Sunday Fall Class

Need a break this weekend?  How about taking Laura's Fall 10 in 10 class on Sunday from 2-4:30pm?l  You will get to make 5 Fall/Thanksgiving cards as well as 5 Halloween cards.  Students will play with some of the latest stamps and dies from Impression Obsession, Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, the MISTI stamp positioner, PanPasrels, embossing powders, Zig Clean Color pens, and so much more.  

New Company

Did you miss the Open House?  One of the new companies we premiered was Honey Bee Stamps.  They have absolutely gorgeous images that add a touch of class and elegance to your cardmaking.  There are samples at the store to help inspire you, but here is a peek at their style:

Not only do they make great cards, but people have been using them to make their own coloring books.  What a great idea for a handmade gift for the holidays!

Just Because....

You are lucky if you have a friend or a sister or a mom that would appreciate this card!  The My Favorite Things stamp set have a variety of phrases to finish the word "because" - but this was my favorite.  Just because :-)

Amber Waves of Grain!

We have loved the Ombre Pads from Hero Arts for quite some time.  So, imagine our delight when they introduced two new ombre pads - this time in a metallic pigment ink.  The pigment ink is nice and thick (opaque), so it pops right off dark colored card stock!  Plus, you can easily emboss it for extra shine on your shimmer!

Join Angela between 12 & 2 on Tuesday and get your hands on these beauties.  You'll be hooked!
