New: Tammy Tutterow Coloring Book

May 2nd

Hello, Memory Bound Friends!

We have Tammy Tutterow’s new coloring book at the store and it is wonderful!! Tammy teamed up with her friend, Catherine Scanlon,  to create art for a coloring book by the team at Annie’s publishing (publisher of Cardmaker Magazine)!   It is packed full of fabulous art  in multiple sizes so that you can use the completed coloring images in projects.  Isn’t that awesome?

Not only are there 82 different designs to color, but there is a wealth of information about coloring at the beginning of the book! The bonus is that there is no wrong way to color!!

Being a huge fan of Tammy’s handwriting, I just had to get a copy and started coloring right away!
I grabbed my new favorite coloring media, the KaiserCraft Gel Pens. If you have not tried this out, it is a must! They are not your normal gel pens what-so-ever. These pens lay down color like butter and all that have tried them  have fallen instantly in love! You can’t beat the price at $19.99 for 24 pens!

What I really enjoy about this coloring book are the different sizes of the same image.

There are many full 8.5×11 images to color.

There are half page images.

And several pages of four card size images.

When coloring, I used the pastel pens to color in the image and then traced with a coordinating glitter pen!

Coloring is a great way to de-stress, relax and create a fun card front! Doesn’t get much better than this!

Can’t make it to the store, give us a call at 515-965-1102 and we would love to help you out!
