The new Lawn Fawn release is at the store and is super-cute! Here are some ideas with the new products:
We also wanted to remind you that guest artist and mixed media guru Dyan Reaveley will be at the store October 17 and 18. A couple of her classes are already full, so don't wait if you were thinking about signing up for any of them. We don't want anyone to be disappointed that they couldn't get into her classes while she is visiting the States.
Finally, we have been reorganizing the store to make things a bit more cohesive and easier to find. For example, we now have all the markers, pencils, and pens in one location. We also now have an entire mixed media wall of supplies! Be sure to come in and check it out. We really think you will like how things are organized. I will also post some pictures so you can see what is new and different.

The latest W Plus 9 release was absolutely amazing. There are new sayings as well as fun animals together. Be sure to stop by t sore and give them a look.
When I say their new leaves set, I thought "Fall," but I love the colors they used in their samples to make them practical year-round

It has been a while since a brown color was added to the line, and we think you are really going to like how this dark brown works with other Distress Colors.
Here is a Tim Holtz video that shows you what the color looks like and how wonderfully it blends with previous colors:

This Wednesday's FREE make-and-take project is another amazing interactive card featuring Paper Cut notecards and Impression Obsession stamps.
And, once again, we have a kit available to make recreating these cards easy! The kit contains 4 cling-mounted stamps (including a cover-a-card background stamp) and all the pre-cut supplies to make 5 cards - plus printed instructions. Each kit sells for $32.25.
So, stop in and make one for yourself anytime between 10 and 8, and, if you like, purchase a kit to take home and make more!

We'll have some fun creating the "beneath" as well. This background was made with iZincs (when you see it in person, it really shimmers). Angela will also bring her Color Bursts, if you'd like to play with those as well.
And, adding extra texture, the card base is the fabulous Dot Paper from Bazzill.
So, what are you waiting for? Come and party with us!

The next question I hear is "What's the best way to adhere dies this intricate to the card?" And the answer to that is Stick It adhesive. It basically creates a repositionable sticker out of your diecuts - and once you have them in place, the adhesive becomes permanent.
Stop in this Tuesday between 12 & 2 and give it a try. This card is so elegant, but much easier than it looks! See you there!

Are you a fan of Taylored Expressions? Here are just two products from the huge new release we received. There are stamps, dies, sequins, and papers.
The "Grumplings in Costume" are my favorite. Here are some ideas of how to use them:
How about daisies? They work well with every occasion... Birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, get well, etc
Love this mailbox for Halloween:
How about the feathers and Southwest background?
