Good News!!

I just sent out this e-mail!!!
I was sitting here thinking about my holidays and realized how fortunate I've been this holiday season to have travelled and spent the holidays with friends and family that I don't usually see this busy time of year.
Although it was very relaxing,
I realize that the one thing I missed was........
I'm sure many of you did as well. So............
on Sunday, January 2nd,2011 ONLY
from noon-5:00pm
**instead of double stamps**
please join us for our first ever New Years Boxing Day,
where once again you can save
30% off all in stock mechandise
(No Loyalty cards will be stamped on these days.In-store shopping only, in-stock items only - no special orders,not applicable on pre-ordered items.Excludes the Big Shot, the Vagabond and the Grand Calibur.)
ENJOY, (I know I will)

New items in liquidation

Hi All,
I am sorry to have been missing for so long. I have been travelling and visiting with family and friends. I hope that you all had a very merry christmas and that the scrapbooking santa was very generous to you.
On my return to the store today I decided it was time to retire some more items to the clearance section. These items include all the halloween items as well as many more sizzix dies. I may even add more tomorrow. You see we are counting our inventory and needless to say I'd rather sell it then count it. Also don't forget about our double stamp days!
Hoping to see all of you tomorrow (lol)!
Since that is highly unlikely, I will the wish you all a very happy and healthy 2011.
See you next year!!!

it's been a while

Hi everyone,

sorry that I haven't posted lately but I have been away in Florida (no, not soaking up the sun), sitting in classes trying to learn even more about the wonderful products we all like to play with.
I took some great classes ( and a few not so great). Alot of these were stamping classes, for those who know me, I need all the help I can get. I really enjoyed creating the cards that I was taught and hope to be able to share this knowledge with you all. Also I got top take another fantastic class with Tim Holtz. His class featured the idea-ology line. All I can say is WOW. Next time you're by the store ask me to show you what I made.
While I was gone stock kept coming in. Today I have chosen to tell you about the new Dear Lizzy christmas line. Above is a picture of 3 cards made by our very own Melanie Louette. In case you didn't know, she is on the American Crafts Design Team and I found these on her blog. I loved them and wanted to share. Enjoy
