The Scoop on Sizzix

First...check out the new dies from Sizzix this month! They are Sizzlits (with the exception of some new embossing folders), which means they are thin like QuicKutz dies and can fit in most of the die cutting machines on the market. All dies are in-stock and ready to fly home with you. Get it...they all have wings...get it?!? ahem... :)

Second, for those needing a new die cutting machine, here is what we currently stock for Sizzix...the Big Shot (a sturdy machine with a 6" opening that cuts all sizes of Sizzix, QuiKutz, Spellbinders AND Cuttlebug dies), the Big Shot Express (which is the Big Shot with a plug - great for those with weak hands/wrists OR who are just lazy like me!), and the Big Shot PRO.

The Big Shot Pro works will ALL size dies and features an impressive 13" wide opening! (Currently, we only have one left in the store and it's on sale for $299.99, originally $349.99!!)

Third...let's talk about the new Tim Holtz dies that are COMING SOON! Some of these dies will work with your Revolution...ALL of the dies will work with any of the Big Shot machines and/or the QuicKutz Epic. If you'd like to "reserve" any, you can call the store and get your name in the book. We'll let you know as soon as they arrrive!

Tim also introduced some new Texture Folders (same as embossing folders). These are gonna work GREAT with the Core'dinations paper!

Last, but certainly not least, I wanted to leave you with some info on the new Tim Holtz Sizzix machine that is expected to arrive in July/August. Thanks to for the You Tube Video...

hump day story time :)

First, let me wish you all a very happy HUMP day! Today's kits were designed by the lovely Miss Linda! Still only $5, while supplies last.

Second, I want to share a fun story with you. As you know, Fridays are our big crop 'til ya drop days. We're open until midnight, and we have a fabulous group of women (and the occasional man - here's a shout out to Dave!) who come and crop. Well, it's not JUST a crop. It's a social day...a day to get caught up on how everyone's doing...find out how everyone faired during the big snow storm...hear about kids and grandkids...enjoy lunch BE MERRY!

Well, last Friday, our store was a little different. A little, um, BRIGHTER. Someone brought in this lovely toilet hugging BRIGHT YELLOW rug and mysteriously placed it in our bathroom.

Who was it?!?! Most of the staff was there that day, and we kept whispering to each other..."ohmygosh, WHO brought THAT in here?!?!" We were speculating and eyeing everyone up. We didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings by immediately grabbing it and flinging it out the back door (although we came close).

So...we kept asking customers...did YOU bring it in? Croppers were asking each other. STAFF was asking each other. NOBODY was fessin' up!

We talked about it ALL day long. Still no answers.

So...the next morning we had a staff meeting (which was previously planned and NOT a result of the rug!). We figured out who the culprit was and hatched this plan to play it up on the blog as if we really, really LIKED it.

BUT...the suspect wound up calling in and confessing her sins :)

THIS is exactly what we love about our customers...they are FUN!

April...we love ya...thanks for BRIGHTENING up our day!
