Upcoming Classes

Summer is a great time to treat yourself to a class.  Sit inside, enjoy the air conditioning, relax, and let someone prep and clean up after you.  We have several classes this week that you might want to take.
This Sunday, Laura will be teaching her 10 in 10 quick and easy beach card class.  You will leave with 10 completed cards and envelopes to use for birthdays, thinking of you cards or general occasions.
Galaxy cards are so trendy right now, and Kathy has an upcoming galaxy background class that will allow you to make six backgrounds to pair with various die cuts.

We have also restocked all the Colorburst powders, including the newest release of colors.  Colorburst powders make absolutely stunning backgrounds and can be combined with stamps, dies or stencils.

Waste not, make art!

It is hard to see the intricate detail in this card, so why not stop in and take a look!

This is the next installment of our FREE Learn at Lunch demos - Tuesday, July 25 between 12 & 2 pm.  Let Angela show you how to make use of your layering rectangle dies to make frames that can be filled with a "modified iris folding" technique.  This is a great way to make use of all those scraps of paper you've been saving, and also use your layering dies in a new way!  Plus, it makes for a really interesting birthday or baby or shower or anytime card (simply change out the colors of paper).

See you there!

New Papers

Hi guys, we have four new collections of paper that we think you are going to love.  Two are for the Fall/Halloween, one is for Christmas, and one has a camping theme.  I am not going to post pictures of every piece of paper since that would be close to 50 pictures.  However, I will post a few so that you can get a feel for each collection.  There are also 6" x 6" packs available for each line in addition to the 12" x 12" papers.  The camping collection also has amazing coordinating washi tapes.
