Today PaperTemptress’s Community Blog received the Trendy Treehouse Trendy Blog Award!Â My design team deserve a reward so I am very happy to present it to them.Â Â The blog award pleased me very much but I was even more pleased by who gave PaperTemptress’s Commmunity Blog the Trendy Blog Award .Â Lea Ciocci the author of Creative Art Concepts for papercrafts gave us the award and she is one of my artist idols! Â Â I was very proud! Her book is full papercrafting techniques so if you are just getting addicted to papercrafts (I use that term because it is what ends up happening) or have been designing for a while this book will really teach you a lot!Â She is an extremely talented artist so take some time and visit her blog!Â Thank you Lea for the recognition!Â
Speaking of very proud moments and books…..Coloring Techniques for Card Making has been released and it is an amazing book that will teach you the three main methods for coloring all those fabulous rubber stamps and digital images that we all own! Trudy Sjolander has 5 cards in it!! three of them are made with PaperTemptress’s cardstock too so we know how fabulous looking they are. There are also several designers in this book that you will recognize too so I HIGHLY recommend both of these books!
