Red, white and blue! Those are the colors you will see while working with Holly in this vintage American projects class on Friday, June 3 at 5:30pm. You will craft several items to include an embellished box, 4 cards and embellished tags, too. Lots of layers, fiber and patriotic fun!

 SPC Firecracker 611

Love the cherries behind George! 

Don't forget to bring adhesives (wet, dry and foam) and sanding block; an Antique Linen Distress Ink pad is needed, too! If you don't have all of these items, just come to class a little early and we'll help you find them.

Not signed up for this class, yet? Stop by the store or call to reserve your spot in this class before it fills up! See you soon!

Yowza!

Hello! So glad that you had time to drop'll be glad you did, too!

If you have ever stopped by the store, you've seen Memory Box products...the Color of the Month card sets, gorgeous stamps, papers, cards, and envelopes...lots of paper crafting goodness!

Would you believe they have even more in store for you?

Welome the new Memory Box Die Collection!

They are 100% steel dies made in the USA, compatible with most die cutting systems. They are everything we expect from Memory Box - wonderful quality and gorgeous designs!

Here's a peek at a few of the border designs...

MBO Dies and Valise

and the new 6x6 paper pack - Valise! Valise is colorful vintage printed on kraft cardstock. Perfect for those spring and summer projects, cards and layouts!

Some of the dies even match existing and new stamps. Do you have the Orchid Branch stamp?

 MBO Dies Orchid Branch

Isn't Bubba Elephant so cute? I can just see him on baby announcements, zoo layouts, 'didn't forget' and 'remember' cards...I'm sure you've come up with a few ideas, too!

MBO Dies Scall Circle

Here's another matching stamp and die - the scallop circle! And do you see the Butterfly Delights die? I LOVE this little bevy of butterflies...with a strip of scrap paper and few turns of the handle, I can have 15 mini bits of delightfulness to adorn any project. (There is a butterfly border, but you'll need to stop by the store soon to see it!)

Are you still sitting here reading? I've got one last peek to show you...

 MBO Dies Buttons

Button dies! Border and individual, in 4 sizes. How clever is that?

Here's an idea:

Scrap paper + Dazzling Diamonds = Customized Button Embellishments!

(Don't forget to let us know if there is something you see here that you want so you will be at the top of the list if there is something that we are out of stock of).

We have a "Stamp of the Month" for 40% off each any every month!!

We sure do. Every month we have a new Great Impressions Stamps display board full of cards. Each of the cards uses the 40% off featured stamp and other fun stamps, too.
We have all of the other stamps used on the cards as well, just in case you want to create some of the cards at home yourself.

Shown here is the May board, featuring some of our furry friends (with personality, of course)! 


 And, there is a photograph available each month of the Stamp of the Month display board,
"just in case" you have forgotten some of the fun cards you wanted to make by the time you actually sit down to create.

(Hmmmm, hope I am not the only one who gets sidetracked from time to time)

So, stop in and check out our 40% stamp each month - you will like what you see and the 40% savings, too!
