Crinkle Ribbon

We have just received new crinkle ribbon in lots of colors and new colors in the seam binding ribbon. We are so excited to see everyone's projects and Ginger Engler has posted some beautiful creations on her blog. Many of you know Ginger and her daughter from being in class with them at the store. She is always making something pretty and posts her work on her blog Glitter and Roses. Take a peek; it's all very inspiring. Ginger also has the cards pictured from our recent Hallowe'en in Wonderland Class in her September 22 post.

Learning Curve and Whoo-ligans

These two collections from Bo-Bunny just flew off the rack and we immediately reordered when we put them in stock. They are just too cute! We restocked on Friday and even have some new embellishments that we didn't have before in these lines and the Cambridge line. We will soon be getting more of the black tulle petal flowers that were so popular last week. We are so glad you all are having fun scrapping and making cards. We look forward to seeing more of your creations.

Tim Holtz ROCKS!
Ok, just had to put that out there ;)

We love these paint dabbers. There are so many colors and the best part...very little mess. We just filled our rack with great colors and we also have the mini misters that T.H. uses in this video. Check it out and come by to visit our display when you get a chance. Mel has some cards out, that use these dabbers, so you can get even more ideas.

Photo Op Photography Tip and New Classes

One of the great hidden features on digital cameras is the ability to adjust the flash. Take control of your flash so it flashes when you want it to. Most automatic flash settings will not fire the flash outdoors during the day. Adjusting the flash settings and forcing the flash to fire helps eliminate harsh shadows and helps to properly expose your subject. Want to learn more? We have photography classes for everyone.
