Bella Rose Stampin' Up! Designer Papers.. I'm In Love!

OOOOOOOOOOH my goodness.... I am sooooooooo in love with these new designer papers from Stampin' Up!  This package will be available in the new catalog on August 11th.  Demonstrators could order it early.  It's right up my alley - with my love of roses and gardening!!  It's called Bella Rose!  I love it!

I spent my free time today making this booklet... it's the same type of booklet that I shared last week from Sharon (here).  This book uses CD folders - I used 2 in my project, Sharon used 3.  I've tried to take pix from many angles to help you see how it's put together.  I'll definitely be teaching this as a class with one of our new Simply Scrappin' Kits in August or Sept., and will offer it as a kit on my blog too!  It's an amazing book.. it is so fun to hold in your hands... it doesn't come across as well in the photos,.. but trust me.. this is a "must make" project!!  :)

And I know you'll ask.. I got the cd folders from Uline HERE.  They are $29 for a box of 125. 

Whew.. that's all for now... can't wait to get back to my new stuff, but need to take my son to the golf course first! (Monday night church golf league) :)
