Flat Lisa celebrated Christmas in July
Flat Lisa loves any excuse to have fun and when she heard that some of our favorite customers were celebrating Christmas in July, she invited herself to join in on the fun.  Here are the ladies who she partied with out in Hagerstown.  In the front row left to right is Lori Robbins, Flat Lisa, Dotty Hughes, Back row left to right, Darlene Ader, Suzanne Raymond and Amy Kendall.

Flat Lisa had to get right in front for the celebration cake. She really likes chocolate.

Ready to blow out the candles with Darlene. 

I didn't know Flat Lisa likes to climb Christmas Trees.

Yippie Wine.  Wow, Flat Lisa that is a lot of wine for you.

Enough Wine!!!  She really can't handle too much wine.

Now she is trying on Christmas ornaments....

How do you like me now?

Oh, Flat Lisa.  

Did somebody say Chocolate?

Riley Loves Flat Lisa too!!!!

A usual Flat Lisa got all wrapped up.  She said that she was sticky from the candy canes and it made the bead trim stick to her. Sure, whatever you say......
Big Thanks to Suzanne Raymond for taking Flat Lisa in and  treating her to a fun Christmas in July weekend with the girls.  Luckily, Flat Lisa's smile helps her get away with all her silliness.

Change of Plans - Where is the Box? Free Die Cuts & New Basic Grey

Hi Everyone,

Our What's in the Box? premiere has changed into Where is the Box?  Flat Lisa is hot on the trail of the missing box and should be able to track it down by Friday.  She promised to talk to every UPS man she can find.  

As some of you already know, we received all the dies and the card samples.   However, the box with the stamps is not going to arrive until Friday.  I have one set of stamps out to sell and I will have the catalogs available for pre-sales.   They also released a whole new catalog of items that are not in either box.  Unfortunately, I can not show the new catalog images online for two weeks, so hopefully you can come to the store to see them. We will be placing this new order on Monday.  Memory Box has promised to ship these items quickly.

To help ease your sadness at not being able to get your hands on all the stamps tomorrow, anyone who pre-orders even one of the new stamps, will receive a Free pack of die cuts made from the brand new dies.  We will have these packs available thru Sunday for all pre-orders of the new stamps.  
New Basic Grey Clippings.  We will be checking this in first thing tomorrow but you can buy it right from the shopping cart.

CHA Review

Tracy and Flat Lisa had a blast seeing all the fantastic products and Tracy says "I wish I had an endless budget"!  So....just wait til you get a

 load of what's in store (in more ways than one)! 

Join us Tuesday, July 24th starting at 10:00 am for a look at what will be arriving in the store over the next few months! 

Here is a little Memory Box teaser.
Wacky Wednesday Cards
It wouldn't be a Memory Box premiere if we didn't have Memory Box cards for you to make.  I took two photos of the first card so you can see the white embossing on the card.  The Halloween card has a fun surprise inside.
Lisa Halstead also made this adorable card for you to make.
 We have some fun new School papers from We R Memory Keepers.

The SMASH crop on Saturday night was so much fun.  Gina Adolph had a fun project using Tattered Angels and wooden drink stirrers.  Kim Piazza actually put her journaling on the colored sticks.

Flat Lisa wanted to make the demo but had a little bit of trouble using the Crop-a-dile.
She loves the Tattered Angels spray.
I have no clue how she managed to get it all over herself.
She got completely tangeled in the ribbons she was trying to tie on the stick.

Once Flat Lisa saw Brent's fun seashell album, she decided to dress in her mermaid costune.

Once everyone saw that Flat Lisa was in the house, the fans lined up for photos.  here she is with Margie Weaver.

Alison Brawdy and Danielle Rickwalder got Flat Lisa's autograph.
