It's time to start thinking about Christmas. We had a beautiful fall and it doesn't seem time to start to wonder where in the world we moved the Christmas things when everything got rearranged after the tornado. We have some great papers to make cards with. The BoBunny's Winter Joy line in purple and green is a fun variation of the normal red and green. I made a card using the Winter Joy Stripe paper, cut out a Christmas Tree with the Sizzix Tree, Christmas Star & Stand #656738 out of Best Creation Glitter Paper Light Purple. I added garland to the tree with Stampendous flock,
We have gotten in some great products in the last few weeks. From Sugar Tree we now have some great wildlife paper, One has moose, dear, big horn sheep or goats and elk. Another is a fall farm scene with a barn and 2 deer running across the field with a green tractor. If you like loons we have a pair of loons with a baby in a wooded lake with a cabin in the distance. We have a log cabin on the lake, and a cream colored background with Wilderness campgound, Wilderness lodge saying and fish, bears and canoes. We also have one paper with elephants, tigers, lions etc. that says ZOO.
For sports fans we have new baseball paper, and for the Albert Lea fans we have a tiger stripe paper and some tiger stickers. From Scrapbook Customs, formally Stamping Station we have Albert Lea High School paper back in stock. We also have a gold and maroon words that says gophers; blue and red words that says twins; and gold and purple paper that say vikings. We have also done some cut outs in those colors with the same words.
If you have a die cut machine we have gotten new diecuts and embossing envelopes from Sizzix and from Cuddlebug. We also have some Spellbinders die cuts. We recently got our order in from Stampendous with lots of fun new stamps, 5 packs of heat embossing powders, glitter or flock and glitter in lots of fun colors.
