This is going to be a Part 1 blog post to show you some of the new items that arrived at the store lately. There is just too much to show in one post. Also, there have been enough boxes coming in to the store this week that items put in the "new" section by the door a few days ago have already had to be moved to other locations in the store to make room for the product that came in today. So, the next time you are at the store, be sure to look around. There are new things everywhere!
Have you seen the new samples from Rosie's? They are so much fun and are easy to recreate. If you are a fan of Rosie's, don't forget that Donna will be teaching a day and evening Rosie's class on May 14.
I think every staff member bought one of the Faber Castell collapsible water cups for their craft kits. They are easy to store or pack, and they have dips on the rim to hold your brush:
Are you a fan of Distress Inks? We have the three new packs of mini Distress Pads (we also restocked the older mini Distress sets as well):
What project did Marilynn rave the most about from the trade show she attended? Slide cards from the Paper Cut and Impression Obsession. We have packs of these fun, interactive cards in a variety of colors. All you have to do is decorate them with stamps or die cuts. Be sure to check out the samples the next time you are at the store:
If you weren't lucky enough to take classes from our guest artist last weekend, we still have some of the decorative, interactive dies from Sizzix and great embossing folders from Elizabeth Crafts:
If you want a "heads up" about other new products I will be blogging about tomorrow, we have new Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things "die-namic" dies, tons of Impression Obsession, and lots of Faber Castell.
Also, don't forget we are closed this Sunday for Easter.

I colored each of these cards with the Irojiten Pencils from Tombo. Can you see that swatch of black card stock? I colored it with the Neon pencils, and they showed up beautifully. Plus, the Neon colors actually glow in the dark under a black light - Elvis anyone?!?!
I love these pencils because they are part-oil, part-wax, so they are firmer to work with and don't leave a waxy build-up. And, you can blend them with a Dove blender. Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2 and try them for yourself. I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised!

We feel very lucky to have Karen Burniston coming to the store to teach next weekend. She is a licensed artist with Elizabeth Crafts and will be teaching Interactive card classes using her own incredible line of dies. Students will get to make a garden bench, pivot, pop-up, and accordion card. The morning class is now full, but Karen offered to teach the class again in the afternoon, and there is room in that class.
Date: Saturday, April 12
Time: 2:00 - 5:00 PM

As you can see from the picture above, we are well stocked with Faber-Castell products. If you missed the demo, be sure to talk to a staff member about the products or pick up one of the free Faber-Castell instruction sheets we have by the register:
Also, if you are a fan of Art Impressions, you will love the new arrivals. We have the humorous ladies as well as cute critters (from the front and back):
Finally, as much as it pains me to say it, Dee will probably be named everyone's favorite employee. She said that Saturday, April 5th is National Caramel Day and thought the store needed to hand out caramels. Here is what she left for me to put out for Saturday customers:
