Today we got in new Karen Foster and K&Company. Everything is already on the shelves and the walls. I felt like I barely got a chance to sit at all today, we were so busy! We have the cutest Tim Coffey Halloween 3-D embellishments and paper. Bats with googly eyes, goblins, Frankenstein, Dracula, a little boy and girl in costume. Flocked bat paper that is only $1.49 a sheet (one of my customers told me she's seen it elsewhere at $3.50 a sheet!!!), glitter spider web paper, skulls, bones, Halloween dots, and a page with children in costumes across the bottom. Very, very adorable. If you're not sure what to do with all of these, we have some great examples displayed of things you can make with them (not just layouts). We also have Sandylion Bats, Black Cats, and Witches. These would be perfect if you were making identical favors or invitations for Halloween parties.
We finally got all of the collection of the Pirate line from Karen Foster (some had been on backorder), along with more stickers. Also a new Ballet collection with cardstock stickers and stacked (3-D) stickers that are very beautiful. And, Felix was jumping with joy when he discovered I also got in the Billiards collection from Karen Foster, paper and stickers!
We hung up lots more samples of layouts, and I'm trying to finish a sample of all of the new Cards collection from Karen Foster. I've got a couple done already, and they're really nice. These are double-sided, distressed, heavy cardstock-weight papers in themes like Congratulations, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You and more. There are coordinating rub-ons and specialty brads (cupcakes, party hats, bees, flowers, etc.) and button brads that really add the finishing touches. I have a large stack of idea cards that has samples of a card made with each of the papers in the collection (free!). What a great way to get started making gift collections of greeting cards for Christmas presents!!! (BTW, these papers are ONLY 65 cents a sheet!)
We also got in new paper from Karen Foster that is In Loving Memory, along with coordinating cardstock stickers. This is very nice paper that would be so appropriate if you are doing a memory layout or working with an obituary or the like. Very tasteful.
I don't recall if I mentioned it before, but we got in A LOT of ribbon!!! We have gorgeous silk ribbon, printed ribbon, more ric rac (all 3 sizes), and so many different patterned ribbons. We have another entire display filled with just ribbon!
Emery made some specialty Halloween brads that you HAVE GOT to see! Supplies are limited, and I'm sure once you see them you'll want several, so make sure you stop in as soon as you can to get some before they're gone.
We have several things on sale until November 1st. 50% off wood-mounted stamps (EXCLUDING New Orleans, Mardi Gras, Saints, and Louisiana specialty stamps!). 25% off ALL Girl Scout and School-themed papers. 25% off the Rick and Sonia Bare Elements wine bottle container and purse (have you watched the video on www.crafttvweekly.com from 09/14?).
Hope to see you soon! Until next time, happy scrapping!
