ATC Swap


The ATC's were all stunning and you can see them at the ATC Web Album. We'll be doing another swap in October and information on that will be available in late August or early September. I didn't get mine done in time to participate, but plan to get it done by the end of next week. Since I missed the deadline, my "bad girl" punishment is to make 50. The 1st thirteen will go to the participants and the rest will be available to non-participants on a 1st come 1st served basis until they are gone. I'll let you know when they are available here on the blog.

Demo Day Make-It-Take-It
If you didn't make it to Demo Day, the Make-It-Take-It Card instructions will be available next week. Lisa always makes Demo Day so much fun. Everyone enjoyed making this really cute Halloween "JailBirds" card.

Until next post.......Happy Stampin'!

Just In Today!


We sold out of PaperCut's new scalloped cards and layers the week just after Demo Day. They are all back in stock along with a few new styles. Everyone liked the scalloped rectangular cards so we also ordered the scalloped rectangular layering cards to go with them. There are also smooth edged circles for layering.

Invoke Arts

New stamps, mounted and unmounted, arrived. The "Bird" girls are back as well as an assortment of unusual hearts and tags. Four unmounted sets include postmarks, the Birdcage Bird-girl in large, ATC signatures and funky house frames.

PaperBag Studios

Assortment of woodmounted stamps - some new images and some popular ones we've had before.

Demo Day
It's Saturday......Always FREE and always a Make-It-Take-It. Remember to bring your ATC Swap submission.

Hope to see you Saturday if not before. Until then......Happy Stampin'!

What's Happenin' This Week

Welcome Back! We had a great Independence Day holiday weekend. It's been a bit crazy since we got back trying to catch up, but things are getting back to normal. I hope you enjoyed your share of fireworks and picnic food!

My Favorite Things

We got in a small batch of the very newest clear sets from My Favorite Things. You'll want to check them out. You can see a few cute samples on
Split Coast (select company samples and then My Favorite Things).

7 gypsies
New Photo Carousel - Just like
the ATC carousel only for 4x6 photos! You'll love this if you want to do a photo album without the book. The carousel comes with 10 clear sleeves. We also have black index tabs, color transparency frames and refill photo sleeves to fit this one. The ATC size carousel is also in stock with a variety and we have a variety of pockets, sleeves, and transparence frames for it also.

ATC Swap

Remember that we extended the deadline for entries to July 19 (Demo Day). We've already received a few and they are so cool. We still have packets if you want to use our precut ATC cards, but you can use any cards that are 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", roughly the size of a playing card (heck, use playing cards if you want!). Make 10 all the same or'll get 10 back from 10 other rubber stamp artists (and yes, I've been convinced to join in as well....Denis the Dcuk being my theme!). We still have a few copies of the Tweety Jill ATC book if you need one. Lots of inspiration and ideas fill this beautiful full color book.

Demo Day Reminder
Demo Day is Saturday, July 19th. Lisa accidently typed the 20th on her class schedule so we wanted to make sure you were aware of the correct date. For those of you who know Danica, she's promised to help us. Ask her to show you her engagement ring! It's beautiful.

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

New from Tweety Jill

Tweety Jill Rubber Stamps

Even though the ATC book has been delayed by a day, the first of the new
Tweety Jill Rubber Stamp Line came in today. There are 4 sets available now and 4 more to come later in the month. Themes include: Italian Artist, Journey to France, Song Birds, and Vintage Collage. Each set is made from deeply etched red rubber with cling mount cushion already attached. there are 13-15 stamps included and they are packaged in a sturdy 5x7 jewel case. Tweety Jill Rubber Stamp ATC Book: Due in tomorrow, this book is full of great ideas for your ATC's

Speaking of ATC's:


Deadline for submitting your ATC's for the store swap has been extended. Your submissions for the ATC swap will be accepted as late as Demo Day, July 19th. After realizing the 4th of July holiday was keeping many from joining, we felt it was only fair to extend the deadline. For those of you who are intending to mail them, please mail them in time to arrive here by July 22. Remember to include your self-addressed return address label. Address is: 12314 N May, Oklahoma City, OK 73120.


We will close at 4:00 pm on Thursday and remain closed through the weekend. We'll be back to normal hours on Tuesday, July 8th! Have a very Happy 4th of July! Until next post.....Happy Stampin'!
