We have a large selection of alterable tins from Art Blanche.  Great for any occasion that you might need.  The large tins work great as a recipe box or handmade card holder, or even a small album can fit inside.  The band-aid boxes are the perfect size to tuck a gift card into for a birthday.  

If you need more ideas for decorating the outside of the box, stop by the store and see what the staff at the store have done with them.

Want to remember that special event, we have die cuts available to keep your STATE memories alive and we can create custom diecuts for other special events.  Just stop by the store to order up a diecut with a personal touch.

More boxes

We have been buried under boxes all week at the store, literally.  I think we had the entire front desk area covered with  products and boxes.  Lots of new stuff has arrived at the store plus restocks of some  already sold out product.  Some of that restock is CUTTLEBUG dies and embossers.  Did you miss some designs when you were in last, come check out what we have now! We have a LARGE selection of all your favorite designs from CUTTLEBUG, and you know how we love the BUG at the store.  It's one of our favorite tools, just ask, we'll show you.

Classes: Don't forget to sign up early for classes, some sell out very quickly.  The next one is the Scrappages class on Tuesday March 11th. Ready to work on those Christmas and winter photos? I know I am ready to put winter behind me!  Create three pages in this class for $12.  Leann will be teaching from 6-7:30 pm.

Scrap 'til Midnights:  We have a STM every other Friday night and once a month we do a Mini Scrap on a Wednesday.  Our STM last night was full with a waiting list.  Future dates are March 29th and April 4th.  Sign up and pay now to guarantee your seat in the next one.

Getting Crafty

I just could NOT resist this little album from Melissa Frances that arrived last week, so I just had to create a quick little summer vacation album.  You can see the whole album on display in the store.
Have you tried the CUTTLEBUG embossing folders?  There are amazing!  They emboss such a clean crisp image, you'll love using them and creating with them.

For the above card I used packaging from a CUTTLEBUG embossing folder (that I couldn't resist buying) and the "happy birthday" embossing folder, a piece of patterned paper and a word sticker, quick easy and oh so cute, don't you agree?  Have you been wanting to try out a CUTTLEBUG?  We have a demo/make & take scheduled for March 25th.  You can see it in action and have a little something to take home with you when you're all done, what's not to love about that?

Stop in from 1-3pm on TUESDAY March 25th to see for yourself what I am talking about and prepare to FALL IN LOVE with the BUG.

Buried under boxes!

We got buried behind the overflow of boxes that arrived today.  What was in those boxes??  Too many things to mention...but I will give you  a little taste of what's hitting the floor as I type:

The CROP-O-DILE BIG BITE is in the store.  It's awesome, it's orange and ready for you to make eyelet setting and hole punching a whole new experience.

And then....we also have these tasty new goodies that have been unpacked....

You'll have to stop in the store to see how beautiful these papers, tags and embellishments are.  So, if you've been looking for these to arrive in store...your wait is over.  Now, you just need to be one of the first to get your hot little hands on these new lines from My Mind's Eye

Chipboard Albums

I mentioned in yesterdays post about the chipboard albums we have...and here they are.  The smaller ones measure around 3"x6"...the perfect size for quick mini-album.  The front and back covers are chipboard and the insides are cardstock.  I can see these as a great Mother's Day gift or a Best Friends album.  

The THRIFT SALE date has been announced

April 26th, 2008

Stop into the store for the full rules sheet and to get your thrift sale number.  First come first serve.

I can see clearly now.....

CLEAR albums have arrived from CLEAR SCRAPS at the store and we are on our second order already.  Fun shapes and different sizes make for an interesting album.  These are great with rub-ons, gorgeous patterned papers, and stamping on them with craft inks.  So much fun.  If you have been thinking about trying an acrylic album, now is the time.

We also had an arrival of chipboard albums in great shapes for fun projects.
