New Elizabeth Crafts & We R Memory Keepers

Hi Everyone,

Our huge order of Elizabeth Crafts has arrived.  I'll have photos tomorrow after we pull all the special orders.  Believe me, I ordered a lot of glitter!

Cotton Tail from We R Memory Keepers has arrived.  It may seem a bit early to start thinking about Easter, but these pretty pastels are brightening my day.

Our New Design Team wall is featuring all the New Valentine Goodies.

Since we don't have any Valentine creations yet, here are a couple of bits of frame inspiration to tide you thru.   First up is Gina Adolph.  She made this cool decoupaged frame for her daughter for Christmas.  She used one of my favorite techniques, tearing paper.  I love the Little Black Dress papers that she layered in a seemingly random pattern.  The black and cream tones work great with her daughters photo.

Next we have a cute frame from Gina Painter.  Her daughter had her whip up some fun frames for her friends for Christmas.  My daughter loved this one so much, she copied it and gave it to one of her friends for Christmas too.  Gina used the Fancy Pants Beach Babe line.  Using the same paper line that matched her embellishments made this frame a snap to make.  We carry a variety of sizes and shapes of these chipboard frames from ANW Creswood.

It's all about the embellishments.
