Make-It Take-It

I really should call it a workshop since it's going to take much longer putting the project together. Anyways, if you're coming, please let us know so we can have a kit ready for you. Also, bring a scissor and glue so that you don't have to wait if someone is using the ones we have at the store. Other than that, we have more glitter paper on it's way here and should be arriving at the store sometime this week. And of course the rest of the Spellbinder's order too. New Sizzix dies are in too.
Happy Sunday!!!

We were slammed with a big shipment from different companies. We received the Cricut Expressions machines, 6x12 and 12x12 cutting mats, and the Cricut Design Studio program.
There are a ton of $1 stamps in the store from Hampton Art in both clear and wood. Also, regular sized stamps in both clear and wood.
New ribbon rolls from Offray too.
Don't forget that we are having a make-it take-it on Sat., April 5th from 10-12 pm. Please let us know if you are coming so we know how many kits to cut.
Hope to see you soon!

Scrap Pink Kit

I made a card today using the new "Scrap Pink" kit from Sizzix. The coloring is a little off in the photo but it really is a nice pink color. The background paper is metallic foil and I used all the dies from the kit except the little flower on the ribbon and the word "hope". Ribbon and flower is glittered using the Doodlebug glitter from the store. Flower die is the new Flowers and Vines by Dena and the letters are cut from Baby Says Yeah.
Almost forgot to mention that the scallop square is Spellbinders nestabilities. I just noticed that you can see my reflection in the metallic

paper. Ha!
Here's a photo of the kit. It contains quite a bit of dies.
I'm working on some other cards with this kit and I'll post them when I'm finished.

Spellbinders dies

Hi everyone! We received a partial shipment of the nestabilities dies. Call the store if there is a particular die you were waiting for. Also, we have been receiving some brand new dies from Sizzix every week. Our Grafix acetate order is in. This item is great for making clear albums, tags, pages, etc. The Sizzix originals and bigz dies cut right through the acetate. Come check out the sample pages in the store. Hope to see you soon!

Easter Surprises

Are you up for surprises? Well, if you look throughout the store, you may just find yourself a little special surprise. There are some great bargains and just in time to fill those Easter baskets. You just have to look. Kind of like going on an Easter egg hunt. Although, some machines wouldn't fit in a basket. Happy Good Friday!!!

Some Easter cards

Hi everyone! I know Easter is coming up this weekend but I wanted to post a couple cards that I made on Saturday. The first card is one of the $1 stamps which I colored and glittered with Stickles glitter glue. Scallop circle and classic circle are Spellbinders dies and Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
Pretty simple card to make.

The second card is made from the Sizzlets Easter set from Sizzix. The cracked egg is an original die from Sizzix. The embossing folder is once again Swiss Dots from Cuttlebug. I

love this embossing folder! And the card is actually pink but somehow looks lavender in the photo.
Stop by the store and check out new products that we ordered from CHA.
Happy Monday!!!

Hi everyone! I tried to post this in the morning, but the server for blogger was down. We just want to let everyone know that we received the reorder shipment of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders. So, if you were waiting for the Swiss Dots folder, it's in the store. If you can't make it down, call the store and we can hold it for you. Have a great weekend!!!
