Posted by scraplovers in Uncategorized.

Oh it’s Friday and we are feeling groovy…

We got TWO big boxes via FedEx today filled with all of the goodies that we got at CHA…this along with a new customer we were inspired to give away a stamp set!!

The set we are giving away is the most darling stamp from the new Frightful line from Little Yellow Bicycle…To win this darling stamp, just post on this thread and tell us what your favorite stamp company is!!  We will select one lucky person from the hat!

not a stamp store? who says? July 25, 2008

Posted by Andrea in Scrap Lovers at A Work of Heart.

Chris and I laugh and say “we’re not a stamp store” every time we buy more stamps to bring in.  Well, we might as well admit our weakness.  All these companies are coming out with such stinkin’ cute stamps it is nearly impossible to resist.  Here is my latest love:

MSE Stamp Set

So, while we keep denying that we are a stamp store, we keep buying them, you keep buying them and they cycle continues 😉

I geeked out! July 20, 2008

My heros!

I'm in trying to absorb some of their creative genius 🙂

I’m really not one of those people who regularly geek out when they see celebrities but OMG look who I found crafting at CHA!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Creative Juice (a DIY Network show) Cathie and Steve are the hosts of this totally inspiring show. I had to get a picture to show my kids cause we all watch it together to get ideas for projects to do in the studio. It was a blast making a fun and spooky monster from a recycled gatorade bottle. Steve did the messy part by applying glow-in-the-dark mod podge to cheesecloth to mummify the bottle. I made some funk-a-licious pink and orange hair with fiber and yarn. I even styled some bangs, braided the locks and added googly eyes. What a fun project! Can’t wait to reproduce it. What a fun recycle, re-use, re-purpose project.

Class with Claudine…yes, you can be jealous! July 17, 2008

Chris and I woke up at the crack of dawn to take a Mixed Media Collage class with Claudine Helmuth this morning.  Look at the darling projects we made with her new acrylic paints by Ranger.  Yes, of course we ordered all the new paints and mediums!  You’re all going to LOVE them!!

Off to see more stuff.

Are you ready to experience some holiday fun? Next week we are celebrating Christmas in July. Each day we are offering special holiday themed project classes.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of getting a jump start on the season is exciting! We can get you motivated with fun projects and great ideas. Plan to experience a low stress “handmade holiday”.

Here is the lineup for the week.

Sunday: 5pm Holiday Cardmaking

Tuesday: 7pm: Outrageous Ornaments (these make great hostess gifts)

Wednesday: 7pm: Holiday Planner

Thursday: 7pm: Home Calendar (great gift idea and easy to customize for multiple recipients)

Friday: 6 pm: Holiday Gift Making Craft Rave (again, it is great to make a stockpile of personal handmade gifts!)

Chris and I are in Chicago at the pre-show to Summer CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) We’re getting in the holiday mood by purchasing our end of year inventory for the store…..I’ll try to post sneak peeks this week!

Hello from Chicago! July 14, 2008
