  • or any other special requests-i do what i can but these don't always get fulfilled.



new product this week

we have tons of new glitter papers and transparencies from best creations. these papers will definitely get you in the mood for spring. or if you need to scrap those birthday pictures there is some new paper for that.
the fair is here. ok just paper that will help you scrap those pictures from the state fair. maybe you need something for a blue ribbon winning prize.

creative cafe feb. 25th & 28th

a few cards this week. could be good for any occasion. come in from 1-3 on wednesday or anytime saturday and make these two cards with envelopes for $4.

i made a mistake...

sometimes things slip my mind. it was brought to my attention that one of the best things about the retreat was forgotten. i forgot to apply the credit that i usually do to people's tickets. so if you were at the retreat, the next time you come in you will have credit on your account.

again, i am sorry if this caused you any problems.

my sweethearts

check out the picture below to see the brad heart detail zoomed in.

just a reminder in case you missed it: we have some super cute valentine's paper from heidi grace. i made two layouts and couldn't stop. it's kind of funky and every layout and card comes out looking awesome. these two layouts i did are almost completely heidi grace. "my sweethearts" came from her rose covered letters. all the papers and even the cool glittered hearts. come in and get some to scrapbook your valentines or just people you love!

are you an everyday gourmet chef?

if so we have the perfect line for you. this line is so great because the stickers range from breakfast in bed to the 30 minute meal. The colors are great for those older cooking photos.

lil davis designs has come out with a cute baby line. i love the pastel colors. the baby animals are super cute as well.
it could also work for zoo trips if you are looking for something different for those zoo picturs.

creative cafe february 4-7th

i've decided that layouts tend to be the most successful creative cafe projects. knowing this, i've been trying to create layouts that can also be changed. i want you to be able to make it for a boy or girl for christmas or halloween if you choose. with this layout my idea was to make the title easily changed. because of our wonderful die cutting machine your layout can be goofy or lovely or for sisters or your husband...anything you choose i can cut out for you and make your layout your own. come in from 1-3 on wednesday or anytime saturday and make this layout for $5.

design studio class

jennifer will be teaching this class. i know there are several of you out there that have the software or maybe want the software, but are not sure what all it can do. jennifer will take you through the many possibilities this program has to offer. if you have the program on a laptop and can bring it to class that would be great. if not we will partner you up with some one who has it. you will get a handout with the most common questions for you to take other notes on as well.
here is what the program looks like on your screen.
one of the many things you can do is weld letters. this is probably the most common use of the program.
hope to see you there.
