Hot off the presses...one of our favorite instructor/designers (Teresa McFayden) has put out quite a tome, filled with inspirational ideas and total eye candy. A must read, must have, must share kind of book (and a great gift idea!)
We wished for a new line of albums from perennial favorite Chatterbox. It took a little time (and we did use up two of our three wishes here) but they came through in a big way with the tactilly tempting Corduroy line...
Chatterbox is proud to introduce their beautiful new line of corduroy and faux suede post-bound albums. They are definitely worth the wait...premium quality to last a lifetime, featuring the gorgeous new Chatterbox Designer Lining. These albums are classic and timeless and would make the perfect Memory Book for any occasion! Now in stock.
Just what we've been waiting for: The newly released Biography 101 album/keepsake boxes from Cosmo Cricket. Not only can you preserve your visual memories, but there's a place to tastefully store your real 3-D keepsake items as well! Best feature? It fits easily on you shelves for a beautiful way to display your album. Our Stationary Show favorite pic (Mary did real good here!)
The new All Rhonna French Twist collection has arrived; complete now, but we're expecting some major shopping to be going on over the weekend. Get this fresh line of colorful right-on materials before they fly away!
Whimsy: A Clearly Wonderful Mini-Album, by Kimberly Kwan They say good things come in small packages, and this project is clearly a fine example of that! Diminutive in size, but large in collage-packed yumminess, this mini-album features vintage inspired papers and some fabulous collage images from Paper Whimsy and Papier Valise. When combined with a treasure trove of vintage ephemera, lace and sparkly goodness, these standard paper goods become simply marvelous! In this class you’ll learn to create your own mini-album using surprising hardware-store supplies and then fill it up with whimsical touches, so in addition to your Basic Supply Kit, please bring an assortment of water colors (I prefer the kind in tubes, but dry “pats” of color will work fine), a blending palette and a small plastic cup to fill with water! Intermediate level class, 2.5 hours.
Basic Supply Kit: scissors, paper trimmer, dry adhesive, fast-drying but very strong wet adhesive, gel matte medium, black marker, pencil, ruler, paper piercer, sharp craft-knife (such as an x-acto), cutting mat, 4-8 disposable foam paint brushes, a few small standard paintbrushes, 1/8" round heavy-duty hole punch suitable to punching through book covers (a Crop-a-Dile works great!), zig-zag deco scissors, an assortment of vintage brown and black inks, any fun background stamps you adore and a bon bon for the teacher. J tee hee!
