November 2008 Class Schedule


A little late, but better than never....LOL. Seriously, getting ready to take a week long trip has put me behind. I'm sorry to be late with this post....please forgive me.

This will be the last schedule of the year due to the mass activity level of everyone during the month of December. Classes are filling fast, so be sure to let us know if you want to take one of these classes. You may sign up by phone if you can put a check into the mail the same or next day.

NOSTALGIC CHRISTMAS - Nov 4, 6 & 7 A card class with an old fashioned feel. You will create 5 cards using a variety of products and techniques.

QUICK & EASY XMAS - Nov 11, 13 & 14 Several of the cards in this class were samples that customers requested be put into a class. You will make 5 cards, one of which is a birthday card!

DEMO DAY - Saturday, Nov 15 10am to 4pm ALWAYS FREE - ALWAYS A MAKE-IT-TAKE-IT Also the last true Demo Day of the year (we always do something the day after Christmas along with the Day After Christmas sale).

LET IT SNOW - Nov 20 & 21 In this class you will make a decorative gift pail and 2 really cute cards. You won't want to miss out on this one.

Remember to guarantee your seat in class you must prepay class fees. If you find that you are unable to come to class your fees will be refunded or applied to another class when you give 48 hours notice by phone. Email cancellations are not accepted. Remember to bring your basic kit to all classes. All basic items are available for purchase if you forget to bring your kit.

That's about it for now......until next time......Happy Stampin'!

October Demo Day


Yup, it's here again, yes indeedy! Demo Day......a day we all love to enjoy. We've got a few new things on tap we want to let you know about so here goes......
InkaDinkaDo Buy 2 Get 1 Free........The new selection is here. There is a little how-to idea brochure that is free with purchase. The brochures are limited in number so please do not take one if you don't buy any of the stamps.....DO feel free to take any of the older brochures from past "buy 2 get 1 free" programs that are left over. As you can see from the picture, there are a few of the Halloween stamps left over so these are Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Demo Day only.

Demo Day Special.......Remember last month's Clear Mini Stamp special? We have just received a Christmas selection of these same stamps. On Demo Day only we will be offering these mini clear sets as a Buy 2 Get 1 Free. At $1.99 each they are already a bargain and they won't last long.

Halloween Swap......If you participated in the Halloween Swap, remember to pick up your bag of swaps. For those of you who did not participate, you can view the web album by clicking on this link......Halloween Swap.....and you can see pictures of all the altered jumbo playing cards that were created. Believe me when I say...."WoW!"

Christmas Tag Swap......Many of you who were unable to participate in the Halloween Swap have expressed an interest in a Christmas Tag Swap. If you are interested, pick up a packet at Demo Day which will include 10 tags and instructions. Your altered tags will be due on November 8th and will be returned to you on the 15th (November Demo Day). This will give you 3 weeks to create your fabulous works of Christmas art to share. Swaps have been popular here and we're happy to host them as long as everyone is interested.

Hope to see you tomorow......until then.....Happy Stampin'

The New and the Old News at My Heart's Fancy


Memento Ink Pads
We had a request from one of our favorite customers, Barb H, who uses Copic markers for a variety of projects. She loves them, but has found that there are very few ink pads that don't smear when she uses the markers. She searched around until she found just the right pad - Memento by Tsukineko. If you use Copics, this is the ink pad for you. We ordered Black and Brown for her and have stocked a few extras for those of you out there who are interested. If you want other colors, let us know....we can get them too.

Artgirlz Witch Kits
We still have a few black or lime green witch kits available. These are the cutest kits you've ever seen. They were an incredible hit last year and so far this year have been highly sought after as well. We also have an Elf kit available. Everything you need but the needle and thread is included.

New 12 x 12 Papers
We just got a new batch of beautiful 12 x 12 Christmas papers. These papers have just a bit of sparkly glitter and will be great used in collages or as backgrounds in a project or card.

Miracle Tape
For those of you who have enjoyed Increditape in the past, we now have a new, more dependable supplier. Their product is known as Miracle Tape and is a better value for money. You get about 33% more transfer tape for the same price. It is available in 4 widths, a small sheet and the cutter holder is back. This is a must have basic kit item and you won't want to live without it.

Halloween Swap
Don't forget to turn in your Halloween Swap by 5pm on Saturday. If you just can't get them here by Saturday, give me a call and we'll see what we can work out. I may have an alternate solution, but I need time to get them photographed so we can put them on a web album for everyone to see. We posted web albums with the Valentine Tag Swap and the Summer ATC Swap so everyone could see what they didn't get in their packs. It's always fun to see other people's work!

That's about it for now......until next post......Happy Stampin'

Cute Halloween Project

Halloween is in the Air!

Our friend Susie Watkins dropped by with a little show and tell. This is just the cutest variation of a box Lisa did a couple of years ago. Susie said she had thought about painting the box, but didn't. I think it looks great just the way it is. Lisa said she'd never thought of using "squares" of printed paper, but now she's got a whole new perspective. I love it when people share.......

Speaking of sharing......don't forget to turn in your Halloween Swaps by Saturday. We've already received a couple of really creative ones. If you haven't gotten a packet, come by and pick up one....there's still plenty of time to get one done! Remember, the only restriction is that you use the provided cards and use a Halloween theme. We want you to have fun and the name of the game here is sharing.....

If you are still interested in one of Lisa's classes, give us a call. There are still openings in some of them. The Bird Tag Shadow Box class is full, BUT there still seems to be a few who missed getting in so Lisa is taking names for an additional class. Call if you want to take this class and she'll throw it on the next schedule. This project makes a fabulous gift and several people have taken it more than one time for just this reason.

That's about it for now.......until next time.....Happy Stampin!
