It's Here...


If you think it's just more chipboard, check this out (it's so cool)...

Come on in for a variety of shapes, alphas, basic sheets, and in dots, swirls, lines, harlequin and more. How's that for variety? And they don't skimp on the number of pieces you get (each package is loaded). This is absolutely unlike any chipboard you've ever seen. It is flexible and bendable and will not tear or break. If you didn't watch the really won't take long. It will explain everything and you will be amazed.

Also in from Tim... The Texture Hammer, Design Ruler and Fragments. Come on in to see for yourself and touch the samples!!

Hello all...
You still have time to get your name in the hat for our Thanksgiving RAK.
It only takes a minute. You have until Monday to comment. So what are you waiting for?
I'm going to start something new (or try to anyway). Every now and then, I'm going to tell you about some of my favorite blogs (and there are a lot). I find so much inspiration and fun stuff through other blogs. I would only hope that you all can do the same. Here's a few for today:
First up is the MAKING MEMORIES blog, in case you haven't seen it before. They always have such great ideas, cool products to drool over, contests, you name it. Take a look...there is a yummy recipe posted today that looks sinful.
Another blog I just can't get enough of is TARA WHITNEY'S blog. I'm sure you've all heard of this incredible photographer, but just in case...she is an inspiration. She used to be a Garden Girl over at Two Peas and started in scrapbooking, but is now a very successful photographer. I strongly suggest checking her out for picture taking ideas. SHE IS GOOD!
Hoping you enjoy your to grab a sweater :-)))

Hey gang...if you missed the Creative Cafe Happy Hour last Wednesday, then come on by this week. We're doing it every Wednesday until further notice. Morning happy hour is from 11-12 and the evening happy hour is from 7-8 pm. This week I got to help with the projects. The first is a Thanksgiving tag. You can use it for a place setting, on a gift, as a decoration of some sort, whatever you want!! The price will be approx. $2.75. The Creative Cafe line has so many colorful tags and in so many sizes. You can really do so many things with them!!

Another project you can make is this 1-page layout using lots of fun ribbon, buttons, chipboard, brads, felt words and cool lined paper. Now remember...if you want to come participate in the Happy Hour, you are welcome to make changes to the projects being offered. You can add or subtract or change up colors if you want. This is meant to be fun and creative. You only pay for the product that you use. This layout will cost around $6. Please join us or at least stop in and take a look.

Check out my last post regarding the RAK we're doing right now. You can't say you never win anything if you don't try!!
