New Arrivals

 Woo Hoo!  Distress Stains are finally here! Stains are a more fluid version of your favorite Distress ink pads, so you don't have to water them down as much.  They are great for covering a larger area quickly.   Hurry- these are going fast!

 We also got in a whole lot of new papers  These are by Bella Blvd..

These are by Bo Bunny...

More boy's day stamps by Dandelion Designs and Sister Stamps and new sentiments by Island Scrapbooking.

Here's some miscellaneous items that also arrived.  If you squint, you can see Distress Crackle paste (yay!) and titanium fiskars blade refills. They are supposed to last longer... we'll have to put that to the test!

And finally, if you need some graduation items, we have a few in stock..  Graduation is next month already!

Stop in soon for best selection!
