We have a ton of FANCY PANTS goodness. Have you tried the glittery overlays, they are awesome! They add such a pretty sparkle to a page or to highlight a photo. And, you know how much we have loved the papers when they first came in a month or so ago....well the rub-ons and acrylics are just as AmAzInG! You have GOT to see them.
We just got in the ALBUMS from FANCY PANTS too! They are gorgeous!
Finished with that GRADUATION album yet? Your sports pages in a need of a little pizzazz? Have you checked out our 12X12 overlays with the school names and colors? We have the local schools and colleges in 12X12 overlays and in smaller titles too.
Need a special title for your special event? We can create one for you. You pick the color and font and we do the rest.
...ok, so you've heard me say that a thousand times...but really, we keep getting paper in all the time....new stuff....and new lines are added on a daily basis. It's never the same store twice.
This paper is from a new company out of Minneapolis using soy based inks. A tablet filled with nature related papers and coordinating solids to make your camping/hunting/fishing/hiking pages truly stand out. You'll find these gorgeous papers in the Outdoors Section of the store.
These DOODLE templates from Crafters Workshop will make any page or card a masterpiece. Scallops, dots and swirls are the hottest things in paper crafting today. These cool templates will make the whole process a lot easier.
And isn't this beautiful? The delicate glittery edge to this swirl patterned paper will make your next wedding, anniversary or other fancy project gorgeous.
Don't forget about the next DESIGN TEAM tryouts are coming up. More details will be coming.
Vibrant colors and more great edges! Acrylic flowers make it all work beautifully. Metal flowers are a fabulous addition to pages and cards. Traveling this summer? These papers would be perfect with the little airplanes on them.
The WeR pretties are here. I mentioned in previous post about these gorgeous papers and now we have the matching embellies....aren't they gorgeous??
Get your thinking caps on...it is time to get some projects together for DESIGN TEAM TRYOUTS. The current team is doing great job with great projects for us to enjoy each month, do you want to be a part of the team? More details to come on the deadlines and requirements for the next TEAM!
The store has added over 200 new lines to the computers with all the new things that arrived last week.....how many will we add this week?
The manufacturers are making it hard for us to decide what to buy for the store with all the new things they are coming out with..so we are getting just about everything!! New NOTEWORTHY...yes, they even have a NEWER version then the one they just came out with! New Daisy D's has already arrived. The newest MARVY Punch/Embossers have arrived as well....they are featured in the latest Creating Keepsakes magazine. I can see lots of possibilities there....

We are completely restocked on WeR Memory Keepers albums and refills so you can finish up those graduation albums or get a head start on that vacation album. We also received the embellishments to go with the WeR papers we got in....super cool colors and so fresh looking.
Inque Boutique stamps have arrived in the store too....more goodness for your pages and cards.
Flowers flowers everywhere....and we have a ton of them from PRIMA on the shelves. They are such a sweet addition to cards or pages and you get bunches of flowers in those jars. Get your MAY flowers while they last.
Here is a sampling of the NESTABILITIES we have gotten in just in the last few days. We are having fun playing with these dies....such awesome shapes and such professional looking results when you make cards with these fun tools.
We also got in the INKADINKADOO stamps for spring in on Monday...such cute stamps to play with...butterflies, flowers, and much more.....you've got to see them.
Tons of events are coming up this summer, keep checking the blog and website for details on everything going on.
We are currently working on our summer camps schedule...lots of fun things to do there.
We have wonderful pages and cards to choose from. All you need to do is pick your favorite kit, assemble and then add your photos or send out your card. You can't beat that! Check out the website under the page kit tab for photos of just a few of the pages and kits we have available. Many more are in the store....so stop on by to see what the designers have been up to! The designers are coming up with new pages all the time.
We had some fun with Mary Lou learning a few new tricks with the CUTTLEBUG. She worked with inks and embossing folders and all kinds of new products. Everyone loves to learn a new trick with tools they already have....and if you don't have it yet, you can see all the fun you are missing out on.
SWISS DOTS are in stock again....but for how long........?
Ever need a title for a trip or event but couldn't find one? Well, have the solution for you. Our PAZZLES die cutter works miracles on paper to make titles out of the colors you want...without all the work! We have two machines to do all our die cutting on. Of course, we have several title already cut for local places, but we can custom cut just about anything. Stop in to see what we can do for you!
Don't forget about our CUTTLEBUG DEMO this afternoon.....3:30 to 5:30 with the Provo Craft Rep. Should be a fun time!
A good time was had by all who attended the National Scrapbooking Day crop on Saturday. Lots of food, fun and prizes....and they even got some pages done! DOLLY and HANK got a workout yesterday as well, hauling everyone's supplies in and out of the store.
A BIG THANK YOU to all who shopped with us in celebration of our passion...SCRAPBOOKING.
Monday May 5th is our CUTTLEBUG DEMO with our Provo Craft Rep, hope you can join us from 3:30 to 5:30 for some more fun with the BUG.
...Dolly and Hank....our "Handy" little carts for getting all your scrap goodies from your vehicle to the store and back for the crops. They were so cute, we just had to name them. Hope you enjoy them when you come for our crops.
Speaking of crops...tomorrow we have a fun filled day planned. For those signed up in the All Day Crop there will be door prizes and food and fun, and for those who are just at the store to take a little break and shop (while the guys do their fishing thing or whatever) we have Make & Takes for the first 50 people and a chance to win a fabulous basket full of goodness.....you can find a photo of one prize below...so don't forget to stop by tomorrow.
