My Blog Picks and Posts from Here and There Around the Web #3

 

Hi All,

Here’s my latest set of Blog Picks (#3)  from here and there around the web.  A wee bit sparse this week but I’m still recovering and playing catchup from more than a week of Internet being down.  Also appears that the summer doldrums have struck many bloggers so not as much inspiration out there in general this last week.  Hopefully it will pick up once everyone recovers from Convention and gets back in the groove.  Till then…..

Generally you’ll see all SU here on my blog but here and there I find inspiration that is eminently CASEable with SU Product so will share that as well with suggestions for alternate stamps and paper.  Feel free to copy and paste this list and pass it around to fellow stampers or customers or whoever.   Keep in mind there is a lot of inspiration out there and these are just a few of what I’ve found that struck my fancy (so it’s very subjective).   If you are an SU demo or customer and would like to see a more extensive list I have newsletters for both groups (free for right now) with more details, FYI, video and tutorial links.  Email me if you are interested.   Now with that plug out of the way here’s this weeks list of links.
