New holiday papers from Photo Play. The first one has a retro feel:
The second one has more religious inspiration. We get lots of people who tell us they make cards for their churches at Christmas. This paper will really work well for those projects!

We are really excited about the new products from Sizzix. There is a new caddy that attaches to your Big Shot as an easy way to store extra plates and washi tape, gorgeous decorative patterned papers that fit perfectly in your machine, faux leather for die cutting or embossing, a new embossing plate with the metal plate built in for detailed die cutting, cute "sandwich" directions for die cutting and embossing (I can never remember the plate order without looking), and a great new pad that can be used for stamping on one side and piercing on the other. Whew! There is so much to see!

The second collection is Wonderfully Wicked and is perfect for making "spooktacular" Halloween cards:
For each collection, we have the 12" x 12" individual sheets as well as 6" x 6" paper packs.

We are working hard at getting the store prepared for the big Open House. Part of that preparation means making room for the new stamp company as well as getting the supplies for the demos and make and takes. Therefore, we are moving more product to the 50% off sale section. There are really great items there from companies such as My Favorite Things, Reverse Confetti, Taylored Expressions, Impression Obsession, Hero Arts, Paper Smooches, Memory Box and more! We also moved a ton of paper to the 40 cent table. For the best selection, be sure to stop by soon. It won't last long!Christmas Section: Many companies have released items for Christmas and we realized we had them all over the store in various places. In order to help you find what you are looking for, we have created a new Christmas section that includes stamps, dies, embellishments and paper. Stop by to check it out and plan your holiday cards!

Greetings everyone. We were thrilled to be mentioned in the September NorthernVirginia magazine issue! There was an article about crafting and locally owned craft stores in the area, which made us very, very happy! Here is a link to the online article if you are interested:
We have worked so hard at creating a local crafting community of our own as well as finding ways to give back to our community. Therefore, we really appreciate their support of local crafting stores/classes!

This card is a bittersweet reminder for me, but it's a fabulous reminder to all of us to enjoy the journey - even if we get stuck behind these lumbering buses :-)
Stop in Wednesday anytime between 10 & 8:30 and "enjoy". The make-and-take is always FREE - one per customer. See you there!
