Today' Make a Card

Tuesdays card of the week is a Sorry card or anything else you want to say because we used a stamp that says "sending a hug" come and enjoy making these cute 3D flowers.


Just wanted to share one of the special flowers made by Susan Tierney Cockburn. It was a purple Sweet Pea that matched Ruth's outfit perfectly!

If you'd like one of these punches, come in and let Lila know. She is ordering more but many are already spoken for.

Re-Grand Opening.

It was a great day! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the store. I know I had fun. I hope you all did to!

Do you remember how small the other space was? It worked. There was plenty of product there. We had crops and fun. The store grew and more customers came in. Oh my! What a difference this new space has made! Customers are coming in more often. Crops are growing. We see new faces almost every day! There were lots of things to celebrate yesterday!

We had some great Guest Designers come in. Elisa Kammerdiener is a Designer with Clear Scraps. She showed us how to emboss and decorate acrylics. There was a lot of excitement as everyone got their own piece of shaped acrylic to emboss and play with. Her designs are beautiful! Elisa is now part of our store Design Team. She has designed March's Mini-Book. You'll want to sign up for that one. Then just wait til you see what she is designing for April!! Everyone will want this one! Make sure you check out all the acrylics that Lila now has in the store. You can do some amazing things with them

Aren't these flowers beautiful? They are made with Bazzil paper and punches.

Susan Tierney Cockburn is a flower artist. She designs for Punch Bunch. The flowers she creates look so real you want to pick them up and put them to your nose to check their fragrance. She uses a variety of punches and some chalks or markers for most of her flowers. Everyone was in awe and the punches just flew off the shelves. She also has 2 books out. We sold all we had yesterday, but will be getting in more. Let Lila know if you want one so she can make sure to order enough. There are still some samples int he store so you can see how beautiful her flowers are. I'm hoping we can invite her back for another event.

And of course when there are babies, everyone wants to take a moment to hold them.

Katri had a lot of fun doing a Make and Take. We made lapel pins using chipboard and the new outline stickers. They turned out beautiful!

It really was a fun day. Thank you to all who worked hard to get the store in shape, helping with Make and Takes and making the day successful!

Tuesday's Card

Here is a card that can be used for many purposes "You're Simply the Best" is what it says on the outside and you decide why they are the best, maybe because they did something nice for you or even someone else that you saw them do. Maybe it is their birthday and you want them to know they are the best. Inside I put " because:" and you can fill in why. This little card is just the one to keep in your stash till you need it. Only $1 to make includes the envelope.
