Another Order !

Hi everyone !
Just unpacked a small order and am expecting another small one this week.

And, of course, they were Christmas stamps & dies. boo. But here's a small album of new product from We R Memory Keepers & American Crafts and I expect to have one more post before Friday.

** I am open this Wednesday (Dec 17) 6:30-8pm and Friday December 19th from 10 -5 and then that's it until January 9th so be sure to pick up any last minute supplies, gifts, or gift certificates this week. **

Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish", and more stamps & dies.

Hi !
I have some more boxes unpacked ... let me share what I have !!
First is the new line from Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish". This is another beautiful line that combines some of the most popular concepts from previous collections ... monthly cut apart sheets, patterned papers, and calendar papers (but smaller this time !). Each month has a cut apart sheet perfect for embellishing, card making, or tags. The back of the sheet is a lovely small scale coordinating pattern. There is also a patterned paper that goes with it that could be used for all sorts  of projects. The back of that sheet could be cut apart into dozens & dozens of little tags and sentiments.
** If you want one of each of the 24 sheets , let me know & I will gather them up for you. 
** Special price of $24 instead of $27.60 if you get all 24 !
Click on the blue highlighted link to see all the gorgeous papers & accessories !!



And there are also more dies , stamps, and embossing folders. I had a very happy surprise when I unpacked the embossing folders from Dream Weavers - a sample board with 3 lovely cards ! 

So click on the blue highlighted link here to see the folders and other items !
That's it for now ... I will probably be back once more this week with another update ! 
Hope to see you Friday !!

It was 20 Years Ago ...

1994. My husband and I had a crazy idea to open a store . It was to be a collection of all the hobbies we enjoyed. We really had no idea what we were doing but we were excited ! And so we started Classic Hobbies. Initially we carried needlework, dollhouses & miniatures, remote control & models, and model railroads. After a few years we added beading supplies. Then we started framing our samples and customers started asking us to frame theirs. A framing shop was added. We framed thousands and thousands of pieces and shipped them from BC to Switzerland. We sold all day and framed practically all night. After a while, that took its toll ... a few surgeries and several years of physio for me with the final verdict being STOP. Other things were happening at the same time and we ended up getting into the feed store business. So we stopped framing, I sold off the needlework and decided what to do next. Beads. I made the store much smaller (because beads are small, lol) and started selling just beads and jewelry supplies. Just a few days a week. It was going to be small, easily managed, and not too time consuming .... well ... lol. I started getting into paper crafting and decided to add a bit of that ... just a bit ... We expanded the store back into the bigger space ... then into more space ... and here I am now with the whole store filled again. lol.
And now it has been 20 years. Twenty years of Classic Hobbies. Time has flown by. I've met so many people and seen so many beautiful projects. And some of you have been customers from the very beginning !
My plan was to have a big celebration this month ... prizes, sales, goody bags, treats ... a big 20th birthday party. Now, I'll let you in on something ... every time I make big plans, something happens. I always say that I should just get up each day and show up ready to roll with whatever goes on because my plans and schedules NEVER work out. And this time is no exception. lol. I ended up in a splint so I delayed the festivities for a few weeks. Well now I am in a cast until January so I have decided to let it ride until the new year. It has really been enough getting the regular things done and so the extra just doesn't seem to be a very realistic plan. So how about we just roll with this holiday season, enjoying whatever comes, and then get together sometime in the New Year when everyone has a little bit of the post holiday blues and have a party ?? I'll let you in on the details when I know them ... ;)

LOTS OF STUFF !!!

Hello everyone !
Well it has been quite a week ! I have boxes and boxes of things to share . And it turned out that my arm is broken so I am now in a cast until New Year's. Talk about bad timing. How will everyone feel about Christmas kits and classes in February .... :(
But, anyway , I have unpacked 3 boxes this week and will be diving into 30lbs of beads this afternoon so let's take a look !
First ... great new papers ...



And then there are all the new dies ... I am blown away by the variety. There is always something new !

 And stamps !!! Again, LOVE THEM !!

 And last but not least , some fun new paper products from Taylored Expressions ... the calendar looks so fun ! (it was going to be a class ... but ... hmmm )

So that's it for today ... I hope you'll stop in this week and see all the lovely things in person. And remember, there are still 2 weeks to fill out prize ballots !

Extended Deadline for Ballots/Prize Draws

Hello !
Because of my silly arm, I haven't been able to take pictures of the prizes or prepare the smaller prize bags for the month's end.  I really want this to be a fun & festive event so I have decided to postpone it until the 12th of December. That will give you even more time to fill out your ballot/survey and more chances to win. Thank you for your understanding.

Hello !

Hi everyone !!
I have some wonderful new things to share this week as well as some great products for your holiday decorating and packaging. Aaaannnd ... I worked really hard last week and all weekend so I would have time to make the pearl bracelet kits I have been promising as well as some great samples and Christmas kits ... and I fell and now have my arm splinted for a week with more follow up xrays after that. Some plans just don't work out, do they ? lol.
So let's get started !
MORE ON THESE IN THE PACKAGING SECTION ... QUICK AND SO EASY !!
I saw something like this on Tim Holtz's blog and decided to give it a go ... too easy !!
These ones are done with Tim Holtz rub ons.
They work beautifully on fabric !


NEW DIES, STAMPS, PRODUCTS ... click on the blue highlighted link to see the photos.



HOLIDAY DECOR & PACKAGING ... 

So that's it for now ... I am expecting more parcels this week so I may be back with another post. 
Here's the splinted wing ... sheesh. 

oh ... almost forgot ... I'm open this Wednesday night ... 6:30-8pm. Hope to see you then !

Mid November

Hello !
This weekend marks the middle of November .. where has the time gone ?? Wow.
This week I have lots of new dies, stamps, papers, and embellishments to share with you as well as beads, charms, and jewelry kits. And I have restocked some very popular items as well. But let's start with this week's kits ...

Christmas Card Kit :
This week's kit is all about snowflakes ... the kit has wooden flakes, glittered flakes, kraft flakes, flocked flakes (say that 3 times fast !!) , and blinged up flakes . You get all the materials you need to make all three cards for just $5.

Christmas Wish List Organizer : This little kit will go together in less than 30 minutes and save you lots of time this holiday season. The little book has 12 wishlist pages - all you do is add the name of your family and friends to each of the pages and keep a current list of their wishes and your purchases !


Now ... on to what's new !! I have new dies & stamps from Penny Black, new dies & stamps from Taylored Expressions, new dies from Couture Creations, lots of new embellishments from Tim Holtz Idea-ology, twine, stickers, paper from Doodlebug & Authentique and more.
Click on the blue highlighted "Mid November" link to see all the photos. Be sure to leave a comment or email if you want anything saved ... things are going quickly these days !!




And now ... paper. I have been selling out of paper so I went back to the vault ... lol. I ordered some of last years releases in order to have a bit more in  stock. And it has been selling quickly - sometimes  you have picked up every last sheet of a design . Some papers are just classics !!



And did you know ? Some paper manufacturers include a strip along the bottom of their papers that shows what is on the back. This makes it much easier to scan the paper racks !!

Now ... let's talk BEADS.
I have a bunch of new beading supplies .. chain, hemp, smaller beads (2, 3, and 4mm) as well as pearls in those sizes, coloured chain and findings ... and more to come !  
Still to be unpacked ... new Swarovski items, new beads, 10/0 seed beads, wire, and that's just a few items. 
I also have some of the Christmas Swarovski kits ready ... tree earrings & pendants as well as a few snowmen earring kits. I hope to get more done tomorrow and over the weekend. 


And don't forget the snowflakes !! It's time to start making them . They look beautiful hanging in the window, on the tree, or on parcels. They are super simple to make and would be a fun family activity. And did I mention that they are very inexpensive ? The forms come in 3 sizes and all you need are some beads . I have bulk bags of beads but I also have lots of bags done up in $1 bags ... and you cna make many of them with just a few of the $1 bags. You can bend or glue the ends but I prefer using rubber earring backs at the end of each arm. A bag of 100 is just $2.99 and you won't regret buying them - so much easier than messing around with glue !! 


 And charms ... I have filled the bins with Christmas charms . They are great for earrings, on chains or bracelets, hanging off ornaments, on cards ... so many uses !! (The number listed by each charm is the order # and the other number is the price.)


And LAST but not LEAST ... a ballot. Each week you will get one instore survey ballot with your purchase. Fill it out and bring it in by 5pm on November 28th. I'll be drawing for some wonderful prizes at the end of the month ! More details soon ...


So I think that's it for now. Hope to see you this Friday !!

November !

Hello !!
Well November is here ( already ??) and it is time to hunker down to some serious crafting. I have been buried under boxes and boxes of lovely new things and am trying to find the bottom of the pile. I will share with you what I have unpacked so far and then get back to unpacking the rest. I have 2 HUGE boxes of beading supplies and they always take a long time to unpack. Do you know how many beads are in a 35lb box ? No, neither do I but I would guess a lot !! lol. But I am hoping to get through them and then start assembling Christmas kits. If I don't get that done this week I will have to do it this weekend ... I know everyone has been looking for them. And on that list are also the pearl + crystal bracelet kits ... so fingers crossed ! I am also reallllllly hoping to get a few samples made. I will do my best.
So without further ado ... click on the blue title link to see all the new dies, stamps, tools , inks, twines ... you name it !!


And as usual, if you want anything saved or ordered, let me know by commenting here on the blog post or send me an email (link in the sidebar). I am open this Wednesday night 6:30 to 8pm and then again Friday from 10am to 5pm. Hope to see you !!!!

Boxes Galore

Hi everyone,
I have been chopping paper & unpacking boxes all week.  I am just hoping that the bags I ordered for the paper arrive this afternoon (they were supposed to be delivered Wednesday ) so I can get all the stacks packaged up. They are spread out everywhere in the store !!
I have some new stamps & dies to share today and then I have a giant box of beads/jewelry as well as 2 big boxes of scrapbooking supplies to unpack ... so I'll be quick !!
* (no kit this week ... ran out of time !)
* A reminder : if you have Hallowe'en kits on hold, this is the week to pick them up so you have time to assemble them for the big day !
* I will have more bags of the precut paper this week - they sold out in a flash last week. Remember , you get 15 pcs of patterned paper precut to fit a standard A2 sized card for $1.99. I will have lots of Christmas packs and a few everyday packs. More everyday packs to come in the weeks ahead !

So  there is lots of new things from Ranger, Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz) , Memory Box, I.O., and Kaisercraft. Click on the blue highlighted link "A Big Box of 'Oh My Gosh' " to see the photos.

you will get a Santa tag, a round tag, and a vintage tag in every kit. 

Hallowe'en Card Kit .. cute not spooky !!

HUGE Amount of new Stock this week !!

Hello !
I have so much to show you this week !! But first ...
CARD KIT OF THE WEEK ... This week's kit uses the new snowflake stickers I just unpacked. You get all the supplies to make 2 cards and 3 tags. All for just $5 !!
And , if you want to make more, I have the snowflakes for $1.99 pkg. That's enough to make many cards !
There is something a bit different about one of the cards this week ... the second photo will show you what that is !


See through !!

Here are the stickers ... just $1.99 pkg.
And now on to what's new ... SO MUCH !! I have new dies, new stamps including some great interactive ones from Art Impressions, new embossing folders, lots of new Christmas papers & embellishments , as well as more Hallowe'en and Fall papers and doodads.

A Note about Holiday Papers ...
I did a quick check and most of the holiday paper has arrived. I just have just 3 more Christmas paper lines , 2 Hallowe'en , and one Fall and then it will all be here. The paper I have now is selling quickly so be sure not to wait too long to get your holiday supplies. Last year there were 4 suppliers in Canada to buy paper from - this year there is one. So that has limited the supply somewhat but also larger companies have bought up many of the smaller designer companies and there are fewer lines being offered. What is available though is beautiful ! But it is selling quickly. My supplier has sold out of many of the lines and my stock is going quickly too ... there will be no more holiday paper once it is gone so don't wait too long !! Get it while it's here. :)

So now ... let's take a look at the new products. As always click on the blue highlighted link "Bucket Loads of New Products" to be able to go through the album ... 98 photos this week !! yikes ! Leave a comment here if you want anything saved, on the album page if you are a Facebook member, or send me an email. Thanks ! Enjoy !


Drop in this Friday and see all the great new things. And there may be more - we'll see how I make out tomorrow !!

Lots to Share !

Hello everyone on this sweltering day ... yuck, hard to believe it's September. Anyway, I have lots of Hallowe'en and Christmas products to share - that should turn our minds to more pleasant temperatures ! There is so much new this week - and so much more coming in the next few weeks - that I decided to do videos. In a video, I can show you all the papers, open & display all the packages of embellishments, and tell you a bit about the line and project ideas. And all in just a few minutes. The photo route takes hours and is no where near as thorough. So, why not make a 'cuppa' and get ready to watch the videos.
So first up is this week's card kit ...
KIT OF THE WEEK :
This week's kit uses some bright & cheery vellum stickers. Add a few fun embellishments, twine, paper, and a wee clothespin, and you have 3 fun cards. You get the materials for all 3 for just $5.
PLEASE NOTE : It won't be ready until Friday ... I need to get ink to print the directions. Just ran out. 

 PAPER :
Lots of new paper lines & accessories.
 * My Mind's Eye : "Just Sayin' " ... this line is so pretty ! It is pinks, coral, blush, mint, and GOLD. And I mean glittery fabulous gold. But the best part is that it DOES NOT COME OFF !!!! 
Here are a few pix but please watch the video to see all the great products, the sparkle, and the wonderful ready-to-frame prints.


LOOK at the gold !!
Watch the video to see the SPARKLE !!



Here is the video ...
 (in this video, I finally remembered to turn off the radio in the background , lol)

* My Mind's Eye : "Sleigh Bells Ring" - a beautiful homespun, almost Nordic line. Love the colours, the plaid, the deer. Love it all !!
I could just frame the JOY paper !

The backs of the pages are great for card making. 

Lots of fun go-withs !

BOWS !!
You get 12 for $4.79 and they take seconds to assemble.
I quickly assembled one in the following video ...

* Simple Stories : "Cozy Christmas" .. this line is wonderful ! It combines photographic elements, "joy", hand writing, some iconic images (old red truck, sled, etc) as well as lots of wood grain. Stunning !
3x4 cut aparts - perfect for cards or pocket scrapbooking.

4x6 horizontal cards

4x6 vertical cards

the lovely papers - watch the video for a better view !

The backs of the papers - great for cards !!!

sticker sheets - you could make lots of cards with these !!

SN@P cards, Insta Squares, Diecut Overlays, Chipboard Stickers, 6x6 pads, diecuts.
All the packages are opened and displayed in the following video ...

And then there was the Hallowe'en lines that I showed in the video on the weekend. here are a few pictures but you can also scroll down and watch the video.
* My Mind's Eye : "Frightful" - very vintage/retro style and glamorous too !! I love the orange glitter and the glittered diecuts.

* Simple Stories "Frankie & Friends" - this is the very first Hallowe'en line from Simple Stories. It's more cute than spook so it would be perfect for layouts for your children's costumes, treat bags, or home decor. Cute, cute, and cute !!


Here's the link if you missed the video.
