Tims Stickles

OMG...Tim's Distressed Stickles are here finally.
I got a call this morning that they arrived and flew to the store.
They are so pretty. They have a frosted (matte) look to them. They are not like the metallic glitter like the original stickles they are a vintage glass glitter without the glitter.

Here are the colors:
worn lipstick, fired brick red, spiced marmalade, scattered straw, peeled paint, broken china, faded jeans, milled lavender, antique linen, frayed burlap, vintage photo, and walnut stain.

Glitz Stickles by Suze Weinburg
These are absolutely beautiful.
The 6 new colors are:
Ruby Slippers, Grape, Sequins, Tiara, Mermaid, Champaine

These are going to go fast. I know lots of us scrappers need more bling to put on our layouts. Who is going to get some? I know I want one of each of the new 18 colors.(12 of the Distressed Stickles by Tim Holtz and 6 Glitz Stickles by Suze Weinburg)

Mondays sketch on Tuesday

Here is your Mondays sketch on Tuesday. It is one day late but don't shoot me. I got this sketch from the pagemaps october newsletter.
Here is my take on it. This is Joshua at his preschool Thanksgiving feast.
Have a good Tuesday!!

Bobunny and Kaiser

Bobunny (not the Easter bunny) is in the house. It is so cute. Is is their valentines line but would also go for spring.
Here is Kaiser. For those hunters in our lives this is a great paper line for hunting and for the men in our lives.
When I left the store today we had several boxes that haven't been unloaded yet. The girls said that there were some new doodlebug papers. So....I will have more pictures to show you soon.


Some people has requested that I put up a couple of layouts from the store to the blog so here they are. I know lots of you have bought these paper lines so here are layouts to get ideas on how to use the paper.

All three of these were made by Tami our instructor here at the store. If you have taken any of Tami's classes she would like for you to visit her at her blog and fill out a survey of some sorts. Here is her blog:

Christmas has come to SB

I have a little helper today to help me out with the new stuff at SB 911. This is my new puppy Chloe.
Remenise Christmas has arrived. Love all the glittery shimmery papers. I have made a few samples with this paper. They are hanging up at the store. I'm sure Tami will have some great ideas with this paper also.

Up next is Rusty Pickle. We have some camping paper for those of us that went camping this summer. They also have some fun Halloween black and white and cream paper in fun shapes.

DCWV has some fun sweet paper. They are also glittery. How about that chocolate paper? Looks so yummy!!

Last but certainly not least is Basic Grey Christmas line, Wassail. We couldn't get it out of the box today. Customers were buying it right out of the box. It is selling like crazy today.

We are having a retreat this weekend but the doors are still open for our customers to shop. Hurry up if you find something you like before it is all gone with the retreaters there this weekend. Have a good day!!

Tami's Calender Kit

Here is Tami's Calender Kit that she does every year.
What a great job she did. It is double sided, made with acrylic and can be put into an album when the year is up. The stand is included. (thanks to Mike for making the stand)

Everything is cut out for you and photos are included to make it very easy to put together. She has sold several already so there may be a short wait list if you don't hurry in and grab yours early.

Our UPS and Fed Ex men loved us today. We received in lots of new things today and this week. Prima is one of my favorite companies. They really out did themselves this CHA. They were one of the top companies at CHA that was a really wow company. They came out with a variety of different things. We received in not only flower but glittery transparency overlays and collage transparencies. Over the top wow.

I love gems. Prima came out with some digital cds. One of the ones we received is
GEM SILHOUETTES: 20 digital stamp designs to use with our say it in crystal gems and gem swirls. It includes frams, stripes and decorative elements.
QUICK PAGE OVERLAYS: 32 quick overlays for your 12 X 12 and 6 X 6 layouts. Print them out onto your favorite paper and add your favorite embellishments.
They are fun to play with. Gaelynn will have a sample for all to see shortly.

The gems that we receive are orange, red and green. They come in squares, circles, hearts, etc.

I love me some flowers and leaves. Lots of these flowers match the paper. They actually made these flowers go with the paper. The paper collections we received in are:
Little Boo...Hello Spaceboy...Youth...Little Guy
I am in love with these papers and flowers.

They did a fab job on these. What do you think? We also received in a big bucket of flowers. WOW. I didn't get a picture I guess because I was wowing over it.
This is your blog queen signing out for now.
