In addition to the coordinating papers, we also got in the cute matching stickers and die cuts!!!  Get these and you will be all set to document your summer!

Also got in all the new Doodlebug Designs papers!!!  Man, if you love Doodlebug you will be in heaven!

And just a short note to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Spring Cleaning sale event last Saturday.  If you haven't picked up your leftover items yet, please do so soon so that we can start preparing for upcoming classes.  Thank you!

TGF New Release Just Arrived!

Good Morning,
Are you having a good weekend so far?  If not, then maybe this will cheer you up... Look what just arrived yesterday in the store? 

These are the new releases from Greeting Farm!  Saw these at CHA and knew you would like them too.  If you think those bunnies look familiar, you may remember that they were released as a cling set a few years ago, but was discontinued.  So if you've been wanting them, now you can get them in clear!  They are a little different from the original set and include some cute sentiments to go along with them, so if you already have the cling set, you might want to pick these up too.  Hurry, these won't last long as we only brought in a few of each set!

Other Noteworthy News
We are offering more classes and have decided to schedule 2 classes on Saturdays. The first class will be from 10-12 noon. The second class on Saturdays will from 12:30 - 2:00. We want to remind everyone that Saturday classes now will be starting at 10am and not 10:30. We will test this out and see how it goes. The first class on Saturday will have to be aware that a class will be following soon after so time will have to be watched a little more closley. Hopefully this will work and more classes will be able to be held. Your patience and feed back is appreciated.
Finally, for the month of March we will be staying open an hour later on Tuesdays. So for this month Tuedays we will be open from 10am - 6pm. Hopefully this helps those who just can not make in by the 5pm hour. Any feedback is appreciated.

Sending Love Your Way

 Hello Everyone!  Just wanted to share a card I made at the Lawn Fawn booth at CHA.  I didn't get a chance to do very many make 'n takes while there, but I did manage to sit down and do this one.  This card was made using two of the new Lawn Fawn sets recently released.  I love how we didn't have to color in the mail box since it was stamped on patterend paper and cut out.  I also love that we put a little love into the letter! 

Here's a close up of the mailbox and paper airplane...

I can't wait till all of the stuff I ordered arrives at the store!  It was pretty neat to see the stuff that will be coming out soon and how to use the products.  Well, hope you enjoyed this sneak peek!  Check back soon for our March Newsletter!
