Winter Wonderland

Sometimes it's challenging to start thinking about the holidays when the weather is so unbelievably nice!  But good weather or not, the holidays are approaching!

Join Angela this Tuesday between 12 & 2 for a dose of winter magic!  You will be playing with several of the Memory Box Snow globe stamps to create a wintry scene - and you'll get tips for making the card as easy or ornate as you wish (depending on how many cards you ultimately need to make).  We love dies with flexibility!

The elegance of the Kaiser paper (with a golden snowflake sky) adds to the card - but you could easily replace the paper with blue for a "cooler" effect.

As always, the demos are FREE  and no reservation is required.  See you there!

New Ink and Halloween Supplies

Delicata makes our favorite gold and silver metallic ink pads.  Now they have four new shimmery colors and we have them all!  Laura keeps hugging the brown one and doing a happy dance, so just ignore her the next time you shop.  
Need a homemade gift idea?  How about these mini calendars from Taylored Expressions?  They are fun to decorate and make a wonderful stocking stuffer or teacher gift.  Also, be sure to keep an eye out for Gayle's calendar class for those of you who want to leave with a finished calendar project.
Can you believe it is already the end of October?  Are you running late in making Halloween cards?  Here are some ideas for projects you can make. Need some extra bling?  We have that too...
These stamps make me laugh:
Harriett also wanted me to let you know that she reordered more of the dies to make these placecard holders.  They will be back in stock soon:

New Company

Did you miss the Open House?  One of the new companies we premiered was Honey Bee Stamps.  They have absolutely gorgeous images that add a touch of class and elegance to your cardmaking.  There are samples at the store to help inspire you, but here is a peek at their style:

Not only do they make great cards, but people have been using them to make their own coloring books.  What a great idea for a handmade gift for the holidays!

Just Because....

You are lucky if you have a friend or a sister or a mom that would appreciate this card!  The My Favorite Things stamp set have a variety of phrases to finish the word "because" - but this was my favorite.  Just because :-)
