    Good morning Drew; thanks for starting this series – great idea. I’ve fallen in love with everything Oct.Afternoon and have most of the 5&Dime collection, but haven’t seen that die-cut paper. Gotta have it! And those wooden buttons are on my list too. Thanks again for showing us the “hot stuff”. Maria

    Ohhhh! I do remember those Smash Books from long ago – only we called them Slam Books, because that’s what everybody did on other people’s pages. It finally got so bad that they were outlawed at our high school. I think you found some real treasures here, Drew, and I’d love to win any one of them.


  21. July 27, 2011 / 5:29 pm

    Love the 5&Dime collection!! I just love love paper!

    I’m so glad that you’re doing a “What’s Hot” weekly series…. most of the time, my purchases are because of lists like this. Thankfully, I do have a couple of the items on your what’s hot so that means that I’m sort of in the “IT crowd”, lol….. but still haven’t yet taken the Smash book & accessory leap (almost did but restrained myself)…. I really love how you used that October Afternoon diecut paper – cute, cute, cute!

  24. July 27, 2011 / 6:01 pm

    Great Drew. Wonderful new series. Thanks,

  25. July 27, 2011 / 6:40 pm

    I love that you are doing a series. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with all the trends and products and I always like what you choose, so you are taking the work out of it for me. Thanks.
