The Bazzill Splat Mat is perfect for any crafter.... it really is. A cute scalloped version of a non-stick craft sheet that you'll want to have. It will protect your table, is easy to clean and there are a million techniques you can do with it. Try it out with our new Ranger Crackle Paints!


...great Stocking Stuffers. This craft knife from Doodlebug is just plain cute. And I want one. Pretty please.
(psst! There's a setting mat to match!)
Add it to your Wish List* there's still time!
(*see in-store for details)

Oh Heidi!

I use to dislike Heidi Swapp. I did, because her products were always a little bit tricky to use, and the average scrapbooker just didn't buy them. But she's a smart cookie! Her products are so trendy that you just WANT them. Check out these metallic crown rub-ons. Love. favourite prodcut of the moment is this variety pack of mini ghost shapes (pictured below). I don't think it gets much better than these. So cute, so easy to use (staple them, paint them, stitch them on....) and you get a little of everything (I love the hearts!). Tell your hubby to RUN to the store to pick these up (and stash them in your stocking), I gaurantee they are going to fly out the door...

Please stop....

I don't even want to THINK about St.Valentines day..... well, this stuff is pretty cute! Amazing how much in advance we retailers must think, the Valentines stuff is arriving already! Ok, so you're in the Christmas Spirit (so am I) but this stuff is so cute. I mean, really cute, I love it. Put it on your wishlist & you'll be ahead of the game.
Check out the adorable Chipboard, Patterned Paper, Stickers (felt!), Glitter Paper (i Love it!) & all kinds of cute kits.

I have to have this.....

.... under my tree! ( Note to Brian!) It spins so that I can get at my tools from all sides and it's cute! mm does it again. I just love them.

This cute chipboard album from Maya Road is a great little stocking stuffer. All you need is glue & a sanding block & this album will be totally cute.... Put it on your wishlist or pretty it up for someone you love.


mm Noteworthy 3-ring binders are here. Finally a binder-style album that's cute (not with gold embellishments!)

Pure Genius!

Before you go putting together your calendar scrapbooks this year (a popular Chirstmas gift!), consider this....... Heidi Swapp makes a calendar that has page protectors that you can insert your finished layouts into. At the end of the year, instead of throwing the calendar away, it turns into a scrapbook by simply rotating the pages. Brilliant! Another option: Next year when mom-in-law asks for another calendar (and she will!) you can just give her inserts to refill this strudy book. It also comes with number stickers for each month.....
I made a calendar for my mother-in-law about 4 years ago. It was a lot of work. I swore I would never do it again becuase who knows where it ended up. But this year, a I am giving her a Heidi Swapp Calendar full of family photos.... knowing that next year, with a new baby, I will likely be making another set of layouts (and saving money on the book!)!
