New Cuttlebug Embossing Folders!

The new holiday Cuttlebug embossing folders arrived a couple weeks ago and have been selling quickly. We still have them all in stock, but they are going quickly and these will likely be similar to other seasonal items and not available after the holidays. Come in quick for the best selection. Some of the new folders are a 5x7" format, perfect for larger cards. As always, they emboss wonderfully.

Check out these adorable "kittens in mittens" images from Lockhart Stamp Company! Aren't they just the cutest? If you're a cat fan and looking for some easier holiday cards, these little guys can certainly help you out! There are 3 different stamps - the difference is in the design on the mitten. All are adorable!

Believe it or not - MS Icicle punches are BACK!!!

We have been waiting FOREVER for these to come back and they have finally arrived! I am not certain what the marketing theory is with EK Success and Martha Stewart Crafts, but you cannot order some items "out of season" and you never know if something will come back - or if you'll get any if they do bring it back. We pre-ordered these in April and they finally showed up last week. Get them while they're here - who knows if we will see them again!

Gift card and money holders

These are some gift card and money holders that we're going to to making in class next week and in the first part of December. We are all sending more gift cards for the holidays - especially for those family and friends far away. I personally have given up trying to find physical gifts for most of my nieces and nephews, as they live far away and our tastes are different. It was tough to photograph these. The card with the cardinals has a holder for a gift card on the inside. The money or check holder is the long one and a card slides out with a pocket where you can insert your gift. The jingle bells add a little festive touch!

Harvest Candle by Lockhart Stamp Company

This is a great card from Lockhart Stamp Company using their image called "Harvest Candle." The classy image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and set off with simple layering. We just got in a large order from Lockhart stamps featuring some great new holiday designs.
