Good morning!

Hi everyone,

I just finished unpacking all of the Cover-a-Card stamps from Impression Obsession.  They look amazing.  Mary will be "demoing" (looks strange) from 10-2pm, creating combined backgrounds, using the new rocker to get an even impression every time.  There seems to be no combination that looks bad.  There will be a special on them as well.

We are also celebrating Pointe-Claire's 100 anniversary.  There will be festivities in the village all day as well as in the park behind.  We will be having a giant garage sale with lots of paper, punches, stamps, etc.

We are also registering people for the MercArt Metal art classes.  We have the samples here in the store and will be sending out an email in a day or two.  Space is limited so reserve early.  Here are some of the samples:

Come down and join in the fun.

See you there!

Hi Everyone

What a wonderful day we had yesterday with Nathalie from Magenta!  She is so talented, organized and relaxed.  We all had a fantastic day, and learned many new techniques.  Her sample boards were amazing!  I'd love to have all of them hanging in the store.  We even had some great Christmas card ideas.  I love their chipboard and the cork gives such a rich texture with the alcohol inks. 

We finally have all of the samples mounted for the metal art class that Magdalena, from MercArt is giving in September.  We are starting to register people, and space is limited.  Come in and have a look at the samples! 

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend,

Good afternoon to all,

We've decided to have a super sale on stamps this Saturday, August 6th. 10-5pm.  All of the stamps in the store will be 50%!!!
We have just gotten back from the CHA and would like to make room for the new stamps which should be arriving in the next few weeks.

Have a wonderful afternoon,

Hello everyone!

Once again, it's been far too long!  I've been so busy, some good things, some not so much, like renovations at home, but there are a lot of great products and ideas which we saw at the CHA which I'd like to share with you.  So many things, so little time.

We saw wonderful new dies from Spellbinders, paper from Kaisercraft, stamps from Impression Obsession and Penny Black and new stencils from Dreamweaver, just to name a few.  We will be having classes on all of these in the near future.  Some of the products will only be released in the next month or two.

The classes from Magenta are all but full.  There are still 2 spots remaining in class #2 on Sat. aug. 13th.  We are looking forward to learning the new techniques from Nathalie.  We've been in business about the same amount of time...20ish years!  My how time

I'm including some samples of the stamps that I will be receiving from Impression Obsession this week.  You use them with a rocker handle which makes stamping a whole lot easier once you master the simple rolling technique.  It is never easy to stamp a large stamp and get and even image, but the rocker stamp makes perfect images just about every time.  I was impressed.  You can multi-layer stamps and colours for a wonderful pattern.  We will be giving classes using this technique and likely doing a demo as well.  It's hard to go wrong.

We are also doing the Kaisercraft 9 Drawer box at the end of this month, Sun Aug. 28th 10-12:30.   so I am including an image of it as well.

Have a wonderful summer day!
