I picked up our Silhouette order yesterday so when I get to the store this morning, we be fully stocked in Cameo's, Portraits, blades, mats, etc.

We have almost all of the new medias: adhesive backed Kraft, most of the adhesive backed 12x12 cardstocks, etc. We have the gold, silver, clear, and white adhesive backed. We have their chipboard and almost all of the kits (except for the etching kit because they were out of stock on it. They had some allocated for us but their inventory numbers were incorrect). We have the new pen holder, the new pen set - which has colors not available open stock. We have vinyl, transfer paper, etched look vinyl, and more. All Silhouette accessories are hanging on the wall behind the counter. 
Also, don't forget that Dayle has a FREE DEMO next Saturday from 3pm to 5pm
and two Silhouette classes on Sunday.
Yesterday, we got in a Lifestyle Crafts order - that's the Quickutz brand, if you didn't know their actual name. We received in a bunch of Genius Platforms. This is a magnetic platform that will hold your dies in place and works in a BUNCH of different tools:
• Provo Craft Cuttlebug
• Sizzix Big Shot
• Sizzix Vagabond
• Fiskars Fuse
• Epic 6
• Evolution
Use with Sizzlits, Spellbinders, or Steel Rule dies.

It's VERY flexible!! The Genius Platform is $49.99

We also received some embossing folders. These are just a few of them! Their embossing folders are $9.99 each. 

We also received several of their "Shape 'N Tapes" which are sheets of "washi" that you can die cut out. These are just a couple of the color scheme packs we received...
Each package contains 5 different sheets and retails for $5.99 per package.

We also received a few dies, plus their QuickStick!


We also received TONS of Trendy Tape (Washi's) from Queen & Company!
They are only $2.99 for a 10 yard spool!!



Did you see the sample pictures I posted on Facebook?? CUTE!!! They came from Queen & Company's Design Team and are just awesome!

Our box of Elizabeth Crafts is lost in the Postal system due to it being misaddressed, but we hope to get it today. Fingers crossed!!

Come in and see us!

We received some great gifty things.

Also, Wellspring expanded their SUPER POPULAR "Keep Calm" line. Now they have the Flip Note (which we've had) for only $7.50 - in this sturdy metal case, the pen locks the note pad closed. The pad inside and pen are replaceable. But now, they added the Flip Case - great for holding your credit cards, gift cards, business cards and more.

New Classes Posted:
Our class schedule is really filling up! We have something practically EVERY WEEKEND for you guys!

Weekday classes:
We have several weekday morning classes scheduled for those who want to take classes while the kiddos are at school.

Plus, we recently did a poll on our Facebook page and found that many people would like weekday evening (5:30pm) classes so we will start asking teachers to schedule them periodically too. What do you think? What times and days do YOU want classes? If we were to add weeknight classes, which night is the best?

New samples have arrived:
Several new samples are at the store right now! While we post pictures of upcoming classes on our website, pictures seldom do a sample justice! Seeing the class sample in person is the best way to know if you like it, so I really suggest coming in to see samples live and in person.

Just arrived... Linda Bradbury's samples have arrived, Nicole Rixon has her September samples and one of her October samples at the store, Tori has two samples at the store, Jenny brought in her Graphic 45 Halloween book sample, and Danni brought in two Halloween class samples.
