Eye Candy

LOTS to show you today! First up, we just got in a fabulous line in for your back to school pictures. This is Crate paper and we love the texture and the colors here. My favorite paper is this report card one. It came with great rub-ons and 6 x 6 paper packs of all the papers in a mini size: This school house paper is just as cute and here's a look at the layered chipboard stickers that match. You have to see these brads in person--they are fabric covered and are beautiful!
Next in is Maya Road. Love this little chipboard picket fence album--check out this page of embellishments you get with it....

I was thinking of you gardeners out there---you know you've taken tons of pictures of your flowers and veggies--this would be the cutest way to house those pics!!

Look at these gorgeous ribbons they sent--the red satin pleated one has Christmas written all over it and the organza flowers are so pretty--couldn't you make a wonderful wedding card with it?

And of course Maya mist......mists were the big rage at CHA this summer...

Next up is a big shipment from Prima. This is all about flowers and butterflies......

The second line for Halloween we have in now is Haunted by My Mind's Eye. It's all about kraft paper and black flocking--much spookier that the line below! The raised images are awesome and we've got all nine papers in on this one too.

Christmas in August??

Yep, here's the first new Christmas line in our store today! I really like the top paper--perfect if you are thinking of creating some type of advent calendar for your kids. Lots of cute little stamps to match and more embellishments that you'll have to stop in to see!

Local Attractions

I mentioned this paper a few posts back but thought maybe a picture might be a good idea. Most of us have pictures of these places so we've got paper for Peoria Zoo, Wildlife Prairie Park, Peoria Chiefs, Tanner's Orchard, Wisconsin Dells, Race for the Cure and more!!

Create a Banner

It's so easy to create a cute chipboard banner with this Maya Road kit. I did this as a wall hanging that says "Shh, baby sleeping" but it would be cute with a child's name on it too. The kit comes with 6 of the triangles and TONS of embellishments. Flowers, stars, scrolls, borders--much more than I could use on this project! Can you believe all this for only $4.99!


I'm sure alot of you have been to the new Peoria Zoo this summer so I thought I'd show you this cute layout. Don't you love the circle punches using animal print papers? Very clever way to create a border.

We also have Peoria Zoo paper at the store as well as Wildlife Prairie Park.

Fun in the Sun

Don't forget Jillian's class this Sunday, August 15 (more pics below). We still have seats so call 691-5152 to reserve your spot to create this amazing little album to hold your summer pics.


Are you growing strawberries in your back yard? Or tomatoes? What do you do with them? Well, whatever that is, make a layout about it! Look how pretty this page is: The corrugated letters that say "JAM" are Jillibean soup and we have those in. Take time to scrap your crop!!

Dress Form

I know I've shown you this chipboard album before but I saw this and had to share--what a fun idea for this little book! We've still have a few left so maybe you could create your own "Rules" album:

New product

Wait until you see these!
Pick your base (in this case, "Our Story") and then add magnetic embellishments and pictures.
For the base, we have this one, Memories, Family, Boo, HoHoHo, and many more. And for embellishments we have even more--flowers, ladybugs, even a yellow lab!
Another cool feature on these is that you can either hang it on the wall or buy the base to slide it into.
