Today we are featuring Simple Stories product from their new collection- Enchanted. April and Nadine both did such a great job with this collection. We love how this princess collection is versatile and can suit many needs. From pet, to child, to love, to real live princesses.
Big thank you's to these two ladies for their amazing work and for sharing with us today.
We love how April has used this line to capture the personality of her fur baby.
Real life princess encounters- love it!
We love Nadine's ability to cut apart papers and layer them in just the right way!
We carry an amazing assortment of decor pieces from Bottle Cap Company. The tin tiles are absolutely beautiful! The chicken wire frame is fabulous! The rustic frames that coordinate with all these pieces are dreamy! The pieces work great on their own and can be altered to suit your style and need. Daryl used Prima's chalkboard paint to cover the tin tiles and then distressed them to create a gorgeous finish! These tiles make the most beautiful magnet board for home or office.
Be sure to check out the selection of Bottle Cap Company product next time you're shopping in store.
Did you also know.... we carry clock parts.
Create a one of a kind clock! Pattern paper isn't just for crafting!
Just in case you missed them the first time we have just recieved a re-stock of our Animal Spirit stamps by artist Sue Coccia. These stamps depict animal images, or totems, from around the world and are from inspired drawings in pen and ink. Animal Totems represent a deep spirituality, and by beginning to understand animals' qualities and traits, we can learn from them.
Being original works of art Sue has taken to hiding a ladybug in each drawing she makes, see if you can find them all.
Kassandra's next Art Journal class uses Prima's watercolor pencils, Gelatos, matte medium, archival inks, Tim Holtz tissue paper and beautiful Stampotique stamps.
