Some Embossing Folder Fun

Hello, everyone! March has arrived, and after last week, the pace has slowed in our household considerably. We are done with basketball season, and the state spelling bee was held last weekend. Rileigh did not advance to the national bee, but that's ok! She is still quite proud of how far she was able to make it. we are all quite proud of her! Here she is, posing next to all of the trophies while we waited for them to announce the finalists:

Like she said when she found out she was not a finalist: "There's still next year!" That's my positive girl!!

Anyway...back to what you *really* want to see. Did you know Crafter's Companion carries the eBosser? It's a crazy cool embossing machine that I just love and will one day own! Right now, I have my silly little Big Shot, and it's quite the pain in the patootie. It works, though, and I can still select from Crafter's Companion's embossing folder options (except the bigger ones that just will not fit!) I just received a few new folders, and this one is by far my favorite (probably will remain my favorite for some time, too.) It's perfect for a variety of projects, whether with Crafter's Companion stamps or all by themselves:

Isn't it just the greatest? I used the 4.25 x 5.75 Darice Woodgrain Background embossing folder and this lovely salmon color Tim Holtz Distress cardstock, perfect for embossing. I loved the woodgrain look so very much, I decided it didn't need a bunch of fancy embellishments or stamps, just a small sentiment from my random stash box,a strip of chevron ribbon, black pearls, and this lovely Maya Road flower I've had for quite some time...I love how it has both the blues of the ribbon and the pinks of the background paper!

There she is, I have a recipient in mind for this lovely card...but I'm not telling who ;)

Visit the Crafter's Companion store today and check out their wide range of embossing folders. I swear there is something new added each and every week sometimes! So hard to choose!

Do you like Crafter's Companion USA on Facebook yet? Head over and become a fan to stay on top of new releases, like the newest Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy releases (which I will be showcasing later this evening, just released today so be sure to check them out along with the 3/$30 bundle special.) They are giving one lucky fan, every single day this week, a $10 gift certificate to the Crafter's Companion store! From the UK? Head over to the Crafter's Companion UK Facebook page and like them...they're doing the same thing!

I hope you are having a great day thus far. Watch for my Sheena creation later on, along with various projects that I have been meaning to post for quite some time. I am looking forward to the clear calendar the next couple of weeks...for after that comes softball/tball season, and then it's back to running all over the place again!
