Hi Everyone, the new Copic Coloring Guide 2 has arrived. It comes with a CD so you have the same images that are in the book to practice your coloring.

I am hoping to get my Memory Box Dies and new Spellbinder dies in next week as well.

I will be carrying Tim Holtz Distress Markers and will be offering them in the set (all 37) for $114.99 or you will be able to buy them singly for $3.49.
Krista Schneider will also be doing a class with the Distress Markers when she comes in June.
The date of her classes have changed, and she will be here on
May 31st, June 1st-2nd-3rd-4th and we will add other days if needed.
Here is a link to her site where she outlines her classes and projects. Give the store a call if you want to register.

Hi Everyone, as you all know I do not post personal information on my blog, it is used to tell you what's new and what's happening at my store. Well today I am making an exception.

On February 14th my grandson Ryan was born. What a Valentine's Day Gift! He was 3 weeks early but weighed in at 6lbs and is doing just fine. Stacey and Simon are thrilled.
My daughter Stacey had a very rough time but hopefully is on the mend.
The store was closed yesterday but will be open for business today.

Thanks to everyone for thier understanding and support. Heather (aka Grandma)

Hi Everyone, I received 3 new colours of
Shimmer Sheetz and just had to use one of them!
This one is called "Fire Opal" and because it is so shiney
I had to angle the picture so I wouldn't get a reflection.
I also used the Poppy Stamps Madison Window large
and Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder.

Hi Everyone, two amazing classes coming on Saturday
February 11th. In the morning from 10:00 to 12:30 we
have Hero Arts and Sizzix Dies.

"In this class we will be using some beautiful new Hero Arts stamps - and we will explore the uses of versatile Sizzix and Hero Arts stamps and die cut sets. We will be stamping, sponging and colouring to create a non-traditional Valentine card, suitable for any sweetheart!"

Then in the afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00 we have this wonderful card, bookmark and ATC.

"Master boards are large pieces of artwork used to create many small ones. There are many ways to do a master board, from collage, to painting or illustration, to stamping. In this class you’ll create your own master board using a wide variety of stamps, ink and paint. Once we’ve built up a beautiful, textured, colourful master board, we will use it to make a greeting card, bookmark, and artist trading card (ATC)."

Give a call to the store (613)726-0030 to register.
