New Memory Box Stamps

The 2010 What's in the box program from Memory Box has finally arrived. Not sure how it got diverted but it's here now and the images and cards are gorgeous! Donna will be using many of the new stamps in her Quick & Easy Cards class in February, but here are a few sample cards from the Memory Box Design Team.

Making changes

Change is good.
No, really it is. It gets us out of our routine and makes us pay attention, notice new things and think in new ways. I know, for many of you change is hard; but it is exciting at the same time. So we are making some changes. Nothing major; just moving the store around to (hopefully) make things flow a bit better.

For a long time we have wanted to create a section to hold all things Tim Holtz; Ranger products, Idea-ology products, Stamper's Anonymous etc. The problem is, of course, that Tim has a very eclectic style and he tends to use a bit of everything. Hmm, now that I think of it- that's kinda how our whole store is... Anyway, he has put him name on a boatload of products and now with his upcoming release from Sizzix there will be even more. As anyone who has ever been into The Inspiration Station knows, we don't have any "extra" space; we use every inch. So it time to do what we do best - Get Creative!!!

It's amazing to me how we always manage to find/make more room for things when we need to. Of course, we really do NOT want to talk about the back hallway... Yeah, that place that we call the "Clearance Section". Right now it looks more like a rummage sale! Donna has suggested that we have a little indoor "parking lot sale" to try to move it all out. I think she may be onto something. Now, I just need to find a weekend when we could do it - and soon!

But I'm rambling... the point is, we have been moving things around and it may be hard for you to find things for a while. We apologize for the inconvenience but in the long run I think you will be very pleased. If you need something, please ask and we'll do our best to locate it!

Finally some samples from Donna

Here we go I finally got the pictures of Donna's Card Club classes from January and February. Remember, this is just a sample- she always makes 4 card in each class and you get to keep the featured stamp! What a deal!

January classes feature a Winter Wonderland set of greetings and snow flakes.

February Classes feature "Owl always love You" by Memory Box.
