And The Nominees Are...

It's Oscar weekend and we thought we'd have a little retro Academy Award red carpet of our own with Graphic 45's Communique paper line. It is very Hollywood and glamorous.

We also have some Vintage Hollywood ephemera sheets, a few Oscar winning movies, Great Movie Lines cards, and even some bling for you to hold your own creative Oscar party this weekend.

Check out all the nominees and tell us your winning predictions for this year. The person with the most correct predictions will win a full line of Graphic 45's Communique product. If there is one or more people with the same number of correct guesses we will leave it up to a drawing of names to pick the winner.

HI! This is Ellen...and I'm guest blogging today!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend Quinn McDonald's "One Sentence Journaling" class. I wasn't sure about what to expect but since I'm a slacker when it comes to journaling I really wanted some ideas on how to get motivated! I was so excited and left with some fantastic ideas on how to get started and some even better ideas on how to stay motivated!
Her class this Saturday is "Journaling for Perfectionists" and I just wanted to let you know that her classes are wonderful if you are interested in developing your writing skills and turning them into pieces of treasured art! You won't be disappointed...I wasn't!

Sweet Treats...

We have re-ordered these beautiful issues of Somerset magazines. The Somerset "In Love" is a one time only issue. It is jam packed with over 100 pages of artwork from some of our favorite artists!
If your sweetheart is still looking for a sweet gift for you, this is definitely one to have. So send your Sweetie in to pick up an issue for you.

"Art Journaling" is an issue full of ideas that will get you thinking about journaling as part of your artwork. (And speaking of Journaling we have an upcoming class with Quinn MacDonald Saturday, February 21st, from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. called Journaling for the Perfectionist)

Now we didn't think issue would be as popular as it has been "Apronology". We did get it back in yesterday, but guess how many issues we have left? Just 2! If you'd like one, you'd better hurry in to claim one for your very own.

We Know You've Been Waiting...

Graphic 45 is here!
What makes Graphic 45 so different is that each collection includes a signature page that tells the story with a large “supporting cast” of double-sided paper and die-cut tags.

This first line is Comminique~ rich black, red & cream papers full of fun images of phones, phonographs, cameras, pens, mail, just about all forms of communication.

The other new line is Fashionista! This paper line is full of bright colors and gorgeous images.
But of course these are all much more incredible in person then photos of them.

We are so excited that the wait is over!
