New Cards

I finally used my new JustRite stamps today. I used them with my new BoBunny papers and Nesties! I scraplifted the card layout idea from Splitcoast Stampers! It took me longer on the website than it did to whip out these three cards! I'm thinking the let it snow one will be one of the make and takes in October.

Aaaahhhh more new stuff!

I've been busy entering new product into the computer today!

I'm loving the new SEI Moravia and Winter Song line! The colors, the foil, the flock oh my!!!!

I finally got in the new Flower Soft card toppers. I love the new multi layer Christmas line I hope to try and work on a card tonight for a sample.

Another new shipment of Justrite stamps arrived.

We love our UPS guy!

Star Wars

The new Star Wars papers have finally arrived! Marge is working hard trying to get them out. We also got in the new Disney Glitter papers from CI. The best part about these is that you won't be full of glitter because they are coated! Woohoo! The new CI travel papers are double sided! I love the covered bridge paper. We've been to Winterset Iowa a couple of times to see the bridges of Madison County, guess I'll have to redo those pages!

Have you tried the new stamps by Justrite? Oh my we are loving these! These layer in great with all of your Nestabilities. If you want to try them stop in at the store I have one open so you can get a feel for them.

Jessica has great card kits for sale at the store. She has been doing fill in kits that are Christmas and super cute. These kits will not be offered as a class, but she takes out all the work and writes great directions so they are a piece of cake to finish.

I got in more Share and Tell albums by Pebbles. If you haven't seen these stop in the store and check out my sample at the store. I did my Disney album of 300 photos this way and love the concept!

Saturday, September 5, 2009

I've been stamping today and loving the Fancy Pants Calendar stamps! I'm thinking this will be the first year I actually do one! My August layout I did with October Afternoon's paper line Cherry Hill. November's page I'm working with Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love

New Graphic45

We finally got our new shipment of Graphic45. We absolutely love this company. It is so refreshing that when a company finds its niche it sticks with it without copying another. It makes it nice for us to offer our cardmakers and scrapbookers a line with its own unique look. And by the way it flys out the door when we get it in it seems you feel the same way!

Our gigantic order of Prima came in the other day. It was a flower explosion!

We received a huge order of odds and ends as well. I'll check out what all was in there and let you know.

We're working on a "shop hop" for October. Watch for the details coming soon. We will be holding it for the entire month of October!

Here is a sneak peek at what we're cooking up:

Kick off crops at participating stores.
