Sun-sational Saturday!

I though I would share a couple pics from Saturday's Simply Sun-sational class. These ladies had a blast!

I wish I could have been in there stamping the morning away with them - but I was VERY busy in the store with the make-n-take. was the 20th - and you know what that means...20% OFF DAY. It was a busy busy day!

Only a couple more weeks till A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA! Have you reserved your spot in those classes yet? The A Muse News Blog has some contests going on right now as we countdown to the big event. The new images being released by A Muse Artstamps at this event are top secret. There are no class samples on display...but you are going to LOVE these new Winter Holiday stamps!

Shop News

I've got LOTS of goodies in the shop!

Copic Markers. Yep...that's right...I have them back in stock. But you better hurry and get 'em...because these sets actually FLY off the shelf! LOL!

Speaking of Copic...the Spica Glitter Pens are back in stock too. Did you know these pens are made by Copic? They are prefect for adding a subtle shimmer to any of your papercrafting projects. They are acid free, archival, and pigment based and last twice as long as any other glittery pen. I absolutely love these pens!

Everyone has been waiting...and waiting...and waiting (lol) for the Inky Antics Gamsol Kits. They are finally here!!! WOOHOO! These sets come with a wonderful bottle of Gamsol, Blending Stumps and Instructions. Amazing things happen when you use this stuff with your colored pencils!

NEW stamps just in from Magenta...

...and Impression Obsession.

Are you looking to add more wonderful Flower Soft colors to your collection? How about the Summer mix. I have lots of other colors too.

Back in stock -- Scor-it Boards. But guess what else I have....(drum roll) Scor-it Mini Boards! The PERFECT size to fit in your craft tote!

I will also have the Scor-Pal back in stock very very soon!! And keep you eyes open for upcoming Scor-Pal classes :)

Speaking of classes...there are a few spots left in these classes.

Iris Folding w/Ribbon with Ken Pesho

Main Street U.S.A. with Carol Maguire

Take a stroll down Main Street to look in the windows: a bakery, café, fabric shop, or just sit on the front porch. So many creative possibilities! Check out what Carole has done with them. These cards are adorable.
