Bits and Pieces of Home...
This book will showcase your home and your family! Suzette has used many creative distress techniques to add that extra touch to a book that is made to look like your home! From brick to stucco, front doors, and windows this book has it all. Lots of hidden pockets, tags, and the thing that Suzette is well know for, her sayings! This class will be taught for the last time this Saturday, April 5th 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Don't miss out!

Lots and lots of new product!

The newest edition of Somerset Memories which highlights a Soldered Memory Necklace project by our teacher Josie Cirincione! Josie taught an Etched Riveted Heart and Wing Necklace in our new classroom this weekend. She was the first to teach in the new "downstairs" classroom and we're happy to report that the classroom is working out great! For a few comments on her class read here and here.

And, yet another great publication of Life Images. Jammed full of wonderful photography and journaling.

Stop by and check out our new cardstock line by World Win Papers. Their newest textured cardstock is called Ruche and is absolutely gorgeous. It has a linen feel to it and is simply amazing. We also carry their Cascata line and Petallics. These papers are produced using 100% wind power! Go Green!

Our next new line is "Old Fashioned Flowers" by Kimberly Poloson. Beautiful vintage flocked papers!

Mat Stacks, Chipboard Letters, and Shapes.

Ribbons, Metal Stickers, and Flocked Labels.

Matching Rub-ons in flourishes and borders.

A new embellishment to play with. Wood Flourishes and Flowers. Paint, ink, stain, stamp, you name it!

Our second class on Saturday was taught by our very own Ellen Brownlee. Once again she set up her own little flea market for her students to shop in and the put together a book called "Oh The Things I Love". This class was a huge hit so watch for her to teach it again!

A very happy group of students!

Ellen had the most delightful group of women in this class. Friendships were made and they plan to meet up again and complete this one of a kind book!
