Days are getting shorter.

Well, now that it finally feels like fall.... I hear we are actually going to have highs in only the 60s next week.  Makes it all more real that Christmas is only two months away.  I love this time of year though. Decorating for Halloween, Thanksgiving and then for Christmas. So many Pinterest ideas, so little time. 

Lots of great new paper lines and embellishments for fall and the holidays in the store. Prima, Carta Bella, Kaisercraft, Simple Stories, Echo Park, just to name a few.  We are stuffed to the gills with festive goodies.
 Oh and the Tim Holtz and Ranger products are a lot of fun. We just got some bristle trees in that are ready for new homes. 

Our Mixed Media corner is growing. Stencils, stamps, mediums, paints, journals and watercolor paper of all sizes. Just got our first shipment of coloring books in too. What better way to relax a little. Remember how much you loved to color. It can be quite therapeutic.

We hope to see you soon. 
Be inspired! And create!

Kids are back in school! Fall is around the corner.

We hope that means you will have some more time to be creative, and get back to those projects. Did you "pin" a ton of projects over the summer? Are your camera and phone loaded with pictures? Now's the time to hit restart. Print off those pictures, gather up the tidbits you collected on your trip, find that favorite Pin. Put yourself on the calendar. There is time between school and sports for you to carve out for these projects.

We have a store full to the brim of paper and embellishments for scrapbooks and cards. Sizzix wall is full, and more is on the way. We also have a great selection of Mixed Media Products for all your other projects. Dylusions paints, Color Burst, stencils and stamps to name a few. Check out our Art Journaling night on Friday August 28th with Daniela. Come and play with an assortment of product. This is a great way to try something different and get those creative juices flowing.

Oh, and did we mention Christmas is only 20 Fridays away.  Just had to say it.

Summer's here!

First day of summer was on Sunday, and boy oh boy Mother Nature did not disappoint.  It's HOT! If you are getting stir crazy being stuck inside due to the heat, and cringe every time you hear the air conditioner kick on, pack up your goodies and come on down to the store. Work on a project or start a new project.  We are here from 10am to 6pm with the air conditioner on, come and hang out with us and create.

We are so excited!  Ken Oliver's coming! He will be teaching TWO awesome classes on Sunday August 2nd.  A Hometown Mini Album and a Color Burst Watercolor Journal. He will be using all kinds of products (even some new stuff) and showing you tons of techniques. Check out the Classes tab for additional information.  This is going to be a Sell Out for sure and a whole lot of FUN!

And speaking of fun - Vacation time - take lots of pictures!  We have a huge variety of summer and outdoor themed papers and embellishments. 

Give us a call if you are looking for something in particular.  If we don't have it in stock, we can order it for you (if it's still available).  Just let us know.

FYI - we will be closed Friday July 3rd and Saturday July 4th. Enjoy your weekend.  See you soon!

So much going on, so little time

Our calendar is filling up with all kinds of great classes and crops.  Check out our Classes tab for the pictures and descriptions. New teachers, new groups and new techniques.

Want to get started with art journaling? Then you should meet Daniela Costa. Your first class will include a journal for you to do all your work in.  Then Daniela will have monthly workshops here with wonderful new techniques and ideas for your journal.

Carrie Papazian is designing some of the most exciting Disney inspired two page layout kits.  The first set of which will arrive here on June 13th.  Limited quantities, so reserve yours today. 

Shelley Schubert has designed a beautiful 12x12 canvas using Color Blooms, gesso and modeling paste.

And Daniela's Vintage canvas ...  oh the list goes on.  We are so excited.

Of course we are here for your cropping time. Come down anytime during our regular hours and crop for free (call us before you come on a Saturday to make sure a class isn't taking up all the room). Don't forget our First Friday and Third Saturday when we stay open late - reservations suggested, (small fee for table space).

We welcome our friends from Scrapbook Territory!

We were saddened to hear about the closing of Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley.  It's like finding out your clubhouse has been closed down. It's so hard to see a small business disappear from any of our downtowns.

Come visit us in Dixon and give us a try. We've got paper galore with embellishments and ribbon. Bazzill cardstock, tools, Ink, glitter, oh the list is endless.  We can special order for you also.   During our regular hours we have space for cropping and creating and offer two late night crops on the First Friday and the Third Saturday. Do you have a group that would like to get together for a day of crafting? Give us a call and reserve the room.

New lines and product has been coming in weekly, now that the ports have released the containers.

And we are scheduling classes.  Save the date for 7/11 for Julie Nutting and 8/2 for Ken Oliver.  Details are still being finalized for these two classes so stayed tuned.

Scrapbook paper, embellishments, ink, glitter and glue galore!

CHA Mega Show was amazing.  So many new great products to choose from.  The first shipments have started to arrive this week.  New blending markers from Chameleon Pens was first to arrive. Click on the link to read all about them. They are great!  And Ken Oliver's new Stick It Adhesive is here too.  Ultra-thin two sided tape that works like a dream.

We came home with at least 30 lbs of catalogs. Thankfully the others were digital....  We learned a lot from Art Venture, put on by Prima, the CHA workshops and all the make-n-takes.  Worked with a lot of new mediums; gessos, gels, pastes, inks, etc. Made all kinds of things like cards, books, bags, tags and more! And talked to the designers about coming to the store to teach in 2015. More updates soon.
