M&T week of Jan. 25th.

Late again, I know....But you know the saying.
I did a little switch for this week and made it a little more "male" looking. So it could be used for either. You can add a heart or use it for birthday.
This is another Gina K stamp. They fit with Spellbinders. Oh how I wish we could buy these to sell. But you can come use ours in studio. The paper is Kaisercraft "Up, Up and Away" collection.
It will be available all week to make. Cost is $2.00

Don't forget our sale on Sunday, Jan. 23rd. from 12 to 5pm and Monday, from 10 am to 2pm.
It is our "collections" and the retail area will remain closed during those hours.
The studio is busting with all kinds of deals. I took some photos, as our e-mail was not working tonight. Hope to see you there!

This is the M&T for this week. Come in any time this week and do this card. Cost is $3.00
This is Kaisercraft paper and Labels Four of Spellbinders. The stamp is actually a Gina K, which we don't carry, but I couldn't resist using it. Hopefully she will sell to retailers someday soon.

(I believe we are having potato soup)mmmmmmm

Signature School Crop. Thanks to all who came!

With lots of food to keep us going (and chocolate to keep us happy), several ladies tried the Cuttlebug embossing folders, and Big Shot die cuts, for the first time.
Punches and stamps and inks, oh my....
So many toys, so little time!
Even Mike from next door, (The Rug Gallery), came by to say hello.
Check out his beautiful rugs next time you come in.

Page Challenge

Here are some of the pages from a challenge we had, using some
Bo Bunny, Bella, and Bazzill Chocolate Cordial paper. The new M.S. All Over Heart punch was also in use.
They were all vey nice, original pages. So hard to choose. The winning page will be on display at MTTC for the next week.

Signature School Crop

We had a great time today sharing, learning, cropping, creating and eating and eating and eating...
Oh, that was me doing all the eating.
We met some very nice ladies today and some had never made a card before. They were very excited to do one at M&T. A few photos from today.

M&T for Jan. 11th. week....

School closings really throw off my routine. I'm excited for the kids, plus I can actually sleep in another hour at least. While I figured no one would be out in snow, I forgot to post the M&T.
I was reminded today that I still hadn't done it. Opps...
The cost is $3.00.
We used one of the new Spellbinders, Beaded Circles. The paper is Mitten Weather, by Cosmo Cricket.

If there is a Spellbinder or other items you are wanting, let us know. We can order it .
Stay warm. But if you must go out, stop by.

Quilting Class Wednesday Jan. 19th.

We are offering beginners quilting class again. Here is the cute hot pad you will learn how to make. Dorita is teaching and loves to quilt. This is a good beginning project to make, and a cute gift for Valentine's Day too.
Call to register. 490 4790
You can still register if you know how to quilt and just want to join in the fun.

SnowPeople Class

We had a fun time making our Snow People on Friday evening. You could choose to make a boy or girl globe. Afterwards we lined them up for a group photo. Cute aren't they? I wondered about one in summer attire too???

Cricut classes, continued....

How many of you got a new Cricut for Christmas? We had our first classes of the year. More are wanting to take the Cricut classes, so we are offering again and again. Let us know what is a good day or time for you.
Here is our last class from Saturday. We had the beginners class in am, then advanced class an hour later. If you don't have a Cricut machine yet, you can use one of ours to take the class. But you must reserve it first.

New Punch, by Martha...

There is a new punch from M. S., and it is an "All Over" punch. You can set the punch anywhere on your page and punch it. Here are the photos I took of one we will have to use in studio. We would carry it in retail, but figured you would all use coupons at "you know where" to get it cheaper.
(However, we will order it if you want one.)
The photos did not line up in order of use, (sorry, not sure how to get that worked out), but you get the gist of it.
There is a magnet that attracts the correct corners to connect, from between the card stock. It will not "lock in place" if you try to turn the corners to wrong area and punch.
Wish I had thought of this tool.... They retail for $17.99

Tuesday Take Away.. Jan. 4th -8th.

Our first M&T of 2011 is a "Thank You" card. We decide perhaps many of you need several of these, so the first one is $2.00 and then if you make a second one, it is $1.50 each after that.
It is a simple, yet lovely card and would not take much time.
(Please keep M&Ts at 1 hour to not have studio fee added.)
