Way to go Deputy Hawes...

If you were here on Monday night, you know what a great detective we have in house. Our very own, Sherri, proved herself quite helpful as the police were swarming the building. She went right outside and asked one of the officers "is there something going on that we should know about"? Of course his response was "Yes, get back in the building, lock the doors, and don't let anyone in". As she turned to head back in the building she realized she was locked out! Thank goodness Allison was brave enough to open the door and let her back in. As it turned out, the bank right behind our store had been robbed at gunpoint and the police and their dogs were out looking for him. At this point they haven't caught the suspect yet...perhaps they need to sign Sherri up on the police force!!!!

Happy New Year!!

Just wanted to get a head start on wishing everyone a Happy New Year!! Don't forget to come to the store for our specials...20% off albums and refills, 30% off bags and totes, 40% off all cardstock. We also have a huge half off table with new things

Do we have Tim Holtz addicts out there?

If you know me at all, you know I love all things Tim Holtz. I was lucky enough to help him at CKU this summer and I haven't been the same since. I convinced Mary to order a bunch of his product. Well right now he is doing his annual 12 Days of Christmas tags. He shows you step by step how to make them and he uses tons of techniques and products. Some of the products are hard to find local, so once again I have convinced Mary to order the stuff he is using. Keep your fingers crossed because we might be getting the Stampers Anonymous stamps too. Please show your support and come in and get your supplies.This tag is my version of day one. In case you don't know it. Tim's blog is

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

...Just the new layout I did. Graphic 45 has a fabulous Christmas line out that looks very vintage. I love it! I made this layout from a couple of sheets from the line and put it on a solid piece of cardstock. You can't tell in the picture, but the strip of stamps is covered in the new Rock Candy stickles and it makes it look even more vintage, if that is possible. Come into the store to check out this layout and several others I have been working on.

Our whirlwind weekend at CKC...

What a blast we had.
Our weekend consisted of lots of hard work with plenty of time for laughing and acting silly (as you can see by the pictures). We had a great booth and met tons of new customers and also saw many of our faithful store customers. Lee did demos for two days straight and also taught a class using the Just Rite Stampers. We also set up at the crop both nights so we were very busy. Kim was so tired she decided to take a nap on the floor....we really worked her too hard I guess. As everyone else strolled around the Opryland Hotel, our feet hurt so bad we could only make it to the restaurant. We did manage to get in a few laughs though as Lee tried on a pink and sassy cowgirl hat. I wish you could see in the picture, but that hat actually had blinking lights on it.

We Missed You!!

In case you did not make it to CKC in Nashville this last weekend you really missed a good time. It was so fun to see so many of our customers there. They all were really excited to see us too. I loved showing so many people the Just Rite Stamps. Most people had not seen it before and several people had it but did not know what to do with it. I taught a class on Friday night and the girls really loved the cards and the box made with the ScorPal. Kim Garner from Rusty Pickle came in the store on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon to teach two super cool mini albums. In case you could not make it Mary bought some extra kits so we can have another class. Thanks to everyone for making our CKC debut such a success!!

Back by Popular Demand

Hello Girls!

Our guest teacher this spring, Amie Igou, has planned three more classes in her popular Product 2 Project Park for this fall. Classes will start in September and go through November. The class structure has changed slightly but the cost is the same - $12.00 per class or bundle all three for $30.00.

The lineup includes Creative Titles, Jump Start your Journaling, and Rubons to the Rescue. This is another round of classes based on sketches; you will also complete two challenges in class. The format is slightly different in that you need to bring photos to each class, enough for two challenges. They can be originals as they are for inspiration only. You will leave class with three sketches from Amie's projects, a very detailed handout on the subject and two challenges completed in class.

Creative Titles will concentrate on creating titles, title placement for most impact, and where to find creative title. Titles can really make a big impact and help support the theme of your photo's. Learn to use creative phrases instead of citing the obvious! For instance, working on a new driver? I am, two in fact. One niece will get her license in a few weeks and for her birthday we bought her a custom license plate. The other niece just earned her driver's' permit today and she sill be the first one to drive even though her brother is two years older. I'm working on both layouts and one will be titled "Designs on Driving" and the other one will be "Designated Driver".

Jump Start Your Journaling by getting away from just the who, what, where and when. Grab hold and take your journaling to the next level using stamps, premade products like journaling spots and cards, and a host of other products. You will leave with a handout where you'll find lots of different journaling prompts to get your mojo moving!

Rubons to the Rescue will have you mixing, coloring and decorating them to create one of a kind designs. They aren't all created equally and you'll get a run down on the easiest to use. Come and see how to use them on layouts, cards and photos!

This is going to be a fun, interactive class lineup! Don't miss out on the fun, call and reserve your spot now!!

It's Done, Finally!!

Here it is finally!! I have been working on a pet board book that were are making into a kit and here it is. It using some great Cloud 9 dog paper. I am teaching the class on Saturday August 29 at 10. The cost is $19.50. After the class we will have the kits available to purchase. If you come to class please bring basic supplies - trimmer, scissors, adhesive - wet and dry, glue dots, brayer, craft knife with cutting mat, apron lace, leave it to weaver, and effervescence border punch, 1/2 circle punch, 1/2 inch dog paw punch, 1 1/4 square punch, chipboard corner rounder, brown ink and ink applicator, espresso alcohol ink and applicator, and a crop a dile.
