Wow I just have to give you a heads up

We just spoke with Ashley and from what I was told wow is all I can say...

Just get prepared for all the wonderful new paper lines, Tim Holtz new items and stamps, and all the other wonderful goodies from CHA. I know she got the new distress stickles, several of his stamps and some of the idea-ology line as well as the new crackle rock candy. I cant wait to get my hands on these thats for sure.

Ashley has taken a class with Tim Holtz and got to play first hand with some of his wonderful new items from Ranger Products so I am sure she will share with us.

Also she said there is going to be a special company visitor doing demo's at the store coming soon but she was and said it was a surprise for everyone no one knows but just keep watching the blog and twitter for the upcoming surprise. Oh but it isn't Tim she I am sad and happy at the same time as I so want to take one of his classes.

Once she gets back I will update the blog with all the great information and some pictures hopefully she took so I can share so keep watching the blog.

I am happy to show you some preview pages from our upcoming Zinnia Album Class. Zinnia is one of the latest lines from Little Yellow Bicycle. We will be working with some bright and colorful papers in this class. We will be showing you how to combine patterns for a cohesive look. By just adding a few sheets of cardstock will turn these beautiful papers, 3D stickers and epoxy accents in to a vibrant 20 page 8"x 8" album.

This album is colorful! There are bright pinks and oranges mixed with navy blues, purples and light greens! There will be plenty of room for you to add your own pictures and personalization when you get home!

The class will be Thursday night, August 13th at 7pm. The cost is $45 and will be taught by Kelli Panique. Bring your basic supplies along with a straight trimmer, corner rounder and scallop punch (available for use in the store if you don't own one). Space is limited so contact the store to sign up soon!

Crops in August

August 7th, 8th and 9th
August 14th
August 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd special convention crop

We now have room for 30 croppers. There is plenty of space, so e-mail me at to reserve a spot.

We offer a frequent cropper program. When you pay for 10 crops, your 11th crop is free. Cropping is free during regular store hours when we do not have a scheduled crop.

Crop Sign Up for Sept and Oct.

The calendar for Sept and Oct cropping is now online and we will begin taking reservations on August 6th via phone or e-mail.

PLEASE NOTE: I am changing the crop sign up policy. I really hate to do this, but I see no other way. I am still having too much of a problem of no shows and people being left on the wait lists who would love to be able to crop. Therefore beginning with the September crops the following policies will be in effect:

* Payment is due for the crop at sign up
* You may sign up and pay for as many people as you choose
* In the case of cancellation, crop credit will be given
* To guarentee you receive crop credit, cancellation must be made 24 hours before the beginning of the crop. If I am able to fill the spot with less than 24 hours notice, you will still receive store credit.

If you have any questions, please call me at (918) 698-9005.
