New Arrivals Part 2

We are blown away by the new house pivot die from Elizabeth Crafts. Have you seen it yet? It makes an awesome 3D card which could be used for "we've moved" cards, housewarming cards, a gingerbread house for Christmas, or a haunted house for Halloween. It is easy to make and will make your recipients say, "Wow!"

Next, have you been wanting to try Encaustic wax (basically beeswax) in your mixed media projects? We have tons of wax as well as their versatile heating tool. You can change out the tips to change it from an iron to a stylus. Marilynn has put up some samples in the store, and you can really see the dimension you can achieve with the wax. She will be using the wax in upcoming classes, so be sure to keep an eye out for that if you are interested in hands-on opportunities. If you have never heard of encaustic wax and would like to see more, here is a video from CHA:


One new "favorite" product we have at the store are the Die Snips from Elizabeth Crafts. The tip is incredibly small and makes cutting your die cut sets apart a snap.

We received so many cute new dies from My Favorite Things. There are campers, keys/locks, flowers, a paper bag die, and tons of decorative elements.

We didn't have room in the "New" section to put all of the stamps/dies we received from Lawn Fawn, so we put them on a rack with other clear stamps:

As you can see, we restocked lots of Faber Castell products. Did you know you can take Gelatos, add some water, and make a spray out of them? We have a tool kit that will help you make your sprays. You can also use a tiny bit of Gelatos and mix it with their whipped spackle to make any color of dimensional paste you want. The paste you make is perfect for combining with a stencil and adding dimension to your projects.
