Lisa's hit class project, Bird Tag Shadow Box, was chosen to be featured in the current issue of Somerset Home. This class was such a hit she taught it 7 times! We have sold out of the issue, but will be getting a few more copies, so if you want one, let us know.
One of our favorite customers, Margo't Benda, was published in Stamper's Sampler. You can find her card on page 52 of the Aug/Sept 2009 issue. It's a stunning card. Congratulations Margo't! We are also sold out of this issue, but as noted before, we'll order one for you if you want it.
That's it for now..... until next post..... Happy Stampin'!

JULY CLASS SCHEDULE
Ok, I've said it before and I'll say it again..... Lisa has outdone herself once again. I don't know how she does it, but she continues to create the most wonderful projects for you to make.
Remember to hold a place in class you must pay for your class. Refunds or credit for another class is available when you notify Lisa 48 hours in advance that you will not be able to attend. If a particular class you want to take is full, let us add you to a waiting list so we can call you if there are any cancellations. And if there are enough on the waiting list, she can sometimes add another class on another day or add it to the class schedule for the next month.
Anyway, here's what's coming up for July:
CHEERFUL GREETINGS - July 7 & 9th: Cards with bright colors, cheerful greetings - need I say more? There is a fancy fold card that one of our customers shared with us and you will have a great time learning this technique. (Store will be officially closed for painting, cleaning and reorganizing, but class will be held and you will be able to shop during the class).
ARTISTIC CREATIONS - July 14, 16, & 17: This card class is devoted to a new group of stamps by Lynne Perella. These are very artsy and you will be surprised at how easy they are to create.

It's Saturday! Yipee! Yahoo! Lisa has another fabulous Demo Day ready for you! You won't want to miss it! It's always FREE and there is always a make-it-take-it. This month we have free samples for everyone from core'dinations. It is a line of 1/4 cut color cardstock that is double sided with a 3rd color sandwiched inside. It is perfectly sized for Cuttlebug users (it works in other specialty cutter/embossers too). It can be embossed, torn, sanded and will make amazing layers for cards and scrapbook projects alike! The class schedule will be available as usual. We will be ending this demo day promptly at 3 pm so that Lisa and her family can attend her daughter Lauren's graduation so please come early.
If you attended April's Demo Day you enjoyed using Flower Soft, a new product to the store. We sold out completely. It's all back in stock and we have added a few new colors. We also received some of their unmounted rubber stamps that are perfect for use with Flower Soft. Be sure to check it out when you come to Demo Day.
That's it for now....... until next post...... Happy Stampin'!

This month it will start at 10 am and end at 3 pm rather than 4. We are closing it early because Lisa's daughter's graduation ceremony is at 6pm and we don't want to miss it so if you like to come to demo in the afternoon, please arrive in time to complete your make-it-take-it by 3.
Heritage Triptych - May 19 & 22: This project will use your old family photos in a wonderful new way.

We are extremely sad to be saying good-bye to the makers of Twinkling H2O's and Shimmering Mists. These two products are beloved by many of our customers and we are very sad to be losing them. Although we do not have a large inventory, we received the 12 new colors of Shimmering Mists today. All H2O's and Mists in inventory will be offered at 20% off until gone.

If you are on our email list, you will receive an email later today with additonal instructions about the special order.
Special order information: You will receive 20% off retail and your order must be picked up within 2 days of notice that it has arrived. Orders not picked up will be placed in inventory and will be up for grabs.
Time is of the essence as these products will sell out quickly.
