New Goodies - Basic Grey and More!

Wow- Last week brought all kinds of great stuff! We got three of Basic Grey's new lines, Making Memories' holiday line, new stamps from Inkadinkado, Hampton Art, Impression Obsession, Outlines and more! (including a TON of new $1 clear stamp sets!)

Basic Grey's Ambrosia has rich fall tones with a nice edge courtesy of the cool greys. I think it would make very classy Halloween invitations or decorations... It has the colors of the season without the kitsch some Halloween papers have. It's a very 'grown-up' line with the classic Basic Grey look that we all love. The patterns are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making.

Basic Grey's Offbeat has some nice mellow tones that make it a great transitional line. It has a masculine edge to it, but it could easily be softened for girly pages. Perfect for family pages and fall/back-to-school activities.

Basic Grey's Eva is very luxe with deep wine tones, mauves, chocolate browns and a punch of lime. Brocades and swirls that bring to mind the classic Basic Grey line- Black Tie, this is a wonderfully versatile line that could easily be used as an alternative Christmas scheme, fall wedding invitations or your favorite little girl being, well, a perfect little girl!

Making Memories new Holiday line, Fa La La La, combines the swank of contemporary lines with the rich tradition of vintage lines for a perfectly wonderful, and absolutely cohesive line! The embellishments take the cake though- the glitter alphabet stickers are the coolest font- and there are tons of them so you have so many options! They have a matching clear stamp set also.

Speaking of stamps....

Inkadinkado's new Halloween board is great! The stamps are very graphic and fresh! Katmoondu is my favorite :) who doesn't love a witchy kitty!?

Impression Obsession has some really great holiday stamps- including a Coffee Bean Christmas tree! How perfect for all us Starbucks Junkies!

This is kind of all the rest of the wood mounted Holiday stamps we've gotten in over the past week or so. Don't forget to click on the photos to get a better view of the goodies and remember- we ship anywhere! Give us a call and we will happily pull any merchandise you want (the photos make it very easy to tell us exactly what you need!)

New Goodies - Graphic 45 Papers

These new DOUBLE SIDED papers from Graphic 45 are so neat! Just one side is shown here and we had such a hard time deciding which one to display! These are cardstock weight papers and are absolutely perfect for cards and decor items. The patterns are very different- very vintage and we just can't say enough about them! Click on the photo to see them closer, or better yet, stop in and pet them in person. :)

New Goodies - August 6th

Two new lines from Pink Paislee- Vintage Moon and Pop Fashion! They both have matching 8x8 Paper Packs and clear stamp sets. There are also letter stickers in a really great psuedo-cursive font! The owl is TOO cute!
Not exactly new, but new to us- Doodlebug Paper Frills in all the colors available.. With the popularity of borders and border dies, these are a nice, inexpensive way to get the look. And in the ever popular Doodlebug colors!

New product - August 6th

Two new lines from Cosmo Cricket - Mr. Campy and Jack's World (on the left) and the new birthday line - Surprise- from Scenic Route (on the right). Mr Campy is an outdoors/camping themed line with a 50's kitsch edge. The marshmallow man on the embellishments reminds me of old time ads for campgrounds and retreats. Jack's World is a bright and fun kids line with cute animals and versatile stripes and polka dots. (Double sided card stock weight) Surprise is BRIGHT and so cute! The papers are double sided cardstock weight too, and are absolutely wonderful for boys and girls, young and old. Click the image to see up close!

Cornish Heritage Farms' new Elvis stamps- officially licensed by Elvis Presley's estate just in time for Elvis Week! (August 16th will be here before we know it!) They even have the Thomas Kincaid Graceland's 50th Anniversary stamp!
Halloween and Winter Holiday paper from Flair! Flair always gives us such nice, easy to use papers. Their patterns are the perfect size for cards, pages and paper crafting!
New Stamp groups from Inkadinkado! Each box is designed to coordinate within and we have Winter Holiday, Autumn Holiday (with some AWESOME Halloween stamps) and their new Correspondence Collection, designed for card makers to create their own stationary and matching cards.

New Fall and Winter Holiday Papers!

Making Memories Spellbound is already flying off the shelves and it just came in yesterday! The embellishments are so cool for this line with Pebble Brads, Glitter foam shapes, a very nifty sheer Invitation kit and more! The Embellishment box has felt shapes, 3-d paper shapes, buttons and more and is a steal at $11.99. (the box it comes in makes a perfect shadow box!) The paper is below and is very swanky with glitter and die cutting. You know what makes it even better? It coordinates with last years papers too so if you have a dedicated Halloween album, your pages from last year will move seamlessly into this year's!

New Shimmer and Glitter paper and embellishments by Reminisce with PENGUINS and Polar Bears! Super cute! And lots of great embellishments too!
And finally, two Halloween/autumn lines from Reminisce. The one of the left is HOLOGRAPHIC!!! Slick and shiny, this paper is SO cool.. there is nothing like it on the market either! there is much oooing and ahhing over this paper because it's just so different!
