Stay Tuned

This post is sans photo. I have some exciting news that I've been wanting to share with you, my wonderful followers. Do you love those fancy doilies and die cuts that you see on many beautiful cards? Do you want to enlarge your cache of tools that make your card making and scrapping easier? Do you constantly wish you would win a lottery so that you can buy the dies and tools on your ever growing wish list?

A month or so ago, I was contacted by a wonderful lady by the name of Darlene Placito asking if I would be interested in creating samples for her online blog store using some of the industry's more beautiful dies. Of course I jumped at the chance. I'd been purchasing Marianne, Cheery Lynn and Memory Box dies from Darlene for some time. I found her prices to be, in many cases, better than those of other vendors, and her service and personal attention to orders superb. I felt honored and blessed that Darlene contacted me.

I would like to ask that you take a look at Darlene's site (click on the photo to the right and it will take you directly there). Dutch Paper Crafts is set up in blog format. You can scroll down (and then click "older posts" for more) to see samples of the products Darlene offers. In order to place an order, you need to email her. If she is out of a product, she will immediately contact you (in many cases, she will try to get it for you). The site is a little different from the usual online "stores" in that you don't have a click to order option, but let me assure you that Darlene will answer you ASAP -- her prices and service are well worth the little extra effort.

I hope, soon, to be able to share some of the samples I've sent to Darlene. In the mean time, I will continue to share my weekly DT card for Card Crafter's Circle (newest to be posted later this evening) as well as personal cards (which haven't been as many lately) as I make them.

Thank you for continuing to support me by following my humble little blog. Blessings to all of you.
