Hi, just recieved the new Zing Embossing powders and I really like them. They have a smooth finish and a nice high gloss. Some of the colours seem to have a touch of gold in them .

Recieved an order from Outlines and I have the Jewel Christmas tree stamp as well as thier new Jewel Pumpkin, Jewel Snowflake and Jewel Angel Stamps. Here is a sample of a card made with the Jewel Christmas Tree. Those are Swarovski Crystals on the tree.
Should get my Magnolia order this week as well as more stamps from Impression Obsession.

Hi everyone, I have just updated my October calendar for Krista's Classes. We don't have the samples as yet but the descriptions are below. If you are interested make sure you sign up quickly as her classes are always full. The times are on my Calendar.

Krista's Classes October 29th to November 2nd, 2009

Come and join in the fun at Heather’s Stamping Haven for fun and fabulous Christmas projects!
1. All-Day Watercolour: We’ll be making 12 fabulous Christmas card projects and of course doing lots and lots of watercolouring. All-new Christmas images from Stamp Barn, Sunshine Designs and Heather’s Stamping Haven will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit! You’ll be receiving full instructions and colour guides for each card (great resource tools for future projects, since they are full of colour combination ideas, mounting techiniques and tons of other little tips and ideas!) as well as lots of personal attention and guidance from Krista. You’ll also get three paintbrushes and a water tray, and as a bonus each student will also receive a special gift of Christmas-y goodies.
2. Christmas Rush (fast and easy card projects): This 2 hour class will feature a mitten-full of quick and simple Christmas cards, tags, money-holders and other paper goodies. We’ll use lots of new (and some old) Christmas images and some simple folds and attachments to make these beautiful projects. No one will ever suspect just how little time these took to create. Of course, full instructions will be provided for each project and each student will also receive a very lovely tin to hold all of their projects, along with a surprise gift.
3. Advent Calendar: We’ll use lots of inks, stamps, cardstock and tons of creativity to put together a very unique and fun Advent Calendar in this 2 hour class. Along with instructions for this project, each student will also receive a special gift bag of Christmas goodies to go along with their calendar.
4. Christmas Ornament: Who doesn’t love to decorate for the holidays? We’ll be using various techniques and products to make our very own Christmas ornaments in this 2 hour class. Each student will also leave with a kit full of some very festive home d├ęcor projects.

I also received some Holly Berry house stamps and I have them in cling. First time in cling for them and I think they will be very popular.

The 12 x 12 glitter cardstock is back in the store. Beautiful Christmas Colours!

The Magnolia stamps have been shipped and we will be getting them soon. So for those of you who wanted the Elephant and the African Sun they will be in this order. Also I have ordered a sweet little hippo name Gloria. I will let you know when they arrive.

Impression Obsession are offering their stamps in cling as well. Here are two new ones that sold out almost immediately, but I have more on order.
