A new addition to your tool box...

Have you seen the new white Photo Tray that was released with the Venice collection? Well, we have seen them up close and they are fabulous! The new white trays come in both the 4 x 6 version as seen here and in the ATC size. Now since we have been working with the trays getting ready for CHA we have found a new tool to add to our tool box...the wooden skewer.


skewer |ˈskyoōər| noun a long piece of wood or metal used for holding pieces of food, typically meat, together during cooking.

We have found this to be a most useful tool when working with the trays. Here's how: Say you put a picture in one of the rectangles, but then you change your mind (like that never happens). Just reach for your handy wooden skewer, we bought ours at the dollar store...mind you there's enough in the package for a lifetime of trays as well as shish kebab-ing for a mob on the weekend. The skewer is just right to get into the corner and pop the picture right back out without scratching or cutting anything. Can you tell what tool we WERE using before we found the skewer?

We also thought you might like better look at one of the new white Photo Trays using the new Venice line.
In the first square you can see our new 97% sticker, N is for Nest. Did you notice the little book that says, "a short guide to us?" tucked behind the black book belt? (she just cut the book belt with scissors to make it fit). The stickers in the center bottom are adhered at different levels. Some are right on the backing and other are mounted on one or two pieces of book book to create the different heights. A few even have copper tape on the edges. The numbers in the last square relate to the house number where the family lives (must be a love nest).
We hope you like the new white trays and the new Venice line as much as we do.

Beautiful project! Loving the new line. Those trays are really cool!

It was so fun to see you yesterday and meet all of you! Wasn't Blissfest wonderful? I had such a great day! The "little" surprise tin was so fun! I love it! So did my mom. We had a blast going through everything and oohing and ahhing. Thank you so much for your generosity. It totally made our day! :)
