Beautiful Backgrounds Cards, with Bonnie

UPDATE; I have added two new dates for this class;
Sunday July 6, 2014 - 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and Sunday July 20, 2014 - 11:00 am to 2:00 pm




There are many gorgeous printed papers out there to use as backgrounds for our card creations. Sometimes stepping out of the box and creating your own can be fun.
Do you need a different way to use all those embossing folders you own? How about all the cool stencils that we have seen and purchased and now ask “what do I do with these”?
You will create these four gorgeous cards using embossing folders, gesso, acrylic paint, embossing paste, stencils, embossing powder and my favorite, Tim Holtz distress inks.
Call the store to register 250-769-1257.

Butterflies are Free Cards, with Hazel

You know I love those stand-up cards!  This one is particularly delightful for a number of occasions.  It involves a combination of dies with the base Butterfly Pivot Card by Elizabeth.  A touch of bling makes it special and you will also make an envelope to fit.  If you haven't tried the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers, you'll see how easy it is to make the size envelope for every card.
Bring if you have: 1. - scissors & tweezers 2. - flower shaping tools & mat 3. - Tombo Multi Liquid Glue 4. - Memento Dye Ink (Summer Sky) 5. - Envelope Punch Board

Reopening Saturday, July 5th.

We have our new point of sale system up and running, but we want to take the next week to get very comfortable with it before we start our big sale.  Our current inventory is loaded into the new system and we are starting to enter the new product tomorrow.   You are welcome to come in and shop, take classes and crop as usual!  Thank you for your patience.

Inventory Still Underway

We haven't completed doing inventory yet, so will have to remain closed for two more days and will reopen on Saturday, July 5th.  There is sooooo much stock to enter into our POS and we're working hard at getting it finished.  Sorry for the delay!
