Louise’s Wedding Album

P1040541Okay, not LOUISE’s personal wedding, but the wedding of her godson! Now that we’ve got that straight, take a gander at what a little modeling paste on white paper (and our lovely stencils) can do! Here’s another;

P1040545Wonderful, right? I love the subtlety of white on white with a little color sprayed onto the peaks and valleys.

Louise Rocks Julie’s blog











I’m a little jealous, but I’ll get over it. Louise Nelson is the guest blogger over at Julie Fei-Fan Balzer‘s blog.  I just can’t get enough of that girl. Louise, that is. All of her layouts are so yummy. Just look at this one. The color, the dimension. Love the whole package.  And check out the one below. Can she just come to NY and paint my walls for me? Too many walls? Alright, so maybe when I’m in my nursing home and there are only 4 walls to paint she could come by.











So enough of my blabbing, go to Julie’s blog and read the whole thing. Enjoy! And Louise, when you’re ready, I’ll be here in my rocker, waiting. Just waiting…

Martha Richardson









Martha Richardson has been a longtime groupie of ours. So I was so happy to find her blog post showing how she creates papers that she later uses in her layouts and projects.   Here is a photos of some of her background papers just waiting to be cut by her Vagabond and Sizzix dies.

Have a very Merry Christmas from the TCW elves and I. Enjoy.

Color Room inspiration














Isn’t this just so lovely? It’s by Louise Nelson, of course. She was working off of “The Color Room’s” palette #137…











The Color room always has great challenges. So if you’re stuck, looking for a little inspiration, pop over there.  Or here (to Louise’s blog).
