Fozz Felt

Have you ever used Fozz Felt by Kaisercraft? It adds a neat look to your project with little effort. Here Tracy used the butterfly felt border to decorate her card. These felt borders come in a variety of styles and colors. They are self adhesive, so you don't have to worry about how to apply it to your project.
Here's a close up of Lolli Anya..

Have A Scrap Happy Day!

I just love when crafters start blogging! The crafting community is so welcoming and willing to share ideas with each other, which is really awesome. One of our regular customers, Karen Inouye, has started her very own blog called Have a Scrap Happy Day. Check out her blog here. She's always dropping off samples for the store- Thanks Karen!

December Craft Night

We sure had fun at the last Craft Night of 2009/Christmas Party! We started the night out with a pot luck dinner, then on to the make 'n takes. The store also remained open for participants to shop if they wanted to take advantage of Craft Night specials.

Look what Gail made! She told us that she spent more time on the gingerbread men than on her card for the card drawing. We could all tell how hard she worked- aren't they cute?

I did the Christmas tree pie box make 'n take, but featured another take on the pie box by making it into Santa! Participants filled their trees with candy canes and used chocolates for the stump. Who knew that die was so versatile?

Here's Gwen and I with the make 'n takes.

The other make 'n takes were done by Tracy. She actually offered 2 projects! The one on the left is a gift card holder made from the new Sizzix die. The project on the right is a Christmas tag. I didn't have enough time to write in the "To and From", so my project is incomplete!

Here's Michele and Gail with Tracy doing the make 'n takes.

Here's Debi, Michele, and Margaret just hanging out.

And Donna and Michele S. having fun!

At the end of the night Michele did a drawing and gave away a Christmas goodie bag which Gwen won (sorry, no photo). Congratulations Gwen! Now you can't say you don't win anything!

We also had a Card Drawing, where anyone who wanted to, could participate by bringing in a handmade card. The cards were numbered and we all picked a number to see who got to take home which card. It was so nice to leave with a new card and a new idea!

Overall, Craft Night was a time for all of us to have fun, do a little crafting, and socialize with one another. Thank you to all who attended! Please check the blog for more info on our Januaray Craft Night, which is scheduled for January 15th (note that we had to move the date due to store closure at the beginning of January).

December 2009 Newsletter

Happy Holidays! Its that time of year again! Time for Christmas trees, stockings, presents, cookies, and all the things that make the holidays merry. Since December is such a busy time of year for everyone, we have decided not to hold any classes this month. Classes will resume again in January. So be sure to look for the January Newsletter or check our Blog for class announcements.

December Craft Night:
Our next Craft Night will be held this Friday from 5:00pm to ~6:30pm (may run longer). Since space is tight, we are asking that those who want to attend, please sign up at the store. Sign up is on a first come, first served basis. There is no charge to attend, we just need to know how many are coming!

We have not one, but two Make 'n Take projects planned for craft night. In addition to the Make 'n Takes, we are asking the participants to bring a pot luck item so that we can spend some quality time together! Please sign up for a potluck dish when you sign up to attend.

Finally, we will be hosting a Card Drawing again. Here's some information on the Card Drawing:
Please bring a "Holiday" themed card (made by you).

-All cards entered will be numbered.
-All participants will draw a number and whatever number they pick is the card they go home with!
-Participation is optional.

It was so fun going home with another card last time, so we encourage everyone who attends to participate. Participation is not necessary, but the more the merrier!

2010 Hero Arts Catalog:
The 2010 catalog will be here soon. Regular price is $10.99, but if you pre-order and pay now, it will only be $7.99!
