New goodies

Because I don’t have anything scrappy made to show you today, I thought I would give you a few sneak peeks of things that are at the store, just hiding behind closed doors until we get them listed on the shopping page.


New colors for this tote - these totes are the best and on my *must have* list.

extra-long-toteNew size for this popular tote - extra long - a trimmer would fit perfectly into the middle slot.


I love this big tote … 10.5″x 20.5″x 11″ … it would hold so much stuff.


snapshot-albumJust a few of the many cool new albums.


A mix of wood and burlap.

laugh-wall-wordOne of the cool new wall words.


Cool new shadow boxes in different shapes and sizes.


Awesome window shadow box - can’t wait to see one of these done up.  Loving all of the *stuff to alter* that has arrived.



Lots and lots of different tapes.

Lots of things to drool over!  We will work hard to get these things and more up on the shopping page.  Hope you are enjoying a fabulous long weekend!

Birthday Banner

This week we had the sweetest gal come in the store and she was looking for a birthday banner.  I have a banner hanging on the wall in the store, and she said she wanted one similar to it.  At first I thought she wanted to make it herself, but as I was helping her pick out papers, I realized that she wanted us to make it for her.  I was very pleased that she had the confidence in us, especially when this was for her son’s first birthday party … and she wanted to keep it and hang it in on his bedroom wall.


She told us that he had received a little vintage airplane as a gift, so she wanted the banner to focus around traveling, vintage airplanes and colors for a little boy.  If possible, she wanted a few vintage airplanes to put up on the wall for added decoration.


Now I had no vintage airplanes in the store at all, so I called on my good friend Barb to ask her if she could help me out and cut me a few with her silhouette.  I gave her some different papers and off she went that day returning with these vintage planes the next day.  Aren’t they awesome!!!


I made a pattern for the banner pendant, cut the chipboard backings and patterned paper and handed those pieces over to Chantel.  I had a few appointments that day, so Verena, another good friend, came in to help wherever she could.  I must say that we all had a lot of fun giving input for the final result.


Verena had a brilliant idea to put propellers on the planes, but low and behold, shortly after she thought of that idea, she also had to run off … so it was very fortunate for us that Anne, another great friend, was there and quickly jumped in to find a propeller that would work.


A total group project … I love how it turned out … but I must say … the very best part was texting a few pictures of the final banner to the Mom to tell her it was ready to be picked up.  Her reply made it all so worthwhile …

Ooooo WOW …. I am amazed.  You have done an awesome job.  Thank you so much.  I love it.

It’s days like this that make me realize how blessed I am to be doing the job I do.

A gift for baby

What do you buy to welcome a new baby?  I often struggle with this decision and wonder whether it should be diapers, clothes, blankets … books, toys?  What will they get the most use out of?  What do they need?


Clothes are so cute, some of them quite irresistible … but what size, what color, outfit, sleepers … what to choose?  When buying items for a new baby there are many things to consider … and often I just really can’t decide what the new parents would like/need for their new little one.


But, after all of my thinking and contemplating, I have finally figured it out … a gift card.  Of course, why on earth have I never thought of this before?


And with this dilemma finally figured out … I knew exactly what I was going to get busy and make.  I also knew that Echo Park’s Bundle of Joy New Addition papers would be absolutely perfect.


One of my favorite things to create … my little gift pockets … cute as can be all decorated up.  One pocket with a cute gift card envelope and one pocket with a decorated glassine bag ready to hold a welcome baby card.


These were so much fun to make … the paper and colors are perfect … and I am so pleased how they turned out.


Thanks for stopping in today, I hope you are enjoying your weekend … and hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods.
