Hi everyone

We just got back from a show in Boston with tons of new ideas for classes and great new products.  There are so many new techniques and spins on old ones.  Fran, Louise and I took so many classes which you will see in the next few months as there are just so many days in a month, and the products are not all ready to be shipped.  In this blog I'll include a lot of the new samples as well as a few classes that are already on the calendar.  The classes just keep on getting better.

We still have a few places left on Fri. Apr. 29 and Sun. May 1 for Penny Black.  Also, if you want to place any order with Penny Black, you will receive 20% if you pre-pay.  This offer will be good for about 1 more week.

Have a great rest of the afternoon and brace yourself for the last gasp of winter.

Hi everyone,

We finally have the samples for the Penny Black workshop given by Elizabeth Allan and they are adorable!  You will get a pro to explain to you how to get a great watercolor effect from your Tombow markers as well as other great background and blending techniques.  Elizabeth has been asked to be a guest on the Tombow Marker blog.  The Saturday classes are almost full but there is still room and also on Fri. and Sun.  If you pre-order and pre-pay for any of the Penny Black stamps used or any at all, you will get a 20% discount.

Louise, Fran and I are off to Boston for a show and will come back with lots of great ideas and products to order.

Have a great evening,

Good soggy afternoon...

Hi everyone,

Can you believe this weather?  It's treacherous out there!  It would be nice if the city at least put down sand on the sidewalks.  Now I can see the value of Yak Trax.

We've just recieved out first shipment from Spellbinders.  We have the Parisian Accents, Parisian Motifs, Floral Doily Accents, Fleur de Lis Accents, Fleur de Lis Motif.  We also received Heartfelt Creations, both dies and corresponding stamps.  Fran has a class tomorrow using them.  We also recieved new embossing folders from Lifestyle Crafts/the old Quick Kutz.  They have some interesting folders, and I especially like the one that Fran is using in her class tomorrow called Diamonds and Dots.  It's very versatile and can work for both men and women as it is not too Frou Frou!

I've made 2 cards using the Black Magic technique.  The hummingbird is a stamp/die from Hearfelt Creations so for those of you who do not like to cut, you just have to crank your Cuttlebug!

I will be sending out the email for Elizabeth Allan's classes within the week as I just received her samples today...VERY CUTE!!!  Stay tuned...

Enjoy your weekend and wear your Yak Trax,

Hi everyone,

The weather just can't seem to make up its mind.  I guess that's March for you!

We have several new and wonderful classes that have just been posted to the website.  I've included some of the photos here, for you to look at.  A lot of great new ideas and products have been used to make these spectacular cards.  I hope you enjoy them.

Have a great day,
