At these classes everyone has so much fun. Octobers Class is all about Snowmen. Can't wait to see the sample board. I will post a picture as soon as I get it.
We just received our shipment of the Sweet Collection. It is a scrumptious concoction of paper and chipboard embellishments with a glittery cupcake theme. It makes me hungry:)
This collection won't last long.

I thought I would introduce you to some of the new books and magazines in the store.
Altered Surfaces is a great book for altered arts. You'll discover that acrylic paints, fluids, gels, mediums, grounds, and pastes work as a "system", allowing them to be fully compatible with each other. You can mix and match to your hearts content without worry!
Get Ready to "Think outside of the box!"
How do you add sophistication and style to craft projects with shrink plastic, rubber stamps, and fun foam? Look to this bestselling author for a bounty of advice in this technique-packed book--then get ready to play!
* Discover dozens of imaginative embellishments made from paper, fabric, plastic, clay, and more* Create art without expensive supplies--over 150 photographs show you how.
Some of my favorite magazines are the Australia Scrapbooking and Cardmaking. I personally think they show something different and I love their interpretation of things. We just received some of the latest issues in the store.
The latest issues of Cards, Scrapbook Trends and Paper Trends have also arrived. I think I have every issue of Cards and Paper Trends and refer to them often for inspiration.
Are you intimated by the Clear or Acrylic books, then come in and get one of the many books we have about them.

They have been doing some fabulous samples in the store. We are working on adding a gallery to the website where you will be able to see all of their creations. In the meantime here is Lynn's project for August. She used a Maya Road house and Graphic45 papers. Isn't this fantastic?
The little book fits inside the house and has chicken recipes in it. Doesn't it look great! I will add some more of the Design Teams August projects later this week.

We had two Cricut classes yesterday. The second one was a layout and I thought you would like to see the project rather than the crowd! Some of the stuff that Mary can do with the Cricut is amazing. Don't forget that she is teaching the Cricut Design Studio in October.

Its funny though with the gift wrapping, I imagine a perfect Norman Rockwell Christmas with the fire blazing, carols singing, egg nogg and a marathon gift wrapping session.
Inevitably what happens is Christmas Eve I am up so late wrapping gifts, egg nogg untouched by my side, no fire burning because it is too flipping hot! me cursing so loudly about why I did not start the wrapping in March that I can't hear the Christmas Carols. But, ahhh Christmas Day the wonderful seasonal feeling is back. Santa has done his magic again. Yes, I still believe!
I am enjoying the Holiday Classes we are doing at the store. I get the Christmas spirit without the hassle. Here are some photos of our recent ornament class.

It seems we have created a little mania with the Cuttlebug. The entire first shipment was sold before it arrived, our second shipment sold out as well so a third is on its way. I personally love this machine and use it all the time. It is my plan to have everyone in South Florida own one of these lovely green machines and then who knows maybe I will go for World Domination!!!
