The colors of a RAINBOW

Do we have every color of the rainbow in cardstock?  Well, I would say it is as close as you can get!  We have all the colors in the WorldWin ColorMates line and lots of great colors in the BAZZILL line as well.   Isn't it pretty?  It's like 30 feet of cardstock heaven.

Have you checked out our Class schedules at the store website?  Classes are added all the time so check the website frequently for new additions.  Looking to learn something new?  Give us an idea of what you are looking for in a class or technique to try.  We are always looking for new ways to make scrapping and card making more fun.

Can you see me now?

I am a MESSY scrapper.  I like to make a mess, get messy....messy makes for fun.  BUT, after while my tools start to look a little worse for it.  I found a simple solution for cleaning my acrylic stamping bars...fingernail polish remover!  Simple and cheap.  These bars above were a total mess.  Covered in ink streaks, I even had craft ink on them from something I did months ago and with one swipe of a cotton ball doused in polish remover...ta da...clean. I mean, the WHOLE point of the clear acrylic bars is to be able to SEE through them right?  Don't use this on your acrylic stamps, just the bars.  Use your usual stamp cleaner on your precious stamps.  

Just a little tip for y'all.  Have a crafty weekend.

Have you seen them?

Did you make it into the store to get the latest CUTTLEBUG dies and embossers.....well, they are going fast.  I am loving the Birthday Gift die/embosser set.  It is so versatile and fun to work with.

Do you need a title or other graphic that isn't available (or you haven't been able to find) from the mainstream manufacturers?  We have two die cutting machines that can make you just about anything you can think of.  Give us a little time and your idea and we can craft you the perfect title or cut for your scrapbooking page.  We also have many precut titles that you might be looking for.

Puerto Rico
Kennedy Space Center
Kalahari Resort
Wisconsin Dells
just to name a few....and  we have many many more....give us ideas for titles you'd like to see and we might just be able to come up with something. We are always looking for new ideas.
