Flying Off the Shelves

The card holders from 7 Gypsies have been hard to keep in stock-very popular! We just received a back order and have them! Great fun to embellish - put your daily thoughts, staple two together and put "secret" notes in between, use as an address book, not to mention playing with ribbon. I used Basic Grey ribbon and buttons to get started with mine-my first one to be my new address book.

I've always liked to create thank you cards and invitations instead of buyng the boxed set. Of course, I get my thank you all
ready to go - and where is the envelope! We've added envelopes to our mix for that very reason. A7 size is for a 5x7 card
or foldover and the A2 size is for a 4 1/4x5 1/2 size. Our house is baby city and squeezing in the thank you's is....ahh you know what I mean!

My 9 Month Album

I've started my 9 month album - pregnancy - with the trapezoid album from Creative Imaginations. Really love the look of the 7 Gypsies page protector - a unique item and super easy. Heidi Swapp rub-ons, Creative Imaginations ribbon, Scenic Route die-cuts...I just need to stock up on toner and start printing photos!

New arrivals are albums from American Crafts. We have the cloth bound in multiple color choices and the leather in brown and black. Happy to do a special order if we don't have the "one" your looking for.

Autumn Leaves clear stamps

The Autumn Leaves clear stamps are one of our top sellers and with good reason. My assistant Jake does a fabulous job moving the stamps - maybe he'll be a hand model. A career as a male hand model- nah maybe not such a hot idea.

No Not Paparazzi - it's Glitterazzi!

Glitter is a super way to "liven" up your page - maybe not the cover of People magazine being held by Matt Damon - but you get the jist. Add some "star" power to your layouts. We have the ultra fine and the large chards - they take me back to art class in elementary school.
