May is Upon Us !

Hello !
Well, the last day of April. This month was gone in no time. With May comes Mother's Day and that's what this week's card kit is all about. I also have some new products for die cutting as well a few new dies & embossing folders. And I have been unpacking beads - some new boxes & a few boxes that I completely forgot about (oops !!) - so there are new beads, findings, and restocked items.
There are some other new products but it will take me another day or so to do the samples .. so I'll save those for then ! ;)
Let's get started, shall we ?

Get all the materials for all 3 cards for just $5.

Quick Release Paper
 This paper will help you with those tricky dies ... a layer of this with your desired paper will make the design easily come out of the die ! It keeps your dies clean & sharp. You get 2 rolls per package 5m/16.4feet per roll. It's also very pretty - great for collage projects !! I think it can be used in the same die several times.

Ejection Foam Sheets
 We all have a few dies that are tricky to cut ... the paper sticks in them and the cuts are often not as clean as they should be. This ejection foam will help that !! This foam actually gets cut & stuck in your die because of adhesive on one side. Just leave it there after cutting. Use it over and over. It will make intricate dies much easier to cut. The foam layer will make the paper push out easily and give you clean cuts.
Here is a link explaining the process ...

Sanding blocks & little snips. 

New die !

And how about this embossing folder ?? Lovely !!
Lots of $1 bags of metal beads.

I received a sampling of new jumprings in a wide variety of sizes & weights.
There are lots to choose from and I will be ordering more of the most popular sizes.
Just $1.99 bag.

Restocked on Nymo thread - white, black, brown.
Also restocked on ball head pins, earwires, jumprings, crimp covers, and more. 

Small bags of wooden beads. 

More strands. 

These beads are really cute even if the photo doesn't show that very well
They are little red spacer beads . They would look great with white & navy for a nautical look, for example.
Or mixed with black ... 

Beautiful glass pony beads.
These beads have a beautiful coating that is cut away on the sides so you see both the lovely coating and the glass underneath.
The holes are larger so you can string them on leather or some of that lovely new suede.  

A sampling of the beads I have put out in the trays - for sale individually !
So that's all for today ... I have a few more samples to complete and then I will have more to share ... keep watching !!

A Banner Kit and Many New Items !

Hello !
I have a banner kit to celebrate spring and a whole pile of goodies to share. Let's get started !

Weekly Kit :
This week's kit is a fast & fun home decor project. You will easily assemble this cute little banner to celebrate spring. It would like lovely in your home or make a great gift for a friend or even as a Mother's Day gift. Because it is long & narrow, it would look great by a door or on a small wall. And keep that space ready - I will have more for the other seasons as well as holidays. You will be able to switch them out !
The kit includes all the supplies except adhesives. A glue stick and dimensionals will work best. You will also need scissors and an emery board or sanding block. The kit is $15 and you will have a selection of spring stickers left over to use however you choose .

 Here's how I use the emery board ... in case you are wondering ...
I use it to sand of the edges and get rid of any paper overhang .

Here is the kit ... there are only about 12 left so ask for yours now if you want one !

And now on to new products ... make  a tea, there are quite a few !!

* "die-namics" dies ...  these dies are beautiful !! And they are actually quite a bit bigger than I was expecting so that makes me H.A.P.P.Y. !!
Sizes are written on the pkgs under the pictures.

See ? Quite large !

This duck pond & ducks die is perfect for masculine cards. It would fill the bottom of a standard card.
Very striking !

Cute !!
*Taylored Expressions ...
16 stamps in this adorable set !!!

These two compliment each other. Six stamps per set !

Love these simple flowers as well as the doodle style flower.
You can change the look by colouring ... or not !

Here are a few that I am working on right now. Not finished but you get the idea !!

Dies for vases & bows. 

Love these simple fresh dies for fun flowers !
* Impression Obsession ...
Grass, fences, waves ...

The wooden sign dies are pretty cool - they emboss the wood grain as well as cut !

Cover A Card stamps.
I think we would use these all the time !
Chicken wire, wood planks, wood grain.

I love the hand drawn doodle style of these stamps.
Lovely to colour or watercolour. 

Nice sentiments.

Sweet ! And true !

I love this !!

More animals !
AND I am restocked on loads of the dies from IO that sold out previously.
* Memory Box  and more ...
Tools for everyone !

These dies cut out lots of tiny flowers ... see the next photo ...

More lovely stencils.

Great stamps !!
Well, I think that's it for this week ! Lots of new products to check out. Drop in !!
