April Newsletter

Spring is in the air (although at night it still feels like winter!) and new products are arriving in the store regularly. For all you stampers out there who have been dying to try Copic markers, they're here! These pens are all the rage when it comes to coloring in your stamped image. Use the blending pen with them and the possibilities are endless!

Also back in stock are those popular Spellbinders Labels 1 dies. These make layering backgrounds for cards, but you'd be surprised at what else can be done with them. The great thing is that they come in a set in varying sizes that nest (thus the name Nestabilities) so it makes it easy to layer and gives great results. The best feature is that you can see through the die, which allows you to position your die exactly where you want it to go. Makes it very easy to cut out stamped images and sentiments. Hurry, these are going fast! (Don't forget to bring your coupon if you are a member.)

Cuttlebug Embossing Folders are also back in stock. These are perfect for adding texture to your project. Stop by the store to see some great samples.

Keep checking back for more products as they come in.
