M&T week of October 25th.

We have some leftover kits from the M&T from Crop for Compassion last Saturday. It is a Fall card using some of our new Tim Holtz Kraft Core card stock. They are absolutely beautiful colors. The stamp is a leaf background stamp from Impression Obsession. The ribbon is from Mark's Finest Paper. The greeting is from a new Flourishes set and the faux stitching is a Hero Arts stamp. I love the sewing lines.
The Kraft Core I embossed with a Tim Holtz folder and then sanded a bit to bring the color up more. Isn't it gorgeous the way it looks embossed? Can't wait to try them all.
Which reminds me, is there a color you need of Distress or Adirondak ink? Come see what we have. If we don't have your color, we can order it.

Tim Holtz Distress card stock & CANDI

We just got the entire line of Tim Holtz Distress card stock in.
Plus the Kraft Core and all the colors that match the Adirondak inks!
We are up to our eyeballs in 12x12 card stock now!
Look at the gorgeous colors!!! I think this calls for a sale, as soon as we get it put away.
We also have some CANDI from the UK. Hoping to get more before we start all the Christmas projects too.

M&T week of October 18th.

I "CASED" this week's M&T from Tammy Hershberger. She has some of the most gorgeous and well put together cards out there. (She is also a very nice lady too. )
My card looks different, but I can see the resemblance and how it "came to be". The stamp set is the same, from Flourishes. I also used the same embossing folder , but changed the colors around. If you want to see her card, go to the side bar on the right. She is in my list of the blogs I follow, called Stamp Happy. Her photograph is much nicer too. Lessons please....
Come in this week (until Friday when Late Create starts), to make this.
Cost is $3.00

Cool bag from Sears..

Lee discovered this cool pink bag from Sears, and was so excited about it, that we drove there to see if any were left. I have mine loaded already and here it is. It is supposed to be for tools, and that is what we all have of all kinds. What a nice prize they would make, so I'm getting some for the Autism Crop next year. They would make nice prizes at Crop for Cure too! Yeah...I may go nuts and get one for the Leavenworth Inn get away too. There are other colors, but the pink stands out. Thanks Lee !

New items just in...

We have some new Impression Obsession stamps and the Mega Mount Blocks are back in. The nice thing about these big blocks, are that you can use them with other larger stamps. I have used Stampin' Up! & Flourishes background stamps, and Loralie's as well.
There are 6 new background stamps in to use with the Mega Mount, so come check them out before they are all gone again.
Also in, are the Hero Arts & Sizzix combo of stamp set and matching die cuts made especially for them. Here are 2. The Snowman set I will use in my tags class in November.

M&T week of October 12th.

I never get tired of the Stella & Rose paper from My mind's Eye. Our M&T was made using another paper from this series. The daisy image is a Flourishes stamp set, colored with COPICs, and the faux sewing lines are a Hero Arts stamp. Sewing continues to be very popular, but I have yet to break out my machine. That's why these stamps come in handy in a pinch. The clear buttons are still my Bag O' Buttons, which I have used forever. I just punched a piece to lay beneath the button and that way you make it any color you want. Cost is $3.00 and this kit will be available until our Late Create night, when we need to make room for our crafters and artists.

Coloring Hair With COPIC Markers

Have you been using COPIC Markers and wondered the best colors to use on hair? Helen has made a great booklet of possibilities. She has made several stamped images to use, with variety of hair lines to color. We will be using some digital prints and stamped images from Loralie Designs & Stampavie, plus more. The biggest part of the class will be coloring hair, but you will be able to make a complete card at the end of class. Here are a few of the stamped images and the card to be completed in class. The class is Tuesday, October 11th. at 6 pm and the cost is $15.00, which includes a booklet to refer back to for color choices.

Saturday Stamping October 8th.

Our Late Create was a good time, as always, shared with many talented and wonderful women. Here are some of the samples they were working on. Our next Late Create is this Friday...yes three in one month. Can you say "so many toys, so little time"? This month we are "making some time to create".

Don't forget today is Saturday Stamping Day, all day. We hope to see you today too.

Ink refills....

Are you looking for an ink refill? It's really frustrating to buy an ink pad and not have the refill available. If you are looking for an Adirondak ink refill or the Tim Holtz Distress inks, stop by. We just might have the color you need. Although we don't have all the refills, we do carry the refills for all the colors we have had, or do carry now.
Even if you don't have the ink pad, you can use the refills for coloring and other fun projects too.

ATC Club samples- Fall Frenzy

One last post today of the wonderful and creative ATC's. I was impressed with each one of them. Now I want you to take a good look and guess which one was made by a man......yes, I said a man!
Enjoy them and take a guess. Oh and while we're at it, how about a gift to the first correct response. Let's see, what to give...?? How about some May Arts ribbon and a bag of my mom's famous Peanut Brittle?
We post our ATC's in the studio so come in and take a look the next time you visit.

CD Calendar Class

Have you ever seen these adorable CD Calendars? You can make them very personal if you like, but first you need to take the class to learn to make them. Saturday, October 8th. at 1 pm. Cost is $23.00 and there are a couple places left, so call to register.
These samples are from 2 years ago (one she made for her mom).
But this year Kimmay will be using some Stella & Rose paper, from My Mind's Eye, for 2012 calendars.

Ribbons & Flowers on your pages...

Kimmay has another set of pages to make with you, in her embellishment series. This time using flowers and ribbons, we will be making these 2 pages. You don't have to bring a photo, but it would be nice to complete them if you had some in mind.
