COPIC Sketch Markers arrived today!!!
I must warn you...they are already flying out the door!

Here are some of the COPIC goodies I received:

  • 216 wonderful colors of Sketch Markers.
  • ALL 24 colors of Spica Glitter pens. Spica pens are prefect for adding a subtle shimmer to any of your papercrafting projects. They are transparent in color - contain pigment based, acid-free - non-toxic archival ink - have a no-clog tip - write over 360 yards (that's twice the length of other writing pens!)
  • Black 0.3 Multiliners. These have a pigment based ink that is waterproof and won’t bleed or smear when used with your COPIC Markers. Great for faux stitching- doodling - fixing stamping lines that were missed - signing cards and more. A must have item!

Great Impressions December Board of the Month is here. Just wait until you see these in person - ADORABLE!

New Magazines:
  • Artists Cafe
  • Somerset Studio Gallery
  • Stampers Sampler
  • Take Ten

Spellbinders Dies. Did you know some of the Spellbinders Dies are being retired? I just received several of them -- so get them while they last!

Gift Idea. Not sure what to buy that special crafter on your list for Christmas? How about a Stamp Works Gift Certificate.

I think that about covers it...for now :)
