Hopefully, you made it safely thru the storm and have power back.

Wacky Wednesday Cards & Free Beer
Come make cards with us on Wednesday and receive a Free Beer (Rootbeer) that is just for mentioning this newsletter.  The kids are back at school. (yippie!) Time for some mommy time.   While you are here, check out the new Christmas lines, Hero Arts stamps and our special order stamp catalog filled with new stamps from all your favorite vendors.    Cards are just $2 each and we will have about 7 different ones out for you to make.

New Hero Arts Christmas stamps are here.

Our main vendor that we order products thru has been busy adding lots of new stamp companies.  They put together all the newest Christmas stamps for your shopping pleasure.  We will have these catalogs available for you to order from.  Orders take about a week to get here if the products are in stock.

We just received a great new travel line from Imaginisce called Bon Voyage.  This line would be perfect for scrapping cruises and has a masciline feeling to it.

We also received the new I-Punch tool.  Here is a video to see what the fuss is all about.

Hurricane Update, New JilliBean Soup, Avocado Arts & Stampendous

Hi Everyone,

I have been watching the weather and it looks like Irene is hitting us a bit earlier than originally projected.   Last I heard, Irene is expected to hit Ocean City around 8 PM.  Which means that we will also be feeling the effects.   Depending on how strong the wind and rain are, we may end up closing early.  We were supposed to be cropping until midnight but I think for safety reasons, we will be ending at 9.  For everyone who is signed up for the crop, you may come in as early as 10:00 AM to start cropping.   Please call us if you would like to cancel coming to the crop so we can know not to expect you. 

Today we received some goodness from the UPS man.  Three new lines of JillyBean Soup arrrived.  The Gnomes are here and adorable. 

Lisa Hetrick created two new stamp sets.  The "My Wish for You" stamp set (ahead of schedule...hooray) and the NEW September Stamp Set "Thankful for You".

We recieved the full line of new Stampendous Fragments.  When these embossing powders are combined with their Mica Fragments, you will get a beautiful encrusted jewel result. 

Here is a video of Fran showing how it is created.
