Tim, Tim and more Tim...oh and a R.A.K.

I may have said this before, but did you all know that TIM HOLTZ is coming to 911??

Yes... the one and only...

Is he not one of the cutest things you've ever seen? He is going to be teaching at the store June 2nd and 3rd. If you haven't seen the "calendar" or "what's new" on the main must go there NOW to find out what he is teaching and decide on which class you want to take!! I would call very soon, tho, as I know classes are almost full.


I made a quick stop into the store and found the girls unpacking lots of great new product. Oh should see some of this stuff from TIM. It is yummo!! I will spare you the anxiety and worry until you can get there in are some pictures for you...


Who wants to play a fun game? This is a fun one!! Let's see who can guess Tim Holtz's favorite soda!! Yup...pretty simple. All you have to do is leave me a comment with your guess and you'll have a chance to win this...

*** an Autographed book from Tim and a $15 gift certificate good towards any of his product ***

Now start guessing people! You have until May 30th to comment. In case of a tie, we'll do a drawing.


Needing some glue dots...hmmmm, I think we can help you out! Major Glue Dots are in da house! Lots of restock on EK Success. Super cute Mimi tote in red suede (delish). Super cute Making Memories Shimmer Jigsaw pre-glittered chipboard letters (in lavender, ice blue and black).

Hey there...Hi there!
Have you all seen what Miss Elsie is doing on her blog? Look here...
She is doing this silly self-portrait challenge. And if you remember, I challenged you all to take a picture of yourself a while honor of Elsie. I hope you all did it. I know SOME of you did...yay for playing along! But I just love how Elsie inspires me in so many ways...not just to take a picture of myself. If you get a chance to read her blog, I promise you will enjoy it. She is young and hip and a free spirit. She is so incredibly talented. Plus if you look at her blog, you'll get a peak at some of her product that is coming VERY SOON!
It is supposed to ship on Friday. That means we should have it in the store by Wednesday or Thursday. Please check here for updates...I promise I will post immediately when I see it with my own eyes! You are going to LOVE (Elsie) IT!
Oh...have you seen this yet?
It is the latest thing to hit the Internet...surrounding Scrapbooking. It's fun, creative, inspiring and NEW. Go check it out.
I will be back soon.

*** Hello. I hope you're all having a great week so far. Tomorrow is Friday. TGIF. ***
If you didn't get a chance to come in to the store over the weekend and for the big is some new stuff that has come in recently. I've talked about some of this stuff (ie: glitter adhesive paper) and now you can see a few pics. Now these pictures were taken on Saturday, the big sale day, so a lot of this product may be low in stock or out. I can't tell you for sure. And if want to be sure before you drive over to the store...give them a call and I'm sure they can tell you what's left.

For those of you who've been patiently waiting for the exciting new line from Love, Elsie (Elsie Flannigan)...we have gotten word that they will be shipping her stuff to us on the 15th. Once it ships, it could take a good week or more to get here. BUT YOU KNOW ME...I WILL LET YOU KNOW A.S.A.P when it arrives. It is going to be so good...i just know it is going to be better than what I remember!!

**** Wanna see some stuff I worked on recently????? ****

Ok...just a few layouts for some inspiration or ideas. Have fun and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. Enjoy .

How was your NSD? Did you all scrapbook? I hope so! I got to scrap for a few hours...after my kiddos went to bed. I wished I could have cropped all day, but sometimes it just doesn't work out the way you want!!

Here's what I accomplished in a couple of hours last night. I wanted you all to know that we got in some super cool stuff from Making in particular is the glitter adhesive paper. I don't know if that is the correct name for it, but I am soooo in love with it and I have to go back and get more. There were lots of great colors, but I only picked up the pink and turquoise. You'll see a little bit of it in these two layouts. I am telling rocks! You can cut out anything you want with it or use it as your background paper...use your imagination!! Go get some before it's gone...oh and it looks so much better in person!!

Will post more pics later...see ya!

The all day crop today for NSD looked like lots of fun. Here's a few pics of the action. If you haven't been there yet...get in before you miss out on all of the good deals.

Be sure to check back for more pics of new stuff...I'm not sure how long it will be in the store after this weekend is up. But if you're dying to know...more good stuff from Lil Davis, Making Memories (you will love it) and Karen Foster.
