New Card Kits

We have two new card kits at the store that include the stamps, dies (if applicable), pre-cut papers and envelopes needed to make 10 cards. The first kit is a thank you card that could also be changed slightly to make cards for other occasions.  It is bright and happy....definitely a great style for Spring and Summer.
The second kit is perfect for just about any recipient- women, kids, and the often difficult to design  The kit includes three stamps (dog, sentiment and pawprint) as well as a die set that has an assortment of hats, ties, moustaches, and glasses.  Make the card for Father's Day or give it to any of the dog lovers in your life.

Impression Obsession Inks

Card Deb made with the new hybrid ink from Impression Obsession. The inks come in light, medium, and dark tones that work especially well for stamp layering. People struggle with finding colors that will coordinate. This takes out all the guess work!

Memory Box Collage Dies

This card has so much depth, it looks like each layer has been popped up!  While you could pop the layers for even more dimension (it would be a challenge to mail), you don't have to with the ingenious way these new dies from Memory Box have been designed.

Stop in Tuesday, April 11 anytime between 12 & 2 and let Angela show you how easy it is to create your own.  You'll make "a scene" - and no one will call the cops!

Our Learn at Lunch demos are FREE and you don't need to register.  See you there!

Expo Tickets

Need a weekend suggestion?  How about picking up your Scrapbook Expo ticket?  We have them in stock, but we ALWAYS sell out of them and are left with customers looking to purchase them a few days before the show.  I promise we won't have any then.  Tickets sell for $8, allow you to choose what day to attend, give you early bird entrance and include a collectible badge.  We don't mail the tickets, so if you want to take advantage of the deal, you must visit the store. #ahappystamper #scrapbookexpo #tickets
