawn's stamps {AND dies!} translate, flawlessly from card making to scrapbooking! 
They are FUN and easy to use, the various sizes and dimension make them SO useful to customize
backbrounds, create EMBELLISHMENTS and TELL THE STORY!  In this case - the story is
about "Auntie Cow", our beloved friend, and I am DELIGHTED with the results! 

The "secret" to enhancing scrapbook pages with stamping is....  GREAT STAMPS!
And GREAT materials!  Wplus9 Design Studio is ALL that, my friends!  ALL THAT!

I hope you think so, too!  But, for MORE inspiration, you will DEFINITELY want to
check out DAWN'S BLOG, and the rest of the Wplus9 Deisgn Studio Team!  THEY
are SOOOOOOO talented and inspiring - it's like the PERFECT storm of creativity!

Thank you, SO MUCH, for sharing the excitement of Wplus9 Design Studio with YOU!
I hope you'll treat yourself to some SHOPPING - I KNOW you deserve it!

Yee Haw!

Ever so cute, Elise! I just love how you've used the cupcake wrapper die, and those milk bottles are perfect! I have some pics of our trip to the dairy that I still need to scrap. You've inspired me! TFS!
