SEI - Glimmer Mist - Dew Drops Etc.

Some of the new things coming in are new to Lorraine's.

SEI, known for quality and coordinating, has joined us with the line "Monrovia". These flocked or foiled double sided papers are a solid value, and have coordinating die cuts and epoxy stickers.

Glimmer Mist, the new fall colors are in as are new bingo boards, and "frosty memories" glimmer glass and mist kits (3 bottles- frosty, slate, old lace, and a screen). We also received the new 15"x30" glimmer mats, for easy glimmer use.

Dew Drops, we received lots of different colors- blu & grn, org & blk, red & grn, blk & wht, grn & pk, metlc pk rd & gld, vanl brw. All the colors for fall, and winter card making!

McGill Punches- snowman, angel, cupcake, holly with berries, and fancy square in 2 sizes. The cool thing about these punches are the paper piecing ability of the pieces they punch out.

Judi Kins- This is a new product for us, ROXS. Come in and check it out. We will be making some very cool jewelry pieces with these ROXS. Wear them or decorate your mini albums or pages with them.

Sizzix- Embossing Folders in polka dots, flowers, snowflakes, flourishes, and a Halloween haunted scene. Also new original dies and sizzlets. Come check out the new embossing folders for dimensional backgrounds without bulk.

Scrapbook 101- New for us are these laser cuts in shapes and borders and in all categories (sports, faith, travel, kids, seasonal).

Custom Die Cuts- We have Woodstock Willie to go with our groundhog day papers, and the Opera House, and Mozart Festival die cuts too!

Memory Mixer- Ever wondered about digital scrapbooking? How about a hybrid layout. Come in and ask us how, and we will show you this easy to use program.

We have restocked in:

Glimmer Mist, Fiskars, Tim Holtz Tools, Adhesives, Sports Papers, paper flowers, glitter papers, and karen foster license plates.

**kim's tip- 3 is the magic number when doing you pages. Add buttons, flowers, ribbons, and color accents in threes for balance on your pages.

Mark your calendars for Saturday Sept. 26 . Join us for SCRAP PINK 10am to 5pm for $20. We will provide lunch with guest speaker Lynn Griesmaier from Centegra Health. All croppers will receive a "the cure" punch ($16 value). There will be lots of fun contests and giveaways. This event is close to our hearts here at Lorraine's. We also will ask croppers to make a card and donate $1 to Cancer Care Ministry of Harvest Bible Chapel of Rolling Meadows, to benefit cancer patients. Donations without the crop will receive a Lorraine's Memories Pink Tote as a Thank you. More details will be posted as soon as I get them, or stop in for more details.

Come in for tips, inspiration and ideas
