When we arrived on Wednesday Janurary 20th it was definitely not SUNNY California. We went to Craftmania where a series of vendors presented the new paper collections and embellishments. Just to say a few we did see My Mind's Eye's, Fancy Pants and even pink Paislee's new collections and they are super cute, and will be a be hit with all of you. OMG Bo Bunny has 6 new Collections and they are great. Just to give you a little excitement we are getting EVERYTHING! I know you have been waiting for this but right now Margie from Advantus is presenting her new line and guess who I just spoke to????? I told Tim that all the people from Scrap Tales in Brighton, MI said hello and asked him when is he coming to visit. The time you have been waiting for it is TIM HOLTZ hour. I have Laura and her camera ready and she will have some great pictures for you tonite. Right now Tim is showing us his ideology line and he is releasing new grunge board in a size 6 x 12 and he is keeping just non embossed grunge. We had to ask is there just a box that says order all. Still no answer. With all the feedsback that everyone has sent us via email or even through Linda has been a wonderful help to us.
OK fellow scrap tales followers Start saving because once we get all the Tim Holtz stuff in let me just say get in quick because quanities are definitely limited and you might just want to let Linda know you want it all. All of the stuff is more then words can say. Tims new book is a must have!!!!ok just got the official word. The dies will be in our store within 2 to 3 weeks. We are getting a limmited amount originally so get that special order to Linda because we don't know how long it will take to get the second wave in from sizzix. Once you see them and play with them you will want them ALL. I will tell you... I wasn't sure about them and now I want them too. But you will definitely get them before me. So maybe I can just borrow them during scrapbook league.Creative Imagination new collections are amazing, don't have pictures yet but will be getting on Sunday so after the show I will be putting some of those up for you. The wood paper is going to be a great addition to the store. You can emboss, distress and even cut in the die cut machines, and it comes in 3 different finishes.
Just another thought or question what are you takes on doing art on canvas. We have seen some pretty cool projects done with this technique and I see a place for everyone to expand and open the horizons. Don't forget to check out the new pictures and leave me some comments on what you think on what you see so far.
In between all that and then the show, we were able to take some classes. Which we learned a lot. But by far our favorite class was the do you distress class. He is a wonderful teacher,and any person would be grateful to have him at their store.
We are finally done and then we head home tomorrow, hopefully we will be able to catch up on our sleep and ge rested for when the product comes in....
Look forward to seeing all the new products come in so as far as a having a favorit i really cant say..
