For the LOVE of Stickles!!!

Here are five more colors to fall in love with - Cinnamon, Cotton Candy, Burgundy, Baby Blue, and Gun Metal. They're all oh so yummy!

And finally, the tool that everyone was making themselves, Tim's Ink Blending Tool. Use this and make your Distress Inks and Alcohol Inks look so much more distressed!


This new line "Rock Star" from Creative Imaginations and Marah Johnson will get you rockin'

Some gorgeous double sided card stock

And Creative Imaginations' new Marquis Line swirls, crowns, and the King of Hearts, what more could you ask for!

Except for this...

And of course this,

These are the most gorgeous metal (yes, I said metal and Jennifer says heavy metal) embellishments that we have seen in a long time

O.K. we say this alot, but it's true, the pictures do not in any way do these brads justice. The velvet flowers on the right are a deep olive and brown. The metal brads on the top center are a filigreed brass and silver and the small brads are made to go in the center of the filigree brads or you can use them by themselves.

And you all must know by now how we love chipboard. And you know we love Fleur de Lis, wings, and crowns. Well, put them together and we are in heaven! This package comes with two 12 x 12 sheets of assorted crowns, wings, fleur de lis and flourishes.

Doesn't our wall look pretty?

And the paper, oh so gorgeous!

So stop drooling and get in here before it's all gone. Rock on!!!

A Gorgeous Magazine and....
time to toot a couple of our teachers horns! This is a project submitted by Judy Bidwell that was published. Of course it was taken apart for photographing but isn't it fun? As soon as Judy gets it back from the magazine she will set a date to teach it here!

You can on October 13th right here at Mystic Paper! Watch the web site for more info.

This is the back side of the hanging charms. So much fun! And oh, this special Holiday Edition of Somerset is available here.

Ready for Fall....

We just received these gorgeous papers from Melissa Frances, and of course they all coordinate beautifully together! They also have some great sticker sheets. But I think the most exciting is their new chipboard shapes-both Fall and Christmas!
Yummy Fall papers...
Another one of their Open Up Albums, this one is a house. I can just see all the Thanksgiving and Christmas books made with this. What a great gift idea.
Fall Chipboard shapes, the pack include pumpkins, leaves, some Halloween shapes and a very cool tree.
Christmas Chipboard Shapes include trees, snowmen, ornaments and a reindeer.
We also have new Melissa Frances Christmas papers and stickers.
Remember the wings and crowns rub-ons? Now there are even more!

Can this possibly be the prettiest paper and chipboard ever?

We're thinking it is! This paper line is from Prima who is better known for their flowers than paper or chipboard. This line is called...(are you ready for this?) Steel Toe Mary Jane. O.K., we admit it, we don't get the name but the paper is stunning. They are all double sided and the chipboard is sensational.
This line is called Rue 88 and has a real French flair!

More Rue 88. All double sided.

And more Rue 88.

Coordinating Chipboard for Rue 88.
Coordinating Chipboard for Steel Toe Mary Jane.
More gorgeous Chipboard!Another view of the Chipboard.
And of course, more of their beautiful flowers! These pictures don't even do justice to the beautiful colors and designs that are in these new papers and chipboard. You better get in here to see them in person before they're all gone.

Photography Classes!

We are lucky enough to have a photography expert, Dana Edwards now teaching classes here at Mystic Paper. So if you need a little bit of help with your digital camera or even your single lens cameras these are the perfect classes for you! Dana's first class will be this Saturday the 18th and we only have a couple of spots left. So I'd hurry and call the store now to reserve your spot 480-834-0286. Not only will Dana show you the ins and outs of your camera but she will show you how to take better photos! Each student will take home their own beautiful copy of a photography reference book that Dana has personally put together for you. So if you're like me and don't retain information the reference book is a perfect thing to keep me learning even more after I get home.-jw

Dana's Photo Editing class will be the following weekend on Saturday the 25th. She will be teaching you how to edit your photos on the computer. Again each student will take home a copy of a photo editing book that Dana has created.

Everyone can take beautiful photographs...especially after you take these photo classes.
