You can also read more about the #PaperTrail and a Q&A with Eileen Hull HERE.
We will be teaching a workshop March 28, 2014 on how to create this “springy” Artist Trading block using Sizzix dies from Eileen Hull and Where Women Cook at The Collins Group Show. If you will be attending the show you can find out more and sign up HERE.
Our first stop before heading up to The Collin’s show is near and dear to my heart. Eileen will be picking me up here in Connecticut and we will be heading up to the Great American Stamp store for a Demo and Make and take of Eileen’s latest Sizzix Collection Cherished! We will also have a special guest Artist stopping by. The amazing Marjie Kemper!

I may be dating myself but they stopped making licensed character stamps 20 years ago…so there’s that This was my first forray into paper crafting…I spent every cent of my 12th birthday money on this now vintage lot…a worthwhile investment indeed! (who doesn’t want a Pebbles and Bam Bam stamp set?)
