The new Clear Stamp Storage case from Tim Holtz has finally arrived! We ordered these last summer at the CHA show and they just finally became available. If you have been collecting clear stamps and looking for a way to house them all, here's your chance. The best part is they match with all of Tim's other storage pieces.

Coming soon - reserve your copy today!

I {{{LOVE}}} Stacy Julian. Her book,The Big Picture, was just so liberating for me. She made it OK to scrap my memories out of order, with or without photos; and took away any guilt about being "caught up".
After the release of The Big Picture, she created an amazing online course based on the book which gave students an in depth look at her organization and scrapping system. The course has been offered 3 times at Big Picture Scrapbooking and has sold out everytime. I would love to take the class, but it requires a committment of several months and lots of money.
But now, Stacy has written a new book, Photo Freedom, which is like a blueprint of the course. According to Stacy's message on the website:

"The content of the book and the class is pretty much the same. The way the
content is delivered is quite different. Both book and class share the
information you need to implement and adapt my system. Content in the book is
organized so that it reads well - straightforward and concise. Content in the
class is more in depth and presented in a way that is measured and controlled.
It's like giving a baby a jar of baby food and saying to her "here, eat this" as
opposed to sitting down in front of baby and spoon-feeding the contents of the
jar to her. If you can open the jar and dive in on your own - then the book is
all you need. "

We have ordered this fabulous resource and expect to have it in the store very soon. If you would like us to hold a copy for you (which I hightly recommend), please call or stop in to reserve your copy today.

New Products

I know that it is cold and wintery outside but inside we have been getting in lots of bright and cheery products to help inspire you.

This week we received 2 new lines from Imaginisce: Loves Me & For Peeps Sakes.

Both lines have some very very sweet paper patterns, flowers, rub-ons and the cutest clear stamps that are only $1 each!

To see some examples of projects on their website go to Imaginisce.

Another new arrival is the Bo Bunny "Felicity" line. This is a beautiful collection of florals in reds & greens, but not the Christmasy shades- these are more subdued and will be perfect for Easter and Mother's Day projects.

If you are working on your winter projects, the Jack Frost Line from BoBunny is perfect. In fact this is the line Dawn is using in her Sold Out, Moments Frozen in Time class this weekend.

A New Challenge

I am totally into this idea of taking a photo a day. There are 2 different projects I would like to work on for this year Project 365 and 365 days.

I plan to get started on this today and have created a separate blog for the photos. I will update this nightly ( I hope).
