All CuttleBugged Out?

We got more of the cute CuttleBug die cutting designs in and they are awesome!  These are the cut and emboss sets that we have been waiting for.  These will make great frames for photos, a nice added touch for a card or even a scrapbook page.  They are part of the Disney themed sets but  the designs will work with anything.  Ivy frames, wooden frame, stars, swirls and bubbles.  Of course, we did get some cute Mickey and Minnie things too, but you'll have to come in and see those yourself.  

We have a Scrap 'til Midnight scheduled for Friday February 8th.  If you are looking for a night out and away to enjoy a little of your hobby, this is the night.  As of today there are still several spots open for reservation.  Just give us a call and a credit card number ( or come in and pay) and we'll hold your spot for you.  Paid reservations guarantee your spot, unpaid reservations do not. This applies to classes as well.

Valentines Day is only 14 days away, are you ready?

Have you checked out our classes wall in the store?  We have a fun little spot right next to the checkout desk with all the current classes posted on it.  You can check out the cards and projects while you shop and see what the project will look like when you finish it.  There is nothing like having a pretty card in your hand to get you motivated to craft.  Sign up for classes while you are in the store, some classes have limited space, so sign up early.  You can cancel a class up to 48 hours before the class holds (our teachers need that time to cut product and prepare in advance of the class).

Check out our store website for photos of the classes if you want to take a quick look.  Link is posted on the right at the top of the pink block.

Ahh, weekends

What a nice one this was too!  The weather was finally "nice".  You could get outside for a little while and enjoy some fresh air so you could get more creative juices flowing for your next that a scrapbook page or a card or whatever.  I know personally, I have a ton of birthday's in March, so I am busy making cards ahead.  Plus with Valentines Day and St Patricks day in the mix, there are lots of things to get you motivated.  And.....with tons of new products in the store we have plenty to motive you too!

CuttleBug Storage

How cute is this?  At the store we have a cute little storage folder for your CuttleKid dies.  This is intended for holding 64 of the CuttleKid dies, but I was able to get 52 of my embossing folders and dies for the CuttleBug in the folder and was still able to close the zipper.  It was just too hard to resist for my collection of dies and folders.  

Remember you still have time to get your projects in for the Design Team tryouts.  We want to see your work and you'll love getting a discount, occasional free product and the challenge involved. Get the full details in the store.
