Coming Soon!

Just a note of thanks to everyone who has been checking in here so far! I haven't taken too much time to keep this updated but plan to once the next newsletter goes out and a lot more of our stamping customers know about the blog!

I am expecting a shipment any day now from Hero Arts which will include new stamps from their Spring Collection called Design Blocks! These are full-size background stamps, and will have to be added to your collection!

Remember the March Stamp of the Month will be on display Saturday morning! And don't forget about the special on 12x12 paper this coming Saturday from 9:00 to 5:00! Stop in and wish Tammy a happy 40th birthday, and get up to ten 12x12 sheets of designer paper for 40 cents a sheet!

Happy stamping!

Sale Continues!

The Clearance Sale in the Stamp Department will continue through the week, and there are still lots of nice items left looking for good homes! There are also numerous items throughout the stamp department that have been marked down, so stop by soon!

We received a shipment from Penny Black on Friday with some great Easter stamps for your collection, including those cute Hedgehogs, and some birthday stamps! We also received some really cute Easter papers from Reminisce, along with some very bright and glittery paper perfect for St. Patrick's Day projects and cards! And finally, we also have some new St. Patrick's Day stamps from Impression Obsession, Easter and St. Patrick's stamps from Inky Antics, and some really cute tea-themed stamps from Inky Antics!

I expect a shipment from Hero Arts early this week, and that will include more of the acetate cards that were so popular at the workshop! Check the blog tomorrow for pictures of Cindy's cards she made that day! If you placed a Hero Arts order, you will be notified as soon as it arrives.

The Great Impressions Stamp of the Month has been quite popular this month, and we are sold out of quite a few. More are on the way, and you can fill out an order form for anything you want us to hold for you!

Happy Stamping!

New Arrivals!

Did you attend the Stamping Workshop last Saturday and go ga-ga over the grid ribbon, and the felt and sheer blossoms that Sherri was using on her cards??? (See this post for pictures!) They sold out very quickly here at the store, but you'll be glad to know that more arrived today! We now have the grid ribbon in all 9 available colors... white, black, red, green apple, celery, seafoam blue, soft pink, magenta and brown! And the sheer blossoms are available in small, medium and large in pastel, brights, tropical and heritage colors along with matching brads. The felt blossoms are also here in small, medium and large in pastel, brights, and heritage colors with matching brads! Get them while they last!
I also ordered some organdy ribbon to try out... the polka dot ribbon is 3/4" wide and we have blue with white dots, magenta with white dots, and olive green with olive green dots. Then there is also a 1/2" swirled ribbon in white on white, cream on cream, and black on black. Very pretty and elegant!

Glitter Pens and My Favorite Things!

I created this card using one of our new Valentine stamp sets from My Favorite Things called Hearts Galore. And it's hard to tell from the picture but I used our new Spica Glitter Pens on all the hearts, and on the dress and roses! You'll just have to come to the store to see it in person, because I know once you see it you'll have to have a bunch of these pens for yourself!
Stamps: Hearts Galore (My Favorite Things); Cardstock: Feather Boa (Bazzill Bling), Red Hot, Petunia (Bazzill Basics), white (The Paper Cut); Inks: Onyx Black (Tsukineko Versafine), Chianti (Colorbox pigment), marker #'s 850, 761, 815, 847, 177, N95 (Tombow); Accessories: glitter pens in red, pink and clear (At You Spica), foam squares.
