Project Ideas!

 Happy Friday!

I hope you all are excited for the upcoming holiday weekend!  We are looking forward to some family time, pumpkin carving, and, of course, themed family costumes.  

If you have a few minutes to get a little crafting in this weekend, I wanted to share some adorable project ideas with you all for the Simple Stories lines Kate and Ash and Bro and Co!  These project idea sheets are totally free on Simple Stories website - and you can find them both at this link!  You do have to add them to a cart and check out - with no cost - to see the entire sheet.  

I am loving these adorable projects for both lines!






There are a variety of projects here - scrapbook layouts, travelers notebooks, cards, and othe projects that are just right for any amount of time you have to do a little creating!  We have both of these lines in the store if you need to come pick them up!


Now, go get crafty (and Happy Halloween!)

Brand New Product

 Happy Wednesday friends!  

I am so excited to share this new product that is in stock at the store NOW!  This is the brand new Crafter's Machine Tote from We R Memory Keepers.  WRMK has had some of my most favorite new and innovative products on the market in the past few years and this one does not disappoint!  

In this picture, it is shown with the Brother Die Cutting machine.  However, it fits any machine between the sizes of 21"x8.5"x7.25".  From my research, it should fit Silhouette Cameos and Cricut Airs (although a bit of a tight squeeze for the Cricut)!  The bag has a great set of buckles to hold your machine in tight during travel.  And perhaps my favorite part?  The tool card with elastic loops to keep your tools organized while you are out and about!  The card fits right in the size zipper pockets!



I love how handy this is as we pick back up with retreats and crops!  Plus, how awesome would this be as a Christmas gift!  You can grab yours in store now - give us a call or drop in to snag one!


Now, go get crafty!

New Christmas Stamps and Dies!

 Happy Friday!  

Who is ready to kick off their holiday crafting season?  We have got the delivery for you all!  We just got a delivery of all the new pieces and parts from Photoplay's new holiday release!  





These will be the perfect addition to both holiday and fall cards!  I love the stamps with the matching dies, they are the perfect way to add a little extra pizzazz to your holiday cards AND I think it makes them much easier to produce in a larger quantity for all your lucky recipients!  

Check out this video, with a peek at all the releases from Photoplay! 

You can come on in to the store to grab your favorites, order online, or give us a call!

New In Store!

 Hello Friends!


It has been so long since I have typed all that out!  I am so excited to be back sharing some goodies in the store.  We are so excited to have all sorts of great things rolling in on a regular basis!  It has been a busy few weeks with reopening and the Stamp Expo, but we wouldn't have it any other way.  

I wanted to share some new arrivals with you all - just off the delivery truck from Graphic 45!  We have two brand new lines in from them - Woodland Friends and Nature Notebook!  If you are a vintage lover, these are must haves for you! 



The flora and fauna are here with these two and they are great for spring and fall crafting!  If you want to see the full line, check out the You Tube walk throughs from Graphic 45.  


These are in store now so you can come in and browse them today, or give us a call and we can pull your favorite pieces and parts for pick up or shipping.  

We can't wait to see you!

Cutest Free Folio How To!

 Happy Monday everyone!


I hope you guys had a great weekend!  We are still making progress this week on re-opening the store and have lots going on!  I can't wait for you all to see it!


In the meantime, if you need some inspiration, I have it here!  Photoplay is releasing their step-by-step instructions for how to make this precious folio album.  It features their New Normal line that is all about the recent pandemic. 

However, you could totally personalize it to use whatever paper line you are dying to use in a mini-album!  

Actually, click here for instructions....

How cute is this thing!?!  I am loving all the pockets and tags and I love that this would be a great project for an afternoon.  You can get the New Normal paperline from us and the folio bases too!  Send us an email or a message for your favorites!

Now, go get crafty!

August Events!

Happy Monday everyone!

I cannot believe that we are in August and summer time is coming to a screeching halt!  We send my biggest kid to kindergarten next week and I just don't know if I am ready yet!  I am, however, super excited about those back to school pictures :) 

Checking in on the calendar, we don't have much going on, as we are in the throes of construction and rebuilding.  I can't wait for you to see our brand new(ish) store!  Sara has been busy shopping for the little things that are going to make it just absolutely perfect. 

We were expecting Paige Evans to come this month, but unfortunately, in the light of Covid and construction, we are going to reschedule.  Hopefully, in a time when everyone can come scrapbook without worry, mask, or copious amounts of hand sanitizer.  Stay tuned to the blog and Facebook for her new dates!  If you had registered for her classes, you should have recieved an email and a refund for her classes.  We will be doing a new registration for them - with her brand new line coming out soon!

Also, we are having to cancel our August Olympics crop!  The rules on social gatherings and general concern for your health and well-being mean that it is best to postpone for the future.  If you were registered, you should have recieved an email with instructions.  Email the store if you have not gotten one (about two weeks ago).  Maybe we will have a little virtual cropping going on instead! 

And, last, but not least, don't forget to check out our photo challenge!  We are hosting on our Instagram page, but you can check out the prompt list below and follow along - with or without the 'Gram!  Be sure to participate - I would love to feature some entries here on the blog! 


Now, go get crafty!

Free Printables!

Happy Monday everyone! 

I hope you guys had a great weekend!  We went school supply shopping for a brand new kindergartener.  And, yes, I am already planning those first day of school pictures for an adorable layout.

But, before we get started on all the back to school stuff, I wanted to share some free printables with you guys - courtesy of Simple Stories! 

I am loving all these super cute projects using the new line Simple Vintage Coastal!  There are lots of projects - including cards, mini albums, and full layouts.  Plus, this link has a ton of proejcts with other lines as well.  It is definitely worth checking out if you are in need of some inspiration with a Simple Stories line or just some general scrap lifting! 

I would love to see what you guys are creating!

Now, go get crafty!
