Stamp Camp

We hosted our first ever mini stamp camp on Saturday Nov. 6th. Mini Camp? we only accepted 20 attendees, and lunched on sandwiches and snacks. This was a Christmas Card Camp, we created 30 cards.
Here I am explaining the cards.

Carla, Barb and Shelley busy creating.

Joanne from Canton learning to use Design Adhesive.

Sheila, Heidi and Darlene.

Nice big tables, plenty of room, and no one had to move. We worked from baskets, just like a regular class.

Here are some of the cards we made, this one using a EK success border punch and Hero Arts seasonal trees.
Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder with a cuttlebug embossed background, this one was a favorite.

Design adhesive trees, done with green designer foil.

Snowman with the cutest little thermometer.

Tim Holtz's vintage Santa.
Aren't these the cutest little snowguys?
Reindeer cut from the Cricut with a cuttlebug frame.

The cuttlebug cut and emboss folder again, this time with stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.

Merry Christmas sentiment cut on the Cricut.
Sentiment on the inside.

Pennants are really "BIG" right now, this is my take on a pennant card. Notice the tiny lights.

Snowglobe with a Hero Arts penguin.

Cut and Fold card with a snowflake center.

A new stamp from Just Rite, layered with a cuttlebug background.

Cute little bunny from Cat's Pajamas.

A good time was had by all, I hope you'll consider joining us for a stamp camp, you'll be glad you did!

New arrivals and a special offer

Arrivals in the store this week include the VERY popular cuttlebug cut and emboss folders.
These are super easy to use, and make really beautiful cards.
Labels would be awesome for cards or gift tags.

And these tags, I will definately be using for my Christmas tags.
This is our most cut and emboss design, we can't seem to keep it in stock. If you'd like one, hurry in.

Other NEW arrivals in the store include a great variety of NEW embossing folders from sizzix.
Above is a Basic Grey design, below a Tim Holtz design. All these new folders have super deep impressions, I love them.
A couple more Tim Holtz designs... And this die, makes super easy rosettes without scoring. I used this at the Trade show that I recently attended and couldn't wait to get one.

And for readers of my blog, I have a special sale just for you.
All halloween papers, stamps, and embellishments are 50% off Saturday only.
Just mention that you read it here on the blog!

I'm back!

Many of you may not even have realized I was gone, LOL!
I attended the Collins Group Trade show this past weekend.
Four days FILLED with classes, seminars and make and takes.

I was extremely excited to meet Alma, from the Cat's Pajamas Rubber Stamps.
I've been a customer for many years and it was nice to put a face to the company.She is super sweet and a really talented artist and designer.
Check out this cute card. I was fortunate enough to take her class, wait till you see what we made! I'll have all my goodies displayed at the shop.

The ever popular Tim Holtz taught at this event. I took one of his classes, 45 students in the class! It's crazy how popular Tim is!
I also got to meet Claudine Helmouth designer from Ranger. You may recognize her name from some of the newer Ranger products. She is super sweet.

And look who else was there! I had a great time catching up with Stacy from StacyStamps.
She has some great new designs. And she has switched from wood to cling!

Stampendous was there...

One of my favorite classes was from Mitra at Impression Obsesession. She taught a brand new technique. Check out these beautiful cars we made...

I also took a class from JustRite Stampers, they have some brand new releases and a terrific catalog and idea book. We made 3 cards using all new stamps, here is one of them...

I had a great time, and hope that I can go to their show in the spring. This show is so much better than CHA! One on one time with the vendors and artisits.
I met alot of other store owners, swapped ideas and class ideas.
One thing that struck me, was how few cards most store owners include in their classes. On average most do 4 cards for $25! That will never happen at Creative Creations!
This would be a good time to remind you about our upcoming Stamp Camp. November 6th from 10am till 5pm. Make 30 cards and lunch for $55. Great deal, don'tcha think?

Scentsy Book Party

While blog surfing recently I came across a neat home fragrance company that has a really smart burner...

No need to worry about lit candles... Scentsy Warmers use a light bulb to melt their high quality vegetable waxes.

80 awesome fragrances, 8 new fall releases in blocks and bricks of wax, many different styles of burners, car fragrance and room sprays.

Stop in for a sample and to smell ALL of the yummy scents.
I'm having a book party, and currently have the fragrance of the month burning in the shop.
If you are interested in a great Christmas gift idea, consider ordering.

New at Creative Creations

We just received some new arrivals at Creative Creations, including a large assortment of card making and scrapbook magazines. We have Card Creations, Go to Sketches for cardmaking, Stamp It!, Tips and Tricks for Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Sketches and Card A Day.
