Free Make It Take It

We have some lovely vellum in the store that has little sparkles embedded in it. Here is a fun way to incorporate it into a card. We are using it over some of our new Doodlebug paper. We'll be stamping the words onto the card from a Paper Smooches set that I couldn't resist. The main word is "Welcome" but then it has every sort of occasion to go with the word. Loved it! And there is a die of the word "welcome" if you want to make it stand out even more! Come get out of the house and be welcomed at the store this Thursday!

Lots of New at the Store!

We promised that January would be a month filled with new arrivals, and we didn't lie! The boxes are stacking up, and Harriett and I are frantically trying to get everything entered. I am going to share some of the goodies with you...

First, how about some papers from Joy! crafts-

This 6" x 6" owl paper is some of the cutest I have ever seen

Or, how about something for Valentine's Day?

My Favorite Things had a Valentine's release, and it is AMAZING! We loved their new line so much that we bought everything. When I started this post, I realized I had 25 pictures and 4 videos I wanted to show you using the latest stamps, dies, and stencils from My Favorite Things. Obviously, I am going to show you just a sample today with more to come.

Gorgeous, right?

Finally, don't forget to put Thursday, January 15 on your calendar. Besides it being our free Make and Take card day, it is the day of the new Mama Elephant release!

As we have mentioned before, Mama Elephant releases new products on the 15th each month, and we will always have the new goodies available THAT DAY. We would love to show you an early sneak peek, but we definitely don't want Mama Elephant mad at us.

Check the blog again soon. We will be posting pictures of all the new releases as they come in to the store.

Free Tuesday Demo

Greetings! This week, the very talented Deb will be handling the free Tuesday demo at the store.  She has a fantastic project in mind that you wont want to miss!  She starts with a scallop circle and then scores it using the brand new ScarPal to make this super cute treat box.  The size of the box might be deceptive in the picture, but it holds a single Ghirardelli chocolate square.

To make the box, she also used the awesome Henna stamp set from AltNew.

Why is the new Scor Pal so much better than the older version?  It has 1/8" score lines and has much deeper groves for easier scoring.  For more information as well as the opportunity to make your own box, stop by the store on Tuesday, January 13 anytime between 12-2pm.

New Product and Free Demo

We have a brand new product from Clearsnap at the store. They are called Colorbox Blends, and they are available in 10 colors.

What are Blends you ask? Here is a short video to introduce you to the products:

You can also view the video directly on YouTube here:

Eileen Hull, the designer of the Colorbox Blends, is also a designer for Sizzix. We are extremely lucky that she is a local artist who has generously offered to give us a personal demo with her new Colorbox Blends. Trust me, there is nothing better than learning about a product by the actual designer. Nobody knows their products as well as they do!
