Almost Ready!!

We are busy getting things prepared for the Stamp Out Breast Cancer weekend. It'll be here in no time! This last week we were hard at work making name tags for each person.

We have lots of exciting things in store for attendees, including contests, make n' takes and a flip-flop booth. We scoured Metro Vancouver looking for flip flops of all sizes in pink and white so that everyone can decorate their own flip flops with ribbons of all colours. It'll be fun!!! The dates are May 30 and 31 -- hope to see you there!

We need you!

Preparations for our weekend to Stamp Out Breast Cancer are under way.

If you'd like to help out, please call us 604-684-4657 or send me an email

If you Haven't Signed Up Yet, What are You Waiting For?

The Stamp Out Breast Cancer weekend is going to be a fun and learning filled event. If you haven't yet phoned to book your classes, you should! We will have classes, demos, make n' takes and lots of shopping. Below are the cards that will be featured in the Copic Class.

This class will be part theory and part playing. In the first part, you will learn all about the fabulous qualities of the Copic markers, how to use them, how to blend them, how to choose colours, followed by a demo of the airbrush system. The second part will be playtime! You will get to play with the markers and actually make 2 cards!

So round up your girlfriends and head on down to join us for the weekend of May 30 and 31. Call us today at 604-684-4657 to reserve your spot. You won't be sorry you did!

Spring Has Sprung at I'm Impressed!

The weather has been lovely in our neck of the woods and all around Granville Island flowers are blooming....

Color abounds all around the market and everywhere you look you see glimpses of bright pinks, vibrant purples, flashy oranges, periwinkles, daffodil yellows and sunny blues. It's like a rainbow everywhere you look! Color everywhere!

And not to be outdone by mother nature, the color inside the store is just as vibrant and welcoming!

Paper in every color of the rainbow, fun flock to match, pens in every shade!

So next time you're in our neck of the woods, come on in and see what nature has to offer, both outside and inside the store! You won't be disappointed.
