New My Favorite Things Dies


Just got some new MFT dies in. This is a card I took from an email showing me the new dies and stamps. It uses the new Poppy stamps and matching dies. Poppies are really popular this year. New dies include a chicken wire background die and two Blueprint sets. These are sets of elements designed to work together to make designing cards easier. I’m playing with them now.

Please note that the store will be closed this Saturday, while we visit with family for the weekend. It will reopen Tuesday, May 28th at 10:00.


Love the Memory Box Dies

I spent some time this afternoon playing with the Tiffany Frame and the Fabulous Phlox dies. I saw something similar to this on the Memory Box blog. I like the phlox die because it comes with some small foliage and a center for the flower. The sentiment stamp is from My Favorite Things.
All of the Evolution Die Cutting machines are gone, but if you’re in the market for a machine, I have several of the new Big Shots.

Impression Obsession Card


I thought you might like to see a sample of the dress form stamp I have in the store. This sample was taken from Impression Obsession’s website. I thought it was very pretty. I do still have some supplies left for their Make n’ Take, just stop in.

I have just one Evolution Die Cutting Machine left in the store. At 40% off it won’t last long. If you’re interested, hurry in.

I received the first order from Sizzix. It has several different styles of the Flip-It dies, as well as
the dies for the pop-up cards. Hopefully, I get some of them done.

Memory Box Dies Have Arrived


Important News

I was playing with the vine frame by Memory Box today and this is what I came up with. I used SEI paper for the background, and a foliage die from Memory Box with a pink flower cut with the sunflower die from My Favorite Things.

Now for the important news. I have decided to add a second level to the rewards program at the store and call it R. U. Golden. Here’s how it works. Once you have reached $250.00 in purchases you will get a yellow card in the box. This card will have only four boxes on it instead of six, so you will get your rewards faster. Also, as a special bonus you will get your regular reward plus 20% more. So, if your reward is $10.00, 20% more is $2.00, so your reward would be $12.00. Since we are already into May, for this year you will only need to reach $75.00 to get the yellow card. Next year will start the $250.00. For those of you who have made purchases in May, I have already been counting them toward the $75.00. Of course, sale items and specials do not count towards rewards. Questions? please ask.

The order from Taylored Expressions arrived today, and the good news is the Memory Box order has shipped. I’ll let you know as soon as it arrives.

Background Die

I’ve been wanting to use this chevron background die by Taylored Expressions for awhile. This is one of their dies that can be cut from several different papers and chevrons from the other papers inserted into the background. This company makes several different patterned dies for backgrounds, and I have a large order that should be in this week.

I know that some of you have been thinking about investing in a die cutting machine. I have a special this week that is too good to pass up. While supplies last, the Evolution machine made by Quik Kutz is 40% off regular price. Plus I’ll add a Quik Kutz die. This is such a good deal, since I got a good deal from the company. This machine works exactly like the Big Shot, but comes with the new cutting pads that warp less and last longer. This would also be a good time for those of you who have a lake house or someplace you travel to a lot, to have a machine there eliminating the need to take it with you. Have questions? Stop in the store.

I finally got all the die cutting done for the new Make n’ Take. Stop in and stamp the two small pieces and take the rest home to finish.

New Make and Take

The order from Impression Obsession arrived this afternoon. This is the new Make It n’ Take It card. If you’d like to make one of these cards stop by the store anytime and make a card to take with you. Everything is provided, however, If you prefer not to use glue stick, feel free to bring your own adhesive.
