Thanks for all your positive comments about our new look for the website and blog. I know you may be frustrated with the “missing links” and missing info on some of the pages (like What’s New), but please bear with us. When the webmaster is working on the site I cannot update content and when I am updating he can’t insert the right links!!!! I promise it will all be there soon. And of course I would choose to update the What’s New page during the busiest time of the year for product launches! I have tons of photos to show you so keep checking back with us.
Recipe Box Classes
This Saturday (July 31 from 10am to 1pm), we are having a very fun class; it’s the first in a series of Christmas Gift Classes that will be offered now through the holiday season. My niece Marilee is a new bride and she keeps asking me for recipes that my Mother prepared for her when she was a little girl. I decided to construct a recipe box (from one sheet of 8½” x 11” cardstock) and decorate it with the wonderful fruit die cuts from Spellbinders. These are Limited Edition dies so if you like them be sure to get yours now. They quit making them in may so when the available supply sells out, they are gone. I have them all in stock right now so just email me to reserve yours today.
Inside the recipe box are 9 recipe divider cards made with coordinating papers and the Recipe set from Just Rite Stampers. This set fits the 1 3/16” round stamper so it is just the right size for making the toppers for the cards. I hope you will join us for the class. Please email me to reserve your spot!
Fruit-Themed Cards Class
If you love the box, but don’t have a need for a recipe file, join us Saturday (July 31from 2 to 4pm) afternoon and make a set of 4 fruit-themed cards that coordinate with the recipe box. We will use stamps from Hero Arts and My Favorite Things plus Spellbinders die cuts these really cute cards. See the basket full of strawberries? It is made with real wood paper from Creative Imaginations. The Happy Summer card uses distress inks to color the fruit while Copic Markers are used on the “kindness” card. Fun, festive and informative – you always learn something new in our classes!
Lots of new stuff has already arrived in the store including the Christmas release from Just Rite Stampers and cute new stamps and dies from The Cat’s Pajamas. I also have the new Hero Arts holiday catalog which is packed with great new stamps and embellishments. Remember that a lot of merchandise is released now but won’t be shipped until late summer or early fall. If you want something just let me know; remember when you order from me I pay the freight!
