Out with the old in with the new

As we wind down the final days of 2009 and look forward to a bright new year; we have been busily clearing out old product from the shelves. To be honest, some is not even THAT old, just slow moving, and others - well.... Let's just say they've worn out their welcome.

This is a great time for you to come in and take home some of these bargains.

One of the things I was extremely brutal with was the books and magazines. It was time for them to go. And with the cold weather and possibly another Nor'easter on the way, its perfect timing. Curl up in front of the fireplace while the kids are playing with their new toys from Santa and catch up on your reading!

I also started pulling many of the Christmas stamps for clearance, buy them now and save a ton of money next holiday season.

Don't forget- we have an all day crop planned for New Year's Day and there are still openings. Call us today to register.

Pink Paislee layout

You would think with a name like "Pink Paislee" I would not be using it for a boy's page, right? Not so. I found this layout on 2 Peas and loved it so I had to scraplift it. Mine is slightly different, but the basics are the same. Hopefully this will get you thinking of ways to take the layouts you see and change them up to make them your own.

Facebook Fan Friday

Starting this week- Watch for Facebook Fan Friday at The Inspiration Station; a special deal only available to our fans on Facebook! Spread the word to all of your friends who need a little inspiration!

Crafting with Cricut

It sounds like many people are getting a new Cricut machine for the holidays this year; I have been getting lots of calls about when the next Crafting with Cricut class will be. So the January schedule is up and the first Cricut class of 2010 will be Tuesday, January 5th at 6pm. If you've recently purchased a machine you may want to ask someone to purchase the class for you as a Christmas gift!

This class is open to all levels whether you have the original Cricut or the Cricut Expression. You will bring your machine, cutting mat and a font cartridge (preferably Plantin Schoolbook or George) and I will walk you through the basics of getting started, the special features of your machine and teach you how to get the most out of your machine. A three page handout is included so you don't forget all of the info you've learned in class!

Call to reserve your seat today- (860) 684-2641

For your Inspiration

Are you playing along at home with Tim? I am. Here's my tag from Day One:I did not have the same stamps as he used but I used something similar from Inkadinkado.

And here's what I did for Day 2:

Day 3- A very cool Alcohol Ink Technique:

Since I was in my craft room I decided to do something much simpler as well:

This was done with stamps from the Memory Box. We have these in stock.

Ok, back to creating...
