FUN for a good cause!

Scrap Pink was a blast. If you missed it, you must do it next year. There were LOTS of giveaways, and everyone got a goodie bag. The silent auction for Hope Fuller was a success too. The merchants from Woodstock who donated were very generous. There was food all day. Coffee, cookies, and candy. We enjoyed a talk about breast cancer and the different technology there is available today. Most of all we met new friends, and had a lovely time. I hope our attendees will join us for our Friday and Saturday crops where I can continue to get to know all of you better. I saw some projects that gave me great ideas, and I was inspired. I can't wait to get to work.
Thank You ladies for sharing your ideas and projects with me!
New in the store: Little Yellow Bicycle Halloween Line, (back in stock) Glimmer mist Fall colors, and glimmer mist mats perfect for misting, stamping or any kind of ink work. They are a must have! One of my favorite things of all time... Nunn Design Metals. Think fancy decorative metal corners, mini frames, flowers and snowflakes. You can use as is or patina them with paint. They are going fast so come in and get yours now!

This Wednesday is the last time we are offering the first three of Tim Holtz Twelve Days of Christmas Tags. We use Tim's techniques to make beautiful tags. Next month we will have the next three tags. Come and check it out. Classes coming up in October include Glimmer Mist Cards, Sizzix Pop Up Cards, Judi Kins Charms, Karen Foster/Little Yellow Bicycle Halloween 2 page Layout with liquid pearls. We will use a transparency and a laser cut in this layout. I'll have more photos later this week.

Till next time

Kim's tip of the week: When making cards to mail you must have no bulk. Add dimension without height by embossing your backgrounds or paper pieces of your shapes before you adhere them. I use my Sizzix Big Shot and I emboss with embossing folders, brass templates. texture plates of all brands, and sometimes the vegetable netting you get your onions or oranges in or in the bottom of your pizza box. The netting is also good for masking when using glimmer mist.
