Good afternoon everyone. The big holiday weekend is nearly upon us….do you have any plans? Mike and I will host family 2 days and celebrate Mike’s birthday which is actually today. I also am finishing up September’s Paperie In Bloom which I am going to post on either Monday or Tuesday. Today’s featured card is my interpretation of Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2013 monthly series. Each month he features a different tag chocked full of techniques and ideas and this month’s was no exception. I knew at first glance of Tim’s tag idea would make for a fun birthday card for my fiance Mike who is a big car guy. Use the hyperlink above to learn how to create your own tag or card. For the envelope, I used Tim Holtz’s Kraft Core paper and his Travel Signs embossing folder for a cool decorative element for the outside of the envelope.
One last update before you go…I have not been able to successfully fix the feed source between my site and Feedblitz. This is why you have not received emails with new blog posts. Apparently, Feedblitz tells me the disconnect is contained within my WordPress theme. They recommended that I contact my web developer to have them comb through the HTML code to find the error. Really? I replied….and told them that I used a program called Artisteer to design my site back in April 2012 and had not 1 issue prior to Feedblitz’s recent crash in early August. They had no further ideas for me. Arrrgh! I will admit this has been incredibly frustrating for me, but have decided instead to try and make lemonade. As a result, I am in the process of redesigning an entire new website for Scrap N Grow that will launch later this fall. In the meantime, I would recommend that you bookmark this page and check back periodically for updates. If you choose, feel free to follow Scrap N Grow on Facebook and/or on Pinterest too. I update them manually each time I post. There are links on my left hand sidebar. Thank you everyone for your ongoing support and have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend. See you next week!
