The Latest in from 7 Gypsies...

These are the very affordable, very beautiful chipboard Book Covers, Victoria and Gypsy. They come packaged with the front and back covers together for just $2.99. No, they're only $1.99 per set! What? It's true, that's not a typo, they are just $1.99 per set.

If you have an ATC spinner, you'll want to add these to your collection of fun. 10 designs and 2 of each design for journaling (or whatever you want) that will fit right onto your ATC spinner. This sets' edges are all scalloped and fancy, great colors too.

And speaking of color...these are the pretty tabbed Alphabet Transparencies for the Photo Carousel! Once you see these in person, you'll just H2HEM! (have to have them) You don't even need the Photo Carousel to use them.
So many pretties, so little time!

We have all of the newest issues from Stampington in stock!

Artful Blogging. If you have been thinking about starting a blog, this is the magazine for you. It will pull you right into the wonderful world of blogging and get you completely hooked. The photos in this magazine are sure to inspire.

Who doesn't dream of having a wonderful studio? We've heard comments like "why would I want to look at these women's studios when I could never have one like it?" What we have found when looking at their beautiful studios is that it give you ideas of what to do with what you have in your own studio. And if you look closely you can find inexpensive ideas for storage and great ideas for display. In addition to getting to look at their studios you will also be able to read their stories. Stories of their lives, struggles, and accomplishments. Stories that will make you realize that "they're just like us".

And finally the newest Somerset Studio.

We had the honor of a visit from Carlene Federer and Becky Bunn and guess what? They are both published in this issue of Somerset! Check them out on pages 12 - 14 and 92 - 95. Our list of published teachers is growing and growing. That's right both of these talented ladies have classes on our calendar. Becky's is on the website already and Carlene's will be on our calendar shortly. It was published in a previous edition of Somerset and she just got it back into her own hands. We'll have it photographed and on the calendar soon!

Our Altered Apron Auction is Underway...

Bids have already begun to come in!
Did you know that all of the aprons that are currently being auctioned all began looking like this?

Way back when, we ordered these aprons and thought we'd sell them in the shop, however...they weren't very pretty. Check out what some of our Mystic peeps have done with these not so attractive aprons, they're now incredible works of art. For more information on how to bid and info about where the proceeds are going, check out Mystic Paper Swaps and Trades Blog!

Saturday's Wonderful Classes...

Thanks to Lisa Super, we had two great classes last Saturday. Everyone had so much fun working on their dress forms. We had many last minute sign ups and divided the class into two sections.

A little demo and everyone was off to create!

There were many embellishments to choose from, it was hard to decide just what to use.

Some seriously beautiful tags and some serious fun too! Sherry and Kim celebrated Kim's birthday. Happy belated Kim!

Melody with her finished project! We would love it if everyone would bring in their finished dress forms...maybe a little dress form get together? How's that sound?

Friday's Scrapbooking and Soldering...

This weekend is Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention at the Mesa Convention Center, since it's just around the corner from us we have been very busy. It's always so much fun to see all of you who come in from out of state to the convention and then come to visit us. We think all of you should live closer!

Our Master Soldering Teacher Josie Cirincione had a full house tonight with her Found Objects & Soldered Charms. This is a great beginner class and Josie always does such a great job. Everyone leaves happy with their projects, and their new skills.

They're up! The Altered Aprons are hanging up in the store for you to view. Come in and check all of them out. They will be up and you can also bid on the aprons through the end of the month. The silent auction will benefit Bernie Berlin's A Place to Bark. "TEN" To LIFE!!" A Place To Bark's Annual Fundraiser is currently underway. Any donations will be very helpful, please read Bernie's blog for more information about the incredible work she is doing.

We will be posting more about the Altered Apron Auction on our Swaps & Trades Blog.

Flirty Little Secret...

This beautiful album is being taught by our Guest Teacher Lisa Super. Lisa is coming to teach 2 classes this Saturday from Northern California. Lisa is a "Prima Donna" Teacher, which means she is endorsed by Prima, one of our favorite paper companies. In this class you will be using Prima's Flirty Little Secret line of papers and embellishments. We don't feel that the photos we posted before did this album any justice, so here are more photos.

See, isn't it beautiful? We do have a couple of spots in this class and we want to fill them. We also have a very special guest attending this class on Saturday. We promise you will all have a great time.
