Two Scoops?

Just a note to add that BasicGrey will be releasing a new collection in early January, it's just in time for Valentines day, but is such a good collection that you'll want to pre-order this one!

Here are some of what this collection includes:
(you are going to love this!)

12x12 Scrapbook Collections
6x6 Paper Pads
4-Sets of Clear Stamps
Flower Swash
Heart Smudge
Swirlie Stamps
Sweet Sentiments
Olio Rub On Book
Two Scoops Buttons
Two Scoops Bulk Brads
Two Scoops Glazed Brads

Here is my attempt!

I made this using the marvy uchida scalloped oval punch, cranberry crisp cardstock and the figgy pudding cardstock from the 6x6 paper pad. I also use the su ticket punch, dazzling diamonds and cranberry crisp ink. The stamps are from the Santa Baby clear stamp set from BasicGrey

One more day!

One more day to wait for the announcement of the Design Team! We've had so many great applicants it's really going to be a hard decision! I'll post it when we've made up our minds.............. oh the torture of trying to decide!

Friday, October 26, 2007

I was tagged by Suzy of Paper Monkey to:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my 7 Very Random facts!

1. I love coke. I drink way to much of it. I have coke like most people have coffee.....
2. Which leads to this strange fact. I've never had a cup of coffee in my life. I had a sip once.
3. I made hot tea for Chuck Berry (remember him?)
4. I have a Z Becky Brown purse. (anyone want it?)
5. Steven King is my favorite writer
6. I bought my first rubber stamp in 1994 I bought a moon stamp and a Christmas tree stamp from a stamp store in the mall. I also bought some embossing powder that I still have and use.
7. I collect Beatles stuff. I have all the albums and cd's. I have the paste over album. It's in really good shape too.

I'll tag tomorrow!

The Bind It All Stuff.........

didn't last long.....:( I have ordered more, but no telling when it will get here. In the meantime though, I have some cool new Maya Road Binder Books and all kinds of goodies! I really like the treasure box and books, and always, the really cool lunchbox tins with the chipboard in them!
Maya Road
I have some hinged cd tins and mint tins coming Monday, so that will be fun! I like to make small cards and envelopes to put in the tins and give as gifts to my favorite people!

Bind It All!

Bind It All! Just received the order for the bind it all last night. I haven't even had time to list it on the website yet, but I will as soon as I can. I can't wait to try it out! I got most of everything that goes with it except the stuff that's on backorder. In the meantime, I got more of the Clever Lever Mega and Giga Punches if you're looking for some!

Friday, June 15, 2007

Whooo Hooo

Okay, so they made a mistake in the order, but we did get the Mega Circle Scalloped Punch! The other punches will be here next week, probably Wednesday. This is the first time I had seen these much talked about and sought after punches. Even my distributor can't keep them in stock. I have a few for now, they're selling fast, so if you want one, you better go get it now!

Ribbon Irons and Tsukineko Glue Pads

Yipee!! The Ribbon Irons finally arrived! It is such a cool tool I can't believe it! I haven't used it yet for real, I just tried it out. It's kind of like a flat hair iron only it's fits in your hand.
My very first order of Tsukineko Essential Glue Pad with Re-inkier came today too. I can't wait to try this out with some diamond dust!

New Cuttlebug Folders

Just a note to let you know that I've ordered all the new Cuttlebug Folders and the Paisley Die! I can't wait to get that die in cause ya know, everyone loves paisley! Isn't it the best? I'll let you know when they ship these. Supposed to be the middle of May, but everyone is ordering them and it's so hard to get a full order. I sure hope they don't go on backorder right away.

More Cuttlebug Embossing Folders Are On The Way

Some of my backorder for the Cuttlebug Folders is finally in processing so they should be here next week. Many are still on backorder and will ship the first week of May. Many other new items will also be coming so be sure to check out my store for those items next week. I'm also expecting more of the 6x6 paper pads from BasicGrey next week. I will be getting Phoebe, Scarletts Letter, Stella Ruby, LilyKate and Romani. The Precision File Sets are almost gone and BasicGrey has them on backorder again.

New BasicGrey Precision File Set

We finally received our order of Precision File Sets from BasicGrey! These tools are awesome!
The files are small enough to get in the tightest places and I love it that they come in rounds and squares! These are going fast. I ordered 30 and in 2 days I'm down to 17. These are a must have when attaching paper to small chipboard letters. Even the Chiz-let won't get into the tiny corners like these files will!

Those Cuttlebug Folders Went Fast

Those cuttlebug folders are almost gone! I have a ton of them on backorder but I have no idea when they will ship. I also am trying to get the new paisley die along with the folders but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I did order a Kewl New Tool! It's from Pebbles Inc. and it's a Ribbon Iron!

no more wrinkled ribbons!! It is small, portable and easy to use. Just heat the ribbon iron, place it in your palm of your hand and pull the ribbon through. It also works great for setting creases in pape!!!
-110 V-60 hz / CE approved / UL approved plug and cord / Indicator light turns on when in use / Lock-Unlock switch allows unit to be closed for storing Package size is 5 ½" x 9"

This product hasn't shipped yet, but I'm excited about it!
