What was in those boxes....

...good stuff!!

I made my way over to the store yesterday (it's my day off remember) and got a few photos as they unloaded those boxes...there is more, but you'll just have to stop by and see for yourself!

These pretty papers are from GCD Designs (above and middle photo) and Paper Elements (bottom image)
Look at the shine in this one!!
The soft yellows in this with the crosses would make wonderful Confirmation, 1st Communion or baptism pages.

Last day.....

...for the big stamp sale

We have a nice selection of Holiday stamps that are
75% off (pink tags)
and another selection of HERO ARTS and CAT'S PAJAMAS stamps for
50% off (yellow tags).

Ask the staff where to find the shelves with the "bargain basement" stamps....because Saturday they go back to regular price! 

Hopefully by the end of the day I can get photos of the new goods that arrived yesterday posted....I will just HAVE to stop by the store on my day off to see what was in those boxes....

You may have noticed our new website design and some added details on the header.  We have gotten many compliments on the new design and we love hearing that!

One new detail you may have noticed is the shopping cart.  Our shopping cart is not up and running yet as we are working still on the "fine details".

When it is ready we will be offering a LIMITED selection of Picture This die cuts, page kits and card kits.  The entire store will NOT be available for shipping. 

We got in some new stuff today but with the lousy weather we closed early for the safety of the staff, so the new stuff will have to wait.... darn!

Don't forget to check the crafty blog for inspiration.  

Daisy Bucket

A new arrival from the people at Daisy Bucket....Nantucket Island and a little POSH Posies.

The papers from Daisy Bucket are textured and ever so pretty!
You can do some really fun stuff with those papers that you can't do with regular patterned paper.  Check out the store from samples using the Daisy Bucket lines.
