We had a great deal of fun working with a new stamp set from Impression Obsession to create a wonderful ladybug card. I'll show you more about it later this week.'s the schedule for March. Be sure you drop by to sign up soon. There are plenty of spaces available, but as you know, classes fill quickly so don't miss out on an opportunity to take the classes you are most interested in.

SPRING BY MEMORY BOX - March 3, 5, & 6: You'll make 4 cards using new papers and images created by Memory Box.

HERO BY REQUEST - March 10, 12, & 13: This class was requested by one of our customers who fell in love with a group of cards on the Hero website. They are indeed stunning and you will enjoy creating these 4 cards.

Many of you have heard rumored on various forums and blogs that Luminarte is going out of business and we found out late Friday night that it is indeed true. 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.

We are aware that many of you have begun collections of the H2O's and Shimmering Mists. Due to the impending closure of Luminarte, we are putting together a special order. If you are interested in special ordering any Luminarte products, please call or email NO LATER THAN Thursday at 10pm. You may leave a comment here on the blog. I'll check it Thursday night. 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.

Just a quick reminder that Saturday is Demo Day. Remember it is come and go from 10am to 4pm. There is always a make-it-take-it and it is always FREE. Lisa's March class schedule will be available and you can sign up for classes while you are here.
