Check out what's happening!

Hello Bloggerettes,

The next few weeks are peak season for Scrapbookers’.  The store is being stocked for your crafting enjoyment.
Pick up a “WISH LIST” printout from the store to put on the fridge for your family’s shopping ease.
If you participated in Tim Holtz’s “Creative Chemisty 102” you will want to invest in several of the products he demonstrated so that you can try the techniques yourself.  We are in the process of re-stocking the entire Tim Holtz wall in the store.  Paula Cheney is also up to her usual self and making lots of Christmas projects from Tim’s goods.

Most scrapbookers’ have addictive personalities.  Stencils, sprays, washi tape!  How many do you have?  It’s obvious you need more.  We can help you with that – ha, ha, ha.
Did you know that there is washi tape in camo and Lego patterns?  Have you seen our custom made washi tape rotating holder?  Robbie has one!   FYI:   Heidi  F Swapp has 6 new colors of “Color Shine”.
BASIC GREY has brought back the “Calendar Kits”.  They will be in-store shortly.  Don’t wait, call in to reserve yours.  403-271-2225

Don’t forget about our WOODEN LETTERS.  New babies, newlyweds, kid project over the holidays – the perfect gift!
