You may or may not know but... there have been some exciting changes to the stamp of the month program! Now you are eligible to get the stamp of the month for just $5.50 when you reach $55.00 in product order (before shipping and taxes). This makes it easier for everyone to get the wonderful D-sized feature stamp each month!

Each stamp of the month stamp set now features a quick product guide with instructions and product lists to make everything seen in the picture above (or on page 140 of the idea book). The September Stamp of the month is available until September 30 only- so visit our website or call us today to get yours!

Typeset Workshop-

Join us September 22 at 7 pm for this workshop!

Typeset Workshop uses the NEW CRICUT Art Philosophy cartridge which is so easy to use with our new cardstock weight patterned papers and coordinating stamp sets that fit perfectly every time! This workshop also features the new milepost corrugated shapes, pearl paint and my new favorite edge distressing technique: re-inker's!

The workshop kit is $33.50 plus shipping and tax and includes a level two paper pack with two bonus sheets of neutral cardstock, an exclusive C-sized stamp set, the NEW milepost shapes, pearl paint and a workshop guide with step by step detailed instructions for completing the featured layout.

Additionally there is a second layout as seen on page 19 of the IDEA BOOK that we will complete at the workshop using the same kit. This fun layout uses one of Jeanette's patterns found in her latest how-to book: Magic!

Cricut - Art Philosophy

WOW - the new Cricut Collection Art Philosophy is to die for - die cut that is! For $109.95 you get the exclusive cartridge (featuring 700 shapes including 3D boxes and flowers , card bases and a versatile font), THREE exclusive stamp sets designed to coordinate perfectly with the shapes on the cartridge (it even tells you what size to cut them right on the stamp set!) and three coordinating chipboard collections that also match perfectly to the shapes featured on the cartridge and stamps!

Complimentary stamp images are outlined in red throughout the idea book and will have the size listed on the stamp set sheet (the clear sheet the acrylic stamps are stuck to when you get them) so that you can perfectly cut your images to fit with the stamp set!

We are now happy owners of one beautiful pink Cricut Expression machine that can do images up to 12x24 so if you would like to come over and borrow (use) it you are more than welcome to come to one of our open crops. These are free to everyone to come and play - build a workshop you missed, learn a new technique, use our stamp sets or tools and get some scrapbooking or card-making done without the mess in your own home. The open crop dates for the next two weeks are as follows:
