Sizzix turtle

Hi everyone! I made this card the other day and forgot to post it yesterday. I actually started off using the Sizzix frame die and ended up with the turtle from the sea animal set.But, it came out so cute so I stuck to it. Here's the deets: Sizzix sea animal set, Cuttlebug embossing folders swiss dots and circles (can't remember the name), Bazzill cardstock, Hero Arts cardstock, and Hero Arts stamps.

Here's a closer view of the turtle. Have a great Monday!

Princess invitation

One of our customers stopped by a couple weeks ago to show us this really cute invitation that she made for her daughter's birthday party. She used the Sizzix castle die and a sizzlet set. It's all dimensional too.
Can you believe she made a 100 of these??? Thanks Les and hope you don't mind that I posted this.
Have a great Saturday!

On to pumpkins

Although Halloween is right around the corner, I wanted to make something for Thanksgiving. I started out using Card Kit #2 from Sizzix and used the new pumpkins embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Also used the swiss dots border for the brown strip of paper.Give thanks is an older sizzlet die set that I used mirrored copper paper to cut out. And the pumpkin die is also an older Sizzix die. I used Bazzill kraft paper for this card after noticing a stack of them the other day while I was at the store. It really embosses well.Our Halloween shipment of new Sizzix dies should be arriving at the store anyday now.
We received a big shipment of DCWV papers yesterday so you may want to check it out at the store.
Have a fantastic weekend and hope to see you soon!

Halloween bat card

I spent most of yesterday afternoon playing with some new products. In between that, I made this Halloween card for the store.
The background is the new woodgrain embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The haunted house is a dollar stamp from Imaginise and the cute little bat is a Dandelion Designs stamp.
Here's a closer up view of the card. Although you can't even see it, the bats on the haunted house is glittered with black stickles.
Have a great evening!

Clowns, sweets and a ghost

Hi everyone! I've been a little behind on posting these samples that I made over a week ago.The first sample is a Sizzix original die from the circus line that was released last month. I used the fold method so the clowns are holding hands around the box. I put a bag of jelly belly's in the middle of the box. This is a cute project to make for a baby's first birthday.This 2nd sample uses the Sweet Set from Sizzix. It's actually an older sizzlet set that is discontinued but we are still able to order it in case you want one. So Sweet sizzlet die, circle Quickutz, Cuttlebug swiss dots folder, and Hero Arts bling and glitter. *Edit* We do have some of these dies available in the store and we have more coming in.
This last sample is a clear acetate tag that I embossed with the new spider webs folder from Cuttlebug. Stamps are all Hero Arts, Stickles glitter, Hero Arts cardstock, ric rac, ribbon and a button.
Whew! That was a lot for tonight. Have a great Sunday!

Scrapbook class?

Hi everyone! If you noticed, I have a poll on the sidebar that asks if you would be interested in a scrapbook class. If you get a chance, can you either comment or email us if you would be interested in something like this? I'm trying to get a feel out there if there is any interest. The class would probably be a mini scrapbook. Thanks and have a great evening!

Hi everyone! We received a shipment of the Score-Pal Mat today and also more Score-Pals. You can call the store if you need more info regarding the mat.

Easy layout

Hi everyone! I worked on a layout the other day which turned out to be quite easy and very fast. Although there is no journaling, that can be added to the layout later.I was having such a hard time taking a photo of this because I kept getting a reflection on the photo as you can see. Dies used were all Sizzix. The phrase is on the same deco strip that I made another card using the words "just a note". Ok, I thought I could link it here but I can't figure it out.
Have a great evening!
