Hi there, creative type!

Wow - time is a' flyin'... April is just about gone! Hope all of our April showers bring lots of May flowers...

This issue is all about scrapbooking with Lutradur®. I created some different layouts that I hope will give you some ideas for how you can make custom embellishments with Lutradur, too.

I just love, love, love how fun, versatile, and textural this stuff is....there's nothing you can't make better with it! 

I have a super special offer just for my newsletter subscribers...I will mail you a 4"x6" piece of Lutradur to try for FREE. Just email your name and addy to me at You must be a current subscriber to get this free sample, and the offer expires 5/5/10.
Beside each layout I listed what element(s) were made from Lutradur. Click here to see close-ups of all these layouts in my Flickr gallery - or click on any picture for more details - enjoy!
