Just like brads, but legless! All the way from the UK, CANDI is the perfect dimensional finishing touch to adorn any page, card or project. (Tip: Stickles, Copics, Distress Inks and Glossy Accents work great on them!)

Check out this video to see the many uses of CANDI...

Did you hear that sound? It was your fingernails rejoicing!! (No more brads to separate!)

With Love and Fresh Goods

Check out our two newest collections, With Love and Fresh Goods :)

Now...before you get all crazy on me...With Love is a very sweet line and does NOT scream Valentine's Day (although that is what it was intended for). It does have some hearts, but, you can use hearts for, family, 10 things you love about XXX, your pets, whatever! And...if you like kraft will for sure wanna check it out :)

Fresh Goods reminds me of the month after Christmas. I don't know about you, but I get in this cleaning/organizing frenzy where I want all the Christmas decorations and gifts put away so I can have my simple, clean house back! Plus, with all the cold weather that hits us in January, I begin looking forward to those early Spring days. Fresh Goods has a great color palette, clean/crisp designs, and a few flowers which hint at touch of Spring.

MAGIC reindeer food!

Don't forget to feed the reindeer! After about a million houses, they get really sick of carrots. So...feed them magic reindeer food...this is the stuff they LOVE!! We came across some of this special food that makes them fly faster so Santa can deliver all his presents...all you need to do is sprinkle it in your yard on Christmas Eve. We only have a limited amount so get yours today (it even has instructions)!

Knock Outs - Punches by American Crafts

Introducing American Crafts’ new Knock Outs Border Punches !

The Knock Outs Border Punches come in a compact carrying case with one punch base and six interchangeable punches.

Underneath each punch are "wings".

The wings are small gray pieces that fit on either side of the punch. See the holes below? That's where they snap in. The wings can only fit in one way, so there's no chance of messing it up :) The actual punch fits in the middle, with the words Knock Outs always facing you.

Once everything is in place, it looks like an ordinary border punch...right?!?

When you're finished, everything goes right back in to the clear carrying case. What we love about this product is that it's LESS weight than carrying six border punches AND it's way more compact in terms of storage.

Happy punching!
