We are currently sold out of the Letterpress.  The next shipment isn't expected to arrive until March 20th.  Since this is such a popular item, we recommend pre-ordering.  This way, you'll be first in line to get a Letterpress machine once they're back in stock.  Happy Crafting.

CHA 2010

Jorjana is off to CHA in Los Angeles this week.  She's checking out all the amazing new products and  hunting for unbelievable steals to bring back for all our customers.  I wish I could be there too, but three children ages 7 and under keep me at home. 

Of all the products I've been able to sneak a peek at online, I'm most excited about My Mind's Eye's new Lush line.  I adore anything black and cream.  This line also comes in red, brown, aqua, pink, and green.  I can't wait until we get it in stock.  What products are you excited about?

Steal of the Week

I am so excited about QuicKutz new letter press machine.  I have visions of beautiful hand pressed cards and invitations dancing in my head.  This week you can get this fabulous new product and all the accessories you need to get started for at a great price. Happy Crafting.

January Cards

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.  I've had sick kids all week long so I haven't spent much time near the computer.  Here are my cards for this month's card group.  I couldn't wait to make Valentine's cards with American Craft's fabulous new Valentine's line.  I adore the flair badges, they are so cute.  The paper combo packs are currently sold out, back in stock, click here to purchase.  We were only able to get a few more so get yours before they sell out for good.   You can find the embellishments here.  Happy crafting.

Birthday Hats

A couple of years ago I went to the store looking for cute party hats for my daughter's birthday party.  I was dismayed to discover that not only was the selection quite small, it was also quite unattractive.  Well, I was determined to have cute party hats so I bought an inexpensive package of ugly hats and took them home.  I then took one apart and made a template for the rest of the hats.  A little big of cute cardstock, ribbon, and glue later, and voila, darling party hats.  Since it was so easy to do the first time, it is now tradition for me to make party hats for my kids each year.

I think I want to make this year's hats out of Basic Grey's Urban Prairie papers.  On sale here.

Crystal, who said,

"Amazing prize! For 2010, I would really like to try working with a Big Bite. I've heard so much about it and I think it would be a great tool to add to my growing collection. I do have a Crop-A-Dile, but there are projects that I want to make that requires the Big Bite.

I made a post on my blog about this awesome giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

Hugs, Crystal"
