Did I miss something?

Yes. I know that I did not send out the store newsletter this week. Sorry- I was away for two days at a training for a community wrap around initiative (not related to work).

Of course just because I wasn't in the store doesn't mean there wasn't stuff happening. Donna has been inundated with students for her Quick & Easy Christmas cards classes. Once again she had to add another date and we had to order in more supplies. The new date is Monday, November 16th at 6pm. There is a different Christmas Card class on Sunday, Nov. 29th which will be just as amazing but with different designs. One sample is show in the previous post.

I have also added another date for the Copic Christmas Class. The class on Nov. 15th is SOLD OUT so a new date has been added; Friday, Dec 4th at 6pm.

Some beautiful stuff arrived this week as well. The new Bo Bunny Snowy Serenade line is gorgeous with all of the papers glittered and glazed. There is even a kit for an amazing chipboard album that includes all of the materials.

Memory Box has sent us a new Winter collection that has some gorgeous sample cards with it. In fact, Donna will be recreating one of the cards in her Holiday Cards class.

Don't forget about the great Scrapbooking classes we have scheduled as well. Dawn has a beautiful fall layout class this Wednesday, Nov 4th as well as an adorable "Memories" mini album on Nov 11th. Go to the website to see the great photos!

Martha Stewart Punches back in stock!

For those of you who have been waiting, the Martha Stewart Branch punch and Icicle Border punch are back in stock. We use the branch punch on just about every project- it is so versatile. It can be made into a wreath, a Christmas tree, garland and more. Punched out of brown it makes great twigs for fall cards. I used it on this card as a swag.

I haven't had a chance to make anything with the Icicle Border yet, but I've seen some great cards using it not only for icicles but as frosting on a cake and dripping paint. Very cool stuff.

A Copic Christmas

Changes to our class schedule

This week we have been crazy-busy (Donna's card classes always do that to us!). But we did need to make a couple of schedule changes.

First off, I am very sad to say that the DeNami Pop Up class had to be cancelled. The instructor had to leave the company and there is no one available to replace her. DeNami Designs has offered to provide kits to the students who would like them. Please let us know this week if you would like one ($25 ea).

On a positive note, all of the Christmas card classes have been a huge success and we have had to add additional dates to accommodate everyone.
The Copic Christmas class on Nov 15th has only one spot left so a new date has been added, Friday, Dec 4th at 6pm.
Most of the seats in the last Quick & Easy Christmas cards class (Nov. 5th) are taken but 2 or 3 more people can still get in if you call this week.
If you are not able to get into that class, the November Card Club classes will also be Christmas theme. So that is another option. I hope to get samples for that class to show you in the next few days.

So Much New

I can't believe how much new stuff came in on Friday. I guess that's what happens when I take a day off! To be honest, I'm not sure I even had a chance to see half of it when I was in for class on Sunday.

I know some JustRite stampers came in, I saw a few of the Memory Box stamps and as I was walking out I caught a glimpse of the new Christmas line from Pink Paislee!

Thursday the new Christmas line from Little Yellow Bicycle came in. I'm not quite sure where we put it with all of the fabulous Christmas papers we already had...

Debra from DeNami Designs will be coming back to The Inspiration Station on November 7th to teach the most adorable pop up cards ever- Sign up today so you don't miss out!
