Memory Box and Mini Distress Ink Pads

Memory Box Tanglewood Frame Die 99009

Hello my friends. Been too long since our last post.  I must confess this week was a bit of a wash with the kids off from school… managed to keep up with orders and shipments but that was just about all. Good news for all of us is the kids go back to school on Monday and we have so much in store for the coming weeks.

For today I announce I finally added some Memory Box to t he storefront as well as the adorable Mini Distress Ink Pads from Ranger.  In a nutshell, all 48 pre-2015 colors are now available individually as a 1″ cube ink pad. Great to bring to crops or dabble with some fresh new colors.  Personally I have ever single Distress Ink pad and reindeer as I love this color palette. We also have the Distress Spray Stains in stock. You will be seeing these little cuties pop up in some kits real soon.  We will be sure to make them available as add ons as we know so many of you may already have the colors being used but if you don’t, they will be available with ease.

Memory Box… these are the best dies on the market that I have tried so far (we are planning on ordering another company from the UK that has been toted as “the best” but since I haven’t tried them yet, I can make my claim here and now). 🙂

Anyway.. Memory Box dies are intricate and cut with perfect precision. Here’s a look at just a few we added…

Coming up in the next few weeks…. A new kit from Gerry van Gent that had me in awe.  Kits from Elena Tretiakova, Olga Heldwein and Gabrielle Pollacco.  In addition we will have Frank Garcia’s Archivist Album as seen on Live With Prima available as a kit.  And lastlly an album kit I am finishing up featuring Graphic45’s Time to Flourish Line- need to find time to type up some directions. Will get there soon – I hope. 🙂

Thanks for checking in.

Autumn by Adrienne Ford & Memory Box

As promised…. Adrienne Ford is back with another layout, Autumn.  This beautiful layout highlights all the things wonderful about the fall season.  Adrienne uses Silks from Luminarte to create a unique background that blends spanish moss, flowers and leaves to create this effect.

When you purchase this kit you get the materials and access to an online video to follow along. In addition, we’ve included a few extra pieces so you can crate another layout. Here’s a sample of mine…

In addition to Adrienne’s new kit, we’ve also posted Memory Box dies and two stencils. We have never carried dies before for several reasons. One, we don’t want to carry products you can find everywhere. Two, just haven’t been overwhelmed by too many die companies because I hate when they don’t cut clean or take forever to pop all the little pieces out.  Well, all that has changed…. personally I have never used metal dies quite like Memory Box.  The are intricate, smooth and on some awesome non-stick kind of metal.  You may have to smack the backside on a table or something but they are like butter! Here’s a few examples…

They also just released some stencils. Had to try some out but unfortunately only got two designs (for now)…

We’ve been even busier… Also finally added the Double Scoop Gelatos from faber-Castell to the store.  Now, these yummy mediums are available in twie the size and in individual colors….

Thanks for stopping by.
