Last Post for July !

The month is ending ... hard to believe.
I have been very busy ordering Christmas products ... the paper lines are beautiful and the dies & stamps are just as nice ! Keep watching - it won't be long before some of it starts arriving !
I have a card kit - Christmas - for you this week as well as a bunch of new dies & stamps. And then a sneak peek at some fun new jewelry products that will be here soon. Come on, I'll show you !

CARD KIT :
This week's kit is all about simplicity and sparkly sequins. The picture doesn't capture the gold sparkle that well but it is pretty !
The kit makes 3 cards and is $5. The dimensional stickers vary in the kits but the sentiments are all very similar and you will either get a snowflake or an ornament. All the kits have the sledding child . Here are the bags of stickers - all pretty !
 And now ...
NEW DIES :
Lovely leaves !

Gears & speech bubbles.

Hallowe'en !!

I love this die .. simple but it says what needs to be said ! 

Lovely for Christmas cards.

Stockings of all sizes !

Another lovely Christmas die.

Ornaments - outlines, overlays, caps/hooks. 

 Teeny candy canes. 

I think this is beautiful !!

A great background die - the treeline.

Lovely trees - Twirly Whirly and Cookie Cutter.

The die to cut the background for the previous dies.

Another lovely tree die.

Perfect for cards !
Left - pegboard die. Looks great on cards with tools in a workshop theme. Also great as a background.
Right - this die cuts your paper in rectangles and adds a faux stitched design.
Arrange the rectangles to cover a card front. 

Back in stock - great for Christmas projects.

Tim Holtz Tattered Florals - Bigx & Jumbo.

NEW STAMPS !!
Fun new sentiments stamps to be used with sparkle & sequins.
There is actually a new die coming out soon that will also cut sequins of various sizes. I have it on order !


                   Great Christmas greetings ... super on cards or INSIDE cards !!


And these stamps are just wonderful !!

Other New Products ...
From Ranger new Dina Wakley Gel Medium ...
use as an adhesive, a sealer, to extend paint ...
very useful !!
BEADING : 
Here is a fun idea ... I had a few bags of these shell pendants come in ... they seemed a bit dull ... hmmm ... I added rub ons and that seemed to perk them up ! So you can easily add words or images to these pendants - easy as "rub rub", done !

And coming soon ... KLIK !!
Klik is an interchangeable jewelry system that is made up of leather bracelets, key chains, pendants, earrings, etc and metal snap on components. The Klik snap pieces come in fun & fancy designs and even watches !! Or they come blank so you can make your own - add beads, photos, resin, leather, the sky is the limit !! The best part is that you can change the components every day !
Seriously fun ~ !
I should have them next week !!








So that's it for this week. Stop in and see the new items !!
