Fact: We adore Mr. Norman and his Anna Griffin scrapbooking workshops.
And now for something completely different...On Sunday, September 9th, instead of his usual wonderful two-page layout, Norman will lead us in a fresh 3-D Anna Griffin Box workshop! Yes, we're actually going to create astounding boxes out of ordinary paper...a technique that will serve you well in the upcoming years. Class goes from 1-3, and includes everything (...bring your scissors!!!) and is only $28.
You know when you go into the video or book store, and up by the register they have a shelf featuring employee recommendations? We went to Chevalier Books on Larchmont, and there was a "pick" by our Norman P. Dixon (he can be found there during the week.)
Well, here is a "we recommend" pick from Suzi: Pioneer Mounting Tape. Double-sided, acid-free/archival (blah blah blah...) everything you'd need to stick down your stuff safely and permanently. Yes, Jeannine and Holly love it too. Now in stock.
Art Institute Glitter makes the best vintage-glass glitter hands down. They also make the very best glitter glue out there. We're happy to say that a fresh supply of their special dries-white glue has arrived. This adhesive is especially formulated to show off only the glittered areas, not the colored paper or what-not beneath.
Everyone is going gaga over glaze...Sakura Glaze pens, that is! These perfected pens have special glaze-ink that dries dimensionally, providing an artistic touch to your projects. Fill in areas for a stained glass look, or just write away...we got 'em! Also in: Sakura Souffle pens (for a poufy, chalky tone) and the Midnight set. Wow...color us happy!
Right on the cutting edge of everything, this Kandi Kane crystal applicator will absolutely change your life.
We all like to sparkle up our world, and have spent countless hours gluing down those Swarovski crystals with our Diamond Glaze or other drops of adhesive. Now we just permanently heat set those special stones with the best tool in the world! How wonderful is this magic wand of a tool? Just the very best!
Caveat: You must use the special prepared Swarovski crystals with this tool, as their backs are individually coated with the super-d-dooper strong adhesive which melts down with the tool. Yes, we have those in stock as well!
Some of you still will want to attach things the old fashioned way. For you, we have in a great supply of our favorite "snot sticks" (the Perfect Positioner tool by Westrim.)
Because we're taking off for Labor Day on Sunday & Monday!
This rollercoaster of a summer is winding down this weekend, and we're taking a breather ourselves! Sweetpeas and Snapshots will not be open on Sunday, September 1st, and Monday, September 2nd, for us gals to take a rest.
Mary will be lounging poolside with the fam, Suzi will be heading up to Cambria with Donna and the kids, Tanja is already on the road to Seattle, Kelsey is off to play with friends, and Pauline will be meeting up with lady luck in 'Vegas.
Need some good stuff before then? No worries, we're here during normal hours!
Summer is winding down, and it's time to design those vacation photos inside your fabulous memory albums. We've received a huge variety of travel destination themed papers and embellishments to give your photos the best backgrounds possible. From here to eternity, your summer dreams will last forever!
We were hungry for some fresh papers; fortunately, this batch from Daisy D's arrived to satisfy our scrappin' Jones! You will flip over the rich tones and detailed patterns used in this release. Especially intriguing is the collection of Halloween themed sheets...don't wait, they're going fast!
