Happy New Year

Hope you all are looking forward to a long weekend and a Happy New year! I hear there's a really good sale going on at Scrapadoodle---check your email!!

We got a shipment in from Hero Arts so if you missed the release party, there's some more of those in + some new ones like these:
Plus you could pick them up with your coupon for 20% off!
We are still excited about the Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas and still have most supplies still in stock. You'll find this one in the store now if you'd like to see it in person. This one has one of my favorite techniques from this year's tags. Those numbers started out as bright silver metallic. It's simple to change them: just paint them by using a white Adirondack paint dabber, sprinkle white embossing powder over the wet paint, tap excess off and then heat emboss. Voila! Snowy white numbers. Easy, with amazing results!

What are your favorite treats?

I know many of you agree with me that Starbucks is one of the best treats! I thought this layout was a really cute idea--take time to document what treats mark your annual holiday list of favorites. Or better yet, ask each member of your family and do a layout telling everyone's fav!
