Last week of January ...

Hi everyone !!
New Valentine papers, 2 card kits, new beading supplies, and some samples to share this week. So let's go !

CARD KITS OF THE WEEK :
This kit is pure glitz. You get all the supplies for all 3 cards for just $5. The embellishment pieces vary in each kit but they are all from the same glorious line by My Mind's Eye. Glittered fabulousness !! I also have the paper in the store this week if you want to do your own thing - or stock up for Christmas projects. It would be great for that too !!

Sooooo sparkly !



This kit is less traditional but still has some "SHABAM" because of the foiled papers.


NEW .. PAPER & STAMPS...
Love this vintage paper from Fancy pants on a kraft background !
The journaling cards would make super quick little cards or tags for treat bags. 

Close up !!

Cute stamp set from Bo Bunny.
Just $4.29 for 8 stamps.
It is a Valentine set but I would certainly use the heart and banner stamps for more than that !!

Here's a quick card I made using the stamps and the FP paper ...

And now this amazing paper from My Mind's Eye ... oooooohhhh ... so fabulous !!




Here's another quick sample for you using the I.O. Heart Border Die as well as the FP paper ...

And there is a bonus with the die ...
A whole pile of little hearts to use on another project !!


NEW BEADS !!

**NEO Chain & Findings
NEO chain & findings !!
Great colours. 



More Blue Crazy Lace Agate & Soft Blue Agate :



PELLET Beads
These beads are curved on the sides so they fit nicely into one another. They almost make a chain when strung. 


And ... a few more things ...
Brass cuff bracelets in 3 different widths.
Stamping, painting, enameling, adhering,  collaging ...

Katiedids are back in stock !
Long pendant forms as well as shorter ones for earrings.
Make a family birthstone pendant or make earrings in team colours !


So that's it for today ... I'm open tonight (Wed Jan 29th) and Friday all day from 10am to 5pm. Hope to see you !!

A Cold but Sunny Friday ... Good Day to get out of the House !!

And come for a visit !
I have lots of great new things to share with you today ... let's go !
First ...
Card Kit of the Week:
This week's kit is made using Graphic 45's Mother Goose. I loved the bold colours and nostalgic designs. These cards could be used for children but I think they would also work well for just about anyone due to their charm & nostalgic feel. You get all the materials to make 2 regular sized cards and one larger card ... all for just $5 !!


* NEW Dies ...
 Great word dies ...

cardinals, pine sprigs + snow caps, circles, and elegant deer. 

These are really cute !
Cut out the hearts with the die & then sue the stamp to add the sentiments ...
and ... viola ! ... candy love hearts !

Beautiful heart themed borders - perfect for Valentine's Day but useful year round too ! 

More Valentine dies. 

And FINALLY !! The deer have arrived !
I have a whole herd of them  in stock. 

These are some great sets from Sizzix.
Very useful & great value !

* New stamps ...
Love the map stamp for masculine cards.
The dotted one below is a wonderful texture stamp.

* And in the "better Late then Never" category ... Tim Holtz's latest stencils !! I cannot wait to use them !!
 * And more ...
Restocked on ALL punch boards.

Including the Candy Box punch board.

Just a small stack from the large box of tape - every width you could want !!

Just for fun ... and speed !
Precut, prescored cards as well as scalloped cards & envelopes.
Just add embellishments or stamping and they are ready !!

Page inserts & paper storage. 

Back in stock !
Tim Holtz embossing folders.
Bottlecaps & Rulers ... Brick & Woodgrain. 

Remember the white ink I raved about when I did the chalkboard style Christmas tags ?
This is it !! Back in stock !
And I also ordered in the black version as well as a few other inks. 

Embossing powder.

Everyone's favourite dimensionals.
Just the right thickness.
Lots in a package.
Good value - just $1.49 !!

Well folks, that's all for now. I still have a box of beads to unpack but I'm pretty sure that will have to wait until next week. I still have to get all these new things put away.
Hope to see you this week !!!

Post #2 this week !

Hi !
 I promised another post ... and here it is !
More new paper as well as some sale items. Actually I have added over 50 new papers ... double sided ... so more than 100 choices !
This week has been spent sorting, packaging, and unpacking so there are no kits but I hope to get those started again in the next few weeks !
Drop in !
Open Wednesday 6:30-8pm and Friday 10am - 5pm.

* VALENTINE'S papers ♥
Authentique's "Smitten"
The sheet on the right has dotted lines so you can cut it apart for little cards or embellishments.
Very pretty traditional pink, reds, and grey.

My Mind's Eye "Cupids Arrow No. 14" 
This paper is foiled so it all shines & shimmers !!

(front & back) Chevrons are foiled. 


Hearts are foiled.


Journaling cards - ready to be used on cards or as embellishments.
Foiled details.

* Teresa Collins "You are My HAPPY" - not really a Valentine's line but lots of love images so it would work really well ! nice change of colours too - peach, salmon, khaki.

These would be cute cut or punched out & used as embellishments.

Chevrons AND arrows - 2 of the hot trends !


Carta Bella "Rough & Tumble" ... a great line for boys !
Boats, plaid, & vehicles.


Fun stickers to match !

* Graphic 45 "Couture Collection" ... elegant & sophisticated.
