Stamp Zia is back :-)

If you missed Stamp Zia last month, don't fret she will be here again on May 29th, 30th and May 31st with 7 new classes.

Wow, what a group of talented ladies. We had beginners to the experienced stampers take her classes but you would never guess, because everyone's work was outstanding. No two pieces of art work looked alike. Unfortunately we forgot to take group pictures at the end of each class, but we did take pictures of everyone working. Zia gave out a door prize at each of her classes. Teresa was the lucky one won a signed piece of artwork from Zia for the first to sign up for all six classes. Sorry Teresa you lost on this trip as someone else signed up first for all 7 classes.

Zia is doing another special for May's classes--sign up for all 7 classes and save $50. What a bargain, it's a free class (of equal or lesser value).

Save 15% when you sign up for 3 or more classes.

Save 10% when you sign for all classes any one day.

Circles, circles everywhere

Good morning everyone :-)

we are really excited today because we are starting our very first challenge! We will be hosting several challenges on this blog. You have one week to submit your entries by either emailing us the picture of your card, scrapbook layout, other paper crafts....or if it is already on your blog you can simply leave a comment on the challenge post with a link to your entry. At the end of the week we will use a random number generator and select a winner for a cool prize! How cool is that?

Well, let's get started! Our first challenge is all about CIRCLES! Share your favorite project where you used circles. It could be just one big circles or many more....perhaps it is even a scalloped circle. We want to see circles lol so let's start by showing some of our designer submissions:

What's the prize for this challenge? EK's Circle Scissor Plus (est. at $29.95) Once you cut your circles with this tool you will never want to try anything else! It is great for cutting pictures the perfect circles to match your scrapbook layouts. You can cut a circle the size you want with the turn of a dial! You can also use it with a pen/pencil to draw a circle.
