Summer of Savings

This week's special is 30% off unmounted stamps. I'm also extending the sale on thickers for one more week since I neglected to send out an email last week.

Next week will be our final week of summer of savings. It will be a big one that you won't want to miss.

At CHA I walked by a counter that was covered in lovely flowers. Well, who doesn't stop to look at pretty flowers? Upon taking a closer look at the flowers, and the lady behind the counter who was in the middle of making another one, I realized that they were sewn.

Sometimes when you think you are keeping your thoughts in your head, they actually pop out of your mouth (or am I the only one who experiences that?). So, aloud I said (probably with a scrunched up nose) "Oh, that's sewing". The lady behind the counter replied, "No it isn't, it is connect the dots." So I paused a little longer and watched her make a petal with a Kanzashi template. Sure enough, it was connect the dots using a needle and thread. It looked so easy. When I got home I ordered the templates to try it for myself. My creations are pictured below. They are a bit chunky for a layout, but so cute for a card.

At CHA there were a number of people pushing the idea of adding to cards something that the receiver could remove from the card and use, such as a pin, or a hair accessory. The Kanzashi flowers would be perfect for that. So fun!

Giant Copic

This week a new copic rack arrived, along with lots of copics to stock it with. It is HUGE and I love it. It overpowers the store a bit, but boy oh boy will it look great at Scrapfest in the fall don't you think.

My Tube Creations

I took some tubes home last night and had some fun creating. Take a peek. (inspired of course by the SRM blog) The butterfly tube has scotch mints inside and the back to school tube has crayons inside.

Do you need a favour?

I took a fun class at CHA with SRM stickers. Stickers! Really? Yes, it even surprised me. We made favours using assorted sizes of tubes that SRM sells. Their blog is really worth taking a look at, and if you think you need some of the tubes, or calendar stickers that you see on the project, we've got them. Click here to view their blog (make sure you look through older posts on their site. There are some great ideas. Below are a couple of samples from their blog.
