Fran Kawakami had a full class last wednesday night. It had been sold out for approximately a month. Until the evening of the class nobody had seen the class samples. Cute, simple, elegant are the words that come to mind in describing Fran's beautiful cards. I thought you would like to see her designs so I'll include them in this bolg posting. Fran uses a combination of the new Mulberry Paper, paper flowers, various punches, and appropriate quotes to create some truly wonderful and meaningful cards cards. I encourage everyone to come into the store and see them in person. Bring your camera and take a picture or two. Great job Fran.

I reviewed Fran's classes for August and we have one opening for the Wednesday, Aug. 8th class. The class on August 22 is sold out. We are taking reservations for September and I believe October will be the last of Fran's classes for the year. She always takes a well deserved break for the upcoming holidays. Should I be talking about Christmas in July?
Priscilla's "Craft Snack and Tidbit session scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday - July 29th will involve making a card that she is calling "Dragon's Greeting". Those of you that have the time to come in and make the card will have a lot of fun. The dragon is a Dreamweaver design and the color is applied using Copic pens and the air brush. Other elements include a "Ring Background" stamp from Memory Box, barbecue skewers, and a fantastic border punch from EK Success. The session starts at 1pm and goes to 4pm (or as long as the kits last). It's free, but we do ask, if you can, to donate a dollar to the basket for the "Food Bank".

New in the store:
Memory Box dies are still a very "hot item" in the store. There are few left of each design, but several have sold out. Priscilla will be placing another order. Please let us know if you have a favorite or two that you would like to see us bring into the store. I'm assembling a list to meet your needs.
A delivery from Sizzix arrived on Wednesday and I could barely get the box open before people were asking if they could acquire an item or two. Your going to love the new border punches that Priscilla has available for you. They have a design that is Asian and they are really well constructed. Priscilla uses one of them in the "Craft Snacks and Tidbits" session mentioned above. Also new in the store is the ever popular embossing folders. Something that I'm excited about is a new tool that you can use with you embossing folders. It's a "Diffuser" that allows you to emboss parts of the folder design. It will leave areas "free" for you to stamp, print, and embellish. Also new in the store are some new dies from Tim Holtz and the magnetic trey that works extremely well in the "Big Shot".
Well, I think that's all for tonight..... I'll see you tomorrow
