And coming in at #10... not one product, but several! We found lots of EMBELLISHMENTS that we simply couldn't live without. We'll highlight a few here...

One company that has tons of fabulous finds is Prima. Lots of flowers, pearls and bling are coming your way!

Who doesn't love BUTTONS?!? We have a big jar on our counter that now houses nearly 10,000 buttons in all different colors and sizes. Go head, take the top off and stick your hand in there. The best part? Each button is only 10 cents!

Another fabulous find is the new QuicKutz Vinyl. New colors include cream and silver (perfect for Christmas). But, the really sweet new vinyl is FUZZY! It comes in black, white and brown. Look in our QuicKutz section for a card with the cutest little fuzzy brown and white teddy bear! And, we're anxious to see what kind of Halloween creations you can make with the black fuzzy vinyl. In-stock now and just right for fuzzy black bats!

How about a little smooch?!? Hey now, not that kind of smooch! Smooch inks come in these sleek nail polish look alike containers and are available in several colors. Simply use the foam tip applicator to brush the color on whatever surface you desire...paper, cardstock, clay, glass and fabric. It's completely acid free and archival safe.
(Please note that we have already sold out of our first order of Smooch...well, almost...there are 3 bottles left. But...don't fret...we have reordered a second round!)

Mud Puddles is a new concept to scrapbooking and card making. It looks and feels JUST like SAND (and it's acid free and archival safe)! Simply add the color sand that you want and let it dry overnight. It's totally flexible after it dries and will not crumble or fall off your project. Seriously, you'll be amazed at how much it looks like real sand! Coming soon...

Dew Drops are another sweet find. They are lightly colored jewels that add dimension to your scrapbook pages and cards. They look great when highlighting subjects such as flowers, autumn leaves and water. Click here to check out their blog for some sample ideas.

Niner, niner...

While #9 is a small item compared to some of the other products on our top ten list, it was a BIG hit and made us all happy. I'm not sure WHY it made us so happy, but after seeing it in person, Janice, Jody, Amy and I all agreed that we loved it.

Check out the new Film Strip Ribbon by Tim Holtz!

It really looks like a vintage film strip, and it's packaged in this adorable little tin. know those little thumbnail prints that come on a sheet when you get your photos printed? You can cut them up and use 'em in each frame :) Love it!

Tim is pictured below with Jody and Amy at CHA. What an extremely talented and nice guy...

Along with lots of other Tim Holtz items, this fun little Film Strip will soon find its way to Beach Scrapbooks!

Cuts like butta...

Coming in at lucky number 7 is...the Binderie by 7 Gypsies!

The Binderie is essentially a very cool hole puncher. It cuts though paper, chipboard, cardboard, acrylic, fabric, grungeboard, cardstock, photos and more. PLUS, it not only cuts through all those items, but it can cut through multiple pieces all at once. Making your own mini albums has never been easier!

The Binderie works two can either add batteries or purchase an adapter that plugs in the wall. There is a button on the top...with one finger, you push the button and it punches like "butta".

Below are two videos...the first tells you all about how the Binderie works and the materials it cuts. The second is by Jennifer McGuire...she demonstrates how to make one of the easiest Mini Photo Book projects ever! Note that we have everything in stock to make this : )

Just think of all the Christmas gifts you can make with this little red baby!

Next up...

Number 6 in our countdown comes from Maya Road. They make all sorts of fun chipboard and acrylic albums (that will also be arriving soon), in addition to MAYA MISTS!

These sprays are a lot like Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, except that it's a bit more concentrated. This comes in really handy when spraying chipboard. Instead of spending lots of time covering your chipboard with paper, try spraying it with Maya Mist. You'll be amazed at how NICE it covers your surface and how FAST you can spray an entire album!

You can also use Maya Mist to alter items, such as fabric. Want to know how to make these beautiful muslin roses? Click here for a step-by-step tutorial!

The countdown continues...

...with the new Letterpress by QuicKutz! I'd have to say that this product was probably the most talked about product at CHA. It's new, innovative, easy and very inexpensive compared to traditional letterpressing.

Recently, I was reading a magazine called Stationary Trends. There were a dozen or so ads in it for companies that take custom orders for letterpressing. It's a HOT trend that QuicKutz is now making affordable for us!

The video below features Amy Walton, manager of the QK design team, demonstrating the Letterpress. Yes, it's really that easy :)

The final product is beautiful and very professional looking. Come in...we have samples!

Look for the Letterpress to arrive this Fall!

Another big hit at the QuicKutz booth were the next two releases! Here's a little sneak peek :) You'll see this release at the beginning of September...

Top Ten List Continued...

Coming in at #4 isn't just one product but a company that we all know and love...BAZZILL!! They came out with a few new products that we completely love. We couldn't choose just we chose ALL their new releases!

First...Bazzill introduced fabulous new JEWELS. There are two sizes and several new colors. One of the ways to use the new jewels is for embellishing - see the picture below...a few jewels added to the new Just the Edge borders gives your paper just the right bling to make it pop! (click on any of these images to enlarge)

Another use for the jewels is to use together with your In Stitch'z templates.

There are several templates that are used with the jewels. It works like this...pick out your it on your project (paper, lunch box, notebook, chipboard or acrylic albums, etc.)...get out your Bazzill the jewels in the holes provided on the template. When you're finished, simply lift the template and your bling has blung. Okay, that's not really a word, but you get the point. It's seriously that easy and who doesn't love a little bit o' bling in their lives? Bazzill also has a template for letters so you can create your own bling titles!

Now it's easy to add stitching, jewels AND brads (using the same templates) to any of your projects!

Bazzill has also introduced a new Heritage collection. They are beautifully timeless and work great with the Bazzill Lickity Slip albums. How, you ask? Well, the Lickity Slip albums give you two kinds of page protectors. One is for 12x12 layouts and the other is divided up into 4x6 sections.

Say you have a lot of pictures, but don't feel like making layouts for all of them. You could make a layout with your favorites and then simply add the 4x6 pictures to the 4x6 page protectors (see photo above). You can also add a 4x6 journaling card. With the Heritage papers, there are two papers with those perfectly sized journaling cards. This makes scrapbooking a lot of pictures much easier :) (I like the albums because I take way too many pictures but don't necessarily enjoy scrapbooking 140 pages of the same trip to Disney, ya know?!?)

If you've never seen the Lickity Slip albums, our lovely staff would be glad to show you :)

Yes! More Just the Edge borders! Bazzill introduces new designs for Christmas and Halloween. And, just so you know, they are LIMITED EDITION. Get 'em while they're here :) (go back to the top to see the Halloween borders in color)

The last new product that we absolutely love is the new poinsettia. It's coming soon, along with all the other new products by Bazzill!
