Goofy tiles !?!?

Our header tiles for the videos are not going to the videos. We are working on fixing this. It's like me working on Photoshop Elements -not even Photoshop Pro. I take it little by little. Yesterday I found a solution to a problem that has been bugging me forever. Finding the solution put me in a "good" computer mood. I stopped while I was ahead.
We haven't jumped on the digital bandwagon, because our site is not up to it yet and we're in the backseat too. So forgetting digital, we are expanding gifts, art and toys very soon! We hope you like our new look, not taking away from our favorites in scrapbooking. Check back soon - we have coming some exciting artists - Debbie Thibault, Beth Mueller, Lisa Kaus and the coolest stuffed animals.

Basic Grey

I'm "borrowing" this line from Basic Grey.... "Euphoria™—a line that’s sure to bring pure bliss to your crafting table. This enchanting line captures the essence of light, carefree days on the beach, hours of doing nothing and absolutely loving every second of it."

This is a beautiful Collection - let your imagination fly.

Technique Tuesday

Here's a great idea for making a cube from sticky notes. Use eight thinner stick notes and stack them together to make a cube.

Start by removing the slick backing sheet on all but one of the pads. Then stick them together to make your own cube. You can use your ribbon (or masking tape) to provide extra stability. Lay the cube on its side so you can stamp straight down onto it and then flip it over to stamp the other open side. Move your ribbon (or masking tape) to expose the two un-stamped sides and finish stamping. Our thanks to Technique Tuesday.

This technique would be great for..... lots of stamping ideas. Gets the gears going doesn't it?

Pink Opaque stamp pad - gives a perfect soft pink flourish!

We're stocking up on essentials like Stazon inks and refills, and Making Memories tools. You'll want to try Dabbers for easy painting of chipboard pieces without a brush or any mess. We added KOI brushes for watercolor painters or stampers. You can dip the brush on an ink pad or right in watercolor paint and then paint with it. How easy is that!
If you have any special requests- inks or tools - email

Creative Imaginations

These newest, much loved Narratives are the best. This collection just keeps expanding: fabulous papers (you'll find it difficult to buy just a few), transparencies, journaling notebooks, albums...

Small colorful albums are great to make for a gift or a small themed album. How about a ABC book for little hands to look at. Other lifestyle essentials are white scalloped clipboards, felt pockets and even braclets to decorate.

This is an awsome album by Christine Adolph to match her line of goodies.

Two collections of Patriotic themes just in time for the 4th of July!!!

The Chloe Marie Collection - wonderful Fresh Spring Colors! What a great line -check out the cool rub ons. They changed their packaging and logo - nice update. We carry a large selection of Daisyd rub-on's.

I thought flowers when first working with these brads - great for flower centers. Matching the flower with the brad for color - yet having the center a different texture.

Watch out we changed our video- we have a creative bite before showing the products. So keep watching to see the new Chatterbox embellishments.
