Update on Dani's class

It is scheduled for 1pm on Saturday, August 13 and the class fee is $15. Please see the Class Schedule page for more details and what you need to bring to class.

New Memory Box Holiday 2013 Collection

Memory Box has introduced a brand new collection of dies for the holiday season and we are pleased to offer you an open catalog order for the next two weeks only (ending August 10). If you place an order from the catalog you must prepay, but if you pay with cash or check you a 15% discount, and if you pay with a credit or debit card you will get a 10% discount (the fees are killing us!).

We don’t have a printed catalog, but you can see the new collection on the Memory Box website. Just write down both the name and number of the items you want and bring it in. The orders will be submitted on August 13 and it usually takes a week or so for the shipment to arrive, providing all of the items are in stock.

We want to send a big Thank You to everyone who attended the Christmas in July Make ‘n’ Takes! We hope you enjoyed them and came away with some great ideas to get started on your Christmas cards. All of the Christmas items are back to regular price now, but there are still other items on sale in baskets and on the shelves around the store.

Here is a sneak peek at the wonderful cards Dani will be featuring in her class on August 17. We don’t have a price or definite time for the class yet, but we will let you know as soon as we do.


The samples will be available in the store soon.



First, Brenda would like to thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. She is doing well and is counting the days until she’s back and good as new!

Saturday is the last day for Christmas in July Make ‘n’ Takes! Deb Waldron will be one of your instructors and she will, of course, be doing an iris folding card - you don’t want to miss this one! The Make ‘n’ Takes start at 10:30am and run until 1:30pm, so mark your calendars. Since this is the last day, all in stock Christmas items will be 50% off - Saturday ONLY!

We have a few new things in the store. The new Hero Arts Mint Julep and Fresh Peach Mid Tone Inks, some new dies and stamps from My Favorite Things, and some that are back in stock.


We have a couple of new classes on the schedule, too.

Saturday, August 3 at 9am, 10am, and 11am, Harriet will be showing you how to make a German Star. The class lasts for one hour and you should be able to make 3 stars. The class fee is only $10! Each class will be limited to 3 students, so reserve your seat today.

Dani has a class featuring masculine cards coming up on August 17 in the afternoon. We will post the details of the class soon.

Lastly, don’t forget to sign up for your spot in the September 21 Used Stamp Sale! We have lots of good spots left, so stop in and reserve yours today! The weather should be pleasant and the shoppers may be more in a mood for holiday stamp shopping, so it could be a win for everyone :-). More info here.

Thank you to each and every one of you who attended our first Christmas in July Make ‘n’ Take.  We had such a good time! Everyone enjoyed the cards and the sales.

This Saturday we will have even more fun with two more lovely cards and more Christmas items, paper, stamps, embellishments  and dies on sale for 40% off. We failed to have our Christmas papers out last week but they will be on display this weekend. 

Also on sale this weekend will be all of the 6x6 paper pads. They will be 30% off throughout the month of July.

Now for the NEW Stuff!

Lots and lots of beautiful Petaloo “Penny Lane” blossoms. Pinks, Soft Grey, Soft Green, Fuchsia, Antique Red and much more. Those who were in Joy’s classes decorating the tissue box will be so happy to see these.

A message from Brenda:

I will be having back surgery for the second time Friday, July 12.  I will be ok! Not to fuss. But with this being said the shop will be on short time from now until at least the end of August. We will only be open on Fridays and Saturdays. I wish there was another way, but this is how it has to be. Please just bare with us and hopefully in seven weeks we can get back up to full speed.

Everyone take care and Happy Stamping!!!
