How much fun can you have with all these great wooden die cuts from Provo Craft? LOTS! Bright colors and fun shapes to get your creative jucies flowing. They work beautifully on your pages and as magnets for your fridge or office walls. I am sure you can come up with some fabulous projects these will look great on.

Have you got some photos from last years Halloween bash still sitting in boxes or envelopes? It's time to get them onto a page and into your albums because the next Halloween is just around the corner. We just created a cute Halloween page kit with some of the Reminisce and Pebbles papers stickers. Don't forget to check out our other page kits, there are many themes to choose from.

We will have a new Card Kit hitting the floor today. So if you need to have a few Wedding/Anniversary cards on hand this is your kit. I worked with the Reminisce "Wedded Bliss" line. Reminisce has gorgeous metallic cardstocks and text weight papers. The fun dies and embossing folders are from what else....Cuttlebug!! The hearts, flowers, rings, swishes, swirls and squares are all Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders we have available in the store. They add such a beautiful touch and it is so simple to use.
The kit includes some sentiments that you can use on any of the cards. Because I used the same line of papers you could mix and match the designs on all of them and create a totally different look. Come in and check it out.
