Hump Day will return September 2nd!

Just a reminder that Hump Day will return September 2. There will be no layout today as Carley is packing for her return to College. We wish all the best for Carley and look forward to her visits during breaks!

In store today ~ New Glue Glider Pro by Glue Arts. Heard great things about this adhesive. It is perfect for bonding, joining, mounting and assembly of any paper, plastic, wood, metal, stone, glass, foam and more and at $14.99 it is considerably cheaper than any other on the market.
Kokuyo is no longer shipping to the US and we are unable to get any more in the store so when our stock is gone, it is gone....
**We carry the refills for the Glue Glider Pro, they are $8.99.**

Tonight, we will be putting out the Cosmo Cricket 12x12 chipboard, stickers, rub-ons, Double Decks & 6x6 pads that have finally arrived!

New Product Review!

American Craft's Christmas line, a little bit for everyone and some great prints for cardmakers. Papers are glittered, glazed and smooth! New thickers for everyone, too!

American Craft's adorable boy and sports line.
How about a little smooch?!? Hey now, not that kind of smooch! Smooch inks come in these sleek nail polish look alike containers and are available in several colors. Simply use the foam tip applicator to brush the color on whatever surface you desire...paper, cardstock, clay, glass and fabric. It's completely acid free and archival safe.

Core'dinations cardstock comes in several variations. First, their ColorCore Cardstock (which looks very similar to Bazzill) has a core color which "core'dinates" with the surface color. We all know that if you picked a Bazzill Blue, it would be the same blue on the front, on the back and in between. The difference with Core'dinations is that there is one color on the front, then a different (but matching) color in the middle and on the back. You can add your own creative touch by sanding, tearing or embossing.Each sheet is a heavy weight 80 lb. cardstock that is acid and lignin free (of course!). And, just like Bazzill, there is a canvas texture on one side and a smooth side on the other.
There are several video tutorials on the Core'dinations website that can be found here.

The Whitewash Collection is a collection of colors under a white wash finish. For example, let's say you choose the Barn Siding white wash color (white on top, red on the bottom) and embossed it with your QuicKutz Diamond embossing folder. With a piece of sandpaper, you could lightly sand the top of the paper. The white wash color would actually sand off the Diamond shapes (which were raised because you embossed them) and reveal the red color underneath. Check out all the white wash colors here.

The Vintage Collection appears to have been "pre-sanded"...a special technique that makes the cardstock look vintage without the work. Check out those colors here.

The Chocolate Box collection offers varying shades of brown on top and yummy colors hidden beneath! See those colors here.

Don't be fooled by the black surface of Black Magic...with a little sanding tearing or embossing, you can uncover the vivid core colors hidden beneath the texture! A huge hit with cardmakers, you'll be amazed by the versatility of this line. See all the colors here.
Yes, we know it's a LOT to digest, but trust will absolutely LOVE what Core'dinations has to offer. And for all you Bazzill lovers...don't worry...this does NOT take the place of our Bazzill collection. It only adds to it! Afterall, what is the one thing we use on pretty much every single one of our layouts/cards/projects? CARDSTOCK! and just imagine the possibilities with QuicKutz' Embossing folders.....

Love Jenni Bowlin and her new Town Square line is beautiful! Reds, browns & cream. New rub-ons in photographer's mark, new chipboard buttons, and so much more.

Pink Paislee's Twilight...
There is no need to worry about what might be lurking in the shadows this halloween season. Delightful tricks and treats await those who dare to go out after dusk.

Hayrides, bonfires, and a warm cozy sweater all add up to the perfect autumn evening. This fall collection will be perfect for each and every one of your pilgrim pictures.

Dew Drops are another sweet find. They are lightly colored jewels that add dimension to your scrapbook pages and cards. They look great when highlighting subjects such as flowers, autumn leaves and water. Click here to check out their blog for some sample ideas.

VIP Events at CHA

Yes, I know I have been terribly lacking in posting this week! I was incredibly busy last week looking at new product, placing orders and meeting with our vendors. Here is a slide show of our first day we arrived. We attended several VIP events including Making Memories, Creative Imaginations, Fiskars. Fiskars brought us behind the scenes at the Disney World to see the Illuminations show. Laurie had a blast! She got to meet lots of people she loves, including Margie.

More pictures to come over the next couple of days...
