Card Class by Karen and Deb will be here before you know it.....July 26th @ 6pm. If you can't make it to class, you can always sign up for a kit. And remember our kits are pre-cut for you, because we like to spoil you! :)
Just to let you know we have NEW product on the way, we've been checking out all the new paper and goodies from CHA and ordered like crazy!
A huge selection of dies from Poppy Stamps, Kaisercraft, Bo Bunny, darling Autumn Harvest and Hallowe'en by Reminisce, Christmas Day by Carta Bella, Basic Grey - Lucille, Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic. We've also had several requests for Authentique - Glory, Disney Winnie the Pooh paper and embellishments, Art Bin - Magnetic Die holders and refill pages and SO much more!
...transforming the store for our 4th year Anniversary Crop! Wanna see some of the goodies in store for you? Here's a peek:
Look at this beautiful new line, Parisian Anthology, from House of Three for Pink Paislee. You'll love these subtle papers with tone on tone designer resist and their darling trims and embellishements called, what else? "Ruffle Darlings", "Flower Darlings" and "Flair".
Here we have just a taste of one of our new lines of Webster's Pages called Hollywood Vogue. Notice anything else in the picture? (Like rolls and rolls of beautiful flower trim?) Yes, we love it too!!
And...you know how we like to get a theme going for our two day crops? Here's a little peek behind the curtain, so to speak. Can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
OK, we must say we love it right after CHA, all of the pretty new paper and embellishments are being delivered. It's so exciting to open all of the boxes - it's hard to decided which one first!
Webster's Pages has arrived and they are just as beautiful as we remembered from the show. It will be really hard to decide which collection you like best. We've received Garden Gala, Lullaby Lane, Life's Portrait and Seaside Retreat. This time WP added vellum pages as well as die cuts, they are truly beautiful!
Flower Soft - lots of pretty colors to choose from!
Making Memories Ribbon Storage Boxes
(apron.ology) by Somerset Studios
Teresa Collins Haute Cuisine cooking paper, great for cook books and recipe boxes.
Graphic 45 Christmas Past Collection, beautiful double sided paper.
Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Collection, very pretty cooking papers and tag embellishments.
Webster's Pages, Sweet as Cherry Pie collection.
Webster's Pages, Nature's Storybook collection.
Webster's Pages, Postcards from Paris Sampler Kit and Prima Flowers
Prima Flowers - well we should say what's left of them! We had a bit of a FLOWER FRENZY this weekend at our all day crop - we decided to pull the box of Primas out of the back room and surprise the ladies...well they surprised us and this is what happened!
And this is what's left!!!
The GOOD news is there are more Prima's on the way!
Okay, okay, we realize we're a tad bit tardy here posting about the joys of CHA (still playing catch up here, ladies!) but have we got some eye candy for you.
It would be impossible to choose just ONE favorite thing from this mega shopping trip otherwise known as CHA (plus we realize now that we don't even have photos from all of the companies we ordered from), so we invite you to enjoy a stroll with us through CHA...
Feeling Fancy? Here's a taste of their new Kraft Kuts line:
Webster's Pages has beautiful new lines with some deeper colors along with loads of beautiful new trims. (Yes, we ordered lots of paper and lots of trim - you'll love it all!)
New magazines in da' house (almost)! Tired of the usual CK fare? Yep, us too, so, coming soon to your favorite store (Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, of course) are magazines and specialty issues from Stampington / Somerset! You are going to be so inspired by the beautiful projects in these magazines! Just don't let Karen fool you if she calls them Sunset. :)
Next up is pretty, pretty Prima. Besides their beautiful flowers, they have flocked transparencies and some papers that we can't wait to surprise you with. :)
We have pictures of samples made by our very own Christie Bryant for the Graphic 45 booth! Beautiful as always Christie and G45 too!! (Christie's samples are the red and blue book on the 3rd shelf, and the banner in the next picture.) Rachiel got to check out ALL of their paper lines in person - how do you ever pick a favorite?
Teresa Collins makes the most amazing mini book samples and you can tell that we were all inspired by her after CHA last winter (just take a look back at some of the cool classes you took here over the last year). Teresa has done it again with her new paper lines, transparencies, stamps and accessories - you're going to love it!
Don't you love the work of this artist, Wendy Vecchi? We will be carrying some of her Studio 490 stamps from Stamper's Anonymous. Look at the gorgeous flowers she made using her Studio 490 stamps, Ranger inks and the new Tim Holtz Grunge Paper:
Another reason we love CHA is that the displays can be so inspiring. What do you think of this 7 gypsies chandelier???
We did some serious damage at the Sassafras Lass booth...check out a sampling of their new Vintage Yummy line! Yummy, isn't it?
And talk about cool displays! Sassafras Lass has these great display windows around the outside of their booth with oversized ideas from their new lines. Check out the window and then the close up of the flower. What's that there? Oh yeah, they used the inside of a padded bubble envelope - so great!
We hope you enjoyed your stroll through CHA - be on the lookout for tons of new stuff rolling in over the next couple of months. :) (There's so much we haven't even mentioned yet like Cosmo Cricket, Melissa Frances, Jenni Bowlin, Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, Maya Road, BasicGrey, K&Company, Making Memories, imaginice, Best Creations, Graphic 45, Art Glitter, Dream Street, paper mache for projects and much, much more!)
Also, keep your eyes peeled because we'll be updating our calendar and sending a newsletter in the next couple of days.
And - last but not least: To tide you over until the new stuff starts rolling in, we want you to know we hauled three huge bags of goodies (2 extra suitcases!) all the way back from SoCal - so we're freshly stocked on new ribbons, trims and flowers!
(FYI - this picture was taken while walking into the BasicGrey booth at CHA in Chicago this summer. Hel-lo! Who wouldn't you want to hug it???)
Tracy’s stopping into Paradise for a visit (all the way from Chicago), so we’re celebrating by having Double Punch Day on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Pop in to check out the latest goodies or just to say hello!
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS: Tracy’s “Life’s Little Comforts” 6x6 album class is Thursday, Sept. 18. She couldn’t wait to snag the new Webster’s Pages papers for her class and has created a mini album full of color, pearls, flowers, and lace (all of which are little comforts in her life). This is the perfect album to display pictures and lists of the things that bring you comfort: family, friends, your home, a pet, or the really important things like paper and ribbon. :) Stop in Thursday for a visit!
