Memo Pad

Here is a cute way to personalize your notes. Choose stamps and inks in your favorite styles and colors & stamps on a white paper cube. It's a simple yet adorable project!!

Alcohol Inks

I love the way Alcohol inks look & I love to play with them. Tim Holtz the creator of many cool stamping products recently came out with tin organizers for his fun products. I was very happy to discover that the Alcohol Inks fit into the Paint Dabber Case!! Take a look at the case decorated with Alcohol inks!

Feb. Card Chaos

Here is a look @ 3 of the cards for the Tuesday, Feb 19th & 26th Cards Chaos classes. We will keep you posted when we finish the rest of them!!

Crafty Clipboards

Once I saw these clipboards I knew I had to share them with you!! These unfinished wood clipboards come in 12x12 & 8.5x11. They could be decorated with papers and photos to be used as a unique home decor piece. I like the idea of brightening up your work station with a clipboard in your favorite scrapbooking papers and rubons!! Using favorite papers and rub-ons is what I did with these boards. I used my favorite paper line October Afternoon and rub-ons from Scenic Route!!

Home Decor Ideas

If your in the mood to re-decorate a room, or just need one item to finish a room- make sure to stop in for great ideas. We have "color themed displays" set up in the store. Does your living room have reds in it? Check out the red room. More of a neutral person...they have a great tan/nautical display. This department is constantly changing and new items are coming in daily. So, make sure to stop in soon and come back often. Here's a few pictures I took of the rooms:

Adorable Moss Letters!

This is probably the cutest thing I've ever seen! Jacquelyn in the floral department created these after seeing a picture in a magazine- they're perfect for weddings, or to decorate a room in your house. I love them, and they're super easy (check back soon for a project sheet.) If you stop in the store, make sure to take a closer look at them (they're by the front door.)
