New Arrivals!

We are so excited.  The last couple of days have been about getting the new arrivals in the computer and on the shelves!  Sizzix has arrived.  All you Tim Holtz fans... the gears are here!  As well as the Hardware Findings!!!  I can not wait to use these dies with the grunge board.
Here is the picture of the new Sizzix Dies, stamps, and embossing folders:

Also, we have all been awaiting the new Lawn Fawn order.  They are just so cute.  The ever popular Good Fortune will fly off the shelf.  You should be able to pick that one of the crowd of new stamps pictured below.  Do you see that...?  You  do not have to cut them out by hand!  They now have their own dies for some of their stamps.  Come in and check them out.


Look what's coming next! We have the sneak peek of Sister Stamps 12th Release! I know what Stamp I will be using for Boys Day. Pre-pay for your stamps now through March 9, 2013 and you will receive 10% off your stamps. These stamps are due to be released on April 1, 2013.

We also received a small Dandelion Stamps order as well.  A lot of you were interested in there new stamps, so we brought them in as well as a couple of our favorites.


We should be receiving a Lifestyle Crafts order and a Hawaiian Paper order any day!  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope everyone stays dry and warm this weekend. Have fun crafting!

Happy Valentine's Day

Is everyone enjoying their Valentine's Day?  We hope you are!  
We did receive an order from Hero Arts that is just perfect for today or any "LOVE" card or scrapbook page you want to create. I love hearts because they can be used for any occasion. There is also great new Hero Arts Fancy Dies that are a must see.  Check them out in the picture below.

I can't wait to play with that butterfly.  I love the detail and the  Art of the Card Stamps from Hero Arts are always my go to stamps.  They are really easy to use with the Distress Inks and Stains!  Those tags you see have matching dies. They are the perfect size to hang off of small gifts and treat bags.

So much to come and look at.  The ideas are always endless.

Also, the Class scheduled for Saturday with Tracy is full and she is offering to have the class again on Saturday, February 23rd 10:30 - 12:30.  The class will show you the techniques used to make these cards (shown below).  We will be using Spellbinders, Distress Inks, and embossing powders.  It's a lot of fun.  Call the shop to reserve your seat!

We are still awaiting a couple of orders. Life Style Crafts is due in any day.  Watch for their wonderful new dies and embossing folders. Also,coming soon is new Lawn Fawn and Sizzix!

Don't forget to like us on Facebook!  You never know when we will post a daily deal.
