Fun new stamps from Inkadinkado

With a name like Inkadinkado you know the stamps will be fun! I know it's early, but the Halloween stamps are just too cute. We also got in a few Autumn styles and Christmas/Winter - all in affordable clear sets.

A special guest from the Passport Program

Meet Jake. Jake joined in our Kids Kamp class last Tuesday when he stopped in on the Passport to Summer. While he did a little stamping his owner, Judi, shopped and then he was good enough to pick up the tab!

He is a very large doberman, but honestly could not have been a sweeter dog. He is a FEMA certified service dog who is trained in disaster relief. He came to visit us all the way from New Jersey and has been to stores in several states along the East coast. His visit came as quite a surprise, but his personality won us over!

Just a sample of some of the beautiful cards Donna has planned for Christmas in July.

Lousy weather for Fourth of July

The weather this weekend is aweful; certainly not the picture perfect July 4th we had hoped for... But the good news is - you can come to The Inspiration Station and get lots of fun stuff to scrapbook with and maybe make a few cards!

Lots of people have been coming in with their passports and we expect to see a lot more this weekend. I mean, if you can's play in the sun and cook burgers & dogs on the grill- you might as well SHOP right! Yeah, that's what I think!

The summer is underway

Our passport to summer program kicked off yesterday (July 1st) and already we are meeting lots of new people! We expect to see many "traveler's" this holiday weekend - but please remember we are CLOSED Friday, July 4th; I would hate to have someone drive a distance to be disappointed!!

We wanted to be fully stocked for all of the people who will be coming through with their passports and boy, are we! We have so much new stuff we have had some new papers sitting on the counter for almost a week with nowhere to put it. Good thing we have our Dollar Days sale coming up next weekend-maybe we can make some room! One thing that I think may be gone before the sale is the new batch of $1 clear stamps from Studio G. They came on on Monday and the people in classes have been scooping them up by the handful.

Our Kid's Kamp started last week and the group made some very cute beach ball albums. Next week's project will be a Christmas in July themed container. Please register your child by the Friday prior to the class they will attend; Donna makes up the kits over the weekend. Children ages 7 and older are welcome to attend.

Our Christmas in July classes are filling quickly, particularly the cards classes. I highly recommend that you sign up immediately if you want to attend. We are running both the card class and the Deck the Halls class on Sunday, July 13 so you can save gas money by attending two classes in one day. The Deck the Hall class will be amazing and includes a Holly Berry House Stamp to take home so you will be able to recreate your projects as gifts. Space is very limited.
