Have you ever seen such a beautiful rainbow? Our cardstock section has expanded to the entire length of our "BIG" wall! If we don't have the color you are looking for, it probably doesn't exist!

What's new?

Everyday we get phone calls and people coming in the store asking "so what's new"? We have been receiving new Fed Ex and UPS deliveries daily, so I will give you a quick update on what is "new" since our last blog:

Heidi Swapp's Invisibles (stickers, chipboard, and cardstock....very cool stuff)
Paper Adventures Tropical Collection
Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens and Clear Stamps (gorgeous)
American Crafts

We also have some some VERY SPECIAL ladies coming to our store on April 1st to do a Wednesday evening class. The Glitz girls will be teaching an incredibly awesome 8x8 acrylic album class with 6 insert pages using their "Rebel" collection of papers. I will post a photo and more details as soon as we get them- which should be real soon.

Have a great weekend!

After The Round-Up

The 2009 Houston Area Scrapbook Round-up was a GREAT success! We had a great time seeing old friends and welcoming new ones! In spite of the bleak news reports about the economy, we had nearly exactly the same amount of sales this year as last year! Just shows that we are one of those "recession-proof" businesses - scrapbooking is therapy, not merchandise!

Still lots of new merchandise coming in from CHA. We finally received the German Gold Foil paper and Dresden victoriana embellishments! They are going fast, so come in soon! Graduation is right around the corner, and we have lots of new graduation paper and embellishments! We are also working on our Graduation Pizza and a 6-Pack, so keep an eye on the newsletter for that date. Come in to see the new garden fairy version of the dress form from Creative Imaginations!

Our buddy Mark at Dead Beat Designs has come up with some wonderful new ideas for explosion for a class soon! We are going to be doing our own version of a Bluebonnet Festival in April with make-n-takes, classes, and other fun stuff.

Also in the works is a class for all you party planners...boxes, cards, and invitations in various themes - look for graduation, birthday, wedding, and others!
