Ready for the party?

Are you ready to celebrate?  We are!  We are looking forward to officially celebrating our new store on Saturday.  We have been very busy unpacking items in anticipation.   Besides the new stamp company, we'll have demos, make it take its, a guest artist, a guest author, and lots to see- including these Gelli plates just in.  And the best part is we now have the extra large plates perfect for using with fabric.  Woo hoo!

Fun & Festive!

Marilynn was so inspired by Dyan Reavely's visit last month, that she kept the party going!  I love the idea of using Christmas paper and Dyan's stylish stamps to make a unique holiday card this year!  The little gem on the hat is the perfect finishing touch!

Stop in Thursday between 10 & 8 to make one for yourself.  Who doesn't love taking a few minutes out of a hectic day to play with paper dolls?  :-)

New Graphic 45

The new Graphic 45 collection is here, and it is gorgeous! It has papers for every season, so you could make calendar projects or scrapbook any occasion. If you are a cardmaker, there are papers to help you make cards for an entire year.

Here are papers from some of the months:

We have the 6" x 6" packs, 8" x 8" collection packs, and the 12" x 12" collection packs. We also have individual 12" x 12" papers as well as coordinating ephemera and stamps.

Pan Pastels

I must admit - I'm a fan!  Join me Tuesday between 12 & 2 for a FREE demo on Pan Pastels, and I'm pretty sure you will leave a fan as well.

These are incredibly creamy, pigmented chalks.  They are so easy to blend, and apply - even to large surfaces.  We'll create backgrounds, we'll use them with stamps and stencils, and we'll even do some "reverse stenciling", where we actually remove color with an eraser. 

This is a "can't miss" demo, so be there or be square!

Grand Opening Party

The countdown is on to our "Official" Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, November 22nd.  It's an all day event with a guest artist, demos, Make It Take it's and more.  Come in for some of the fun so be sure to mark this on your calendar!

A new shipment of Stampscapes

Call all Stampscapes fans- we just got in a new shipment of stamps!  Loved the samples but didn't have the stamps?  Come  get first dibs!

We have lots of celebrating going!  We're celebrating our new store, Angela was licensed into ministry this past weekend, we have holidays coming up, and birthdays!  Our card this week is focused on celebrating birthdays, but all you would need to do is change the message and it could be a card for any occasion .  We will be using one of Dyan Reavley's bird sets.  These birds are definitely in a party modd with whimsical, festive hats.  What is it about birds with party hats that automatically puts a smile on my face?
Come join us on Thursday any time between 10 and 8:30  and make a card for whatever you are celebrating!

We also restocked some of your favorites (that we CAN show you):

Need some ideas for these sets?  Check out these videos using the and the Boutique Borders and Arctic Penguins stamps:

Painting with Embossing Powder

This wreath image is the Stamp-of-the-Month from Great Impressions.  The card sample they created with it is for Christmas.  But when I looked at it, I saw fall.  Join me tomorrow between 12 & 2 to learn little tips and tricks for using multiple colors of embossing powders without tainting every color that you own!  See you there!
