What a fantastic summer day. This is how I would like summer to be, warm, not hot, with no humidity.
We just got back from the CHA with lots of new ideas for classes. As usual we wanted to see Penny Black and Impression Obsession first. Penny Black had wonderful samples and we got to see Elizabeth Allen's smiling face again. She is just the warmest person! We placed an order with them and can't wait until it arrives so we can get started on Christmas classes...Ouch!
We then went to Impression Obsession and were once again wowed by their amazing samples and of course placed an order with Mitra.
We did a lot of Make 'n Takes which are always fun, and will be doing them in the store in the Fall.
Spellbinders has a lot of new dies, but we'll have to wait for them to be released...so we have to be patient..."Are they in yet?" ;-)
Sizzix has some very creative new 3D dies and we'll be having classes with them, once we get them. We have so many ideas...so little time. We spent time chatting with Karen Burniston. What an amazing person. She is so inventive. It takes a lot of precise measurements to get all of the pieces to function well in her 3D Pop-Ups. Here are some samples of other dies.
Heartfelt Creations have some wonderful stamps that match their dies and they made some beautiful cards and boxes with them.
I guess that's it for now. I'll try to keep you posted as products come in. If there is anything you would like to order, just give me the code and I can put it in the next order that I place. You can look at any of the sites mentioned above, and I can get those products as well. If you pay in advance, I will give you 20%.
Have a wonderful weekend.
