Great New School Papers

New Fabrics in Stock for Your Wee Ones

Debbie got in a line of Noah's Ark fabrics that will be great for the new nursery or for Grandma or Aunt Susie to create something special for that new wee one in the family. These are soft and lovely.......just right for the Noah theme and these photos don't do the line justice. Photos are good, but you have to see in person! Come see!

We Love Our New Products and You Will Too!

Little Yellow Bicycle always puts out a very fun line at Christmas time, and they did it again! There are delighful papers and embellishments, some of which are shown here, for your crafting projects. This small 6 x 6 album is going to be fun to create for someone special..........look closely and you will see the shape is like a gift box with a big bow on top! See the round paper? Love it.....covered with music. "Twould be fun to "play" the music and see what it is! :) This line is in traditional Christmas colors, with some soft blues thrown in, which is a good softener and transition to winter time also. The snowmen and reindeer are so cute and the whole line is worth looking at. Be sure to check out both will want two of everything you purchase!

This Countdown page kit is so fun. I bought one myself to use with my grandchildren in Ky. when we go there soon. Everything is planned out well and makes it a project you can do in a couple of hours with children or for yourself. We are finding old photos of the kids at Christmas time to put behind the doors, but you could use little notes about Christmas traditions, or a note on each page about where some tiny surprise is hidden to open for that day, etc. It is a lovely kit and for the price of ten dollars, you are getting your money's worth.......the stickers and papers are well done, colorful and just plain great! Hope you enjoy your kit as much as we will enjoy using ours!

The new cardmaking kits from Little Yellow Bicycle are super! Each kit provides everything and more that you need to create eight distinctive cards for the season and this one is no exception. It is a Fifteen dollar kit and you will finish up with eight great cards for the special people in your life. We have them in the school line too, I think. I know we are getting them in several lines from this co., so check it out. Great value and all the instructions are included, of course.

These two photos show a bit from the new tree line (cannot remember the name of it and since it is six o'clock on Sunday morning, I am not about to go look it up!) from Nikki Sivils. She is a relatively new designer to the scrapbooking world and will work in nicely with card makers too. Her choice of color is fun and designs are very whimsical. Her papers work will with those who love to cut out the panels for use in embellishing, and there is a great circular paper with each line. I have seen them used Extremely creatively recently, and have come to Love the circular papers! The other line we have in is the one with the Bees on oranges and blues and is very cute. Come see!

Fall is in Full Force in the Ben

Our new fall papers are going so quickly that some of these might be gone by the time you get in if you do not hurry! Angie has these arranged so you can see a bit of the back side also and you can see that they are some must haves. These are from the Paper Company and the whole line has foil or shimmer in the papers which make them Extra special! The one on the right is Gorgeous.........the apple is in foil and the rest is shimmer I believe........just wonderful. My favorite is the word paper on the the plaid on the back side and the words have foil worked into them and the whole effect is so special. Stickers below are great too........such subtle accents for your cardmaking or page layouts. When they are gone, they are gone, so do not wait. People have been buying them four or five pages at a time, sometimes of one paper, so I am not kidding, they are going quickly!

Debbie created this lovely placemat from some of our new fall fabric and everyone has been talking about it. See the napkin ring attached on the side? How clever! We have a variety of these glass plates in leaf shape, amongst others, that are lovely for your fall table, and the little mini pumpkins are such fun for a variety of decorating plans. You will find these up near the front of the store and there are lots more to choose from.

Remember that gorgeous fall paper line that I showed you above? Debbie used some of it here to create one of her Very Special Wine Box designs and you can do your own! We have a nice stock of the wine bottle boxes in the store right now and this is one of the favorite classes from the former Memories store. If you need to take a class, check with Sue and Deb and see if they can arrange one for you with your favorite papers.........this is a super gift for those special people in your life and you can fill with gourmet items, baby gifts, wedding shower or bridal gift, etc., depending upon which paper line you use. A must have!

Whooligans Galore!

We have the cutest papers for the halloween season. This line is the Hooligans line from Bo Bunny Press and is full of the funniest little critters who are trying to be scary, but don't quite make it. Very, very cute.

Little Yellow Bicycle put out a cute line too, and keep in mind that almost all the papers are double sided, and some of the "other sides" are actually Pretty, and can be used for scrapping heritage pages, etc. Check 'em out!

Here's a layout that Sue did to give you some ideas..................
