Lots of "new" going on here!! Inky Antics is a new stamp line we've gotten in and to have more fun with it, Laura will be offering a class to help you play with it. Come to class and make these two adorable cards:And here's what happens when you open them. Inky Antics makes this Honeycomb paper (in lots of colors) and it is so easy to make this happen on the inside of your cards!

Here's the inside of the frog card:

Love is in the air book

Here's a little chipboard book that Chris put together using one of our new lines in from My Mind's Eye. Did you hear that you can get the chipboard book FREE?? On May 7, National Scrapbook Day, stop in and purchase $10 of new My Mind's Eye product--and we've got a ton of new stuff in from them! Once you do that, you'll leave with the Love book FREE!!

Pink tool kit for the Cricut

Well this is just about perfect for Mother's Day?? LOVE this pink tool kit. And it's a really good deal on top of it. For $14.99 you get: Metal cup, scissors, the AMAZING Cricut spatula (this thing makes getting your die cuts off the mat sooo much easier), ruler, bone folder, scoop, hook and knife. We just got a bunch of these in but I think they'll be gone fast!

Wondering what to get Mom (or Grandma?) for Mother's Day? Carrie has the answer with this beautiful page that you could frame. Join her next Tuesday nite, April 26 to make this wonderful page. She also will be creating a companion page for the guys for Father's Day so the set will be awesome! You'll get to play with the Tim Holtz Sizzix dress form die and Bo-Bunny vintage paper.
Call 691-5152 to sign up.

Fresh out of the box!

You may have heard that Basic Grey paper company has teamed with Hero Arts stamps to create some beautiful new sets. Just out of the box tonite we've got them all in! The cool part is that the stamp images match the paper so it's easy to create projects that match perfectly. We have the matching little paper packs and they have scaled down the patterns, making it ideal for cardmakers.

White Vellum

If you want to do something easy that makes a big impact check this idea out!
Just wrap your present in plain old kraft paper and then mist it with white or any other soft color.
Stamp the flower images using Versamark ink and then sprinkle it with white embossing powder on white vellum. Heat it up and watch the magic happen! Add a few pearls and you've got an amazing looking gift -- a lot cheaper than buying wrapping paper and a lot prettier!!
Would be beautiful for a wedding gift wouldn't it?

Gift Card holder

A few weeks ago, I saw this little tutorial on Heidi Swapp's blog and had to try it. Easy, easy, easy and how fun would it be to give this to someone special?
Here's the inside with a little pocket....oh look, a Scrapadoodle gift card inside :-)
If you go to her blog, scroll way down since I think it was early March when she posted it.

How many cards?


That's right, 752 cards have been collected so far for Operation Write Home. All these cards will be sent to our soldiers overseas for them to write home on.

Amazing isn't it?

So I thought, why not lay them all end to end just for fun. It took me over an hour to lay them all out!!! And then, as you can see in this video, it's a 5 minute winding walk around the store to look at them all!! (if that side bar bothers you, just double click on the picture and it will fill your screen)

Of course, we have to say a huge THANK YOU again to all of you..we never would have believed this when we started!!

And guess what? We aren't done yet so keep them coming. We have to get to 1000 don't you think? We are so proud of you guys and again...THANK YOU!!
