14 Days of Love 2011: Day 1

Day 1: Valentines Squished Ornaments - There is no better way to show someone how much you love them, than by making an ornament for them. A great gift for grandparents and one they will cherish for years to come. Or a great way to add a little Valentines decor to your home.Supplies:
- squished ornaments
- printed papers (for backing and matting photos)
-vinyl saying
-glue runner
-glossy accents
-giga circle punch (3")

1. Punch out circle out of backing paper.
2. Crop photo and mat on coordinating paper and use glue runner to adhere to the circle. If you choose not to use a photo you can apply a sticker to the circle or leave circle plain.
3. Place glossy accents on back side of ornament and place the photo circle or paper circle print side down on the glossy accents. Press evenly over the entire surface of paper to get out any air bubbles.
4. Decorate the front of the ornament with desired embellishments or vinyl.
5. Add ribbon to hang ornament.

We have had to "rush" order more fabric for this months blocks...TWICE.... Don't forget that if you didn't get in during the month of January it's not to late to start.

We also have extended the Incredible price cut on the Gypsy Sit Upon for the Month of Feb. It is normally $39.99 and we will have it on special for $19.97 all month. The product that we are featuring this month with the program is the 101 Basting Spray by Helmar.It normally $10.99 for 5.82 oz. and we will be running it at $5.00 a can while supplies last. Remember this price doesn't start until February 1st. We can't wait to start hearing from all of you on how you feel about this program...What you like...What we can "tweak" and if we should do a program like this again. Here is February's block of the month and you can purchase it online here.

February Classes

We have added some classes to the February calendar of events. One of the classes is a Kids Craft Class that we plan to offer each month. This month it is Valentine's theme so Nicole has created this lovely frame for the kids to recreate, for only $5. Another, one we added is a Saturday All day Scrap on February 5th. Mini Book Club will return in March. I believe the theme will be Birthday. Take a look at what we all offer here or here.
