Here we go again: This past Thursday April 24th, I held a tool demonstrator training class for the local scrapbook store managers and buyers in the greater Salt Lake area. Deea Hobbs, the local Fiskars sales rep, set up the training at Heartland Paper Co. in Taylorsville, Utah. After I showed everyone how the Fiskars tools work, we had some prize give-aways, a wonderful lunch (YUMMY sandwiches), make & takes, and time to play with the tools. It was so great to meet all of these wonderful ladies. I loved to hear how excited they were to learn how to use the tools that they sell every day in their stores and warehouses. Thank you ladies for spending your afternoon with us. I hope you had as much fun as I did! Thank you Deea for the wonderful prizes, lunch, make & take, and just being the sweet you that you are!
Raindots! I LOVE raindots! They are so fun and so easy to use! This year there are new raindots shaped like eyelets. These are perfect for the eyelet challenged like myself. I just punched a 1/8" hole and stuck a raindot over the top. Voila! I was done! That was much too easy and much too cute! Thanks May from Fiskateers for sharing some so I could play! And since my card is all about spring, I just have to say "HAPPY SPRING" everyone! Its finally going to hit the mid-70's here today. I am soooo ready for spring.

I have just recently discovered Lea's blog while reading http://www.fiskateers.com/. Lea creates so many amazing projects. I'm definately inspired!
One of the most amazing photographers I have ever met is Jane Hasty. You can see Jane's blog here. I love all of her baby photos. I could spend an hour just looking at cute babies!
Another Utah girl is my Fiska-friend and fellow Fiskars certified tool demonstrator Erin. Check out Erin's blog here and see her wonderful cards and projects. Wonderful inspiration.
I have never been the best doodler. Here is Stephanie's blog with her wonderful doodles and inspiration. She is also the creator of Home and Heart magazine.
Here is Spidergirl Angela's blog. I love her scrapbook pages, ScrapSecrets, and candy reviews.

The layered card was super simple. I cut 4 squares: (2) 4", 3", and 2". After using the border and corner punches, I inked the middles lightly so that the punchouts would show. I then glued the layers together and added a flower and brad.
Fiskarscrafts.com has some great examples of using the new Border and Corner punches. Check them out for some more great ideas.
