New Papers

I wanted to share a photo I took last favorite angel that is in the Lead Catholic Cemetery. I love this angel. She is so inspiring. I couldn't get any where close to here this time, because of 3 feet of snow, so I took photos from behind. I love this photo. Peaceful and serene.

The Organic line from Bo Bunny has arrived. Gorgeous double sided papers. Everybody loves Bo Bunny. Perfect papers to get you in the mood for Spring in all your layouts and cards.

Cosmo Cricket Hey Sugar line is awesome. Sweet, soft double sided papers. I can't say enough about these papers. Love 'em, gotta have 'em.

Plus, we have some darling Easter papers from Reminisce with a light sheen to it. Very fun and super cute. Chicks Rule and Topsy Turvy Bunny and Happy Easter.

Happy Monday Everyone! Just checking in and updating a few things. We received more Glimmer Mist last week. Beautiful Colors and oh so much fun! A new shipment of Crafty Secrets also came in, all the cutle little dresses and hangers that you all love. Plus we added more Cotton Scraps and more of their carstock stickers. Great vintage images.
Several new colors of Tim Holtz's Crackle Paint and Distress Inks. Plus a great selection of his new Grungeboard. This stuff is so cool, just amazing what you can do with it. Check out his Blog listed in my favorites to learn more about it. Speaking of Tim, Lynne (Scrappin Ladies) had a class with him on Saturday. I'm so jealous. But don't forget we're sailing the Ocean Blue with Tim in May to Alaska. I can hardly wait. I sure do miss being at CHA with Lynne and Deb though, ecspecially when they keep calling me and telling me about Tim, the rides at Disney Land and the weather. So not fair.
Okay, enough rambling. We got some beautiful metallic rub ons from Heidi Swap. Pretty metallic flowers and such. We have some acrilyic tags and shapes from Clear Scraps that you have to check out. Amazing when you run them through the Cuttlebug and emboss them. Can't wait to try Alcohol Ink on them, too. Lots of new Catseye Chalk Inks are in, also. Great Spring Colors!
We still have openings in the class for Tuesday evening, see previous post, with the wrapped Hershey Nuggets. Just call if you want to sign up and don't forget 12x12 paper is 40% off til Wednesday.
