Jan, thanks for your sweet comment on my Happy Birthday card.  Those pearls are actually Liquid Pearls from Ranger. Gina sells some of them in the store HERE.  In ruby red, sliver and white opal.

I bought my 'Asian Bundle' from Cricut (they sent me an e-mail) but that was only available for a limited time. I was in 'Peddler's Pack', (4570 SW Watson Ave., Beaverton, OR) yesterday, and they had 3 sets and for around $36.95. Great set!!!

Jan, I just seen your Asian card at Stampin Cat and I JUST LOVE IT! I looked at the Provo site and they have two different kinds of Asian folders but I guess you can't buy direct from them unless you are a business. So from what site did you buy yours from, or are you a business now?

I just love your card! Absolutely beautiful! I want those folders. Provo has two sets of four each. Wonderful!

Hi Jan, Thanks for the welcome! We have a wonderful store in Phoenix, "Scrappy Craft", In Medford we have Michaels, Joanns, & Craft Warehouse. Sadly (partly due to the economy) we lost our best which had lots of classes available..."Scrapbook King" closed this fall!!!!
I don't belong to a local group down here, however a dear friend started a "scrapbook Day" every 3 months at her church! Kudos Marie!!!!
I work part time so I have a little more time for cards & scrapbooking!
I love StampTV!!!! This is a Great Community!!!
