We received some Aubergine, Grass, Cerulean and Pool Layering Papers, too, and the Green Hills and Cup O’Joe Mid-Tone inks from Hero Arts are back in stock.

Just one more thing….the Action Wobble Springs are back! They are the perfect way to add just a little animation and action to your cards. They stay flat for mailing and spring into action (no pun intended) when the card comes out of the envelope. They would be great on scrapbook pages, too. At 35¢ each or 10 for $2.50 they are an inexpensive way to jazz up your projects.

We hope to see you soon.

Saturday is Free Make ‘n’ Take Day

See you there!

This just in…

Sizzix Framelits dies! They are similar to Spellbinders dies but they do not emboss, they only cut. The cutting edge is at the edge of the center of the die, making placement over stamped images a breeze! These are the same type of dies that come in the Hero Arts stamp and die sets.

Eight different shapes, from circles to fancy labels. Check them out -

We also have the Metal Adaptor Plate from Memory Box, which enables you to get a cleaner cut on their more intricate dies using whatever die cutting machine you have.

Metal Adaptor Plate approximate size is 5.5" x 8". Use this plate to shim your intricate low-profile, wafer-thin dies. This special stainless steel plate helps support the cutting action and results in better cuts.

These plates may become marked and even dented, but will still continue to be a great tool for easy and precise cutting.

Here’s a link to a video by Dave with more information on how to get better cuts with your intricate dies.

The local conventions certainly need your support, so check out their website and take the short ride up to W-S – you might find just what you have been looking for!
