Oxide Pad Update


Just got a call from our distributor.  Our new Oxide pads and reinkers have shipped.  We are expecting them tomorrow or Friday.  We know how anxious people are to get their hands on them, so we will let you know the second they arrive.  After all, who doesn't need new goodies for the holiday weekend?

Art Impressions Video Tutorials

We received raved reviews about Kendra's Art Impression class last Friday.  The students had nothing but positive things to say about our guest artist as well as the Art Impressions products and techniques.

A lot of you couldn't make the class because of the scrapbook convention but were still curious about the techniques.  If you weren't here for the hands on approach, Art Impressions has amazing videos on how to use the stamps to create elegant watercolored cards.  Of course, we have all of the stamp sets featured in the videos.  We also have the Marvy markers used in the videos.  They are sold as individual markers.

Watering Can Tutorial:
Hint...the technique part starts at the 2:39 mark.

You can also watch the video directly here-
