April 14/10

So thing have been quite hectic around the store. With NSD prep going on and all the products arriving it's getting very busy. Zva Creative bling and pearls have been put out and they are just gorgeous!!!. Also recently we received more Impression Obsession stamps, Hero Arts , Whiff of Joy, Belles and Whistles and Hampton Art Footlong stamps. We received the newest issues of Scrapbook Cards, Scrapbook Trends and For the Home. I don't think I have ever mentioned here that these magazines have gone down in price.
Scrapbook Cards was $24.95 and now $14.95
Scrapbook Trends was $18.95 and now $12.95
For The Home Or Mini Albums was $22.95 now $13.95
These magazines have always been popular but people were hesitant because of the price, well at these new prices, they should fly. They are some of the best magazines on the market today.

Oh I almost forgot, we received a whole bunch of EK Success NEW border punches as well as a stack of Martha Stewart border and corner punches.
For those of you who love those little square alphabets, well we just got a whole stack of them fron Adorn-it. So many colors. People can't seem to buy just one!

For those of you who registered for National Scrapbook Day, don't forget the balance os due by April 20th,2010.

Look forward to seeing everyone soon.
