New digital images from QK

Attention all Silhouette digital designs are waiting for you! It's sort of a crazy mix this time...all kinds of Easter shapes (chocolate bunny, Easter basket, chick, jelly bean border), Spring shapes (trees, gardening tools, leaves, sun) and vinyl designs (jungle animals, sea creatures, paws, trees, flourish). LOTS of nice shapes :) My kids LOVED some of the fun ones, so we cut them out in vinyl and stuck them to their bedroom doors. (They HAD to have the bright green!) SO incredibly easy!

This is the link to the new shapes - - however, it doesn't seem to be showing you the images. Hopefully, QK will fix it soon. Open your Silhouette software and click on the Purchase Online'll see them.

Remember, for $14.99 a month you can download UNLIMITED designs by using our promo code BEACH. I subscribed and downloaded over $95 worth of downloads yesterday for FREE! Well, it wasn't really free since I paid the monthly fee, but you get the jist. If you have ANY questions about the subscription plan, let us know b/c this is an AMAZING deal!!

LIMITED EDITION SILHOUETTE SDs - IN STOCK! Come by the store and check it out.

>>>>>>Check back tomorrow for pictures of new items including Colorbök, ScrapOnizer, American Crafts, custom Virginia Beach items (including Shamrock Marathon titles), and Creative Imaginations.

(FYI...Bazzill paper has been restocked along with In Stitch'z, flowers, chipboard, and album refills)

I'm back!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Have you missed me? I'm sorry I've MIA over the past few days. The weather this weekend was un-freaking-believable! So warm and toasty :) We spent most of our waking moments outside soaking up the fresh air. Then, on Monday, my son came down with what we thought was strep throat. After many tears and a late night visit to the ER, we were told it was a virus. Ugh. Tuesday was spent at home with a very clingy child (which was actually nice because those moments are becoming less frequent as he gets older!).

In between warm weather and a sick son, my daughter was on cloud 9 after losing TWO teeth over the weekend! The tooth fairy is going to need a loan soon as she has 4 other loose ones!

Anyway...I digress :)

I've attached a sample of new product in the slide show. Really though, come in and check it out. Feel it. Touch it. You'll love it!

One more thing...come check out the class samples on the class wall. We've got some cool things going on this month.

I'm in the store today, cropping and blogging. And Jody's hump day layout is cute, cute, cute!

Come say hi!

Happy Hump Day!

Hump Day kits...only $5...available at 9 a.m.!
(check back later today for new product info)

The Blog...

I'm updating the blog today...I PROMISE! Check back later :)

MORE new stuff!

Happy Friday everyone!

This will be a quick update as I've had a migraine most of the day. Ugh...I HATE migraines. I'll post pictures later.

Here's what's new:

~ QuicKutz: NEW adhesive 4x12 strips! Cork, metal, magnetic, clear plastic, chipboard, vellum, and double sided adhesive. Works in your Revolution AND Squeeze. You get several sheets for only $4.99! Also, we've restocked our 4x8 alphabets. If you're a QuicKutz Club member who enjoyed the buy 1, get one free sale - come get your alphabet(s)!
~ Unity Stamps: a new (cling) rubber stamp company currently being promoted by several celebrities, including Donna Downey. Cute, cute, cute! Perfect for all you card makers out there :) [These were selling right off the counter today, so come see them soon!]
~Flair: Summer Daze collection (beach and outdoor theme), 8x8 paper packs in baby girl, baby boy, beach and love themes
~ Pebbles: Candy Dots in all colors! The first time we received these, they sold out before we could even hang them on the wall. Remember the candy dots you used to eat when you were little? They look just like them. Except you shouldn't eat them. They are brads without the legs...and they're self adhesive. Whoever thought of these is a genuis ;-)

>>>>>>>>After you read this, get your calendars out and pencil us in for National Scrapbook Day! Actually, we'll have events going on the whole weekend...May 2nd and 3rd. Stay tuned for more information, coming soon!

Have a great, WARM weekend!

Hump Day kits available!

Happy Wednesday!

As you may notice, the Happy Hour part is gone from our logo. We did this intentionally as we are focusing more on a happy DAY as opposed to an HOUR (or two)!

For the past year, we have offered a time in the evening for you to join us while putting together a layout. The cost was $5, and we provided everything from the ideas to the glue. Many people were unable to come at night due to other commitments, so we decided to mix it up a bit. During the month of February, we offered two kits each Wednesday (still at $5) starting at 9 a.m.. This was a HUGE success. As some of you know, we were selling out of kits within the hour. Crazy!

As you can imagine, this presented a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless.

So, our staff had a looong discussion about it. There were a lot of good ideas, but the one that seemed to be the best solution is stated below.

To all our kit-loving customers: we'd love to hear your feedback. Tell us what works, what doesn't work, and/or what would make your life easier. We are very open to suggestions!

Having said all we go...

Every Wednesday in March, there will be ONE kit for sale. We will be making MORE of that kit than in previous weeks, so hopefully there will be kits available throughout the day. The kits are still $5.

Thank you for all of your support!

Lots of new products have arrived!

Today, I am playing catch-up. I was a little slack on the blog last week with regard to telling you what was new. If you were in the store, you know that we were very busy entering new product in our computer system and getting it displayed. The slideshow shows SOME of the new product, but not all...otherwise, you'd be watching for way too long and neglecting your job/kids/husband!

QuicKutz - Spring Shapes release - this has been extremely popular! And, we have the new LIMITED EDITION Silhouette SD in stock. Remember, we'll match any competitor's price :) We also carry the Silhouette sketch pens individually now.
My Little Yellow Bicycle - Baby Safari girl and boy
Pink Paislee - refill on glitter Pixie Sticks, Enchanting, Captivating, and Fetching
Tattered Angels - a new rack with all the popular colors, new spring colors, new alterable albums
Bo-Bunny - ALL the new lines including boy, birthday, beach, pets, etc., new chipboard books, individual chipboard monograms (only 50 cents!), refill on double dot cardstock, and more
Glitz Design - 2 new lines - one is a bit girlish and the other a bit boyish, new roller stamps
The Paper Adventure - beach line
Paper House - restock on LOTS of travel stickers and papers, and we've restocked the 39 cents die cuts rack with old favorites and new shapes.

I THINK that sums it up...stay tuned for more new product arriving this week.

And, stay warm!!
