Super Duper Saturday

We have a great class happening on Saturday...our Card Marathon.  It was a hit last month when we tried it the first time and we have 15 new cards for this class.  Create those 15 cards for $20 in our open cafeteria style class.  You can craft from 10-3pm.  Most people can complete the cards in 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so plan accordingly.  

With Saturday being our 2nd Anniversary under new ownership we are celebrating with SUPER DUPER Doggie Bags.  You love our regular Doggie Bags and you'll love these big ones even more!  They are available for a limited time while supplies last.  I have enjoyed making Doggie Bags for over a year now, creating over 700 in just a years time, so don't miss out on these!

Don't forget to check out the classes we have posted on our class board (check the website too)

A new class

Pretty Poinsettia

November 17th from 2:30-4 create this tri-fold card and one other Christmas card.  Cost is $8.
The main part of this card is created using the PAZZLES die cutting machine, so all you have to do is assemble the cut pieces and add the extra zing to the card.  You will get to use the Cuttlebug, Nestabilities dies and stamps in this class.  Please bring a trimmer, sharp tip scissors and adhesive.

Card packs

We are in love with these 6 packs of cards and envelopes from Kaiser Craft. The cards are glossy or metallic finish and a snap to finish and send.  And you can't beat the price...$1.95.....but that isn't going to last.  As with everything else it seems these days, prices from the manufacturers are going up.  But before the next shipment comes, we thought we would give you a heads up so you could stock up before the price increase.

Don't forget to check out our monthly coupons on the website and the one posted above in yesterday's blog post.

You asked...we answered

 Did we  deliver?  If you have a request for something, we do our best to find it and bring it in.  We love to try new things too, so it's great when we hear someone get excited about some "new" item (or even an old one).  If you want us to find something for you, just give us a call at the store, email us from the website, or leave your request here at the BLOG!  We can't get everything, but if we get enough never know!

We do get many new things in the store on a daily basis and you never know what you might miss by not stopping at the store.  I wish I could take a photo of every new item that comes into the store to post on the blog, but my poor computer can only hold so much, and there isn't enough room on the blog either. 

Don't forget to check the class link on the website.  Lots of classes are coming up in the next few days.

Basic Grey Island overflows

If you have seen our island of Basic Grey you know we have a LOT of it.  And now the island has flowed into another section!  If that company would just STOP making such COOL PAPERS this wouldn't be a problem!!!  
have been added to the "new island" along with the chipboard pieces, die cut sheets, rub-ons, stamps and more!  Cool stuff you have too see for yourself.  I already have my eye on the GRANOLA line for great guy pages (and my household is full of them!).  The URBAN PRAIRIE line is so pretty you just can't help picking up a few pieces of that too.  Of course, if you follow this blog and my crafting blog, you know that I use BASIC GREY a LOT.

Storage solutions for your CUTTLEBUG

Provo Craft created these cute bags to store our beloved CUTTLEBUG gadgets. There are refills for your entire collection. We have several inserts in stock to fill your binder up.

The green one, adorable with the Cuttlekid on it, is intended for the CUTTLEKIDs dies, but works great for the 2x2 dies and the small embossing folders. Part of my collection is housed in this adorable green case. I just love CUTE storage!

Can you believe it is OCTOBER already?  Yeesh, where did the summer go?

Well, nothing we can do about that, but there is something we can do about the holidays that are coming our way.  Halloween being the first one.

Our INKADINKADOO board is filled with great ideas for fun/spooky/fall cards....and we couldn't stop there...we had to make a few of our own to add to the collection.  You'll want to make a quick card when you see these cards....and we couldn't leave out using the CUTTLEBUG in them.......betcha could have guessed that.....hehehe!
