Last Week of May !

Hi everyone !
First ... EDIT !!! My very kind friend Crystal has offered to come in & open the store for me Thursday morning so it won't be closed after all. I am so lucky ... thank you Crystal !!!
on Thursday June 6th (next Thursday) I will be opening at 1:30pm.  I have an appointment in Kentville and can't get it for another day. Sorry for the inconvenience !

Card Kit of the Week :
Ho! Ho! Ho! It's Christmas !! I will be doing one Christmas kit each month so you can get a head start on Christmas cards & items. This month takes advantage of cute coloured tags and that wonderful, candy diecut paper !! You get everything you8 need - precut, prescored, prestamped, precoloured - for all 3 cards for just $5. Leave a comment if you want any kits saved or mailed.
 
New this Week ...
* new stamps ... from American Crafts, My Mind's Eye, and Penny Black
 
* lots of mini spools of spring & summer ribbon ... only .75 spool !!
 
* American Crafts "Mayberry" paper ... so cute & fresh !!


 
* Echo Park "Happy Camper" ... I love this paper !! It is adorable ... little tents & campers. Not cute enough to make me want to camp but there really isn't anything cute enough to make me want to do that !! LOL !!


 
* great "guy" paper ... moustaches on the front & western themed designs on the back. "Giddy Up" from Carta Bella.
 
* more of the 6x6 Tim Holtz cardstock pads.
 
* Peel Offs Stickers ... I wasn't sure about these but I ordered some to see ... and I love them !! I used the Happy Birthday sticker on one of last week's cards in the kit. It actually looked like it had been embossed.
 
 So I ordered more ! I have Thank You, Happy Birthday, Musical Notes, as well as design elements like simple wavy or scalloped lines to use as borders and hearts. Only $2.39 per package and you get lots in each !

 
 So that's a bit of what's new ... drop in & see for yourself !

So What's New This Week ?

Hi everyone !
I am unpacking a box of Ranger products today so that means I will be refilled on Distress Markers, Distress Paints, Distress Inks, Enamel Accents, Collage Glue Sticks (love those !!), and a few other items.
I also just unpacked a bunch of that lobster paper ... but I have the last there is. It has been discontinued. So let me know if you want any saved ... it went really fast last time ... 2 days I believe !

Not a lot of deliveries this week because of the holiday so I will just move on to the kit for this week.

CARD KIT OF THE WEEK !
This week's card kit is based on soft tones of aqua, cream, taupe, browns. It also takes advantage of tags, bags, and diecuts. Sometimes all you need is a few fun little odds'n'ends to make a nice card !!
You get all the supplies, including a prestamped tag to put in the bag on the card on the left side , ready to assemble for all three cards for just $5. Leave a comment if you want any saved. And remember - I am happy to mail !!
I love the colours in this kit.
Please note ... the bags & tags vary from kit to kit but are all similar in style & colours.


Scroll down to see the next post ... I used some of the Tm Holtz Enamelled Tags and Rubons ... very fun project !!

Anyway, hope you all have a great week and that you stop in to see what's new. I still have a bin of $5 stamps this week as well as other specials. Watch for some fun announcements as summer approaches !

Okay ... I Squealed !!

I squealed with excitement when I made these ! Love love love them !!
I was looking at Tim Holtz's tag for this month when I saw the enameled tags and rub ons ... genius ! I knew I had to try it. I threw some rubons and the tags in my "take home & try" bag ... the same bag that usually just travels back & forth with me until I take the items out ... sheesh. It was late when we left work and we needed groceries. Late enough that the store in town was closed so we had to go to Kingston. Darn, I am never going to have time to make anything tonight !
After I got home, the tags kept calling me ... I'll just make one ! HA !! Once I started I could not stop until I used the whole package !! They were amazing !!

Here is what you start with ...

And this is what you end up with !!

Here's how :
1. Dab alcohol ink onto the enameled tags ... watch it dry - you'll be amazed at the lovely marbled designs that appear. If you aren't happy, just squirt on a little blending solution and wipe it off. Start again. But really, I wouldn't worry about it ... a little colour is all you are looking for !
2. Choose your rub ons ... and start rubbing !! Seriously, that's all you do !!

I absolutely love them ! They would be fab on a tag or mini album but I am also thinking jewelry ... imagine the possibilities !!

Oh , and here's another thing that makes me giddy ... you get TWO sheets of rub ons in each package !! Wahoooo !!

BRACELET KIT !!
This bracelet is a nice mixture of chocolate browns and denim blues. You get all the materials (beads, metal spacer beads, stringing wire, clasp & tab, crimps, crimp covers) and a photo to follow. Just $7.50.  I made mine without the oval beads shown in the centre but you get it and another spacer bead so it can be made longer.

And here are a few more ...

I made these kits a while ago and was almost out, so I scratched around and found a few more beads ... I have them in the 2 black & white combos as well as pink, and the pink & red combo shown. Every package is a bit different. You get the beads, wire, spacers, clasps, crimps and covers for $5.99. There are no directions because they are just randomly strung but you can reference these photos if you want ! I will attach a photo though just for inspiration.



And this is another random combination. (Can you tell I don't like to do patterns ?? lol) I have packages of beads to do this same thing in yellows, brown + blue, greens, pinks, bright greens, blues, and purples. You get the beads, spacers, wire, clasp, crimps and crimp covers for $5.99.
