Good afternoon,

I've been told that the new Lily/Poinsettia punch from McGill should be in on Friday.  We'll be having demos with it from 10:30-2:30 on Sat.  I sent out an email from the store with all of the info, but I must have bad computer karma as a lot of them bounced back.  I am now resending directly from the server, so for those of you who get it twice, I humbly apologize ;-)

Have a great day,

Good morning...

Hi everyone,

I've been a little remiss in keeping up with my Blog.  I've spent so much time preparing samples and unpacking boxes.  I managed to make a few cards with the new Stampendous Christmas stamps.  They are very quick to make as I've used Best Creations papers in the background so there is less to do.  At Christmas, when time seems to be at a premium, fast is good.  I've also made a card with another of our new releases that is not even in the store yet...the fat cat in a basket of yarn.  The poinsettias are separate so they can be for Christmas but the basket can be for any occasion.

We also received the Christmas line of My Little Yellow Bicycle and the papers are so cute!  I've included some of the samples.  Louise will be doing classes with the Advent calendar as well as the Envelope book.

Have a great weekend,

Good afternoon everyone,

It seems that all I'm doing is making samples and cutting paper.  The orders are coming in and being put out as quickly as I can.

We still have a few spaces left in the Christmas Belles class this Sunday, from 10-12.  I've included the photos, but once you see them I'm sure you'll agree that they are Très "Belles"!

Hve a great day!

Good day

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to put something of interest up each day, but you know how that goes.  It's been so busy, with all of the new stock having to be put out and the samples being made for either classes or the Toronto show. 

There have been several people who have expressed interest in going to the Creativ Festival in Toronto and would like to cut costs by sharing a ride.  I've suggested if you are interested, just give me a call so I can try to organize it.  I'd love to see some familiar faces there and the Make 'n Takes look great, even if I do say so myself! ;-)  The number here is:  514-697-1184

I've included a card that I've made with our new O' Christmas Tree plate which will be one of the Make 'n Takes.

Have a great day,

Hi everyone,

I just recieved the new Spellbinders and they are BEAUTIFUL!  They are the Heirloom Ornament, Jack 'O Lantern, Lacey Circles, Lacey Squares, Beaded Squares, Beaded Circles, and Nested Hearts.  We also received the Scor-Buddy which is the smaller version of the Scor-Pal and great for class.

I am almost finished the samples for the Make n Takes that we will be doing in Toronto.  I'll send the new ones in the next day or so.  They are using our new plates.  I hope that some of you can join us for the Creativ Show in Toronto, which is on Oct. 22, (my birthday ;-) until Oct. 24.

It was brought to my attention that there was a typo in the Xmas French Wording plate 4.  If any of you have purchased it or would like to, I have the correction being manufactured right now and will replace the phrase as soon as it comes in.  I was taught to read everything backwards when checking the spelling...hmmm.  Next time I should take my own advice!

Have a great afternoon,

Chilly, eh?

Good afternoon everyone,

We have just stocked the shelves with Penny black stamps and they are SOOO beautiful as well as a lot of Hero Arts acrylic ones. We also got in wood veneer paper which can be stamped, Cuttlebugged or depending on the thickness, printed.  I've only made 1 card so far, but I love the natural look and it's also great for those pesky guy cards.

Have a great holiday weekend,

First time without Louise as my parachute!

We are preparing for a show in Toronto in October and have made several samples for our Make n Takes with our new stamps.  I've included a few for you to have a look at.

I hope you enjoy them.

Penny Black also arrived today so we are once again, under a pile!

Have a great holiday,

First of many...

Good morning everyone. 

As I'm a newbie at this, please be patient.  Lousie is my blogging angel, helping me to get started.

Last Fri. we started to receive our orders that we placed at the CHA.  We received Hero Arts and Best Creations glitter paper and today we are going to receive our new acrylic stamps.  I'm giving you a sneak preview as they are not even bagged yet.

We have many new classes for the Fall, with new ones being added as we speak.  I think you will be impressed with the creativity!

Have a great day,
