Store Chit Chat

New Products are coming in and we have made some . . . .

Written by Michelle Mccosh


If you haven’t been here for a while you are in for a pleasant surprise.  We have been moving the store around to make room for an expanded class room and products that have been arriving almost daily.  We have been cleaning up the mixed media area and added a designated die cut area.


In January we introduced a new #essplanner kit that we have been shipping out of state but, if you are lucky enough to live near the store we offer a free workshop when you get the kit.

Here is a testimonial from one of our participants Pattie F:

 “I am really enjoying the monthly book kits. I use them as a cross between a diary and a scrapbook. And since they are so fun to embellish I don’t get too hard on myself if i don’t write something every day.”


Our ATC swap started again in January, with an all new theme.

This year we have decided to do a technique series based on Industry Artists.

The interpretation is yours (does this artist remind you of a particular color, product or technique)

For instance Tim Holtz is known for his worn vintage look, the color brown and some seriously cool techniques.  This artist is easy to think of something to do.  and you probably already have his products in your stash.  Pick one of his techniques and use his stamps or ephemera on top.  Julie Nutting is know for her paper dolls.  Karen Burniston is known for her Pop Ups.  (so this card should use a Pop Up in some way)



If you don’t live locally you are welcome to mail yours in and we will do the trade for you.


February we had Kelly Kilmer come in and teach some awesome Art Journaling classes.

Coming up this week we have our Annual Retreat and this year we have Dyan Reaveley and Teesha Moore teaching our workshops there.


Cat Kerr will be here on March 25th to teach a  Mini Book Pendant Cat has been published many times in Somerset Studio, Cloth Paper Scissors, Belle Amoire Jewelery and more.  Click here for more details
