The in's and the out's!

I love these new "Breeze" dies by Memory Box.  They are available in a variety of designs - stars, flowers, snowflakes and more!  They are intended to "leave behind" the "waft" of stars, but you can inlay color back in to the negative space! 

Hard to describe in words, but oh so easy to do.  Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2 to find out how. 

All of our demos are free and do not require a registration.  Come on in!

Simplify Stencil Art!


Want to create colorful dimension with your stencils, but find working with paste frustrating?  Sometimes it's hard to control the amount of paste you're working with, and it ends up sliding under the stencil.  Angela has the solution :-)  Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2 for a new technique - we'll work with Gelatos to create the color, and the Faber-Castell Glaze to achieve the dimension.  You'll be surprised how easy it is to control!

Celebrating Taylored Expressions

We are so happy that Taylor from Taylored Expressions came to see us this weekend. She is such a delightful person, and you can't beat her products! Here are just a few of the samples she brought to show us:

If you ever see any of her products you want, let us know, and we would be happy to get them for you if they aren't already in stock.

We fell in love with their cardstock because it is a wonderful 100lb weight and comes in such yummy colors. Be sure to look for it the next time you are at the store.

I must admit, I took Spanish in high school.  So, this is how I picture French words - not gonna lie! 

Join us this Wednesday for our FREE card make-and-take featuring these adorable stamps from Avery Elle.  We'll highlight the image with Wonky Stitched Circle dies from My Favorite Things - how can you not love something with "Wonky" in the title???

Get out of the house!  Coloring will make your day, and sending this precious card to someone else will spread the sweetness!

We are OPEN! And sharing the LOVE!

Are you tired of being house-bound????  I know I am - spring cannot come soon enough. 

We are here, and the sidewalk and parking lot are in good shape.  So, if you are feeling "itchy" to get out, come play with us.

Angela is here with her Tuesday Learn at Lunch between 12 & 2.  Learn just exactly how great these Inside/Outside Stitched dies from My Favorite Things are - and make a great card at the same time!

See you soon!

Tired of Snow

I don't know about you, but I am tired of snow. Therefore, I decided to share cards today that have nothing to do with winter. They feature the new release from Poppystamps that is heavy on fun, Spring related dies. Of course, we have plenty of their new release at the store!
