We have all the dies in stock.  There are so many amazing ways to use these dies -- we all know what a genius Tim Holtz is -- this line proves it!  You have to come in and have a look - the hardest thing is deciding which one to buy!  A favourite is the Tatterd Florals die.

Happy Birthday, Raya!

Guess who turned another year older and wiser this past week???  Raya!  We had to patiently wait for her to return from her week in Mexico and when she got back today, we surprised her with this!
We tried to hide behind the counter after our "spy" (who we sent outside to await her arrival!) came running in to tell us she was on her way in.....but our timing wasn't quite right and we didn't time our jumping out from behind the counter to yell "SURPRISE" at the right moment.  Clearly, we will need to work on our execution for next year!

Happy Birthday, Raya!  May all your wishes come true!

Colour. The Final Frontier.

All cardmakers know that the final finishing touch to any open stamped image is the perfect shade of colour.....just that right hint of green, or touch of yellow, the perfect finishing touch to a masterpiece.  At I'm Impressed we have all the tools you need to add that final step.
Gel pens in every colour of the rainbow!

Flock and glitter that add pizzazz!

Copic markers that complete the look!

And of course, inkpads in every colour you can think of!
If you need that final finishing touch of colour, we have it!
