1. You sign up for a group
2. Come each month on swap day with 1 card you created for each member of your group and tell them how you did it
3. Swap cards with everyone in your group
4. And make the card created by your staff member, EASY!!

Today ...we are featuring Charlene's class - a daytime group -- meeting the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 11am. Check out the first project she has for all of you!

Call the store today to register for the October Card Swap on October 19th

A Challenge

In this week's e-mail we posted a challenge: take a photo (perhaps one that you have been waiting for the "Perfect" idea) or group of photos and create your project.
I am working on a picture of John and Joey from hockey and I am getting pretty excited about the outcome. It feels really good to take 45 minutes to myself and create.
So get your pics, gather your supplies or run into the store and get your project done!!!
Post your finished project on Facebook and you could win this week' prize!! ~Marget

Mother's Day is just around the corner

Those of you who know me well, know that things usually get done a little last minute, which is why I am so excited that I have one of my Mother's Day gifts done (minus the pictures)! I love these new printers trays from 7 Gypsies and just knew that 5 grandkids would fit perfectly for display in my mother-in-laws kitchen. Shhh! Don't tell her I want it to be a surprise

Thank You Ella!!!

One of our long time favorite people was in the store this morning and curious about the new self-adhesive glitter paper. So we started to play...and play and play! This stuff is amazing! It will go through every die cut machine and it even works great with punches! We used the purple glitter paper with the Fiskars floral border punch and Fantastic!! So, not only does it cut great but I am NOT covered in glitter, it's not on my hands and it's definitely not sticking to my die!!
Thanks Ella for the play date!

Yummy New Product from Silhouette!

It is fair to say that it was easier to make the shirts with the heat transfer paper than to get the boys to sit for the picture!
This was so easy and so fun. I just used my silhouette to create my text and image, cut it out and ironed it on.
This new heat transfer paper comes in lots of great colors and flat or flocked. I chose the flocked, of course and the shirts are adorable (even on the first try). The possibilities are endless, you can use the heat transfer on any fabric project, including quilts, home decor (monogram pillows) personalized hats, baby gifts, shirts for kids, my head is spinning with fun project ideas !

Stay tuned and watch for my next project that Jen and I are working on with the rhinestone kit!! Can everyone say BLING!!

My Pictures are Saved!!!

So, I have been talking to my husband/tech guy about my paralyzing fear of losing my pics that are store on the computer. I started researching an external hard drive, on-line back up companies and I have found the solution. The Picture Keeper is a USB drive that automatically backs up my pictures every time I plug it in. It also allows me to take the drive to CVS or Meijer to print pics for some instant gratification.

The Picture Keeper is PC and Mac compatible and comes in three sizes:
4,000 photos $34.99
8,000 photos for $$69.99
16,000 photos for $99.99

Monday, February 22, 2010


OK, so we can choose to be irritated by the snow day or take advantage of some great photo opportunities with the kid-lets. Granted I am not going to throw the babies out there, but I am going to sneak out back and get some great shots of Joey and the posse building a snow fort or sledding. So get your camera, get out there and send me some of the pics that you get!

Quickutz Club meets tonight and tomorrow night so be sure to call and get your name added to the project list and while you are there get some Quickbucks to save big on your March purchase. We just got a QK shipment in at the end of last week, so check out the January release and some old favorites.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I love New Years, it is definitely one of my favorite holidays, all of the hope and excitement for the future. So many of us are setting goals and making resolutions to make 2010 a fabulous year. I am going to start 2010 with a "State of our Family" layout using the January page map. This is my way of creating a starting point in my scrapbook. I have loved looking back at these pages and seen how much my family changed and with the addition of our twin boys, I can't wait to get to work.

Why not get busy creating your own "State of the Family" layout using the page map and enter to win an American Crafts gift basket of product and be featured online and in the store. Stay tuned and I will post my layout next week for a little inspiration!!
