What's New -- LOTS!

We haven't posted in over a week....but there's a good reason!  We've had lots of new stock come in and we've been so excited opening boxes and checking out all the new toys!  Before we get into that, are you ready for Halloween??  Fall is here and Halloween is coming up and if you haven't yet made those fall and Halloween cards, we have card kits to help you out.  You can buy them at the store or online here.  Check out our fall selection at the store!

We also have some fantastic new stamps that have arrived, including the Thomas Kincade and Friendly Kritter series of stamps from Cornish Heritage Stamps. 

The Thomas Kincade stamps may look daunting and challenging to use, but they are beautiful to look at when done....and easier to handle than you think!  An easy way to stamp these gorgeous stamps is by inking up the entire stamp in once colour then adding glitter over the entire surface.  So elegant!

Come into the store and let us show you how! 

We also have some new scrapbooking kits, Christmas 12X12 paper from Kaisercraft, Magenta and Imaginisce and paper pads as well. And with Christmas just around the corner, we worked on one of our Christmas kits yesterday -- here's a sneek peak at the cute project:

Can ya' guess what it is?  Stay tuned....we'll post a pic of the finished project in a couple of days.

So Much Creativity!

We've been hard at work creating more card kits in preparation for next weekend's fun filled event, the B.C. Creative Expo.   You'll want to make sure you visit us at our booth.  We will have demos and make n' takes, not to mention more card kits.  Here's a sneak peek at what you'll see.

It promises to be a fantastic couple of days, full of creativity, fun and friends.  Hope to see you all there!

Sheee's Baaack!

For all of you who took Cathie Allen's classes at STAMP OUT BREAST CANCER --she's back.  Cathie is teaching three fabulous Christmas classes at BC CREATIVE EXPO. Here's a special peak at the projects!  I wish I had time to take the classes! Well worth a trip over the bridge for all you Vancouverites!  For more info or to register go to BC Creative EXPO  

Snowflake Wonder Wreath
So you really have to see this to appreciate it.  It's a page and you can see thru the center and the little photo's flip and it's shimmers and ...

I think it's my favourite but then again check out ....

With a name like that you know it's going to be fun.  Definitely sparkly,  you open it up and there are windows of sugarbeads ......

Technique Treasure
So this is the class that you take if you want to take your projects to the next level - I think Cathie has forgotten more about stamping then I'll ever know.  And though the other projects are stunning this is the one you'll learn the most.

2 New Christmas Card Kits!

We have just released 2 more Christmas card kits! These are so cute. Here are some pics, but you really do need to see these in real life to appreciate them!

This kit really sparkles! We used one of the new Spellbinder snowflake dies to create a snowflake that you add glitter to -- it already comes cut with double sided tape and the glitter comes in the kit! No worry and no fuss! See the close up below.

And this is the second card that comes in kit form.

Once again, the kit will include the glitter for the reindeer's nose and the circle scallops as well.

The kits are $19.99 each, and can be purchased here. All of the kits come complete to create between 6 - 8 cards.
We are busy making more kits, so stay tuned!
