Small Saturday

hp photosmart 720

I hope by this time many of you have seen the commercial spots or heard about Shop Small Saturday.  This was begun by American Express two years ago.  We all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Small Saturday encourages people to shop at their local small businesses.  I, too, encourage you to shop Hot Springs’ local small businesses, including R. U. Stampin’ & Scrappin.  Help keep our local businesses healthy.  It’s good for our community!

This card uses a couple of my favorite dies and stamps.  They are Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and Hero Arts flower.

I finally have everything that I need to do the Christmas Ornament Make and Take card.  Stop in and let me know you would like to make one, it should only take a few minutes.  I provide glue sticks, but if you would prefer, you may bring your own adhesive.

If any of you would like to make the Squash Book, I will be having a class on Tuesday,  Nov. 27th at 11:00.  The cost of the class is $18.00.  Call to make your reservation.

Pine Branch Die

I just received a new order of these dies.  The order also contained the wreath die used a couple of posts ago.  Now is the time to come in, if you’ve been thinking you “need”  them.  Oh, the pine die is about 4 inches long.

Memory Box Die

I had fun playing with the Quinn Flourish Die.  Like most of the Memory Box Dies, it is so delicate.  This card could be used for many occasions, since I hate to start thinking of Valentine’s Day before Thanksgiving is here.

Speaking of die cuts, new in the store is a magazine published by Paper Cuts featuring die cuts.  There are some great ideas for using the dies you have.  It also has a chart comparing die cut machines and listing the various materials that each machine can cut.  For all it’s information and inspiration, the magazine is only $5.99.

Please note that the store’s hours on Saturday are 10:00 until 3:00.

Squash Book

I don’t know if you have ever seen a book like this.  I taught this class quite a few years ago and thought if might be fun to do it again.  The front of the book has the snowman on it, and the other picture is the book opened.  It might be fun to make one of these for each person celebrating Christmas with you to add their own pictures to it.  If you’re interested in making one let me know, and I’ll schedule a class for you.  The cost will be $18.00 and includes materials except for adhesives.

I apologize for the picture being absent from the emails the other night.  I’m still not sure what happened, and I hope it works tonight.  If it doesn’t, check the blog to see the picture.

New Make and Take Card

Here is the new Make n’ Take Card.  If you’d like to make one of these cards and get a headstart on your Christmas cards, stop in the store.  The card is from Impression Obsession Rubber Stamp Company.
