craving some bling?

In what was a very quick trip around the store, I assembled this assortment of all things shiny. I kept to  the silver tones in order to keep it simple, but this would have been just as awesome in any other shade.

Now I wouldn't use all of these at once, but if you're looking for new ways to add a bit of shine to a project, here are just a few to try.
  • Glittered cardstock by Creative Imaginations
  • Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze by Tattered Angels
  • Metallic StazOn
  • dew drops by The Robin's Nest
  • Designer Foils by Clearsnap
  • Crystals by Zva Creative
  • Stickles by Ranger
  • embossing powder by Martha Stewart
  • Sparkle Writer by Studio G
  • Embossing Powder by Judikins
  • Maya Road Vintage Trinkets
  • Microfine Glitter by Glamour Glitter
  • Art Glitter by Barabara Trombley
What's your favorite source of sparkle?

Hot Diggity Dog!

Look at all the fun Mickey mouse themed products that have arrived in the store from Queen and Co! Great for Disney vacation photos, but versatile for other applications too! Who doesn't love a classic Black, Yellow, Red combo? I'm especially loving those Mickey mouse ear shaped buttons!

Tattered Angels Sale!!!!

Do you love Tattered Angels products?  Then you will definitely want to make your way in to the store this weekend, because we've got a great sale on select Glimmer Mists, Glimmer Screens, stamps and other assorted products (including several Heidi Swapp co-branded products).  Natalie got a fantastic deal from Tattered Angels and is able to offer a selection of fun products at 50% off the regular retail price.   But hurry - some of these won't last long, and this special price is limited to this weekend only.

Not sure what to do with all the fun mists and screens?   Come join JJ for the Intro to Glimmer Mist class, which is being offered a second time due to popular demand.

Intro to Glimmer Mist

"Don't be intimidated by all those mists. Come learn application techniques, how to customize your embellishments, what surfaces with which you can use mists, and even how to unclog the sprayer! (We might get messy, so please don't wear a white shirt).

In this class students will complete a 12x12 layout incorporating different techniques with Glimmer Mist.  Students will also complete a set of tag sized swatches that can be saved for reference, or used on their personal projects.

Students will have the opportunity to customize their page by choosing from a selection of masks and colours, allowing for the possibility of creating a much more masculine page if desired."

The next class will be held Saturday June 4, 1:30-4:30. You will need a basic tool kit, adhesives, and an embossing heat gun if you have one.
Cost $35.00

Please contact the store if you have further questions, or to sign up.
