Congrats and another Tim Holtz idea!

Congratulations go to Lyn Ohlensehlen for winning the Ornament drawing! She got a gift certificate to spend at the store! Way to go Lyn!!

If you made an ornament for our tree, Thank You! If you would like to keep your ornament, please feel free to come and take it home with you!

And I know that the holidays are over, and we may not be at all interested in next year's holidays, but I just HAD to share this idea!! I saw it too late to share it (Tim only posted it on Christmas Eve!!) but we still have quite a few of these dies left so maybe you want to get one now before they are gone in preparation for next year!

If you want to see how to make this simple garland (you could also use it for cards!) go to Tim Holtz' blog post on how to make these, click here!

And if you own the paper rosette die, he has this great idea for making the rosettes in different sizes (and rosettes are useful for any season!):

Imaginisce tools back in!

The Imaginisce Petal Roller and the 3-D roses and flowers were immensely popular the first time we got them in! So we had to re-order!

Check out this video to see just how easy and FABULOUS these flowers are to work with!

And take a closer look at THIS fabulous card that Pinky made! It really shows how awesome these look on a layout, card or project!
(And there is some i-rock action on this card too!)

We have more of these in stock too! Got someone in the family that still needs a last-minute gift idea for you? Send them our way to pick these up! Before they are gone again!

We still had a couple of the Imaginisce i-rock tools left today, if you've been considering it. Another great gift idea for the scrapping buddy who has almost everything. It's a hot item! We keep selling out!

Don't forget, we will be open on Christmas Eve, 10am to 2pm! Enough time for that last minute shopping!

Movers and Shapers

Have you bought some of the Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers magnetic dies? There are many to choose from. We still have in stock the Keyhole magnetic dies, which allow you to put a keyhole in any of the shapes in Tim Holtz' Alterations line of dies.
What you may not know is that some of these movers and shapers dies need to have the magnetic base tray in order to function correctly.  Did you know we have a few of these trays still in stock?

There is still time to send your spouse or adult kids over to get you one of these for a last minute gift! Or give us a call to hold it for the next time you are in!

Did you know we will be open Friday, Christmas Eve from 10am till 2pm?  Send your family in for those last minute gifts you want!

Be safe!

Martha Stewart "Punch All Over the Page" punches IN STOCK!

HURRY! These will NOT last! They are the hottest thing going right now, and hard to find!
Get in and get them NOW! :)

This punch is made with a very strong magnet. When the "notched" corner of the punch top and base are lined up, it is strong enough to hold the punch in place ANYWHERE on the page! In the middle, 3 inches in... not restricted like other punches!

This is the layout I made using the punch (SHHHHH-I am not suppose to show this one yet! It is using the January The Story Matters Kit! Don't Tell! )I pop dotted the patterned paper I used behind the punch, so to give dimension!
Hurry in!! Many shapes to choose from!

Last minute shopping?

Are you worried that you aren't finished with your shopping? Got a few folks you still need to buy for? Maybe they aren't scrapbookers but you could consider some items at our store like:

We have many albums in stock right now. Some of them you can purchase 4x6 photo pages so that you can use them as photo albums instead of scrapbook albums. This could be the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list!

We always have gift certificates, available in any amount you choose! We would also be quite willing to help you shop for the perfect gift.

Do you have little kids on your list? We have American Girls stickers and craft items, perfect for stocking stuffers as well!  Pick up a package or two of Sticko stickers for those kiddie stockings, we have all sorts of themes!

Are you still working on handmade gifts for the special people in your life, but find it difficult to get them finished? Maybe you need to get away from the distractions at home and come to our Cropaganza on friday night! This friday is the last Cropaganza of the year, your last chance to get some serious crafting done. It's only $5 and you get a drink/snacks and 15% off anything you purchase that night. Call today to reserve your spot!

Think OUTSIDE the Box!

Isn't this lovely!  What is this you ask?  It is one of Tim Holtz Configurations boxes that we carry, but this artist came up with an idea OUTSIDE the box!  That's right, instead of putting all the little boxes inside the main box they came in, she attached them all outside, after decorating them.  Imagine putting your own family photo in the main box and decorating it with keepsakes of your family, your kid's school year or your latest family vacation?
The artist is Laura and her blog is The Paper Trail. 

Here are a few other examples that she did with boxes from the Configurations. I especially like these little ornament ideas with single boxes!
We still have Configurations boxes available! You still have time if you are thinking about using them for holiday decorations or gifts! Come in now to get yours!

Linda Cain, who has taught classes at Scrapaganza, has this beautiful mini-book in the magazine. I just love this, some of my favorite colors. Just stunning!  Congratulations Linda!

New We R Memory Keepers!

I know, right! Valentine's stuff already!  This is the new line from We R Memory Keepers, called Be My Valentine. GORGEOUS papers!  You really must check out the sheet of white stitched paper, it says "true love" in stitching!  The die cut sheets are adorable. There are many papers in this line suitable for non-valentine layouts or paper crafts, so don't dismiss this line if you aren't into Valentine's Day. The stamps are ADORABLE and the tags too! I really like the white flocked paper "lace". It looks like stems perhaps... and I think would look cute on Christmas layouts as well (no rules you can't use embellishments with other lines of paper!)

Just to show you that it doesn't have to be all about the valentines, here's a layout from Design Diva Michele using this line for a page that has nothing to do with valentines!
Happy Shopping!
