finally an update! i know, i've been bad...does it help if i said i was thinking of you??? i have been working on so much stuff that time seems to just run through my fingers!

Remember that survey we had? It was a small, just a few questions about stamping (prefered brands, inks and accessories). we pulled the winner and here she is! this is Kim K. and she was the lucky winner of our survey! Congrats Kim!

we are still going over the survey replies and have looked into several of the recommended companies. since so many people requested Hero Arts, we just had to bring in some of their adorable holiday stamps!!

here's the wood stamps:
and our display of clear stamps! hero arts came out with a bunch of mini stamps paired with some rhinestones. you can see them in the picture; they're the ones on the top row towards the right (in the red orange and green packaging). you can also see some of our new inkdinkado stamps on the left side! i love inka's clear stamps, they come out so well when you stamp them!

how much do you guys love prima flowers? TONS? ME TOO!! i swear, i put prima's on every single page i do! i can't resist them! we just got a bunch in and they are at a really good price too. come check um out!
i loooove new stuff! we have basic grey's 3 newest lines! eerie is on the left, indian summer in the middle and eskimo kisses on the right.
here i have images of my favorite papers from each line. first i must say that indian summer has to be my favorite line of paper of ALL TIME. i kid you not, this line is so beautiful that i know i dont have photos that would do it justice! the colors are great for fall but so timeless that you could you it for anything! who would have thought to use pink & purple with orange & brown for fall??? here's my favorite paper:
eskimo kisses is a very cute collection! with little houses and eskimo kids in a very rich holiday color combination. this line is double sided with most of the backsides having a generic flourish design so you can really use it for absolutely everything!

and we have eerie, basic grey's first halloween collection. when i first heard that basic grey was coming out with a halloween line, i practically passed out. i have always been a huge fan of basic grey and of halloween paper (i hoard both) and when i saw this line in person, i knew i was going to have to add it to my collection! this line is also double sided.

i have 2 classes this week. one is this friday the 18th and the second is on sunday the 20th.
friday's class is a scrapbook layout class where i'll be teaching distressing techniques, how to use the cricut, and stamping with acrylic stamps. i have the finished sample in store if you'd like to take a look. its using the new fall line from k&company:
sunday's class is a chipboard album. you know those fabulous word albums that we make? each page is a letter and when the album is closed it spells something out. out project will be using an "I [heart] YOU" album. [heart] symbolizes an actual heart shape which i dont have on my keyboard :) we will be using black and white papers and the student gets to choose a 3rd color to go in the album. my sample will be using black, white and teal. its going to be fabulous! i still have room in both of these classes.
i'll see you guys later!
