New Sizzix and long post

Hi everyone! These just arrived at the store today. All from Sizzix and brand new dies except a few. The long awaited gingerbread house bag die is finally back in stock. The new gingerbread man die will look great used together with that die. Hope you get a chance to stop by the store to see all the new dies. Don't forget, Sizzix dies are all at 20% off. Here's a new box that I made using the Sizzix carry all box die. I used a new Martha Stewart punch called flower bed to decorate the bottom of the box. Sorry, I didn't center the border and I didn't want to take it off and redo it. Bird stamp is from Dandelion Designs and the word is embossed with a Hero Arts word stamp.This next card was made to show you the new Martha Stewart thank you punch that we just got in last week. This is one punch to have if you make a lot of thank you cards. You don't have to do any stamping, just punch the word thank you out. Very easy!This is a gift tag that you can make in a couple minutes. I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the snowflake and added a blue gemstone in the middle of the snowflake. And that's it.This last gift tag was made to use the rest of the flower bed border scrap from the carry all box. Another quick and easy gift tag that takes only a few minutes to make.Hope you're all having a great Monday!!!

Gingerbread man tag holder

Hi everyone! Here's a quick and fast project for you. This is last years Sizzix gingerbread man die. We have a lot of gingerbread man dies coming in a shipment the first week of December along with a bunch of new dies. For this project, I cut the tag out using the Ellison Prestige machine in the store. If you would like to have some tags cut out for you, just purchase the paper and Cliff will cut it for you. I added some large mint candy canes in the pocket but you can also put a package of stamps or gift card or treats. Edit: There is a minimum purchase of 20 sheets of paper to have this tag cut. You may have to leave it and come back to pick it up if the store is busy at the time of purchase. Thanks for understanding!
Hope you're having a great Wednesday and tomorrow is turkey day!!! The store will be closed for Thanksgiving and we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A little late and a new CC Designs card

Hi everyone! I'm a little slow in posting this pop-up card that we did for a make & take a couple weeks ago. This is the snowman pop-up die card that we made. The snowflakes and Merry Christmas phrase are both Sizzlit sets. Here's the snowman. He pops up when you open the card.
Last week we had Jodie doing a make & take with copic markers. I took home the stamped image and colored it following her instructions. I need a lot of practice. The picture might be a little off since I took it kind of close up. Here's a card that I made yesterday using one of the new stamps from CC Designs that we just got in the store. I used the new Cuttlebug embossing folder called candy cane stripes to make the background for the card.The bench is a separate stamp from CC Designs. We also have a fence stamp.
The snowflake is from an old MS punch that I bought last year.
Hope you're having a great Thursday! See you soon!

New Sizzix bag die and new stamp line

Hi everyone! This is my 2nd post today. I wanted to show you one of the new Sizzix XL dies that we received in the store over the weekend since it is on sale too. This die is called bag with handles. It's actually quite big and can hold a lot of stuff in it. We also got in C.C. Designs stamps and since I already had this stamp, I decided to make some samples using it. I don't really know how to color with copics so this is one of the ones I rescued from the trash. The grass is actually a MS border punch called icicles. There are a few left in the store and on sale this week. This is a side view of the bag. See how big it is???This last photo is a card I made last night while playing with this new scallop border punch from EK Success. The background of the card is a stamp from Hero Arts called friend definition stamp and the word stamp is a clear stamp set called occasions.
Don't forget the sale ends tomorrow. Have a great Tuesday!!!

Another punch shipment

Hi everyone! We received another shipment of punches from EK Success. If you were waiting for that large scallop embossed border punch, it is in now. Sorry, no holds since the sale is still on until tomorrow - Wednesday, Veteran's Day. We also received stamps from C.C. Designs. These stamps are really cute! I hope you've been able to see the pictures. Sorry but, they have been taken with a phone camera.Forgot about this funky little scissors at the bottom of the photo but it is really sharp.
Have a great Tuesday and holiday tomorrow!!!
