Cards for the Gentlemen

I don't know about you, but every time someone asks me to make a card for a man's birthday or other occasion my response is "Do they like flowers? I have lots of flower stamps." Well, that problem is solved with this class. Graphic 45's line "A Proper Gentleman" is perfect for any occasion and this class will point you in the right direction.

Here are some of the cards you will be making in the class:

The class is this Saturday, May 29 at 1pm, and the class fee is $25. You will be making 7, possibly 8, cards in class and leave with lots of ideas, as well.

Give us a call or stop by and sign up today!

And the very popular Silhouette Grass is back in stock!


There are too many to list here so you’ll just have to stop in to see them for yourself :-)

Remember the fabulous new sample board from Northwoods that we posted the other day? Sharon Maranich has scheduled a class with 6 of the cards from that board for Saturday, June 19 at 9am! Photos of the cards and a class description will be on the website tomorrow or you can stop by the store, see the board in person, and sign up for the class while you’re there. It’s beautiful!

The Copic markers have arrived at last and are restocked! Some of you have been waiting on certain colors, so stop in soon and see what a wonderful selection we have. For a limited time if you purchase 6 markers you will receive a cute little carrying pouch that will hold 14 – 16 markers. Perfect for taking some of your markers with you to classes or even on a trip.

We also have restocked the small circle and square Shake It pouches from Impression Obsession. These are self-adhesive shaker card pouches. Just stamp your image, place your shaker inclusions on top and stick the pouch on top! Quick & easy!

2010 Nature Canvas Board Photo_Website Version

You really need to see it in person, photos never do these boards justice. The coloring is fabulous and the glittery goodness doesn’t show up in photos at all. We have all of the stamps shown on the board, which is a good thing because when you see this board you are going to want them! You know you will.

We got a big box from DRS Designs, too. Some great images and verses for Father’s Day and masculine cards, along with lots of other cute stamps. These are just a few of the new stamps(not shown actual size):


Wouldn’t that make a cute card?




The Distress Inks from Ranger are restocked and we have reinkers for the black StazOn and Memento Tuxedo Black back in stock, too. There is a Hero Arts order on the way and we hope to see it this week.

See you soon!
