New Stamps!

Penny Black Holiday Stamps- I know they kind of blend in with the display, but click on the photo to see how beautiful they are!
Hanna Stamps is a new company for us. The wood mounted stamps are Riley the Moose and are TOO cute. The clear stamps are Hannah, doing all the things that Hannah does, like shop, cook, clean, etc.. They make great girlfriend cards and are perfect for scrapbook pages for showers, friends, etc.
We have two new boards from Penny Black. The one on the left is a very elegant design with a gorgeous tree that we all love and the one on the right is a very cute winter themed set. Click the image to see the boards bigger (you're welcome to take a photo of them too if you're in the store)

Just In!

New papers from Best Creations! Embossed and glittered for only $1.15 a sheet! There are some absolutely lovely Asian inspired papers here as well as some delish fall papers.
New from Dream Street! This double sided paper has some of the coolest backs! I just love it when the front is great but the other side is REALLY great. Journaling spots, 6x6 breakouts and more make this release very versatile!
On the left, Bo Bunny Holiday (posted last week) but on the right is Dream Street's super cute Snowman paper! Double sided cardstock weight- perfect for holiday goodies!
Last, but not least- QuicKutz new alphabets (University and Nutmeg are not pictured but they are the two new Cookie Cutter alphabets) The new 4x8 dies are SO cool.. A whole alphabet in one crank of the Revolution! They are perfectly sized for QuickStrips. If you're wanting to do something productive, but don't feel creative, run a few QuickStrips through with one of the 4x8 alphabets and have instant alphabet sticker sheets! Keep lots on hand for impulsive creativity and for taking with you to crops! Blossom Classic is a new size (previously only available in Grand and Mini) and Studio is re-released on 2x2 dies rather than 2x3s so it's easier to use and easier to store.

Gingerbread House & Mini Book Class

Join Alissa this Saturday, July 26th, at 10:30am for this adorable project! Using Maya Road's Chipboard bungalow house, American Crafts 12 days of Christmas paper and tons of great embellishments, she will walk you through creating this house and the matching mini book! It makes a great gift or a wonderful decoration!

In addition to your basic tool kit, you'll need to bring a pencil, ruler and your favorite liquid adhesive (we recommend Scrappy Glue!)

This is a workshop length class (2.5-3.5 hours) so please plan accordingly. For only $27, this class is a great deal and will have you hooked on these cute little houses (Maya Road makes them in three sizes- you could create a whole village!)

New Bo Bunny papers

Bo Bunny's new papers have deep rich colors perfect for autumn, Halloween and fall formals. There are 4 lines that are double sided cardstock (three in the first photo here) and one single sided line that has nice fall colors and is the perfect weight for card making. The line that is second from the left has the same beautiful swirls on the back side, but against a white background so it is a very versatile paper. :)

Bo Bunny's Holiday line has fun colors of pink, blue and bright green with lovely tone on tone swirl patterns, snowflakes and presents. It is double sided cardstock weight and is great for holiday paper craft projects. I think it would make some really cute ornaments! These are hot colors for the holidays and are certainly not your mom's red and greens!

CHA Sneak Peek Slide Show

QuicKutz CHA release!

Click on the title to go to QuicKutz website to see the new fonts.

We are so excited about the 4x8 with the WHOLE alphabet on one die. (How quick and easy is that!?!?!). They have new storage solutions that will hold ALL your dies, border, 4x4, 4x8, 2x2 and Cookie Cutter and they have excellent new goodies for the Silhouette!

They're teasing on their website about the Revolution Love, but I've talked to Rhonda and Ellen, who saw it this morning and they're very excited about it. And I think it's something that will be very cool to have- i don't want to say too much and get in trouble though!
