This would make a great gift for a Grad to put in their new dorm room!

Black ink

Black Journal Pen

Paper Trimmer

Paint Brush

Favorite Adhesive/Strong Adhesive

Strong Scissors

Hole Punch and Eyelet Setter

1” inch Circle Punch

Call the store to reserve your spot! See ya then!


QuicKutz is Opening their Vault!

Welcome Back Zelda!

The Collector's Series is a new program where we "open the QuicKutz vault" and bring back a favorite discontinued product in a new, revamped collector's format. Unlike the standard silver dies, a Collector's Series product will have a unique color and come in special packaging, emphasizing its exclusivity and rareness. These dies will only be available in limited quantities with no opportunity for reorders. Once these limited edition products are gone, they'll be back in the vault for good.

The first product QuicKutz is bringing back is the quirky and fun Zelda alphabet! This long-time favorite was originally released back in 2003 in Classic size on 2x2 dies. As a Collector's Edition, Zelda will be bigger and better than ever, released in Grand size and on seven 4x8 dies (sold together) with a retail value of $99.99.

Expected arrival date: June ~ To see the entire alphabet http://

Yard Sale Reminder!

The Yard Sale is tomorrow through Sunday! If our backroom is a reflection of the what is being sold, this is the biggest yard sale ever! I'm feeling claustrophobic back here and cannot wait to move this stuff out and into the classroom! Speaking of which, just a friendly reminder, that due to the yard sale, the classroom (and die cut machine) will be out of service from late this afternoon until Monday afternoon when everything is packed back up.

Some Glimmer Mist Cards...

I've been playing around with some of the new Glimmer Mist colors that I picked up last weekend. Love them! I am planning to showcase them in my April cards class so if you are interested, sign up!!

Here are a couple cards I made yesterday...

The tulips are watercolored with Glimmer Mist. I used Stickles to add even more sparkle to this Spring card!

I made the background using Glimmer Mist and one of the Tattered Angel Screens. I also spritzed the flowers with the mist to add some more sparkle! The picture isn't doing this card justice...

I am loving the new spring like colors they came out with!!
