This is the last chance to sign up for a spot at our Customer Tag Sale. Participants can pick up their labels any time Friday, Sept. 5th. Tag sale goods must be dropped off on Friday, Sept. 19th and unsold items must be picked up by Tuesday, Sept. 23rd. Anything not picked up by that date will be donated.
Dawn & Donna have added some awesome new classes to the schedule, you should check them out. Dawn will be doing a monthly class that focuses on using up your scraps! Donna, of course, will be doing fun stuff for Halloween with a Halloween Treats class and a separate Halloween Card Class. Both of my Cricut classes are just about full so I will look to see about adding another one in the future. If you are interested, let me know whether you prefer weekend or weeknight.

Never content to sit idle, we have already started planning for the next event, our Customer Tag Sale. This time YOU have a chance to clear out your older stock! Yep, for just $5 you can rent a space at the Tag Sale to move out your old supplies. Every penny you sell will be given to you in the form of Craft Currency so you can spend it on brand new stuff here at the Inspiration Station. It's a win-win for everybody! Last tag sale some people sold over $200! Space is limited so register now.
Kids Kamp is done for the summer and we are revamping it for the fall. Beginning with our next Kamp (Columbus Day), we will split the class into two groups; one for ages 7-10 and one for 11+. This will allow us to offer more advanced projects to the older kids without overwhelming the younger ones.

This week we have received the new Scenic Route Sonoma line (that I made my Family page with) along with a bunch of super cool, and affordable chipboard. New Halloween stamps (yes, more) from Inkadinkado came in. Some of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders and the Cricut Storybook cartridge arrived yesterday. The Graphically Speaking cartridge came in too, but it's sold out already! We are expecting the Cosmo Cricket Halloween line on Thursday and some new $1 clear stamps from Studio G should be arriving any day.
Our 3rd annual Parking Lot Sale is scheduled for this Saturday, August 16. Please pray that we don't have rain that day! We do not have a rain date planned so if it rains we will be bringing everything inside...and it gets really crowded when that happens! The sale is on from 11am-5pm. This is the time that we sell off our old samples, overstocks and more. Prices are below cost on most items and all sales are final.

I know many of you have purchased the Cricut in the past year and many of you have not even taken it out of the box!! Shame on you! Let that bug out and put him to work. Everyday I answer questions from Cricut owners on how to use their machine; so in September I will offer a class in "Crafting with Cricut". You will bring your machine, cutting mat and one cartridge and I will walk you through the basics (like setting the proper pressure and depth) and then we will check out some of the extra features that really make this a fabulous machine. This class is for the original Cricut or the Cricut Expression.

By request, I am looking to add an evening class in as well. What the newsletter for updated information.
Here is a layout I did using the new Scenic Route papers I have on order (love it when reps give me samples ahead of time!).
I scraplifted the layout from BH&G scrapbooks etc. magazine and used the Sonoma line, some prima flowers and my cricut home accents cart to cut the title.
