Just arrived!

It's here! Papers from the new CUPCAKE line from Basic Grey! We have 8 of their designer papers, plus matching brads and glazed brads, and some 6x6 pads of all the papers! Stop in soon to pick some up for yourself! Perfect for birthday cards, and other cards using sweet treats!

New paper from Bo Bunny

As mentioned in the April/May newsletter (which I hope you have received by now!) we now have in stock the new Organic line of papers from Bo Bunny! These are really gorgeous, double-sided papers and we also have coordinating, double-sided "Double-Dot" ribbon! Matching brads and flowers were also ordered to go with this paper, but they're on backorder at this time.

Here is a card I made using some of the papers and a technique called paper piecing! If you've never tried paper piecing before, it's super-simple to do and really gives your card or project a Wow! factor! Simply stamp your image directly onto the designer paper, then cut out the part you want to piece! To start on this card, I stamped the entire image onto white cardstock. Then I stamped it again onto the green floral paper, cut out the raincoat and adhered it to the main image. I also stamped the image again onto a solid green paper (opposite side of another piece of the Bo Bunny paper) and cut out the dog's little sweater! The umbrella is a separate, solid stamp. I stamped it in Versamark ink on the Coral Dot paper, embossed it with clear embossing powder and cut it out also. I highly recommend this stamp set called Rain or Shine from My Favorite Things if you're interested in trying paper piecing. It's fun to give the It Girl a different designer raincoat everytime you use it!

Be sure to stop in soon to get some of this gorgeous paper before it's all gone! We have a lot of new items in the stamp department, as well as a great selection of clearance items remaining!

The Great Impressions Stamp of the Month will be up on Tuesday morning, so don't forget to stop by! I think you're going to love the new stamps!

Happy stamping!

No computer!

Just a quick note that my computer here at the store has died! I don't have an easy way to access my email at this time, so if you've been trying to reach me and I'm not responding, that's why! I hope to have a new computer by the end of the week. In the meantime, please call if there's something you need! Thank you!
