Build a Bear TI folders

Hi everyone! Yesterday I made 2 cards using the 2 Build a Bear TI folder sets that we just got in from Sizzix. And don't forget that all the TI folders are 30% off the retail price and today is the last day of the sale. This card was made from the Beary Christmas set. I layered all the embossed pieces of the bear folder. It took me a little longer than usual to cut all the pieces out. I went with all the colors on the BAB logo to make the card look fun and bright and Christmasy.
This 2nd card is from the Beary Birthday set but the bear is another die. It is an older Sizzix die called bear #3. I used this bear since the BAB dies have not shipped yet and I needed a bear. We still have some of these bear dies in the store. I also tilted his head on this card.
Don't forget about our make & take this Saturday and bring your tool kit. Have a wonderful humpday!!!

This Saturday's make & take

Hi everyone! This Saturday, October 31st, we will be having a make & take from 10-12 pm. We will be making a pop-up snowman card. It is a bit more difficult so please allow some time. We also have only a limited amount of kits so it will be on a first come, first serve. Please be sure to bring with you a pair of scissors, 2 way tape, roller tape adhesive (ex-Tombow), 2 way glue or mono liquid glue or zip dry, and your glasses. Sorry but this time, the papers do not have the sticky on them and that is why you need all the different glues. Hope to see you on Saturday!!!

New Sizzix dies and a new punch

Hi everyone! We received a partial shipment of new dies from Sizzix today. We also got in the 2 new Build a Bear textured impressions folders. Remember that the TI folders are on sale this week. Here's a card that I made this past Saturday using the reindeer punch from EK Success. The border is a Spellbinders borderabilities die that only cuts the edge of your paper. It comes with a matching border die that cuts a full border out. This one is called doily flower.
Have a great evening and see you this weekend!

Hi everyone! Well, the 2nd shipment of punches arrived at the store yesterday (Saturday). I'll be posting a card that I made with the reindeer punch tomorrow.

And, starting Monday, October 26th through Wednesday, October 28th, all Hero Arts stamps, Spellbinders dies, and Sizzix and Cuttlebug embossing folders are 30% off the suggested retail price.

Gingerbread house bag and box and shipment of punches

Hi everyone! We jsut received a shipment of Tonic, EK Success and Martha Stewart punches. I personally like the cute reindeer punch. Call the store if there is a punch you were waiting for. We have another shipment of punches either tomorrow or Monday. Here is a Sizzix gingerbread house bag that I forgot to post on the blog. I made this a couple weeks ago. It was real easy to put together and the die comes with instructions. I decided to make it my favorite color which is pink instead of a brown cookie color. I used one of Jean's new holiday stamps for the tag.
Last weekend I played with the same die again and made it into a box to hold more treats. I put styrofoam at the bottom of the box to stick the candy canes in. It's a great centerpiece idea for a Christmas party.

Here's a photo of what the inside of the box looks like. There is quite a bit of space in it.And this last photo is of the make & take we had last week Saturday at the store. We did a pink mini album because October is breast cancer awareness month.I am taking a break this weekend but we will be having a make & take next weekend. I'll be posting here the date and time.
Have a great weekend and stay cool!

Sizzix candy cup die and make & take this Saturday

Hi everyone! Last Friday I made these candy cups from one of the new Sizzix XL dies that arrived at the store earlier in the week. The great thing about this die is that you can cut 2 different size candy cups. The pink Hello Kitty cup uses 6 panels and the red Christmas cup uses 5 panels. The stamp image on the red cup is a new holiday release from Dandelion Designs. Jean always comes out with some really cute stamp images.
These candy cups hold quite a bit of candy. I recommend using glue dots to hold the sides and bottoms together instead of 2 way tape. It seems like a stronger bond instead of the 2 way tape. Especially if you plan to fill it with candies.This is what the 2 different sized cups look like on the inside.
As you all know, October is breast cancer awareness month and we will be doing a cute pink Sizzix make & take this Saturday, October 17th from 10-12 pm. As always, please bring your scissors and or tool kit with you. It helps to speed up the waiting time.
Have a great Tuesday!!!

New Sizzix gift card holder die

Hi everyone! This is one of the new Sizzix dies that we just received on Monday. You can now die cut gift card holders to give as gifts. Very simple die and instructions come in the package. I decided to get away from the usual Halloween colors and went with some pinks and lots of glitter. The haunted house is a MS punch that we carry in the store. Scallop oval circles are nesties and the bat is a stamp from Hero Arts. Sizzix TI folder is called winter set. This is the inside of the card and you just need to use 2 way tape to stick down the tabs.
So quick and easy to make a bunch of these to give out as gifts.
Hope you're having a great Wednesday and don't forget about Jean's make & take this Saturday. She will be using stamps from her new Christmas release. See you soon!

Imaginisce shipment

Hi everyone! We received another shipment of Imaginisce Halloween paper and another cute girly line of paper. We now carry the Glue Glider Pro. Since Kokuyo went out of business, I've been looking for an adhesive that sticks well. This one really sticks!!! And, the roll of adhesive goes a long way.
Have a great Friday and weekend!
