When I opened this order, there was only about 1/3 of my original order in the box. So quantities are limited ... "call dibs" if you want anything saved ! sadly some lines were only carried by this supplier so I can't even order more. Have to start looking for other suppliers ... ugh.
Adorable embossing folders .. I have 6. 

GREAT diecuts from Kaiser craft ... loads of pieces, all sports !
Perfect for sporty layouts & cards.

Volume III - only 1 copy left.

This week is already half over ... and where is May ??

Wow, time is just flying by. I feel like I am being buried by boxes to unpack, paperwork, orders, ... eek !! I have no idea where the rest of May has gone ... can it really only be a week and a bit before June ??  Time to think about Father's Day , weddings, and summer projects ... guess I better focus. lol.

So let's start with what I unpacked today and what I made yesterday ...

BEADS :
Here is the project I made yesterday . I spent the rest of the day doing up orders for kit supplies so I can assemble packages for those who would like to make their own. I should have kits together in 2 weeks as well as more samples in different colours. This one is pink-a-licious !!

PAPER :
* New dies & embossing folders from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.
Great dies !
Love the birds and I can imagine so many uses for the prize ribbons .

That trophy & ribbon die is too cute !

This is the one I have been waiting for !!
The cupcake stamp is one of my favourite and to have dies with it .. icing on the cake ...
 (get it ?? lol)
My supplier has already sold out of these and is taking orders for another order.
I have a few left but after that I'll be adding my name to the pre-order list too.  

Look at all the tag sizes and style you can cut with this set !!
This die is sold out at my suppliers as well and I am out already too !
But if you want one, let me know. I am placing a pre-order with my supplier to get more. 
* New Sizzix PROMO Dies & Embossing Folders ... that means great savings !!
This is a great die for card making or adding some pattern and texture to a layout. 
Or ... cut your own stencils !
This Moroccan Card Front die is just $13.99 !

And these fun and exotic embossing folders are also a great deal .
You get a package of 2 for just $7.99.
I love the exotic and lavish florals.
Don't wait too long !!
* My Mind's Eye
6x6 paper pads - Wood
This would make wonderful cards and mini albums.
Every type of wood pattern you could want ... 




And then they have 6x6 pads in Metallics.
*Note, they are not printed in shiny metallic inks but in colours to replicate silver, gold, and bronze. 
  Lots of great patterns ...



And then to finish it all off ... MATCHING TAPE !!! Except, the metallic this time really is metallic - shiny and sparkly !!!
Wood tape and Metallic tape ... 4 rolls for $9.99.
* and now .. a new stamp from Impression Obsession ..
This stamp is very simple but very elegant and , I think, dramatic.
"Watercolour Tulips"
* and last, but not least, a few new products from Deco-Page.
I have carried their decoupage medium for quite a while but these are a few new products ... and they will really come in handy when some exciting new products arrive next month ... ;)
Photo Transfer Medium
Antique Decoupage medium
and Decoupage medium for napkins and tissue paper to make application easier !
Well, that's it for now. Please drop in !!
I am open the usual Friday this week as well as Wednesday evening. (tonight !)
