TGIF! Hope it's been a great week for you... winding down to the weekend & we're looking forward to a fun evening scrapbooking together at the crop tonight! :) New product orders are coming in fast & furious at the wholesalers right now - and they like to combine shipping to help save us some $$ (much appreciated!) so I expect that I'll start receiving shipping notifications for lines like Simple Stories, Bo Bunny, Kaisercraft, Photo Play... and Graphic 45 is due to the wholesalers early next week too! Looks like the first week of March is going to be madness around here!! :) We are here today from 10am until 4pm. Stop by & say HI!! Cheers! :D

Good Thursday morning to you! Looking forward to class today with lots of great ladies... coming to class is a great way to help find your mojo again! ;) Be sure to check out the new product when you're here and also the samples up on the class wall. Another good way to find that mojo again is to play along with our monthly sketch challenges. You'll find that album with the sketches under the PHOTO tab on our Facebook page. We're here today from 10am until 4pm! Cheers! :D

Another shipment has arrived with more restocked, special orders & a bit more new product! Be aware that with Basic Grey no longer doing paper crafting, that means our supplier for magnets for the mini albums is no more. I will keep sourcing out another supplier but they're going to be a hard act to follow! There is one last set of Crazy Bird stamps & dies in the store. This is their final call. Make sure you pick yours up before they're gone! Acrylic plastic sheets are back in stock, as well as the snow markers. I also finally found a WHITE PEN that works amazingly well. It's at the front counter! New product is right HERE! :)
Happy Wednesday to you! Boy, the common theme these days seems to be that the February funk has got everyone down & you're all having a hard time finding your crafting mojo! Why not make a plan to come join us next Friday night for our bi-monthly crop & come spend some time with some great ladies who encourage & help each other get those projects started or finished!! It's a great way to end your week & we always have tons of laughs! ;) And if you're looking for a dose of spring, the new Spring lines from Echo Park are adorable & a great way to inspire your creativity! We are here today from 10am until 4pm - see you soon! Cheers! :)

Yeah for the Postman! Not a lot of ~new~ product in this shipment, but tons of restocked stuff! The Heartfelt Creations Sugar Hollow paper pads, mini albums, inserts are all restocked. A bunch of special orders are in and people have been contacted if their product was in this shipment. I'll upload the few new things right away! :)
New Product can be seen right HERE!
It's another foggy Good Morning to you! I felt like we could have used a fog horn or two on the way to work this morning... ;) I'm expecting some stock boxes over the next week - I will keep you posted as they arrive. I also will be uploading the Owl mini album class later today - it's adorable! Be sure to keep checking in daily to see what's new & arrived! We're in the store today from 10am until 4pm.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and got completely spoiled as you all deserve! ;) How are you making out with your love challenges? Be sure to upload your projects as well!
I'm back today with my last Design Team project as I'm going to be taking a break from the blog for awhile. I've been with Karen since she started the Design Team so it's hard to take a step back but I'll still post as I'm able to on the Facebook page, just not on a regular basis! I've enjoyed getting to know you all and am thankful for all the comments and love on my projects that has been sent my way! It's always appreciated!!
So let's get on to the fun stuff! ;)
My project features Karen's great piece, Forever In Our Hearts. My son's dog, McTuff, passed away a couple of years ago and I thought he'd love this piece paired with a picture of his dog on a canvas. As a bonus for me, it made a lovely gift for his Birthday as well!!
I traced out the hearts on the sides of the piece as best I could then cut them out on gold cardstock so I could make them a different colour of glitter than the rest of the piece. Then, I sprayed the chipboard piece with a permanent spray adhesive then dumped Martha Stewart dark brown Glitter all over it! Then I sprayed the gold hearts I'd cut out and dumped gold Glitter all over that. I tapped off the excess and left them to dry. I adhered the patterned paper to the canvas piece then inked the edges of the paper & the canvas. Once everything was dried, I popped up the chipboard piece with foam tape and started to decorate with flowers.
I also used one of Karen's little wooden miniature hearts, distressed with ink, then touched up with Wink of Stella to give it that sparkle.
Look at how beautiful that glitter shines on her piece! As much as I hate the mess of glitter, I sure do love the sparkle & shine it adds to the chipboard!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed my project! Thanks again for checking it out and until next time -- Cheers! :)

We're back this month with a new theme,
Love and Valentine's Day!!
And Karen has some amazing new pieces in the store for you to check out. :)
My first DT submission this month is a Valentine's card. I used her
piece to accent the lovely cherub on the patterned paper.
I used the LuminArte medium to colour the chipboard, then doused it with a layer of Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. I added two more wooden pieces, the LOVE heart and the Just 4 U tag. I spritzed those with Tattered Angels and then once they were dry, I used my Wink of Stella Clear pen to add a bit of extra sparkle to the wood pieces! So cute!
I hope you find some inspiration this month from the blog to help you make your creations to share the love this month! <3
Cheers! Melissa :)
