People really seem to be enjoying stamps and coordinating dies by Lawn Fawn. They are just so much fun to color! We received a new shipment as well as new samples, so be sure to look for them the next time you are at the store.
Next, I want to share a video by Wendy Vecchi highlighting a great technique using reinkers for her Archival Ink pads. She demos the technique for her art journal, but it would look fantastic on cards:
If you want to view the video directly on YouTube, you can see it here
If you want another idea for something to do with her reinkers, how about dying embossing paste?
The video can also be viewed directly here.

We are very, very lucky to have Sandy Boyd, a representative for Dreamweaver, here this weekend for a free demo. Sandy will be teaching us techniques for working with Dreamweaver Stencils. Sandy's two favorite techniques are the Molten Magic (pictured above) and the Double-glitter technique. Join her for a fun morning of stencil madness! She'll have additional sample boards, so bring your camera and come be inspired.
Time: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

If you're like me and ready for spring, then you won't want to miss this Thursday's FREE make-and-take featuring the stunning Poppy stamp from Hero Arts. We used Brilliance ink to add just a bit of shimmer (it almost looks dewy when you see it in person).
This card soothes me - the colors are yummy. And, it can be used for virtually any occasion! So, stop in Thursday between 10 - 8 and make one for yourself - FREE and no registration is required!

A Graphic 45 release is always a welcome addition to the store, and we are thrilled to have three new collections of paper along with coordinating stamps and embellishments. The "Botanical Tea" collection is absolutely going to blow you away. It has soft pink and blue tones, and the illustrations are absolutely stunning. The "Good ol Sports" collection has vintage sports themes on one side and patterns on the flip side that are perfect for masculine cards (stripes, stars, etc). Finally, the "By the Sea" collection features deep blues and reds and has fun nautical images. For those of you who are ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to warm summer days, this line of paper is just for you! If the paper isn't enough for you, check out the chipboard embellishments, metal brads, key holes, keys, washi tape, tags and stamps. Yipppeee!
Speaking of washi tape, we received a large shipment of tape from We R Memory Keepers. There are so many color options including a rainbow pack with fun narrow-sized tape.
Bunnies! Rubbermoon has really cute bunnies for Spring that are absolutely perfect for coloring.

Greetings all! I just got back from PA last night, so I don't have my samples made for tomorrow's Learn at Lunch demo featuring the fabulous Distress Paint Daubers from Ranger. Rest assured, I'll have something by tomorrow (it's not technically the very last minute yet), but I wanted you to know that there is a FREE demo tomorrow from 12-2, and you should join me :-)
Also, the fabulous folks from Sweet 'n Sassy will be setting up their tradeshow booth this Saturday, and, contrary to what I said in my previous email, they WILL be demoing their stamps and dies all day (10-4 with a break for lunch). So, that's two times this week I hope to see your lovely faces. Now, back to making samples........
