New Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs & Graphic45 French Country

Elizabeth Craft Designs, who brought you those wonderful stickers to use with the Glitter Ritz now has her own line of dies, and they are gorgeous! Brenda recently took a class featuring the new dies, adhesive back felt, and Shimmer Sheetz. She made a beautiful card with them:


So here they are! Take a look -

Some of you have been waiting on the new Graphic45 French Country Collection. Well, it’s here! We have the 12 x 12 paper, and 8 x 8 paper pads are coming soon.


Harriet Wood has a new class coming up soon – details and photos coming in the next post, so stay tuned!



First of all, we want to remind you all about our Annual Used Stamp Sale, which is coming up on Saturday, May 4. This year we are renting spaces instead of letting you drop off your items. Spaces are $20 for a 9’ wide space in the parking lot (about the size of a parking space) and $25 on the porch. You need to bring your own tables, chairs, change, etc., and you keep all proceeds from your sales – we don’t take a percentage, just the space rental fee.

There are several advantages to doing it this way – all in your favor. You can package your items any way you like - put together bundles of paper or stamps, etc. Also, when the crowd thins out and sales slow down, you have the opportunity to discount your remaining items for quick sale. You are not required to stay till the sale is over, you can leave whenever you like. We think the sale this year is going to be very successful! Several people have said they aren’t planning on participating because they feel they don’t have enough items to warrant setting up a table. Well, maybe a couple of you could get together and share a table, share manning the table, and take turns shopping. Just a suggestion :-) We do require that you limit your sale items to craft-related items – we don’t want it to become a garage sale!

Now, for a couple of new things that have just arrived…

Some new Hero Arts:

Kraft Notecards and Envelopes (8 in a package)


We also have some of the new Mid-Tone Inks – Raspberry Jam, Forever Green, Red Royal, Cornflower, Passion Flower, Orange Soda, Navy, Pale Tomato, and Charcoal, along with the new Soft Cantaloupe.

A couple of new permanent adhesive tape runners from PLUS in 1/3” x 26’ and 1/4” x 26’. Refills are available.

Clean-cutting, honeycomb-dot pattern
The newly developed tape pattern consist of a series of honeycomb dots which allow the tape to “break” more easily and more cleanly when you finish applying a line of glue tape.
Glue tape adheres firmly to the paper
The flexible head allows you to apply even pressure to the paper as you roll out the glue tape, resulting in a consistent and controlled application.
