It really has been too long since our last post! We are very busy this summer, gearing up for the fair and working on a big project which we hopefully will be able to reveal to you soon.
We also have been stocking the shelves with goodies. We have a couple of new colors of Cricut Vinyl in stock, like a gorgeous lime green and a warm burnt orange.
I love the summer-y colors of BoBunny's Love Shack line. I can envision so many pretty, feminine pages. Too bad I have only boys. We do also have in stock some of the U Bug Me line from BoBunny that would be perfect for boy pages!
Maybe I can make my boys some pages using some of the new Kaisercraft papers. We've had lots of requests for camouflage and military themed paper. This one seemed to fit the bill. One of the pages has a side full of quotes and title for dads, men, heroes, and more.
We also finally have a few Copic colors in stock. We've decided to start out with a few and add a couple more colors each month. If you've taken any of the Stamp of the Month classes, chances are you've used the Copic Sketch Markers. They are an alcohol based marker, which makes them wonderful for blending. The alcohol also makes laying the color easy. You can intensify the color by going over it again after it is dry. Each marker is dual-ended, with a fine brush end, and a chiseled wide end. If you like coloring your stamped images, these are definitely the markers for you. We also carry the colorless blender, which is great for "lifting" the ink to create patterns and effects. It also works well for "floating" color from other markers for a watercolor effect.
Leave a comment below if you have used Copics before and what you think of them! Stop in to see more of the new products also!
