Last FREE Make-and-Take of the Year

Rushing around with my last minute "stuff", I realized I never posted this week's card. Sorry about that! I'm especially sorry because it is a stunner! Marilynn is the queen of Stampscapes, and this card features their country church image. If you've been intimidated to try Stampscapes before, this is a great chance because you're just using the single image. The fun is in the coloring! Marilynn framed the image beautifully with the Spellbinders Labels 10 die and added a finishing touch - the star die by Memory Box. Stop in Thursday between 10 and 8 to make one for yourself. This will be our last make-and-take in 2011 - but we'll be back in 2012 with more great projects for you to enjoy! See you then!

Save Time and Money!

Embossing folders are great, but if you want to stamp an image over the top of your embossed paper, you have to add layers - which adds time and money to any project. That is, until now! Come see these clever little frames (7 different shapes and sizes are included in the kit) that leave a space for you to stamp your words or images. They work with all of your embossing folders and whatever die-cutting machine that you already have! Come give it a try Tuesday between 12 & 2. I guarantee you're going to love these!

What a treat!

This card is so sweet, I can almost taste it! Designed by Impression Obsession, this card features their stamps and makes a great all-occasion greeting card, or a nice Thank You card following the holidays. Stop in Thursday between 10 - 8 and make one for yourself. But don't blame me if you need to make a trip to Starbucks afterwards for some Peppermint Mocha!

Shimmer and Shine

I'm having so much fun with the Shimmer Sheetz! These are high quality, fabric safe mylar sheets and have dozens of uses. You can punch them or cut them with any dies that are not wafer thin (wafer thin dies won't cut them, but will emboss them - kind of a cool effect). And they emboss beautifully with any folder! The sheets come in a handful of colors, but you can also stain them with alcohol inks and the shimmer still shines through! Stop by the shop Tuesday between 12-2 and let Jenn show you how much fun they are! The demo is FREE!

Soothing Wishes!

This card is so beautiful and soothing - and perfect for any occasion! You'll create a resist technique with Pearlescent Brilliance ink pads - easy with a hint of shimmer. This set of stamps is by TPC. We love them - they are cling-mount rubber stamps with clear set prices! Very reasonable and durable as well! Stop in Thursday and make a card for yourself. Hopefully, this card holds the only snowflakes we'll see for a while!

HoneyPop Demo

Each Tuesday, we have a FREE demo from 12 to 2 PM that we like to call Technique Tag Tuesday. As you might imagine, you'll make a tag using the latest new products or techniques. It's a lot of fun, and you learn a lot too, for such a tiny canvas.

But this Tuesday's demo just couldn't be contained on one tag. Join Jenn to learn more about the latest stamping craze - HoneyPop cards! These cards are easy to make and have a lot of bang for the buck. Open them up to reveal a wonderful 3-D surprise!

There are lots of colors of papers to choose from and lots of stamp designs to fit every occasion! But let me warn you, they are addictive! And the person who receives these cards will be completely amazed that you made it yourself! Trust me!

Don't forget, we have gift certificates available, and we make it easy on the gifter. To purchase gift certificates, simply call the shop, stop by, or even email us and pay via PayPal. And, if you need a little teacher gift, stocking stuffer or "something extra", check out our little goodie bags.

These sets are $18 each and are approximately 20% off the retail price, if items were purchased separately. Easy and just what you've always wanted!
