It's a beautiful day...

And despite the chill, the sunshine we experienced today was a welcome relief from the last few days of torrential downpours and very cold temperatures. Maybe spring really is just around the corner. If you are ready for some spring crafting and card making, we have lots of lovely new papers and embellishments in the store from American Crafts, Basic Grey, Best Creations, We R Memory Keepers, and Tweety Jill. I especially love the printed kraft papers from American Crafts, they are just so sweet. Look for these papers being used in upcoming demos and classes, we have lots of great ideas to share with you!

Today Barb taught an Asian card class. This class always sells out very quickly and no wonder as to why. Here are a few of the cards that were made in class...

Aren't they just fabulous? Barb used punches, washi papers, mizuhiki cords, and Poppy Stamps for this class. These samples and more are in the store if you would like to take a closer look.

Have a wonderful week and make someone happy!

Tea Cups

Last week, Beth Butterfield was at the store to teach one of her very popular torn paper collage classes. Look at the beautiful results created by her students.

Aren't those lovely? Torn paper collage is so much fun and Beth is a wonderful teacher. Every student always finishes their piece and comes away having learned a new artistic technique. Beth will be back in April so be sure to stop by the store to see a sample of the upcoming class.

Make someone happy...
