Here is a video of Tim introducing his new line of glitter. He shows you how you can add ink on top of the glitter as well as how to adhere the glitter for maximum sparkle effect:
If you would like to see the video directly on YouTube, you can see it here.
We ordered all of the new glitter colors, so there will be plenty of options to add sparkle to upcoming holiday cards. Jennifer McGuire Tweeted that her favorite of the new colors are Peacock Feathers, Pumice Stone, and Antique Linen. Personally, I can't wait to see what she does with them!
Want to see pictures of all the new colors and read more about them? You can find all of that information here.

So excited about the new holiday cards special edition from Paper Crafts Magazine. It is loaded with card and gift ideas to get you started for the holidays.
Are you a fan of the Wink of Stella glitter brush pens? We are! Laura especially can't seem to stop adding to her collection. We now carry their 3-pack sets with themes such as "Landscape," "Christmas," and "Pretty Garden." Some of the other sets are on backorder, but we expect them soon. Not only do the packs have great color combinations, but they will save you 50 cents per pen.
We have new bakers' twine as well. Not only do we carry solid colors, but we also have sparkle/metallic twines. Can you see the sparkle in the picture? They are perfect for holiday cards or gift wrapping, and like our other twines, they are only 20 cents/yard.
Finally, are you a stencil person? We restocked our selection of Crafters Workshop stencils, including many designs that are new to the store. Come in and have a look!

The product we are highlighting today is by Dyan Reaveley. Her Dylusion Sprays have been such a hit, and she now has an inkpad that works with the sprays. The best part? You can spray color onto the pad, use the color to stamp, then rinse off the pad to use with different colors of sprays! Here is an intro to the product from Dyan herself:

If you would like us to hold a pad for you, just let us know!

Join us this Thursday between 10 - 8 for this FREE make-and-take card. It features a stair-step card from Paper Cut and stamps by Impression Obsession. I LOVE the dots cover-a-card stamp on the yellow. Doesn't that look exactly like water drops? So clever and picks up the dot motif in the inner tube!
I also love the sentiment - who couldn't use a little encouragement - in such a cute package! Drop by and make one for someone special!
