Christmas Cards from chipboard images

 We have several packs of these fun chipboard images at the store. I made up some samples to show how easy they are to work with. There are 4 images but the final one is still on my work bench awaiting time to finish.

Fall Fun Crop

Oh lets see.....we had a Smorgasbord the end of August where we had 73 cards for gals to choose from. Then we had the Christmas Extravaganza with 175 new samples. Now we have our Annual Fall Crop (Cancer Crop) and we spoil the attendees on Saturday with treats from us all day. this will be one of theirs....a card kit. Karli did a beautiful job creating this one.  I am the type of person who loves seeing people grow. It always warms my heart how all my staff just bloom. They all should be proud of themselves for how much they've grown over the years. And if I'd did through and bring out some of the classes from over 15 years ago and showed you gals who attended also have grown. Can you imagine a world without a creative outlet? Not me!

Warmest Wishes

Every year when we do the Christmas Extravaganza......all the new product starts arriving right before or after the event. This awesome stamp arrived the day prior. So I bought one and took it home to quick whip up a card. We always see the things being vouchered through and the ideas are already bouncing through our heads. Yes, we do lay awake at night still thinking. Lol.
We promised 75 fresh new ideas and this year we delivered 175 !!!  All the attendees enjoyed the event. We have one gal who has came from Minneapolis almost every single year for the Extravaganza. That says a lot. We put tons of hours into it, and love seeing everyone so inspired by our creations.

It's a Girl

 Good morning Crafters! I got a little time in my craft room over the weekend.  And we also had my oldests Gender reveal and I will be a proud nana of a baby girl. I am so excited! I am ready for the next phase in my life. The store and retreats consume my every waking moment. And I wouldn't have had it any other way. I give everything I do 110%. So with that being said, I will be needing to free up time so I can enjoy that grandbaby. I have given my heart and soul to business and will start the process of finding the perfect person to do the same.

 We have another Smorgasbord the end of August. I had intended this card to be one of them. But it got too time sensitive to be a $2 card. Although we always offer more than your money's worth for the Smorgasbord....this one didn't make the cut. So this is kitted and ready for sale as card kits.

Thursday Inspirational MNT Day

 Our Thursday's will be back to being make-n-take days for everyone.  The Card Club has become exclusive and is separate from out MNT Thursdays. Now anyone can come on Thursdays and we will always have new cards every week to choose from. About 3-5 choices. And there will be specials each Thursday too!! These are just a couple you'll see in June. And we can get back to doing techniques again. We had to stop for the most past with the Club because 75% were mail outs and we had to do all the extra work for not the extra price.
So we are very excited to get back to demoing techniques on Thursdays.

April Make-n-Take Club

We have been doing the MNT Club for several years and the number has grown to over 60. We are capping it at 65. It has been a huge customer appreciation program as everyone in it knows they get waaaaaay more value than the $16.  But it is a lot of cutting and prepping and we have decided to cap the count so we still have time to concentrate on other things at the  store as well.
